Get Your Smile Back With Mini Dental Implants

There are many people around the world who have had their teeth badly damaged due to physical trauma or poor oral hygiene. While some people choose to continue living with their poor dental structure, others feel awkward about their bad teeth and try to hide their smiles with tight lips or a protective hand.

Today a large number of people with no teeth, or a mouthful of rotted teeth opt to replace the missing teeth with dental implants. Teeth implantation technology has been used in dentistry with a 98% success rate over the last two decades.

Since dental implants can cost quite a lot, average people with missing or crummy teeth who can’t afford fixed implants often go for removable dentures. However, most denture wearers are unhappy with their dentures because of the problems as they cause various problems, including discomfort, sores or infection and irritation of the gums.

Is there any other option then? The answer is yes, mini dental implants (MDIs).

Mini dental implants, the latest technology in modern dentistry, can help restore your freedom to talk, laugh and smile with renewed confidence and enable you to enjoy your favorite foods.

What are Mini Dental Implants?

Sometimes referred to as small diameter implants (SDIs) or narrow body implants (NDIs), this form of implants are narrower one-piece titanium appliances that are placed using a minimally invasive, non-surgical approach.

Mini dental implants can alleviate your missing teeth and denture problems. This unique, less invasive and time-efficient technique helps toothless people achieve that radiant smile as well as enables denture wearers achieve better denture stability, eliminating their need for messy denture adhesives.

How it Works?

A mini dental implant consists of a miniature titanium implant that is implanted into the jawbone to provide support to the lower denture, and a metal housing that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and a socket and a rubber o-ring are housed in the metal housings to provide the seal that locks the pieces into place.

In the procedure, a dentist inserts the small anchor points (around 2 millimeters wide) into your jawbone. The o-ring fits over the ball and the ball-shaped head of the implant sticks out of the gums and snaps securely into a retaining socket contained on the inside of a denture. The o-ring stabilizes and holds your denture securely in place.

Who are Good Candidates?

People with lost teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw and those currently wearing removable dentures are good candidates for mini dental implants.

Whether your teeth are missing, have huge gaps in between, are badly damaged, or you need dentures, mini dental implants are a safe and more trustworthy procedure that will enable you to laugh, talk and live with comfort and confidence.


The revolutionary benefits of mini dental implants include:

  • With mini dental implants, missing teeth can be replaced with cemented crowns & bridges and/or dentures.
  • They firmly secure and hold dentures in place, and prevent them from slipping or falling out at meal times.
  • The procedure can be accomplished without the complications of major oral surgery and long healing times.
  • These implants can be placed using a simple, gentle, non-surgical approach.
  • The procedure typically does not require an incision in the gums.
  • They can often be placed in as little as one visit.
  • They are single piece implants, roughly half the size of conventional-style implants. Unlike full-size implants, mini dental implants do not contain a screw hole into which other components can be attached.
  • They can help you eat, speak and smile with renewed confidence.
  • No loose-fitting dentures, no need for denture adhesives or pastes and no lengthy healing period are other advantages.
  • Mini dental implants help you preserve bone and make your facial appearance aesthetically more appealing.
  • They cost significantly less, about half the cost of traditional implants in fact.
