Basal implants are one-piece implants in which the implant and the abutment are fused into one single piece. This reduces the failure of implants due to edge problems between the connections which exist in conventional two- and three-piece implants.
These implants take support from the basal bone which are a lot more resistant to resorption, very much unlike the conventional implants which mostly take support from the crestal bone. Basal implants get support from the basal bone area which generally remains free from the infection and less prone to resorption. Basal cortical bone also has a much faster and stable repairing capacity.
In most edentulous cases, the single piece screw type implants can be inserted in a minimally invasive fashion and involving minimum bone cutting. The implants are self-tapping and condense bone around the implant during insertion. Being minimally invasive, they are also associated with minimum post-operative oedema and healing at the procedure sites are rapid and often non-eventful. Additional surgical risks and complications are eliminated in addition to cost savings.
Implant placement in severely atrophic jaws is especially challenging because of the poor quality and quantity of the implant bed. Basal implants were essentially developed for use in atrophied jaw bones and are also called lateral implants or disk Implants. These implants are not differentiated by the way they are placed and also by the way forces are disseminated.
Avoidance of bone augmentation/grafting, sinus lifts and nerve trans-positioning, these implants are unique in that they can be made to utilize the available bone in the best possible manner to avoid bone augmentation procedures. With conventional implants, the available bone is modified (by using bone grafts, bone substitute grafts etc.) to suit the implants. With the basal implants, implants are selected or adapted to suit the patient’s own available bone – with respect to quality and quantity. Bone augmentation, if needed, is only required for aesthetic reasons and not for improving the anchorage of the implant in bone.
Basal implants work fine in patients with severe gum disease (acute destructive periodontitis etc.) where the mobile teeth have little or no bone support at all by facilitating implant placement and immediate loading soon after extractions.
Basal implants displace up to 60% less bone substance in comparison with conventional implants. Bone integrity and perfusion (blood supply) are barely affected. As a result, the post-operative swelling is minimal in addition to facilitating a fast recovery for the patient after the implant surgery.
Fast, Safe & Painless Dental Implant process with unique advantages of:
- Immediate loading
- Avoidance of bone grafting
- Single piece implantology
- Basal / Cortical bone support
- Minimally invasive
- Solutions for unfavourable bone situations
- Extremely low failure rates
- Virtually no incidence of Peri-implantitis
As basal implants are anchored in high quality basal bone, the biomechanical loads (masticatory forces etc.) are distributed to the cortical bone regions which are highly resistant to resorption and have very high repairing capacity. The force distribution is away from the bone areas surrounding the implant which are prone to bacterial invasion and hence these implants survive very well even in very unfavourable conditions. This sort of force distribution also helps in the prevention of “facial collapse” owing to bone resorption in the areas where there is no masticatory stimulation.
