How long will mini dental implants last
Q. How long will minimplants last when used to hold lower dentures in place?
It is hard to say because there are many factors which have to be taken into account.
ie. bite forces, is there opposing teeth or dentures, volume of bone,etc
I do not tend to use minimplants often, because there is not a great deal of long term studies. Patients can have good retention for a lower denture by having 2 or 3 conventional implants, if budget is an issue.
