Dental implantology is the implanting, in the maxillary bone, of fixed prostheses in the place of missing teeth or to replace diseased teeth.


Traditional dental implantology

In traditional dental implantology, we first cut the gum to access the bone and drill a hole in it, then a prosthesis is inserted. This operation must necessarily take place in a spot with abundant presence of bone, otherwise it will lack the “support” necessary for the success of the dental implant.

Though it can be successful, traditional dental implantology usually entails a long and painful healing process for the patient, who will nearly always have to treat the pain with painkillers.

Following, some of the main traits of traditional implantology:

  • Abundant cutting of the gingiva, with ensuing tissue detachment (periosteum, mucosa, muscles) from the bone
  • Resorption of the uncovered bone
  • Pain
  • Increased risk of edema, bleeding, and bruising in the post-operative phase
  • Use of high-speed burrs to drill into the bone in a very aggressive fashion, disrespectful of the biology of the tissue
  • Insertion of implants exclusively in areas where there is abundant bone
  • Reconstruction of the anatomy of the maxillary bone with grafts from other parts of the body such as hip, tibia, fibula or calvaria.
  • Months-long wait for the implants to become functional, with great physical and psychological discomfort for the patient
  • Post-operative pain sometimes difficult to keep in check
  • Slow healing of the tissues


Minimally invasive dental implantology

Minimally invasive dental implantology is a new method, studied by the specialists of IMI Clinic, which has a series of immediate advantages: it does not always require cutting and makes for a rapid healing of the tissues and bone in which the implant is inserted; procedure times are reduced, as is the need for sutures; post-operative pain is reduced or eliminated. Aside from those already mentioned, among the advantages of the minimally invasive implant technology designed by IMI Clinic, worthy of mention are:

  • Constant reconstruction of the bone to support implants at the same time as extraction
  • Preparation of the implant site with slow-rotating burrs, respecting the structure and vitality of the bone
  • Possibility of loading the implants with minor need of bone grafts or with contextual regeneration
  • Short waiting time (a few hours or a few days)
  • Complete control of the site in every detail thanks to the constant use of a surgical microscope
  • Possibility of applying the implants immediately after the extraction of the tooth, even in the presence of infections because the latter are kept in check with sophisticated decontamination techniques
  • Effective treatment of inflammations and/or infections
  • Lack of penetration of bacteria in the wound
  • Reduction or elimination of pain in the post-operative edema
  • Rapid healing of the tissues through biostimulation


IMI Clinic has developed an implantology protocol keeping in mind the important aim of the least possible invasiveness. The network was thus able to successfully create and apply a truly innovative method capable of effectively solving even extremely compromised situations.
