Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are a slightly different type of implant, as the actual implant is narrower and uses a screw instead of a post.
Originally introduced during the 1980s, the FDA accepted mini dental implants as a suitable long-term implant solution in 1999.
The diameter of mini dental implants can range from as little as 1.8 mm, up to 2.9 mm. The implant screws range from 10 mm to 18 mm in length, and the length of the screw determines the strength of the implant rather than its diameter.
The design is different, too, as mini dental implants are often fabricated as a one-piece unit that integrates the abutment that protrudes above the gumline, instead of as a conventional two-piece dental implant where the post and the abutment are separate. The procedure to insert mini dental implants is slightly different as they are placed directly through the gum tissue, eliminating the need for stitches.
At our dental implant practice in Brooklyn use mini dental implants in specific situations and where traditional-sized dental implants aren’t suitable. Typically, they are used to replace small lower incisors or other teeth where there isn’t room for a traditional larger width implant. Mini dental implants are exceptionally useful for securing loose dentures and especially when a person has significant jawbone deterioration and who is unsuitable or who do not wish to have bone graft surgery to build up their jawbone.
