Immediate loading - Teeth loaded within 3 days of implant surgery
Single piece implantology- minimizes failure of implants due to interface problems between the connections which exist in conventional two and three piece implants
Basal bone support- most of 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 cortical bone also has a much faster and stable repairing capacity
Minimally invasive - in most edentulous situations, the single piece screw type implants can be inserted in a minimally invasive fashion – often flapless 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 edema and healing at the procedure sites are rapid and often non-eventful.
Unfavorable bone situations- Avoidance of bone augmentation / grafting, sinus lifts and nerve trans-positioning – These implants are unique in that they utilize the available bone in the best possible manner to avoid bone augmentation procedures. With conventional implants, the available bone is modified to suit the implants. With the basal implants, implants are selected or adapted to suit the available bone – with respect to quality and quantity. In the case of atrophied mandible, implants can be placed transversely (mainly the BOI implants are used here) above the mandibular canal taking the horizontal bone support or bicortical implants can be placed bypassing the mandibular nerve, engaging the lower cortical border of the mandible. Thus, bone augmentation / grafting procedures and complex procedures such as inferior alveolar nerve transpositioning are almost completely eliminated. In the case of atrophied maxilla with an unfavorable maxillary sinus situation for implants, the sinus is bypassed with the basal implants, taking support from the bone anterior and posterior to the maxillary sinus (tubero-pterygoid implants), thereby eliminating the need for bone augmentation and sinus lifts, almost completely.
Basal implants work extremely well in patients with acute destructive periodontitis- where the mobile teeth have little or no bone support at all by facilitating implant placement and immediate loading soon after extractions.
Peri-implantitis incidence -Peri-implantitis is the single most common cause for failure of conventional implants. Judicious use of basal implants eliminates the threat of peri-implantitis by almost 98%.
Revolutionary designs and features-of the basal implants help the implantologist in treating a wide variety of cases which cannot be attempted with the conventional two / three – piece crestal implants.
Medically compromised situations – Basal implants work fine in controlled diabetics, in smokers and in patients who have little or no bone for conventional implants. Thus, Basal implants offer a unique opportunity to the implantologist to treat cases which cannot be treated with the conventional implant system
