    Mini Dental Implants


    I'm a newbie here-

    Has anyone gotten the mini dental implants? I am getting these in about two weeks and will have bottom dentures. Like to hear any feedback.

    Re: Mini Dental Implants

    Mini dental implants were developed as a means to temporarily secure dentures while the final implants were healing. Traditional implants are much larger and usually are burried in the bone for 4 months prior to placing them in function. Mini-implants were designed much smaller and were loaded immediately. The idea was that the immediate load would not last for a long time, but usually long enough for the final implants to heal. With the mini-implants, the patient could benefit from more secure dentures immediately. As time went on, it was discovered that a good many of these mini-implants were doing very well at the end of the final implant nhealing period. Some people began using mini-implants as a final solution for selected cases.

    Mini-implants can be a good solution in the right person as they are usually much cheaper than the traditional implants. Placement is quite simple and does not require stitches.
