I get asked this question a lot from both dentists and patients. I think the answer is most likely yes. Lots of variables contribute to the successful outcome of any implant and the crown or bridge that goes over the top of it. Tissue type, bone level and sometimes how much time and funds the patient has to invest.
But for the most part I think patients, if given all the information, can be happy with the aesthetic outcome with mini dental implants and the crown or bridge they support.
My next patient was in for her normal 6 month cleaning appointment. She stopped me to tell me how happy she was with her fixed crowns on her mini dental implants in her upper jaw.
These crowns and mini dental implants have been in for 1 year now. This case used Intra Lock mini implants. But as I state in most of my posts any well constructed mini dental implant such as the OCO Biomedical mini or micro, IMTEC MDI, or HiOssen mini are appropriate. Even as a dentist I think I would have a hard time figuring out which ones are regular crowns on teeth and the mini dental implant crowns.
This patient is able to keep her mini dental implant Crowns by First Impressions Dental Lab clean with a normal toothbrush, floss, and/or a water pick. The two crowns are connected together and are supported by 3 mini dental implants. The hygienist and patient both can floss between all the mini implants.
