In dentistry, punching is a synonym for a number of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Implants can be exposed using punching techniques. At this point, we would like to show you a video clip in which implants are exposed using punching methods. In the video "Punch" you see a female patient who has lost two teeth in an accident.

An implant is supposed to be inserted into the upper jaw. Punching allows the dentist to begin work on the implants by exposing them. The lips are protected by a rubber cuff. The mucosa does not have to be cut open during punching, as only a small hole the size of the implant needs to be punched. The patient experiences less pain in comparison to a tooth extraction.

After punching, the implant drill hole is refurbished using various instruments. This step may appear simple, but it requires considerable experience on behalf of the implantologist. During this step he evaluates bone quality. Now the actual implant is inserted. You can see that the insertion rod is attached at the gums and thus stands out from the gums.

The insertion rod is removed and only the implant remains in the bone. Then the gum former, or gingiva former, is inserted, there will be more about that in the video entitled "Gingiva Former". The provisional solution is reinserted into the patient’s mouth until the final treatment is carried out.
