What is a mini implant?

In fact, the mini-implant was originally designed for orthodontic treatment to act as a temporary anchor, but today it has many applications in dentures as a single tooth or to hold dentures in place. The mini-implant has a diameter of about half the diameter of a normal implant.


Why aren't mini-implants always used instead of dental implants?

Obviously, one of the differences between conventional and mini-implants is the difference in size and length, but their diameter is also different. The exact length and diameter of the mini implant depends on the manufacturer.


The size and dimensions of the mini implant are used in the mouth, depending on where it is placed in the mouth. For example, if you want to replace a large mill tooth, a large (standard) implant must be replaced because the large mill tooth has large dimensions and must be Have high strength.


The diameter of the dental implant that replaces the large mill is 5 mm, but the diameter of the mini-implant is only 2.5 mm. Each of the large mill teeth is supposed to grind a variety of foods well, so if you really want the implant tooth to function like a real large mill tooth, you should use a regular implant, not a mini-implant.


Another important difference between a mini-implant and a conventional implant is the design of a single mini-implant. A typical implant has two distinct parts: the implant-shaped screw base that sinks into the jawbone and the piece that is screwed on and protrudes from the gum (abutment) to mount the prosthesis.


Therefore, in cases where it is necessary to adjust the angle of the implant tooth, a normal implant with a two-piece design should be used in order to select an abutment with a suitable angle. In this way, the final tooth has a completely natural shape and will function properly when chewing food.


Why is a mini-implant sometimes used instead of a regular implant?

Sometimes a mini-implant may be used as a solution for people who do not have enough bone to support a normal implant. This method is usually used if the tooth is in the mandible because the maxillary bone is less dense.


Also, people who have dentures and want their teeth fixed in place use a mini-implant to hold it in place. In orthodontic treatment, mini implants are used because they are easy to insert and remove.


How much does a mini implant cost compared to a conventional implant?

Mini-implants take less material and are therefore cheaper than conventional implants. However, its results are not as successful in the long run as conventional implants because it is narrower, so there are limitations to its use, and if these limitations are not met, treatment may fail.
