Minimally Invasive Treatment Of Posterior Maxilla
Atrophy of the alveolar ridge of the maxillary, as a result of edentulism, often cannot allow a prosthetic rehabilitation because the small residual thickness bone compromises the primary implant stability.
Achieving implant primary stability in poor-density bone is difficult when the available bone height is less than 6 mm. In the atrophic posterior maxilla, primary stability can readily be achieved with tapered implants even when the mean residual bone height is as low as 2 mm.
An original surgical technique will allow the placement of endosseous implants in the atrophic posterior maxilla in conjunction with sinus elevation without bone grafting ending in a reduce healing period with significant amount of bone formation around the implants at the sinus floor, resulting in successful restorations and eliminating the need for bone grafting.
With the help of different laser wavelength we are able to underprepare the implant bone bed and deal the soft tissues with a full decontamination of those tissues in a respectful biological way.
Thanks again to its high decontamination power they allow a total wash out of any granulation tissue remained within the socket reducing the bone turnover time and increasing at the same time bone density, implant primary stability and BIC in case of immediate post extraction implant placement.
- Place implant in an atrophic posterior maxilla flapless with no use of biomaterial.
- Avoid rotary or piezzo instrument for implant placement.
- Degranulation and decontamination of both soft and hard tissues and placement of Immediate post extractional implant in infected posterior maxilla.
