Technology is always adding to our improved lifestyle and in the areas of medicine and personal health, the progression has been geometric. The other aspect that has changed is the cost. A few years ago only the wealthy could afford implants or radical dental treatment but these days, costs have decreased, availability has increased, and health insurances can include them in their cover.
New Implant Techniques
Your dentist may recommend a standby procedure in which an implant can be inserted the same day, and you go about your normal daily life while the bone grafts to the metal. This will depend on whether you have enough natural bone to provide a secure support for the new tooth, albeit a temporary fix. The full procedure can then be done after about 3 to 6 months when the implant has fully grafted to the bone.
A dentist, after determining that your jawbone is not suitable for traditional implant surgery, may insert what is called a ‘Mini Implant.’ One of the most annoying aspects of having a full set of false teeth is the looseness and ever changing fitting of the bottom plate. A mini implant can be used to secure this lower denture.
One of the aspects of implants that nobody likes is the period of time it takes for the metal to graft to the bone. In a day and age where it’s a society of We want it, but we want it now mindset, much of the newly developed techniques in the implant business has to do with improvements to the discomfort of the procedure and the grafting time.
Another system that is gaining in popularity is the ‘All-on-4’ which involves placing the implants into available bone. This helps to avoid the actual waiting for the grafting with no teeth. A temporary set of teeth can then be attached, and the patient must adhere to a special diet while the gums heal and the bone grafts to the implant. The final bridge is placed after about 6 months, and the patient can resume a normal diet.
