Abstract

In the past, complex rehabilitations, such as the rehabilitation of an entire arch with a prosthesis on implants, were reserved for the few patients who presented an optimal state of health as the interventions were long and traumatic. Nowadays, the use of devices such as the Magnetic Mallet and the laser allows us to perform the same interventions in less time and in a minimally invasive way. The case report we present shows how a fragile patient, subjected to the insertion of eight implants on the same day, had a positive response, thanks to the use of a Magnetic Mallet to prepare the implant sites, the application of the photodynamic therapy without dye (diode laser + hydrogen peroxide) to decontaminate the post-extraction alveoli and the use of an erbium laser to induce more bone bleeding and promote healing. The implants were then loaded in 48 h with a Toronto-type temporary total prosthesis. The patient had a pain-free and complication-free outcome. It is interesting to note how technological development, aimed at reducing the morbidity of surgery, makes it possible to perform almost all surgical therapies, even the most advanced, on any patient, regardless of general health conditions.
