New approach towards mini dental implants and small-diameter implants: an option for long-term prostheses
Background. Mini dental implants (MDI) and small diameter implants (SDI) have been extensively used as temporary or orthodontic anchorage; however there have been studies that proved their availability as a mean for long term prosthodontics. Our aim was to review the indications, advantages of MDI and SDI, and their long-term survival.
Key words: mini dental implants, small diameter implants, survival.
