Immediate Load Implants: Common Concerns
In the past, few viable options existed for tooth replacement. People with missing teeth either had fixed bridges or removable dentures. Unfortunately, those options are associated with many issues that typically get worse as patients age. Today, dental implants have become the most popular option.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root that is planted in the jawbone to support dentures, a crown, or bridges. The titanium of the implant is fused to the jawbone. This makes it possible to achieve the same appearance and functionality of your natural teeth. The dental implant is one of the best long-term options for patients suffering from tooth loss. While the thought of having an artificial root placed in your jawbone may seem off-putting, these facts addressing patients’ most common dental implant concerns should put you at ease.
Immediate load implants involve using an intra-oral scanner to map the layout of the gums, teeth, and bone. The DIOnavi system, which is a digital navigation surgery guide, receives the digital impression. This makes it easy for the dentist to insert the implant with the utmost precision.
The placement of immediate load implants involves just a few minimal incisions. This minimizes the infection risk, swelling, bleeding, and recovery period for the patient. The patient doesn’t have to deal with sutures on the gums. Because it’s such a minimally invasive procedure, it is recommended for individuals suffering from systemic disease like high blood pressure and diabetes.
The method of making the implant is incredibly precise, ensuring proper angle, placement, and fit of the crown, which is the tooth’s visible part. “Immediate load” refers to implants that are fitted within two days with crowns. This is best for patients who have concerns about the functionality and appearance of their teeth.
