Treatment guidelines


Key points

  • To provide patient comfort and reduce pain and swelling after a surgical intervention, analgetic medication is usually administered as a routine.
  • In case of more extensive interventions and some predisposing health conditions (e.g. diabetes) consider preventive antibiosis.
  • Consider possible interferences of some current analgetics and antibiotics with general medication (coagulation prevention, oral contraceptives).
  • Consider possible side effects of medication (for example Reye syndrom associated with Acetylsalicylic acid in children, allergies).

Single implants and their restoration
Endosseous root form implant surgery involves a series of steps that systematically results in the placement of a dental implant. The process typically includes presurgical discussion and instructions, a soft tissue incision, preparation of the bony osteotomy site using progressively larger drills, threading (tapping) the bone when placing implants into dense bone, implant placement itself, cover screw placement, suturing when a soft tissue flap is needed, postsurgical patient instructions, and follow-up care.
