Mini implants are less than 3mm in size while dental implants are usually around 3.7mm. Mini implants also usually do not require an abutment, which helps to cut costs, and the procedure to place them is much simpler. Because they are smaller, they also require less bone structure to bond with, and they are easier to place, which reduces your recovery time.
40 Million Americans are without teeth. Only about 3-5% of them have dental implants. Why such a few number of people with dental implants? Typical answer is COST. Traditional implant therapy has left out most Americans. Mini dental implants can offer a solution at a different price point. The procedure to place headgear braces and a mini dental implant is very simple and lots of the surgery and recovery time has been removed. With less surgery comes less cost to the patient.
Mini dental implants are an option for patients looking to replace lost teeth but who don’t want (or can’t receive) conventional restorations. Some people don’t want the invasive surgery required for regular implants, whereas others lack the bone mass in their jaws to hold them.
Mini dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Floss once a day, and brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. While the gums are still sensitive after the dental implant procedure, use an extra soft-bristled toothbrush.
What’s more, dentists with a great deal of experience and expertise when it comes to mini dental implant treatment will likely charge premium rates, and clinics in the south and those located in city centers will usually charge more than those in the north.
What are Mini Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement made of titanium and shaped like a screw. The actual procedure involves 2 steps – The first step is the placement of the implant then, after a healing period which can be 3 – 6 months, comes the second step – the restoration, which is building the crown on top of the implant.

Mini Dental Implants vs Traditional
MDIs are considered to be a faster, more affordable approach to dental implants. They are usually around half the cost of traditional implants. They contain less titanium, and the surgical process required to insert them into the jaw bone is shorter and simpler. Often, the mini dental implant procedure can be performed in one procedure, rather than the two-stage process needed for conventional implants. Due to their smaller diameter, there is less likelihood that a bone graft will be needed in order for there to be enough jaw bone to provide a secure anchor, further reducing the overall cost of getting dental implants. Mini dental implants are much less expensive than traditional dental implants; as a general guide, they usually cost between half and a quarter of the price of normal dental implants.
Cost of Mini Dental Implants and Prices Paid
Typically, patients can expect to pay around £800 per mini implant and between £1000 and £2000 for a normal dental implant. Implants in the upper jaw are usually more expensive than those in the lower jaw. MDIs can range in price from $500 to $1,500 per implant. The cost for an implant supported lower denture with 4-6 MDIs it typically $2,000 to $5,000. This compares very favorably with full sized implants that can cost from $12,000 to $30,000 when used to stabilize a full denture. A 3 or 4 tooth bridge mounted on two implants can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000 (the average being $8,500). A full set of upper and lower implant supported dentures ranges from $25,000 to $95,000 (average of $34,000), depending heavily on the condition of your gums, jaw bone and existing teeth (if any).
Full Denture Implants Cost
The whole jaw Dental Implants are all connected to a titanium frame which is immune to decay and ultra-strong. Using the very latest techniques we build a customized and personalized frame for the jaw, which achieves the ultimate strength required to enable the same day fitting of the final teeth. Connecting the ‘screw in teeth’ to this frame provides an incredibly secure base on which we can fit either porcelain or acrylic teeth to replace the ones you have lost. The stability means that patients leave the clinic with their final full set of replacement teeth just hours after they arrive, no temporary solutions are needed. Implant Dentures with 2, 3 and 4 Implants ranges from $6,400– $12,040 in Mexico.
Front Tooth Implant Cost
Dental implants in front of the mouth, in the smile zone present unique set of challenges to the modern implant dentist. A front tooth implant is a cosmetic dental treatment for people who are missing their front tooth or incisor. Front tooth loss can be due to an accident, due to improper oral care or due to a trauma. Missing a front tooth can ruin a smile and make a person very self-conscious. The current cost to make the temporary is approximately $850.
