What are the benefits of implants?

Implants can replace the loss of a natural tooth without the need to wear neighboring teeth for the preparation of a fixed prosthesis or removível.Em cases of partial dentures, this can be replaced by implants you get,without prejudice or overhead brackets on teeth natural. This allows a considerable increase in the lifetime of these teeth, as there is a better distribution of masticatory loading between teeth and implants.
In addition, due to the fact of the prostheses remained stable in its position, common situations, such as irritation of the gums, pain and insecurity due to lack of stability and retention of partial or full dentures areeliminadas.Para edentulous, the use of implants carries benefits to their quality of life. The "teeth" standardcan sometimes be replaced with prosthetics you stay on implants, or removable prosthesis (overdenture)that have better retention and stability for added comfort and security to its bearer.

What happens if an implant fails?

The success rate currently exceeds 95% and technique is constantly evolving, improving on one hand thesurgical phase and the other improving the aesthetics of próteses.Portanto, our statistics will overcomingparticular these inclusive results.
Currently, if an implant fails it is possible to replace it, solving the problem or using bone grafts to improve the anchoring of the implant.

Boy believes that smile again

Dentist extracted all the teeth of Cesar Oliveira Ferreira. Now he tries to adapt to new life, while the case is not resolved

Pending the outcome of some tests and preparing for other examinations essential for defining the direction of their dental treatment, the student Cesar Oliveira Ferreira, 17, will try to adapt to the reality that was imposed after the surgery that left him without any teeth. The teenager, who has a mental disability, according to the father, caused by problems during labor, stopped going to school and had to replace the normal diet of liquids.

"I'm just eating soup," he said yesterday morning to PEOPLE. The return to school in the Association of Parents and Friends of Exceptional Children (Handicapped), according to him, is being delayed due to treatment. But despite the unexpected changes, Caesar is optimistic that smile again and lead a normal life. "I'm more relaxed," said the boy.

A resident of Fern (DF), he had the teeth pulled out in a surgery performed on Sept. 24 by the dentist Wilson Oliveira Santos, at the Hospital Regional da Asa Norte (Hrani), Brasilia (DF). With two wisdom teeth affected by decay, the teenager should have just had these teeth extracted. But the waking up, he realized that his teeth had been removed 28. "When I woke up with no teeth and I was nervous," said Cesar, who only met the dentist on the day of operation.

Wide mobilization to solve case

Cesar Oliveira Ferreira, 17, said the dentist Wilson Oliveira Santos claimed that the patient had a "pathology" to justify radical surgery. The case went to the police, the Regional Council of Dentistry of the Federal District (DF-CRO) and mobilized the Federal District Governor Jose Roberto Arruda.

After visiting the family of a teenager last week, the governor said the state is responsible for repairing the damage done and investigate, punish those responsible. A team of Health Department of the DF is responsible for dealing with Caesar. Councillors CRO-DF are also following the service guy.

"He's taking care of very skilled professionals," said Alfredo Ferreira Vieira, Cesar's father, confident in the successful treatment of the child. In the coming days, Caesar must undergo a CT scan. The chairman of CRO-DF, Julius Caesar, all features of dentistry will be used to recover the oral health of adolescents. A resource may be the implantation of 26 of 28 teeth extracted.

Delegate if that clears heard witnesses

Yesterday morning, Alfredo Ferreira Vieira and Maria Oliveira Aldenora, parents of Cesar Oliveira Ferreira, were at the Police Precinct 5 of the Federal District (DF), which clears the case. The delegate Laertius Rossetto heard some witnesses. He said the date of the testimony of the dentist Wilson Oliveira Santos has not been set. The delegate informed the press that the dentist can respond to criminal prosecution for very serious injury.

Wilson Oliveira Santos may suffer a punishment, and ethical and professional until you have revoked the right to pursue dentistry. The Regional Council of Dentistry of the Federal District (DF-CRO) is investigating whether there was failure to conduct. "It's a professional respect that has been operating for over 10 years in the Department of Health and has full right of defense," said the president of the CRO-DF

Dental implant price

The cost of implants varies greatly from case to case. There are simple and uncomplicated implants and there are extremely complicated. They can be made with resin teeth with porcelain or pureThere is also thenational and imported (which are better and more expensive)and also of various sizes and thicknesses, which will depend on the patient's bone structureIt is necessary to observe what is best suited to the client and the personal choices of each person.

Also one must take into account that the greater the number of implants to be placed, the lower the final price. In general the price ranges from one thousand, two thousand dollars and five thousand dollars. Butthere are always ways of tradingdepending on the caseBecause treatment will only be ready in two orthree months there are alternatives to long-term paymentThere is also cost-effectiveWhen viewed all recommended maintenance, implants can last up to five years.

Free Dental Implants

If for some the year only starts after Carnival, so many began only in March. Brazilian culture is a difficult to change. Actually we are starting the year in earnest this week. Hopefully with all the batteries are rechargedwith a lot of energy to make this one of the best years of their lives.
But for us to start the year well, the most important are patient to place implants or make your dentures. Togeneral practice the situation is difficult for implants (was written in the plural), is even harder (whichsingular). And something must be done to change and not wait for better days, which do not.
If patients do not come from spontaneous generation, the old theory of Charles Darwin, we need togenerate them by artificial insemination, or stem cells as it is more fashionable, using concepts ofmarketing Philip Kotler.

For they do not perceive a need, we have to be subtle. And modern. To do so is a suitable implant-basedinformation system, linked to your database. Fast and cheap, almost free. See how easy it is.

Dental implant can be faster and cheaper

A new material created by researchers at the Institute of Biological Sciences, Federal University of Minas Gerais (ICB / UFMG) may shorten the recovery time of dental implants in people who have had bone loss.

Using carbon nanotubes and hyaluronic acid, the researchers came up with a new material that can reduce the three months to six weeks healing time. After trying unsuccessfully to use acid separately, they decided to coat the titanium implants used in carbon nanotubes associated with hyaluronic acid.

"Titanium is actually a support, is a kind of steel that connects two parts. In our experiment, and unite end to end, we promote healing. What is the biological effect is hyaluronic acid. We created a new material mixing the nanotube and acid alone degrades very quickly in contact with saliva and blood, "explains lead author, Joseph Anderson Ferreira, Department of Morphology of the ICB.

In addition to reducing the healing time, carbon nanotubes should also reduce the costs of the procedure.

According to Ferreira, the nanotube is an expensive material, but the amount used in the procedures is very small, which makes it viable. "Our expectation is that the price drop further with the implementation of the Technology Center of UFMG Nanotubes" he says.

During the experiment, the researchers also ended up developing new uses for an old material. "The nanotube is presented in the form of a gel, which makes it very unstable in an oral environment. With the carbon nanotube, we put the material into a bar shape, sponge and powder. This eases the way of use, increasing the biological characteristic of the substance to promote healing, "he says.

Now researchers coordinated by Anderson Ferreira already working to multiply the use of carbon nanotubes "functionalized" with hyaluronic acid for bone defects larger and more complex. "When you extract a tooth is a cavity formed bone, but this is a small defect. We want to explore major defects. In brief, studies will be made using

College offers free dental treatment

Have you taken a beautiful smile today? There is no better way to win people's sympathy. When it comes to getting a job, then, is fundamental: who hires someone who is always frowning? Sometimes, the lack of a smile has nothing to do with mood. It is ashamed to show his teeth.

Dental treatment is not cheap, but there is a place where you can get some free dental treatment. It is the Faculty of Dentistry of Recife (FOR), in Arthur Street Coutinho, 143, Santo Amaro, Recife.

Through the clinic's social, the Faculty offers services such as fillings, extractions, root canals, among others, in order to socialize the treatment and make it accessible to people with low incomes. The focus is on dental implant. The service is part of the practical module specialization course in implantology.

To meet those interested in treatment, clinical social has a team of ten students and two professors of specialization. The average capacity of service is 15 implant surgeries, said the coordinator of FOR in Recife, Tereza Frazão.

The implant treatment is indicated in patients who have lost one or more dental elements by extensive caries, periodontal disease (softening of the teeth), a fractured tooth (crown or root), unsuccessful dental treatment (root canal therapy, crowns, fillings etc..) and dental injuries (accidents).

The time of implant treatment may be variable and depend on several factors. Among these, a major bone is the amount available to allow the installation of an implant. The integration time of a graft taken from the patient is six months, and the bone bank grafts, which require a greater integration time is 10 months.

Conventional treatment involves the installation of implants and later, you must wait a period of osseointegration for four to six months depending on the region (mandible or maxilla, respectively).

After the integration period of the implant requires a second surgery consisting of a small cut in the gum in order to expose the implant in the oral cavity through the installation of a healer. This second surgery is simple and fast, which will, after 20 to 30 days, the procedures for molding and making of the prosthesis.

There are treatments that are immediate, ie, the patient is undergoing surgery and installation of implants immediately after surgery an implant is made, reducing the treatment time. The value of this approach is increased by having numerous benefits. Regardless of the type of treatment, the main objective is to restore esthetics and chewing for all patients.

The screening service will be held for those interested in the next 12 days, 13 and 14 August in Clinical Social own. It is not necessary to prove the social situation to be served. The clinic offers all the social dental service, including general practitioners and other specialties within dentistry. The phone is (81) 3423-7553 - Ext: 24.

You can also get care in free clinics attached to the other two courses in dentistry that exist in Recife. At the University of Pernambuco (UPE), the info phone number is (81) 3184-7661. And at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) number is (81) 2126-7508.

Dental implant surgery without cutting

Over many years dentistry has evolved, however it was not disseminated to a large population. Examples are dental implants to "immediate loading" (returns of teeth within 72 hours), which today can be made even without cuts.
The dental implant surgeries have evolved a lot, have to be smaller, faster and extremely predictable. What is most modern is the procedure of implant placement without the use of the scalpel, or uncut.
Drawing a parallel with medicine, it is very common to be made by video surgery (laparoscopy), thereby decreasing the incision and consequently a faster post-operative and painless. Dentistry does not use a laparoscope, but followed the trend by bringing the uncut implant surgery (keyhole surgery).
The keyhole surgery is that where a guide is tailor-made through a planning computer. This surgical guide is the cornerstone in the planning of implant placement in the correct position without requiring the surgeon make the incision to visualize the bone tissue.
In the conventional technique is made an incision from one side to another of the maxilla and / or to expose the jaw bone, to receive dental implants. In keyhole surgery is not necessary this incision, hence the name "surgery without cuts." How is this possible?
The patient has a CT scan and digital, with a specific computer program to visualize bone and make the placement of implants in place, virtually all of this.
Surgery performed virtually the program generates a file, and this is sent to a company that fabricate the surgical guide, obtained by this prototype, widely used in industry.
With book in hand, it is stabilized in the oral cavity and starts to surgery. This guide comes with holes in its surface, and these are the exact positions that should be placed implants. It is a minimally invasive surgery and almost no bleeding and a postoperative much more comfortable.
All these advances are great benefits to patients because we can combine the keyhole surgery, ie, without cuts, with the load immediate return of the teeth in just 72 hours. No pain and quick return of the teeth are the characteristics of strong treatments.

Failure of the network of clinics for dental implants is expected to have Imbra

The Arbeit Group, which bought Imbra GP Investments last year, expects the court grants the request forvoluntary bankruptcy in early March. The first request made ​​in October, was rejected. In late December, the controllers of the network of clinics, dental implant again to file for bankruptcy, claiming to have purchased a bill of goods - the Arbeit paid $ 1 for Imbra. According to the group's lawyer, Esper Chacur Son, the new owners found a hole in the box greater than expected. Imbra's debt is estimated at $ 221 million. Whilebankruptcy is not imposed, the other pendenga Imbra faces in court. At the request of the prosecutor, the court of St. Paul has blocked the assets of the company and its former executives to ensure future payment of compensation to affected customers. Besides the companies had assets locked Jorge Luiz MartinsGualberto Rocha, Fabio Sandri, Raul Vieira de Carvalho Neto, Geraldo Ribeiro de Souza and MarcoAntonio Campos Nishigaki. Picaretagem total!

Learn how to have a white smile with dental implants

The dental implant - a technique which involves placing a titanium pin in place of the roots of missing teeth - has several different techniques. However, according to the surgeon Gabriel Lembo, not all teeth whiteningand natural.

He said there are two types of structures for dental prostheses: the metal, known, and zirconia. But what's the difference? "The advantage of one another is aesthetics. This is because the zirconia has colors similarto natural teeth. Zirconia is indicated for the patient who seeks a proximate result of natural teeth. It is used to hearing earlier (front teeth), which aesthetic values​​, "said the expert.

The production structure of zirconia can be made through a computerized system in 3D, which provides greater adaptation of the play. "With technological advancement, we can provide these benefits to patients.From the classic molding made ​​during the consultation, the software scans accurately the physiology of the mouth. Information is delivered to a device that prepares the internal structures of dental prosthesesaccurately, both in size, and format. This ensures a better fit and aesthetics for the patient, besides the standardization of quality "

How much does a dental implant

The benefits achieved by the implant are greater than the values ​​of the treatment. Currently the advancementof knowledge in implant dentistry and ease of finding qualified professionals to perform the surgery, left the treatment costs more affordable with various forms of payment. The cost depends on the complexity of each case, the amount of installed implants in surgery and choice of materials used in the manufacture of the prosthesis

How long does the implant surgery

The installation of an implant takes about 30 minutes, but can vary depending on the complexity of the caseand the need for additional procedures such as transplants.

Recovery after surgery at the dental implant

There are many complaints from patients and the reasons for complaint is with dentists after tooth extractions.
Whether by pain during the extraction, or even in the postoperative period and there has come more factors into account.
There are certain precautions should be taken into account and must be fulfilled to the letter to avoid problems and complications and they amaze me ... The majority of patients fail to comply.

Among them, we can mention:

- Keep the compress in the extraction site at least 30 to 40 minutes. It depends from person to person ... (It is quite common once the patient leaves the clinic immediately pour the dressing out soon ... Big mistake!)
- Do not suck blood or mouthwash during the first 24 hours. (It is almost 100% sure that the patient will get home and will rinse your mouth out all the blood and "cleanse" the area. Nothing wrong, is only to remove the clot and cause bleeding does not stop or take longer to clot that area)
- No smoking. Not only because tobacco delay healing but also because the act of smoking is sucking and as such ... View previous advice! (Smoking is smoking, smoking will soon following tooth extraction, almost 75% sure!)
- Place ice during the first 24 hours of ice ... 15min 10min interval at least.
- Do not lie down after surgery or do much physical effort or lower his head to aid in clotting. (There are rare patients who lie just barely home and agree with the pad full of blood.)
- On the day of surgery or operation and the next, sleeping with a high cushion, keeping your head above the level of the body.
- Eat foods cold or cold liquids in the early hours, if possible one day. (It helps to reduce swelling and aid in healing)
- In the following days if possible eating liquid or semi-liquid.
- Take medications prescribed by a dentist.
- Maintaining good oral hygiene of the area in the days following the extraction.

Middle class comes in the wake of cheap dental implant

It was noon when the dark-haired woman of about 40 years, lying in the dentist's chair, raised his head with the "window" wide open. She strained to see the team going into the next room, to shoot an interview-ready smile.
The brunette works there in the vicinity, and the girl would talk to the reporter. Enjoyed the lunch hour to install the prosthesis where nature left an incisive break down. Of simple habits and financial equivalent, it represents the new middle class which has invaded the dental practices in the past few years.
It never ends we going to give a Garib ago in the arcades, but he who laughs, happy, are their own dentists."We are living the boom of the second implant, thanks to classes C and D," says the surgeon Arthur Martini, local delegate of the CRO (Regional Council of Dentistry).
He explains that the profession has remained since the booms of the 80s, when viewing metallic arches became fashionable. "Everyone put device and orthodontists 'split' to make money," he says. Then came the first boom of the implants, followed by beauty treatments, between 90 and 2000, so far, the majority restricted to classes A and B in the area south
Martini, himself present in the lower classes with a small office on the outskirts, recalls that in 1992, when specialized, teeth implanted a dozen a month. Today, the other fills the mouth with at least 50 monthly implants.
Flanked by family albums posted on the wall and metal filing cabinet, including a large photo holding a big fish in a river, Martini and unsafe fires, loud and comical comments about the "Brazilian miracle" claimed byLula.
For him, programs such as Bolsa Familia allowed the people to put the beast in spending before disregarded. "I never voted for him, but he has to back [the presidency]. Seventy percent of my patients are new customers and, thanks to him, went to Europe three times. I thought he would return in three years, but with this cancer [ the larynx], I'm worried, "he says.
The Getulio Vargas Foundation said, including the class D, made by those who earn between $ 705 and U.S. $ 1,126, is gaining purchasing power enough to overcome the Class B expenses, now in 2012. The journal Economic Brazil announced recently that this layer calculation must account for running $ 400 billion market next year, a value 15% higher than in 2011.
"This new middle class now has access to the financial system," said the dentist Alexander Villela, which meets in two clinics, one in Ribeirão Center, which has machine and credit card debt. That's where the seller Michele, 21, is completing the treatment of a channel, five fillings and teeth cleaning. She waited three years for repairs, or chewing on the right, to save the tooth, broken at its root. Everything will turn out for $ 750, slightly above the minimum wage that takes in the shop where he works. "I paid half in cash and the remainder will be divided into three times," he explains.
He paid half in cash, it is clear, because she had the money, but not for lack of limit. "With my salary, I would have $ 320 on the card, but in four banks open account to add limits [and enlarge them]," he says.
After she finished the treatment, the mother, a cleaner in Ribeirão company, will turn patient clinic to replace the prosthesis. Installments, too.
