So mini implants are fantastic in several regards, one in situations where we don't have a lot of bone or we typically use a more conventional size implant, it can be a good option to give patients some stability, whether it be an a denture or single missing teeth that just have an issue with available space for us to do an implant. They can also be really handy and really beneficial in situations where we need them to function as sort of an interim implant. So if we're waiting for other implants to heal in certain surgical situations, mini implants can be really helpful to give us some ability to hold or maintain a denture or some other sort of dental appliance while the more conventional implants are healing for a patient.

Going Small Can Be The Better Choice
Restorative dentistry is better than ever because of the development of implants. With implants, dental crowns, bridges, and dentures feel and function practically as well as natural teeth. You also won’t need to use denture adhesives to hold your new teeth in place.
Unfortunately, many people live with traditional dentures for years before they get frustrated with how easily they move around, whether they are trying to speak or trying to eat. As a result of wearing dentures for so long, they may have too much bone loss to support standard implants. One option would be to get a bone graft, a kind of bone tissue transplant to rebuild their jaw.
Another option is to get mini implants. Since they are smaller, they often can be used when standard implants won’t work. Mini implants offer the same benefits as standard implants, and the recovery time is faster with minis. This can spare you the cost of a bone graft and the recovery time.
