Dental implant is one of the best solutions for toothless problem. Patients who have lost one or some teeth but using dentures is very hard for them can choose dental implant treatment.
The first stage for dental implant treatment is dentist examinations. A professional dentist can plan for dental implant treatment by a correct diagnosis and general condition control and considering patient’s oral health. The dentist may order for radiography, if necessary, diagnose implant areas easier.
The next step in one-stage dental implant is preparing selected implant based on the suitable type, quality and price for patient. Then, dental implant is inserted in patient’s jaw bone. It has no side effects or complications for patients.
The dentist considers a rest period for the patient. This time is for creating correct connection between the implant and jaw bone. In this stage, the patient is toothless but he/she can use temporary prosthesis for preserving aesthetic aspects. Obviously, this has a separate cost for the patient.
In the next stage, the site is prepared for inserting dental prosthesis on the dental implant. The dentist should prepare a mold of patient’s teeth. At this point, dental implant has been inserted in patient’s jaw bone and preparing mold is done based on the prosthesis.
The main duty of this prosthesis is creating a stable and strong structure instead of lost teeth. The most important advantage of them is related to aesthetic aspects. The patient can select the color of prosthesis for inserting on the implant but the color harmony between the prosthesis and natural teeth of the patient is one of the duties of the dentist.
These prostheses are also called veneer. They are mainly used as a cover for damaged teeth because of tooth decay or thinned wall teeth or broken teeth. In fact, restoration operation is due to this prosthesis. The crowns that are used in Iran market and are compatible with other natural teeth are porcelain or zirconia crowns.
Implant crown is made in laboratory for 2-stage dental implant. The crown is inserted on the abatement (one of the implant components) by the dentist. At this point, the patient is asked to control the color and comfort of the prosthesis. It will be used as permanent crown, if the patient is satisfied of it.
It is necessary to observe all oral health points for dental implant similar to natural tooth to improve dental implant lifespan. It is recommended to avoid chewing hard or harmful foods. Using regular mouthwash and floss is necessary.
Increased age of toothless patients and also in some cases serious depletion of jaw bone has made it very difficult for deciding about dental implant treatment. On the other hand, most of the patients are eager to have dental implants despite of severe jaw bone depletion and this is the most important challenge for dentists. Removable dental implant-based prostheses have reduced such problems but patients are not satisfied with removable dental prosthesis.
The following points should be considered by the dentist for bone grafting in lost tooth hole; 1) the space should be considered for inserting the bone graft so; the volume of the bone graft should be exactly the same as the main bone; 2) the bone should be dense enough to support dental implant in a stable way and bone graft should have the specifications of ossification to produce bone cells, and 3) the materials should be relatively cheap and available and free of pathological conditions.
The impacts of Beta Blockers and Heartburn drugs on implant treatment According to American researchers’ reports on implant patients; we can conclude that heartburn drugs have great influence on implant success rate. Based on the dentists, the percentage of success in dental implant has a direct relation with healing procedure and compatibility of implant with patient’s jaw bone.
Due to fast growth of bacteria inside the mouth; we always have to observe oral health points. The growth of bacteria around dental implant crown is faster than natural teeth. So, it is highly recommended to recognize bacteria aggregation by dental expert regular examinations. Then, dental expert can take immediate actions to solve this problem. It is worth noting that dental implant is more sensitive to bacteria aggregations and unnatural pressures compared with natural teeth.
