The following animated dental implant video shows a dental implant being placed using a MIS-implants bone compression kit. Applying this technique helps improve initial stability of the implant.
The surgery starts by creating a flap from the soft tissue which exposes the jaw bone at the site where the dental implant will be placed. Next - a small diameter drill is used to penetrate the hard bone and mark the spot of the osteotomy(hole).
Compression screws are then used in sequence to make a larger and deeper hole by doing so, the screws compress the bone around the hole. This technique creates compact face surface for the implant to hold on too and give good initial stability and nigher success probability.
During the next step the dental implant is placed using a wrench attached to the fixture mount. Once the implant is in position the fixture mount is removed and a cover screw is placed on the implant. The site is then stitched up and the healing process now begins.
