Dental implants are now considered one of the safest and most successful solutions for tooth loss ever created. However, the concept and design of implants has continued to evolve throughout the decade, and today, minimally invasive implant surgery offers a serious alternative to conventional implants.

One of the main reasons that minimally invasive implant surgery is now possible is due to the evolving designs of the implant posts themselves. Dental implantology is currently moving towards shorter implants with special connections to prevent the growth of bacteria, and this in turn helps preserve the jaw bone supporting the implant posts. Since the newer implant designs are shorter, they require less bone height to support them. This is great news for patients who may not have the highest quality jaw bone density anyway, since fewer bone grafts will be needed to support them. This also helps to make the procedure as a whole less invasive and less complicated.

What are the advantages of minimally invasive implant surgery?

An increasing number of medical and dental professionals are switching to minimally-invasive procedures wherever possible so that patients can reap the benefits associated with less intrusive surgery.

Some of the most commonly-cited advantages of choosing minimally invasive implant surgery include the following:

Improved accuracy

As with any surgical procedure, accuracy is of the upmost importance. Failing to take adequate care can result in pain, failure of the dental implant, nerve damage and more. Cutting edge technology helps to make minimally invasive dental implant surgery extremely precise and this helps to minimize any risks associated with the procedure such as damaged nerves.

Less time in the chair

Minimally invasive dental implants are both planned and implanted using cutting-edge computer technology. This enables greater precision and accuracy and ultimately reduces the length of the procedure, meaning that you will spend less time in the dentist’s chair.

Less post-operative discomfort

While you will be given anesthetic to prevent you from feeling any pain during your procedure some post-operative discomfort can usually be expected. However, the technology used in minimally invasive dental implant surgery helps your surgeon to perform the implantation process with less manipulation of the gum tissue and less bone exposure. This will in turn reduce the post-operative discomfort you might feel with standard dental implants.

Faster recovery

Since the entire procedure creates less trauma to your body, you will be able to heal much more quickly than you would from conventional implant surgery. This can be particularly beneficial for patients who are unable to take much time off of work.
