|Q.1 What treatment is an implant?
It is the treatment method of burying titanium tooth roots in toothless bones, and putting artificial teeth, such as prosthetic materials or overdentures, on the artificial tooth roots.
The dowel crown has its own tooth root, so it is crowned. In the case of an implant, a solid artificial tooth can be inserted even if the patient has no tooth roots.
No replacement is necessary. As for methods of care, daily brushing will become necessary more than at present, as in the case of your own teeth.
The upper jaw and lower jaw are left as they are for more than six months and three months, respectively, after implanting. Subsequently, a titanium abutment will be connected to the implant points. Because the mucous membrane is somewhat cut open, two to three weeks will be required to go to the next step while watching the healing condition of the mucous membrane. After that, the upper structure, i.e. teeth, will be implanted, and the related technical handling will require two to three weeks.
Depending on conditions for occlusion and the state of bones to be inserted, there may be points where implanting cannot be enforced.
We cannot say that failure will never occur. Although implanting is carried out in consideration of various conditions, there may be cases in which no integration occurs for some reasons or other.
Except for the growing age, any person is qualified if he or she satisfies conditions for surgery.
As in the case of your natural teeth, they may be broken or fall out. Prosthetic materials can be replaced if they are broken off, but the effect on inserted tooth roots depends on the degree of impact.
If teeth are inserted in the mouth of a person who has no teeth, the artificial teeth cannot be used for two to three weeks, so he or she must eat liquid food. If the person is only missing two or three teeth, the person can bite foods as usual with the remaining teeth.
If the jawbones are sufficiently thick, and if other conditions are met, it is OK.
The amount will vary, depending on the number of teeth to be implanted and the kind of prosthetic materials used. It will be explained in detail, when you come to the clinic.
Yes, there are many kinds. This clinic, however, uses Branemark System-based titanium implant materials, regarding which basic research has been conducted most frequently in the world.
They can be used for your lifetime, if they are taken care of daily, through self-brushing, etc. However, if some problems occur, please have them examined at an early date.
As teeth are implanted in bones, implanting is a surgical procedure, and as such it may be considered painful. However, patents mostly seem to feel a sense of tiring when they have to open their mouths.
It depends on the number of teeth to be implanted. For two or three teeth, time will be one to two hours. For two or three teeth on both right and left sides, the time will be two to three hours.
No, it is implemented under local anesthesia.
