Mini Dental Implants, known as MDI, are one of the most recent developments in Oral Health Technology. The cost is more affordable than traditional implants, so if money is an object and your insurance cannot cover as much of your Cosmetic Surgery as you would like, please consider Mini Dental Implants.
Mini Dental Implants are different from traditional dental implants:
Mini Dental Implants vs Traditional Implants
Mini Dental Implants are smaller than traditional dental implants. The titanium implant of a traditional dental implant averages 5mm. Its size can ofter necessitate a bone graft to supplement the substance of the patient's jaw bone. Since the length of the implant has a greater impact on durability than width, the 3mm width of the mini dental implant does not affect the longevity of the implant.
On the other hand, or, shall we say, the other tooth, the force of a mini implant may be less than a traditional implant. Since chewing may be affected, it is generally recommended, by dentists internationally and by the team of Cosmetic Dentists in Los Angeles Impeccable Dental Practice, that molars be replaced with traditional dental implants to ensure maximum chewing strength and comfort.
Additionally, the mini dental implants are a less invasive procedure and can often be implanted and finished in one visit to our Los Angeles office. Traditional implants usually require two, or even three visits. The healing process is shorter as well, which is good for many patients, and mini dental implants cost less than their larger (albeit stronger) counterparts.
Reviews are pouring in from all over the world, and it looks like the success rate for mini dental implants is good. In the short term, it is similarly reliable as traditional dental implants. However if you are a tooth grinder, you might not be the best candidate for the mini dental implants as the crowns will be more easily eroded.

Mini Dental Implants for Dentures
Implant supported denture stabilization is a dentistry technique gaining in popularity. Dentures can be very uncomfortable and make it difficult to chew. Stabilizing dentures with titanium implants can be a low cost method for combining stability with affordability.
