Basal Implant: Find YOUR smile!

Implant basal
  • No Bone Graft Needed: The basal implant is placed in the cortex which suffers little or no atrophy
  • Immediate implant in 7 days: The loading is necessarily immediate
  • Success rate close to 100%: Thanks to its smooth surface, cases of peri-implantitis (rejection) are extremely rare on this type of dental implant
  • Micro-invasive: Bone drilling is extremely fine and does not damage bone tissue.

What is the Basal implant?​

The basal implant has been known and practiced for many years, its name comes from the part of the bone in which it is implanted, the basal part, also called cortical bone. It is the most mineralized part of the bone, the hardest. Conversely, the traditional implant is implanted in the spongy part of the bone which requires osseointegration and therefore a long treatment time. 2 types of basal implant. Disc implants (BOI implant) which are the first generation of basal implants, and the latest generation basal implant BAx. Our centers mainly work with the latest generation basal implant.

Implant materials?

Basal implants are made of a stable alloy of medical grade titanium. This material is neutral and allergy-free. So they can last a lifetime. Indeed this material does not degrade and is not subject to any corrosion.

Basal implant definition

The principle of the basal implant is based on its mode of retention. When a traditional implant requires osseointegration (healing of the bone) in the spongy part of the bone, the basal implant is fixed like a screw in the hard and mineral part of the bone. This part of the bone does not osseointegrate. The basal dental implant must therefore be loaded immediately so that the prosthesis acts as a link between each basal implant and can guarantee the correct distribution of masticatory forces over the entire jaw.

Placement of the Basal implant

The placement of the latest generation basal implant and the fixation of the prosthesis are carried out in a single step of 7 days. The complete operation takes an average of 4 days during which the patient will visit the clinic at least 5 times for different tests. The last days will be devoted to control visits.
When a dentist tells you that you have no bone left, he is talking about the spongy part of the bone that is the recipient area for a traditional implant. The basal implant is placed in the cortical part of the bone. This part of the bone usually suffers very little atrophy even after a long period of edentulism. It is the most mineralized part of the bone. We can therefore place a dental implant even with a significant lack of bone when the latter is a basal implant.

Postoperative follow-up

It is strongly advised to entrust the follow-up of your treatment in basal implantology to the practitioner who carried out the care and the placement of the basal type dental implants. He knows your oral situation and has your medical file. Also, the treatment protocol is particular and a particular qualification is necessary. Few dentists have training in basal implantology. However, you can carry out your postoperative follow-up in one of the dental clinics that practice basal implantology.

Maintenance of dental implants

Hygiene and maintenance are imperative.

The rules of hygiene and maintenance of the implants are the same as for natural teeth, namely a thorough brushing for at least 3 minutes, 3 times a day with the movement of the “roller” which consists of placing the brush at 45 degrees on the gum-tooth junction and turn the wrist to deploy all the bristles of the toothbrush up from the gum to the tooth against the tooth surface. Floss or interdental brushes where space permits.
