Tooth Implants Technologies

Materials, techniques and technologies with the dental implant field have significantly improved in the past 20 years. This has led to high success rates for dental implant treatments at a safer, faster and more comfort level.

Dental implant technologies that have aided implantologists and dentists include:

  1. Digital and intraoral dental imaging for treatment planning
  2. 3D CT scan & digital tomography for treatment diagnoses
  3. Implant guided surgery software
  4. Digital surgical templates
  5. Dental implant Surgical set for safer impant surgery
  6. Innovative implant surface for faster osseointegration
  7. Regenerative systems for soft tissue support
  8. Roxolid implants 
  9. Ceramic implant
  10. CAD/CAM customized milling
  11. All-on-4 immediate function concept

2D Digital Imaging

Panoramic x-rays is one of the basic required diagnostic tool for any treatment planning. You dentist sees a two dimension view on the bone height for implant placement as well as a draft ideal on the bone density working with.

3D Imaging CT Scan

CBCT 3D imaging provides a host of additional information to 2D x-rays. Your dental specialist is able to view more dimensions and angles including the width of your jaw bone. With various view slices, your dentist can check for nerves, cysts and soft / hard tissues complications that is not normally visible from surface examinations.

3D imaging provides the added safety to 2D digital x-rays. Your dentist is able to determine if which location is best suited for implant placement or if there is a need for any bonegrafts or additional precautions prior to the start of treatment. Placement of implants in a correct three dimensional position is essential for favorable support and stability of peri-implant bone and surrounding tissues.

Implant Guided Software

With 3D CT Scan images taken, dental implant guided software is not readily available where your dentist is able to pre-plan your implant placement. Surigcal drill template guides can be fabricated and prosthesis designed pre-planned to allow a seamless integration of preoperative and prosthetic procedures.

Dental Implant guided software provides a comprehensive visualization of implant site and allow real prosthetic-driven implant planning to achieve predictable results. Patient safety is also increased at the planning stage as the software highlights and shows warnings if implants are potentially placed too close to the mandible nerve canals or to other planned implants.

Digital Surgical Template Guides

Conventionally, the implant is placed by using an analog gypsum model. Today cone beam-computed tomography (CBCT) and computer-guided implant surgical planning software today, a static acrylic pattern tray can now be fabricated digital. This guided tray control the drill path and implant insertion during the surgery. This means there is an added level of accuracy of implant positioning. The dental implant angulation is more predictable when using computer planning.

Guided surgical template controls the depth and angulation of the drills. The surgeon can perform a flapless surgery, which will increase patient comfort, reduce surgical time, avoid a bone grafting procedure, and expedite the recovery period.

Aside from better accuracy, the template guide also reduces the possible post-operative complications, such as air sinus perforation and a pinched nerve, which can cause a tingling or numb feeling.

Safer Implant Treatment with Implant Surgical Cassette

Dental implant sets are organized and clearly labelled for easy implant surgery readiness check with an implant surgical cassette. Simple color-coded application lays out the pathways based on surgical procedures. The non-digital but convenient format allwos all instruments needed for the implantation to be clearly arranged and organize. Dental implant treatment procedure is readily streamlined.

Innovate Implant Surfaces

Many top implant systems are made from titanium. Premium grade implant systems from Straumann and Nobel Biocare uses grit sandblasting technique with macro-roughness over implant surface enables a micro-roughness surfaces ideal structure for cell attachment.

In addition, active surface implant has now emerged with a chemically active surface for enhanced osseointegration between bone and implant. Implant rangfe systems such as Straumann SLActive surface and Nobel Biocare NobelActive provides for bone regeneration even at compromised sites.

With the active surface implants, healding time is signficantly reduced from 6-8 weeks down to 3-4 weeks.

Regenerative Systems for Soft Tissue Support

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR)  are dental surgical procedures that use barrier membranes to direct the growth of new bone and gingival tissue. Today’s advances in biomaterials implies that new bone bone subsitutes, membranes, biologics can used to regenerate bone or gingiva sites for restorations with proper function, esthetics or prosthetic restorations.

Barrier membranes that is able to integrate with tissue, biocompatible, cell occlusive, permeable for nutrients now facilitates soft tissue manipulation. Membranes slows down degradation time and provide a prolonged barrier function. Breakthrough in biology of tooth development, enamel matrix proteins to support the development of tooth-supporting tissues now allows a foundation for all necessary tissues associated with a true functional attachment.

Roxolid Implants

Dental implant posts are normally made of titanium. With new development in material by Straumann, Roxolid® is a high-performance alloy composed of fiftenn percent zirconium ceramics and eighty-five percent titanium. Roxolid implant posts features high tensile strength and excellent osseointegration capabilities.

Roxolid has a higher mechanical strength compared to titanium. Due to its strength, the implants are smaller sized that enables more treatment options. This also means less invasive treatment plan, faster healing and less post-operative discomfort. The smaller size implant oreserves bone with less invasive grafting procedure if required.

Ceramic Implants

Zirconia ceramic implants provides for high-end esthetic results and natural look for implant treatment. It is a metal-free alternative to titanium implants for patients that may be allergic to metals.

As a recent innovation, please consult with your implantologist if ceramic implants might be suited for your case.

CAD/CAM Digital Mills and Implant Fabrication

Our Sukhumvit dental hospital is one of the first in Thailand with an end-to-end digitalized dental implant prostheses platform.

Computer Aid Design (CAD) and Computer Aid Milling (CAM) from Germany are used at our on-site dental lab at BIDH to computer customized your implant abutment. This means your prosthodontist makes the shape, angulation and size specifically just to your personal occlusional bite.

Ceramic zirconia crowns is also fabricate on site at our dental labs to match your adjacent teeth for aesthetics and precision fit.

Full Mouth Implant Function Implants

Immediate function implants with All-on-4® and ProArch treatment concept is a graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the same period of implant post surgery. A technique developed in 1998, the treatment concept enables shorter treatment timing.
