The OneSolution® Dental Implant Procedure
All-On-4® Dental Implant Procedure
All-on-4 Dental Implants Complications May Occur
If the all on 4 procedure is not performed by an experienced specialist, then problems may occur. The All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure can be performed by an inexperienced provider that doesn’t specialize is this procedure, and due to that inexperience, this can increase the risks of complications. It’s important to understand the specialty of the provider you are considering to work with, as well as the technology, techniques, and experience of the providers in that facility.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems Caused by Nicotine & Smoking
Smoking has severe effects on the oral health of an individual. Tobacco negatively can affect the successful treatment of any procedure performed in the mouth. The failure rate of implants is considerably higher for smokers, and maintenance of oral hygiene around the implants is even more important. To increase implant integration in smokers, structured protocols are suggested. Although dental implants have become the leading advanced dental procedure for tooth replacement, no procedure is without it’s complications.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems – Diabetes
Very little has been discovered about dental implants with diabetic patients and there has been a direct relationship with diabetic patients with periodontal disease. Some sources have been linking the devastating effect of diabetes on the osseointegration of implants and the healing of soft tissue. In experimental case studies of diabetes, a reduced level of bone-implant contact has been displayed, and the acceptance rate can be increased by treatment with insulin. Compared with the average patient, a higher rejection rate is apparent in diabetic patients. Most of the implant rejections happen during the 1st year of post placement, possibly pointing to the microvascular complications of the diabetic condition as a considerable causal factor.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems – Poor Hygiene
Patients with poor hygiene are more likely to be susceptible to peri-implantitis. These patients include cases with only some natural teeth and periodontal disease. These patients should be identified and monitored closely. Periopathogens have been studied and have shown to collect in reservoirs. These pathogens can spread to colonize the implant, especially in patients with aggressive periodontitis. Other patients that are at risk for implant failure are those with poor plaque control and those who smoke cigarettes and tobacco products.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Problems – Inexperienced Provider
When using the All-on-4 Dental Implants technique, problems can be caused when using an inexperienced dental provider. Many dentists with little experience use a surgical guide for the placement of implants. Although surgical guides can be used, the outcome of the case is often uncertain, and even if the implants are placed well, the location of the implants may not meet the ideal prosthodontic guidelines of a well supported All-on-4 bridge. Properly integrated implants are the framework for an ideal long-term All-on-4 case. Experience alone provides the skill set to successfully place implants. This experience can not come from a book. Some corporate run practices make claims that their dental providers have successfully integrated thousands of implants, and they have 100’s of dentists. This can sometimes mean that one experienced dentist placed 10,000 implants and another more inexperienced only 200. This statement can be over inflated. The most successful cases require the highest skilled surgeons and a general dentist does not have the speciality skillset to safely perform the All-On-4 procedure without complications. Keep in mind, generally cases that require this type of procedure are already advanced in nature. This type of case is not best for general dentists with little specialized experience.
