An Implant is an artificial or an inert material that is placed to replicate the roots of the natural tooth to support a crown or fixed or removable teeth in the form of dentures.


  • In patients, who have lost all their teeth, where due to advanced bone loss, it is difficult to chew food due to inadequate retention of a denture.
  • When only few missing teeth are present, but the removable partial denture may weaken the supporting teeth and provide less chewing efficiency.
  • For single tooth replacements, where fixed partial dentures or bridges cannot be placed.
  • Patient's desire.


  • Preservation of bone-The implant holds the bone like a natural tooth thereby preventing the progress of bone loss around it.
  • Improved function -The chewing efficiency is almost 90% of the natural teeth.
  • Aesthetics-Implants provide a natural appearance of the tooth, as it acts as the tooth root over which the tooth structure is placed.
  • Stability and retention-Implants are more stable and retentive due to direct attachment of implant to the bone called as osseointegration.
  • Comfort-Implants are more comfortable to the patient as compared to any case of denture replacements.


  • Implants cannot be used in medically compromised patients who cannot undergo surgery.
  • It may require multiple visits to the dentist after implant placement and patient cooperation is must.
  • It cannot be universally placed due to anatomical limitations means in situations where there is inadequate bone remaining.



Techniques Of Implant Placement

Guided Surgery- Flapless

Flap Surgery

Guided Surgery - Flapless for Implants

It is a minimally invasive procedure which uses custom fabricated surgical guides or 3D softwares of the jaw bones where the dental implant is placed through the mucosal tissues without reflecting a flap

It is done in cases where the bone level is found satisfactory

It produces less post-operative swelling and discomfort to the patient as it is minimally invasive and involves no reflection of flap

It also causes less bone loss as compared to flap reflective procedures and better results in esthetic regions where implants are to be placed

a) Pre-operative site, c) Xray of the missing tooth, e) punch cut into the mucosa, g) drilling the hole into the bone for implant placement, h) implant screw to be placed, i) placing of the implant, k) after implant placement intro operative photo, i) abutment placed

Implant placement by flapless surgery

Flap Surgery for Implants

It involves various flap designs placed in order to permit better visualization of the bone and reduces the risk of bone perforation

It is usually done in cases of less bone levels that may need bone grafting to increase the bone level

It is an invasive procedure and may lead to swelling and post operative discomfort
