Dr. V. asks:
Is there a difference with the terms “narrow diameter implants”, “mini implants” or “small diameter implants”? I’ve heard that FDA approved term for implants 1.8 to 3.0mm in diameter are termed as “narrow diameter implants” and that 3.0 to 3.5 as “Mini implants” and 3.5 to 6.0 mm as regular diameter implants. Is this information authentic? I am having difficulty verifying this information. Also, what are the potential legal implications of using other than conventional implants?
