Dental Implant – Types of Dental Implants (Step by Step)

By | February 28, 2018

How many implants are needed?

Missing more teeth is considered if an implant is required for each new tooth or whether a bridge is to be manufactured. This is due, among other things, to the availability of bone in the area, the quality of the bone whose implants can be placed in a way that gives an impression of good results, the load that the bridge will be exposed to biting and chewing, etc. This is assessed after an X-ray examination and a thorough analysis of the entire bit. One must take into account all the teeth in their mouths, their current condition and their potential customers.

Since all the teeth are missing in a jaw, 4-6 implants usually work in the lower jaw. The upper jaw is preferably 6 because the quality of the leg is usually worse than the lower jaw. The number of implants to be inserted into a jaw evaluated on how implants can be placed in the leg to get the best grip and in relation to the next tooth placement.

One tries to insert as long as implants as possible. Not uncommon, old prostheses need to be adjusted or maybe even. be reworked before considering how to put the teeth in the new implant source. A complete assessment of how long implants, how many and exactly how they can be placed in the leg, can never be done before at the time of operation.


Is the implant surgery painful?

An implant operation rarely causes pain. The operation is performed under local anesthesia, and then stops usually experiencing soreness of the mouth. This soreness goes after a week. Usually you get sedative medication before surgery. Complications such as infections and pain rarely occur.

How long does healing take place around an implant screw?
The mucous membrane generally heals for 7-10 days. The implant is inserted during continuous surgery with the bone. The healing, the so-called osseointegration, means that the bone on the microscopic level grows toward the surface of the implant and anchors it more completely.

Light after implant

Osseointegration, as well as healing of e.g. bone fractures, starts after a week and is usually completed after approx. 1 year. Undergrowth undergoes different stages and the implant is very sensitive during this time to be moved from its position. A careful strain can stimulate bone remedies if done correctly. Four-month inoculation is considered necessary in the lower jaw and 6 months in the upper jaw before starting to load crowns or bridges. These intake times are currently being reviewed. Often, especially in the lower jaw, the implant can be loaded even after a week. If this is possible, it will be considered during the operation.

The different implants are often different in the design and how they are driven in the jawbone. Often they heal in the leg covered by mucous membranes. In a second operation, the implant is supplemented with an extension that perforates the mucosa. For this purpose the bridge is attached. Some implants, eg. ITI Dental Implant System is not covered by the mucosa during the injection and therefore does not require another operation. This technique, with only one operation, can also be used on other implant types. It is decided in each individual case, often depending on the circumstances, eg bone availability.

A special method has been developed where the implant has already been taken on the same day as the completed source.

Large number of brands

One can not say today which implantation method is best. The implantation system, which has been scientifically documented and the longest, is the Swedish Brånemark System®, which served as a standard for all successors. Other implant systems that are available on the Swedish market and have been used with great success are, for example. ITI Dental Implant System® and Astra Tech Implant®, Strauman®, Paragon®, Implamed®.
The crown was attached to the implant
It is in the implant attached to the toothbrush itself. The tooth can be simple or contained in a bridge and can be screwed onto the implant or cemented firmly.

If only a tooth is missing, one can make the new crown very similar to the original tooth. The more teeth that are missing and the longer the time has elapsed since the teeth were lost, the more the jawbone where the teeth previously indicated changed. This means that the implants can not be placed as the original toothpastes were put. Therefore, the new tooth bridge must also be different from the original teeth.

Necessary with good oral hygiene

The implant’s hygiene must be kept at the same high level as on your own teeth. Plaque formation, ie the accumulation of oral bacteria occurs on both the teeth and on the implants. To facilitate cleaning, the crown and bridal set are designed to allow the patient to easily access the toothbrush or other aids. Often this part of treatment follows a dental hygienist.
