Mini Dental Implants


Mini Dental Implants

If you have dentures, do you experience any of the following?

Are you unable to eat what you like?
Does food get trapped under your dentures?
Do your dentures shift, tilt and move?
Are you afraid to smile?

With Mini Dental Implants, you can put these uncomfortable difficulties of dentures behind you.

What is a Mini Dental Implant?

A Mini Dental Implant (MDI) is comprised of two-components: an ultra-small 1.8mm titanium alloy implant screw that acts like the root of a natural tooth, and a retaining fixture that is built into the base of your denture.

The head of the implant screw is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture, which contains a rubber O-ring, acts like a socket. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a pre-determined level of force.

The denture rests gently on the gum tissue.

MDIs enable a very good option for patients who are unable to withstand conventional implant surgery, or they don’t have enough bone available. Here at M Dental we can offer you permanent stability for your dentures and alleviate any concerns associated with denture wear.
