How many appointments will be required for my new tooth roots?
This depends on the scope and type of treatment.One session is usually enough for the consultation at which the dentist will be able to answer your questions.The next appointment will be for the preliminary examinations and planning.The new tooth roots can generally be inserted in the jaw bone a short time later in one treatment session.In this procedure the dentist makes a small incision in the gum at the implant position, which is then sutured over the implant after insertion of the implant.The wound is checked to ensure that that it is healing properly one or two days after implant placement.After about ten days the sutured are removed.Now you can wait for the bone to regenerate during the healing phase without any more treatment sessions.
Is an implant placement really a day-surgery procedure?
Yes.The implant dentist works atraumatically and safely so multiple implants can generally be placed without problems in one single session.
Can implants be placed immediately after removing teeth?
Yes, this is often possible today.The implant is placed in the fresh wound immediately after removal of a tooth.This is refered to as immediate implant placement (not to be confused with immediate loading of implants).Available only for the good anatomical conditions.
When and how are the teeth placed on the implant?
In a normal healing process the implants will be fully integrated into the bone in the upper jaw after about six months and in the lower jaw after about four months.Your new crowns can then be firmly fixed in place.
The dentist uncovers the "head" of the implant and temporarily screws on a small cap, called healing screw, to shape the gum correctly.An impression is taken after this stage.The dental technician uses the impression as the basis for the fabrication of your denture.After the colors have been precisely matched and a test fit the denture is securely attached to the implants.
What exactly does "immediate loading" mean and does it aply to me?
The usual plan for implant-borne teeth includes an healing phase with no loading on the implants after they have been inserted.In this procedure the gap is temporarily closed with a classical temporary denture, which is normally attached to the neighboring teeth.However, in immediate loading new implant systems and methods are used that under specific conditions allow the denture to be attached to the implants immediately.Patients receive their implant and have fixed, natural looking teeth on the same day.Whether immediate loading is suitable for you will depend on the state of the jawbone and the position of the implants.Ask your dentist about the options.
Will I be in pain after the procedure?
The gum will propably be sensitive in the first few days after the procedure but will not bleed any more.Your cheek may swell for a short time and may feel uncomfortable.However, most patients will not even need a painkiller on the following day and can return to normal life.
Will I be without teeth during treatment and the healing phase?
No.If you had a removable denture before treatment, it will generelly only require a minor adjustment to allow you to continue to use it.If you did not have a removable denture beforehand, the gap can still be covered with a temporary denture.In some circumstances it can sometimes be fixed to the implants immediately.In the case of such long-term temporary dentures there are very sophisticated solutions that are virtually indistinguishable from the final crowns and your natural teeth.
When can I go back to work again?
Your dentist will propably give you a certificate for a few days of work.However, you will usually be able to live normally the day after the operation and go back to work a few days later.
Are the difference in quality among implants?
Like virtually any product there are very high-quality implants and lower-quality models.For example, there are differences in the shape of implants, particulary with the surface.The surface of an implant can be modified to improve the principally tissue-compatible material properties of titanium, but they can also be reduced.Always have your dentist inform you about the characteristics of the implant that is to be used.Ask about the long-term experience.Also ask about the long-term availability of replacement components in case your denture ever has to be renewed in the future.
