Pemasangan implant gigi adalah pemasangan akar gigi dan mahkota tiruan. Selain mengganti gigi hilang, implant relevan dengan peningkatan kualitas hidup karena memberi manfaat :
- maintain overall tooth strength because each tooth is side by side and not ‘alone’
- protect jawbones from resorption,
- restore natural smile, maintain face shape and smooth talk,
- help digestion and provides opportunities to enjoy food freely.
- can last a lifetime for patients with a good systemic state and not prone to porosity.
Pemilihan material yang tepat perlu dipertimbangkan supaya implant yang dipasang dapat diterima baik oleh tubuh (tidak alergi), kuat, nyaman dan secara estetika terlihat menyatu dengan gigi lainnya. Prosedur implant gigi berbeda untuk setiap merk karena memiliki system, ukuran, material bahkan system ulirnya masing-masing, sehingga setiap merk implan memiliki peralatan, metode dan cara pasangnya sendiri
Namun demikian, pemasangan implan mengikuti tahapan standar sebagai berikut :
- tooth extraction, when the tooth still exists
- preparation of the jawbone including bone graft and sinus lifting if necessary, so that the implant is ensured to be firmly planted, durable and can be well accepted by the body,
- if the bone thickness is sufficient and the patient’s systemic condition is good, a dental implant is placed in place of the natural root,
- Osteointegration period is the union between the dental implant and the surrounding bone with an estimated time of 2-6 months depending on the condition of the patient’s jawbone, then the healing abutment for gum formation and molding is prepared to prepare the tooth abutment and crown.
- Installation of abutments and dental crowns so that patients can chew normally.
