|Mini Dental implants, MDIs, are very similar to traditional dental implants, except the titanium post used is much smaller.
Mini dental implants take the place of a tooth root and are anchored into the jawbone. They were originally designed to retain dentures, but as the technology evolved so have the dental uses.
Unlike a traditional dental implant, which consists of two pieces, a mini dental implant is a single piece fitting with a ball end. The ball end snaps into a socket that is attached to a dental appliance such as a denture.
In addition to retaining dentures, mini dental implants have been used instead of traditional dental implants for a single tooth replacement, if the biting stresses are not too great.
Mini dental implant versus traditional dental implant advantages:
• Significantly lower cost
• Smaller implant size
• Greatly reduced post-implantation recovery time
• Dentures or other appliances can be installed and removed easily due to design
