Placing one or two implants and attaching teeth to them is fairly straightforward.
When do you call it a complex dental implant treatment?
When it comes to replacing complete teeth in one or both jaws it is considered complex rehabilitation. In most long-term toothless conditions, the jaw bone shrinks to such an extent even the placement of a ten mm long implant is impossible without augmentation Surgical placement of implants in this bone can violate the nerves and associated vital structures in the bone or in the vicinity. In such cases, augmentation of bone in vertical and horizontal dimensions is needed. The bone grafts used are synthetic or even harvested from the patient body like the skull, hip, fibula chin, etc. This augmentation is most often done along with the placement of implants.
TOOTH IN AN HOUR BY NOBEL BIOCARE
This is a much-advertised procedure by a company called NOBELBIOCARE. It is misleading to the patients as the advertisement does not tell who can be considered for this procedure. Only those patients who have the right quantity and quality of bone can get this done. Any patient who needs augmentation has to have the bone augmented and then only the implants can be done.
Who can safely do this surgical procedure?
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is trained in such surgical procedures is most often doing these procedures. His surgery is best suited to do such procedures as the decorum of the clinic is planned to carry out such procedures. At Scientific Dental Clinic we have all the types of equipment that are needed for an advanced operation theater. Name few are bipolar, and monopolar diathermy to control bleeding, emergency resuscitation types of equipment, and facilities for fluid replacement. Intravenous sedation, piezoelectric bone surgery, and an anesthetist on call. All emergency medication, oxygen-delivering units, and pulse oximetry are also set up.
Any dentist who is performing this procedure should be competent in managing the complications. Placing implants or grafts near the sinus can sometimes cause oro–antral fistula, acute sinusitis, or even displacement of implants into the sinus. A dentist should get trained in such procedures so as to manage the complications possible.
Is there any need for the patient to be scared about this procedure?
All this is mentioned not to scare the patients but to mention how carefully it is planned in case of any demanding situations. Moreover, the supporting staff are trained to follow strict protocols in sterilization and assisting. At the scientific dental clinic, there are written protocols that cannot be violated in setting up the surgical room. This cockpit procedure is always done before starting the cases.
We routinely do such complex rehabilitation involving both jaws. Sinus grafting, nerve repositioning, and block bone grafting are done even as outpatient procedures. Most of the people traveling for exclusive dental treatment might need multiple implants and bone augmentation procedures. Any dental surgeon who does not do these procedures has to either compromise on the quality or discourage the patient from getting the treatment if he or she is not willing to refer the patient to the specialist centers.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION:
HOW WILL I KNOW I AM A CANDIDATE FOR COMPLEX DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT?
Why there is so much time needed for this treatment?
In the case of a clinic that does not have a dental laboratory in-house, there is more delay in work being transported from distant labs. Before placing the implants surgical stent is fabricated and this gives an idea for the surgeon to place implants in the correct locations. After extracting the teeth and placing the implants, the fabrication of temporary dentures is also time-consuming. Again depending on a distant lab is time-consuming. At the scientific dental clinic, we have an in-house dental lab where fully trained technicians are available to do the work time-bound.
