“Implant teeth is a method of implantation into the jaw bone, performing a fixed porcelain crown to replace lost teeth. Implant pillars are made from Titanium material, ensuring compatibility, not irritating when used”
THE PERFECT METHOD OF RESTORATION FOR TOOTHLESS PEOPLE
1.What is Dental Implant?
As we know them today, was invented in 1952 by a Swedish orthopedic surgeon named Per-Ingvar Brånemark. Today, they are considered the standard of catering care for teeth lost in dentistry. Implantation is a surgical fixation placed in the jaw bone and allowed to merge with the bone over a period of several months. Dental implants play a role in replacing the root of the lost tooth. In turn, this “artificial root” has the role of holding a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implantation merges with the jawbone is the closest thing to imitating natural teeth as it stands on its own without affecting neighboring and highly stable teeth.
The process of ingesting implant teeth and jawbone is called “bone integration”. Most implant planting materials are made of titanium, which allows them to integrate with bones without being recognized as foreign objects in our body. Over time, technology and science have evolved to significantly improve the results of the placement of dental implants. Today, the success rate of dental implants is almost 98%.
2. Who should perform dental implant?
A dental implant is in pronunciation for any case of tooth loss that wants to be restored, ensuring almost real teeth function and aesthetics, meet the following conditions:
- Elderly people with dental diseases such as periodontal inflammation, bone digestion in the teeth,…
- People who lose one/more/whole teeth due to sports, traffic accidents or strong bumps – Congenital tooth deficiency.
- Customers who have done implant planting at other dental facilities, after a period of use, has difficulties in chewing, being eliminated or their implant dental doesn’t look aesthetically pleasing, should be replaced by high-end implant pillars at Chingo.
Chingo dentist also noted that in cases such as chronic tooth wear, diseases such as diabetes, cancer, or habitual addiction to beer, alcohol, tobacco,… dentists will offer other options suitable for each customer’s condition.
3. Advantages of implant planting compared to other denture methods
Implant teeth act like natural teeth
One of the biggest advantages of implant implantation is that it restores full chewing power. Most patients cannot distinguish the difference between natural teeth and implanted teeth. They can eat completely normally and can also brush their teeth and take dental certificates normally.
Implants can help customers avoid gum disease
The lost tooth gap can act as a trap for food and bacteria and can lead to gum disease.
Implantation can prevent bone digestion
Where there are no teeth, the jawbone in the empty area degenerates due to not being stimulated. Without implantation in the first year of tooth loss, that bone area will lose 25% of its volume and bone digestion continues for many years. Dentures can even accelerate the process of bone loss because they often become loose, then rub against the backbone, gradually wear it out. Since the implant replaces the root of the tooth as well as the tooth, and the chewing feed is restored to normal, it provides the necessary stimulus for the natural development of the bones.
Implants keep the next teeth stable
The gap from a lost tooth can cause the nearby teeth to deviate towards the gap. This pulls your teeth out of place and can affect your bite joints, chewing ability, and appearance. It can cause interference that makes it difficult to change teeth later. A poor bite can also lead to problems with TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) and can lead to pain and headaches.
Implant teeth can last a lifetime
While a bridge can only last about 10 years or longer, dental implants can last a lifetime. The implant pillar is made from titanium and integrates with the jawbone. It is bio-compact compatible, which means that it is non-toxic and is not rejected by the body. In general, it makes a powerful replacement tooth.
Implants can prevent facial sagging and premature aging
Facial sagging can be an undesirable effect of bone consumption due to tooth loss. This is the position where the lower 1/3 of the face begins to collapse, gradually narrowing the gap between the tip of the nose and the chin. Changes can include excess wrinkles around the mouth, thinner lips, and a sharper chin, which makes this person look a lot older than his real age.
4. The most common methods of implant planting today
Planting one or more implant teeth
With lost teeth, the dentist will perform the implant plugging in the right areas of the lost teeth. Then serve by attaching the porcelain crown on top of the Implant pillar, fixed with abutment screws.
Dental implant all on
Dental implant planting is the technique of tooth planting that the doctor will plug the implant in the appropriate quantity for each customer, then perform a restoration with dentures on top.
The usual methods of implant planting are:
– Implant all on 4: Implant 4 implant pillars in a straight and inclined direction, then install the removable jaw on top.
– Implant all on 6/8: Implant 6 or 8 implant pillars into the jaw bone then make and attach porcelain jaws on top.
These are the two main methods to overcome the many customers’ loss / full teeth of many customers, especially older customers.
5. Implant pillars recommended by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)
Four most commonly used implant pillars in the world are listed as DENTIUM Implant Pillar (Korea), TEKKA KONTACT Implant Pillar (France), NOBEL BIOCARE Implant Pillar (USA), STRAUMANN SLACTIVE Implant Pillar (Switzerland)
straumann sla active
– SuperLine implant pillars are made from pure Titanium with durability and bearing, good heat resistance, not oxidized in the oral cavity.
– The integration time with the bones and surrounding tissues will take place in the shortest and more stable time than other Implant pillars.
– The connection between the Abutment screw and the Implant pillar is built with a ten-spiral structure, conical shape to create tightness. As a result, the movement of the Implant will be the highest limit, preventing bone digestion, supporting sustainable and stable dentures.
– Tekka Implant pillar is made from high-quality Titanium material. Implants are highly biocompatible, safe for gums. Tekka implants do not contain toxic substances, do not oxidize in the oral cavity.
– The twisted thread will help accelerate the integration of soft gum tissue and jaw bone, shortening the implant time to about a few weeks.
– The structure of the Tekka French Implant pillar structure is quite sophisticated, ensuring the close connection between the Implant pillar and the Abutment screw. This prevents Tekka pillars and screws from being moved, expanding, helping the porcelain crown to survive firmly, maintaining the Implant permanently over time.
– Durable, stable implant structure, compatibility, high safety for customers.
– Back-tapered coronal design: Slender implant rim, pointed top, and blade allows the doctor to adjust the implant position to guide optimal recovery and improve aesthetic results.
– High success rate of implants, highly appreciated by experts.
– Implant surface integrated with technology researched, developed, and evaluated by Straumann at the highest level
– Implant material is integrated with Zirconia for the ability to create a movement of the pillar in the jawbone and increase the sturdy strength at the highest level
– The pillar will have the same shrug as the true tooth pin
– Global warranty by barcode: all user information will be displayed on the global electronic system.

6. Implantation process according to international standards
Step 1: General examination and evaluation
First of all, your doctor will have a comprehensive examination to determine the condition of your jaw bone and give the best dental procedure. This initial assessment includes X-rays, marking, implant pillar selection, porcelain crowns to make post-implant teeth restore chewing ability as well as look as natural as possible.
Step 2: Implant and bone transplant if necessary
There are two types of dental implants: one implanted into your jaw bone and one directly under the gum contour. If your current jawbone is strong enough and thick, you may not need to have additional bone grafts. Your jawbone needs to be strong because there is a lot of pressure when you eat chewing, and you need your bones to be strong to protect that implant pillar. If your jaw needs some more bones, this bone usually comes from another area of the jawbone, away from the transplant area. You may have to let the bones heal first if you have a bone transplant before you can implant it. After the bone heals, the surgeon will implant the Implant into the jaw bone. After implantation into your jawbone, the jaw bone will begin to grow around the implant. After that, the implant will become part of your natural gum contour. This process depends on the location of each person and can take from 2 to 6 months.
Step 3. Attach the porcelain crown and finish
After the gums heal, the doctor will design the porcelain crown for you. Porcelain crowns will be attached to the Implant pillar through Abutment screws, the mounting process requires meticulousness from doctors, porcelain crowns tightly hugged, not causing a sense of entanglement for customers when chewing and living.
Step 4: Complete and schedule a regular re-examination
After implantation, the doctor will perform oral cavity cleaning as well as reschedule for re-examination for customers. Normally, the regular implant re-examination period will be every 2-4 months to check how the chewing activity of the Implant teeth takes place. In case the implant is eliminated, the doctor will also soon have a timely treatment plan, which does not cause inflammation.
7. Some frequently asked questions about implantation
Are implants popular?
Tooth loss is a common problem today. Therefore, the use of dental implants is also a common practice. There are various reasons why many people turn to implants to replace their lost teeth such as loss of teeth due to accidents, due to strong bumps, dental diseases, which can also be caused by age,…
Are implants safe?
Dentists have been using dental implants for years, and implant technology continues to grow. Nowadays, implants are only applied in large licensed hospitals and dentists due to complexity, ensuring more specialized elements than other dental methods. This is a method of growing dentures trusted by millions of customers around the world.
What are the disadvantages of Implants?
Similar to other surgical methods, the likelihood of infection, pain, and inflammation in implants is very high. However, before implantation, guests should note the lactic element of the implant room. This is important to ensure that the implant is not eliminated in the oral cavity. In addition, if the doctor cannot implant the implant because there is no one available, then you are forced to perform additional techniques such as sinus augmentation, bone grafting for absolute success.
After tooth extraction, how long can implants be implanted?
Usually, it takes about three to six months for the cavity after the extraction to heal before placing the Implant.
How long does it take for the Implant to heal after implant?
The average transplant process takes place in several steps. You can ask for more than one stage of healing. So there is a different healing period, depending on your health, the number of teeth you need to replace, and other factors. However, the healing process usually takes from six to 12 weeks.
What not to do after implantation?
First, you should not smoke. Smoking causes gum diseases and drops that cause the implant structure to weaken over time. Therefore, you should not smoke or chew tobacco. In addition, it is not recommended to apply heat to the face unless instructed by a doctor. Heat can increase swelling. Do not use straws. Doing so will put pressure on your mouth, which can dissolve the clot that is holding the wound closed, causing more bleeding and slowing down the healing process.
How much does an Implant cost?
This is a complex question because the answer will depend on the customer’s tooth condition. The cost of dental implant treatment will depend on various personal factors, including:
- Quantity, quality, and location of bones to be implanted
- The number of implant pillars you need to implant
- The number of crowns to replace
- The type of porcelain teeth that customers use
