Every dental implant surgery is always unique because we are all different. There are protocols and standards of dental care for different situations but dental implant techniques are developed considering the individual options. However, even the strictest rules, tried through practice, require periodic review. The restoration of anterior or posterior areas in the same patient can be performed in different ways.
The thing is that completely different tasks will be solved in these two different situations with the help of dental implants. It is important to remove the defect of the dentition in the frontal zone as quickly as possible, as it is a smile zone, the placement of implants in the posterior area means that their load-bearing capacity is increasing, as they are under the main pressure during chewing.
A one-stage implant placement procedure with immediate loading is usually selected for the anterior area – a two-stage implant placement procedure with delayed loading for posterior area. Nevertheless, it is important not to forget that the first essential stage of any dental implant technique is a careful preparation to this procedure. This preparation includes medical examination of allied physicians to exclude contraindications, laboratory diagnosis and additional diagnostic methods, dental x-ray or CAT and medical treatment of all possible inflammatory processes in the mouth.
Dental implant treatment and surgery are planned according these results, and only then it is allowed to perform the placement of dental implants. As already mentioned in this case a classic implant placement procedure with delayed loading is performed, i.e. two-stage technique. The only possible disadvantage of this technique is that implant healing process takes minimum 4-6 months. During this period a temporary crown is placed which must be loaded very carefully. It concerns the case of a single implant placement.
However, the most frequent prosthetic option of a missing chewing tooth or molar is a dental bridge placement. As this technique has been already using for a long time, some treatment rules have changed. The fact is that the use of regular diameter implant to replace a single molar causes some problems. Therefore large-diameter implants are used, which require sufficient bone volume as well as bone graft surgery or multiple implant-supported bridge, to evenly distribute the load, which can reach 40 or even 50 kg.
Taking into account all the details of dental implants in the posterior area, the specialists of the company Bio3 Implants have developed dental implants of optimal diameter for this procedure and recommend a two-stage technique with delayed loading for achieving a successful and reliable osseointegration which allows to perform a prosthetic procedure.
