When dental implantation is necessary?
Implantation is necessary if native teeth are lost due to disease or mechanical damage, which negatively affects a person’s confidence during communication, creates discomfort
The absence of one or more teeth can lead to problems with chewing food and malocclusion formation
Missing teeth increases the occlusal load on other teeth, so they quickly wear out, and this leads to other diseases and even tooth loss
A few things about implants
Dental implant – is a tooth root analogue. It is made of a special titanium alloy, with which our hard tissue has an absolute biocompatibility. Therefore, the implant survival is 99.6%. The very procedure of the implant placement is performed by a dental surgeon after careful treatment planning based on the analysis of computer tomogram data and other diagnostic procedures. The implant placed is overgrown with hard tissue for 3-6 months (endured). The implant adherent to the bone tissue is first built up with the so-called abutment, and then a crown is fixed on the abutment. The crown completely restores the function and aesthetics of the lost tooth.
We have the best implants
Around 300 different implant systems have been registered worldwide. However, it is possible to outline some systems that are rich in their history, traditions, scientific research, developments and unsurpassed quality standards. Our clinic works with two main systems: 1) the Swiss Nobel Biocare system, which for more than 50 years since the discovery of this treatment method has been offering the most advanced and innovative solutions in implantology; 2) the German Impro Implantem system, manufactured by Helmut Klingel GmbH, which began its operation in 1986
The best implant crown
There are several options for restoring the implant survived. First of all, there is a difference in the abutments (the agent for the implant restoration). Currently best available abutments are individual zirconium abutments. First, they completely restore function and perfect aesthetics, and secondly, are biocompatible, since zirconium prevents the plaque formation on its surface. With regard to the crown, the zirconium abutment is best suited for a zirconium crown. It has the same excellent aesthetic characteristics and prevents the plaque formation on its surface.
Stages of work with patients on the dental implant placement
Diagnosis and treatment planning
At this stage, prosthetics and implantation in the area of missing teeth are planned based on the 3D model.
The implant is placed immediately or after a short time after the tooth extraction. The period of complete wound healing after surgery is an average of 2 weeks
In 3-6 months, the implant will survive. Following that, the abutment is screwed into the implant. It is to abutment that the crown is attached. The crown restores the lost tooth

Implantation systems in “Dental Profi”
Currently, the implantation is a very popular method of restoring lost teeth in the dental service market. Due to the high competition, many clinics try to offer the lowest possible price, which cannot but affect the savings in materials, equipment, components, etc. Of course, this all leads to unsuccessful results: implant failure both during surviving, and after some time after the crown placement.
The implant survival rate is 99.6%, which indicates a more than successful outcome. The implantation method is a technologically complicated procedure, requiring considerable time, energy and finance from the patient. Minor savings and the use of budgetary treatment options can ultimately lead to failure. We recommend using the most modern implantation techniques, which will give you the opportunity to use your new tooth all your life.
Interesting and useful information
Preparation for implantation
Over time, if nothing is done to restore it, then the bone tissue will gradually atrophy (decrease), and there are various kinds of dental deformity in the form of teeth protrusion, displacement, etc., because of the lack of their support. This in the future will further complicate the tooth restoration, and will require additional time and financial losses.
In case of satisfactory conditions for implantation, the implant is placed into the bone first. The procedure itself takes no more than 30-60 minutes. At the end of the operation, the implant is tightly stitched with the mucosa. In a week after the wound healing, the stitches are taken out.
Then for 4-6 months the implant “is surviving” on the upper jaw (on the underjaw for – 3 months), that is, overgrown with bone. After this, it is opened and a special healing screw is screwed into. After two weeks, the implant “building” with a special abutment and the crown placement can be performed.
Thus, implantation “on a turn-key basis” includes the implant itself, the abutment and the crown on the abutment.
Implantation in an aesthetically significant zone
Now consider the stages of the dentition restoration by implantation in an aesthetically significant zone. Suppose that there is no central incisor on the upper jaw.
With long missing tooth there is a gradual atrophy (i.e. decrease) of the jaw bone, which subsequently can affect the good aesthetic result of the implant prosthesis. The bone in the anterior part of the jaw is thin, and its restoration takes a long time and does not always have good results. Therefore, it is very important after the extraction to proceed with the implant placement, and even better, when the dental implantation is performed simultaneously with the removal of the tooth (under the necessary conditions).
In the presence of conditions for implantation, which is most often associated with the presence of sufficient bone tissue, an implantation is performed. Very often, especially with dental injuries, the implantation procedure is carried out simultaneously with the removal of the tooth. This allows preserving the “precious” bone, and therefore getting a good aesthetic result after prosthetics. Depending on the situation, the implant is either tightly stitched with the gingival mucosa, or immediately a temporary crown is attached. After the wound healing (usually 7-10 days) the stitches are taken out.
After the implant surviving (after 4-6 months on the upper jaw, after 3 months – on the lower jaw), the prosthetics procedure can be started. Under the traditional technique, prosthetics on the implant completes with the manufacture of a porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crown on a standard or individual titanium abutment.
However, in this case, it is not always possible to perform aesthetic restoration. In the anterior part the gum mucosa is often very thin. Therefore, very often the metallic abutment shines through the thin gum. The porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crown also does not allow transferring all the aesthetic parameters inherent in native teeth.
In the Mitino “DentAl Profi” clinic in after implantation, the metal-free constructions are used for prosthetics. These include zirconium oxide and lithium disilicate. These materials can be manufactured in different shades of white, which will make it possible to create an aesthetic design. Metal-free crowns, due to their optical properties, accurately provide all the aesthetic parameters inherent in native teeth. Dental implantation in the “DentAl Profi” clinic in Mitino is carried out proceeding from the highest aesthetic requirements of our patients.
