This technique involves removing badly damaged teeth, then place implants in these areas and that same day and put a provisional fixed teeth on these implants. Obviously, if the patient is already toothless, the technique is simpler because the bone is already remodeled.
With this the patient gains in quality of life since the next day, and he can eat almost normally and smile, almost, because it is clear that he can’t make significant masticatory efforts. He will have to soft diet and inevitably he will have to spend his post-operative swelling and discomfort.
THIS PROCESS PROVIDES IMPORTANT PSYCHOLOGICAL BENEFITS.
Although this technique is proven, to carry out a rigorous study of the mouth of the patient is needed. We must assess bone quantity and quality, how to bite, smile line, anatomical relationships, etc… Once the diagnosis is made, it should be proper planning following strict protocols. We must be able to assess the outcome before you start. You can’t apply this technique to all patients. If he has infections or bone doesn’t have the appropriate requirements, should use standard protocols, first making withdrawals, wait about two months after implant placement, and then two or three months begin with the teeth ranging on these implants. If a regeneration or a bone graft is required, don’t apply this technique
BEFORE PLACING THE FINAL PROSTHESIS, IMPLANT SHOULD BE OSSEOINTEGRATED.
The teeth made on the day that are placed on these implants are fixed but are provisional because the gum and bone is remodeled and once healing is complete, will be gaps. The final prosthesis will be placed when the process of integration of bone implants and scarring of the gingiva will be finish, and this new and definitive prosthesis will be done with other design and other high quality materials.
