Mini-implants or narrow implants allow the possible placement in limited bone areas. These 2-3mm wide implants can be placed between adjacent teeth or roots where space is limited or in situations where there is only thin jawbone remaining. Patients who have been advised that they might need bone augmentation for regular width implants may also be candidates for immediate placement of the mini-implant technique.
Many patients that have trouble using dentures and cannot afford or are not candidates for full implant treatment can often use mini-implants to stabilize, secure and allow comfort in chewing and speech. There are times when mini-implants can be placed and dentures attached the same day. By seeking a consultation and bringing your dentures it is possible to find out just how affordable and convenient min-implants can be. FOR FURTHER INFO CALL 1-877 SMILE DOC (764-5336)
