Navigating the world of dental treatments can be overwhelming, but at Cornerstone Dentistry, we’re here to simplify that journey for you. Among our suite of state-of-the-art solutions, the mini dental implants stand out as an innovative and minimally invasive option for many patients. Professional, yet always approachable, we’re eager to introduce you to this transformative dental solution.

Unpacking Mini Dental Implants

mini dental implants, often referred to as MDIs, are slender titanium posts that act as substitutes for tooth roots. They are significantly smaller than traditional implants, making them an excellent choice for patients who may not have sufficient bone density for conventional implants or those seeking a less invasive alternative.

The Procedure: Streamlined and Efficient

Your experience with mini dental implants starts with an in-depth consultation at Cornerstone Dentistry. Here, we evaluate your suitability for MDIs, explore your oral health, and discuss your desired outcomes.

The process of placing MDIs is relatively straightforward:

  1. Placement: The mini implants are gently inserted into the jawbone. Given their size, the procedure is quicker and less invasive than standard implants.
  2. Attachment: Owing to their design, MDIs often allow for immediate loading. This means prosthetics, like dentures or crowns, can sometimes be attached the same day or shortly after implant placement.
  3. Recovery: The smaller size of MDIs often leads to a faster healing time, with many patients reporting minimal discomfort.

Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Speedy Treatment and Recovery

The streamlined size and procedure often translate to quicker treatment times and faster healing.

Minimally Invasive

MDIs require less bone structure, making them suitable for patients who might not qualify for traditional implants.

Secure Dentures

For those with dentures, MDIs can provide a secure anchor, ensuring they stay in place without slipping.


Given the simplicity and speed of the procedure, mini dental implants can be a more cost-effective option for many.

What Sets Cornerstone Dentistry’s MDIs Apart?

Tips for Aftercare: Making the Most of Your MDIs


  • Maintain a robust oral hygiene routine, brushing and flossing regularly.
  • Schedule and attend regular check-ups at Cornerstone Dentistry.
  • Opt for soft foods in the initial days post-procedure, allowing your mouth to heal.


  • Neglect oral hygiene thinking that implants are immune to issues. Proper care ensures longevity.
  • Engage in habits like smoking, which can hinder the healing process and the long-term success of your implants.
  • Use your new implants to open packages or chew on hard items like ice.
