Learn more about oral rehabilitation with immediate loading implants under general anesthesia
We offer this article primarily for those needing immediate implant-based complete dentures. Our dentistry specializes in one-phase implant-based mouth rehabilitation tooth replacement. Over the years, we have become specialists in oral rehabilitation with implants, completing more than 500 immediate-loading implant-based mouth rehabilitations. In the next section, we will tell you how, under what conditions and principles, we work, what and when oral rehabilitation is necessary, and how the intervention occurs.
Let’s start with the fact that the use of two families of implants is widespread in Hungary. One is the traditional two-phase implant, which is still used by most people today. With this implant, the implantation takes place in two phases, which is why it is called a two-phase implant. The other option is the immediate loadable implant, also known as a one-phase implant, where the implantation occurs in a single phase.
We perform oral rehabilitation with implants under general anesthesia because complete pain and discomfort-free treatment are only possible with this pain relief method. The one-phase implant implantation takes a few hours, and the long-term temporary denture is complete in 5 working days. That is only possible because we have the necessary expertise, practical experience, human and technical background, and even our dental laboratory. For a one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation to complete in 5-6 working days, coordinated teamwork is necessary in addition to the already mentioned. All professionals involved in the process must perform their tasks flawlessly. For example, an implantologist does a perfect job in vain if he works with a moderately skilled dental technician.
We can continue and guarantee quality work because all essential links in the system work perfectly. Oral rehabilitation with implants under general anesthesia requires coordinated teamwork and understanding that a qualified and experienced implantologist is not enough since the efficiency of a system is the same as the efficiency of the weakest link in the chain. A professional oral surgeon’s assistant, a well-equipped dental laboratory, and a qualified dental technician are also necessary for an excellent result.
In addition to those listed, one more critical condition must be met for successful implant placement. And this is the precise organization of the work process. That also depends on small things, such as the on-site dental laboratory, which means, among other things, that the dental technician can be personally present at the dental examination if necessary. It is essential because you can see the situation with your own eyes and correct it immediately or later in the dental laboratory. This simple method also speeds up the work.
And now, let’s get down to exactly how oral rehabilitation with implants takes place. When we mention an implant, we always mean a one-phase immediate loading implant!
When is oral rehabilitation necessary?
Mouth rehabilitation is necessary when no single tooth is suitable for dental treatment in the oral cavity. So, a patient can have up to 10-12 teeth; if they are not qualified to ensure long-term results, it is not worth the time and money spent. In such cases, we always recommend removing teeth that are not perfectly healthy. Mouth rehabilitation is possible in the traditional way and with dental implants.
How is oral rehabilitation with implants performed under general anesthesia?
One-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation takes place in two parts. The first part is about the implantation of the implants, and the second is about permanent denture preparation. Approximately six months should elapse between the two treatments.
The following happens the first time
– Free, personal consultation with the implantologist performing the implantation.
– CT and panoramic x-rays.
– Detailed examination of the oral cavity, particularly concerning the condition of the bones and gums.
– Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia.
– General anesthesia.
– Removal of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment.
– Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation.
– Implantation of the required number of one-phase implants.
– Sampling for a long-term temporary denture(s).
– Preparation of long-term temporary denture (s).
– Fixation of the long-term temporary denture or dentures on the implants. The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient.
– The necessary control tests.
It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second visit, but we recommend having the permanent denture(s) made within a year.
– Free personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement.
– Panoramic X-ray recording.
– Thorough examination of the oral cavity, particularly regarding the condition of the implants.
– Sampling for the permanent denture.
– Preparation of permanent porcelain denture(s). The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient, similar to the long-term temporary denture.
– The necessary control tests.
In our article, we explained how we work under what conditions and principles. We briefly talked about dental implants, what oral rehabilitation with implants is and when it is necessary, and how exactly one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia occurs in our dental clinic.
