Mini Implants

 

Mini Implants -- March 25, 2015


While dental implants are a great solution for replacing missing teeth, in Renton, WA, we use mini dental implants as an effective alternative in situations where regular implants cannot be used, such as in narrow spaces. Roughly half the size in diameter as conventional implants, mini implants are often used to replace smaller teeth in the mouth, as well as serve as a base for dentures.

Because mini implants are so small, often no incision is needed to place them in the gums. They can usually be inserted through the gum and into the bone directly, which eliminates much of the recovery time and allows the restoration to be placed immediately or shortly after. Like regular implants, mini implants are made of titanium. However, they are one solid piece, which give them roughly the same strength as a regular implant.

If you want to know if implants or mini implants are the right solution for your missing teeth, call (425) 271-7725 to schedule an appointment.
