If you are considering dental implants, then you need to look closer at the methods used to perform this procedure. Unlike most dental implant specialists, Dr. Kissel uses microsurgery techniques that make the surgery and recovery time easier and faster.

Advanced Technology

Dr. Kissel is an expert in the use of dental implant microsurgical techniques. In fact, Dr. Kissel was selected as one of several periodontists who continuously trained for almost a decade under the father of microsurgery, Dr. Dennis Shanelec. This method of placing implants is performed under a highly specialized and powerful microscope, using micro-instruments. Consequently, Dr. Kissel is able to make smaller incisions without stitches compared to the larger, more painful incisions of traditional dental implant surgery.

The Results of Dental Implant Microsurgery

Microsurgery allows Dr. Kissel to operate without causing major incisions and trauma to sensitive tissue, muscles, and nerves. As a result, your dental implant microsurgery procedure will be more comfortable and you will have a faster recovery time. Additionally, because Dr. Kissel only makes small incisions with micro-instruments, your surrounding gum tissue will appear normal after surgery. Most importantly, this also ensures great long-term success.

The SMILE Technique: The Pinnacle of Dental Implant Microsurgery

The SMILE Technique or Simplified Microsurgical Implant Lifelike Esthetics (SMILE) is an advanced implant treatment provided by Dr. Kissel. This technique is the next step in the evolution of dental implants. This, of course, can only be achieved through the use of advanced dental implant microsurgical procedures. 

Careful Planning

However, before the actual surgical procedure, everything is planned virtually using a 3-dimensional computer model of a patient’s mouth (i.e. jawbone, teeth, blood vessels, bite). Using this model, the image can be magnified and the implant placed in the best possible position to ensure an optimal long-term result. Following that, a 3-dimensional printer is used to create a guide (retainer) that will guide Dr. Kissel during the implant placement. The guide is customized for each patient by Dr. Kissel himself to assist him in gaining the most accuracy.

The Significance of Implant Accuracy

The accuracy of this dental implant microsurgical technique ensures that you will avoid any issues with Peri-Implantitis which is a common complication that affects dental implant patients. This condition results in bone loss around the implant which occurs mainly because the implant placement was not planned correctly. 

Dr. Kissel, on the other hand, carefully evaluates the factors related to your specific situation which includes analyzing the structures around the implant (bone and gums). If needed these surrounding structures may be treated to avoid future complications. These steps are necessary to create an environment for success and greatly limit the risk of Peri-Implantitis. 

This sophisticated dental implant procedure notably increases precision, reduces trauma to the tissues, decreases healing time, and improves the aesthetic results. Most importantly, with microsurgery, you will significantly increase your chances of having a successful implant that will last you a lifetime.
