Dental functions have been restored with implants for over 60 years. Recently, threaded implants have been gaining increased popularity (as most physiological) and their use has spread. As with all implants, it’s important to comprehensively evaluate jaw condition according to the patient’s anatomical topography data and structure. The main criterion to predicting long-term results is the selection of the implantation context and the optimally-chosen implant (based on the jaw and implant parameters).
We use threaded implants from Thommen Medical (Switzerland), which have demonstrated biological coherence to bone and soft tissues for over 30 years. The implant design, surfaces and connections ensure successful clinical practice, reliability and durability.
We thread mini-implants (1.8 to 2.4 mm in diameter) made by Dentatus (Sweden) in deteriorated jaws. Thus, elderly patients are guaranteed the quality of removable prosthesis fixation.
Usually, we implant them 4-6 months after tooth extraction (this time period is required for high-quality bone formation). Implantation immediately after tooth extraction is possible only after an assessment of bone quality and potential risks for poor healing or short functioning.
We put the prosthesis on implants in the lower jaw after 2-3 months and in the upper jaw after 3-4 months (the period necessary for the implant engraftment, the so-called osteointegration). We finalise the design of the prosthesis so that the edge leaves a space between the gums, allowing the hygienic cleaning of plaque and preventing bad breath.
