For more than 10 years, dentists have been helping patients regain confidence in their full and partial dentures by using 3M™ ESPE™ MDI Mini Dental Implants for denture stabilization. 3M ESPE's MDI Mini Dental Implant system is minimally invasive and immediately stabilizes loose dentures using a 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 three retention options and attachment designs that forgive up to 30 degrees divergence with no need for an angle correction inventory. 3M ESPE mini dental implants are available in diameters of 1.8mm, 2.1mm, 2.4mm and 2.9mm at lengths of 10mm, 13mm, 15mm and 18mm.
3M ESPE is no longer offering the MDI Seminar Training Programs. Please continue to check here for more resources as they become available.
