I am interested in using mini implants for my upper plate. I already have the larger size on my lower jaw and love them. ...Visitor from Tucson
Mini implants were originally designed to "not" be used in the upper jaw because of a higher rate of bone porosity.
Many, newer mini implant variations have occurred since then, but many dentists still recommend standard implants with locator devices for an upper denture.
Standard size implants do a superb job of stimulating bone tissue for maintaining overall health characteristics. Mini implants, due primarily to their size.... do not have the same capacity.
