Mini dental implants (MDI) are ultra-small diameter (l.8 millimeter width), biocompatible titanium alloy implant screws, conceived and designed over 20 years ago by a board-certified Manhattan dentist, Victor I. Sendax, DDS. Dr. R.A. Bulard added a single one piece «SQ»O-ball«SQ» design to Dr. Sandax`s concept. These implants can be used in atrophic ridges, flabby ridges or in other cases where there is denture instability or lack of retention due to poor availability of residual bone. In this article, we shall discuss a case report of a 55 year old female patient with a severely atrophic mandibular ridge that was managed by the Mini Dental Implant system with an overdenture.
