Types of dental implants
There are many different brands of dental implants and Brisbane Dental Implant Group use two:
This brand of dental implants is backed by extensive research and development. They can be used as one or two-stage implants and are made from pure titanium.
One of the advantages of this brand of dental implants is that they are designed to increase stability in poor bone quality.
The Neoss Implant System can be used for immediate placement and function: as long as there is sufficient bone stability and appropriate occlusal loading (occlusion is how your upper and lower jaw fit together).
The NobelActive implant is an incredibly effective implant providing excellent stability
The feature of this particular brand of implant allows it to help in the perseveration of the biology of marginal hard and soft tissues.
Even in compromised bone situations NobelActive provides maximum stability. It has an expanding tapered implant body with double-lead thread design.
Its design provides optimal soft tissue support and maximum alveolar bone volume (remember: this is the bone that holds the tooth root in place).
This brand of dental implant also features a unique surface that increases the implant’s stability through faster bone formation, which also ensures long-term success.
This is just one of the many dental implant solutions from Nobel Biocare.
Determining your suitability
Implant candidacy can be the difference between a successful or unsuccessful surgery.
When considering dental implant surgery, it is always best to ask your dental professional about all aspects involved so you can be sure this treatment is in line with your needs and dental requirements.
Implant dentistry requires oral surgery. With this in mind there are 3 main requirements for ideal candidacy:
An adequate amount of jawbone present: You will need to have an adequate amount of jawbone present in order for the surgery to work. This is because the implant will fuse with the jawbone (osseointegration). An inadequate amount of jawbone can cause a high risk of implant failure. If you do not have adequate jaw bone material, a bone graft can be carried out prior to implant dentistry.
Good overall health: This will show your dentist and oral surgeons that you can properly handle the treatment as well as any potential risks or complications associated with implant surgery.
No presence of gum disease: Gum disease can cause a high risk of dental implant failure. If you do suffer from gum disease, it will first need to be treated before an implant treatment can occur.
