Edema after the build-up of bone tissue
About implant placement surgery(implants) a lot of fantasy and exaggerate. In fact, everything is quite simple. Fixation of the implant is much easier to tolerate by patients than tooth extraction or individual moments of endodontic dentistry.
Implantation is relatively simple, howeverthe survivability of implants depends on a rational plan for prosthetics, followed by an optimal functional load on the supporting implants. Therefore, your main experiences should not be about waiting for pain during implantation, but about competent complex planning of implantation and subsequent prosthetics for implants.
The operation takes place in a standard dentalchair and lasts approximately 30 minutes with fixation of one implant. All manipulations during the operation are under local anesthesia and you do not feel any pain. During the operation, a small point incision is made on the gum in the place where the implant is planned to be inserted. Then, with a special tool, a depression is made through the hole in the gum in the jaw bone and an implant is inserted. After that, the hole in the gum tissue is sewn with a few stitches. All these actions take place for you without any sensations, since anesthesia works. After the operation, you will be offered the application of a cooling compress to the skin of the face in the area of manipulations. You will be recommended to use a similar compress at home 3-4 times a day the next day. After an hour and a half after implantation, it is desirable to take an analgesic to eliminate painful sensations in the postoperative field. Minor soreness in this area can be within 2-3 days. The swelling of the tissues in the area of the performed operation will be insignificant, but it may increase somewhat by the third day. After that, the swelling will decrease, and you will forget about the unpleasant sensations to the fifth or sixth day. These days you will be offered to remove stitches from the field of the operating field on the gum. Now you can forget about us for 3-4 months before the moment of prosthetics on the installed implants.
If you have insufficient thickness of bone tissue inthe area of planned implantation, then you under anesthesia will make a small incision of the gingival tissue in the planned jaw fragment for implantation. Then a special tool through the hole in the gum will be introduced into the causal fragment of the jawbone of the imported (Germany) bone-forming material, put on it the thinnest membrane, connect the edges of the gum in the region of the incision and apply a couple of stitches. Your sensations and actions will be about the same as after implantation. After 3-4 months you will have an x-ray control of the jaw fragment where bone tissue was grown. In most cases, the bone structure is restored in this jaw region. Implantation is then carried out as described above.
You can also ask: "And if it does not take root?". A positive effect in implantation is observed in 98% of cases. Positive result is promoted by rational planning of operation and optimal selection of implantation system for each clinical case. The negative effect is facilitated by the presence of severe concomitant common diseases, for example, such as diabetes. If the implant does not "engraft", then it becomes obvious within 10 days after the operation. Then it is taken out, naturally under anesthesia, and at the same time another implant is fixed, having changed its system or technical characteristics. You, in this case, pay only a new implant.
May you have good luck! Be healthy!
