Dental implantation for periodontitis

Dental implantation for periodontitis

For a long time, periodontitis, which is also called “periodontal disease”, was a serious contraindication for implantation. However, modern studies have confirmed the possibility of carrying out these operations even in severe forms of the disease. At the Amel Dental clinic, dental implantation is performed for periodontitis if classical implantation is not possible.

In severe forms of the disease, first of all, it is necessary to carry out a set of measures aimed at eliminating the causes and consequences of damage to the patient’s oral cavity, and only after stabilization of the inflammation is implantation possible.

Preparation for implantation with periodontitis

In preparation for the implantation operation, a full examination of the patient is carried out, an anamnesis is taken, since periodontitis is often associated with various diseases of the body, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, viral infections, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

After assessing the patient’s general health, professional oral hygiene is carried out to remove plaque and tartar, and an individual hygiene program is drawn up for dental care at home. In severe cases, surgery is performed to restore the jawbone and soft gum tissue.

The entire complex of preparatory measures can take from several weeks to several months in case of severe damage to the bone and gums, and only after its completion, an implantation operation is prescribed.

How is implantation performed for periodontitis

Immediately before performing such an operation as dental implantation with severe forms of periodontitis, the oral cavity is sanitized to remove all foci of infection, control plaque in the oral cavity and treat the cavity with medications.

Further, the affected teeth are removed, which are most often mobile, and an implant is installed in their place. After that, it is necessary to wait several months for the implant to take root, and only after that prosthetics is performed (installation of a ceramic crown on the implant).

Benefits of the implantation procedure

In severe cases, implantation is the only possible option for tooth restoration and has the following advantages over other methods of treatment:

  • 1
    Moving teeth are removed and replaced with structures that do not bond with healthy teeth, thereby reducing the stress on them.
  • 2
    A short period of time elapses between the initial implantation of the implant and prosthetics.
  • 3
    If necessary, it is possible to install crowns on implants in the first days after the operation, it is not dangerous, with the help of mechanical load, bone tissue recovery is stimulated and blood circulation is activated.
  • 4
    The operation prevents further inflammation, restores the aesthetic appearance of the oral cavity, and allows you to return to normal nutrition in the shortest possible time.

Implantation is prescribed only after other methods of treatment have not brought the desired result. This method is one of the most effective and reliable.

Answers to frequently asked questions about implantation for periodontitis and periodontitis

The patients of the Amel Dental Clinic have questions during their treatment. Here are the answers to the most common ones.

Why is the removal of mobile teeth more reliable than their fixation with healthy ones?

The classical method of fixing the damaged teeth to healthy ones leads to an increase in the load on healthy teeth, as a result of which the risk of their loss increases. Moreover, two teeth serve as a support at once, that is, one problem tooth is saved at the expense of two healthy ones.

How long does the implant last?

With the correct implantation, the nail is implanted into the least damaged part of the bone tissue and contributes to its restoration. Therefore, subject to hygiene and regular visits to the clinic, the life of the implant is not limited.

How to care for implants?

Good hygiene helps reduce the risk of problems with the implant. It is necessary to regularly brush your teeth 2 times a day, use rinse aid and dental floss, and carry out professional cleaning of the oral cavity.

In addition, it is recommended to give up such bad habits as smoking and drinking alcohol, to follow the recommendations of your doctor.

Why is prosthetics performed immediately with a permanent prosthesis?

The implant is placed deep into the bone tissue and has high strength immediately after the operation. In addition, the load stimulates the speedy recovery of damaged tissues, therefore, the installation of a temporary prosthesis is not needed.
