Complete Your Smile With Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are ultra-small diameter (l.8 millimeter
width), biocompatible titanium alloy implant screws, conceived and designed over
20 years ago by a dentist, Victor Sendax, DDS. Dr. Sendax originally
created the unique design of this unique dental product as a transitional device
to help support fixed bridge replacements for lost teeth. His novel theory was
that mini implants could function free standing by themselves or in combination
with natural tooth supports and/or larger conventional type dental implants.
This was a revolutionary concept in dental science.
The most effective use of this unique dental product
is stabilization of a lower denture. There are approximately 50,000,000 people
in the United States who are "edentulous" (literally meaning lacking teeth) who
struggle daily with prosthetic devices.
A majority suffer a great deal of
discomfort as a result of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Many denture wearers
simply withdraw from any type of social engagement as a result of being
compelled to wear them. Moreover, it's not uncommon for family members to
complain about a denture wearer's disagreeable breath as a result of food being
trapped and decaying under their denture prosthesis. Successful placement of the
Mini Dental Implant addresses and solves all of these social and practical
problems. Denture patients all over the world have experienced relief from loose
or ill-fitting dentures from doctors who are trained to place the MDI. Uniquely,
the MDI can be utilized to stabilize a denture in a couple of hours by a trained
doctor, with the patient leaving the clinic with a stabilized prosthesis.
The standard insertion protocol for mini dental implants calls
for four of them to be gently screwed into the front of a patient's lower jaw.
This is a relatively painless procedure that can be performed by a general
dentist, requiring only a mild anesthesia. The mini dental implants, which are
approximately the size of wooden toothpicks, are placed about five millimeters
apart in the patient's mandible. The patient's denture is then carefully
adjusted by the dentist to allow it to snap onto the four mini implants. The
result? A tight fitting, completely reliable system that allows a patient to
speak and eat with confidence. The Mini Dental Implants are placed in about an
hour's time. Because of the unique, minimally invasive procedure, the minute
size of the implants, and the characteristic placement area, the typical Mini
Dental Implant patient can enjoy a light meal an hour or so after having the
mini implants placed. Further, a denture patient who has had his or her
prosthesis stabilized with MDI can remove and replace the denture easily after a
little practice, and can easily utilize good dental hygiene. All in all, the MDI
is quite satisfying.
Imagine talking, eating and smiling without worrying
about how your teeth look or feel!
