What are Mini Dental Implants?
The Mini Dental Implant System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a pre-determined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.
This system is frequently used to support fixed crowns and bridgework for people who don’t want a removable denture.
How does Mini Dental Implant (MDI) Technology Broaden My Options?
Dental Implant therapy has been one of the most significant advances in dentistry in the past 25 years. Tens of thousands of grateful patients testify to the benefits of replacing lost teeth and restoring confidence in their smile. Several different types of implants and restorations are available. The choice depends upon the amount of bone available, the patient’s general health, and restoration preference.
The computer and medical worlds are both striving to develop smaller and smaller components. In similar fashion, a smaller version of the dental implant has been successfully utilized. MDI’s are more versatile than conventional implants because they can be used in patients who do not have enough bone to support the larger, conventional implants. Recently many people have gained access to the benefits of implant dentistry because at MDICA (Mini Dental Implant Centers of America), we make implants affordable—typically half the price of conventional implant treatment. This affordability also enables people to expand their treatment options, allowing some to realize their dream of fixed bridgework instead of removable dentures. Because mini dental implants require less bone, this option eliminates the need for expensive, time-consuming bone graft procedures.
How are Mini Dental Implants Placed?
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist’s office, with local anesthesia or a light sedation to help make you more comfortable. Using a precise, controlled, minimally-invasive surgical technique, Mini Dental Implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures or fixed crown and bridgework. It is a simple and gentle procedure that most people begin using their teeth the same day. This is a major advantage over conventional implants which typically require multiple visits, multiple surgeries, and months of healing.
Welcome to Mini Dental Implant Centers of America (MDICA)!
Our focus is on providing you with the revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry. This unique approach to modern dentistry offers new opportunities for individuals who have lost one or more teeth. For the first time, we can replace missing teeth with implant supported cemented and/or removable restorations in as little as one visit, without the complications of major oral surgery and long healing times.
