Over 96% Success rate when placed with Dr Andrew Taylor

Dr Andrew Taylor with his patient Grace, who had mini implants placed and a denture fitted on the same day.

See how Grace found the treatment:

Mini Implants can be installed in one visit with a minimally invasive procedure, simpler than a simple tooth extraction, and patients can use their teeth the same day.

Mini implants are smaller versions of regular implants and useful in areas of the mouth with limited bone for regular implants or for someone unable to tolerate bone grafting. We provide 4 mini implants in the lower and 6 in the upper to retain a horseshoe shaped denture (without a palate) The implants are placed simply into the bone with a ball attachment on the top which clips into a stud on the underside of the denture to provide a fixed solution to retain your denture.

Advantages of Mini Implants

Mini-implants have all the advantages of regular implants. However, because mini implants are so narrow, the procedure for placing them is much less invasive than with larger implants.

This means faster healing time and less discomfort, with minimal damage to the soft tissue around the implants, and usually no need for stitches.

The artificial teeth on mini implants can often be fitted immediately – with regular implants, there’s typically a waiting period of several months.

Another advantage of mini implants is a financial one: mini implants tend to be less expensive than regular implants, and can avoid the extra expense of a bone graft.

Downside of Mini Implants

While mini implants often provide a solution when there are problems with jaw bone, one type of bone issue could rule them out – inadequate vertical bone, often caused by gum disease

And you might not be a good candidate for mini dental implants if you habitually grind your teeth, which can wear down the implants.

To make a truly informed decision on whether you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants, and which type would be most beneficial, you need to speak to and experienced dental surgeon experienced in Implants

Mini dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Floss once a day, and brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.

“Utmost respect and thanks to Dr A Taylor and colleagues at Wadebridge Dental. They transformed my smile, my confidence and eating now feels normal. During procedures I was reassured when nervous and was fully informed prior to any interactions. I was extremely embarrassed by my teeth, now I am so glad I had implants done”
