Many patients ask about “mini-implants”. These were initially designed for temporary use only and have been adapted by dentists with limited surgical training for a myriad of uses. My opinion is that “mini-implants “are like the Three Pigs: They are the house of straw. As long as there is no wind (or Big Bad Wolf) blowing) they are fine. Unfortunately, in the mouth, there is huffing and puffing – chewing food, talking, etc and you need a house of brick. This brick is a dental implant cylinder. I have used these for over 24 years with a 99% success rate. Call 317-898-2555 and ask how dental implants can improve your mouth and quality of life.
