dental implants are particularly used when the patient
does not meet the necessary requirements for an immediate
load dental implant.
used technique for conventional dental implants
consist of two stages:
1 - A surgery is made in order
to open the flap on the gum, which is the place where the dental
implant shall be inserted; once inserted, the flap
is closed by using one or two stitches for the proper healing-up
of the wound.
It is necessary to wait for the bone integration of the
dental implant for two or three months. This can be
seen in a common radiography, which shall show that the color
and consistency of the surrounding bone to the dental implant
is similar to the other part of the maxilla.
2 - Once the compliance of this process has been checked, the
second stage shall begin consisting of reopening the gum, but
only as necessary to make the connection between the
dental implant and the prosthetic piece. The latter
shall support the crown.
In 90% of
cases from patients, the immediate load is possible for dental
implants; however, in case the patient does not have
the sufficient amount of bone in the area where the dental implant
shall be placed, a deferred load is preferred.
The idea is that,
if the bone is still not ready for such a load, it shall grow
for two or three months in order to allow the bone integration
process (the integration of the dental implant into the bone),
so that the conventional dental implant is further
Other causes provoking
the patient to receive a conventional dental implant
are if the patient grinds his/her teeth or if he/she bites his/her
nails. Also, the specialist shall determine which patient shall
not follow the specified recommendations for the immediate
load implant type (such as eating a bland diet during
the first weeks or having a daily oral hygiene), and shall recommend
the conventional dental implant.
