Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?
At our Potomac Falls dental practice, Lake Center Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Amear M. Tadros offers a variety of dental implant solutions for patients with missing teeth. While traditional dental implants can be expensive and may require additional procedures to support the dental implant, our dentist provides MDI Implants, otherwise known as mini dental implants. These implants are ideal for patients with adequate vertical bone density who are looking for the health and aesthetic benefits of a dental implant with added convenience.
Mini Dental Implants vs. Dental Implants
Mini dental implants and conventional implants share the same benefits such as:
- Made out of the same biocompatible titanium alloy
- Support jaw bone strength and density
- Replace the root of the missing tooth
- Support a variety of restorations
The main difference between the two is that MDIs are smaller in diameter.
The Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are perfect for patients who are not eligible for conventional implants. Due to their size, they can be placed in areas of reduced bone density, where traditional implants cannot. This makes receiving new teeth easily accessible to patients. As there are an amount of procedures needed for the full tooth replacement is minimal, mini implant offer affordability and shorter treatments.
Patients should note that an in-depth consultation with our experienced implant dentist, Dr. Tadros is recommended when determining whether a mini dental implant is right for you. Depending on your bite, oral health, and jaw configuration, mini dental implants can be an ideal, affordable replacement for missing teeth.

What Restorations Can Be Used with Mini Dental Implants?
Just like conventional implants, MDIs support crowns, bridges, and removable over-dentures or snap-on dentures. At our Potomac Falls dental practice we provide each of the following:
Porcelain Crowns – Custom made to fit your smile, our porcelain crowns are supported by mini dental implants. These tooth-colored cosmetic restorations allow for the replacement of a missing tooth and are the most ideal for lost front teeth.
Fixed Porcelain Bridges – Using cosmetically appealing dental materials, porcelain bridges are made to look just like the rest of your smile. These can replace molars and can be cemented, or fixed to dental implants.
Removable Overdentures – Edentulous patients, those who are missing a full arch of teeth, can benefit from removable overdentures supported by mini dental implants. Depending on the bone density and other anatomic factors, upper overdentures can be completed with more implants than the minimal two needed for lower implant overdentures.
