Mini dental implants (MDI), also called temporary anchorage device (TAD) are small titanium implants that are used mostly in orthodontic treatments or to replace missing teeth in a patient whose growth is not completed. However, some specialists use the mini implants to replace missing teeth in implant treatments as well.
Due to their small diameter, the mini implants are not considered as conventional dental implants.
