Detailed Treatment Plan and Procedure for Front Tooth Implantation
Before commencing with the actual implant surgery, it is necessary to undertake a thorough evaluation of the patient’s overall dental health. This will typically involve an oral examination, X-rays, and a 3D scan for a comprehensive visualization of the oral cavity. These diagnostic procedures will assist in determining the bone quality and quantity, the precise placement of the implant, and the appropriate type and size of the implant to be used. If adequate bone tissue isn’t available, bone grafting might be necessary, which would require additional time for the bone to heal before implant placement.
The procedure commences with local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. An incision is made in the gum to expose the bone into which a hole is drilled for implant placement. The dental implant, which is a titanium screw that serves as an artificial root, is then inserted. A protective cover screw is placed over the implant, and the surgical site is stitched closed to facilitate healing. This stage is often referred to as Stage 1 Surgery.
The healing phase, also known as osseointegration, can last between three to six months, during which the implant fuses with the bone to form a sturdy base for the new tooth. During this period, we recommend a soft diet to avoid exerting pressure on the surgical site.
Once healing is complete, the protective cover screw is removed, and an abutment is fixed to the implant. The abutment serves as the link between the implant and the new tooth. The gum tissue is then allowed to heal around the abutment, a process that typically takes about one to two weeks. This stage is often referred to as Stage 2 Surgery.
Lastly, a custom-made dental crown that matches the color, shape, and size of the patient’s natural teeth is affixed to the abutment, thereby completing the implant procedure. The crown serves as the visible part of the tooth and is designed to enable the patient to eat, talk, and smile confidently.
Alternative Treatment Options
While dental implants are highly recommended due to their durability and natural appearance, alternative treatment options include dental bridges and partial dentures. However, these alternatives may not provide the same level of comfort, functionality, and aesthetics as dental implants.
According to the AUTONOME HONORARRICHTLINIEN guidelines, the estimated cost breakdown is as follows:
|Simple implantation with sufficient bone offer (with 3D implant navigation and punch technique)||1||1,476 €|
|Individual abutment||1||280 €|
|Full ceramic crown (jacket crown)||1||1,132 €|
|Diagnostic package (3D scan, 3D DVT, implant planning)||1||180 €|
Please note that these costs are estimates and may vary depending on the individual patient’s needs and circumstances. Furthermore, additional expenses may arise in the case of complications or the need for bone grafting.
- Abutment: A connector placed on the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
- Crown: A tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance.
- Implant: A surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis.
- Osseointegration: The process of the implant fusing with the bone.
- 3D scan: A three-dimensional image of the patient’s oral cavity, providing a detailed view of the teeth, gums, and bone structure.
- 3D DVT: A type of X-ray that provides detailed images of the bone structure in the mouth, aiding in the accurate placement of dental implants.
- Bone grafting: A surgical procedure used in dentistry to increase the amount of bone in a part of the jaw where bone has been lost or where more bone is needed.
