Non-incision method is inserting dental implant into alveolar bone by making a hole instead of gum incision. Accordingly the procedure is short and simple.
In order to place implant alveolar bone, the gum needs to be incised and the bone needs to be removed. This procedure causes bleeding and pain due to gum incision. Non-incision method is to inserting dental implant without gum incision. As a result, the social lives of patients are not affected from the operation at all so that satisfaction is very high.
Non-incision method is inserting dental implant into alveolar bone by making a hole instead of gum incision. It is a simple procedure and takes short time. However, it can be performed only to patients who have enough alveolar bone mass. 3D CT is required to check exact condition of alveolar bone.
Advantages of Non-Incision Method
Gum does not need to be incised under the Non-incision implant. So it takes less time and causes less bleeding and swelling than existing dental implant. As there isn’t much exposure to blood vessels, the danger of bacterial infection is low and recovery is fast. In addition, the loss of alveolar bone is little so patients can get a better result after the treatment. Gingiva line can be maintained without much damage because the contraction of the gum around teeth is little. More than anything else, patients need to receive the treatment from an experienced professional. It requires high level of skills because non-incision implant does not allow dentists to see the location where a dental implant is performed
Examine the amount and density of gum bones where the tooth was lost through Panorama and 3D CT and determine the place where dental implant can be placed.
Make a whole on the gum where the procedure will be performed
Insert dental implant inside the whole
The second operation is performed to expose the upper part of the implant when the implant is firmly fixed in the gum.
Placing prosthetic appliance on top of the inserted implant for the final step.
1.When is Non-incision implant advisable?
Enough alveolar bone mass and density are required for patients to receive Non-incision implant without alveolar bone grafting. In general, Non-incision implant is available for patients like those who have a recent loss of front teeth. Also patients who experience tooth extraction with less damaged alveolar bone from gum disease or by dental decay can receive the operation.
2.. I received bone grafting as required. Can I receive Non-incision implant on that?
Bone grafting is performed when the alveolar bone’s condition is not in a good condition. Dental implant should be performed after checking the exact condition of the grafted bone. Receiving Non-incision implant could be inappropriate for patients if they need an additional bone grafting.
3. There are many advantages in Non-incision implant. But why is it less popular?
Non-incision implant generates less bleeding and pain and patients get recovered quickly. However, dental implant could fail when implant is performed without checking the condition of alveolar bone or the bone remained inside gum. So dentists recommend patients relatively safer operation. It is crucial for patients to get examined on the condition of alveolar bone.
