Less Expensive  
In many cases, mini implants cost around half the cost of 
traditional or conventional implants.   
Less Invasive
Because the mini implant requires only a small pilot hole to be placed, it is less traumatic to the bone and soft tissue; as compared to a conventional implant that usually involves extensive surgery and bone grafts.

Less Healing Time
Because placing the smaller diameter mini implant does not cause as much trauma to the bone and soft tissue in the mouth, your healing time is reduced from months to days.

Less Discomfort
Less trauma to the gums, bone and underlying tissue means less discomfort.  Many patients need only over-the-counter pain 
medication for a day or so after the procedure.

Less Time
In many cases, the mini implant can be loaded immediately after placement.  This means that most procedures, including 
anchoring dentures can be done in one visit.

Less Bone Loss
A mini dental implant preserves the bone so that you can preserve 
the shape of your face.

Less Bone Required
Mini implants require less bone so you're less likely to need 
additional costly bone grafts.
