What is basal implantology?
Basal implantology is a branch of dentistry and dental implantology. It specializes in full mouth dental restoration of edentulous, toothless, patients with severe bone atrophy, bone loss.
Basal implant dentists use basal dental implants that are especially made to be fixed into the cortical bone of the jaw to avoid bone graft, bone compensation and sinus lift that are not good solutions for edentulism with severe bone atrophy. Basal implantology offers an effective long-term solution to patients that are considered hopeless cases by conventional implantology..
Basal implantology for full mouth dental restoration
Basal implantology treats patients that suffer from partial or total tooth loss withd severe bone loss. This technique is more advanced than conventional implantology because it avoids bone grafting and sinus lift.
Basal implantology has two important components: the basal dental implants and the fixed full dental prosthesis.
Firstly, basal dental implants are longer in order to be fixed into the cortical bone. It is hard bone not subject to resorption like the spongious bone of the gums where conventional implants are placed.
Secondly, in basal implantology, the implantologist places full bridges of 14 crowns that stabilizes all the dental implants together under the prosthesis. This allows the bone to close around the tooth implant more quickly. As a result, the basal dental implants are more stable and solid. They absorb the pressure of chewing.
Basal implantology recreates the natural functionality of the mouth. Patients can once again chew normally with the molars at the back of the jaws, which is not the case with conventional implantology using the All-on-4 or All-on-6 system. Basal implantology is practiced with basal dental implants in the dental restoration system All on 4 Xtra.
