Less invasive approach to dental implants allows heart patients to continue anticoagulation therapy

from DentistryIQ

Dental implant surgery procedures can conflict with the medication needs of heart patients. A less invasive approach to dental implants offers heart patients a better surgical and post-surgical experience, and allows patients to undergo the procedure without interruption of long-term anticoagulant medication. The Journal of Oral Implantology presents two cases in which a flapless surgical technique was used rather than conventional implant techniques. In the flapless technique, implants are drilled directly through the soft tissue into the bone. This study assessed the potential of the modified procedure to reduce bleeding, surgery time, postoperative pain, and soft tissue inflammation. more
