Types of Dental Implants
There are many brands, ranges and types of dental implants on the global market and in Thailand. In terms of technique and concept for the timeframe of treatment, there are 3 basic implant types:
Conventional implants are the standard concept whereby treatment is done in 2 stages. During the first stage, the dental implant post is inserted into the jawbone. The implant post is left to integrate and fuse with the jaw bone. It normally takes around 2 to 6 months for the implant post to securely embed with the jaw bone. Thereafter during the second stage, your dentist (or prosthodontist) builds the crown, bridge or dentures to be fitted over the dental implants.
Immediate implants, sometimes known as one day implant. This concept applies to the first stage treatment whereby an existing damaged tooth is extracted and the dental implant post is placed into the jaw bone during the same surgical visit. Therefore, during the same one day visit, you new implant post tooth root. However, this does not mean that the false tooth can be fitted over during the same period. The implant post is still left to heal for at least 2 months or more before crown, bridge or denture is loaded over the dental implant post.
ProArch (All-on-4) is an immediate function concept whereby both the first stage and second stage are done during the same period of time. ProArch (All-on-4) applies only to ful jaw implants (not for single or several missing teeth). One day implants combined with immediate loading of prostheses is done in one go. ProArch (All-on-4) has the benefit that the dental implant posts and its fixed denture prostheses is completed over a short period of time of around 2 weeks. For someone who has exisiting teeth and requires removal of all teeth, ProArch (All-on-4) concepts makes the transition process smoother. At a later stage, after 6 months or more when the implant posts have healed with the jaw bone, the first set denture prostheses is normally replaced with another longer-term fixed denture prostheses using strong materials.
