Mini implants are faster and more economical than standard implants. With mini-implants, you can have your denture fitted to them as soon as they are placed in your mouth. The titanium cylinders used for mini-implants are smaller, of course, and the process of integration into the bone takes less time. They are particularly useful to anchor lower dentures which have little bone to rest on. While they don’t last as long as the larger implants, they do give you time to make more permanent plans for supporting your dentures. In the meantime, your face is looking younger, your denture is more stable, and you can once again enjoy chewing and eating.
