Procedure of Dental Implant after Extraction of Tooth
After the removal of the tooth the body heals the cavity from which the tooth removed. To heal, there are many natural growth factors present in the blood which increases the speed of bone formations. During this time if an implant placed then the advantage of the natural healing process can made. This thought was then tested and proved true in most cases hence, immediate implant placement after extraction became an established technique in the early 2000’s.
The implant should placed at around 35 to 55 N-cm torque and a minimum of 3 mm of the natural bone should be engaged. A dental surgeon would sometimes also take help of the internal side wall of the cavity to provide additional support. 3D X-rays and CAD-CAM technology help in getting a more predictable treatment outcome. If the above criteria met then the implant can placed immediately.
Now, once the implant placed, when should the teeth be placed over them? In most cases the teeth can placed immediately over the dental implant. But in cases where the support clinically found to weaker than the dentist may suggest options like splinting with the help of neighboring teeth or not loading the teeth immediately or using SAPteethTM. SAPTeethTM are Shock Absorbable Permanent restorations which reduce the load on the dental implant by 24 to 149 times when compared with other conventional crown materials like zirconia, ceramic and metal.
