Mini Dental Implants vs Traditional Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are different from traditional dental implants or single tooth implants as the mini dental implant is much narrower and the mini implant has a screw instead of a post. Mini implants advantages and disadvantages are described below.
The actual design of the implant is slightly different as mini dental implants are a single unit compared to traditional dental implants that normally come in two pieces.
The diameter of a mini implant can vary from 1.8 mm to 2.9 mm. The implant screws may be 10, 13, 15 or 18 mm in length. The strength of a mini implants is determined by the length of the implant screw rather than its diameter.
