As a Davenport dentist who does place dental implants, I would like to discuss the BASIC dental implant syetem that I use for my patients.
I will place my own implants including the titanium implant and the crown. Let me explain why I prefer the BASIC implant system.
Many systems use a brutal, bloody and painful system fo implant placement that involves peeling off the gum around the implant during implant placement. Not onlty is this method of dental implant placement painful and outdated, it damages the blood supply to the bone and the implant site diminishing the sucsess of the implant.
With the BASIC system. local anesthetic is given and a small opening the size of a pencil eraser is made in the gum. The implant hole is drilled and then the titanium dental implant is placed in the jaw. A small healing cap is placed over the implant and the implant heals for 4-6 months. Many of my patients have had no post operative pain. Again, the reason most patients have had severe post operatiev pain is because of the removal of the gum. In only rare instances is gum surgery needed.
