Non-Invasive Dental Implants
The microscope has introduced a non-invasive era to dental implant treatment and Dr. Shanelec was the first surgeon to use a microscope for placing dental implants. He is recognized as the leading authority on minimally invasive dental implants.
Microsurgical techniques create a surgical site with the smallest possible opening and the implant can be positioned in the exact center of the opening, precisely aligned for ideal aesthetics and function.

When a tooth is removed, the socket serves as a natural opening for implant placement. In addition, bone shavings formed during reshaping the socket to accept an implant are collected and recycled around the implant. This facilitates healing and creates a stronger implant.
Incisions in the gums, stretched stretching flaps of tissue or and stitches involved required with other methods of dental implant surgery are seldom necessary. The reduced surgical trauma of microsurgery can virtually eliminate pain, bleeding and swelling. Patients report little if any discomfort following microsurgical implant placement.
Replacing teeth with implants used to take several months and involved multiple surgeries. Dental implants placed with simultaneous surgical tooth removal can be restored with crowns in as few soon as eight weeks.
How Are They Unique?
- Non-Invasive dental implants are placed under a microscope. This makes it possible to position them more precisely for function and aesthetics.
- Non-Invasive dental implants reduce bone trauma so they can be restored sooner and their esthetic result is enhanced.
- Non-Invasive dental implants reduce gum tissue trauma so bleeding, swelling and pain are virtually eliminated.
