Dental Implants

   

Implants are small screws made of titan. There are attached to the bone in upper- or lower jaw to replace roots there the patient misses his own teeth. It's possible to insert implants in a healthy, healed bone tissue.

An implant works as a prosthetic column that carries the crown, bridge or denture. Depending on how many teeth are missing, how the jaw is built and the bite determines how many implants are necessary and different prosthetic constructions. The surgery is performed in local anaesthesia and takes about one hour. The area after surgery feels sore and is swollen a couple of days.

Two-step surgery
The implants must be integrated with the bone tissue, so-called (Osseo integration). The patient must wait until the implant is integrated with the oral bone. The healing period is about three months in the lower jaw and six months in the upper jaw. Then a covering screw is placed on top of the implant in order to protect it while the entire implant is covered with gum. The patient uses a or a dental bridge or a temporary denture during this time.

After the healing period and the implant has integrated into the jawbone the gum is opened and is fitted with a healing post. After two weeks, the healing post is replaced with a post, and an impression is made for crown, bridge or denture. When the device is ready, the new crown or bridge is screwed on the post/implant alternatively the new denture can be fixated directly on the post/implant.

One-step surgery
If the bone quality is good, the healing post can be inserted simultaneously with the implant during insertion. The healing period is the same as in two-step surgery. The advantage is that the prosthetic part of the treatment can start directly after the healing period.

There are several implant systems on the market
Dental implants have been used for over 40 years. It gives a permanent replacement for those teeth that are missing. The method has grown in its popularity grows over the years. There are a number of dental implant systems on the market like: Brånemark, Astra, Strauman, 3i, TioLogic, etc. What system to choose depends on the patient's individual situation, quality of tooth bone, experiences of the system, warranty time and price.

Are you a candidate for dental implants?
The bone quality must be adequate to hold the new implant. If not, you have to do a sinus-lift, where you own bone or an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute is transplanted to reinforce the tooth bone. Smokers, big consumer of alcohol and user of specific medicine could be advised not to have dental implants.

How does it work? - Schedule for dental implants (two-step surgery)
Implant treatment is performed in two steps, a surgical part, and a prosthetic part. You need 2-4 journeys to the clinic.

The Smile Team uses well-known implant system (Brånemark, Astra, 3i, TioLogic, etc.). The surgery is performed under local anaesthetics and takes about one hour. After your surgery, you will have a dental bridge or a temporary denture during the healing period.
