Mini Dental Implants

For patients who are having difficulty adjusting to dentures, and those who may not be candidates for full dental implants, mini-dental implants can be a terrific alternative. 3M MDI (Mini-Dental Implants) are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and can serve as an affordable, effective, and less invasive method of securing dentures and helping those with missing teeth speak, eat, and smile with greater confidence. Mini-dental implants can be placed in just one office visit, with only minimally invasive surgery and no multi-step implantation process.

For patients who rely on dentures to replace missing teeth, mini–dental implants can serve as powerful reinforcement and help them feel more like natural teeth.

Mini-Dental Implants for Teeth Replacement

Mini-dental implants can help those who rely on dentures for teeth replacement, providing support for individual dentures as well as cemented crowns and bridges. They can prevent denture slippage and be counted on to secure your dentures and help you smile, speak, and chew without worrying about them moving or gliding. In addition to the many functional benefits mini-dental implants provide, they also typically require only one office visit that often lasts just over an hour.

It’s only been a few days with my new mini implants but I had a cheese steak last night and was able to enjoy it and not worry about my dentures flopping around. I am so happy so far. Thanks for all your help.

The Mini Implant Procedure

3M MDI mini-dental implant procedures involve the placement of a small titanium rod into the gumline. This rod mimics the tooth root, and provides support for your denture. The entire process is minimally invasive and can be performed right here in our office. There are no sutures necessary and the healing process is usually quite rapid.

Mini-dental implants can not only give you long-term stabilization of dentures on both the upper and lower gumlines, they can also significantly reduce problems with trapped food particles and what’s known as “denture breath.” For patients who rely on dentures to replace missing teeth, mini-dental implants can serve as powerful re-enforcements and help them feel more like natural teeth.
