Basal implant: in what way are they different from conventional dental implants?
- Basal implant can and should be loaded: During the implantation of conventional dental implants, in most cases it takes months before the fixation of the permanent replacement. The reason is the osseointegrational process, which has to take place in order for the implants to be strong enough to bear the load of the denture and the pressure of biting and chewing. Basal dental implants, on the other hand, work on different principles. There is no osseointegration: after the surgery the metal supported acrylic replacement connects them and provides stability and strength. There is no months-long waiting; rehabilitation of your jawbone only takes four days.
