Large unsightly gaps between teeth can have a very negative impact as far as the appearance of a person is concerned. Apart from causing a great deal of discomfort, these gaps can force people to hide their smiles and avoid social interactions. For this reason, it becomes important to seek dental treatment for missing teeth. Dental implant is a popular and one of the most effective treatment options available to people with teeth loss.

There are two main choices available to people considering implants for their missing teeth- mini dental implants and traditional implants. Although, both these treatments are used to fill the gap between teeth and involve insertion of fake dental roots (made of titanium) into the jawbone, there are considerable differences between the two.

The biggest difference lies in the size of traditional and mini implants. The traditional implants are thicker compared to mini dental implants. They are usually between 3mm and 6mm in diameter. Mini implants, on the other hand, are usually less than 3 mm in diameter. A traditional dental implant provides a bigger, stronger base to the artificial teeth. It ensures equal weight distribution and reduces the pressure on the jawbone. This makes traditional implants suitable for replacing larger teeth such as molars. As mini implants are smaller in size, they are ideally used to fill small gaps.

Traditional implants are more time-consuming and invasive in nature. Moreover, they are more costly. As mini dental implants utilize less titanium, they cost less. Also, they are quicker. The crown can be fitted the same day of the implantation procedure. In traditional implants, however, usually some healing time is required after the implantation procedure. Traditional and mini implants are considered equally durable as both of them are made of titanium. However, as conventional dental implants are implanted deeper, they are considered more stable. Nevertheless, mini dental implants work great for front teeth.

If you’re planning to get dental implant in Thailand, it’s important to consult a qualified dentist. A dentist can tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of traditional and mini dental implants and suggest the right type of implants for you.
