One-phase dental implantation - The 4 most common use

One-phase dental implantation – The 4 most common use

What treatments are the most common use of one-phase dental implantation?

Dental implants are a globally accredited therapeutic method for missing teeth that give you back your ability to eat, smile and talk naturally without causing impediments. In recent years, the technique and the one-phase dental implantation have revolutionized and are now recommendable in combination with several procedures.

A dental implant is a titanium screw inserted in the jaw bone and replaces a missing tooth root. Since dental implant-based teeth replacements are permanent and fixed, they won’t shift or dislodge and serve as a strong foundation for a denture. The state-of-the-art 3D digital imaging and advancement in implant surgical techniques have made the procedure predictable and highly compatible. It has enabled implantologist to use these tools to analyze the jaw’s anatomy and determine the best sites for placement. Hence, a comprehensive patient assessment combined with an implant procedure helps facilitate the optimal treatment outcome. It also makes possible use of dental implants in different cases.

Several combinations are possible through implants. The four most common one-phase dental implantation is the following:

One-phase implantation for a crown
The foremost initial use of dental implants supports crowns replacing one or more missing teeth. Once an implant is attached to the jawbone, it acts as the new root for the crown. But for the procedure to work, one must have enough jaw bone tissue to support the implant.

One-phase implantation-based bridge
On the other hand, implant-supported bridges recommend restoring large spans of missing teeth and come with several advantages. The screw-retained crowns are easier to maintain and save you from cement seal and oscillation hassle. However, the functionality is similar to a traditionally supported bridge; the only difference is that implants, not natural teeth, support the bridge.

Implantation for a removable denture
Another use of one-phase dental implantations is overdenture or Snap-On denture. In this case, they attach personalized teeth to the implants. The only downside is its mechanism to connect the denture with the implant, i.e., male-female snap assembly, which has a higher failure rate than the fixed denture. That is because the stability for retention of removable dentures wears off in time.

Implantation for an implant-based complete denture
The most advanced solution for one-phase dental implantation is the implant-based complete denture. This method is a worthwhile dental procedure for a person with extensive tooth loss. It is recommended for the natural-looking outcome and is better than the previously mentioned procedure because
(a) Fixed denture on implant doesn’t require bone replacement before implantation,
(b) Eliminates problems associated with conventional denture procedures,
(c) Doesn’t require adhesive or gluing for stability,
(d) Gives wearer the utmost stability and comfort, and
(e) The procedure goes easy on the jawbone and prevents gum loss or disease.

One-phase dental implantation to support a bridge and a denture is a recent development in implant dentistry. The combination yields stability and simplicity, addresses poorly fitting problems, and is secure as natural teeth. Furthermore, a patient gains improved oral functionality and facial appearance. Above and beyond, immediate loading implants preserve the structural integrity of the jaw. Please visit our website for an expert opinion on fixed dentures on implants.
