Dental Implant

Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements used to counter tooth loss. They hold a crown, bridge, or denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Many dentists consider implants to be one of the greatest advancements in dentistry since they truly are β€œthe next best thing to your natural teeth.” Unlike a traditional plate or bridge, dental implants are actually anchored to your jaw. After integration with the jawbone, the crown, bridge or denture is then attached to the implants. This provides much greater stability for more effective eating, speaking and smiling!. The procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, though it also falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry as well.

Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. They look and feel very natural such that you may even forget about your loss of tooth/teeth. If you have one or more teeth missing and wish to eat your favorite foods, increase your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem, then you are a candidate for dental implants.

The Single-dental-implant

The conventional dental implant (two / three-piece crestal implants) is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge, which requires more complex procedures and is time-consuming and also the relation between the root portion and the abutment portion can present problems due to higher mechanical stress under oblique loading.

The Single-dental-implant also is known as Immediate Load Basal implants or Simpladent Implant helps the implantologist in treating a wide variety of cases that cannot be attempted with the conventional two / three-piece crestal implants. These high-tech prostheses are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. As per the available scientific evidence, natural teeth absorb a great amount of biting pressure – approximately 540 lbs/sq. inch. On the contrary, those who are wearing dentures can hardly absorb more than 10 percent of this pressure. However, dental implants can withstand 450 lbs./sq. inch biting pressure without any problems, whatsoever.

Dental implants are made from surgical-grade titanium alloy to exacting specifications. The alloy is absolutely compatible with human body tissues. For long-term maintenance being a single piece, the strength provided by the implant is excellent and there is no separate root portion and abutment portion which makes it very simple.

Advantages of the Immediate Load Basal implants

  • Immediate Loading: Prosthesis loaded within 72 hours of Implant surgery.
  • Single Piece Implantology: It minimised the failure of implants due to interface problems between the connections which exist in conventional two and three-piece implants.
  • Basal Bone Support: Most of these implants take support from the basal bone which are a lot more resistant to resorption, very much unlike the conventional implants which mostly take support from the crestal bone. Basal cortical bone also has a much faster and stable repairing capacity.
  • Minimally Invasive: In most edentulous situations the single-piece screw-type implants can be inserted in a minimally invasive fashion – often flapless and involving minimum bone cutting. The implants are self-tapping and condense bone around the implant during insertion. Being minimally invasive, they are also associated with minimum post-operative edema, and healing at the procedure sites is rapid and often non-eventful.
  • Easy to manage in 'Unfavorable Bone Situations': These implants are unique in that they utilize the available bone in the best possible manner to avoid bone augmentation procedures while in the conventional implants, the available bone is modified to suit the implants by bone augmentation/grafting, sinus lifts, and nerve trans-positioning and other complex procedures.

  • Effective remedy for destructive periodontitis: Basal implants work extremely well in patients with acute destructive periodontitis, where the mobile teeth have little or no bone support at all by facilitating implant placement and immediate loading soon after extractions.
  • Acceptable solution for Peri-implantitis incidence: Peri-implantitis is the single most common cause for failure of conventional implants. Judicious use of basal implants eliminates the threat of peri-implantitis by almost 98%.
  • Unique procedure in Medically compromised situations: Basal implants offer a unique opportunity to the implantologist to treat cases that cannot be treated with the conventional implant systems. Basal implants work fine in controlled diabetics, in smokers, and in patients who have little or no bone for conventional implants.
