Mini Dental implants, also known as the MDI, are ultra-small biocompatible titanium alloy implant screws. A Manhattan dentist by the name of Victor I. Sendax designed and started utilizing his innovative technique over 20 years ago. In 1998, Dr. Sendax, approached Dr. Ronald A. Bulard, who had previously formed the IMTEC Corporation, with his new implant concept. Convinced they were onto something special, Drs. Sendax and Bulard spent countless hours of studying and refining Dr. Sendax’s original creative design. Dr. Bulard recommended adding a single one-piece o-ball to Dr. Sendax’s design. With Dr. Bulard’s enhancements and Dr. Sendax’s patented insertion protocol, the IMTEC Sendax MDI was created. The MDI consists of a miniature 1. 8mm titanium/alloy implant that acts like the root of a tooth and a retaining fixture containing an o-ring that is incorporated into the base of a patient’s denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the retaining fixture acts like a socket. The o-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the patient’s gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces. This minimally invasive technique is fast becoming the system of choice for stabilizing the prosthesis of dental patients. Over the past several years, IMTEC has observed amazing changes in dental practices using the MDI.
