How do mini implants broaden my options?

Dental implant therapy has been one of the most significant advances in dentistry in the past 25 years. Hundreds of thousands of grateful denture patients have experienced the immediate improvement in their quality of life and confidence that long term denture stability brings. Several types of implants and restorations are available. The choice depends upon the amount of bone available, the patient's general health and restoration preferences. We'll discuss the options that will work best for you.

What are the advantages of MDI placement?

MDIs are a true innovation for people who are reluctant to have invasive dental surgery and for denture wearers.  One significant advantage MDIs have over full implants is that they offer a viable treatment choice for patients who have experienced extensive bone loss.  Depending on the quality and density of jawbone available at the implant site, four of these mini implants may be implanted at one time.  Unlike full implants, MDIs don’t require invasive surgery, which makes MDIs a gentler option.  MDIs also minimize cost. Full-sized implants can be expensive to place, especially if many visits are required.  The most common use for MDIs is to stabilize a lower denture, however they can be placed anywhere in the mouth.

Here are some of the other advantages associated with MDIs:

Better smelling breath.

Clearer speech.

Easier chewing and biting.

Easier cleaning.

Firmer denture fit.

High success rate. Less discomfort.

No cutting or sutures.

No need for adhesives or messy bonding agents.

No rotting food beneath the denture.

No slipping, wobbling or discomfort.

Permanent results.

Quick treatment time.

Reduced costs.

How are mini dental implants placed?

The whole mini dental implant placement procedure takes approximately one hour.  Generally, in the case of lower jaw implants, four MDIs will be placed about 5mm apart.  Prior to inserting MDIs, the dentist will use many diagnostic and planning tools to find the optimal place to implant them.

Here is a brief overview of the MDI placement procedure:

A mild anesthetic is administered.

A small hole is drilled in the jawbone to situate each MDI.

Each implant is screwed into place and tightened with a winged wrench.

Finally, a ratchet wrench is used to fully stabilize the MDIs.

The denture is measured against the mini implants and marks are made to indicate where the MDIs will fit.

The denture is sent to the laboratory to have holes drilled to accommodate the MDIs.

Once the denture has been fully modified, it can be affixed to the MDIs.  The rubber O-ring on each MDI snaps into the designated spot on the denture, and the denture then rests snugly on the gum tissue.  MDIs hold the denture comfortably in a tight-fitting way for a lifetime.

In almost all cases, no stitching is required and no real discomfort is felt after the procedure.  After the denture placement procedure is complete, light eating can be resumed.  The denture can be removed and cleaned at will. MDIs enhance the natural beauty of the smile and restore full functionality to the teeth. A NEW SMILE IN JUST A FEW HOURS
