Today, almost every person who visited a dental clinic has heard about dental implantation. This procedure allows you to restore teeth lost as a result of various diseases and pathologies. There are various modern technologies that allow implantation to be carried out as quickly as possible, with a guarantee of quality and durability.
Among the most common and popular types of dental implantation among patients, there are classical and basal. In order to make the right and unmistakable choice of technology, taking into account the state of their health, it is important for each patient to understand what the difference between them is.
Classical or basal implantation - choose the optimal technology.
What are the distinguishing features of each type of implantation and what attracts patients?
- Classic implantation. The procedure consists of several stages, with a time interval between them from 3 to 6 months. At the first stage of the procedure, an implant made of a safe and neutral metal is placed in the bone tissue, after which it is allowed to take root. The doctor takes into account all the features of the structure of the gums and jaws of the patient. 2 weeks after this stage, permanent crowns are made and installed.
- Basal implantation. As part of this procedure, implants are implanted into the basal bone, the shape and size of which exactly repeat the structure of the jaw and dentition. Such implants are made of titanium, vanadium or aluminum, because these metals are able to implant into bone tissue as quickly as possible, becoming a full-fledged replacement for a lost tooth. After the implant takes root, a crown or bridge is placed on top.
Distinctive features of classical and basal implantation are:
- With basal implantation, the average period is from 3 to 7 days, and with classical implantation - 2-6 months;
- The percentage of engraftment during the classical procedure is about 95-98%, and during the basal procedure - about 70-80%;
- Rehabilitation of the patient after basal implantation takes 2-3 weeks, and after the classical procedure it may take from 4 to 6 months.
Which type of implantation is right for you, only an experienced implantologist can determine.
