Basal dental implantation is a modern implantation method that allows you to get rid of defects in the dentition. It has been used for over 30 years, gives good results and has a number of advantages over classical implantation. For example, in the process of basal implantation, dental implants are installed with the simultaneous installation of a prosthesis. This is possible even if the patient's bone tissue is atrophied. In addition, after basal implantation, its loss is excluded. Basal implantation prevents further bone loss.
This can be explained by the structure and features of the implant itself. It has an inverted T-shape and is attached to the jawbone from the side. Thus, when chewing, the entire load falls on the base bone plate. It is adapted to stress and has a high regeneration rate. It should be said that the implant itself is made of mirror polished titanium. Microbes do not stick to it, and, therefore, the risk of infection of the implant is excluded.
Benefits of basal implantation.
The advantages of basal implantation referred by experts include the fact that surgical intervention is required only once. The operation is performed on an outpatient basis, but no hospitalization after implantation is required. The procedure usually takes up to 40 minutes, depending on the number and type of prostheses and the area to be operated. The operation is performed under anesthesia. The patient feels no pain. This procedure is considered to be less traumatic, patients even have no stitches. The engraftment process is easier than with screw prostheses. Since, unlike screw prostheses, basal implants are implanted into the bone tissue without unscrewing the flap, so no blood accumulates in the space formed between the bone tissue and the soft tissues of the jaw.
It is quickly removed from the formed cavity through the cuts in the soft tissues. As a result, the patient does not suffer from headaches arising from an increase in pressure inside the bone. In just 4-7 days after the operation, chewing functions are already restored.
It should be noted that this procedure is sometimes twice as cheap as screw implantation. In Oryol, the cost of a complex basal implantation does not depend on the number of implants installed, the level of bone tissue and the condition of the remaining teeth. Basal implants are durable. They are able to serve for over 25 years. This was achieved thanks to a special implantation technology. The implant is placed horizontally in the bone tissue.
Thus, the risk of its falling out is minimized. Implantologists can correct the defect or replace the prosthesis with a new one.
The use of basal implantation in modern dentistry is very common. Therefore, the doctors of our clinic have extensive experience in this area. Basal dental implantation is performed in several cases:
- in the process of destruction of supporting teeth, especially after fixing a removable clasp prosthesis;
- if classical two-stage dental implantation is impossible, since the patient has contraindications for bone augmentation surgery;
- if it is necessary to restore one tooth or a whole dentition;
- when observing complete or partial atrophy of bone tissue on the lower and/or upper jaw of the patient;
- if for health reasons (allergies, etc.) the patient cannot use removable acrylic dentures;
- with severe periodontal disease of the gums.
