Mini Implants

Our Specialties – Mini Implants

Mini dental implants are about half the size in diameter of a regular dental implant. This offers many benefits, and they can also be used in situations where regular implants cannot. If an implant needs to be placed in a narrow space, mini implants are the preferred method because of their smaller size.

A main use for mini implants is to install a full upper or lower denture. A series of mini implants (4-6) are placed along the gum line and they serve as the base of the denture. Rather than placing a single implant for a single tooth, an entire lower or upper set of teeth are directly attached to the gum line.

The small size of mini implants often means that no incision needs to be made to place the implant. They can usually be inserted right through the gum into the bone. This eliminates the need for a recovery period, and the restoration can usually be placed right away or only a short time after.

Mini implants are also less expensive than regular implants. Only your dentist knows if mini implants are right for you, so call for your consultation today.

What our patients say

I used to be a very anxious patient, but Grayhills & Mohip Dental changed that. Both dentists are experienced, professional, and have incredible personalities. The technology is off the charts, and you’re able to watch satellite TV while you get your teeth cleaned. Their laser technology can allow you to get a filling without injections. Highly recommend.

I have always hated and feared going to the dentist, not the people, just having to go. However, after a few minutes here, I was totally put at ease. The office is beautiful, Dr. Mohip was wonderful, and the entire staff was top notch!! NOT a place I want to frequent, but when the time comes, this is where I’ll go! Thank you!
