Mini implantsWhy Choose Mini Dental Implants?
Laugh, talk, and live with comfort and confidence.
3M™ (MDI) is a minimally invasive, affordable dental implant procedure that can provide the
denture stability you've always wanted - without the costs and time associated with full-size implant treatment.
Smaller than full-size implants, mini dental implants are inserted to retain and stabilize your lower dentures.
3M™ MDI mini dental implants:
- Typically do not require an incision in the gums
- Cost significantly less than full-size implants
- Can often be placed with a 2 hour appointment
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Mini Dental Implant Options
Receiving regular implants takes several months and requires at least two dental appointments. Certain treatments require additional visits for bone-grafting to supply sufficient bone to support the implant posts. Still, other patients aren't able to undergo invasive surgery and repeat dental appointments, or have lost too much bone mass in their jaws to receive a full-sized implant, and this is perfectly normal. In these cases, mini implants may be the best option. Dentists can usually install mini implants in only one visit using local anesthesia and without any sutures.
Losing natural teeth can be fairly traumatic, spoiling your confidence just as much as your smile. Mini dental implants allow you to speak and eat normally again without worrying about how this accident could affect your daily routine. Your dentist can tell you if mini implants are the best choice for you.
