At the Bilski Dental Group, we like to provide as many treatment options as possible to our patients. A common solution for missing teeth is dental implants, but they can be expensive, require amble bone structure, and more. One alternative to regular dental implants are mini dental implants.
Mini implants were developed as a temporary solution to missing teeth, but as they are used more and more often, they have become a more popular long-lasting solution.
There are a few reasons why a patient might choose mini implants vs. standard dental implants, but the most common reasons are that they are more affordable and they are smaller, so they do not require as much bone to be implanted.
The mini implants have shorter posts, so they are a great option for people who do not have the bone structure for standard implants. However, standard implants could be an option for these types of patients, but a bone graft would be an additional part of the procedure. This is why some patients opt for the minis.
When choosing to go with mini implants, one thing to note is that you will likely need more implants than with standard.
Overall, mini implants are a good choice for some patients, whereas standard dental implants could be better for others. If you want to find out which is better for you, contact us today at the Bilski Dental Group to learn more!
