Dental implant methods In dental implant treatment plan; it is necessary to consider several factors such as relationship between the team members and their collaboration, choosing the right patient, precise planning for implant treatment, implant quantity, implant location, implant diameter and height, necessity of surgery, preparation of bone and oral soft tissue before main surgery, determining the best prosthesis for implant and coordinating all the above mentioned steps with technicians.

Surgeon’s duties before starting implant treatment:
Dental implant surgeons’ duties after implant treatment (surgery and prosthesis):
Patient’s mental condition should be examined to determine any systemic conditions or psychopathy. The patients with certain conditions such as Parkinson, cardiovascular diseases and uncontrolled diabetes and so on are not good candidates for implant. In some certain cases; it is necessary for the surgeon to consult with other medical experts. implant surgeon should examine different radiographs.
After reviewing and precise interpreting of radiographs and local examinations; the surgeon can prepare a detailed treatment plan for the patient considering the general health of the patient in collaboration with a prosthesis expert. In certain cases, prosthesis expert can mention any limitation or difficulties for treatment to the surgeon. Most of the time, surgeon will take the final decision based on limitations and available facilities to choose the quantity, diameter, height and location of the implants. Prosthesis expert should coordinate the treatment plan. Full review of both jaws determines a better understanding of treatment objectives. Such planning and decision makings are not possible without dental tests arrangements and preparing test prosthesis before surgery.
By putting small 5mm ball bearings; the surgeon will determine the diameter and the location of implants. The surgeon will determine the location and direction of the prosthesis in the first phase of the surgery. This prosthesis is very useful for finding the exact location of implants in the second phase of the surgery. After the first phase of surgery including inserting implant or implants within the jaw bone; dental implant team member will make decisions together about using the previous prosthesis or the time of using this prosthesis. It is recommended to the patients not to put pressure on dental implant during the first 2 weeks after implant surgery. After 2 weeks and by using special materials inside the dental prosthesis; the patient is free to use them. The duration of healing is 4 months for lower jaw and 6 months for upper jaw. Temporary prosthesis may need some kind of repairs during this period.
After a certain time period and if the results of radiography are positive; then the surgeon can perform the second phase of the dental implant surgery. In this stage; implant head is opened to insert screw and the surrounding area is sutured. After completing this stage successfully; the rest of the treatment is assigned to the prosthesis expert. After 2 weeks; the tissue is healed and prosthesis expert will start restoration process.
Dental implant is a special and metal base that is made of Titanium. It is compatible with all human body cells. It can be a permanent and fix substitution for lost tooth. Titanium doesn’t cause allergic reactions and it has biological adaption with human body.
Nowadays, dental implant can solve some problems such as toothless or bad appearance of the teeth. These problems are so bothering and have negative effects on patient’s self-confidence. Patients with dentures also face many problems such as inadequate appearance, lack of comfort, problem while talking and poor hygiene. Dental implant introduced to the market to solve such problems. Dentists use dental implants to help patients to get rid of such problems.
Dental implant Fortunately, dental implants are considered as one of the best solutions for toothless problem. People who have lost one or some teeth and have difficulties for using dentures can use dental implants.
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.
