About Mini Dental Implants
What are Mini Dental Implants?
The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining connector incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the connector acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture securely in place. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for functional mobility while withstanding the natural lifting forces which tend to unseat your denture.
How does Mini Dental Implant Technology Broaden My Options?
Dental implant therapy has been one of the most significant advances in dentistry in the past 25 years. Tens of thousands of grateful patients bear witness to the benefits derived from the opportunity to obtain a replacement for lost teeth that restores their smiles and confidence. Several different types of implants and restorations are available. The choice depends upon the amount of bone available, the patient’s general health and restoration preference.
The computer and medical worlds are both working hard to develop smaller and smaller components. In similar fashion, a smaller version of the dental implant has been successfully utilized in selected cases. These mini implants (1.8mm diameter) enable your periodontist to provide greater denture stability for those without enough bone to allow for full sized implants to be placed, or are in on-going therapy from one prosthetic system to another.
How are Mini Dental Implants Placed?
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in-office, with local anesthesia or a light sedation to help make you more comfortable. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, MDI Implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures. It is a one-step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery, no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
