Dental implantology

Loss of teeth may be the result of tooth decay, gum disease, erosion, a congenital defect, a failed dental treatment or a trauma caused to the mouth. A situation in which a person suffers from missing teeth may adversely affect the chewing ability, the talking ability and the person’s facial appearance. Consequently, the person’s self-confidence and ability to conduct himself naturally and freely are impaired.

Dental implantology provides a functional and esthetic, permanent and immediate solution. While in the past the solution for a missing tooth or several missing teeth was a bridge or removable dentures, nowadays, a treatment by means of dental implants is increasingly more common, since the use of implants provides a more durable solution than the other rehabilitation methods.

In addition to implants as a solution for loss of teeth, in many cases using them in the course of other rehabilitation processes allows to achieve better results. For instance, dental implants serve for supporting crowns, which replace missing teeth or supporting the bridge, which replaces missing teeth.

An implant is a metal screw generally made of titanium. It serves as a substitute for the natural teeth root thus assisting in mouth rehabilitation. Dental implantology restores the patients’ chewing ability, improves their esthetic appearance thus contributing to their self-confidence.

The most significant advantage of a treatment by means of dental implants as against other treatments, such as a bridge, is the fact that it is performed regardless of the condition of the other teeth. An additional advantage is often expressed in the possibility to carry out tooth extraction and implantology on the same day. Moreover, when the implants are sufficiently stable, it is possible to install instantly onto them a structure and a crown at the same treatment.

Furthermore, it is important to understand that, in terms of functionality, dentures provide a solution only to chewing. However, the use of dental implants allows also the preservation of the jawbone, since they assist in transferring the chewing forces to the jawbone thus helping to preserve its strength and stability over time.

To ensure the dental implantology treatment success there is need to examine the anatomic structure of the patient’s jaw, and on this basis to decide what the capability of loading the implants is, which optimal results can be obtained, and in what way. The doctor should decide, based on the patient’s jaw conditions, which implantology method is desirable, what should the implant’s measures be (its length and width), where it should be placed and in what angle to load it.

Most types of dental implantation treatments are suitable only if the jaw conditions allows the absorption of dental implants. Nevertheless, there are cases in which patients are lacking bone or have a bone, which is too thin for ordinary dental implantology. The Basal Implantology Center specializes in treating such cases, and is, in fact, able to offer and adjust the best solution of each patient, even for patients inflicted with lack of bone. In such cases, the center offers Basal implantology, dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone, without sinus lifting and bone transplantation.

The staff of specialists at the Basal Implantology Center holds extensive experience and very high success percentages in dental implantology treatments. We are very strict about professional service, which includes meticulous monitoring of the patient’s condition also in the long term after the end of the treatment.

Fear of dental treatment

Are you afraid of dental treatment?

In case you wondered, you are not alone. Many people and patients are afraid of dental treatment. Many studies show that the rate of people, who are afraid of the treatment ranges between 9% – 25% of the population. In dentistry, this fear is called “Dental Phobia”.

In the United States there are already more than 30 million people, and in Israel about one million people who are afraid of dental care.

In this situation, people arrive at the dentist after the mouth and teeth condition has deteriorated to a point where the pain is so fierce that the person has no choice but to get treatment.

Actually, an ever-lasting vicious circle is created. A person, who is afraid of a visit to the dentist for fear of pain, reaches the dental care only after suffering pain and inflammation.

When the patient arrives, he is very tense and in this situation, the dentist’s chances to help him overcome the tension are very low. If the dentist causes some pain, the patients will already enter a state of defense and fear, telling himself, “I knew it. I knew that dental care is painful and I will never return for dental treatment!” Thus, the patient will continue neglecting his mouth, and once again, the situation will continue deteriorating. If the patient had come for dental treatment before the pain and inflammation developed and before tooth lose or fall, the doctor could have easily helped him in advance, and prevented the development of pain. Other people reach a situation of losing their teeth or their teeth fall out due to negligence, and then they find it hard to chew food as well as to smile.

Studies show that people’s fear stems from three major things:

  1. Local anesthetic injection.
  2. The drilling noise.
  3. Chances of pain during the treatment.

There are additional factors, but those are the major ones.

How is it possible that some of the people arrive at the dentist for dental care or dental implantology as if nothing happened, and other must be dragged to the chair since they tremble with fear, does the fear arise from some kind of a childhood trauma? Do we invent the pain during the treatment?

Most of our senses absorption comes from the facial area. The sense of hearing, sense of smell, sense of sight and are concentrated in the facial area. In addition, if we divide our brain according to the zones of sensation, we will find out that a third of the body sensation arrives from the hands, an additional third from the rest of the body, and the last third from the mouth and lips area.

When the dentist approaches us and blocks all the patient’s reception areas, it is an even more frightening feeling, and in addition the dentist arrives with noisy tools and uses them inside out mouth.

Some people refuse to sit on the patient’s seat but these are extreme cases.

Remember! Tell the doctor how you feel. Stress relief and relaxation are the best way to undergo treatment without pain. When you are stressed or scared automatically you are not relaxed, the nerves and the muscles contract and it is very hard for the doctor to provide the treatment in a good and painless manner. The chances that you will be in more pain is when you are extremely stressed.

The scariest thing is when you are being intimidated…

If you need dental implantology and your friends suddenly tell you stories about people whose treatment did not succeed, mildly said, and apparently, when one treatment is unsuccessful everyone remembers it. However, the absurd is that such exceptional cases hardly ever happen, but they still echo in our minds.

Always remember to have your dental care at a dentist with this expertise. For example, if you need a dental implantology and you have no jawbone, the professional name for this case is bone-missing implantology, and here is a great difference between an ordinary dental implantation and dental implantology for bone-missing patients.

Most of the dental implantation treatments for bone-missing patients at an ordinary dentist are:

bone construction or sinus lifting that in itself lasts at least a six-month waiting, followed by dental implants and then more time of prosthodontics which takes between one and several months, and then measurements for crowns, testing the crowns in the patient’s mouth, and finally pasting them permanently. This treatment is considered one of the longest ones in dentistry, which takes around one year, requires many appointments and many dentist’s ‘chair’ hours.

Dental implantology for bone-missing patients at a specialist dentist can offer:

a Basal implantology for bone-missing patients when the treatment lasts between one and two weeks (7-14 days). Yes, you read it correctly. Within a fortnight, a patient may eat steaks or crack nuts. The treatment is, in fact, a little more expensive but is worthwhile compared to all the pain and suffering endured in a dental implantology provided by a doctor lacking the abovementioned knowledge and experience.

At our Implantology Center for bone-missing patients, you may find experts for dental care under general anesthesia in order to overcome the fear of dental care called Dental Phobia.

An additional thing that may be very frightening is lack of certainty regarding the type of treatment the way it is going to be performed. When a person does not know where he is heading all the questions remain in his head, for example:

What is the full process? Which stages are going to be performed? How long does the treatment last? What are the side effects and what do I do against it? What is the final result and what does it contribute to me?

When the patients feels secure enough and knows exactly what the treatment is going to be like they will feel confident enough to undergo it.

Do not hesitate to ask the dentist all the details and questions you have. The dentist knows that it will help you during the treatment. The more knowledge you have the readier you will be for the treatment.

Why should the dentist make an effort so you will suffer no pain?

Dentists are human beings, and most of them are rather caring. It is important for them to help you with your dental problems, and generally also to make a living… if they hurt you, even by mistake, you will most probably never return to them, and you will definitely not send them your friends and relatives! This is the reason why a wise dentist will do everything in his power to treat you gently.

Would you like to hear another professional secret? If you sit all tensed up on the chair, your dentist senses it, and becomes tense himself. In fact, the tension that dentists sense in the course of their work is so strong that it reduces significantly their life expectancy. If the average life expectancy in the population stands at about 80 years, according to the insurance companies with dentists it is only 66 years.

A wise dentist will do everything in his power that you will not be tense; otherwise, it shortens his life…

Basal Implantology

Basal Implantology

The Basal Implantology technology does not take into account the bone condition and allows a full and rapid solution for those requiring dental implantology. There are various ways of filling the mouth with teeth, however when the options are removable teeth or a long and painful implantology, it is hard not to identify with the helplessness of those suffering from this problem. The fear that the removable teeth will loosen following a sneezing or even when talking passionately leads most patients to choose dental implantology.

With all its advantages, implantology also has quite a few disadvantages.

The most prominent one is the rigid schedule, which might last even 18 months, due to the required medical process and the risk of the implant rejection. “Today, we may announce also in Israel, the commencement of the use of an innovative method, operating partially yet successfully in the world for several years called Basal Dental Implantology“, explains Dr. Lari Sapoznikov. “This method was developed in Nice, France, already twenty years ago, by Prof. Gérard Scortecci (president of ICOI) , a dentist expert in dental implantology. Ever since the beginning of this development to date, the method has further been updated and developed to the present stage where it is definitely becoming the preferable method for treating patients requiring dental implantology”.

Dr. Lari Sapoznikov, of the leading and experienced in the country in dental implantology explains that a Periodontal disease, the leading reason for dental problems and the need for dental implantology, was defined as one of the decade diseases. “The quality of our life, the poor nutrition and the dismissive reference to medical recommendations, lead to the situation where we, the dentists, come across more and more patients, also young ones, who need dental implantology. One should understand that when explaining to a young person that from now on he will have to learn how to live with removable teeth, we actually destroy his quality of life, his social life and sometimes even his career”.

“The Basal Implantology method provides a solution almost without exception to whoever requires dental implantology. This method hardly takes into account the bone condition. In the regular implantology method, we must perform the implantology by means of screwing a bolt into the jawbone.  Because of severe periodontal problems, for many of the patients this process is not possible due to lack of bone or a bone that is too thin or weak. In the Basal Implantology method we hardly take into account the bone condition but match the implant to the jaw and not vice versa. Furthermore, not only does the prosthodontics process not resemble the process of an ordinary dental implantology, but also by using the Basal Method, we succeed in restoring the mouth within only 7 days. The patient may leave the clinic after the first treatment with a set of teeth, which although they are temporary they are fixed onto the jaw and are not removable, allowing him for the first time in a long period to eat, smile and act naturally.

The matching and the Basal implantology process is carried out at several points in the lower and/or upper jaw, where it is possible to perform a stable implantology of the plant and from them, by means of a bridge-like structure, brackets in various angles are sent, imaging the angles of the teeth in the mouth, according to the structure of the jaw. The surgical procedure in the Basal Implantology method lasts up to about 7 hours, according to the number of implantations that have to be carried out, and enables at the patient at the end of the procedure to leave with temporary teeth, when the permanent teeth will be inserted into the jaw two-three days later, according to their manufacturing time. The reason for the long treatment at that same concentrated day, in which a set of teeth is matched, is the measuring process, which takes time and requires the patient’s vigilance so he may attest to comfort or difficulty during the matching process.

The procedure is performed without general anesthesia, but use is made of numbing pills, suitable for this type of surgical procedure. The Basal Implantology method is, in fact, more expensive by 25% than the ordinary dental implantology; but the long wait for teeth in the ordinary implantology method, the risk of the implant absorption quality and the possibility of its rejection along with the pain and suffering entailed therein, raise the question whether we are not talking about a much more qualitative cost effectiveness than a dry financial datum. In addition, Dr. Sapoznikov explains that the customized matching and manufacturing of the parts have a significant part in increasing the cost of the process.

“Unfortunately”, says Dr. Sapoznikov,” the method does not yet suit patients suffering from Osteoporosis or are at high risk due to severe heart conditions, however the mere great successes of restoring countless patients who believed that they would be forced to live with a closed mouth or with removable dentures, are amazing and encouraging.” Dr. Sapoznikov studied Basal Implantology after meeting the rigid admission standards of Victory Company, the representative of Prof. Scortecci, among them proving 18-20 years of experience in dental implantology and being certified in dental surgery. “The method developers are admirably meticulous about transferring the knowledge,” explains Dr. Sapoznikov. “Beyond the stringent threshold requirements and the difficult studies, the company personnel attach a team of professional that accompany and are involved in a number of implantations in order to ascertain that the process is carried out according to the special protocol and that the surgeon performing the procedure does, in fact, carry it out in the best manner”.
