What are Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants are only a few millimeters long.

Mini dental implants (MDI) were developed in order to provide more denture stability for those patients who:

  1. Cannot endure the stresses of conventional dental implant surgery.
  2. Do not have enough bone to allow full-size implants to be placed.
  3. Are in on-going therapy from one prosthetic system to another.

The tiny implants' head is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture is a socket with a rubber o-ring when the denture is put in position, the socket clamps over the ball and keeps it in place with a specified force.

Mini implants may usually be implanted in one to two visits from start to end. The bone does not need to recover for a long period. In most cases, mini implants can be placed, and the patient walks out with their dentures secured on the same day.
