Have you heard this before? Or worse, have you placed some mini-implants that have failed? If so, did you feel deceived that mini-implants did not perform the way you expected or were told?The worst part is... you are totally right... unless they are placed correctly...
Then it can really change the life of your patients who really need a more affordable solution!
Why is the dental field so resistant to the mini-implant technique?
Do you think mini-implants have no place in dentistry?
Do you think only standard implants should be used to stabilize dentures or partials?
Did you ever receive training on mini-implants but were not impressed so did not feel ready to offer this option to your patients?
Would you ever consider replacing a single tooth with a mini-implant?
What if you were to see actual proof of the long-term success of mini-implants in many clinical situations and be shown the way to make this procedure easy and successful?
Why can some dentists achieve excellent results and increase their production by over $500,000 just by stabilizing dentures with mini-implants while satisfying hundreds of patients on a long-term basis with minimum rejections?
Why do some dentists stop placing mini-implants before their fifth case because it is not working and they feel deceived?
What do successful dentists know that the others don't?
Are mini-implants just a fluke, or is it a serious and valid alternative?
All answers are in the technique, method and type of implant used. Every detail is important, not only for the placement of the mini-implant, but the prosthesis as well. Many factors affect the final result and long-term prognosis. CMI's thorough training courses will cover all of these details.
I am still wondering today why the dental field is so resistant to this technique which has proven it's efficiency over the years. I have been placing mini-implants for over ten years. I have more than 400 long-term successful cases which literally saved the lives of my patients as they could not afford standard implants. These patients would have suffered worsening health due to not being able to eat properly and continuing to ingest more and more toxic dental adhesive. I would understand if it was still 1999, when there were no long-term results on mini-implants. However, we are now in 2012 and have more than enough proof to show the serious and concrete benefits of this technique.
The worst part of the myth about mini-implants is that dentists have a negative idea of the technique without ever trying it, even though they could help and satisfy more patients. I believe some dentists think that mini-implants are a threat to standard implants when they should actually be seen as an option to their range of services to help more patients. I also think that every dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon who place standard implants should learn the technique to be able to offer it when the case is suitable for it and for medical or monetary reasons instead of rejecting the technique without even trying it.
It is obvious that mini-implants, especially when we talk about stabilizing dentures, have taken and will continue to take a large part of the market from the standard implants. This is why the dental field is so resistant to it! However, if we consider the amount of patients that could be helped with this technique, the final result should be very satisfactory for a practitioner offering both techniques. Mini-implants may require a little bit more work for the same amount of money, but at the end, many more patients will be helped with an alternative that was not available to them before. It is time to bring dentistry back to its original goal of helping patients instead of just thinking about our wallet!
Personally, I still place standard implants in my practice, and this is always the first option I offer to my patients. However, if the patient cannot afford a complete full mouth rehabilitation with standard implants, at least, the patient can improve its situation instead of feeling helpless, with no solution....
The more the word is spread about mini-implants, the more dentists will offer the technique. The question should be: “ Will you be one of those offering this solution and helping more patients who wear prosthesis who cannot afford the standard implants? Or: “ Will you be the dentist who says that the technique doesn't work without even trying it and wait patiently for the big money making case? “ Will Placing Mini-implants really help your patients who cannot afford standard implants?
The real question is: “ Can I leave these patients who need a more affordable solution without any viable solution?
Are you going to pass on the chance to learn this amazing technique and let other dentists take the lead?
In fact, the mini-implant technique is not only a second alternative for the patients who cannot afford standard implants but sometimes, it is the best solution, especially when the patient only wants to stabilize a full denture.
