It has been more than 40 years since the placement of dental implants for the rehabilitation of fixed teeth became one of the most frequent and common procedures in daily practice. This is why oral implantology has progressively become the method of choice in oral rehabilitation. Dr. Garcia Lozada, an expert in dentistry, talks about these techniques.
However, there are a large number of patients who do not have the bone characteristics necessary for proper placement. The reason? The loss of bone over time both in height and width (bone atrophies) with multifactorial origin, which represents a series of unfavorable conditions at the time of implant treatment. In these cases it is necessary the knowledge, advanced training and experience to perform surgical techniques of advanced oral implantology that make possible the placement of implants and allow these patients to carry fixed teeth, no matter how complicated the particular case may be.
In this sense, advanced oral implantology allows in these cases in which the placement of dental implants is complex, to solve it in a predictable and successful way, allowing the patient to carry fixed teeth through implants.
Surgical techniques of advanced oral implantology
The surgical techniques of advanced oral implantology to be performed to solve these various problems of bone loss will depend on each particular case and the degree or level of bone loss, either in the maxilla or in the mandible, as well as whether immediate loading (provisional immediate fixed teeth) is considered or not.
Within these surgical techniques of advanced oral implantology we find procedures using bone grafts or procedures without the need to use them.
Without using bone grafts we have:
- Zygomatic implants
- Pterygoid implants
- Inclined Implants
- Maxillary ridge expansion
- Lateralization of the dental nerve
- Oblique implants to the dental nerve
- Alveolar Bone Distraction
Using bone grafts:
- Maxillary bone reconstructions with the patient’s own grafts.
- Guided bone regeneration
- Maxillary sinus elevation
- Nostril elevation
For all these reasons, Advanced Oral Implantology allows us to provide solutions to the most complex cases where the lack of bone is no longer an impediment for patients to have fixed teeth with implants. At the same time, the techniques described above combined with the use of new technologies, programming software, biotechnological scanners, digital design and other virtual planning tools, are a great evolution and news for all patients with this type of limitations.
