Conventional implant is the first implant technique invented. These are two piece implants consisting of the root component and tooth component. Though this type of implant system is not followed in most modern clinics, this still owes to be one of the best implant system. At WE Dental center, conventional implant system is also practiced in a wide range successfully. It is cost effective, but involves more care of the teeth both during the removal of the tooth and post removal and implant care.
In this system , the implant is placed in the jaw bone and covered with a cover screw or a healing cap. A duration of minimum two to three months of waiting period is required for permanent crown fixation. This waiting period is required for the bone to adhere firmly to the implant surface thus giving a good stability. After confirming with the implant stability, the tooth component- abutment is attached and the impression is made and the crown is fixed in another three days time.
The tooth is extracted and the implant is placed immediately and the cover screw or healing cap is placed. In certain cases depending on the stability of the implant, immediate loading can also be made possible, just to avoid the waiting period. Impression is made and the crown is fixed in 2 to 3 days or after 3 – 4 months duration.
The concepts involved in full mouth implants treatment are as follows,
About four implants are placed in each jaw – upper and lower, immediately after extraction. Depending on the stability of the implant, immediate loading is done and the crowns are fixed in a weeks time or a waiting period of 3 – 4 months is given and then the impression is made for the permanent crown and fixed in three days time.
About 6 implants are placed in each jaw – upper and lower, immediately after extraction. Depending on the stability of implant, immediate loading is done and the crowns are fixed in a weeks time or a waiting period of 3 – 4 months is given and then impression is made for a permanent crown and fixed in three days time.
About 8 implants are placed per jaw with or without extraction (neither decayed nor missing teeth). Impression is made after three months time provided with good implant stability for permanent crown which are fixed in another three days time.
