ST. PAUL, Minn. – 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. Now, this market-leading solution is even more patient-pleasing, as the esthetics of the metal housings have been improved with a new pink color that helps the housings blend more naturally with dentures. The metal housings remain available in standard (MH-1), micro (MH-2) or O-cap (MH-3) designs.
The addition of pink metal housings adds to the appeal of MDI Mini Dental Implants as an alternative for patients who cannot withstand the rigors of conventional implant surgery, don’t have enough bone to allow for full-sized implants to be placed, or are seeking a lower cost option than traditional implant treatment.
“By blending more naturally with dentures, these new pink metal housings will allow patients to eat, talk, and live with comfort and confidence, said Karen Capiz, U.S. marketing manager for implants. “We are proud to continue to lead innovation in the small-diameter implant category by making the system more attractive to patients and dentists.”
Dentists may learn more about how MDI Mini Dental Implants can help build their practice by attending 1-2 day MDI Education Seminars. Introductory seminar attendees learn the minimally invasive surgical placement protocol as well as prosthetic techniques, and become prepared to stabilize full dentures using the MDI system. MDI Expanded Indications Training Seminars are intended for doctors who have attended the introductory certification MDI seminar or who have experience placing implants.
