Fix Teeth In 5 Days- Basal Implants

Fix Teeth In 5 Days- Basal Implants

(KOS, BCS & BOI Basal Implants)
(say good bye to bone grafting, sinus lifts, and nerve repositioning)

For all queries regarding Dental Implants Call +918588097530  or email to dr.amanahuja@yahoo.com

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacing teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Moreover the facial contours are also preserved. With dental implants, the person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything.

There are different protocols/techniques for Dental implant treatment. Cosmodent Implant team believes only in scientifically proven protocols. The proven Branemark Protocol is a two stage dental implant treatment which requires 3 to 6 months with 2-3 sittings. Patients undergoing such treatment have to wait for a longer time before they can enjoy the benefits of better appearance, chewing, speech and their self confidence.

What is Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5days protocol?

Permanent-fixed teeth-in 5-days protocol is the in thing in dental implant treatment today. As the name says, every patient receives fixed permanent ceramic teeth in exactly 5 days from the day of implant placement. The most conservative (flapless) surgical technique combined with an in-house dental laboratory can deliver fixed teeth in 5 days.

With Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5-days protocol we can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics.

Permanent-fixed-teeth-in-5 days, How is it done?

The Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol is performed in a single phase. It includes,

– Any tooth extraction, as indicated

– Implant placement, as planned

– Custom made CAD-CAM (designed ‘n’ milled) permanent prosthesis (teeth) fixed on Implants.

Day 1

On the first visit, the implant team clinically examines the patient, followed by necessary OPG taken for preliminary assessment. A 3D CBCT Scan (COSMODENT has an in-house OPG facility) if required, will be performed for precision planning. A virtual placement of implants will be demonstrated to the patient on the 3D CBCT SCAN, before finalizing the treatment plan. As a part of the treatment planning, the technique, cost factor and different fixed teeth options will be explained to the patient.

Day 2/3

The teeth are extracted and the basal implants are also placed during the same surgical visit. Impressions are taken for permanent ceramic teeth.

Day4/5

The permanent ceramic teeth are custom prepared and fixed within 5 days.

Thus the timeline for Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days is completed within one trip. At Cosmodent, we place 8 to 10 implants to restore the upper jaw and 6 to 8 implants for the lower jaw. The technique includes a combination of compression implants, basal implants and pterygoid implants. With this combination, every patient receives a full set of fixed teeth, without any bone graft procedure, sinus lift or nerve repositioning, that too with a lifetime warranty.

With these 8 to 10 basal implants, a full set of permanent ceramic teeth are fixed. A full set means the patient gets a total of 14 teeth on each arch, including the 2nd molars. The fabrication of permanent teeth takes approximately 4 to 5 days in our hi-tech dental lab. These permanent solutions are exclusively customized for you using CAD-CAM precision, along with the manual artistry and dexterity of skilled technicians. You have varied options to choose from such as metal ceramics, metal free Zirconium or titanium based crown and bridges.

Why is Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol so successful at Cosmodent?

  • Vast experience of the multispecialty implant team, close to 2 decades, with thousands of implants placed, a big percentage of which includes immediate loading implants.

  • Constant collaborations with leaders in immediate loading implants, Ihde Dental Switzerland and their associates. COSMODENT has standardized the rehabilitation of edentulous jaws, using this wonderful technique which is based on basal implants and immediate loading implants.

  • With an in-house X-Ray, OPG, every implant planning and placement is done with ultimate precision. Hi-tech CAD-CAM supported, dental laboratory with 20 versatile and artistic dental technicians, in team with 2 high profile Prosthodontists (tooth replacement specialists) make sure you get the most natural looking, functional teeth in just 5 days time.

  • It means that implant treatments are done with high standards of sterilization and state-of-the-art equipments.

  • Even though every practitioner claims painless/ stress less placement of implants, we believe that full mouth implant placement needs more attention as far as the stress factor is concerned. To overcome this issue, the implant centre is equipped with conscious sedation machines, general anesthesia facility and a senior anesthetist on call.

  • The implant centre even has inpatient facilities, if you prefer round the clock attention and surely some savings on your accommodation.

Advantages of Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol using KOS, BCS, BOI implants.

  • The BCS implants can be placed immediately after extraction.

  • KOS, BCS and BOI Implants are designed to be immediately loaded. That means permanent teeth (not removable dentures) can be fixed in 5 days.

  • This implant system heals faster, when they are loaded immediately, so no waiting for 3-6 months, for Osseo integration.

  • As these are single piece implants, so no screw loosening, less chance of peri implantitis.

  • These implants can be placed flapless (except BOI, which needs a gum incision and suturing) so more patient comfort and faster healing assured.

  • BCS and BOI (basal) implants are smooth surface implants. The advantages of smooth surface implants are-more resistant to infections-less maintenance needed-less bone resorption around implants-less risk of periimplantitis…(which is a major reason for implant failure )

  • This protocol can be performed in controlled diabetic patients, smokers and patients with severe gum disease with equal success.

  • In a single visit….both extraction and implant can be completed. So, a single surgical visit is required, compared to a two-staged implant protocol, thus avoiding multiple surgeries.

  • These implants are from highly reputed IDHE DENTAL, a SWISS company which is known for its perfection.

  • All patients can enjoy the benefits of permanent fixed bridges on implants within 5 days.

  • This improvised technique is equally reliable as the traditional techniques.

  • This protocol can often be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics.

  • The Permanent-fixed teeth-in-5 days protocol is completed in a single trip.

Comparison of different implant treatment techniques at Cosmodent.

  • Versatility of the implant team is very crucial in implant treatment planning and execution.

  • No single implant procedure is ideal for every clinical situation. Many of the known implant practitioners perform only a single technique for every situation, because they are only familiar to that one technique. They not only promote that technique, they even put down other modalities. This is lack of expertise and knowledge.

  • No technique is superior to any other technique. The fact is that, different techniques and approaches are required for different clinical situations, for the ultimate success of implant.

All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

My mouth smelling.  I also cleaned tooth but no give positive result. What to do? Please help me.
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

I have a teeth problem all over the mouth and sensitivity problem also available.
The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.
