7 Advantages of Minimally Invasive Implant TreatmentDec 16, 2020
- Less pain and swelling
- Dramatic reduction in chair time
- Reduced chance of infection or side effects of procedures
- Increased comfort and satisfaction by patients
- Increased critical confidence in complex cases
- Reduced cost of treatment due to minimization of bone graft requirements
- Healthy peri-implant outcomes and long-term safety
The minimally invasive flapless technique removes pain, swelling and post-operative pain for the patient. A happy patient is a referring patient.
There are many ways a minimally invasive approach reduces our needed chair time. First, there is no need for impressions or scans to fabricate a surgical stent and yet we have the ability to perform the osteotomy in a precise and guided manner. Second, in most cases there is no need for a flap which means no need to place sutures at the end of the implant placement. Third, we don’t have to uncover an implant after healing. And last, we don’t or will rarely have to manage peri-implantitis.
The human mouth is home to 6 billion bacteria and 700 different strains. Some good some not so good. The comorbidities of the adult population in the United States are increasing and patient’s health risks abound. Minimally invasive techniques significantly reduced the risk of the introduction of detrimental bacteria into the bloodstream causing post-operative infections. With the public health demand revaluation of routine prescription antibiotic prophylaxis in dental implant placement reducing the need to open a large surgical site could perhaps eliminate the need for antibiotics.
The design of the MagiCore Implant makes it ideal for use in treating complex cases. The MC implant offers versatility in placement orientation, can be used in cases with limited occlusal clearance, and can be used when considering either fixed or removable restorative options. Associated with a complex case is often higher cost, it is nice knowing that we have maximized the longevity of the implants using an implant and surgical technique that optimizes the health of the soft and hard tissue.
The minimally invasive approach made possible by the design of the MagiCore implant means in many cases there will be no need to use any additionally bone graft material to augment ridges or sinuses. This allows us to pass along dramatic savings to our patients as we know the graft materials are quite costly.
The design of MagiCore implants result in normal sulcus depths, complete connective tissue adhesion and almost no gingival recession or infection around the implant. Since there is no microgap there is no change in adhesion site of the junctional epithelium or connective tissue which helps in the prevention of microbial infiltration. The ideal biologic width is maintained throughout the entire restoration workflow.
Specifically developed and optimized for minimally invasive implant treatment, the Magic Surgical System is a set of new surgical methods which minimizes the need for grafting regardless of bone conditions which greatly reduces damage to the patient and dramatically shortens the healing period. Unlike other systems, the IBS Magic Surgical System can tackle the most complicated cases with reduced invasiveness it is a well-documented, easy-to-apply system that dentists of all experience levels can use to improve the value of their practice, while reducing the pain and discomfort to their patients.
