All you need to know about mini dental implants
Welcome to the online resource for dental implants. We have compiled a vast amount of knowledge to help you learn all you need to know about the options available to you, from the larger root-form implants to the newer smaller mini-dental implants, also known as MDIs. The following pages contain information on implant costs, what to expect before, during and after the procedure, as well as some information on our clinic. If you or a loved one is considering either type of implant as an upgrade to secure dentures or to replace missing teeth more permanently, then this is an excellent resource to help you understand the procedure as well as get to know the doctors who perform these implant surgeries.
Cambridge was an early pioneer in establishing implants as a superior, permanent, and more natural looking and feeling option. Dental implants are substitute tooth roots which anchor a replacement tooth or crown, a set of replacement teeth, or a denture plate.
Our implant protocol also offers options far superior to standard dentures and bridges – including options for those who may have been told previously they are not a possible candidate for implants. Our implant protocol results in a much more convenient and affordable solution than conventional implants for most patients.
The procedure is virtually painless.
Patients generally do not experience any discomfort with dental implants, but if they do, it’s usually only for the first day or so and can be treated with ordinary over-the-counter pain medications such as Tylenol.
The technology for smaller diameter implants and minimally invasive procedures was introduced more than a decade ago. While some people were skeptical, we could see there were many potential benefits for our patients, so we immediately began to explore this option. Since then, we have possibly completed more mini-implants than any clinic in country.
There are so many benefits to using mini-implant technology. Since it is a simpler and less invasive procedure, it is often much more affordable than conventional implants, about 1/3 the cost. We understand this is an important element when trying to make choices regarding our health and welfare. In response to the economic downturn in 2008, we have worked to lower our fees and offer reasonable payment plans.
There are few clinics in the country that can install implants, even mini-implants, and have them ready for the patient to eat that afternoon. With six full-time doctors, a full staff and 20 treatment rooms, Cambridge is one of the largest and most up-to-date dental clinics in the country. We invest in all the latest tools to ensure the best results for our patients, such as 3-D CAT scans for precise analysis, planning and placement. Cambridge has a track record of superior results with fewer complications and shorter recovery periods.
