Nuevas tendencias en los implantes dentales

los implantes dentalesUn tema de tendencia en este momento parece ser la decisión de optar por “implantes de mini-dental” en lugar de otros más tradicionales. A continuación vamos a echar un vistazo dentro de la tendencia, y diseñar algunas de las ventajas e inconvenientes de manera que se puede obtener una mejor comprensión de esta tendencia emocionante en la odontología.


  • Mini dental implants are usually less expensive than traditional ones, sometimes costing only 1/3 that of regular implants. They take less time to place and are smaller and less invasive, and can be used in small spaces or for those with inadequate bone mass.
  • With mini dentures, smaller dentures can be used, leading to a better tasting experience for the palate than a traditional denture would provide.
  • Mini implants can be placed with minimal recovery time, and usually require very little to no bone grafting.


Because this is still a fairly new procedure, there are a few downsides. For one, there aren’t enough studies out there on the longevity of these implants, so we don’t know how they hold up over time. A study published in the International Journal of Implant Dentistry in 2016 revealed that traditional implante dental placement has a proven survival rate of 95% o mayor. The analysis collected data from over 10,000 implants from 3,095 patients, across three separate private practices over the course of 20 año. For mini dental implants, there isn’t yet enough data to conclude a proper survival rate.

Another concern is that because this is such a new trend there is not as much information or regulation out there. Some practices with claims such as “Dentures-in-a-day” might not do a proper consultation, skipping important steps such as a 3D scan to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

While it may be some time before this method is perfected and adopted, it is also exciting to see the advancements changing people’s lives in the dental industry every day. Check in with Shimane Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to find out what tooth replacement options may be right for you!
