Implant replacement in the upper lateral maxillary area with Magnetic Mallet
Posted on 07.07.2022 06:34 AM By Francisco Marchesani In Implants
An implant replacement in the upper lateral maxillary area is needed in a 45-year-old female patient, ASA I, since the patient already had a failed reconstruction surgery. Bone loss is observed vertically and horizontally.
Maxillary GBR associated with maxillary split and osseodensification is performed using inserts for expansion and bone densification with the Magnetic Mallet. Then the stabilization of implants is followed with the use of a slow reabsorption collagen membrane, thus carrying out an implant replacement in the upper lateral maxillary area.
Any observations on how the surgery was performed?

Dental implants are devices that serve as false, or replacement teeth use to restore the appearance and function of your normal smile. Although implants are most commonly used to replace a single tooth, they can also function anchors for more complete restorations like dental bridges.

The proposed surgery to replace the implant in the upper lateral maxillary area sounds like a complex procedure that involves multiple steps to address the bone loss that is present both vertically and horizontally. The use of a guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedure in combination with a maxillary split and osseodensification using inserts for expansion and densification with a Magnetic Mallet is a well-established technique for addressing vertical and horizontal bone loss in the maxilla.
The use of a slow resorption collagen membrane to stabilize the implants is also a commonly used technique in implant dentistry. This type of membrane helps to maintain the space for the regenerated bone and reduces the risk of collapse of the newly regenerated bone.
It is worth noting that GBR procedures, especially when associated with maxillary splits, are technically challenging, and the outcome can be unpredictable and may have a high rate of complications. A thorough preoperative assessment, including 3D imaging and careful treatment planning, can help to increase the chances of success. Additionally, the use of osseodensification techniques like the Magnetic Mallet may be a good alternative to increase the primary stability of the implant and the predictability of the outcome.
It is also important to mention that the use of a slow resorption collagen membrane is only one option, other alternatives are available in the market such as xenografts, allografts, or biological membranes, and the choice of membrane will depend on the clinical situation, surgeon preference and protocol, and the healing characteristics of the patient.
