Bone Climbing Up The Mini Dental Implant


The lower right first molar was extracted and after a short healing period, 2 minis were placed.
A PFM was placed and the patient happily used it for 2 years but came back then to complain of a toothache which he assumed must be due to the implant we placed for him.

An xray showed that the toothache was due to the second molar distal caries. The incidental finding was a very healthy and strong looking cortical bone around the minis. Amazingly also, bone has climbed at least 2 thread widths up the mini dental implant ! Is this, should this be the new standard of care in implant dentistry ?

Should we then consider using minis more often ? Are minis  advantageous over conventionals in some areas ? These are questions that need to be asked objectively and scientifically without prior assumptions.

I am very interested in information about the mini dental implants. I need to know the cost for a lower denture, I mean the ave. cost. I have no dental insurance so this will be out of the pocket price.
