Each implantologist should consider the dental implantation as an integral process.
It is important to remember that at the process of implantation you can damage any anatomical organization, which is located near dental implant placement area. In order to avoid such damages, an experienced implantologist should not only remember about their location, but also know a variety of useful surgical techniques. The anatomical risks include not only poor implant osseointegration, but also the danger of anatomical organizations damaging.
In the process of dental implantation surgery, do not forget about inferior alveolar crest, maxillary sinuses, and other structures even those that are located in the distal areas.
Top 4 risks of dental implantation in the mandible
1. In the process of dental implantation, there is a thread to damage the front and upper alveolar canal. It will complicate the further process of implantation, but such damage is not very serious for patient health and implant stability.
2. Dental implant placement near such anatomic structures as prepalatal channel and sinus may rise the risk of poor implant osseointegration.
3. The injury of alveolar nerve or its branches while dental implantation may cause the risk of temporary or final discomfort for the patient.
4. If dentist damages the sublingual, chin-hyoid, under-chin and lower the palatine artery or breaks resorbed mandible in the process of dental implantation surgery, there is a risk of injury caused by inadequate loading.
Consider all the risks that could arise in the process of implantation in the mandible and pay special attention to the x-ray results of each individual clinical case.
