Flapless Implant Surgery By Dr. Rohit Yadav

Flapless implant surgery is a minimally invasive dental implant procedure that does not require the gum tissue to be cut open and reflected. This is in contrast to traditional implant surgery, which requires the gum tissue to be cut open and reflected in order to access the jawbone.

Benefits of flapless implant surgery:

  • Quicker procedure: Flapless implant surgery is typically a quicker procedure than traditional implant surgery. This is because there is no need to cut open and reflect the gum tissue.
  • Less pain and swelling: Flapless implant surgery causes less pain and swelling than traditional implant surgery. This is because there is less tissue trauma involved.
  • Faster healing time: Patients typically heal more quickly from flapless implant surgery than from traditional implant surgery.
  • Minimal bleeding: Flapless implant surgery causes minimal bleeding, which reduces the risk of infection.
    Better preservation of bone and gum tissue: Flapless implant surgery helps to preserve bone and gum tissue, which can improve the long-term success of the implant.

Who is a good candidate for flapless implant surgery?

Flapless implant surgery is a good option for many patients who are missing teeth. However, it is important to note that flapless implant surgery is not suitable for all patients.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for flapless implant surgery is to talk to your dentist.

How flapless implant surgery is performed:

Flapless implant surgery is performed using a variety of techniques, but the most common approach is to use a computer-guided surgery system. This system allows the surgeon to plan the implant placement precisely and to make a small incision in the gum tissue at the exact location where the implant will be placed.

The surgeon then uses a series of drills to create a hole in the jawbone and to place the implant. Once the implant is in place, the surgeon closes the incision with a few sutures.


Q: What are the risks associated with flapless implant surgery?

A: The risks associated with flapless implant surgery are similar to the risks associated with traditional implant surgery. These risks include infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. However, with proper planning and execution, the risks of flapless implant surgery are very low.

Q: How long do flapless implants last?

A: Flapless implants can last for many years, just like traditional implants. However, the lifespan of flapless implants will depend on a number of factors, including the patient’s overall health, oral hygiene habits, and the type of implant used.

Q: How much does flapless implant surgery cost?

A: The cost of flapless implant surgery will vary depending on the number of implants needed, the type of implant used, and the surgeon’s fees. However, flapless implant surgery is typically more expensive than traditional implant surgery due to the increased cost of materials and labor.
