Paresh B. Patel, DDS  

Overdenture mini implants
Course Synopsis
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that 26 percent of Americans aged 65 to 74 years are completely edentulous. With the aging of the population, this percentage will continue to grow. Mini dental implants offer a viable solution for many of these patients, particularly those with extremely atrophic ridges and unstable dentures. Designed for immediate loading using a minimally invasive procedure, mini implants can help build your implant practice and provide a valuable service to your patients.Course Objectives
After completing this course, the dental professional should be able to:


  • Properly select and treatment plan cases for small-diameter implants, including the use of CBCT technology, planning software and guided surgery.
  • Understand the anatomic considerations and ideal implant locations for maxillary and mandibular overdentures.
  • Understand the drilling protocol necessary to achieve high primary stability allowing for immediate loading.
  • Perform prosthetic procedures, from soft relining the patient’s existing denture to fabrication of the new overdenture incorporating the O-ring housings.
  • Have a protocol for postoperative care and long-term maintenance for mini implants.
  • Understand the benefits of the Inclusive® ”case-in-a-box” solution for overdenture stabilization, and how to smoothly integrate mini implants into your private practice.
