This is due to the fact that complications can often be avoided, that the surgery is virtually bloodless, and that the tissue is protected to the maximum.
The implant is carefully and slowly inserted in the small bone cavity. First, it is inserted manually, then with a controlled torque. The patient will just feel a little bit of pressure in the bone. A source on whether the implant is anchored optimally into bone is a checking by means of a percussion sound. Should the percussion sound be bright, the implant is surrounded on all sides by bone. This can also decide on whether implants or splinted implants can be immediately loaded.
You can fit zircon ceramic preparation caps, but they are not absolutely necessary for a successful MIMI®-Flapless treatment. After the gentle implantation and cementation, they will allow for compensation of insertion divergences still in the same session.
This has always been a dream for a dentist: you insert the implant. Then, the treatment is almost the same as for a natural tooth. After the impression is taken, the temporary restoration is fitted, and the first bite registration is taken. With this registration, the laboratory is informed of how the patient bites his/her teeth together (occlusion).
The dental technician also considers the stump in the impression as a natural tooth. It is cast with super hard plaster. The preparation margin can be done under hygienic conditions and supra-gingivally (over the gingiva margin). External micro-movements are to be excluded through (preferably) splinted temporary restorations. Participation of the patient is absolutely necessary. The patient should eat soft food without sharp edges. He/she should practice good oral hygiene and eventually rinse his/her mouth with chlorhexidine.
In this case, only four days after the MIMI®-Flapless implantation, the framework was fitted. The framework can also consist of a metal alloy, but it should be the miniature form of the later prosthodontic restoration.
After a second bite registration with the passive-fitted framework on the implants (here: Champions®), the final prosthodontic restoration was fitted with standard glass ionomer base cement four days later. Excessive occlusal cusp-fissure reliefs (which an adolescent can have) should be avoided because of increased side movements and shear forces.
In current medicine, there are a lot of possibilities, but not everything is necessary and reasonable!
