Today the keywords to success in implantology have become: security, predictability, quality, economy and the short duration of treatment. It is in relation to these aspects of implantology that fits the speech of FGIU technique. It is minimally invasive so safe for the patient, predictable if you follow the recommended protocol, very economic and able to economize from two to four weeks compared to the timing of a standards implant prosthetic treatment.
From this point of view, the use of this technique join the monophasic technique to the biphasic technique, in which, waited the time for osseointegration, passes directly to the preliminary impression taking to build the custom impression tray and then continue with the next phases prosthetic.
Even in implantology biphasic with FGIU it begins the prosthetic phase on the day of implant exposure with the preliminary impression taking. If we explain the benefits of this technique it is worth noting also the limits.
First, as already mentioned, the operator must be skilled and preferably also the same that performed the first surgery. It is also not indicated in all areas of implantology. Its application field is the biphasic (two stage) implantology without context guided bone regeneration that involves the use of non-resorbable barrier membranes. In view of what has been shown in this work, it is concluded that the evolution in the implantology passes certainly through the use of techniques and principals valid and standardized, in this context, the FGIU technique seems to possess these requirements, then when there is the indication, it would be useful to use it.
