Mini-Implants for Toothless Patients

Options for edentulous, or “toothless”, patients are not only limited to bridges and dentures. Mini dental implant (MDI) is a viable solution for people with missing teeth. MDI is the most modern and effective treatment for replacing their original teeth. This is also an alternative for individuals who have insufficient bone mass.

Mini-implants, as the name suggests, are smaller versions of normal sized dental implants that are made of thin posts of titanium. Titanium has a unique property that fuses with the bone known as osseointegration. MDI’s help stabilize the lower denture and eliminate the annoying discomfort of a shifting denture.

Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

    • Minimally invasive treatment
      The treatment for MDI is minimally invasive. New Albany dentist, Dr. Ronald Receveur, uses local anesthetic for the procedure. He also offers IV Sedation for patients with severe dental anxiety.


    • Fast treatment session
      The procedure takes only a few hours to finish. In just a single visit, you leave and smile with a brand new set of pearly white teeth. The new dentures can be attached and snapped directly into the implant immediately after the surgery.


    • Less healing time
      The minimally invasive nature of the procedure allows the implants to heal faster. Full function of the teeth is restored almost immediately.


    • Versatile
      MDI’s are small in size and comes in different shapes. The size and shape allows the patient to undergo treatment without the need for invasive bone grafting. Individuals who have inadequate bone mass can still achieve stabilization using this type of minimally invasive procedure.


  • Cost-effective
    Your New Albany dental clinic offers affordable solutions for teeth replacement procedures. MDI’s are lower in cost because it only uses local anesthetic, requires a single trip to the clinic and is performed using smaller sized materials.
