Mini Dental Implants

Loose, ill-fitting or unsightly dentures?

For patients who wear dentures, few developments have been as important in recent years as the introduction of Mini Dental Implants (MDI).

MDI are the revolutionary solution to the stabilisation of one’s loose dentures, providing them with the opportunity to continue enjoying everyday life without any worries or concerns. MDI offer recipients an added comfort and confidence to continue laughing, smiling, talking and eating without apprehensions surrounding their dentures.


What are Mini Dental Implants?


MDI are miniature titanium alloy implant screws that behave in a very similar way like the natural root of a tooth would, providing a long term stabilisation solution. The implants are placed in the jawbone, with the heads of the implants allowing for the dentures to be 'fixed' at the base of the implant for a comfortable and natural fit.

MDI play an important role in combatting the problem of dentures that are loose, fit poorly, or unsightly appearance that may impact the wearer socially and practically. They can be used for partial denture and full dentures in either the upper or lower jaws. The standard procedure usually takes less than a few hours to perform and allows patients to resume their normal activities virtually immediately.

In nearly all cases where MDI have been fitted, dentures can be stabilised on the same day that the MDI is fitted. Due to the minimally invasive nature of this procedure, patients will not require a long period to heal.

MDI play an important role in combatting the problem of dentures that are loose or fit poorly, both which may impact the wearer socially and practically. The standard insertion procedure of the implants takes less than a few hours to perform and can be applied to either the lower jaw, involving generally 4-5 mini dental implants, or the upper, requiring 6-8 mini dental implants. This quick procedure allows patients to resume their normal activities virtually immediately.

Advantages of Mini Dental Implants


Fitting MDI is a procedure that is relatively painless for denture patients, and is used as a long-term solution.

Those who have been fitted with MDI can enjoy a number of benefits, from better-fitting dentures to reduced instances of bad breath and improved oral hygiene. Most importantly, MDI can relieve the discomfort that can sometimes result from ill-fitting dentures.

Many MDI patients say they benefit not only from the peace of mind of having secure dentures, but also an overall improved quality of life. With a quick recovery time, patients are generally able to eat their favourite foods again within a few days of placement, and are able to smile and speak with confidence.
Best of all, MDI are an appealing, affordable alternative to traditional implant treatment at a lower cost without the complex surgery, insufficient bone support and long recovery periods.
