Implants


Implantation without Suture

What are implants?

It has always been the aim of all prosthetic dental treatment to restore natural conditions in the mouth as faithfully as possible when teeth have decayed or been lost. The smaller the number of teeth remaining, the more difficult it is to achieve this aim. With large prostheses, it is frequently impossible to achieve perfect functioning in the long term, because changes may occur in the jaw and the gums of the mouth as a result of the situation. The prosthesis no longer fits well, it loses its hold.

In many such cases, tooth implants offer a better solution. Implants replace missing teeth, including the root. They are implanted in the jaw in place of the old missing teeth. While the implant is healing, the bone adheres to it, so that eventually it is firmly anchored in the bone. During the healing or incorporation period, wich lasts at least three months, the implant lies below the gum of the mouth, wich protects it against stresses during this phase. Then a peg is screwed into the implant, on wich the „new tooth” is firmly fixed in place like a traditional crown. The implant takes on the pressure from chewing instead of the root and gently introduces it into the jaw, almost like the natural tooth.

Implants...

  • are manufactured from biologically compatible neutral titanium. Titanium is accepted by the human organism. The body does not react by rejecting the material.
  • have roughened surfaces. This provides favourable conditions for firm incorporation and anchoring of the „new root” in the jaw.
  • the particular shape of implants promotes firm anchoring immediately after implantation (primary stability) and helps to protect the jaw from stress induced by chewing.
When individual teeth need to be replaced: To avoid the need for the dentist to grind down healthy adjacent teeth, an implant is indicated as a way of closing the gap between the teeth.
When one or more teeth are missing at the end of a row of teeth in the upper or lower jaw: When a conventional means of replacement is used, the only solution possible is a removable denture, held in place by the gum. In this case, implants create the basis for a permanent fixed bridge.
When there are large gaps between a few remaining teeth: Implants are placed in these gaps where, together with the teeth still present, they act as supports for the dental prosthesis. This is then designed to be fixed or removable, depending on the situation.
When the patient no longer has any of his/her own teeth: A conventional full prosthesis (denture) is held in place by the gum alone. If implants are used, the prosthesis is firmly held in place, thus preventing it from slipping out of position when the person is chewing or speaking.

What does the treatment involve?

  • Your dentist will begin by examining your mouth and teeth thoroughly, because any inflammation needs to be cured before implantation can begin. Decay in any remaining teeth and any periodontal disease should be treated first. If you are suffering from any systemic (general) illness, the use of implant may need the approval of your medical doctor.
  • Once the dentist has acquired an overall picture of your teeth, has explained the treatment to you and planned his course of action, the operation begins. Following application of a local anaesthetic (see also sedation), the jaw is exposed at the point where the implant will be inserted into the bone. The site for the implant is prepared, the implant is inserted and then the gum is stitched back.
  • The fact that the implant is covered by the gum protects it against potentially harmful stress during the healing phase, so that it can be incorporated without any disruption.
  • Depending on the indivudual situation, it takes 3 to 6 months for the implant to be firmly anchored into the jaw. A peg is screwed into the implant and the prosthesis is then fixed in place over it.
  • Control examinations every six month

The patient’s right attitude is after implantation

The first days after implantation

  • After the implantation of more implants, immediately after the intervention it is not recommended to take part in traffic without attendant. The driving itself is forbidden.
  • You are allowed to eat and to drink, if the effect of the anaeshetization already ceased, otherwise you can leap at your tongue or at the wound of the operation or you can swallow badly.
  • On the day of the intervention and 1-5 days later you should avoid heavy physical work, sport, lifting, going to the sauna because these activities can cause after-bleeding
  • The swelling - that the intervention cause - can be avoided or it can be reduced well, if you cool the place of the intervention from outside (on face). It is recommended to cool it and to put it on, on the day of the operation and on the following 1-2 days several times, for 2-3 minutes every occasion.
  • You are not allowed to chew on the place of the implant and you should avoid consuming hard or tough food-products, such as dry bread, tough meat, crisp vegetables, walnut, hazel-nut etc.
  • On the day of the operation you should avoid the strong rinsing of mouth, only mild rinsing after eating is recommended.
  • You should avoid also consumer goods (alcohol, coffee, strong tea, smoking) on the following 7 days after the intervention.
  • The stiches have to be remained in the mouth on the following 10 days after the intervention. We will give you a special liquid, antibiotic and painkiller pills. Please use these according to the users instructions.

In the following weeks
  • The regular, careful care of the mouth is one of the most important conditions of the successful implantation.
  • Please, do not use electric toothbrush or mouth-shower in any circumstances.
  • It is not allowed to leap at the implant or touch it by finger or tongue.
