Though there are various types of implants available worldwide, we use three standard brands
Step 1- is the comprehensive data collection of the case i.e. photographs, study models, OPG, X-Ray and CT scan.
Step 2- is a thorough consultation with the patient. This includes getting the patient history of any medical problems like diabetes, blood pressure, bleeding disorders, radiation history etc. Also getting a history of any habits like smoking or grinding teeth. At this stage the patient expectations are discussed.
Step 3- is a hard tissue analysis, which helps find out how much of the bone is present. If the bone is deficient, then with predictable techniques, bone augmentation can be done. A simultaneous bone graft with the implant can be done in many cases.
Step 4- is a soft tissue analysis. Here the gum type is assessed, so as to understand the final aesthetics that can be achieved.
The above information will help the dentist decide if the case is appropriate for an immediate dental implant.
