What is an oral restoration with a one-phase immediate loading implant?
Millions of people suffer from tooth loss due to tooth decay, gum disease, periodontal disease, or injury. Traditional crown, bridge, and denture treatments were available for a prolonged period. But with technological advancement, dental implants are widely available nowadays. In time they become as valuable as gold for replacing missing teeth. Before going into the details, we need to clarify what significant dental implants exist and what is the most crucial difference between a one-phase immediate loading implant and a two-phase implant.
What is a dental implant?
A dental Implant is an “artificial tooth root” capable of restoring the original tooth roots. It is a tiny, sturdy, high-quality titanium alloy screw positioned to fit into the tooth bone or jawbone with a surgical process. The screw firmly connects the artificial teeth to the jaw in this dental implantation method. They function and look just like natural teeth. The goal is to replace the damaged or missing teeth.
What are the two primary implantation methods?
While discussing dental implantation methods, we discuss two prominent implant families and implantation methods. One is a traditional two-phase and the other one-phase immediate loading implant. Let’s learn and understand the difference between these two.
The two-phase, traditional implantation method takes two stages spread over four to six months. First, the replacement of the implants takes place in the jaw bone, and then the making of the permanent dentures.
Some of the benefits of a one-phase immediate loading implant
– A one-phase implant is implantable in a single phase. Consequently, the implantation of an implant is a single intervention. The two-phase implantation takes two stages.
– The immediate loading implant is loadable immediately. That means, among other things, that the long-term temporary denture made after implant placement attachable to the implants. That is not the case with two-phase.
– A one-phase implant consists of a single piece. Two-phase is not. It makes implantation easier, and the time spent on implantation is shorter.
– The immediate loading implant is implantable not only in the tooth bone but also in the jaw bone. This type of Implant is also usable in case of bone deficiency.
– The one-phase Implant is implantable perpendicularly and at a different angle. It is essential in the case of bone deficiency because it enables the reach of the most suitable bone tissue. There is no such possibility with two-phase.
– For the reasons listed, using a one-phase implant most likely makes bone replacement unnecessary.
What is a one-phase immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation?
Oral rehabilitation becomes necessary when no single tooth in the oral cavity is suitable for dental care. The restoration may be possible on the upper jawbone, the lower jawbone, or both; the latter is full mouth rehabilitation. It often happens that there are still teeth, but for some reason, they are unsuitable for further dental treatment, or the treatment is only a short, temporary solution. There are necessary conditions for saving a tooth, both from a health and financial point of view. Most importantly, a tooth should only be “saved” and treated if it represents a reliable solution lasting for years.
Users of such dentures face many challenges during wear, such as lousy biting and chewing power, inadequate stability, and other discomforts. Oral rehabilitation is traditionally possible, which is more common and based on dental implants. In the traditional method, they fix the dentures with an artificial vacuum floor and gluing.
The other solution, both technologically and in terms of the result, is the denture fixed on a dental implant, including one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia. The end goal is the same in both cases: replacing the natural tooth root with a dental implant. At the same time, in the case of tooth replacement based on dental implants, there are a lot of differences between two-phase and one-phase implants and implantation. Both the Implant and the implantation method are different.
What is the process of one-phase Implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia?
Oral 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 occur. The second part is the making of the permanent denture(s)
– 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 a long-term temporary denture(s).
– Preparation of long-term temporary denture (s).
– 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.
The making of the permanent denture(s)
– 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 denture(s). The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient, similar to the long-term temporary denture.
– The necessary control tests.
In this writing, we discuss one-phase immediate loading implant-based oral rehabilitation. We explained the most important differences between a two-phase and a one-phase implant, discussed the significant benefits of immediate loading implants, and briefly explained how one-phase Implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia occurs.
