Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD
Small-diameter implants are becoming widely acceptable. What are the best ways to restore them? Mini implants are being used for retention and support of complete dentures, removable partial dentures, augmentation of fixed prostheses, and sole support of fixed prostheses and single-tooth replacements. There are several technologies to connect the implants to prostheses. This video shows attachments and abutments ranging from the best soft-denture liners, to manufacturer abutments and attachments, to custom-cast abutments. Minis are serving well, but the method of restoration is directly related to success! Decide on the best abutments and attachments for mini implants.
