In recent decades, the materials used to perform dental work have begun to be more numerous. Thus, dentists were able to use polymers, bioactive glass, aluminum oxide.
Currently, dental implants are made of several types of materials. There are ceramic implants, implants that can be bioactive and Bioinert. One of the most popular ceramic materials for dental implants is zirconium, due to its very high strength, but also because it mimics the appearance of a natural tooth very well. Metal Dental implants are also used, the best known being titanium. The titanium screws are well accepted by the human body and have a long life span.
The materials used must meet certain conditions: to integrate with the human bone, to be immune to corrosion, biocompatible, resistant, to present the tolerance to the instruction and the ability to connect with the bone and other tissues (osteointegrability).
This material is characterized by the almost equal elasticity of the bone and the attenuation functions of the masticatory forces. The plaque does not adhere to the BioHPP and the work done in this material has a low weight. In addition to elasticity and weight, the BioHPP is an aesthetic, given in white color.
It can be said that at this time metal ceramic is the standard, although it is inadvisable to have on both the arcade works made of this material. Metal ceramic has resistance, is achieved through a process of manufacturing very well documented and recognized by most users, and therefore it is within the reach of all technicians.
Although very popular, this material presents pluses and minuses. Zirconium is promoted and preferred by many patients due to the white color, the ease of getting it, the ease of liking it with various ceramic materials, increased acceptance, low price. As disadvantages, we must bear in mind that the zirconium works are heavier and the harder to control this material, in the design and execution phase of the work, which causes these processes to become susceptible to error.
BioHPP + composite
This material is the most friendly material for implants due to its characteristics: elasticity almost similar to that of bone, strength, low weight, familiarity with most dental technicians.
On the day of intervention
After receiving your implants, your body begins to integrate them. It is very important from a biomechanical point of view that they remain united by the provisional work. It is a moment of accommodation, but also of fulfilling the promise of having fixed teeth on the same day. Gum needs a healing period and so does the bone that supports implants. During the healing period it is important that implants are connected with this work from a material that can take over from the masticatory forces. Until the stable situation of tissues around implants is obtained it is good to wear this provisional work.
Once your implants are integrated, you can benefit from a new work, in accordance with your aesthetic and functional expectations. Often, patients who have benefited from the treatment of SKY fast & fixed™ treatment can choose, together with the specialist doctor, the moment they opt for completion of the definitive work. The definitive work has more resistance and is better suited to the new gingival situation.
