The surgery stage

During the surgery stage, the dental implant specialist inserts the implant in the maxillary bone or in the mandibular.

The success of the entire process depends largely on how closely the bone will grow around the implant (osteointegration).

 

The patient contributes to the osteointegration process by avoiding the mastication in the implant area which protects the area in question from pressure until the implant is permanently integrated.

Another important factor is keeping the gums and the teeth clean at all times, performing plaque removals more frequently than usual (every three months instead of every 6 months as usual).

 

Preparing for surgery

Most of the surgeries are performed in the dental office.

 

Make sure that you are wearing conformtable clothes and that there will be a member of your family to transport you home after the surgery.

 

Before the surgery you will receive a prescription for antibiotics, wash and rinse mouth with antiseptic mouth wash in order to prevent infections.

 

During the surgery

You will be administered drugs to help you relax.

 

Then you will be given the specialized anesthetic in order to numb the area where the implant specialist will be working.

 

You will be conscient, you will hear the noises, you will feel the vibrations, but you will feel no pain. If you feel unconformtable, let your doctor know.

 

The entire surgical procedure may last up to several hours.

 

 

After the surgery

After the surgery you will probably need to rest for a while, you will need to use something cold (a bag of ice covered in a towel) to diminish the post-surgery swelling. You can go home as soon as feel up to it. At home, you will follow the recommendations of the implant specialist concerning the antibiotics and the pain medication. You can eat certain foods (soup at room temperature, no milk or milk products, no alcohol, no rising with tea) after at least 4 hours.

 

At home it is recommended to apply on the surgery area the gel with hyaluronic acid given by the dentist.

 

You must avoid effort, speaking very much, laughing, touching the sutures with your tongue.

 

The next day you should come to the dental office for post-surgery observation and control.

 

You can resume brushing after 24 hours without too much tooth paste, avoiding the surgery area and strong rinsing. You can use clorhexidine mouth wash.

 

The next stage is after 7-10 days when the sutures are removed and if necessary a temporary prosthesis is inserted for the next 6-9 months which represent the osteointegration period until the final implant is inserted.

 

The second surgery stage – after at least 6 months from inserting the implants – is the unveiling of the implants.

A small incision in the gum is performed under anaethesia above the implant. The healing abutment for the gum is mounted and after 5-7 days the gum will mould just around the natural tooth.
