Mini Dental Implants

What are Mini Dental Implants?

  • If you need to more securely anchor your existing partial or full dentures, mini implants are a safe, permanent and comfortable solution.
  • Mini implants act as artificial roots to hold your dentures
  • Using a titanium screw placed below the gum and fused to the jawbone, mini implants provide a secure base for your dentures to be fastened.
  • Properly cared for, mini implants can last a lifetime

What to Expect

  1. A review of pertinent information, an interview, and an exam with Dr. Bill Recktenwald
  2. Discussion of cost and choices of payment options
  3. Impression for model to make the guide (It takes about 2 hours to make)
  4. A three dimensional scan is taken, which is used to design where the implants are to be placed
  5. A small amount of local anesthesia is applied to "numb" the area.
  6. The implants are placed using the guide to achieve a predictable result. This process is usually finished in less than half an hour, and involves no stitches, minimal bleeding, and little discomfort.
  7. The housing is used to "snap" the denture to the implants immediately. This usually takes less than an hour
  8. Instructions are given and follow-up visits for adjustments are scheduled

Here are some reasons why you might want to choose us to secure your dentures


  • We use 3 dimensional imaging, while almost all other offices are limited to 2 dimensional imaging
  • The latest computer software allows us to design the implant placement, optimizing predictable results.
  • A surgical guide transfers a computer design to the patient


  • Dr. Bill has taken extensive training in both traditional and mini implants. He is also an active member of The International Academy of Mini Implants

Payment Options and Affordability

  • Four mini implants can be placed to secure an existing lower denture for as little as $8.50 a day for a one year payment option.

A Relaxed, Friendly and Non-Judgemental Atmosphere

  • We believe that making patients as comfortable as possible at Christiana Dental Center, is an essential part of good dentistry.

Our Happy Patients

"The staff here is fantastic- everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. R himself is straightforward, honest, and does very clean work. I had a large cavity close to my gum line on a premolar, the filling is so clean and well matched, I cannot tell where my tooth ends and the filling begins. To that point, my insurance here was a breeze! Ramona sat with me, detailed all the fillings I needed, and what would and would not be covered so I was well prepared."

"Oh My Stars! This office is the BEST!! I was at work in excruciating pain and it was 5:45 pm on a Friday. I called the dentist that did my X-rays and they wouldn't talk to me because they were closed (yet the hours clearly stated 8-5pm). So I got online and searched for a dentist with weekend hours near me. I found Christiana Dental Center and was able to make an appointment for Monday morning and let me tell you, today is Tuesday and after two days with this office as a new patient, I have nothing but great things to say about the office, staff, service, and price! THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME THIS YEAR!!!!!! What would have taken me weeks or even months to accomplish, was done in just TWO DAYS, and was WAY CHEAPER than the other dentist that couldn't get me in the office sooner. I have already made my next appointment, not sure if it's to get my teeth together or just to see the staff, either way I can't wait!"
