Conventional Implants

Goto section on Dental Implants Promotions

With today's advancements in dental implant and bonegrafting techniques, materials and technologies, almost anyone with missing teeth can now have dental implant treatments done. Conventional implants techniques have had good long-standing success rates.
Also due to new developments in implant technologies and techniques, immediate implants and immediate loaded implants are now possible that can dramatically shorten treatment.
Conventional implants are applicable to almost anyone who is looking to replace one, multiple, all missing teeth with a permanent restoration solution.

Conventional Dental Implants Procedure

Conventional dental implants procedures refers to standard dental implant process that are done in 2 to 3 phases:

bracesmetal
  • 1. Tooth extraction (if required)
  • 2. Implant post placement
  • 3. Make and Fit Prosthetics on implant

With the conventional implants process, a period of healing/monitoring time is left for each of the above phases before proceeding to the next step between phase 1, 2 and 3. The conventional dental implant processes is normally done over 2 to 3 trips depending on whether teeth is first removed back home with an osseointegration time period of about 2 months or more. Some form of provisional tempories (such as partial denture, full denture or temporary bridge) may be worn during the healing phase so that the individual is with teeth at all times.

Why Conventional Dental Implant Processes

  • 1. Conventional implant processes is an established dental implant process with very high success rates and good historical case studies.
  • 2. Individuals with varying bone quality and bone conditions are able to have dental implants treatments. Whereas good immediate implants and immediate loaded implants will required adequate bone support before the dental implant process is recommended to them.

The implant procedure is the same whether one or all teeth are missing. Below outlines what you may expect during dental implant treatment:

  • 1. First evaluation and x-ray
    • • A panoramic x-ray and oral examination is done to determine implant site and bone condition
  • 2. Implant site preparation
    • • The gum tissue is opened to expose the bone area where the implant will be placed
    • • In situations where there is insufficient bone structure, bone grafting may be a recommended procedure
    • • Once healthy bone material has been established, the implant is ready to be put into place
  • 3. Placing the Implant
    • • After the bone has been prepared, the implant is embedded and the tissue is sutured
  • 4. Healing Process - Osseointegration
    • • The implant is left to integrate and heal with the jaw bone
    • • The sutures are typically removed seven to fourteen days after surgery
  • 5. Attaching the Abutment or metal bar/ball
    • • When the gum tissue is ready, a special abutment or metal bar/ball is attached to the implant
    • • If crowns or bridges are opted, an abutment is placed and this provides the support for the new crown or bridge. Today's technologies often include the abutments attached to the implant post.
    • • If overdentures are opted, the metal bar/ball is placed and is the the clip used to securely retend the set of new overdentures
  • 6. Placing the Crown/Bridge or Overdenture
    • • A fter impressions are taken, the crown/bridge or overdenture is made
    • • If crowns or bridges are opted, it is then fixed over the post and cemented or screwed on.
    • • If overdentures are opted, they are simply snapped onto the metal bars or balls

Recovery Expectations

Following placement of the artificial roots in the jaw, the bone may be sore and the surrounding gums tender and swollen. Patients are, however, able to go about their normal daily activities a day after surgery avoiding any rigorous physical exercises or activities.
