What’s the Difference Between a Traditional Implant and a Mini Dental Implant?
In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a dedicated Melbourne implant dentist, explains the distinguishing factors that separate conventional implant from miniature dental implants.
A lot of people ask us, what’s the difference between a traditional conventional implant and a mini dental implant? Well, really, it’s the size. If you look right in here, this is a model of a lower jawbone. And you’ll see over here, this is the size of a mini dental implant that’s less than 3 mm in diameter. Conventional implants can be upwards of 5 to 7 mm in diameter.
When a conventional implant is placed, it has to sit for six months, sometimes longer, just to integrate into the bone. If it has to be bone grafted, it’ll have to sit six to eight months before you even place the implant. With a mini dental implant, if the bone is available, we can place the implant that day, take an impression, and have your crown ready in two to three weeks. So if you have missing teeth or all of your teeth are missing and you’re interested in mini implants, give the office a call and come in for a free consultation so we can give you the smile that you’ve always wanted.
