Endosseous root form implant surgery involves a series of steps that systematically results in the placement of a dental implant. The process typically includes presurgical discussion and instructions, a soft tissue incision, preparation of the bony osteotomy site using progressively larger drills, threading (tapping) the bone when placing implants into dense bone, implant placement itself, cover screw placement, suturing when a soft tissue flap is needed, postsurgical patient instructions, and follow-up care.
Over the past 20 years there have been significant changes from the original Brånemark implant treatment protocols. Perhaps foremost has been immediate implant placement at the time of extraction which has become a viable treatment method. In addition, barrier membranes and grafting materials have been successfully used in conjunction with the immediate placement to augment extraction sockets and bony defects adjacent to immediately-placed implants.
The aim of this chapter is to compare minimally invasive implant surgery procedures with traditional surgical flap designs. Minimal access surgery, also referred to a “flapless” surgical technique, has made remarkable inroads in numerous areas in medicine.1 Laparoscopic surgery,2 robotics, ophthalmic surgery as well as use of stereotactic neurosurgery3 are just a few examples of minimally invasive medical procedures. Since their introduction, these enhancements have revolutionized the practice of surgery by decreasing morbidity, blood loss as well as the number of patient hospital stays. In some instances, these services have been found to be more cost effective than traditional approaches.
