What is mini dental implant?

Mini dental implants are a solid one-piece screw with the ball-shaped end, which is less than 3 mm (1.8 mm to 3.3 mm), approximately the shape and size of mini implant is similar to a wooden toothpick. Mini implants are like normal/ standard/ conventional implants made of titanium. They are fully absorbed by human body, the rejection rate is only 2,3%. Mini implants are used to support dentures, replace missing teeth, especially are recommended for patients lack of bone.

Mostly, patients have the implants installed under local anesthetic, or sedation.  Mini dental implants Poland are placed into the bone where no sensory nerve endings are located.
