Mini dental implants are an alternative to traditional dental implants but are typically used in situations that require stabilization such as lower jaw dentures. Like traditional dental implants, mini dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with the purpose to maintain good oral health. They are advantageous even to patients who have experienced significant bone loss. They are also used to firmly secure & hold dentures into place, providing a more trustworthy & efficient way to secure them over adhesives that can slip out of place. Mini dental implants are less invasive, heal faster, & have shorter procedure times. Typically at least four mini implants are required to secure the denture.
