Mini Implants are about half the size of traditional implant, and therefore don't require as much bone structure. With less bone needed, costly, painful and time-consuming bone grafts that are usually necessary with traditional implants are not usually needed for minis.
Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure---requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits to the dentist's office
Because they are less invasive, and don't require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.
In most cases, the mini implant is less than half the cost of a traditional implant.
Implants are made out of titanium---the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay and periodontal disease
Implants preserve your natural bone stucture so you can maintain the shape of your face and avoid continued bone loss where teeth are missing
