Are there mini dental implants that differ in widths and lengths? ...Visitor from Wilmington
Most dentists agree that Imtec Mini Dental Implants (MDI) that is now owned by 3M has "pioneer status" in the use of Small Diameter Implats.
Many manufacturers have produced a similar product with different features, all designed to improve the placement, function and endurance of mini implants.
Diameter of "mini implant style" seems to be the most popular element to "re-design" since, in general terms, implant diameter influences the degree to which the implant osseointegrates with surrounding bone.
More and more dentists will have access to different brands and sizes of implants to better serve their patients.
