The miniature titanium implants acts as the root of the tooth. The implant is then placed into the jawbone, involving minimally invasive surgery.
The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum and provide a solid foundation for dentures.
The heads of the implant is shaped like a ball that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated the denture gently rests on gum tissues. The placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily.

These mini implants allow maximum retention of dentures to those who do not have enough bone for support. The MDI implants are titanium based for durability & long lasting life span. The upper end of the implant resembles a small ball which is part of the support system for your dentures. When connected with a rubber O-ring, the implant can rest securely enough for you to eat all types of food, while allowing just enough micro-mobility for natural movement.
The MDI implants are done quickly and without extensive work. In less that two hours, patients can experience a secure denture fit.
Results may vary in individual cases.
Implants start as low as $950.
