Abstract Synopsis


Dr. Arwed Ludwig
MGK Medical and Facial Surgery Clinic, Kassel (Germany)


After loss of teeth also a loss of bone and soft tissue occur. This is the reason that in many
cases an augmentation of the jaw seems to be necessary. But many patients are afraid about
bone augmentation or invasive surgery is not possible because of the health situation of the
patient. There exist different innovative implants which allows an flapless implant insertion.
But for this minimal invasive treatments 3D-planning software and cone beam CT are mostly
necessary and also the doctor needs more experience in these techniques. Additionally if
augmentation is absolute necessary prefabricated bone block transplants or bone substitute
material could help to avoid big invasive surgery.The minimal invasive surgery for implant
insertion offers also in critical cases a rehabilitation with oral implants. The operation risk is
therefore reduced. The results and pitfalls of new minimal invasive implant insertion and jaw
reconstruction will be demonstrated and discussed.
