How basal implants treat gum disease
Basal implants treat the symptoms of periodontal disease and restore complete dentition to the patient. Basal implants system resolves the symptoms of gum disease: loosening of teeth, tooth loss and bone loss.
Basal implants have the advantage of not depending on the cancellous bone of the gums that disappears as a result of periodontal disease.
What is gum disease?
What are the symptoms of periodontitis?
Gum disease also known as periodontitis is an inflammation of the soft gum tissue around the roots of teeth. It is characterized by resorption of gum tissue, leading to loosening and then the loss of teeth. In the initial stage, periodontal disease can be controlled and, in some cases, cured. In the later stage, a full dental restoration with basal dental implants can counteract the symptoms of gum disease: the loosening of the teeth and edentulism.
Gum disease is characterized by resorption of the gums and loosening of the teeth. If left untreated, teeth begin to fall out. Over time, a chain reaction occurs, culminating in the loss of all the teeth – total edentulism.
Treatments for gum disease with basal dental implants
How can periodontitis be treated with basal implants?
Basal dental implants are the best solution for treating gum disease because they are longer and fixed in the cortical bone, which is harder and deeper than the root of the tooth. They do not depend on the soft cancellous bone of the gums. They are therefore unaffected by the gum resorption associated with gum disease
Implant dentists specializing in basal implantology generally extract all teeth that are not stable. Some stable teeth, such as canines, can be retained and used with implants to support the denture.
Loosening of teeth
How can we prevent teeth from loosening?
When periodontal disease reaches the stage of tooth loosening, it’s necessary to extract unstable teeth and replace them with basal implants. Stable teeth can be retained and filed to support the fixed dental bridge.
The advantage of basal implantology for cases of gum disease is that all remaining teeth and basal implants are blocked under a full bridge of 14 crowns. This prevents tooth movement and helps regenerate the bone around the tooth roots. In this way, the loosening of the teeth is prevented.
How do I replace missing teeth?
When periodontal disease reaches the stage of tooth loss, it is necessary to replace the teeth with basal dental implants.
In basal implantology, missing teeth are replaced by implants along the entire length of the jaw, including behind the sinuses. Pterygoid implants are fixed behind the sinuses to recreate the natural functionality of the mouth and allow the patient to chew normally with the molar teeth.
Lack of bone
How to compensate for bone loss without bone grafting or sinus lift?
Basal implants are fixed in the cortical bone. And cortical bone is part of the cranium that does not disappear with tooth loss. Basal dental implants do not depend on the cancellous bone of the gums like conventional implants. So there’s no need for bone grafting or sinus lift.

How is basal dental implantation performed?
How does the dentist place basal dental implants for patients with severe gum disease?
In cases of severe gum disease, basal dental implantation is performed in one five-day visit. The implantologist will extract any teeth that are unstable or moving. Stable teeth, however, can be retained and filed to support the fixed dental bridge. Where teeth are missing, he will add implants along the entire length of the jaw to create support points.
Typically, in cases of gum disease, patients have a dozen points of support on the upper jaw and 8 to 10 points of support on the lower jaw. The dentist uses stable teeth unaffected by periodontal disease and places implants where teeth are missing. A full bridge of 14 crowns is placed on top.
How long does it take to treat gum disease?
How long does it take for a complete dental restoration to cure periodontal disease?
With immediate-load basal dental implants, dental restoration takes only 1 5-day visit.
