￼What Are Mini Dental Implants?
A Mini Dental Implant (MDI) is a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and has a connector that is placed into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the connector acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture tightly and securely in place. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces. This innovative system and procedure was formally introduced to the United States dental community at an implant conference in Orlando, Florida in April, l999. It was an instant success and now represents one of the fastest growing segments of the dental product industry.
