Multi-clinic evaluation using mini-dental implants for long-term denture stabilization: a preliminary biometric evaluation.
These analyses establish that the MDI mini-implant system can be implemented for long-term prosthesis stabilization and deliver a consistent level of implant success. Expand
Measuring Mobility of 2 Dental Implant Fixtures of Different Configurations: An In Vitro Study
According to the experimental results of this study, the Brånemark implant was more stable than the mini-dental implant at the end of 2 minutes, and the discrepancies were observed mostly at the cervical region of the 2 implants. Expand
Immediate Loading With Mini Dental Implants in the Fully Edentulous Mandible
This article shows the success of 27 mini dental implants that were placed for 11 mandibular fully edentulous patients, providing stable and esthetic temporary prostheses immediately after implant placement and bone grafts. Expand
Mini-dental implant insertion with the auto-advance technique for ongoing applications.
This is the first human histological report on the auto-advance technique with immediate loading of mini-dental implants, demonstrating feasibility in ongoing applications. Expand
Use of mini implants for replacement and immediate loading of 2 single-tooth restorations: a clinical case report.
This article reports on the surgical treatment and immediate restoration of a patient who received mini implants that were 2.4 mm in diameter, a more conservative form of tooth replacement than conventional fixed partial dentures. Expand
Biomechanical factors affecting the bone-dental implant interface.

  • Clinical materials
  • 1992
Recent research suggests that the search for a more detailed hypothesis regarding the relationship between interface mechanics and biology should take account of basic bone physiology, e.g. wound healing after implantation plus basic processes of bone modeling and remodeling. Expand
The 'mini'-implant has arrived.
The introduction, approval and continuing observation of success of smaller-diameter mini-implants have stimulated use of implants in situations in which standard-sized implants could not have been used without grafting, and more patients have been served successfully at reduced cost with minimized pain and trauma.

Mini dental implants for long-term fixed and removable prosthetics: a retrospective analysis of 2514 implants placed over a five-year period.
Treatment guidelines are devised for the use of MDIs in long-term fixed and removable prostheses based on results of a 5-year study on endosseous implants of increasingly smaller diameters in dentistry. Expand
Mini-Implants to Reconstruct Missing Teeth in Severe Ridge Deficiency and Small Interdental Space: A 5-Year Case Series
Using narrow-diameter mini-implants allows the clinician to overcome both the lack of adequate bone width and interdental space without the need for additional grafting procedures or orthodontic tooth movement. Expand
Flapless implant surgery: a 10-year clinical retrospective analysis.
Flapless implant surgery is a predictable procedure if patient selection and surgical technique are appropriate, since the procedure is less time consuming, bleeding is minimal, implant placement is expedited, and there is no need to place and remove sutures. Expand
