Mini Dental Implants

Posted last December 11, 2017, 5:22 am in Health report article

Dr. Navid Rahmani of Dental Implants Center in NYC is a leading mini dental implant specialist in NYC and one of few implant dentists in NY region to offer newest and most advanced dental implant techniques and procedures for your replacement or new teeth. 

Mini Dental Implants vs Traditional Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are different from traditional dental implants or single tooth implants as the 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.

Who Can Have Mini Dental Implants?

After natural teeth are removed, bone loss is a common problem as the jawbone quickly loses density and mass. It is also possible for the jawbone to deteriorate due to osteoporosis or simply as a natural part of ageing.

Placement of mini dental implants in NYC may also be a good solution for replacing incisors and where there is simply insufficient room to place a traditional sized dental implant.

Mini  implants can be particularly useful for securing dentures. There is no evidence to suggest the success of this dental implant treatment is affected by age or gender.

What Is the Procedure for Mini Dental Implants?


You will need a full consultation with Dr. Navid Rahmani to determine your suitability and to discuss this procedure in greater detail. If you decide to proceed, you will need a Cone Beam CT scan and digital dental x-rays.

Planning Mini Implants

Mini dental implants in NYC are planned in exactly the same way as traditional dental implants, using computer guided surgery to place them. Dr. Rahmani will create a surgical stent beforehand using the computerized information provided by your cone beam CT scan showing exactly where the implants will be placed.
