Mini dental implants vs dental implants:
Mini-implants are surgical titanium implants that can be put into function (under a denture, under a bridge, or under a crown) on the same day that they are placed. They are smaller diameter implants (1.8 mm to 2.5mm) and can even be used where conventional implants do not have enough room.
How can mini dental implants help you?
They can be used for orthodontic anchorage, for single unit crowns, to retain fixed bridgework and for secure retention of partial or full dentures. They make it possible to floss between your teeth just as you did with your natural teeth. They make it possible to live as close as possible as you did with your natural teeth. Nothing touching the roof of your mouth.
Are you a good candidate for mini dental implants?
The criteria for all implant success is bone. You must have the right type, width, and height of bone.
How much do mini dental implants cost?
Mini dental implants generally range from $750 to $950 per implant depending on the diameter and what type of crown or denture you will need placed on top of it. Conventional implants are about $4,000 per implant.
How long do mini dental implants last?
This is dependent on patient health and the condition of the bone in the placement site. We generally assume mini dental implants will be very long-term as long as the patient takes care of his mouth and comes in for regular check-ups.
Complete treatment and fitting can be done in just a few hours, by a trained doctor like Dr. Bertolini. He has been certified in and placing mini dental implants for over 15 years.
