Dental Implants
 

Mini dental implants are becoming more common in use when the patient can’t afford the standard size dental implants or have medical complications such that surgery might compromise the patient medically.   They are much narrower than standard implants and much more susceptible to fracture and loss of bond to the bone.  However, they are generally less expensive (so more are often required).   Most applications are under dentures because the stress will be reduced (so there is somewhat less risk of fracture or de-bonding from the bone…but still higher than standard implants) compared to use as a crown or bridge support.
