Are there benefits to the one-stage technique?
The main advantages of the one-stage technique are the preservation of the dental papillae and the timely formation of a gingival sulcus during the integration of the implant. With the one-stage technique, there is no need for surgery at the time of final abutment placement. This eliminates the need for anesthesia and sutures. However, with the use of the one-stage technique, particular attention must be paid to avoid movement of the integrating implant by the tongue, a bolus of food or a removable prosthesis.
