Making a choice between mini dental implants and standard dental implants

A lot of people are unable to decide whether they should go for mini dental implants or conventional implants to replace their one or more missing teeth. If you want to make the right decision, learn about the similarities, as well as differences between these two.

Dental implants in general are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They are also used for holding removable dentures in place so that they do not fall or slip or move out of their position. Teeth implants are normally made out of titanium because it is highly compatible with the body and doesn’t trigger any immune response in the body. Whether standard or mini all dental implants offer a permanent and reliable solution to replace .... They are comfortable to wear, make chewing and speaking easier, and look and function like natural teeth only.

Standard dental implants are made out of 2 pieces with a diameter more than 3 mm. An external screw is inserted into the bone and an internal thread is also used so that various components like teeth and dentures can be attached to the implant. Mini dental implants on the other hand are just one-piece screw. They are less than 3 mm in diameter and feature a special ball-shaped end that comes out of the jaw bone. Mini implants are effective in providing support to the dentures. The denture has a rubber O ring that is made to fit around the mini dental implant ball.

Mini dental implants are a solid one-piece screw, less than 3 mm in diameter, with a specialized ball-shaped end that sticks out of the jaw bone. They are useful for providing support to dentures. In this way, the denture or fabricated tooth has a rubber O ring that fits around the mini implant ball.

Mini dental implants are about half the diameter of the conventional dental implants. Therefore it takes two mini implants to provide the support provided by a single normal implant. Conventional dental implants provide a long term solution to replace missing teeth when compared to mini dental implants. This is due to the fact that standard dental implants allow better weight distribution and put less stress on the jawbone. Further, conventional dental implants have greater surface area which enables better chewing force and long-term stability.

Though conventional implants are considered to be better than the mini dental implants, there are situations in which one has no option but to go for mini dental implants. For instance, people who poor general health and suffer from bone degeneration, mini teeth implant is the only option. Mini dental implant surgery is quick since the implant is not fully submerged in the jawbone. In case the implant failure occurs, the small size of the mini dental implant prevents the need for grafting. Mini implants are less expensive compared to standard implants and are solid although they do not contain a screw.

Ask your dentist which would be better for you-mini dental implants or standard dental implants. He would assess your situation and would help you choose the best option to let you smile and talk confidently once again.
