One-stage method - Dental Implants Net


This method involves surgery only once and can simultaneously achieve placement of the implant into the jawbone and attachment of the abutment.
The one-stage method reduces patient burden because surgical treatment is required only once.
However, as the risk of bacterial infection is increased compared with the two-stage method, in most cases, no bone augmentation (to increase quantity of the bone where the implant is to be placed) is performed.

Treatment procedures with one-stage method

  • 1.An incision and a socket are made to place an implant into the jawbone.
  • 2.An implant is placed into the socket.
  • 3.A metal extension called an abutment is connected to the implant body.
  • 4.Over the next three to six months, the implant body and its surrounding bone are allowed to bond firmly together.
  • 5.A mold of the mouth and the teeth is made to create an artificial tooth. Then, the artificial tooth is placed on the abutment.
    * In some cases, a temporary tooth can be placed on the same day as implant placement.
