Mini Implants / Dentures in Houston
Imagine visiting your dentist in the morning, having a mini-implant system placed in just a few hours, and then enjoying lunch with a friend at your favorite restaurant. During your relaxing lunch, you eat comfortably, laugh, and talk with confidence as your new denture is securely and firmly held in place.
Well, when you choose our Houston dentists and in-house periodontist, that situation can be a reality for you!
What are Mini Implants?
The IMTEC MDI System is also referred to as the mini implants system (1.8mm in diameter), developed to provide greater denture stability for patients who can’t withstand conventional dental implant surgery, who don’t have enough bone to allow for full-sized implants, or who are in the process of changing from one prosthetic system to another.
- The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that functions as a prosthetic tooth root, and a retaining fixture installed into the base of your denture.
- When in place, the denture gently rests on the gum, and the implant fixtures allow for tiny movements, while withstanding natural lifting forces.
- MDI placement is a one-step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery and no sutures.
- Healing time is shorter than typical denture placement procedures.
