Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants, known as MDIs or MDI implants, are tiny biocompatible screws that act as tooth roots. Although many people believe this is a relatively new way to simulate human tooth roots, the surgical technique itself has been around for nearly two decades. It wasn’t until 1998, though, after countless hours of studying, that the technique was refined and thousands of doctors began making it
part of their practices’ regimens.

What Are Mini Dental Implants Exactly?

Mini dental implants are only 1.88 mm in size and are made of a titanium alloy. They are placed into the jaw, and a retaining fixture with an O-ring is incorporated into the patient’s denture. This ball-and-socket-shaped combination allows the denture to be seated properly and holds the denture at a pre-determined level of force. This is important because it allows for vertical movement while withstanding natural ‘lifting’ forces.

Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?

There are several reasons, actually. One of the most important is the time factor. MDI implants utilize a 5-step approach compared to the traditional 30-step procedure of conventional implant placements and restorations. Other benefits include…

  • Minimally invasive
  • One hour One stage denture stabilization
  • Perfect for patients with conventional denture instability
  • Can be used as a temporary or long-term fix
  • Delivered for a reasonable cost
  • Ideal for patients with jaw bone atrophy
