The basal dental implants from IHDE
The immediate loadable dental implants our oral surgeons use come from the Swiss manufacturer IHDE. For 20 years Professor Ihde has focused on the reduction of the treatment time. The unique structure of the titanium implants provides immediate stability for the fixed prosthetic load. Also, the implants consist of a single part, which means that the costs for the implant abutments in the second treatment for the final bridges are lower.
Method and procedure
This minimally invasive technique, performed under local anaesthesia (if necessary also under general anaesthesia), is an almost painless method that has been around for more than 30 years. The main feature of the system is that during the procedure the dentist creates the desired hollow in the bone for the implant by drilling a hole in the gum instead of making an incision in it. He only makes small holes in the gum and then places the implant in the hard part of the bone, notÂ in the soft, spongy bone substance.
8-12 implants per jaw are placed with this method. The exact number evidently depends on the width of the jaw. This system requires a higher number of implants for stability than a conventional implantation method, so that the provisional round bridge can be fixed immediately.
After the operation, the dentist takes an impression for the semi final replacement. The patient must only come back to the clinic the day after the surgery for the framework fitting and on the fourth day after surgeryÂ for the final fixation of the fixed dentures.
