New Dental Innovations - Mini Implants

Mini Implants

Mini Implants have been used for a few years to provide retention for dentures and for Orthodontic patients. At last, use of non-surgical mini dental implant technology has been expanded.

The FDA in the USA has approved the Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. systems. We are now offering this system as an optional additional choice for our patients.For further information please see

The Mini Implants can be used to provide secure and convenient anchorage for dentures and fixed bridges. No more embarrassment and a better cosmetic appearance. Mini Implants can also be used for replacing a single tooth.

For suitable Patients the advantages are obvious:

  • Mini Implants are placed in one visit
  • Simple, gentle non-surgical procedure
  • No sutures
  • Bone grafting is not usually required unless a tooth has to be extracted first
  • Denture fitted on the same day
  • Having an Implant helps to preserve the existing bone in the area and this helps to safeguard surrounding dentition

Mini Implants are not suitable for everyone but they can often be a quicker and more cost effective alternative and can be placed when less bone is present.

Conventional Implant Treatment remains the Gold Standard but Mini Implants offer choice for some Patients.
