All you need to know about mini dental implants
Welcome to the online resource for dental implants, which include larger root-form implants as well as the newer smaller mini-dental implants, or MDI’s. We have compiled a vast amount of knowledge to help you learn all you need to know about dental implants. The following contains information on implant costs, what to expect before, during, and after the procedure, and the selection of doctors who place dental implants. 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 doing some research here can now be of great benefit to the selection of the procedure and the doctors who perform these implant surgeries.
Dental implants are substitute tooth roots which anchor a replacement tooth or crown, a set of replacement teeth, or a denture plate.
Cambridge was an early pioneer in establishing implants as a superior, permanent, and more natural feeling and looking option for more patients.
Our implant protocol also offers options far superior to standard dentures and bridges – including for many who may have been told they are not a candidate for implants at all. Our implant protocol results in a more convenient, and affordable, solution than conventional implants for most patients.
The procedure is virtually painless.
Patients generally do not experience any discomfort, but if they do, it is 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 about a dozen years ago. Though it was new at the time and many were skeptical, we could see there were many potential benefits for our patients, so we began to explore this option immediately. Now we have probably done more mini-implants than any clinic in country.
Mini-implants and the simpler and safer procedures used with them are naturally much more affordable, costing about 1/3 the cost of the old conventional implants. In addition, for the past 5 years, after the economic downturn in 2008, we have worked to further lower our fees and to offer payment plans that reflect the challenges many people are facing.
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 6 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 tools that ensure the best results for our patients, like 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.
