Implant dentistry has grown significantly over the past few years, thus avoiding the use of bridge and removable devices and offering a truly sustainable solution. This technique is recommended for those who have recently lost a tooth due to tooth decay, gum disease, periodontal disease or injury. The results are also excellent and most patients who live today with an implant are satisfied.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root set up when the natural root cannot be saved. It is inserted permanently or temporarily into the jaw to hold an artificial tooth in place. It is usually made of titanium, a biocompatible material with the jawbone. Implants help stabilizing the jaw, preventing further bone loss, and maintaining the shape of the jawbone. They are a practical alternative to dentures since they do not pull out and are much more comfortable and natural. When you have an implant, you feel almost no difference from your own tooth. Besides, implants are preferable to traditional bridges and crowns as they are not simply cemented to the jaw. They also avoid the problems of alignment or pain that other dental reconstruction techniques can cause. The bridges and crowns placed on an implant will not move and slip. Therefore, all kinds of problems to talk or chew so not occur. To get a tooth implant, the patient must have strong healthy gums and a jaw that can support and maintain the implant. There are several factors that should be considered in the planning process, such as the general health of the patient, their mucous membranes and jaws condition. In addition to the aspect, size and position of the jaws and adjacent and opposite teeth. The overall procedure of a dental implant treatment usually takes 4 to 6 months. It is important to let the surgical sites heal between each treatment phase to ensure an optimal result.

How is dental implant Surgery performed ?
Dental implants are usually categorized according to the type of procedure used to place them: in two steps or in one step. The two-step dental implants is usually under local anesthesia or sedation at the dental clinic. Endosseous implants are generally used for two-stage tooth implant. First the dentist carries out a small incision in order to set the implant into the jawbone. A period of three to six months must then be observed to allow the implant to integrate well with the bone.
This is called Osseo-integration". After the dental implant has been inserted into the alveolar bone the dentist will perform another light intervention to attach the implant abutment to it in order to receive the prosthesis. Once the healing and Osseo-integration process finished the restorative dentist installs a final artificial prosthesis such as Crown Bridge or denture on the tooth implant abutment. Several visits to the restorative dentist may be required to obtain an ideal fit of the final prosthesis on the abutment.
Dental implants in one stage involves surgically placing an implant in the jaw so that the implant is on the jaw bone, with the upper part of the implant in the gum's tissue. Then, the latter is sewed by leaving the implant head visible. Therefore, after several months of healing, the abutment of the dental implant and the temporary restoration can be fixed without the need for minor surgery to expose the head of the implant. For instance, the Subperiosteal implants are most commonly used for dental implant procedures in one step. They are mainly used to maintain prostheses in patients with insufficient bone height in other words their bone is too short.
Post operative effects and recovery after Dental Implant Procedure
During the first days you will feel pain as well as swelling at the operative site. It is essential to respect the dentist instructions during the first days so that the postoperative follow-up will proceed as well as possible. It is recommended not to smoke because it increases the risk of developing postoperative infections, slows healing and decreases the success rate of the implant. It is important to brush with a very soft toothbrush provided after the operation to clean the wound and avoid mouthwashes. A first postoperative check is performed one week to ten days after surgery to ensure the healing process and remove the stitches. Two more control appointments between the third and seventh weeks are organized with the dental hygienist to ensure the good hygiene around the implant and check the good bone integration. The consultations last between 15 and 30 minutes.

Before and after Dental Implant surgery
Before dental implant, an examination and 3D x-ray are important. Indeed, this step allows the dentist to more accurately assess the bone volume of the jaw as well as the location of certain important anatomical structures for implant placement. Depending on the results, the dentist can advise you on the best solution for replacing your tooth. Finally, a surgical guide will be made using our 3D dental implants technology in order to respect as closely as possible the planning of implant placement. Before each implant placement you receive a dose of antibiotics to reduce the infection occurrence at the surgical site. No other particular preparations are recommended. Depending on the technique and your medical condition, the dental surgeon may or may not continue antibiotic therapy after the procedure.
After dental implant, it is advised to avoid eating hot foods or drinks during the days following the procedure as this increases the risk of bleeding in the mouth. On the other hand, the cold beverages produces a vasoconstriction, by decreasing the diameter of the vessel, which reduces the bleeding and the edema.
