It is essential to perform the dental implant if we observe the quantity and quality of the bone remaining in the patient, because the main determinant factors in the prognosis of successful implants are: the professional’s experience and the amount of bone available in the patient.
Bone cavities, under normal conditions and provided that the etiological agent has been eliminated, are repaired through a natural biological process. The extent and speed of repair, however, depend on the anatomical location; etiological agent; the size of the lesion; and the biological characteristics of each individual. Therefore, a long period of time may be necessary for the complexion of the repair process, thus exposing the patient to unnecessary risk and discomfort.
Edentulism is one of the most frequent problems that affects the elderly population and results in pathophysiological changes of the maxillary edges and the modification of its structure.
The advent of dental implants revolutionized the direction of dentistry in the last two decades of the 20th century when its clinical indication was universalized, thus covering oral rehabilitation in individuals totally or partially toothless.
Research has shown a good acceptance of most of the materials used in the manufacture of dental implants, which should be biocompatible with tissues since the success of the procedure depends on the implant-tissue interaction. The indications of dental implants require careful planning and careful analysis of several factors, among which stand out: the evaluation of the quantity and quality of bone tissue in the implant receiving area and anatomical accidents that limit the application of techniques in conventional implantodontia.
