CE 1: Placement of Mini Dental Implants and Fabrication of an Implant-Retained Mandibular Overdenture in a Medically Complex Patient Benjamin D. Oppenheimer, DDS; and Benjamin E. Hauer, DDS
This article discusses the use of a mini-implant–retained mandibular overdenture (mIRMOD) as an alternative to the use of a traditional IRMOD. This approach may be highly useful when faced with complicating factors such as poor bone morphology and/or the need for a minimally invasive surgical modality.
