DHI, sapphire, these are tools and techniques, there is none better. It’s like saying what’s better a Phillips screwdriver or flathead? Whatever is needed for the situation is best.

The tools utilized are only as good as the skill of the surgeon using them.

Go for whatever your doctor is consistently getting good results with. In many cases several techniques may be used in the same setting. I, for example, like the Sapphire blades and have been using them for more than 5 years. However, I do a stick and place in almost most procedures. I leave around 50-100 grafts at the end for “icing the cake” and going into areas that I feel may need more emphasis. This is usually made through visual inspection but also based on what the techs would also see during the implantation process. in some cases I do all sites before extracting even.
