If you are searching for a permanent solution for your missing teeth but are looking for an alternative to traditional dental implants, mini implants may be the solution for you. Mini dental implants, or MDIs, are minimally invasive, and are non-surgical. They are typically used to stabilize dentures, such as in All-on-4® treatment.
Mini implants are a cost-effective procedure. Typically, the can be fitted within a single visit and have less risk involved than other implant procedures. They also typically avoid bone grafting and waiting for the implant sites to heal. They are especially advantageous for patients with significant loss in bone structure or density. The implant is small and looks like a tooth, generally made with titanium to ensure longevity. Coated with calcium phosphate, mini implants promote fast healing and are designed to fit easily into your restorative prosthetic.
