Pain, financial limitations, and time involved in procedure; these are top three reasons most patients do not move forward with a dental implant treatment. This attitude presents a challenge to clinicians as they seek to recommend the most effective solution to edentulism.
The good news is there are systems available that can reassure patients and manage the cost and time involved in placing conventional implants. Specifically, mini dental implants. By their attributes and benefits, mini implants can increase patient satisfaction and help grow a clinician’s practice.
The surgical protocols and included prosthetics of mini dental implants make them ideal additions to an oral implantologist’s armamentarium. Mini implants involve minimally invasive surgery, are affordable, simple, and available for immediate load. These aspects can make it easier to convince patients to agree to an implant solution.

As stated, the versatile MOR® Mini Implant line can be used for denture connection or crown and bridge fixation. The procedure is more affordable for both patients and providers. For optimal use of the system, Sterngold® offers an easy-to-use surgical kit backed with a surgical protocol that identifies steps to ensure clinical case success. The popularity of the MOR® Mini Implant System stems from its simplicity, versatility, and high potential for patient satisfaction.
An increasing number of DSOs, group practices, and private practice owners are gravitating towards mini implants, making them a primary option when presenting treatment plans to their edentulous patients. Patients who have previously rejected conventional overdenture treatment, choosing to settle on, and suffer from, a lower denture as they have not been offered a more desirable alternative, are the best candidates. Imagine how much easier it is for patients to say “yes” when they walk into a practice, finding out that they can leave with functioning overdentures on the same visit.
A significant number of successful cases using MOR® mini dental implants involve patients benefiting from overdentures; a success rate indicative of patient satisfaction. Cost-wise, clinicians concur that the mini implants make for an effective and affordable alternative that both they and their patients agree on.
To better understand the positive impact the MOR® Mini Implant System, educational and technical support is available. Sterngold® offers year-round mini implant courses that deliver a deeper dive into the technology, including the surgical procedure involved. In just a few hours, a dental professional will learn technical and clinical information, as well as, valuable practice building strategies to approach patients needing the system plus identify a new demographic within dental implants. The training provides tools that can help increase practice revenues and sustain growth with MOR® mini dental implants, stemming primarily from patient satisfaction. After all, the best promotion is always a testimonial from a happy patient.
No patient wants to deal with an unsecured denture and clinicians understand. Through the MOR® Mini Implant System, DSOs and private practice owners have found the “sweet spot” to between patient approval and satisfaction, with practice growth.
