How Do Dental Implants Work?
If you have teeth missing, you know your situation is both inconvenient and harmful to your overall health. There is an alternative to crowns, bridges and dentures. A dental implant is secure, permanent and can return the confidence you feel with strong teeth.
This surgical procedure places implants below the gums. The implants fuse with your jawbone, using your body’s natural healing to create an anchor. These implants are then used as a base to securely hold your replacement teeth in place.
Call your local Christie Dental dentist. Because surgery is involved, you must be in good health and have healthy gums. Additionally, your bones must be strong enough to support the procedure, so not everyone is a candidate. Just like natural teeth, dental implants require consistant care and maintenance. Regular visits to Christie Dental and daily oral hygiene can mean a lifetime of good oral health.

The MDI System
Creating a solid anchor with a miniature titanium implant, The MDI System uses a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The spherical head of the implant fits securely into the retaining fixture, which uses a rubber O-ring to help hold the head in place at a predetermined level of force. Once it is in place, the denture rests comfortably on the gums.
