Immediate loadable one-phase implant frequently asked questions

Did you know that an immediate loadable one-phase implant has huge advantages over two-phase ones?

Teeth play a much more critical role in the healthy functioning of the human body than many would think. When it comes to the health of our teeth, it must always mean increased attention and care. Neglected teeth mean insufficient chewing ability, which can negatively affect digestion. Furthermore, inflamed gums and teeth can harm other human body organs. Teeth that are unsuitable for prosthetic care have to remove. The best solution known today for their replacement is an immediate loadable one-phase implant with a considerable advantage over two-phase implants.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a high-purity titanium alloy artificial tooth root that can perfectly replace a natural tooth root. We mention only one of its enormous advantages: the metal tooth root will not inflame, won’t cause pain, and lasts forever. And that’s just one of many benefits. Today, two different implant families and implantation methods are prevalent in Hungary. One is the conventional two-phase implant, and the other is the one-phase implant, in other words, an immediate loading implant. This writing will be mainly about the latter, but anyone interested can read more about two-phase implants here.

What do the words one-phase mean?
As its name implies, the immediate loadable one-phase implant is implantable in a single phase. Unlike two-phase implants, which take two different occasions, 4-6 months can elapse between each time. It is a significant advantage that the implant placement takes place in a single phase, in a single day, and the long-term temporary denture is also ready in 5 working days. That means less time and less inconvenience, especially for foreign patients. A significant positive feature of the one-phase implant is that – in contrast to the two-phase implant – it consists of a single piece, from which additional benefits derive.

What does immediate loadability mean?
Another advantage of this implant family is that it is loadable immediately after implantation. In practice, it is suitable for dentures to be attached to them immediately after implantation. Therefore, a single-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation can be completed in 5-6 working days. The shape, size, and wide implantability of the single-phase implant ensure the immediate load capacity.

What are the additional benefits of an immediate loadable one-phase implant?
An essential advantage of this implant that has not yet been mentioned is that it can also be used in cases of bone deficiency that does not exceed a certain degree. That is excellent news for the older age group, as bone deficiency is more common in this age group. It is OK for patients with bone deficiency because it is implantable not only into the tooth bone but also in the jawbone.

What is the exact process of an immediate loadable one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation?

A mouth rehabilitation with a one-phase implant occurs in two steps. In the first part, the implantation of immediate loading implants and the preparation of the long-term temporary denture take place. In the second part, we prepare the permanent denture.
First time
– Free, personal consultation with the implantologist performing the implantation.
– CT and panoramic x-rays.
– Detailed examination of the oral cavity, particularly concerning the condition of the bones and gums.
– Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia.
– General anesthesia.
– Removal of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment.
– Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation.
– Implantation of the required number of one-phase implants.
– Sampling for long-term temporary denture(s).
– Preparation of long-term temporary dentures.
– Fixation of the long-term temporary denture or dentures on the implants. The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient.
– The necessary control tests.

It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second visit, but we recommend to have made the permanent denture(s) within a year or so.

Second occasion
– Free personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement.
– Panoramic X-ray recording.
– Thorough examination of the oral cavity, particularly regarding the condition of the implants.
– Sampling for the permanent denture.
– Preparation of permanent porcelain dentures. The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient, similar to the long-term temporary denture(s).
– The necessary control tests.

How and who should I choose if I want an immediate loadable one-phase implant-based denture?
Your dentist may be excellent and knowledgeable, but that doesn’t necessarily mean an experienced implantologist. That is because it requires special knowledge and skills. Even if you think you have the best implantologist to do the work, you still need to research before making a final decision. Therefore, for one-phase implantation, always consult the appropriate oral surgeon with the knowledge and practice to perform such implantation perfectly.
