Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and roots. Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where the teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, acting as a tooth root substitute. Posts are attached to the implant allowing for dental prosthetic attachments.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini Dental Implants (MDI) are a cost-effective treatment procedure also known as a Denture Stabilization System.
The MDI system consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts as a retaining fixture and is incorporated into the base of your denture, false tooth, or bridge. The procedure generally takes just over 1 hour. It is a one step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery with no sutures. This system is especially effective on the lower dentures and can eliminate the traditional slipping or discomfort associated with traditional dentures.
