Objectives: over the years a device has been developed, the Magnetic Mallet, which allows a very high control and stability of the applied forces, able to perform procedures that were the safest possible for the patient and the surgeon himself. The handpiece has been designed so that different shock waves are emitted according to the type of surgery, with the possibility of inserting different inserts according to the technique / procedure that is being applied. The Magnetic Mallet can be used in different surgical procedures; Dental extractions, implant placement, implant site preparation (osseodensification), maxillary sinus lift procedures or crestal expansion procedures.
Materials and methods: In the following clinical case, the extraction of element 2.7 is conducted with the simultaneous insertion of two implant fixtures in place 2.6 and 2.7 and simultaneous regenerative therapy. The implant in site 2.6 was positioned with a traditional method, with the help of the implant motor, while the post-extraction implant in site 2.7 was inserted with the use of the Magnetic Mallet.
Results: At one week the sutures were removed and the tissues showed good healing. The patient is then placed in a maintenance and follow-up program to monitor healing after some time.
