One Stage Dental Implants

The evolution of dental implant related treatments in this era took its origin from the work of Branemark, who scientifically validated the entire process of placing an implant into bone, waiting a period of time for that bone to heal towards the implant, after which long-term functional loading adopted. Throughout the 70s and early 80s, a 1 stage threaded titanium plasma covered dental implant was adopted for overdenture retention with immediate loading. Also know as Swiss screw, the plasma coated dental implant was place into the anterior mandible and led to excellent long-term success. Other one stage implant systems were slow to emerge, but as they were proved with supporting data, the idea of a 1 stage endosseous dental implant therapy acquired credibility. The Strauman system has long-term data, showing that the one stage unloaded dental implant system can function in most regions of the mouth in distinction using the Swiss screw and also the Branemark methods.

Dental Implant Initial Stability

Initial Stability of Dental Implants

Initial Stability of an individual Dental Implant can be controlled by:

  • Implant Body Design
  • Implant Thread Design
  • Implant Length
  • Implant Diameter
  • Implant Surface
  • Drilling Protocol


Dental Implant Design for Immediate Placement

Dental Implants which are favorable to immediate placement after extraction are as follows:

Tapered Implant
For immediate replacement after extraction, initial fixation is very important because the contact area between fixture and bone is inevitably small. Therefore, a tapered implant with has excellent initial fixation is more favorable than the straight type.

Implant Favorable to Bone Grafts
In case of placement after extraction, Guided Tissue/Bone Regeneration or GBR is frequently performed because of the dehiscence or space between the fixture and alveolar bone. Therefore, an implant design with a proper surface treatment for its alveolar ridge should be selected.
