Especially in the case of elderly people, because of long periods of edentation, the bone structure becomes very narrow which makes it impossible for a traditional dental implant. A modern solution for this clinical situation is a mini-implant supported prosthesis.

Orthodontic dental implants are shorter and thinner than regular implants and are used for a longer period of time. The dental surgeon inserts these implants while the orthodontist uses them for anchoring in order to generate pulling forces.

Implanturile dentare ortodontice sunt mai scurte si mai subtiri decat implanturile obisnuite si se folosesc pentru o perioada scurta de timp. Medicul implantolog insereaza aceste implanturi iar medicul ortodont leaga de aceste implanturi diferite forte pentru a controla miscarile dintilor.
