Immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation is the best teeth replacement solution
Most of us remember the not-so-distant past when the only way to tooth replacement or the make of complete dentures, or more precisely, to fix them to the jaw bone, was a prosthesis with an artificial plate. There was an improved version of that when reduced the size of the extremely disturbing artificial palate was, the downside of which was the denture that you had glue in to fix. These dentures have never been perfectly stable, causing a lot of annoyance. Not to mention that these prosthetics’ bite-chewing capabilities are not even close to a denture nowadays. The strength of these dentures is the immediate loading implant and implantation system. What exactly is that? Well, that’s what this writing will be about.
What is a dental implant?
Before introducing the immediate loading implant, let’s talk about dental implants in general, including those they use in dentistry. A dental implant is a high-purity titanium alloy, sometimes multi-piece, artificial tooth root that can perfectly replace the original tooth root when implanted in the jawbone. The high-purity titanium alloy can also be a solution for those with a metal allergy. As we will see later, there are several types of dental implants; we mention two in this writing, one in detail.
Dental problems that can solve with implants
– In the absence of one or two teeth, it is possible to have replaced them without sacrificing two healthy teeth next to the missing tooth to fix the replaced one. In place of the missing tooth, the implant implanted in the tooth bone is ideally suited to hold the crown the put on it securely.
– If you have a bridge and the teeth fixing the bridge can no longer perform their fixing function with implants, this problem is solvable to your satisfaction. The same goes for uncomfortable, poorly functioning dental bridges.
– If you feel that your quality of life has deteriorated significantly due to a malfunctioning traditional glued denture, the dental implant may be the best solution. Indeed, dentures made in this way cost substantially more, but it is also true that for this higher price, you get a denture very similar to your original teeth in all aspects.
What are the two most common types of implant families?
Although we are talking mainly about the immediate loading implant system in this article, we have to mention that there is a much longer-used implant type and method, the traditional two-phase implant. As its name says, this implant implantation happens in two phases. You can read more about this and the differences between the two types of implants here.
Why choose a dental implant?
– Provides perfect bite and chewing capability.
– Properly chewed food digests faster and easier, which is healthier for your body.
– It means a high degree of comfort and safety for you.
– Beautiful dentures change the characteristics of the face and provide a more confident look.
Why choose an immediate loading implant?
– Because it is loadable immediately after implantation, the implants secure the long-term temporary denture they make during oral rehabilitation.
– Since it is implantable in the tooth bone and jaw bone, it is usable in cases of severe bone deficiency.
– The immediate loading implant contains a single peace, implantable in a single phase.
– One-phase immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation is ready in 5 working days. That includes the long-term temporary dentures too.
What does oral rehabilitation mean?
Understand there is no single tooth suitable for dental treatment in the oral cavity. We speak of oral rehabilitation when a complete tooth replacement is required. Oral rehabilitation is performable on the upper jawbone, the lower jawbone, or, in the case of full mouth rehabilitation, on both jawbones. Immediate load-bearing implant-based oral restoration occurs for aesthetic reasons. This type of intervention is widespread in the case of public figures, for whom a perfect appearance is essential.
Why is it necessary to perform the immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation treatment under anesthesia?
Almost all dental treatments are performable with local anesthesia, including implant placement. However, there are cases when the treatment is recommended under general anesthesia, such as implant-based oral rehabilitation. Replacing one or several teeth with immediately loadable implants is almost always performed under local anesthesia. In such cases, effective pain relief is possible even without general anesthesia since it is a relatively short time and a specific small area of the oral cavity.
The situation is entirely different when the intervention affects the entire oral cavity, such as in the case of one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation. General anesthesia becomes necessary for two main reasons.
- The entire oral cavity is affected. In the case of mouth rehabilitation under general anesthesia with a one-phase implant, the whole oral cavity is involved, including the upper and lower teeth bones and jawbones. It means such a large area that complete and adequate pain relief is almost impossible with local anesthesia. Both the success of the dental implant and the patient’s sense of comfort and complete pain relief is significant.
- Long-term intervention. Another reason oral rehabilitation must perform under general anesthesia is that it is a relatively long-term operation. The long time for full mouth rehabilitation can be up to four hours or even longer. With local anesthesia for such a long time, effective pain relief is hardly possible, if at all. That is the second main reason oral rehabilitation with one-phase implants is performed almost exclusively under general anesthesia. The implantation package price includes the cost of general anesthesia. You can read more about this topic here
Our article discussed dental implants, one-phase immediate loading implant, and implant placement. We told you when and for why oral rehabilitation may become necessary, and we talked in detail about the one-phase implant-based mouth rehabilitation under general anesthesia treatment.
