Mini double implants are just a version of dental implants. It's a smaller diameter implant, similar in many, many ways, to implants that have been around for 35 years, but it offers an alternative treatment, because often times the procedures can be done at a lower cost for people that don't want to get into more involved care with a regular diameter implant, or sometimes in situations where we don't have enough bone to place a larger diameter standard implant, and people don't want to go through the extra procedures of bone grafting and extra surgery that may be involved in order to accomplish that. Mini implants can be a nice alternative.

The Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
If you have you been told you don’t have a thick or strong enough jaw for dental implants, mini dental implants may be right for you! On top of being a great option for those that are not suitable candidates for dental implants, mini dental implants offer the same advantages of their standard-sized counterparts. Mini dental implants can:
- Last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and care
- Provide a stronger bite power than other tooth replacement options
- Look, feel, and function like your natural teeth
- Be restored with a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental crowns, dental bridges, and dental implant dentures
- Prevent deterioration of your jawbone and facial tissue, which helps you maintain a youthful look
Our Mini Dental Implant Process
If you are interested in getting mini dental implants, we will conduct a thorough assessment of your mouth and jawbones using advanced dental technology in our Fort Myers and Naples, FL offices, including:
- Digital X-rays
- Intraoral cameras and scanners
- 3D cone beam CT scanners
This information will also help us design your tooth restorations with precision.
To perform your procedure, we will numb the area for your comfort, then carefully place your mini dental implants beneath your gums. After a brief healing period, we will attach your replacement teeth to complete your improved smile!
If you are on edge, we can relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options.
