Dental implant has become a common method to replace missing teeth. In case of limited amount of bone, an extended incision, large flap and bone graft or sinus augmentation are required prior to implant placement. The most common complications associated with the standard approach include swelling, pain, flap breakdown and bone loss.
Limited data concerning minimally invasive techniques have been described in the literature. Generally, such techniques involve a less-extensive incision with reduced diameter implants, or short implants and more recently, the use of computer-guided surgery for implant placement.
This presentation will discusss the advantages and disadvantages of this minimally invasive implant procedure. The techniques since tooth extraction, treatment planning, implant surgery, provisional restorations, and final prosthesis will be discussed in both partial edentulous and complete edentulous situations.
