About Mini Dental Implants
The History of Mini Dental Implants
The advancement of dental implant technology first came about when Dr. Victor I. Sendax, began looking to develop a way to secure dental prosthetics on a long term basis, thus developing traditional dental implants. As dental implant technology progressed, Dr. Ron Bulard then developed mini dental implants (MDIs) as an easier, less invasive way to stabilize removable prosthetics.
Though developed much earlier on, mini dental implants were not approved for use by the FDA until 1999, after which they quickly grew to become the most sought after treatment for dental prosthetic stabilization. Today this form of implant treatment is helping men and women all over the world to achieve a natural, beautiful smile, and Jackson is no exception.

Mini Dental Implants help patients to restore their smile through a safer, less invasive treatment when compared to traditional implants. Up until a few years ago, dental implants were used specifically for fixed applications with great success. However today, mini dental implants make it possible to secure both fixed and removable applications.
The dental implant treatment involves implanting a small titanium screw into the jawbone, this provides a stable anchor for the dental prosthetic. Once attached, the dental prosthetic has the look and feel of natural teeth. Unlike traditional dental implant procedures, the mini dental implant treatment requires no incisions, making the treatment safer and less invasive. The treatment is also much faster when compared to traditional implants, patients often only require one dental visit for complete implantation.
With MDIs, patients can replace one tooth, a group of teeth or even an entire set of teeth. The dental technology does not require support from surrounding teeth, therefore overall dental health is also improved with treatment.
