Immediate loading of dental implants using flapless technique with electric welding
Medical University 'ALDENT', Department of Implantology, Tirana, Albania
Keywords: Implant; Flapless Implantation; Electric Welding; Immediate Implant Loading
Purpose: to illustrate the implant-prosthetic rehabilitation using immediate loading under Hapless technique. This is carried out by creating an immobility state of implants, which means a maximum tolerance of about 150 μm movement during the healing phase. Material and Methods: In order to create the stability of implants and realization of immediate load of coalesced implants with a titanium rod through intraoral welding. In this way, we realized a structure with large surface on which occlusal forces operate without causing any unwanted movement of implants. This approach, in indicated situation, favours integration of fixed implants in bone, defining the success in distant time of the implant-prosthetic rehabilitation. Results and Conclusions: The presented method offers significant advantages with biomechanical functional unit that is achieved, because surgical proceeding is minimally invasive, a fracture of implant composition is avoided, bone is subjected to overload and it is possible to achieve a real and immediate loading in the same session of the implantation.
