Can Dental Implants Work For You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

Achieve Outstanding Support for Your Dentures with Mini Dental Implants

At Astoria Dental Group, we are committed to providing our patients with strong, healthy smiles that they can feel confident sharing. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically embedded in the jaw bone to replace lost tooth roots and provide a secure foundation for restorations. We offer several types of implants, including mini dental implants, at our Queens practice. These implants usually do not require a preparatory bone graft, and can be restored immediately following placement. You can find out if mini implants are right for you during an examination and evaluation with our highly trained implant dentist, Dr. Clifford Degel. Contact our office today to schedule your initial consultation.

Mini implants are one of the latest techniques in dentistry. Mini implants are used when there is limited bone in which to place an implant. In this clip you learn all about the many benefits of mini implants and how long the procedure takes to complete. The answer might surprise you!

What are Mini Dental Implants?

Similar to traditional dental implants, mini dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone to replace lost tooth roots. Osseointegration is a process in which the implant becomes fused with the surrounding bone tissue, providing an extremely durable and stable support system for crowns and dentures. This process can take three to six months. However, because they have a smaller diameter than traditional implants, mini implants can support restorations before osseointegration is complete.

Applications and Benefits

Mini dental implants offer several unique benefits, including:


Mini implants can often support dentures the same day they are placed. Patients can leave our office with fully restored function and a natural-looking smile in as little as one appointment.

Compatibility with jaws that have experienced some atrophy

Patients who have waited to replace missing teeth usually require a bone graft before they can receive traditional dental implants. Thanks to their smaller diameter, mini implants require less bone mass for support, and may not require a bone graft.

Minimized risk of complications

The minimally invasive technique used to place mini implants naturally reduces risks as well as recovery time.

Additionally, mini implants offer many of the same benefits that have earned traditional dental implants recognition as a superior restorative solution. Mini implant-supported dentures will not slip out of place, and do not require messy adhesives. With proper care, mini dental implants can provide a lifetime of support for your dental prosthetic. Most importantly, mini implants and traditional implants alike preserve the health of the jaw bone and can halt further atrophy.
