- Film inspection
After 3 months of missing teeth or tooth extraction, you can go to the hospital to take dental radiographs and perform an intraoral examination. At this time, the alveolar bone and gums are in a relatively stable state, which is more suitable for implantation.
Before the implant surgery, it is necessary to perform a panoramic film, oral CBCT examination, blood drawing, and other inspections. Different intraoral conditions and physical conditions are suitable for different implantation surgery plans, the difficulty of the surgery is different, the success rate of the implantation surgery is also different, and the price of dental implants is also different. It is not the same, so it is necessary to come to the hospital for an examination first, and confirming the plan with the doctor is the first step of the implant surgery.
- Implantation of implants
After the inspection, the doctor will tell you whether it is suitable for dental implants. If it can be done, an implant plan will be given, and the implant will be implanted at the time of the appointment for the implant surgery.
Implant placement is to place the implant into the alveolar bone of the edentulous area, and then suture, and the suture can be removed about 10 days after the operation.
- Waiting for implant osseointegration
After the sutures are removed, it is necessary to wait for the implant to osseointegrate. The implant needs to be closely combined with the alveolar bone so that the implant can perform the masticatory function more stably. Generally, the process of osseointegration takes 4-6 months, and after 4-6 months, the second-stage operation is performed.
The second-stage operation involves implanting the abutment and burying the abutment on the implanted nail. After the second-stage operation, wait for about two weeks, and the gums will grow according to the shape of the abutment.
Fourth, take the model
The impression is the meaning of the dental mold so that the implant is closer to the real tooth, and the dental implant model is more accurate than other impressions. After the mold is taken, the hospital will process the model. Generally, it takes about three weeks before you can wear your teeth.
Five, wearing teeth
After the dental model is processed, the doctor gets the crown and checks that there is no problem, then the patient can be arranged to wear permanent teeth. After wearing the teeth, the doctor will also adjust the grinding appropriately to ensure that the patient’s teeth fit better and are more comfortable.
The follow-up visit for dental implants is generally 3-6 months, and the general hospital will remind the patient of the time for the follow-up visit. It is worth noting that dental implants are not done once and for all, they also need to be well maintained and brushed carefully.
A dentist’s use of a multi-functional implant handpiece is a factor to make treatment successful, the implant handpiece’s reduction speed in 20:1 is much favored by many dentists.
