Learn more about immediate loading implants-based circular bridge

Over time, even with the most careful dental care, problems can occur with our teeth. Generally, general dentistry is sufficient to eliminate the issues, but the time will come when tooth replacement becomes necessary. It’s only a problem if you do not replace the missing tooth or teeth. However, there are two types of solutions: one is the traditional method, and the other is a dental implant. This article deals with the latter solution, including the implant-based circular bridge with one-phase immediate loading implants. First, let’s learn which implant families are used in Hungary today.

What implant families are there?
If the topic is dental implant-based tooth replacement, we can choose from two different implant families. One is the traditional two-phase implant; the other is the one-phase implant, also known as an immediate loading implant. It is typical for other areas, but the dental implant is also named based on its essential characteristics. We will see later that this is very much the case. Although both are dental implants, there is a significant difference between them and their implantation. Let’s see what the most typical differences are.

Two-phase implant
The most important thing to know about this implant is that, if certain conditions are met, it is perfectly suitable for replacing the natural tooth root, thus also for making a one-phase implant-based circular bridge. Its name comes from the fact that the implantation takes place in two separate phases and times. In the first phase, they implant the base; in the second, they remove the so-called healing screw that follows the gingival shaping; finally, they make the permanent denture(s). It is also essential to know that this implant is only implantable in quality tooth bone and only there.

One-phase implant
The one-phase implant, an immediately loaded implant, also got its name based on its main properties. It is implantable in a single phase and loadable immediately after implantation. In practice, both terms are in use. This newer implant, which we have used for almost 20 years, has other significant favorable properties. Based on these, they are usable for a significantly more comprehensive range of implant-based circular bridge restorations than two-phase implants.

What does an implant-based circular bridge mean?
In traditional dentistry, a dental bridge means that when replacing one or a few teeth, they use healthy teeth – or even an implant – to fix the bridge. That is a dental replacement when there are no or only teeth unsuitable for dental care in the oral cavity, and a complete set of teeth is required. In this case, the circular bridge is attached to the necessary number of one-phase implants. A circular bridge is, therefore, nothing but another common name for a complete denture. In implantology, we don’t use the name bridge since, in the case of replacing one or several teeth, there is no need for a healthy tooth that holds the bridge as a pillar. The implant performs this task in all cases.

How is an implant-based circular bridge made?
The one-phase implant-based circular bridge replacement, i.e., complete denture replacement, is performed in the framework of oral rehabilitation, which we perform almost exclusively under general anesthesia. Oral rehabilitation with a one-phase implant consists of two parts. The first part is the one-phase implant implantation, and the long-term temporary circular bridge is the subject. The permanent bridge is made in the second.

First time
The treatment begins with a free, personal consultation with the implantologist oral surgeon who performs the implant placement. Meanwhile, we take CT and panoramic X-rays, which help to understand the state of the bones. In practice, this means a thorough oral cavity examination, particularly concerning the condition of the tooth, jaw, and gums. It is essential information for the implantologist.

The next step is another consultation, this time with the anesthesiologist. Anesthesia requires a preliminary laboratory and EKG examination, without which the anesthesia may not start. During the consultation, the anesthetist explains what is happening and how and answers the patient’s possible questions. If everything is in order, the anesthesia begins, forming the specific treatment.

The most common feature is that there are still teeth in the patient’s mouth, but they are no longer suitable for prosthetic treatment, so we must remove them. It’s usually a simple procedure. However, it sometimes happens that a difficult-to-remove wisdom tooth or its tooth root has to be removed, which can extend the implant placement time by up to an hour.

The number of implants required depends on the specific situation, but usually, more implants go into the upper jawbone and fewer in the lower jaw. If no more teeth are in the oral cavity, one-phase implant placement may start. Since we work with a package price, the number of implants is not essential.

The treatment described so far is done once, in one sitting. Usually, the sample is taken after one or two days or after suture removal for the permanent nerveless circular bridge. The next few days are for control examinations, the tests, and the permanent, temporary one-phase implant-based circular bridge preparation. The intervention takes 5-6 working days, and if everything is in order, the first phase of the one-phase implant implantation treatment ends.

Approximately six months should pass between the first and the second time, but completing the final circular bridge within a year is recommended. The guarantee for implant placement is usually for six months, so we recommend having a consultation before six months have passed. All costs mentioned so far are included in the implantation package price!

Second time
The second session is about preparing the final one-phase implant-based circular bridge and begins with a free, personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement.

First, we take a panoramic X-ray, then the implantologist thoroughly examines the oral cavity, paying particular attention to the condition of the implanted one-phase implants. If both the implants and the gums are OK, we will make it the permanent one-phase implant-based circular bridge.

It starts with sampling for the metal framework that will hold the teeth of the future permanent circular bridge. If everything is in order, we will discuss the choice of tooth color and other characteristics of the future circular bridge. The final one-phase implant-based circular bridge is usually complete in six working days. The one-phase implant-based bridge price is not included in the price of the implant placement.

What is a double guarantee?
We guarantee both the quality of our work and the implants placed. We will discuss the full warranty during the free consultation, together with the warranty conditions. You can then ask questions if you have any.

In our article on a one-phase implant-based circular bridge that is loadable immediately, we explained what tooth replacement options are available and what implant families exist. We explained the concept of an immediate loading implant and the circular bridge prosthesis made with it and finally presented the exact process of one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation.
