SARASOTA, Florida (January 21, 2014) – Driven by his commitment to offering patients the most advanced treatment options available, Dr. Brian P. Hoffman of Advanced Dental Health, PLLC, one of the area’s leading general dentistry practices, is pleased to announce the completion of his Advanced MDI Certification.
MDI Mini Dental Implant Systems are smaller in diameter than standard-platform implants and they have a one-piece design that allows them to be placed in areas where standard-platform implants cannot be placed and without the need for a separate bone grafting surgery to prepare the area. Mini implants can frequently be loaded immediately and used for chewing on the same day. In some cases, there may be a healing requirement of up to 3 months as compared to as much as 6 months with standard-platform implants.
This revolutionary system can be used for single tooth restorations with crowns, bridge abutments where there are no teeth present to connect the bridge, pier abutments for long-span bridge support, and unparalleled stabilization of full and partial dentures. In short, mini implants open a whole new avenue for many patients who were not good candidates for standard-platform implants.
“Patients who qualify for the mini implant system are extremely happy not to have to undergo the bone grafting surgery that is frequently required to prepare for a standard implant, they recover more quickly and with much less post-operative discomfort, and they get to spend less money on a superior outcome.” said Dr. Hoffman.
