About OsseoFuse 1 Drill Implants

Friday, May 1st, 2020

Implants in clinical dentistry are a long-standing solution for improving the lives and oral health of countless patients. Highly effective and often the best chance to restore natural feeling and function to a mouth, they’ve been a top choice for oral surgeons across the field for years. The technology behind them hasn’t remained stagnant, however, and new developments make the latest versions ever more effective, comfortable.

Currently, a leading choice on the market is the OsseoFuse 1-Drill implant. This innovative solution helps surgeons streamline the process without sacrificing great results for their patients. They stand out among other implants in clinical dentistry for several key factors that contribute to their popularity and success.

OsseoFuse Strengths

OsseoFuse is a trusted industry brand, and its solutions are trusted for a reason. They continuously strive to improve the process of placing implants for all parties involved. Their focus on ease and simplicity helps to mitigate the off-putting complexity of the operation, something that makes it much more approachable for many patients. Let’s take a look at three key advantages OsseoFuse touts in their implant products:

Simplicity — One-piece implants work well because they simplify and unify the dental procedure. Usually, this means less chair time and less invasive surgeries with the same trusted results as other implants in clinical dentistry.

Compatibility — OsseoFuse designs their implants to work along a standard, compatible line. This allows surgeons to be more flexible during restorative treatment, applying the right solution for their patients without overcomplicating the procedure.

Predictability — Backed by scientific research and designed with control in mind, these creations make operations more predictable. That means less stress for the patient and more reliable outcomes overall.

Of course, there’s much more to implant dentistry than any one brand. To learn more about current innovations, explore the research available in our extensive research journal.

Surgical Planning Using 3D Printed Models

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

Oral surgeries are never simple. They take precise execution enabled by intensive planning. That second part, though, entails a whole set of its own challenges. Especially in patients with significant bone loss, getting the grafts needed to successfully place implants is notoriously tricky. With new explorations from our journal of clinical dentistry, however, developing technologies might pose a simpler and less risky option for surgeons.

3D printing, still rocketing forward after only a few years on the open market, finds new uses in industries of all kinds. It is already found a home in dentistry, with labs using the process to craft dentures and other prosthetics with high personalization and low turnaround times. But as professionals and researchers explore new possibilities, even more possibilities become apparent. One of the most interesting and potentially helpful is creating 3D models for surgical planning.

Encouraging Patient Success

All surgical planning has the same basic goal: reduce risks by giving the surgeon a good idea of the necessary steps to take in an actual procedure. 3D printing, as explored in recent journal of clinical dentistry research, is particularly promising here. It provides an extremely accurate jaw model for use in the planning process. Instead of working from rough approximations, the surgeon can utilize a near-exact replication of the patient’s jaw to predict potential challenges and solutions.

This is great for all parties since it improves confidence going into the operation for both the patient and the professional. Though the full value of 3D modeling is still a subject of research, the promise can’t be ignored in a world where better dentistry can create better lives for countless individuals.

Information on the Immediate Implant Placement Technique

Monday, April 27th, 2020

Prosthetic replacement of teeth aims to restore the original function of missing teeth while remaining consistent with a subject’s natural dentition. Given advances in prosthodontics, the replacement of teeth has become a near-routine procedure in the field of restorative dentistry.

One of the primary challenges of tooth replacement is ensuring implants are compatible with existing gum tissue. With the popularity of endosteal dental implants, it has become increasingly important to preserve the alveolar ridge. In these instances, the immediate implant placement technique shows promise in implant procedures.

Endosteal dental implants require the preservation of a dental socket. The problem with delayed treatment is that the alveolar ridge has time to fill. As a consequence, placing the implant becomes more difficult, the longer a patient waits for treatment. The immediate implant placement technique aims to place a new implant before the resorption of the alveolar ridge occurs.

Immediate implant placement occurs after an osteotomy procedure. After the old tooth is extracted, particulate bone graft materials and the new implant are placed into the extraction socket. The bone graft materials provide sufficient tissue to anchor the implant.

A key advantage of the immediate placement technique is that it shortens the timelines for the restoration of a tooth. This requires fewer visits from the patient, and it also increases the likelihood that the patient’s alveolar ridge will accept the bone graft tissue. As a result, the chances for a successful implant procedure increase.

The immediate implant placement technique does have limitations, however. It is only recommended to utilize this procedure if the space between the socket walls and the implant is relatively small. The larger the space between the socket walls and the implant, the less stable the implant site will be. If the extraction socket is nearly intact or completely intact, immediate placement is highly recommended.

Thoughts on Guided Implant Surgery

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

By harnessing any advances in procedure, technique, and equipment, we, as dental professionals, can offer the best treatments possible to our patients. Guided implant surgery is an example that we’ll discuss here.

This is a proven technique for implants in clinical dentistry that uses both implant planning software along with CT images to craft a surgery plan. It is much more effective than using conventional panoramic x-rays to design the implant surgery. These x-rays do not allow for the exact transfer of the plan as efficaciously as one crafted using a CT scan.

Surgical guides have been proven to dramatically reduce the risks and length of dental implant surgery. Time is significantly reduced per implant, as this procedure is clinically more predictable than unguided implants.

Studies on these implants in clinical dentistry have shown long-term success, which can be attributed to accurate planning and precise placement of the implant itself. Correct placement has many benefits for the patient, including favorable esthetic and prosthetic results. It also increases the potential of optimal occlusion and implant loading, whereas minor placement variations can lead to difficulties in the fabrication of final prostheses.

Guided implants may cost a bit more as compared to traditional implant surgery, and the pre-surgical planning time is increased, but the benefits for the patient make it time well spent.

The Benefits of Using the Immediate Implant Placement Technique

Thursday, April 16th, 2020

When a dentist brings up dental implants with a patient, the red flags start to fly. Even when patients are aware of the inevitability of implants, it can still be a scary process. One of the first questions they ask is, “How long will this take?” Regardless of the procedure, that’s a primary concern for anyone with a busy schedule.

It’s certainly understandable as many patients have to take time away from work for clinic visits. Others like to anticipate how long the healing process will be so they can adjust their activities as required, if applicable.

The main benefit of immediate implant placement technique addresses this concern in a practical fashion. During this procedure, the implant is placed in the socket immediately after a tooth extraction. By combining what was once two different procedures, the immediate implant helps avoid crestal bone loss that is usually experienced with tooth loss and shortens the healing time since there’s no missing space for the gums to heal around.

Even better, this procedure doesn’t require numerous visits with the patient. Studies have shown that patients prefer this method for that reason alone. Further long-term studies also back it up as having very high cumulative implant survival rates, nearing 100%.

The immediate implant placement technique benefits the dental clinic as well. It simplifies surgical workflow and allows for more patients to be seen and costs less to perform. Plus, it’ll make the clinic far more popular with patients overall.

Dental Implants and Sinus Perforation

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Oral surgeons and dentists who specialize in restoration dentistry understand that implants are a key procedure in their field. As such, they must also be cognizant of the complications that might arise from surgical procedures. One of the biggest concerns revolves around sinus membrane perforation.

The sinuses are the air spaces found in the hollow parts of the facial bones. Most of the sinus tissue is located around the nose or under the eyes. The upper jaw, particularly the back portion, is a delicate area to place dental implants. When placing an implant, there is a possibility of the post to puncture the bone and affect the sinus area.

A sinus membrane perforation can compromise the stability of a dental implant. On top of that, a collection of other complications may occur. Among the most common is a sinus infection, which causes irritation and problems with a patient’s sense of smell. Perforated sinuses directly affect the dental implant, which can cause it to become loose.

Several procedures may be employed to minimize the risk of a sinus perforation. One such method is the sinus lift, which grafts bone near the upper jaw to stabilize the location of the dental implant. Sinus augmentation surgery can take anywhere between four and twelve months to develop, which can lengthen the overall treatment period for dental implant surgery.

Oral surgeons, periodontists, and restoration dentists are at the forefront of developing new surgical techniques and interventions that improve the lives of patients. By recognizing the causes and effects of sinus membrane perforation, dentists can find ways to mitigate their impact.
