Mini Dental Implants

Tootth implants at Southampton Aesthetic Dentistry

While all dental implants require care during insertion to avoid encroaching on vulnerable nerves, sinuses or bony structures, the ultra small width of the mini implants offers a comfortable margin of safety. Mini dental implants are about half the size of traditional implants, which means that fewer bone structures are needed to secure the dental prosthesis.

A traditional dental implant is about the same size as a tooth. But when there’s not enough bone or space to support a full implant, most dentists tell their patients to consider another option. But Dr. David Agia in Southampton, Pennsylvania offers a smaller implant design known as the “mini,” which is ideal for situations that involve:

  • Limited space;
  • Bone loss;
  • Denture stabilization;
  • Replacing smaller teeth;
  • Same day implants.

What are Mini Implants?

Mini dental implants in Southampton, PA resemble conventional implants in their shape and materials but are less than half their size. Although they’re not able to support as much weight as a traditional implant, the miniature version is still predictable and effective. In most cases, Dr. Dr. David Agiacan place a mini implant in just one day.

Denture Stabilization

One of the common reasons we use mini implants is to secure a removable overdenture. In these situations, Dr. David Agia places about 2-4 implants in your mouth and retrofits your denture with small attachments. Your prosthesis is still removable, but it snaps into place so that it won’t rock or shift throughout the day.

A Simple, Straightforward Procedure

Getting mini implants is a fairly routine process. Only a small amount of local anesthetic is needed to numb the area where it’s being installed. The procedure usually takes less than a half hour from start to finish.

Get a Second Opinion

If you’ve been told that implants aren’t an option because of your teeth shifting or bone shrinking (resorbing,) then mini implants may be a great alternative. Our Southampton office offers comprehensive implants and mini designs to fit the diverse needs of our patients.
