Worldwide 13.5 million dental implant procedures are performed each year, 95% of which by “free hand” surgery. Clinical complications arise
from implants not being positioned correctly, wrong angulation, or harming the nerve structures. This can lead to impairment of functionality, of prosthodontic rehabilitation, poor esthetics, or even loss of the implant.

mininavident has developed an extremely miniaturized navigation system, which is directly fitted to the surgical handpiece, and which guides the drill in real-time and in 3D to the correct implant position and angle using a ceramic dual-mode-marker and proprietary algorithms.

The DENACAM system is compatible to most 3D implant planning softwares, based on digital Cone Beam CT data to deliver enhanced visualization and increased accuracy for dental implant procedures.
