Mini dental implants are titanium implants of diameter less than 3mm. Conventional or standard implants have diameter of more than 3mm. They usually range from 3mm up to 5mm and have a greater flexibility in the type of attachment that can fitted on top of the implant. Due to their small diameter there is less flexibility of what type of attachment can be connected onto this. Generally most of the mini dental implants are used for denture stabilisation purposes, as an interim or temporary stage in dental implant therapy.
