Hi,...I'm about to have mini-implants. After much research, I feel that they are the way to go. Mine will be the Imtec Sendax mini-implants. They are FDA approved. I found out about them by doing a Google search and then emailing Imtec. They sent me a packet of info. Why don't you try doing the same? Once I have mine, I will post the results. One thing I like about them is that they are much less expensive than other implant systems. Wish me luck!

Re: mini dental implants???

Is that $3,200 per post, or does it cover for all? The reason I am asking is that I was just quoted a price of $5,800 for a lower partial with core buildup and 3 crowns. This does not include root canals. I wondered why my dentist didn't mention mini-implants to me especially since it is questionable whether or not the 3 crowns are possible on my already weakened teeth.
