Dental Implants Types

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial replacements for dental roots. Dental implant is usually manufactured from titanium or titanium alloys. The dental implant surface can be covered with different substances to increase its stability and osseointegration. There are several dental implants types, but the contemporary ones have tronconic or cylindrical shapes, the same as the natural dental root. Crowns or dental works (bridges, prosthesis, etc.) are fixed on the dental implants. Dental works on implants can be fixed or detachable (mobile).

Types of dental implants

Types of dental implants - Root shape

Root shape

Root shape dental implants are one of the most popular in the world. They may have cylindrical shapes, smooth or with spires and conical

Dental implant surface

Modern implants have the bone contact surface in rugose topography to allow bone cells to settle on and osseointegrate it, and the one in contact with gums has a smooth, shiny topography, for epithelial gum cells to adhere, sealing the space surrounding the implant’s neck. Technology has enabled the creation of rugose surfaces in several topographies (nano and micro rugosity), so that bone cells can perfectly adhere to the implant. The more rugose surface and carefully processed, the higher the dental implant quality. That because bone adheres much better and more uniform, and present rugosities increase the contact surface between implant and bone, increasing its mechanical stability initially and biological subsequently to osseointegration.

Dental implant components and types of work on implant

Dental implant treatment involves several components: implant itself, prosthetic abutment (connecting implant with the work) and dental crown.

Dental implant components

Cemented dental works on implant

Cemented dental works on implant

Dental implant defines not only the root area (replacement). One of the means through which a crown is attached to the dental implant is by cementing it on an intermediary piece (prosthetic abutment). The prosthetic abutment is screwed to the implant and the work is fixed on it using an adhesive (dental cement). It represents the perfect way to place the crown for a single dental implant and requires great caution because, during the moment of sticking, cement remains/excess can infiltrate under the gum, damaging the implant in time. Sometimes the crown can be cleaned with difficulty and can lose cement or can be lost / broken.

The second method for attaching a crown/dental work to the implant is by screwing it. Therefore, crown is directly screwed to the implant and the fixing screw access hole is covered with obturation material (filling) matching the tooth color. The advantage lies in its easy removal anytime when needed (professional hygiene, small fixes, etc.). The disadvantage lies in the fact that this tiny screw can weaken under high pressure, requiring periodic tightening with special keys, wrenches (with a precisely calibrated force couple).

Dental mini-implants

Dental mini-implants

Dental mini-implants are extremely thin implants, with limited resistance and with limited directions:

  • Narrow spaces (lateral incisors area) are the narrowest teeth inside the oral cavity – not recommended for the rest of the teeth (they can fracture),
  • Mobile dentures stabilization (mobile dentures on „over denture” implants) for the elderly, when mastication forces aren’t that high,
  • As temporary implants, for fixing temporary works until definitive implant integration or until bone addition healing when lost bone volume is restored through resorption (melting).

Transosseus implants

Transosseus implants

Although they were “sensational” in their time, these dental implants types are no longer used (blade, subperiostal) or, some of them, are used limited: “bar fixed to the bone” implants and “transosseus” ones – in case of severe bone atrophy, when patient cannot undergo bone addition.

Zygomatic implants

Represented by extremely long implants used in special situations.

Zygomatic implants

Zygomatic implants are placed in the back of the maxillary bone (superior), where maxillary sinuses reside and bone has the lowest density. The tips of these implants are anchored into the zygomatic bones (cheekbones), which maintain volume and density throughout time, even if the maxillary bone is resorbed. These implants are recommended for severe maxillary atrophies, when there is practically no bone left (in the superior maxillary) or remaining bone is in an extremely low quantity, being filled with air by exaggerated sinus volume enlargement. In this case it represents a good alternative to invasive surgery, when patient is unable or unwilling to undertake complex bone additions for lost bone volume enlargement in this region. Zygomatic implants rapidly and efficiently ensure an excellent stability in the posterior area for immediate dental works (allows immediate anchoring to fixed works).

In certain techniques, conventional implants can be successfully combined – in the frontal region we insert conventional implants and in the posterior areas we insert zygomatic implants – procedure called „TotalFix+”.

Zygomatic dental implants types

For severe maxillary atrophy conditions in all areas (including anterior) a number of two or three zygomatic implants are inserted individually yet simultaneously, in the same session, on each side of the superior maxillary (four or six in total), techniques called „QuadZygoma” respectively „Sixzygoma”.

Zygomatic dental implants types

Zygomatic implant insertion is carried out through extremely complex surgical procedures that involve an experienced medical team (implantologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, prosthetists, anesthetist, etc.) and all equipment specific for a major surgical act – operating block, general anesthesia, dental CT scanner, etc.

Dental Implants in Dubai is the Best Option for Replacing Missing Teeth

If you are searching for “ Dental Implants in Dubai ” you should find a professional implantology. Dental implantology is the field of dentistry that is concerned with the replacement of missing teeth and their supporting structures with artificial prostheses anchored to the jawbone.

Once you lose your back tooth, you may feel you don’t need to replace it, because nobody can see that it’s missing. However, there is more bone loss going on under the surface when a tooth is lost. There is an alveolar bone around all teeth which supports the tooth and when you lost the tooth, that bone basically evanesces. But through implanting, a professional dentist is able to recreate bone to support an implant.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants surgery
Dental implants are the replacement roots on which crowns can be mounted. They are made of titanium and connect directly to the jawbone. This creates a similar bond to that found in natural teeth. Dental implants are an alternative to dentures and bridges. Dental implants in Dubai are common as they are easier to maintain in our patients’ busy lives.

Why should you get dental implants?

Dental implants are very convenient compared to dentures as they are fixed in the mouth and do not need to be constantly adhered or removed. They are as good as natural teeth and also improve eating and speech abilities of the person wearing them. Dental implants in Dubai have a success rate of well above 95% hence it is a relatively safe and effective way to restore your smile.

 

How dental implants are done?

dental implants in Dubai Process

Dental implants are often seen as a complicated surgery however it is a simple and carefully thought process. In our dental clinic, we ensure that the surgery runs smoothly and effectively. Dental implants are done very professionally in our clinic in Dubai as described below (dental implants video).

At first, the patient’s mouth is assessed by our dentist. In order for the implant to be supported, bone mass called alveolar tissue is needed. For patients having lost such bone mass, a bone graft can be performed to recreate the support needed for the success of the dental implant.

Following the examination, a dental implant is connected to the jawbone under the gum tissue and allowed to heal. Upon healing, the dental implant will adhere to the jawbone.

An abutment is a link between the dental implant and the artificial tooth. The abutment is fixed on the dental implant so that the crown can be mounted on it.

The artificial tooth is then mounted on the abutment followed by bridges if needed. Our dentist will then be able to adjust the artificial teeth in order to create harmony in our patient’s mouth.

Natural teeth vs dental implants in Dubai

The surgery often requires more than one visit to our dentist in order to make sure that the dental implant has bonded correctly.

The healing and recovery processes will vary from patient to patient however most of our patients experience little to no post-surgical pain. In very rare cases, bleeding and infection might occur or the implant might not have bonded to the jawbone correctly. However, our dentists are careful to provide you with the best, worry-free experience (Read more).
