Dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone

Dental implant surgery is a ray of hope for those who have suffered silently due to loss of teeth or damaged teeth. Restrictions on the food they once savored or problems appearing in public are some of the negative byproducts of tooth loss. Though there were traditional treatments that brought about momentary relief such as bridges and dentures, they were far from comfortable or long lasting. Dental implants have reversed the trend and there are a number of success stories with happy endings. One problem of tooth loss is the gradual erosion of the jawbone or deformities in the structure of the jawbone. Since dental implants are placed on the jaw bone, the lack of bone can be a hindrance. However, the good news is that today it is possible to have dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone.

There is a two-way relation between dental implants and jawbone. Just like jawbone is required to place the implants, similarly dental implants support the jawbone and prevent them from decaying. Thus dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone will in the long term protect the jawbone, preserve it and prevent further deformities. Once you schedule an appointment with the surgeon a 3D CT scan will determine the jawbone density and the doctor will decide whether you require grafting or surgery for bone restoration. You have to wait for a few months before implants can be placed and finally the restoration cap attached to the dentures.

The jawbone requires stimulation in order to maintain its shape, structure and stability. Often it receives this stimulation from the tooth itself. Thus loss of tooth or teeth alters the balance and causes the jawbone density and its height to reduce. Those who are without any teeth are mostly likely to face jawbone structural problems. In order to place the dental implants, the bone has to be restored or regrown without which the surgery will not be successful. There are ways to preserve the decaying jawbone to conduct dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone. One way is through grafting. The specialists graft the bone into extraction sockets so that the bone has the necessary volume and density for the implants to be placed.

One other way of restoring the lost bone is through a surgery. An oral surgeon uses surgical procedure to help regenerate the jawbone. Once that is done they can schedule a date for dental implants. Thus dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone is no longer a distant dream. Another procedure through which dental implants can be successfully placed is through the All-On-Four technique where a number of teeth are placed using 4 implants that are secured using bridges. Lack of jawbone does make the case complicated but, there is no reason why desired results cannot be achieved. The specialists can design a plan of action, using advanced medical treatments and make dental implants a possibility.

Now latest technological development has resulted in technique like basal implantology (using basal bone areas) that can be used on patients who totally lack bone to also have dental implants. For many patients who do not have the bone at all to have bone graft or cannot be treated with the all on 4 which is used in jawbone can now have basal implantology.

In basal Implantology dentists used to have 8 implants for the full jaw, any Implant have is own method to be implanted due to extreme lack of bone and limit solutions. In Basal treatment dentists using 3 kinds of implants, Zygomatic implants, Trigon implants and disk implants, they developed for extreme lack of bone clinical cases. they spread better in the jaw to bear the load in a much well-distributed manner, Unlike the all-on-4 focused only on the mid jawbone, The Basal treatments are stronger and last longer.

The entire process can be completed within 10 days and would be a completely life changing experience for the patient.

Dental implantology in one day

Loss of teeth or teeth damage is not just a medical problem, many find it embarrassing and hesitate to smile or laugh in public. There are traditional dental solutions such as dentures or bridges but none of these are long lasting and require a lot of maintenance. A better alternative is dental implantology which is more popular today because the procedure has a high success rate, it is safe and can prove to be a permanent solution that can last you a lifetime. The entire procedure usually takes a few sittings spread over a couple of weeks and that depends on the number of teeth implants. However, medical science has advanced so much so that today dental implantology within one single day can be achieved with a little preplanning. Dental implants, though effective, used to be time consuming because the process involved tooth examination, scheduling appointments for implants and giving it a few months before restorative supports could be installed. Making the rounds of dentist’s chamber every other day can be a hassle and it also proved to be expensive. But now, dental implantology in one day proves to be a better option because only in one sitting healthy teeth will be yours and that too for the lifetime. Once you consult the doctor about dental implants, the specialist and the team would use advanced 3D CT scan and virtual software to design the implantology procedure. The accurate mapping of the implants and restoration before the scheduled session saves up on time.The highly sophisticated 3D imaging technology coupled with a technique called ‘all on four,’ makes it easy and convenient to replace lost tooth in no time. ‘All on four’ means the entire set of teeth can be placed in the jaw bone using only 4 implants and unlike dentures that are uncomfortable and limiting in scope, the implants are just like normal teeth. You can brush, floss and eat all you like without having to fear that it may come off. Dental implantology in one day sounds nothing less than a medical miracle. What used to take about a few months to almost a year can now be done in less than 4 hours. The bridges are placed on the 4 implants that are tactfully inserted within the jaw bone.The placement and setting of the dentures into the jaw bone is the real challenge and the success of implants depends on this but, trained dental implant specialists can do this with little chances of failure. An efficient dental implant team under one roof is a great advantage because unlike traditional implants that required you to visit the surgeon, the dental lab for CT scan, the dental implantology specialist and finally the prosthodontist, the more modern approach is all-encompassing and saves on both time and money. The team of specialists will be with you since the day of consultation to the day of the implant surgery and will assist you during post-surgery checkups to see that you are recovering well. Advancement in medical facility and increased expertise of the specialists have both made dental implantology in one day an easy possibility.

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”.
