Many dental implants are basically an implant that you can use in areas where in the past you couldn't. We've got implants that are five millimeters by seven, which is probably as short as you want to go, but you can put those into places before where were the anatomy of a person's mouth was not able. You couldn't do it before, whether it'd be a low sinus, or a nerve, or a blood vessel that was close to the surface of the bone. But now, with mini implants, you're able to put them into narrow ridges, like in the lower front area. Yeah. It's a great thing. The amount of implants we have now, we can pretty much put in any place in your mouth, and before you couldn't. That's what mini implants have done here for us anyway. We’re able to put pretty much implants in any area of the mouth.

Explore Your Tooth Replacement Options Using Mini Implants
Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Hsue can insert into your jawbone. After a period of healing, your new implants will be fully fused with your bone and ready to support new teeth. Some people, however, are not good candidates for traditional implants because they require a sufficient amount of healthy bone for proper fusing.
That’s where mini implants come in. If your jawbone is weak and a bone graft procedure is not an option for you, then mini implants can be used in place of standard-sized implants. These small posts offer you all the advantages of standard implants, including keeping your jawbone strong and healthy. Implants, whether standard or mini, improve your jawbone health by reducing jawbone deterioration over time, which helps preserve your facial structure.
Mini teeth implants are designed similarly to their larger counterparts, but their smaller size means that:
- They need less bone material for the fusing process (known as osseointegration)
- The procedure to place them is simpler and less invasive
- Your healing will be quicker and more comfortable
When your mini implants are ready to anchor your new teeth, you may have several options available, including dental crowns, implant bridges, and implant dentures.
