Implants: advantages and new technologies

by Wildsmile

Health and oral aesthetics are the cover letter to which many people appeal. This has made the technology to perfect the classic as always: the dental implant.

A dental implant is a metal element that connects to a crown and replaces a tooth that was originally there. In this case, the metal part is integrated into the mandibular bone part, thereby laying the groundwork for the person to make use of the functional part of the crown.

Some people do not adapt to implants, at least at the beginning, because they find them uncomfortable or because they cause them nausea. However, implants have become the option par excellence in dental prostheses because of their practicality, low risk of producing oral diseases and because they do not need to wear the teeth adjacent to it to place it.

Today there are several modalities of dental implants of which we will be telling you the continuation.

1. Flapless – implants without surgery

This revolution in the world of implantology stands out for not requiring any surgery for placement. This makes the intervention time reduced and the postoperative period much easier.

The only thing that is done on the gum is a four millimetres circular incision with the purpose of making space to position the implant. The implant is placed with the help of guides, which allows a perfect and safe procedure.

There are no sutures and the postoperative discomfort is minimal.

If the patient's bone is not enough for this option, there are alternatives that consist of plasma grafts with fibrin or artificial bone.

2. 4D Implants

The most amazing thing about this new technique is the speed with which everything happens. The damaged part is removed and then the implant is placed. As simple as that.

The intervention is simulated through a computer. The data offered by the tomography is used to recreate the operation step by step. What is planned in the specialized software, is passed to a 3D printer, therefore guaranteeing absolute precision for the surgeon to operate safely.

Since the computer allows the implant to be directed to the exact place where it will go, the problems of lack of bone, hypertension or diabetes do not interfere with its placement.

3. Advantages of dental implants

Traditional dental implants already had the advantages of preventing the loss of bone mass and of being safer due, precisely, to fuse the bone. These new versions that do not need bone to be implanted, continue to add advantages to the option preferred by patients and dentists:

·         Maximum durability

·         Maximum fixation

·         Without pain

·         Short and discomfort postoperative

·         Substantial improvement in the quality of life

·         Optimal chewing

We must emphasize that the investment required by an implant is much greater than that of a removable prosthesis, but the durability and comfort they provide make every penny worth. In addition, the probability that they need to be replaced over time are minimal.

Bruxism consists in the action of grinding the teeth or of clenching the upper teeth against the lower ones in a strong and insistent way to make a forward and backward movement. Most of the time it is carried out unconsciously.

Removable Dental Prosthesis: definition, manufacture and hygiene

The removable prosthesis is a dental restoration treatment that allows it to be removed from the mouth at will. Its purpose is to replace one or more dental pieces that have had to be removed.
