Duration and techniques in implantology

Depending on the nature of tooth loss and other accompanying circumstances, our highly qualified dental staff at „Angitia“ will choose the most suitable method and course of implantation for every patient to match his or hers individual needs.

Immediate implantation

Immediate implantation is the usual approach when implantation follows tooth extraction (or loss) on the same day.

During your initial visit at „Angitia“  local anesthesia will be applied replacing the lost tooth with

  • an inserted dental implant,
  • a temporary tooth on top.

The whole idea of immediate implantation is to recover a lost tooth or teeth on the same day; you can walk out of the dentist‘s office with recovered teeth, albeit temporary. This way there is no impact on your quality of life – you can keep smiling and continue with your daily life.

During your second visit at the clinic a permanent tooth with similar characteristics is attached to the implant. Since the size and shape of the lost tooth is reconstructed using computer imaging technology, we aspire to design the most suitable tooth size, ideal colour and shape for every patient.

Antrojo apsilankymo pas odontologą metu prie danties implanto pritvirtinamas nuolatinis dantukas tokios pat arba dar gražesnės išvaizdos, nei buvęs. Nes prarasto danties dydis ir forma projektuojama kompiuterinės programos pagalba, tad konkrečiam pacientui parenkamas tinkamiausias danties dydis, ideali spalva ir forma.

Immediate implantation is very efficient in comparison with traditional implantation techniques; implants are inserted on the same day, without experiencing any pain, swelling, bleeding, stitches or any other discomfort. The sensation of implantation is similar to that of dental restoration when inserting a filling.

Atraumatic implantation

Atraumatic implantation is the approach used when implants are inserted in place of formerly removed teeth, however, no incisions are made; only small holes matching the diameter of the implant are cut in the gums and an implant is inserted into the jawbone. Atraumatic implantation is different from traditional in that it doesn‘t require to make any incisions.

Atraumatic implantation cannot be described as immediate as it replaces formerly removed or lost teeth and not lost on the same day as the implantation procedure itself.

Atraumatic implantation is a very minor surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia, similar to tooth restoration or extraction. You can find more information on implantology techniques by following this link dantu-implantavimas.info.

Traditional dental implants

Traditional implanting techniques take more time and are the common approach when immediate implantation is not applicable due to the unrecovered jawbone.

Main reasons of bone loss and deterioration:

  • A formerly extracted tooth and/or deteriorated bone volume; therefore the missing bone volume has to be augmented and wait until it recovers.
  • The jawbone has to recover after dental or possible jaw trauma.
  • Unprofessional tooth extraction usually damages the wall of the jawbone.
  • A damaged tooth may cause the jawbone to suppurate; failure to see the dentist on time may cause partial deterioration of the jawbone. In all cases, you would have to wait until the jawbone fully recovers and only then implantation can follow.
