Implants – course of treatment
Detailed information on the qualification of patients for implantation treatment can be found on the page describing general indications for implantation. Below is a description of the surgical part of implant surgery. Implant treatment can be divided into several stages:
- stage one (Fig. 1): We begin with effective anesthesia that guarantees full patient peace so important for optimal positioning of implants. After anesthesia, the dentist clenchs the mucous membrane at the site of the planned implantation procedure and properly prepares the field of surgery. The next step is the gentle drilling of the bones with a drill with a very small diameter – so-called . pilot drill. After the first drilling, subsequent drilling is made with drills with an increasing diameter, until the desired size of the bore for the implant is obtained. The dentist then proceeds to place the implant in the bone. It is important to make the drilling in accurate water cooling so as to avoid overheating the bone tissue surrounding the future implant. After the bone tissue drilling is finished, the dentist proceeds to screw the implant. Optimal selection of the diameter and length of the implant is important to achieve the best possible stabilization immediately after placing the implant in the bone. At this stage, the depth of placement of the implant is also important – it is determined individually depending on the local conditions in the patient's mouth and the type of future prosthetic reconstruction
- stage two: (Fig. 2) after placing implants in the bone, the so-called implant conveyor – that is, the part that allows the implant to be transferred to the patient's mouth and its implantation into the bone without touching its titanium surface. Then the screw protects the center of the implant from the tissue sin-in-one into its interior is screwed. Sometimes in patients with harsh anatomical conditions due to low bone thickness or height, additional bone regeneration procedures may be necessary or the lower bottom of the maxillary sinus
- Stage three: (Fig. 3) the procedure ends with the foundation of seams allowing proper healing of the wound formed after the procedure. The implant remains in the bone for a period of 2~3 months – for mandible or 5~6 months – for the jaw. During this period, depending on the aesthetic indications and functional possibilities, the gap in dention is complemented by adhesive bridges, bite rails or standard acrylic prostheses with soft industude
- what are the possibilities for toothreconstruction on implants? – general possibilities for prosthetic reconstruction are presented on the implants page. Depending on the individual conditions in the mouth, prosthetic crowns, prosthetic bridges or prosthetics on latchs can be performed on implants. We invite you to an implantological consultation, where our doctor Grzegorz Gdula will present options for implantological treatment in a given situation.
- can you function normally after the procedure? – implantation is carried out under local anesthesia, thanks to which it is completely painless, and the patient immediately after the procedure is able to return home by car on his own. During the period 1-2 days after the procedure, depending on its extensiveness, a slight swelling may persist at the implantation site. To reduce its range and ensure proper healing of the post-treatment wound, the dentist prescribes the appropriate medications
- how many days after the procedure are pulled the swathes? – seams are designed to facilitate the healing of gum wounds and prevent the edges of the wound from spreading. They are usually pulled after 8~12 days after surgery. During this period, use appropriate antibacterial rinses, which makes it much easier to heal the wound quickly
