Oral Surgery for dental implants
In addition to the recommended treatment, oral surgery takes also into account the prevention, study, diagnosis and rehabilitation of dental pathologies. Interventions of this kind are indicated, for instance, for the removal of wisdom teeth or molars, soothing the problems that these pose for your dental health.
Oral surgery is also the treatment with regards to problems in the oral mucosa, to treat disorders such as the lingual frenulum, or the removal of benign cysts.
In this section we will talk about oral surgery that deals with the replacement of missing teeth with the placement of dental implants. There are 3 oral surgery techniques, the decision of which one to use during the procedure will be decided by the surgeon. The technique by which it is decided has no influence over the usual clinical results.
- Computer guided surgery
- Computer navigated surgery
Conventional oral surgery
- This technique is normally used to place dental implants in boneless patients or for patients with poor quality available bone. This technique begins with a precise cut at the midpoint of the gum. This cut provides adequate visibility and access to the treatment area.
- The soft tissue is then raised to access the bone ridge.
- Bone placement and dental implants
- Gum suture. There are two types of suture, the absorbable and the non-absorbable. In case of using the non-refillable, the stitches will be removed 7 days after surgery.
Computer guided surgery
This technique is often used to place dental implants in patients with an appropriate amount of bone, especially those in need of full mouth rehabilitation. This technique is minimally invasive since the opening of the ridge is not necessary, so the post-operative recovery as well as the soft tissue damage is less.
The first step is the virtual digital planning of the surgery with the data collected during the «Data Collection Tafur» process. Next, a surgical guide is designed that will allow us to place the implants as we have planned.
In 90% of cases, provisional teeth can be placed after surgery.
This technique allows us to place dental implants without waiting for the surgical guide since the process is “live” or “navigating” directly through the planning information. In 90% of cases, temporary teeth can be placed after surgery.
Anesthesia during implant surgery
We have numerous types of anesthesia or sedation for the placement of dental implants, with the aim of desensitizing pain during surgery.
Teeth in 24 hours
We have the technology to offer you, in 90% of cases, fixed provisional teeth after surgery, while dental implants are integrated with the maxillary bone.
