Even though mini dental implants are smaller than conventional implants, they offer a number of advantages. Mini dental implants cost about one third as much as standard dental implants, but they still provide outstanding stability and chewing power.
The recovery time is much shorter with mini dental implants — they can even be used for same-day placement, so there’s no waiting for your final restoration. Dr. Brace can also use mini dental implants to secure your existing dentures, dramatically enhancing their performance.
Because they’re so much smaller, mini dental implants don’t require nearly as much bone matter. For this reason, mini dental implants are an option for many patients who wouldn’t be able to use standard dental implants. This makes mini dental implants a particularly attractive solution for many older patients who don’t have enough bone mass to support a full-sized implant.
Dental implants require a much smaller space in order to bond with your jawbone. Dr. Brace only has to make a small incision during mini implant surgery — resulting in a much faster recovery time for you.
You get so many advantages with mini dental implants:
Do you like the way your dentures look, but you don’t like the way they feel or the way they move around when you’re talking or eating? Dr. Brace can anchor your dentures using mini dental implants, providing superior comfort, performance, and stability.
These implant-secured dentures are called overdentures, and they could be the right solution for your smile. In most cases, we can transform your existing dentures into overdentures in just one office visit.
The best way to find out more about mini dental implants is to meet with Dr. Brace for your $1 consultation. You’ll be given a full dental exam so Dr. Brace can recommend the restoration that’s right for you.

Mini dental implants have the same structure as regular implants, but they’re smaller. Unlike conventional implants, they’re comprised of a one-piece screw that’s less than 3mm in diameter and includes a ball-shaped end that protrudes from the jawbone.
Many patients with missing teeth don’t have enough bone for traditional implants, but they have enough for mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are often a better choice to replace small teeth or fit into narrow openings, as well as a better fit for people with small jaws.
Unlike traditional dental implants, mini dental implants aren’t designed to be permanent. Since they are smaller, there’s only so much force they can withstand. With proper dental hygiene and care, you can expect to enjoy your mini dental implants for up to 10 years.
