After detailed examination and diagnosis, the dentist will assess the diagnostic materials such as X-rays and models and propose a treatment plan. Your doctor will tell you in detail about the treatment and restoration possibilities and will explain the best solution for you in joint discussion with you.
First step is detaching the mucosa.
After detaching the mucosa, the implant site is spot drilled using the marking drill. The drilling depth is variable and is maximum the length of the implant.
The use of the respective extension drills depends on the planned implant diameter. Step by step the drill hole is extended up to the final diameter.
In addition between the drilling steps, the depth can be controlled regularly by a depth gauge.
Additional Bone Preparation
Depending on bone quality, implant type and prosthetic system different additional tools like Bone Condenser, Reamer etc. may be used.
An initial thread should be cut in cases with highly cortical bone structures (D1/D2). The depth of the thread cut is usually half the length of the implant. The thread can be tapped manually or using a handpiece.
Sterile Implant Taking
For an efficient, secure and sterile workflow, the implant can be taken directly out of the implant holder with any implant insertion tool.
This procedure facilitates a minimal risk of implant contamination.
After preparation of the bone, the implant is inserted in the jaw.
The implant insertion is performed with the insertion tool for angle piece or additionally with the TR insertion tool and torque ratchet until it is flush with the bone level.
Following the gum (gingiva) is shaped with the aid of a gingiva former. After 10-14 days, an impression can be taken, which acts as a basis for the dental technician to manufacture your prosthesis.
Removal of Gingiva Shaper
Following osseointegration, the implant is exposed and the gum (gingiva) is shaped. After removing the gingiva shaper the prosthetic procedure can be started.
The transfer abutment transfers the absolute and relative implant position to the master model. There are different possibilities suitable for taking an impression and your dentist will inform you about the specific procedure.
The impression is taken for fabricating a model of your dental situation and the implant position. This model is casted out of plaster by the technician in the laboratory, where the restoration will be crafted using wax.
Based on the master model the dental technician selects the appropriate abutment regarding gingival height and angulation out of a wide range of SIC Standard Abutments.
The abutment can be customized if necessary.
The framework is waxed up onto the abutment.
The result is the metal framework of the restoration.
Finally the metal frame will be covered with a tooth coloured ceramic.
After fixation of the abutment on the implant by the dentist the restoration can be cemented on the abutment.
Implants improve the quality of life and well-being of patients.
The service life of an implant is not only affected by the exceptional good quality of e.g. our SIC invent implants but depends also on a good care and regular check-ups at your implantologist.
