Bone condensing as a technique to prepare an implant site is demonstrated on a patient who was to undergo orthodontic treatment utilizing a palatal implant as an anchor. Based on the anatomic constraints of the palate and the desire to load the implant as axially as possible, adapted instrumentation for bone condensing is presented. Bone condensing for preparation of the implant site in soft maxillary bone avoids the risk of heat generation, and palatal implants can be placed precisely with primary stability.
