One-phase implant and implantation method - Why do experts recommend it

One-phase implant and implantation method

What are the main benefits of one-phase implantation?

Over the last two decades, the advent of dental implant, especially one-phase implantation, has made tremendous progress in replacing missing teeth. There are two types of implant family and implantation methods. One of them is the older, traditional two-phase implant, and the other is the immediate loading one-phase implant. There is a growing number of dentists who recommend this solution to their patients. Our dental clinic has specialized in one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation. In this article, we are shortly discussing implant families, and then in more detail about the positive properties of the single-phase implant.

In the following, we compare the two implant families and discuss in more detail all the positive features of the immediate loading one-phase implant that we consider important. Let’s get started.

The similarity between the two-phase and one-phase implant
Both implants are perfectly suitable for replacing the natural tooth root and thus replacing missing teeth. They also agree that, in terms of their material, they make them of a high-purity titanium alloy. Finally, they also agree that both should be implanted through oral surgery. And that brings us to the end of the list of similarities.

The benefits of a one-phase implant
One of the reasons people like one-phase implantation is that these implants are loadable immediately! For example, in the case of two-phase implants, you have to wait a 3 to 6 months so-called ossification period before the denture-making process may start. However, the case of a one-phase implant does not have such a waiting time, so long-term temporary denture preparation can begin immediately after implantation.

  • This 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 one-phase implant is loadable immediately after implantation. That means that the long-term temporary denture (that comes with the implantation) is attachable to the implants. That is not the case with two-phase.
  • This implant consists of a single piece. It makes implantation simpler, and the time spent on implantation is shorter.
  •  The one-phase implant is implantable not only in the tooth bone but also in the jaw bone. That is why this implant is also implantable in case of bone deficiency.
  • These implants are implantable perpendicularly and at a different angles. It is essential in the case of bone deficiency because it enables the most suitable bone tissue to be obtained. There is no such possibility with two-phase.

For the reasons listed, using one-phase implantation most likely makes bone replacement unnecessary.

The list is incomplete, but it is understandable why specialists recommend one-phase implantation-based oral rehabilitation to their patients. We perform this type of implant placement under general anesthesia, and it comes with a long-term temporary denture that is ready within a few days. Another important argument is that an immediate loading implant saves money for the patient.
