MDI Mini Dental Implants
They immediately stabilize loose dentures using a 90-minute patented protocol, often completed without a flap and sometimes using an existing denture. MDI mini dental implants are available in diameters of 1.8 mm, 2.1 mm, 2.4 mm and lengths of 10 mm, 13 mm, 15 mm, and 18 mm.
Patient in tears!!!!
My first placement of dental MDI implants resulted in tears--------OF JOY for both myself and the patient. A resorbed upper ridge and little retention ability in the post malar pocket area, 3 relines later the patient and i both needed more. Initial installation of implants was smoother than expected and the patient on plavix and aspirin was a snap as i used a laser for the initial "puncture site". When attaching the o-ring to the implant to engage in the acrylic of the denture, i thought i was going to pull out the implants. When snapping it back in, i waited 10 minutes to let the patient just wear it. When i asked her to remove it, she started crying----i can't get it out as i retorted---that's why you came here. Patient was ecstatic and two days post-op yeilded no pain or adjustments.
