The advance of surgical techniques and modifications with respect to the surface and macrogeometry of dental implants, such as immediate and early loading, can help reduce the time of rehabilitation for the patient when excellent primary stability is the primary prerequisite. Starting from this principle, studies using a novel technique to replace bone-subtractive drilling have been developed to optimize the implant site. This new technique, called osseodensification, was developed by Dr. Salah Huwais and patented in 2012. The name of the procedure suggests the induction of a compression wave at the tip of specially designed drills at the point of contact. This case report suggests that the clinical and radiographic results obtained could support the hypothesis that a true gain in primary stability as well as a compaction grafting can be achieved by the use of this technique.
