Minimally Invasive Method of Implantation- the MIMI® Insertion Protocol
Based on current findings on bone physiology, the MIMI® insertion protocol is a minimally invasive dental implantation procedure without incisions and sutures. In fact, the dogma of "healing by resting" has been refuted. As a matter of fact, bone needs loading, which increases bone mass, while inactivity or healing by resting causes bone mass loss. In addition, MIMI® differs from other insertion protocols in other aspects. Using CNIP-Navigation, drilling is performed at very low speed in the cortical bone and in the spongy bone, which avoids bone jaw perforation. CNIP in a sagittal/horizontal position can be compared with an endodontic treatment involving a manual preparation of the root canal, avoiding canal perforation. Like a treatment of a less dense nerve canal, for performing a cavity the Conical Triangular Drills are guided through the cortical bone (dense buccal and oral exterior walls) and allow in depth preparation of the spongy bone.
