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.
