According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, around three million people in the U.S. have dental implants. Plus, around a half million people each year will receive dental implants.
Some of those three million and counting might be sporting mini dental implants instead of traditional implants. While smaller, these implants let you smile big, chew extensively, and do all you'd do with your natural teeth. And at a fraction of the cost of traditional implants.
But are mini dental implants the best solution for you? And what makes them different from traditional dental implants? Understanding the benefits of these smaller implants – and the process involved – can help you make a more educated decision on how to perfect your smile even when you've lost your natural teeth.
