One-phase implant based full bridge - Oral rehabilitation

One-phase implant based full bridge – Oral rehabilitation

One-phase implant-based full bridge by an experienced implantologist under general anesthesia

Before we talk about the one-phase implant-based full bridge, let us quote from a recent survey. It probably doesn’t cheer anyone up, but it’s still a fact that only 12% of the Hungarian population has all 32 natural teeth. Furthermore, we have the highest rate of neglected teeth in the EU, even though there is a solution. One of them will discuss in this article.

Dentistry has undergone tremendous development in the past 50 years, and one of the most significant results of this development is the dental implant. Whether one, several, or many teeth are missing, lost teeth should be replaced as soon as possible, primarily to maintain optimal chewing function. We have good news for those suffering for many years due to their teeth being in poor condition, practically no longer suitable for dental care.

What kind of dental implants are there?
There are many types of dental implants; two are popular in Hungary. One is the traditional two-phase implant; the other is the immediate loading one-phase implant. Although both implants serve the same purpose and are perfectly suitable for replacing missing teeth, there is a rather significant difference between them. There is a lot of information about these differences on our website. In this paper, we deal with the one-phase immediately loadable implant and, with one of its applications, the whole bridge with a one-phase implant.

What does oral rehabilitation mean?
We speak of oral rehabilitation when no single tooth in the oral cavity is suitable for dental care. When oral rehabilitation takes place, very often, there are still teeth, even 10-12 teeth, but they are not healthy, or their arrangement is such that they are not suitable for fixing a full bridge. Oral rehabilitation is possible in a traditional way, or it can be an implant-based full bridge. The latter is possible with a two-phase or one-phase implant.

What does full bridge mean?
In traditional dentistry, we speak of a bridge when replacing one or several teeth; the existing healthy teeth are used to fix the artificial tooth. A full bridge or, in other words, a full set of teeth means that a complete set of artificial teeth is made, which they fix on the gums. In the case of implant-based tooth replacement, the implants do not need to use the existing healthy teeth to attach the denture because this task is performed flawlessly.

What is a full bridge with a One-phase implant?
The one-phase implant-based full bridge is the best dental replacement solution known today! Modern bridges use materials that closely resemble natural teeth. That makes it possible to create fixed bridges that look almost as real as natural teeth. In addition to being durable, these realistic bridges are easy to maintain.

How is a one-phase implant-based full bridge treatment performed under anesthesia? The treatment consists of two parts. For the first time, the implantation of immediate loading implants and the preparation of a long-term temporary denture take place, and the preparation of the permanent denture in the second.

First time
– Free personal consultation with the implantologist.
– Making CT and panoramic x-rays.
– Thorough examination of the oral cavity, with particular regard to the state of the bones.
– Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia.
– General anesthesia.
– Removal of teeth unsuitable for further dental care.
– Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation.
– Implantation of one-phase implants.
– Sampling for long-term temporary dentures.
– Preparation of long-term temporary dentures.
– Fixation of the long-term temporary denture on the implanted one-phase implants.
– The necessary control tests.

The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient. It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second time, but we recommend making the permanent denture within a year.

Second occasion
– Personal consultation with the implantologist performed the implant placement.
– Panoramic X-ray recording.
– Oral cavity examination, with particular attention to implanted implants.
– Sampling for the permanent denture.
– Preparation of the final porcelain denture. The permanent denture is fixed and not movable by the patient, just as the long-term temporary denture could not be.
– The necessary control tests.

Why is it necessary to carry out a one-phase implant-based full bridge under general anesthesia?
Almost all dental treatments are performable with local anesthesia, including implant placement. However, there are cases when the intervention must occur with general anesthesia. That is also the case with the one-phase implant-based full bridge. Replacing one or several teeth with a one-phase implant is almost always performed under local anesthesia. In such a situation, effective pain relief is possible even without general anesthesia because it is a shorter time and a specific smaller area.

The situation is different if the intervention affects the entire oral cavity over a more extended period, such as in the case of oral rehabilitation. General anesthesia is necessary for two main reasons

The entire oral cavity is affected. In the case of oral rehabilitation with a one-phase implant, the whole oral cavity is involved, including the upper, lower, or both teeth and jawbones. It is such a large area that inadequate pain relief is impossible with local anesthesia. However, from the point of view of the implantation’s success and the patient’s sense of comfort, complete painlessness is very important.

A long-term intervention. The second reason why the treatment of a one-phase implant-based full bridge must perform under general anesthesia is that it is a relatively long-term intervention. The long time can be four hours or even longer in the case of complete bridge oral rehabilitation. Effective pain relief is not possible for such a long time with local anesthesia. The price of the general anesthesia is included in the implantation package price.

In our article on the topic of a one-phase implant-based full bridge, we explained what oral rehabilitation means and how it is possible, and what the difference is between oral rehabilitation carried out traditionally and one-phase implant-based. We talked about the process of making an implant-based full bridge and, finally, why it is necessary to carry out the intervention under general anesthesia.
