Implants less than 3mm in diameter can be the best option in overdenture cases based on key criteria:
Does the patient have adequate bone for conventional implants?
Are there considerations for minimizing surgical invasiveness?
Are there patient financial considerations?
The LODI is designed to provide a specialty overdenture implant /attachment option where narrow ridges, minimized surgical invasiveness and financial considerations play a role in the implant choice and where a superior overdenture attachment can be utilized with no compromise.
3mm difference in height!
Less discomfort to patient when not wearing denture
O-Ball true one-piece can wear throughout time and then what?
Must vary placement protocol due to one size fits all design vs. ability to select different cuff heights
No more compromise
Key weaknesses of true one-piece O-Ball SDIs which can compromise patient care and satisfaction, future referrals and positive word of mouth:

Wear of o-rings and the high chairside maintenance requirement.
Potential devastating issue of attachment (ball) wear on an integrated implant.
