Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Mini Dental Implants Explained

What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Mini Dental Implants ¬†(MDI’S) are Titanium alloy devices that have a smaller diameter than traditional dental implants. Mini dental implants can integrate easily with bone tissue to take the place of the root of your tooth. The mini dental implant creates a secure support for a bridge, a set of dentures or porcelain crowns, effectively replacing missing teeth.

What Is the Difference Between Standard Dental Implants and Mini Dental Implants?

In contrast to traditional implants, the Mini Dental Implant procedure is less costly and less invasive. Mini implants are much smaller than traditional implants and can be placed without surgical incision into the gum tissue. Additionally, given the small size of mini implants, bone grafting and sinus augmentation is rarely necessary. Simply put, the mini dental implants fit the existing bone versus the bone having to be grafted to fit the dental implant.

What Is the Mini Dental Implant Procedure Like?

The Mini Dental Implant procedure starts with a consultation from a member of our expert clinical staff, and our Doctor. Arizona Mini Dental Implant Center will conduct a thorough evaluation, followed by a series of X-Rays (if needed) to establish bone density before inserting the implant. Dr. Travis Evans reviews each treatment plan for the most effective and affordable dental implant procedure. Since the procedure and placement is determined by how much bone you have, we can offer you options including traditional dental implants. Our commitment is to give you the most affordable at the highest quality plan available.

Initially, the mini dental implant is positioned with a temporary tooth, allowing up to twelve weeks for bone tissue integration. Following that, we evaluate the success of the procedure and take one last impression. If the mini dental implant has integrated successfully we can restore the missing teeth. In most cases we send the final restorations to our lab and you receive the final setting within two weeks. In cases where you only need a single tooth replaced, we use our in house Cerec technology and you have the final tooth while you wait.

How Long do Dental Implants Last?

Mini Dental Implants are comprised of Titanium, a biocompatible material that can last a lifetime. The implants can be used as a temporary device or a long-term replacement for missing teeth. With proper care, the implant-supported crown, bridge or denture can last for several decades. Ask about our warranty.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Mini Dental Implants?

Most patients are candidates for Mini Dental Implants. Since mini dental implants require less bone density, establishing candidacy is much easier than with traditional implants. we offer a complimentary consultation to determine your candidacy. You will be able to ask all your questions and find out the cost and how long the treatment could take.

What Are the Risks and Complications of the Procedure?

The Mini Dental Implant system is a safe and effective procedure backed by FDA-approval. However, as with all surgical procedures, mini dental implants carry some degree of risk. Accordingly, it is important to carefully follow the instructions of the Arizona Mini Dental implant Centers clinical staff in order to minimize the possibility of infection and ensure the success of your procedure.

Arizona Mini Dental Implant Center also provides a two-year warranty for all dental implants, dentures and crowns. During rare instances in which implants fail to integrate, we will cover the replacement at no charge.

What Is the Cost for Mini Dental Implants?

In North America dental implants range in cost ($2000 to $5000 per implant and crown) to patients. Because each patient have different needs the only way to get an accurate estimate of cost is to have a treatment plan created by a qualified dental provider. Mini dental implants are more affordable and we save our patients over other providers.

With a single doctor model, one doctor who places the dental implant and also restores the missing teeth, you save valuable time and money.
