Conventional Dental Implants

Conventional dental implants are traditional implants with two separate pieces. The one piece in the actual implant which goes into the bone and other piece (abutment) connects with the implant below and supports the tooth. The component which connects the implant and the abutment is called the ‘Connecting Screw’.

Lots of advancements have taken place in the field of traditional two piece and three piece implants in the past 2-3 decades. However the difficulties are with the ‘rough surface’ of the conventional implants. The combination of the rough surface technique and the connecting area between the two components leads to the most common and widespread complication of implant dentistry… called Periimplantitis.

  • The rough surface allows bacterial growth over the implant surface, when they are exposed to the oral cavity.
  • The connecting area between abutment and implants exhibits micro movements under function, which in turn and invites bacteria to populate and colonize over that junction.

Peri-implantitis has been described as a ‘Tsunami’ of implant complication, affecting the implant patients worldwide.

The advancements in basal implants, allows a predictable dental implant treatment with less or no risk of peri-implantitis.
