Can Dental Implant Surgery Be Painless, Drill-Less, And Flap-Less?
Does the term “dental implant surgery” send chills up your spine? Do you cringe at the sound of a dental drill? Is it all the above and you’re at a loss for what to do to regain your smile after tooth loss? Then Dr Kaveh Kanani’s painless, drill-less, and flap-less dental implant surgery could be for you.
Dr Kanani has been practicing his minimally invasive approach to dental implants surgery for several years now. It’s so painless and his patients are experiencing faster recovery times. In fact, some patients have admitted they’d choose dental implant surgery over a root canal. Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not, and, it’s much more efficient and cost-effective than the traditional form of dental implant surgery. Here’s why.
No drills. No pain. No flaps. It’s called Bone Expansion
The typical way of doing dental implant surgery would involve at least two surgeries. This depends on how severe the patient’s bone atrophy is as a result of tooth loss. First, the doctor would have to create a flap. What does this mean? Basically, the patient’s gum is cut open and a flap is pulled back to expose the bone. Then, the doctor would take his or her scary-sounding drill and drill into the tooth to make room for the implant. But what does this do? Essentially, by drilling into the bone you’re drilling out other valuable parts of the bone. This is counterproductive because what you really want to do is salvage as much of the original bone as possible. This is because you want to avoid having to undergo block bone graft surgery at all costs.
Block bone graft surgery occurs when you take a portion of bone from elsewhere in the patient’s body or a cadaver’s body. Then, you use to insert this bone into the patient’s jaw to create more support for the new tooth. Can you say, “yikes?” It’s best to avoid having to do this surgery when you can because it’s painful and costly.
But this isn’t the case anymore, at least not for Dr. Kanani. Through his method called bone expansion, he can simply expand the existing bone to make room for the implant. No drills, no flaps, no pain.
But how does it work?
Dr. Kanani has discovered a way to condense the outer bone into a thicker wall, creating more support for the implant. Dr. Kanani then places the implant into the newly made gap in the jaw and sutures it closed. The patient then recovers for approximately four to five months. Does four to five months sound too long? Compare that to the year-and-a-half it could take to recover from traditional dental implant surgery. That’s like over a year without enjoying a tub of popcorn at the movie theater.
What are the advantages to painless, drill-less, and flap-less dental implants?
The advantages are kind of in the name of the technique. But, to give you a better idea of the advantages of this technique, read on.
It’s Minimally Invasive
The less invasive, the better. Trust us, unless you’re someone who likes sharp buzzing drills entering your jawbone, the less invasive, the better. There’s no need to cut into the gums or drill unnecessary holes in your bone to regain the smile you deserve. That might have been the only option you had more than five years ago, but times have changed. Technology has also improved, and Dr. Kanani is at the forefront of these innovations.
It Takes Less Time
Like we mentioned above, it could sometimes take up to a year to recover from traditional dental implant surgery. This is because the old type of surgery would usually require at least two surgeries. And that’s if you’re lucky and your bone atrophy isn’t severe. However, Dr. Kanani’s flap-less, drill-less, and painless method is done all in one day. His procedure also usually lasts no more than 40 minutes to an hour. The patient comes back in four to five months and the final crown is placed on the implant. In sports, you’ll often hear fans chanting “be aggressive, be aggressive.” That’s not the case for dental implant surgery.
It’s Less Expensive
Dr. Kanani’s new flap-less, drill-less, and painless bone extension method will typically only run you approximately $799.This is unheard of when it comes to dental implant surgery. Most of the time, dental implant surgeries will run up a medical bill of close to $3,000. If you need a bone block graft surgery, you could pay an additional $3,000 to $4,000.
Patients Recover Faster
Patients are experiencing much quicker recovery times with Dr. Kanani’s new dental implant surgery method. Plus, because there’s less pain during the actual procedure, the healing response from patients is often more positive. In addition to his painless, drill-less, and flap-less method, Dr. Kanani uses a special laser therapy after the procedure. This laser therapy method speeds up the healing process and reduces pain and swelling right after surgery. Don’t worry about dressing like a celebrity in disguise when you take a trip to Whole Foods after your dental implant surgery.
