Looking for a convenient, simple solution to replace missing teeth in tight spaces where a full dental implant might be difficult or inconvenient? Are you seeking a denture stabilization system to keep lower dentures from slipping? Dr. Krothapalli offers MDI mini implants for exactly these situations.
What is an MDI Mini Implant?
A mini implant is a type of dental implant that is offered in special situations where a full-sized implant would not be ideal. Mini implants are typically used in two types of situations:
- To replace small teeth, like missing incisors, in tight spaces where installing a full dental implant would be difficult
- To provide stabilization for dentures, preventing them from shifting in your mouth when you speak, eat, and drink
Mini implants are different from regular dental implants in a few important ways:
- Small size: As its name suggests, a mini implant is much smaller than other dental implants–roughly half the width.
- Less invasive: Mini implants are not inserted as deep into the jaw bone, so the implant surgery is less invasive and has a shorter healing period.
- Shorter surgery: Dr. Krothapalli can install MDI mini implants in as little as 90 minutes, requiring minimal anesthetic and a shorter time in the dentist’s chair.
- Lower cost: Because of their smaller size and easier installation, mini implants cost less.
Benefits of Mini Implants
