Minimally Invasive Implant Surgery

No More Fear For Implant Surgery

The traditional method of implant surgery required making major incisions and flaps on the gums, which resulted in higher chances of feeling severe pain after surgery. Significant reduction in surgical pain could be achieved by incision-free surgery which is only possible from utilizing cutting-edge technology. Some of the benefits that you can get from incision-free surgery include, but not limited to:

  • Minimal pain during and after the surgery
  • Almost no bleeding during the surgery
  • None or mild post-op swelling
  • No bone resorption because there is no disruption of blood supply
  • Much lower risk of infection than conventional procedure
  • No gagging or breathing problem during surgery due to lack of simultaneous irrigation
  • Minimal noise or vibration due its innovative low-speed drilling
  • Almost impossible to make damages to nerves or other important anatomic structures

Virtual planning

Since surgeons had no other way of knowing the exact internal oral anatomy of the patient with conventional dental x-rays, they could not help but cut the gums to secure necessary visibility of the bone, and access the implant site. However, with the cutting edge technology we are now able to provide implant surgeries with minimal cutting on your gums.

As you see in the following video, virtual planning is made on a planning software that combines 3D CBCT xays and 3D intraoral scan. The surgeon can determine ideal location and size of the implants based on thess very accurate data to get rid of possibility of damaging important anatomic structures like a big nerves or blood vessels.

Incision-free surgery

General-Incision vs. Minimal-Incision SurgerySomething that is counter-intuitive to many people is that the most pain and discomfort from implant surgery is a result of the cuts on the gums, NOT from the bone.

Thus, decreasing in the length of incision line will bring much less pain and discomfort. Also, while an incision is made to detach the gum tissue away from the underlying bone, preparing access holes for implant placement doesn’t require that step. This also make difference in terms of pain and swelling.

Incision usually cause disruption of blood supply by cutting blood vessels so healing capacity of the tissue can be compromised as opposed to non-incision procedures.

Safe surgery

Our incision-free, minimally invasive implant surgery is one of the most conservative approaches to ensure that there is virtually no-pain, quick healing, no-swelling, and maximum safety for the patient. It is safe even for some medically compromised patients, such those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.

Computer-generated surgical guide

The planned position of the implants are exactly transferred to the surgical site by utilizing a computer-generated surgical guide. This guide is designed according the planned implants and fabricated by 3D printing. Since this CAD/CAM is so accurate so that the exact position of the implants are transferred to the desired site without an error.
