This a part 2 of the missing lateral tooth post. After orthodontics some patients have a space from a missing tooth. My patient Zack was one of those. His choices were:
Walk around with a plastic retainer with a denture tooth in it. He would have to remove this retainer every time he wanted to eat or walk around with a gap between his front teeth.

So in one 30 minute appointment Zack had a mini dental implant placed. A standard crown impression was taken and in 1 week First Impressions Dental Lab returned his final porcelain crown.

Mini dental implants are easy to place, easy to restore, cost effective and a painless way to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth.
I think all dentists should get educated in placing mini implants.
There a several good courses that can provide this kind of training:
Mini Dental Implant Education CE Seminar with hands on training.
