Dental implants in the upper and lower jaw: differences
TheDental implants of the upper jaw has several significant differences. The structure of the upper jaw arch is characterized by a lower bone density. The main load goes to the bottom, it is she who plays a leading role in the process of chewing food. Because it has a large volume of bone tissue. The upper one is deprived of this material, therefore it is much more vulnerable to injuries, it atrophies faster after the loss of one element of the row. Also in this part of the skull are the maxillary sinuses filled with air. Sinusitis and other inflammatory diseases of the sinuses do not contribute to the improvement of its condition. Implantation of the upper jaw with bone atrophy is unacceptable: the implant cannot be fixed reliably enough, the violation of the integrity is too extensive.
The solution to this problem was sinus-lift. Approximately 80% of patients receive this procedure at the burden of implantation. Its essence is to increase the volume of bone tissue in the region of the maxillary sinuses, i.e. their bottom rises. This allows you to securely fix the implants in the bone, as well as improve osteointegration. For successful sinus lift and implantation, the doctor needs to study 3D tomography of the teeth. You may need to consult an ENT specialist to exclude complications due to the latent form of sinusitis, sinusitis, etc.
Do not forget about the aesthetic side of the procedure: the front incisors are always in sight. The smile zone must be impeccable, otherwise the person begins to feel awkward. Most people put the beauty of a smile above the functionality of the dentition, so a doctor’s mistake can lead to complexes and general patient dissatisfaction. Even color, suitable size crowns, as well as complete naturalness are the basic requirements of our patients.
Upper jaw implantation process
The first thing the doctor pays attention to is the condition of the gums. The aesthetic contour of the soft tissue determines how the artificial tooth will subsequently look. To restore fullness, it is necessary to install a gingiva former or to implant with the installation of a temporary crown. This provides the necessary support and eliminates atrophy.
Complications after implantation of the upper jaw teeth
The human body can respond to the introduction of a foreign body in different ways. Possible postoperative complications:
- Hematoma due to extensive soft tissue injury.
- Long bleeding. Blood clotting is a direct contraindication to any surgical procedure. If the patient did not warn in advance about its presence, then the bleeding may be prolonged and will not stop on its own.
- The divergence of the seams with which the soft fabrics were fixed. In this case, you need to contact the clinic for re-application.
- Inflammatory processes in the gingival tissues. This indicates the entry of bacteria into the wound. Most often, the problem arises due to non-compliance with the rules of care, lack of proper hygiene.
- Pain at the installation site. This is a normal phenomenon that accompanies healing.
- Implant rejection. It is extremely rare and depends on the individual intolerance of the components by the body. Modern dentistry uses titanium abutments, which are biologically inert.
Upper jaw implantation in the absence of teeth is recommended to be combined with prosthetics. As a basis, several implants are installed, on top of which a bridge is mounted, which is fastened with telescopic locks. Such a prosthesis can be made of nylon – the most optimal option. It smothers naturally and is made quickly.
