Dr. D. asks:
I have a patient with a lower overdenture retained by a ball attachment (Ceka) placed in the root of the left canine. I want to provide a solution that would be more economic and give better results.
One solution I was thinking of, was placing one mini implant in the right canine area and a second between the central incisor area. Has anyone tried minis connected with teeth in overdentures in a situation like this? Is it likely that the mini’s will break or the periodontium will be compromised? If not minis, do you have any other ideas for this type of case?
