Upper jaw dental implant treatment

Dental Implants, abatmentDental implant treatment of upper and lower jaws has a lot of differences, difficulties and peculiarities. Of course, dental implantologists and implant manufacturers, knowing  them, use unique techniques, produce specialized implants, which help patients to cope with the problem of tooth loss and bring back a  beautiful smile and  health, despite the location of the dentition defect. But let’s talk about the problems of dental implants placed in the upper jaw.

There are both anatomical and aesthetic complexities of implant placement in the upper jaw which can be solved. The structure of the upper jaw has a number of physiological and anatomical features which are different from the lower one. It is due to the fact that the load is unevenly distributed on the jaws because the lower jaw performs masticatory function, it has a larger amount of bone volume and its density is much higher than the density of the upper jaw bone.

Thus, the tooth loss in the upper jaw may cause low bone density and accelerate the process of its atrophy. These factors could easily make dental implant treatment in the upper jaw almost impossible because of inadequate bone volume. We should also take into account the maxillary and other sinuses, which make the upper jawbone thinner and pneumatic. Severe bone atrophy of lateral maxillary walls and chronic inflammatory diseases of the nasal passages (maxillary sinusitis, sinusitis) are contraindications to dental implants as well.

However, dentists found the solution to all these problems long ago. The solution is called a sinus lift or sinus graft. Sinus lift ( or sinus graft) surgery is performed at the same time with implant placement. The aim of this procedure is to grow bone in the floor of the maxillary sinus for placing implants and their successful osseointegration. This procedure includes implants of special type and design, surgical planning and simulation with the use of various imaging techniques such as X-rays and CT scans. Precise implant placement requires careful monitoring by additional methods as well. Before starting treatment, some patients should visit the otolaryngologist to exclude  problems and diseases of ENT organs.

In order to achieve quality esthetic results by means of dental implants, the dentist must have a certain amount of professional skills and surgical experience. It is important to note that successful result also depends on the choice of the proper implant technique. So, if the defect of side posterior teeth is eliminated by using a classical two-stage procedure, the frontal area has  all indications and benefits for express dental implant procedure with the use of  mini-implants or a one –stage dental  implant procedure with immediate prosthetic restoration, that allows to  maintain the level of the gum and  restore a perfect  smile.

The optimal position and inclination of implants are important as well as the uniform axial loading. The specialists of the company Bio3 Implants consider that high quality implants and dental professional skills complement each other perfectly to solve all the problems associated with missing teeth in the upper jaw.
