Dental Implant Placements
Dental implant is done under prosthetic dentistry where an artificial tooth root or a teeth group is placed which resembles the original teeth. It should be done under biological and restorative drive. It should be done after a comprehensive examination and accurate diagnosis. Before the implant placement the osseous ridge which is deficient must be reconstructed.
Types of dental implants
There are different types of dental implants such as ‘endosteal implant’, ‘subperiosteal implant’, ‘transosteal implant’, ‘epithelial implant’, ‘osseointegrated implant’ and ‘fibrointegrated implant’. Ossointegrated implant is more widely used implantation. This causes osteoblasts to grow around the implant element. As implant element titanium is used, and the osteoblasts become integral part of the metal binding together.
Dental implant is done when root canal treatment is not possible with the decaying tooth. The screw made of titanium is placed through the bone and the artificial tooth is placed as a crown on it. It is placed in such a way so that it can support dentures. But the patient has to go through complete surgical process which is done using local anaesthesia. People with bad health do not prefer this treatment.
Remember the facts of dental implant placement
Ninety percent dental placement is successful that lasts for five years.
Due o lack of ossointegration the implant can fail, if the person has a weak jaw bone. Regular smoking can also fail the implants.
Dental caries or plaque does not form after implantation. But due to lack of oral hygiene peri -implantitis can occur.
If the bone to hold the screw is not strong enough the dentist does not do the implantation and the patient has to wait after the medication to strengthen the bone.
Improper grinding by the newly placed teeth can cause bruxism. This can also occur if the ossointegration is not completely done.
