Conventional Implants vs. Mini Dental Implants

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell explains the differences between conventional and mini dental implants, highlighting their uses for stabilizing dentures and replacing single teeth.

Conventional and mini dental implants serve different purposes and have distinct characteristics. Mini dental implants are versatile and can be used for stabilizing dentures or partial dentures. They are particularly useful in areas where conventional implants might not be suitable due to space or bone limitations. On the other hand, conventional dental implants are typically used for replacing single teeth, provided there is sufficient bone present. These implants are generally more expensive but are ideal for supporting individual teeth.
Mini dental implants, while smaller, can also support individual teeth and are less expensive, making them a viable option for stabilizing dentures or partials. If you are considering dental implants and want to explore which type would be best for your needs, we recommend scheduling a free consultation to assess your suitability for either option.
