3M ESPE conducts expert session on MDI



KARACHI – A specialist expert session on MDIs was conducted at the 3M Office in Karachi, and was chaired by Dr. Irfan Qureshi, President FIDP and the ambassador of ICOI in Pakistan.

During the proceedings it was established that 3M ESPE is the world’s leader in Mini Dental Implants. The session laid emphasis on the need for hands-on workshops as dental professionals in Pakistan have been in positive pursuit to master the 3M ESPE MDI System, which is the world’s leading and most advanced implant system.

Also expressed in the meeting that the 3M™ (MDI) is a minimally invasive, affordable dental implant procedure that can provide the denture stability that the patients have always wanted – without the costs and time associated with full-size implant treatment. Smaller than full-size implants, mini dental implants are inserted to retain and stabilize the lower dentures.

It was highlighted that the 3M™ MDI mini dental implants carry the following unmatched features which:

“typically do not require an incision in the gums

“cost significantly less than full-size implants

“can often be placed with a 2 hour appointment

and that the 3M™ Mini Dental Implant (MDI) Denture Stabilization System consists of:

“a metal housing that is incorporated into the base of the denture.

“a rubber O-ring, housed in the metal housings, to provide the seal that locks the pieces into place.

“mini titanium alloy dental implants, rooted into the jawbone, that act as an anchor to stabilize a lower denture.

The meeting concluded that because of the minimally invasive nature of the mini dental implant procedure, the MDI placement wouldn’t require the patients to go through a lengthy healing period.

Within a few days, the patient will be out and about, enjoying a lunch of their favorite foods, talking with ease, laughing and smiling freely. All the time, the patients are feeling a new stability in their dentures-secure that they have the staying power they need without messy denture adhesives or creams.
