Dental Implant Techniques
We at BeaMed Clinic do not believe in “second-class” quality! That is why we made sure to use the latest dental technologies from the most famous Swiss and German brands. We put the health aspect before the aesthetic aspect, and we are working to provide integrated health and cosmetic service. Starting with highly experienced doctors, and ending with carefully selected medical technologies, devices, tools, and care that reflect our keenness to provide the best for you and our concern for your health to reach the result that satisfies you and makes you happy.
The goal of dental implants is to obtain a healthy oral environment and a healthy and attractive appearance. Therefore, we were keen to contract with the most famous international brands and obtain a high guarantee from the same country of origin.
Here are the most important and latest technologies that we use in our clinic…
Dental Implant Techniques
The lack of a complete set of teeth causes many psychological and social problems for a person. However, there are more serious problems, such as; Bone loss, tooth decay, poor oral hygiene, and general-poor oral health.
Hence the importance of dental implant surgery as a permanent solution for restoring oral health and a charming smile to the mouth.
The dental implant techniques that we use at BeaMed Clinic are (All on Four _ All on Six _ and All on Eight) techniques. They are all made of pure zirconium and titanium. Through these techniques, the missing jaw teeth are replaced by using four, six, or eight dental implants for each jaw, according to the condition of each patient and the status of the jaw bones. These implants are strategically placed to hold dentures.
Dental implants by following these techniques give you replacement dental units that replace the teeth of a complete jaw, and are placed on 4-6-8 dental implants, that is, they use either 4-6-8 small screws that are implanted in the jaw bones. It is a restorative treatment that enhances the aesthetic appearance of the mouth and restores dental function.
The names of these all-on-4, all-on-6, and all-on-8 techniques refer to permanent dental implants used to replace missing or damaged teeth. The difference between the procedures lies in the number of transplants as indicated by the names.
One of the most important factors in deciding which techniques are most appropriate for each patient is the nature of the jaw and the specific circumstances of each patient. which means, we assess the health status of your existing teeth, assess the level of damage, as well as the jaw bone structure, and accordingly decide which techniques are the right choice for you and best for your needs.
The All On Four Implant Technique
The All-on-4 technique is suggested for patients who have good general health, and strong healthy jaw bone structure. With this technique, teeth are placed in a full jaw, based on the implantation of only four implants in each jaw, that is, a total of eight implants in the entire mouth.
All On Six Implant Technique
The (All-on-6) technique is proposed for patients who suffer from a problem of caries in the jawbone, which means, dental implants here will rely on six implants in the upper and lower jaws.
Here, two additional All-on-4 dental implants are implanted to achieve stability and strength in the mouth.
Because dental implants (All on 6) provide additional strengthening and stimulation to the jawbone.
All On Eight Implant Technique
The All-on-8 technology is used in patients who require the added safety of their full arcuate implants. This may be due to a weak jawbone, an irregular shape of the mouth, or another problem that requires this procedure as assessed by the surgeon. It should be noted that through the (All-on-8) technique, the artificial dentures are dispensed with so that the entire jaw is compensated through bridges between the eight implants for each jaw. The dentist places the eight implants across the jaw to ensure alignment, fit and comfort, and for the patient to have a normal feel and look, and healthy chewing and articulation.
Maxillary Sinus Surgeries
Maxillary sinus surgery or what is known as “sinus surgery” is a special procedure that the dentist performs when the patient undergoes dental implants so that he is able to implant implants in the jaw. The goal of lifting the maxillary sinuses – which affects the upper jaw only – is not a treatment in itself, but rather to prepare the jaw for implantation of dental implants.
These are holes located inside the bones of the face, between your upper teeth and your eyes (the pockets that fill with mucus when you have a head cold). This problem arises as a person ages, and genetic conditions are also a strong factor for the emergence of this problem, not to mention if a person is neglectful in following up on his health in general, and his oral health in particular, this is also a reason not to be underestimated. All of this helps the emergence of the maxillary sinuses and their exacerbation with time, as the membrane of the maxillary sinus in these holes begins to descend towards the jaw and exit through the dental gaps in the mouth (the missing teeth from the upper jaw) and here the real problem begins!
The maxillary sinus membrane begins to droop toward the jaw bones and begins to absorb the upper jawbone, leaving the doctor not enough bony space in which to insert dental implants. Here, the doctor resorts to a procedure named maxillary sinus lift, through the process of “sinus lift.” The doctor adds an alternative bone material to the upper jaw, which ensures a safe place to place dental implants while maintaining the integrity of the sinuses.
There are two different ways a doctor can achieve this; Either use the internal approach (Osteotome approach) if the need to add the ‘bone graft’ is relatively small, or use the external approach (Caldwell Luc technique) if the need to add the ‘bone graft’ is very large.
Internal Sinus Lift
If an internal approach is used to lift the upper pocket, it will be done with the implant placed at the same time. The doctor creates a hole for the implant, then inserts a metal instrument called an osteotome. The bone is gently tapped to lift the sinus cortex upward, then this area is filled with the bone graft. Then the implant is placed.
External sinus lift
If the external approach is used, a hole is made in the bone adjacent to the sinuses. Then the lower cortex of the sinuses is lifted with a specific instrument, and a bone-replacement material “bone graft” is placed in the space created. The area is then covered, sutured, and left to heal for at least six months.
In both procedures, bone grafts are used, but in varying proportions. In both cases, the patient is anesthetized locally, and the option of general anesthesia remains on the table if the doctor sees a need to use it.
It is worth mentioning here that permanent dentures provide a more stable and comfortable experience when compared to temporary dentures, and give you the look and feel of natural teeth.
