minimally invasive method of implantation (MIMI) differs considerably
from the classical implantology method (CIM) in organizational time lapses
and the prosthetic concept.
rule, with MIMI at first no buildup of bone is needed in order to perform
an implantation minimally invasively. Horizontal bone availability (width)
of 3 mm and a vertical (height) of 6-8 mm suffices. At the first session,
at which no flapping open of the mucosa is necessary, the drill hole is
done directly through the gums (transgingivally) and has a diameter of
no more than 70 percent of volume of the later implant threading.
Immediately following that, i.e., in the first session, a one-piece
implant - so including the implant head is inserted (bloodlessly) into the bone.
Consequently, when using MIMI, implantation is done after just a few minutes (in only one
session!) and the tooth replacement can often be prepared and implemented
2 to 12 days after implantation.
regard, MIMI differs from the classical implant procedure in a few
one OP appointment - no incisions, no flapping open, no sutured wounds.
treatment usually within a few days to two weeks (exception: single-rooted
individual front tooth implants).
