Advantages and Limitations of Mini Dental Implants

Mini Dental Implants in Costa Rica

Mini dental implants have several advantages. First, mini implants can be loaded immediately. Because of that, you may only need one trip to your dentist’s office. Placing mini implants is a less traumatic procedure. Unlike regular implant that typically requires a surgery, a mini implant requires a less invasive procedure. Consequently, the implant site heals much faster. Second, mini implants are less expensive than traditional implants. The cost of mini implant is generally one third of a regular rootform implant.

Mini implants also have limitations. First, mini implants cannot be placed in the jaw where there is bone loss or not enough vertical bone. If the patient has been without teeth for a long time, there may be bone loss that will preclude our dental surgeons from using mini implants. In other words, there may not be enough bone to support your mini implants.

Second, some patients may not have enough vertical bone because of the proximity of the maxillary sinuses or the mandibular canal. The sinuses may be quite large in some people, and they may extend too far forward to allow placement of mini implants. The mandibular canal contains the nerves which supplies feeling to the lower teeth and lips. Improperly placed mini implants may cause permanent damage to the nerves.

Third, mini implants typically cannot be placed at the extraction site, if your dentist needs to extract your teeth immediately before placing your implant(s).

Finally, the force exerted by daily biting, chewing and teeth grinding may increase failure rate of mini implants and make standard dental implant a better option.

Comprehensive Chromosome Screening with Your IVF Vacation

MedVacation Begins Offering CCS

high_success_rates_IVF_clinicsLeading Medical Tourism Agency specializing in IVF treatments and surrogacy abroad began offering a cutting edge and utmost accurate method for the simultaneous analysis of all 24 types of chromosomes. Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) is highly recommended for those of advanced maternal age (AMA), as well as patients who have had multiple failed IVF cycles or numerous miscarriages.

The recently developed Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) method allows our geneticists to identify the most viable euploid embryos. Although CCS is still experimental and undergoing clinical trials, the few IVF clinics which are running these trials are seeing major improvements in implantation and live birth rates between 75 and 85 percent.
