Restore Your Teeth with Mini Dental Implants Near Wilmington, NC

Mini dental implants are titanium screws that are installed in the jaw. These serve as a stable mount for attachable dental crowns or dentures that can closely replicate both the function and appearance of natural teeth.

How Mini Implants Differ from Traditional Dental Implants?

As the name implies, mini implants are smaller than most other forms of dental implants. They are about half the size in diameter and do not go as deeply into the jaw.

Mini dental implants are a good alternative for patients who may lack the jaw bone density to support other implants. Many simply prefer the price and less invasive nature of mini implants.
