Physical disfigurement and functional impairments associated with facial trauma are a challenge to a prosthodontist, because even novel sophisticated surgical reconstructive techniques fail to provide adequate support for dental resection prosthesis. Therefore, different endosseous implants are often used as prosthesis-supporting elements. Manufacturers of dental implants have recently presented mini dental implants (MDIs) with diameter of only 1.8-2.4 mm. These implants allow very suitable prosthetic solutions within the range of their indications due to good osseointegration success rates, simple surgical technique, and immediate loading possibility. In this report, a case was presented for prosthetic rehabilitation including implantation of two Sendax type (IMTEC, Ardmore, Oklahoma, USA) MDIs in mental region, to obtain better retention and stability of the mandibular resection prosthesis and to improve function, phonation and aesthetics. The use of these implants, among aforementioned preferences, is also very cost-effective, so this implantation possibility should be taken into consideration during prosthetic treatment planning.
