Purpose: The aim was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a computed tomography-guided surgery implant placement with a flapless technique and immediate functional loading in an American Society of Anesthesiology-III patient.

Her hopeless teeth were extracted and a restorative evaluation was provided as a prosthetic reference. The surgical procedure was based on the flapless technique that let us to use local anesthesia. The authors used an All-on-4 concept restoration for maxilla and conventional fixed prosthesis procedures for jaw rehabilitation.

Abstract

Purpose: The aim was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a computed tomography-guided surgery implant placement with a flapless technique and immediate functional loading in an American Society of Anesthesiology-III patient. Methods: This technical note involved a 64-year-old American Society of Anesthesiology-III patient. Her hopeless teeth were extracted and a restorative evaluation was provided as a prosthetic reference. The surgical procedure was based on the flapless technique that let us to use local anesthesia. The authors used an All-on-4 concept restoration for maxilla and conventional fixed prosthesis procedures for jaw rehabilitation. The authors placed 4 tilted implants in the upper maxilla and 6 right implants in the jaw. Implants were loaded with a provisional prosthesis on the same day of surgery. Five months later, provisional restoration was removed; the authors placed into the ceramic crowns 2 Procera Implant Bridge (Nobel Biocare) frameworks, developed through computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing technology. Conclusions: Computed tomography-guided surgery is a minimally invasive technique that allows, through a flapless approach, safer and more predictable procedures. In this technical note, the authors achieved accurate implant placement and precise fit of restoration with natural looking appearance; this patient-oriented-treatment led to a reduced healing time with better compliance.
