Basal Dental Implants
Revolutionary and completely new method for dental implantation, where there is no need for bone augmentation even in the worst cases. Basal implantology replaces large fields of traditional implantology. Basal implants are replacing zygomatic implants which are the best decision for the patients who need fitting implants on the upper jaw.
According to the earlier technologies the patients should undergo bone grafting and sinus lifting. We need one procedure on the contrary to place a basal implant and in 3 days we place a permanent crown.
Process of Placing Basal Implants
Bone is composed of an internal spongy (cancellous) portion which is covered with the dense bone layer (cortical). Each basal implant is placed in at least two places within the cortical. The cortical used for anchoring of the basal implants is highly mineralized and with the high rate of regeneration. This ensures the integration of dental implants and allows their immediate loading. Basal implants differ from crest (axial) implants in the manner of placing, the manner of force distribution and most importantly by the planning and execution of the prosthetic construction and post-operative regime.
Beauty And Benefits Of Basal Implants
- Basal implants are the first choice for moderate or severe atrophy of the jaw, and in cases where patients want immediate restoration of masticatory function.
- Basal implants can be placed even in cases of severe bone atrophy – patients with advanced periodontal conditions can be treated with basal implants in one visit.
- Single crowns can also be placed over basal implants. They are loaded immediately only in certain situations.
- The requirements for oral hygiene of the patient are less demanding because of the resistance of basal implants. The postoperative care for the implants includes excellent oral hygiene (brushing teeth, using dental floss, mouthwash) and regular check-ups. Otherwise, it is very likely to that the implant will be compromised and could be lost.
- Basal implants are suitable for almost all patients, even those without any teeth.
- Basal implants can be placed in smokers and patients with diabetes.
- Basal implants have a 98% success rate that is a higher rate than one of the classic implants. Often this success is due to the avoiding of bone grafting and sinus lift.
- Patients can get their teeth fixed in 3-4 days. Basal implants can be placed immediately after extraction of teeth in one visit. Therefore this method is less traumatic than the classical implants method.
- Potential complications of implantation are minimised because the placement is associated with less invasive surgery, and implants are placed in the deep layers of sterile bone. This reduces the risk of infection several times compared to the classic implants.
- Placement of basal implants has a lower price than the classical procedure because of the reduced treatment stages.
- Can be used as an anchor for bridges and dentures and allow the patient to immediately restore masticatory function.
