Traditionally, the procedure of implant placement requires a surgical periosteal flap to be raised. In a percentage of implant cases, there is no need for flap surgery for implant placement, or for a follow-up surgical procedure for abutment connection. In this clinical investigation, 20 maxillary and mandibular implants were placed in seven adult male patients. The sites for implant placement were prepared according to an alternative surgical technique without raising a surgical flap. Patients… Expand
Buccal bone augmentation around immediate implants with and without flap elevation: a modified approach.
Data from this study showed that immediate implants with and without a mucoperiosteal flap elevation can be successfully used even in the presence of bone defects requiring augmentation procedures. Expand
Comparison between flapless and flap dental implant surgery: A clinical and radiographic study
The flapless implant surgery could offer advantages over the classic protocol and should have the potential to increase the patients’ acceptance of the procedure. Expand
An insight into flapless implant placement technique
This article reviews one approach of implant placement with this requirement in mind, i.e. the placement of implants without the elevation of a mucoperiosteal flap, or so called flapless implant surgery. Expand
Flapless Surgery Followed by Immediate Loading of Implant: A Blissful Combination of New Era.
A simple procedure of replacing a missing tooth by flapless surgery followed by immediate loading of the implant is described, which reduces treatment time and leads to enhanced esthetic outcomes. Expand

Based on pre- or intraoperative decision-making, patients eligible for FL surgery can benefit from a less straining procedure without affecting the high success rate of dental implant surgery. Expand
Crestal Bone Changes around immediately loaded Single-piece Implants using Flap and Flapless Technique: A Radiographic Study.
It was seen that reduction of crestal bone height was seen in both flapless and with flap techniques, however, on comparison, less bone resorption was observed inFlapless technique. Expand
Outcomes of implants placed with three different flapless surgical procedures: a systematic review.
Evaluating the outcomes of flapless surgery for implants placed using either free-hand or guided (with or without 3D navigation) surgical methods found none of the identified methods has demonstrated advantages over the others. Expand
Immediate Loading of Implants Placed Into Fresh Extraction Sockets with PeriApical Lesions without Augmentation
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of immediately placed OsteoCare implants into fresh extraction sockets of maxillary central incisor teethExpand
Survival rate of one-piece dental implants placed with a flapless or flap protocol--a randomized, controlled study: 12-month results.
It was concluded that one-piece anodically oxidized surface implants, 1 year post-definitive restoration insertion, had high survival rates (100%) and stable marginal bone and probing depth levels whether a flapless or flap protocol was used for implant insertion. Expand
Evaluation of Conical Self-tapping One-piece Implants for Immediate Loading of Maxillary Overdentures
The use of the Osteocare's Midi one-piece (ball type) implants is a valid unique simple treatment modality to support maxillary overdentures and shows high success rates when proper techniques are utilized with appropriate patient selection. Expand


A 15-year study of osseointegrated implants in the treatment of the edentulous jaw.
The clinical results achieved with bridges on osseointegrated fixtures fulfill and exceed the demands set by the 1978 Harvard Conference on successful dental implantation procedures. Expand
Osseointegrated dental implants.
Endosseous implants of commercially pure titanium have been demonstrated to give success rates of more than 90 per cent over 10 years of follow-up, and may be looked upon as a routine procedure in the treatment of edentulousness. Expand
Heat caused by drilling cortical bone. Temperature measured in vivo in patients and animals.
The results of the present study indicate that temperatures measured in animal experiments are not applicable to the clinical situation where very high temperatures may arise on drilling in cortical bone, even if saline cooling is used. Expand
