Dental implant technology
Dental implantation is one of the few procedures that can not only visually restore the integrity of the dentition, but also restore its functionality. During the procedure, an artificial element imitating the root of the tooth is implanted into the bone tissue of the jaw, after which a crown is fixed on it, which can be made of ceramic, plastic, cermet or any other material, depending on the wishes of the client. The One-to-One Clinic invites you to use the dental implant service and regain a beautiful and confident smile.
Why do dentists recommend dental implants?
Dental implants have a huge range of benefits. The main advantages of the procedure are:
Aesthetics – depending on the selected material, implants may not differ from real teeth. In addition, they are completely not felt and do not cause a person discomfort.
Safety – when installing an implant, it is not necessary to grind adjacent teeth, so that they do not deteriorate over time. In addition, the technology of implantation avoids the development of caries.
Long service life – subject to the recommendations of the doctor and regular visits to the dentist, the service life of artificial teeth is 25 years or more.
Preservation of load on the bone – after tooth extraction, the bone tissue becomes thinner and deformed over time, as a result of which the facial features may be distorted. The implant creates the necessary load on the bone tissue, supports blood circulation and tissue nutrition.
How is the implantation procedure in the clinic “One to One”
The first stage of dental implantation is a thorough diagnosis. An experienced dentist examines the patient’s oral cavity, takes a panoramic picture of the jaw, if necessary, reorganizes, and only then, together with the orthopedic surgeon, begins to draw up a plan for further treatment. The restoration of the elements of the dentition can occur in one or two stages.
The implantation procedure itself takes about 15 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. A maxillofacial surgeon-dentist makes a small incision on the gingival mucosa to prepare the bone for the installation of an artificial root. After that, the implant itself is attached to the bone canal, and the incision is sutured. The process of bone and implant fusion lasts from 3 to 6 months. During this time, the patient does not experience any discomfort.
In the case of applying the one-stage technique, the prosthesis is installed immediately after implantation into the bone tissue. This method is relevant in the following situations:
if the initial stabilization of the implant is enough to carry out the further procedure;
if it is possible to make accurate preparation of the edges of the wound in the area of the implant;
with good interocclusal and interalveolar height and the required size of bone tissue.
In this case, after an incision, an implant is implanted in the gum, which does not have a supragingival part. After this, the gum is sutured, and the artificial root is completely isolated. After a certain time, the gum is cut again, the plug is removed from the implant and a special shaper is installed, which should form a bed for the new tooth. This procedure takes about 30 minutes. The healing process after installing the shaper lasts a week. At the last stage, a new tooth is created that will rest on the implant.
Two-stage implantation from 3 to 6 months
Two-stage implantation from 3 to 6 months for successful implant survival
Observation of the patient after the implantation procedure
After the implantation procedure, the patient needs to visit the dentist regularly to assess the general condition of the implants. This approach allows you to avoid inflammatory processes and make sure that the new tooth copes with its load. Usually, the first visit to the doctor occurs a week after the procedure, then the specialist will need to appear after 3-6 months. It is imperative to take annual x-rays of the teeth. Thus, the dentist will be able to assess the state of bone tissue.
