What are Mini Dental Implants?
The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture, The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the retaining fixture 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 at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.
Who can place dental implants?
Implant placement is not yet a recognized specialty. Therefore a general dentist can perform this procedure. However this is a relatively complex procedure, and you should question the dentist’s experience.
How long does it take for the implant to heal and the false tooth placed?
Normally about 3 months. In some instances it may take 4-6 months. However a new mini implant procedure is now available that provides immediate benefits. This new mini implant procedure is minimally invasive with a short recovery time is more affordable and is being used to immediately stabilize dentures.
Is the Mini Dental Implant FDA approved?
Yes, after providing satisfactory technical and clinical evidence to that agency that the product was safe for public use and in fact had beneficial attributes, the FDA granted its formal consent to market the Mini Dental Implant device not only as a transitional or temporary dental product, but significantly, as a long-term item. (IMTEC was the first company to receive long-term approval of its Mini Dental Implants from the FDA, and for several years was the only company to have that distinction).
What is the primary and most effective use for Mini Dental Implants?
The unique design is for denture stabilization. There are approximately 50,000,000 people in the United States who are “edentulous” (literally meaning lacking teeth) who struggle daily with prosthetic devices. A majority suffer a great deal of discomfort as a result of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Many denture wearers simply withdraw from any type of social engagement as a result of being compelled to wear them. Denture patients all over the world have experienced relief from loose or ill-fitting dentures from doctors who are trained to place the MDIs. Uniquely, the MDIs can be utilized to stabilize a denture in a couple of hours by a trained doctor, with the patient leaving the office with a stabilized prosthesis.
How are the Mini Implants placed and is there major surgery involved?
No, there is no major surgery involved. The Mini Dental Implant is designed to be placed straight through the tissue into the bone. Once the implant is engaged into the bone the implant is self tapping and with special tools used to place the implants the procedure takes less than 30 minutes. Then 30 minutes later after fitting the o-ring housings into the denture, you are able to go and enjoy a light meal an hour or so after having the Mini Dental Implants placed.
