Mini dental implants can help some folks but they often don't hold up - especially in the upper arch. I recommend getting regular dental implants for anyone who is unhappy wearing regular dentures.

I like the idea of smaller ( http://www.drsandstrom.com/cosmetic-dentistry... ) dental implants. It would make them so much more concealable. Plus, no one here in Phoenix would say anything anymore about my teeth being screwed up.

Thanks for your input. I been meaning to get some dental implants in the Mesa area. I know I have to get some work done, the real question is how much. I think I might look into these mini implants. http://www.dentalimplantstempe.com/Procedures...

Mini ( http://www.hugodentalcare.com ) dental implants? I wouldn't mind those. Pretty sure they'd be a big hit in Hugo too.

I really appreciate this! I've been looking around everywhere trying to find a place that can do dental implants, but I have no idea what makes a good dentist and what doesn't. I found this and www.archdental.ca as insightful places. Thanks for sharing!

I agree. My sister got regular dental implants in Ottawa http://drblackwood.ca/ and I got the mini ones and have had a lot more problems than her. If I do it again I'm just going big.

I personally feel these are just temporary solutions and does not stick for a longer period. So its best to get complete dental implants so that you could stay out of the hospital for the remaining lifetime.

I have considered mini implants for my lower denture and have had some small conversations about it with my dentist. He said that he is not a fan of the minis although we haven't gotten into why this is. At some point I do plan to inquire further because some implants are in my future for my lower denture. The top doesn't present problems so far. The minis are cheeper, and less complicated, which has been my primary interest in them. I trust my dentist, and he is an expert at implants and dentures, so in the end I'll go with what he suggests. He has mentioned to me that it is possible to use 1 or 2 implants as an anchor for lower dentures. It just depends on the situation. We haven't discussed price because I'm only a little over a month into full dentures, and am still in the healing phase. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. It gives me a chance to explore my options, talk with my dentist a lot more, and then make an informed decision.

I recently had 4 mini implants in lower jaw. After the swelling went down and the ridge seems to have shrunk the implants appear to high above the gum. Is this normal and can they be screwed down even further?

It seems like there are so many new things in the medical field that I have never heard of. My dad was telling me how he was going to get dental implants. I wonder if he is getting the mini dental implants or not. http://www.drchrisstevens.com/dental-implants...

Hello, Dentists are appropriate for mini dental implants but if there is requirement of major surgery only than proper orthodontist is required.

What's the difference between a mini implant and any other dental implant? From the name, I'm assuming that the implant itself is smaller. I would love to see the difference between the two in picture form. I've heard a lot of things about dental implants on both sides, so I really think it would help to do some research on your own and decide if it's the right plan of action for you. http://www.coleraindenture.com/dental_implant...
