Basal implants are single piece implants in which the teeth connecting component of an implant is pre-fused to the implant body, this is also called a single piece implant. Before having a brief view of this implant let us know what are the types of bone present in our body.
There are two types of bone that help in implantation, one is hard or basal cortical bone another is soft or cancellous bone. Conventional implant( two-piece implant) uses this cancellous bone for implantation and basal implant ( single piece implant) uses basal cortical bone for implantation.
Basal bones are the strongest bones in our body the implant uses this bone for rigid fixation and gets anchored to the bone.
Usually, teeth will be replaced within 24 hrs to 3 days to fix the teeth on a basal implant.
Can single teeth be replaced with a single basal implant?
Mostly yes, but when replacing a single molar it will take the support of two implants.
No, the procedure is done under local anesthesia so there will not be any pain during and after placement.
Do special procedures like sinus lifting and bone grafting required for placement of basal implants?
No, in fact, basal implants are discovered to avoid those procedures.
Not like conventional implants, these implant procedures for full mouth rehab will take approximately ten implants in the upper jaw and eight implants in the lower jaw. The implant teeth can be fixed in 74hrs. The teeth are not upgradable.
Cost of the basal implant – $2400 per arch
