OCO Biomedical Mini Dental Implant for a Molar Crown ~ 1/2 the Cost & 1/2 the pain

1/2 the time, 1/2 the cost, 1/2 to no surgery needed and less pain?  This is what my patient asked me. She said, 'Are you sure about this?'

She was reading from a poster in our office touting the benefits of mini dental implants.  I told her in most cases YES.  Well she told me….I don't really care about most cases I care about mine!

With that in mind we went to work.  Premini Yes I recognize the open margin on the molar behind the missing tooth.  The patient is aware and will address that tooth as time and $$ allow. 


X-ray of the missing lower tooth molar.  I had extracted a failing root canal tooth about 4 months ago and packed the extraction socket with some Foundation bone preservation material.  The area looked well healed and ready for some 'painless' mini dental implants.

I gave her 1/2 a carpule (shot) of dental anesthetic and placed 2 2.2 x 10mm OCO Biomedical Micro Implants.  Less numbing than I give for a lower tooth filling.

Although this case shows the use of a OCO Biomedical mini dental implant; it could have been done with any reputable mini (IMTEC MDI, Intra Lock MDL, HiOssen etc…)


OK…its been a few weeks and the patient is ready to get her crown. Here are the clinical photos of the mini dental implant crown over the OCO mini implants.
