Dental Implant Microsurgery
The ultimate aim of dental implant microsurgery is to comfortably replace teeth, smiles and confidence, without the trauma of major incisions. The inner world of the gum tissue, bone and sockets are easily seen through a microscope without large incisions or tissue removal for visibility. As a result, a dental implant can be placed in a very small opening, just large enough to admit the implant.
Dental Implant microsurgery is done without using wide incisions that require pulling back and holding open the gum tissue, muscle and nerves for long periods of time. For this reason, it has a much lower level of pain and complications compared to conventional surgery. Dr Shanelec is committed to applying microsurgery and microscopy to every phase of dental implant and periodontal treatment.
How is Implant Microsurgery different?
- With a microscope, very small surgical openings are used
- Large incisions, stitches, and pulling back flaps of tissue is avoided
- Reduced trauma minimizes pain, swelling and bleeding
- More precise implant positioning is accomplished
- Microsurgery is a safe and proven approach using local anesthesia
