A mininvasive procedure with surgical stent.
A patient was studied to replace the upper right quadrant. A surgical stent was used for minimal invasive procedure (the patient age 79, is under anticoagulant therapy).
Implant #16 was planned just next to the sinus membrane and first guided drill was used to determine the length and direction (7mm).
Versah drills were then used to elevate the sinus for 3 mm: that was done in a quite simple way and with comprehensive haptic effect: implant placed was 10mm long.
IMO, surgical planning, with surgical stent can allow easy clinical procedure with positive effect either on surgical procedure (reduction of time, anesthetic dosage and bleeding ) or on postcare follow-up (basically no swelling,no pain,no bleeding, no sutures).
Versah drill, can be used to quickly and reliably solve sinus elevation for 3-4 mm, allowing the use of longer implant.
