Mini Dental Implants (MDI) for Stable Dentures
What is the MDI Denture Stabilization System?
The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium alloy 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 with a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture firmly in place. When seated the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.
How are MDI Mini Implants placed?
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed at our office, with local anesthesia. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, MDI Implants are place into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures. Because of the minimally invasive nature of this procedure MDI placement doesn’t require a lengthy healing period, meaning dentures can be stabilized the same day the mini implants are placed.
