Recommended For Biomet Dental Implant
Candidates of Biomet Dental Implant are people needing immediate function on a single tooth and/or multiple teeth.
Not Recommended For Biomet Dental Implant
The patient will not be suitable for Biomet dental implants if the patient has a hypersensitivity to commercially pure titanium or titanium alloy (containing vanadium, aluminum, and calcium phosphate). The usage of anticoagulants and having metabolic illnesses, for instance, diabetes, allergies, chronic renal or cardiac illness and blood dyscrasia may also crucially affect the patient’s capability to experience implant procedures effectively. It is advised to consult to your specialist If the medical history of you shows a present complaint or indicate a possible issue that may negatively affect the treatment and/or your health.
Number Of Trips Abroad
Generally, patients need to travel twice, with a 2 to 6 months break in between
Duration Of Operation
Around 45 minutes
2 to 3 days
Biomet Dental Implant is a type of dental implant brand that is a pioneer in the realm of biologically driven implants. It is popular for its micro-textured OsseoTite surface implants and nano-scaled, bone-bonding NanoTite surface implants.
Biomet has several dental implant system products that your specialist may use according to your conditions. They are:
- T3® Implants
- T3® Short Implants
- OSSEOTITE® Implants
- Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implants
- 3.1mmD Eztetic™ Implants
- Tapered Screw-Vent® Implants
- The LOCATOR® Overdenture Implants System
- Spline® Implants
A careful and in-depth assessment of the patient’s general health, medical history and oral hygiene should be done. Tobacco usage, masticatory function and alcohol usage should be taken into consideration. Also, your specialist will decide if your anatomical basis is suitable to undertake implant placement and make an extensive intraoral examination. For the planning of your treatment, you will get CT Scans and Radiographic Transparencies.
How It Is Performed
At first, a local anesthetic is administered. Once an incision is made to expose bone at the operation area, a precision drill is utilized in order to make a tiny hole. The Biomet Dental implant is then applied or screwed into the area. There are some cases that not require an initial incision so the implant can be put straight through soft tissue. For patients whose treatment plan includes two-step implant care, the second phase is accomplished after the implant has been integrated into and stabilized by the jawbone. In the second visit, one more local anesthetic will be administered so as to access the implant post and attach the abutment to the implant.
The recovery period of Biomet dental implant changes relying on the bone quality at the implantation area, the response of the tissue to the implanted device and the specialist’s evaluation of the patient’s bone density during the surgery.
Complications that may occur in Biomet dental implants are:
- Excessive bone loss or breakage of the dental implant due to excessive loading of implants more than its functional capacity
- Aspiration and swallowing due to mismanagement of small parts inside the patient’s mouth
- Damage to the implant, Driver and Osteotomy due to pushing the implant into the osteotomy deeper than the depth made by the drills
Following are the potential side effects that can be seen in Biomet Dental Implant:
- Failure to integrate or Loss of integration
- Dehiscence needing bone grafting
- Perforation of the maxillary sinus
- Inferior border
- Lingual plate or Labial plate
- Inferior alveolar canal or gingiva
- Infection as reported by abscess or Systemic infection
- Persistent pain
- Excessive bone loss needing intervention
- Implant breakage or fracture
- Nerve injury
According to the researches the success rate of Biomet dental implant is found to be higher than 97%.
- How is the comparison of Biomet dental implant with alternative implant systems?
According to studies that compare the most known implant systems, there is no significant difference in survival rates among all. On the other hand, less popular or newer systems have few studies and not much clinical experience. Therefore, sufficient comparison cannot be made.
