DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants have been used successfully for over 45 years in the world and since 1998 in AESTHETIC DENT clinic. Implants make possible to restore missing teeth in almost every adult patient who wants to enjoy own, permanent teeth. Treatment with implants is safe, predictable and ensure long-lasting effect.

Dental implants are small titanium screws which replace the missing tooth root. They form a basis for prosthetic crown which restore the natural tooth shape.The effect of treatment are fixed teeth providing psychological comfort to the patient while performing daily duties, without problems with eating, speaking and most of all with nice smile. Implants are "almost" accurate reflection of the teeth, therefore their use ensures a natural tooth appearance. Permanent restoration of dentition and an excellent aesthetic effect make dental implants solution of choice for more and more patients.

Dental implant treatment consists of the following phases:

1. Pre-treatment diagnostics

Before deciding about the possibility of dental implant treatment it is extremely important to collect the medical history, as well as clinical examination to confirm the absence of contraindications to implant surgery. During the first visit, the doctor obtains information about the patient's expectations, and its overall health. It is very important to collect the full history of the heart, lung, thyroid and liver diseases and the possible presence of diabetes, bleeding disorders or osteoporosis. During a conversation your dentist will ask the necessary questions about the hygienic habits of mouth and teeth.

A very important element of diagnosis prior to treatment it to examine future implant position. For this purpose, physician evaluate condition of the mucous membranes, the patient's existing teeth, and periodontinum. Another important element is the status of the patient's occlusion and so far oral hygiene.

To assess the quantity and quality of bone for implant therapy, your doctor will refer am x-rays examination (pantomogram). When dealing with extensive teeth loss, and if the patient does not have a sufficient amount of remaining bone, it is recommended to conduct CT scan. All obtianed information will allow for precise treatment planning. The patient is fully informed about the possible solutions in relation to his both functional and aesthetic expectations. It should be noted that during the treatment, patient should undergo frequent check-ups, to monitor the healing of the implantation site..

2. Preimplantation surgery

Proper implant placement requires sufficient amount of bone left after lost tooth. Unfortunately, periodontal changes, as well as those caused by osteoporosis or unprofessional teeth extractions can cause excessive bone loss, which is essential for implant placement. In this case, the patient should undergo reconstruction procedure. It can be carried out independently, or simultaneously with implant placement surgery. This treatment is performed using bone substitute materials.

3. Implantation – surgical part

Implantation step is very precise procedure requiring experience and skills. It involves carrying small holes in the bone, where implants will be placed. In such prepared site the doctor screwed implants and then covers them with gingival tissue to ensure the most natural way of healing. Implant treatment is completely painless because it is performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the quantity of the implants, surgery takes 30 minutes to two hours. After surgery, the painkillers are given to the patient to provide comfort also after visit.

After implantation healing phase follows, which lasts from 3 to 6 months. For this time, the patient receives a traditional prosthesis, which carries in the implant site to provide comfort while eating and social contacts. A very important part of the healing process is to create lasting engagement between the patient's bone and titanium implant surface. The next phase is to re-expose the implant and attach a special healing screw that extends the implant to the gum line. It is fixed to a period of several days and shapes the marginal area to form a natural appearance. At this time the complete healing of the mucous membranes follows.

The next step in treatment is to take dental impressions and create prosthetic restoration. 

4. Prosthetic reconstruction

After complete healing of the mucosa and gingiva profiling, the dentist takes an impression which will be base for dental technician to carry out prosthesis adapted to patient needs. From now on, the patient starts notice the progress of work, because each subsequent visit, brings to a desired aesthetic effect.

Once porcelain crown is ready, control of occlusal fitting must be performed. If the crown is ideally suited to the patient needs, as well as the occlussal fitting, the doctor proceeds to the cementation.

RESEARCH

Aesthetic Dent team led by Katarzynę Sporniak-Tutak is involved in a multicenter research program which brings together the most prestigious research centers from Switzerland, Austria, USA and Spain. Aesthetic  Dent Clinic is currently the only center in Poland, which conducts research on such a large scale in the field of short implants. The aim of the study is a long-term (5.5 years) functional assessment of short- implant in bony compromised conditions.

 
Thanks to changing technology of implants production to increase bone-to-implant contact, we investigate efficacy of short implants compared to standard dimensions implants. Based on the preliminary results, we expect many positive effects of the treatment. These include: reducing the need for CT scans, irradiation decrease, limitation and reduction of peri-implant advanced procedures such as bone grafting or bone reconstruction procedures. Also abridgement of treatment time and associated costs. Short implants can also be safely used in patients with systemic diseases that would hinder the process of surgery and healing.
