Basic surgery of dental implants - Dental Implants Net

Implant treatment requires surgery to place one or more implants into the jawbone.
Surgical procedures include one-stage and two-stage methods.
The best method will be selected according to the condition of each patient's mouth.

Differences between one- and two-stage methods

One-stage method

This method includes surgery only once and can simultaneously achieve placement of the implant body and attachment of the extension (abutment) to support the artificial tooth. Once the implant and its surrounding bone have bonded firmly together, the artificial tooth (superstructure) is put in place. During this time, a temporary tooth replacement option can be worn over the implant site (One-day implant).

Treatment procedures

Advantages Disadvantages
The one-stage method reduces the burden on patients because only one surgical treatment is required. There is a risk of bacterial infection before the implant and its surrounding bone have bonded firmly together.

Two-stage method

This method involves surgery twice. Once an implant is placed into the jawbone, the incision is closed. Over the next several months, the implant and the surrounding bone are allowed to bond firmly together.
Then, an incision is made again to uncover the implant body and attach the extension (abutment). This extension piece completes the foundation on which the artificial tooth will be placed.

Treatment procedures

Advantages Disadvantages
As the two-stage method covers the placed implant with the gum, no external stress is applied to the implant during the treatment period and there is no risk of bacterial infection. Surgical treatment must be performed twice.
