Discuss the surgical management of implants in omsDental implant surgery in OMS is an osseous procedure accomplished by placing some dental prostheses on the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It may involve several procedures depending on the condition of the patient. Implant surgery in OMS is a frequent procedure in a dental clinic, and OMS are essentially equipped with the knowledge to manage these cases and their complications.

Everything I need to know about implants

Dental implant surgery requires tooth extraction for the damaged or impacted tooth, jaw preparation for patients with an inadequate bone structure to support the implant then the placement of the implant. Dental implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure completed in several stages. As surgeons have to allow healing periods between these stages, the process could be months long.

The jaw and gums have to be allowed time to heal and osseointegrate, then the abutment is placed, and later, after the pontic has been custom-fashioned, it is placed on the abutment. The dentist will make an incision that re-exposes the gums to place an abutment. This facilitates its attachment to the implant. The gum flap is then stitched around it for the crown to fit.

Bone grafting is necessary to provide solid ground for the implant for patients with deteriorated or weak jawbones. A natural bone from another part of the body or synthetic material can be used for this support. The procedure involves several dental specialists alongside OMS surgeons, including periodontists and prosthodontists, to ensure minimal risks and excellent post-op results. The procedure is carried out under anesthesia or sedation.

Dental surgeries have a high success rate, depending on the care given. The dentist has to perform examinations throughout treatment and recovery to ensure that the patient heals, using dental examination techniques including X-ray and AI technology. Patients have to schedule follow-up appointments and ditch habits that would risk complications.
