Mini implants for lower jaw

Placing 6-8 mini implants in the lower jaw does not take a lot of time so we do have a advantage in someone who is gagging too much but this treatment may not last you forever.  Mini implants are thin narrow implants and may fracture over time.  I don't think that this is a good long term plan. 

6 or 8 mini dental implants for lower jaw?

Sounds like you are asking about implants for your upper jaw to eliminate the palatal portion of your denture which is probably what is making you gag.  Mini implants will be less expensive up front, but may not give you the longevity that you would get with regular implants.  By eliminating the palatal  portion of the denture, you will be adding much more force and stress to the implants.  If the mini implants fail prematurely, the money you save now may not feel like a bargain then.  Do your due diligence now and investigate both alternatives.
