The MDI mini dental implant system is minimally invasive and immediately stabilizes loose dentures using a 90-minute patented protocol, often completed without a flap and frequently using the patient’s existing denture. MDIs are designed for stability in soft and dense bone, which is essential for immediate loading. Attachment designs are available for custom retention, with 3 retention options as well as attachment designs that forgive up to 30° divergence with no need for an angle correction inventory. The implants are available in diameters of 1.8, 2.1, 2.4, and 2.9 mm and at lengths of 10, 13, 15, and 18 mm to accommodate a wide range of patient needs. 3M ESPE offers affordable one-day MDI certification seminars led by some of the most experienced small-diameter implant clinicians in the world.
