With regard to implants, it has become quite famous in newspapers and television, and many people have heard about it. However, when we ask questions from patients in our dental clinic, we often don’t understand well, or often misunderstand the wrong information. Some people thought that implants = dentures. Therefore, I would like to explain in detail about the implants, including the pros and cons.
右の図でご説明いたします。まず、インプラントは3つの部分に分かれています。I will explain it on the right. First, the implant is divided into three parts.
The fixture is the part of the implant body. In other words, this is an implant. The main body is in the bone, not the cover that is visible above. This is unexpectedly unknown. Therefore, the most important part is hidden in the bone. Fixtures are surgically punctured and embedded in bones. This fixture will stick to the bone in about 3-6 months. Then it will be in the form of making a top cover. If this fixture does not stick to the bone, the surgery will not work.
An abutment is the foundation that stands on the implant body. If there is no foundation, you can’t put a cover. This foundation is the connection between the implant body and the covering. This foundation has a variety of shapes and materials. Select and set the most appropriate one.
The superstructure is the covering of the implant. This is the most visible part of the mouth, and many people mistake this as an implant. This part is only a part of the cover, so it can be replaced if it breaks or breaks. Since the superstructure also has various shapes and materials, the most suitable one will be selected and set.
インプラントの利点について About the benefits of implants
インプラントの利点は様々ありますが、特に重要な利点をいくつか挙げておきます。There are various benefits of implants, but here are some of the most important benefits.
①他の歯に影響しないで独立して歯を作ることができる Can make teeth independently without affecting other teeth
②ご自身の歯と同じようにしっかりと食事ができる You can eat as well as your own teeth
③見た目が天然の歯と同じように自然 Looks like natural teeth
I think that the advantage is a particularly wonderful part.
インプラントの欠点について About the drawbacks of implants
インプラント治療にも欠点があります。Implant treatment also has drawbacks.
①メンテナンスをしっかり行わないと天然の歯よりも歯周病になりやすい Without proper maintenance, it is more likely to have periodontal disease than natural teeth
②手術でうまくいかない場合がある Surgery may not work.
③骨が少ない方や痩せている方にはインプラント治療ができない場合がある Implant treatment may not be possible for those with few bones or those who are thin
④自費治療のため、費用がかかる Expenses for self-paying treatment
Thus, there are advantages and disadvantages to implants. Also, depending on the bone thickness and density, it may not be possible. Therefore, it is a very recommended treatment method for those who have solid bones. Implant maintenance is very important. For this reason, it is essential that dentists go to regular maintenance, so it is important to have a habit of going to regular checkups. Compared to dentures and bridges (a treatment that sharpns the adjacent teeth and connects the coverings to create a bridge), this is a treatment that allows you to eat comfortably without affecting other teeth.
最新のインプラント治療について About the latest implant treatment
Implant treatment is constantly evolving. In the past, failed cases due to implant surgery, which had been a hot topic in newspapers, magazines, and television, can now be performed more reliably and safely. In particular, methods for implant treatment by analyzing 3D images of CT images performed at my dental clinic are becoming more widespread. As a result, it was possible to confirm the bone shape and the position of nerves and blood vessels in advance, and to plan the implant surgery.
In addition, a method called non-flap surgery has become possible as a further development. This is a method of implant surgery without cutting the gum because the bone structure is known by 3D analysis. As a result, patients can undergo implant surgery with less pain and faster healing. Until now, surgery to cut the gums inevitably caused pain and delayed healing after the operation. Those who were scared of surgery and who had given up the implants were able to receive treatment with greater peace of mind.
In this way, implant treatment has developed into a more reliable treatment. It has become a treatment that patients can choose with peace of mind. If you have lost your teeth, please consider implant treatment. I think that you can feel a more comfortable treatment than you think. Please consult your dentist once.
This is to sterilize the caries by applying ozone to the caries part only. You can sterilize 99.9% of caries bacteria by just touching the caries for 20 seconds. However, it did not penetrate so much because it was too expensive.
It is actively used in environments where it is inevitable that the human body will be harmless, such as advanced purification systems for tap water, purification of indoor air, disinfection of pools and hot springs, and maintenance of food freshness through sterilization. It is.
This method is a method to sterilize dental caries by mixing three kinds of drugs. This is a treatment that we also have in our dental clinic. However, in this treatment, management of the procedure and medicine is important. If the technique and storage are not performed accurately, no effect will be obtained. For this reason, it is necessary to have a solid technical acquisition and thorough management. Until now, the treatment of dental caries has been to scrape away the infected bacteria with the infected teeth. However, in that case, there was a risk that the bacteria would be left behind because they were invisible. Therefore, medical science is the same as the idea, and it is said that 3mix-MP is based on the method of direct sterilization with drugs.
In ozone treatment, it is possible to sterilize the bacteria of the caries without sharpn the teeth. However, it is necessary to repair the holed part after sterilization. Normally, it will be sealed with white plastic, but the tooth material infected with carious bacteria is softly decalcified and the plastic material used to repair it often does not stick well. Therefore, it will be difficult to treat without removing the infected tooth because it will be repaired by shaving the infected tooth to some extent.
Next, regarding the 3mix-MP method, in order to sterilize the bacteria of the caries, a mixture of three types of antibiotics is placed in the cavity of the caries and sealed. In this case, if the blockade is not perfect, it will not be effective. For this reason, as in the case described above, the portion infected with the bacteria of the caries is cut to some extent to produce a fresh tooth, and then the filling with plastic is not necessarily a treatment that does not cut at all.
In this way, it can be said that these treatments reduce the amount of teeth compared to normal caries treatments, but they are not completely eliminated. There are so many inquiries about people who are not good at cutting teeth and vibrations, so some people are disappointed to explain these details. However, there is no doubt that treatment can still be quite comfortable. However, if the treatment method is not perfect, the effect may not be achieved and it may not be successful.

We will upload articles with various contents from this time. I will write everything from dentistry to personal diaries. Please take a look when you are free. We also uploaded a video on youtube, so please check it out.
Then it is the main subject.

The latest technology is introduced more technically than any other manufacturer. The development here has spread to other manufacturers. Due to its long history, various case results have been accumulated and it is a highly reliable manufacturer.
Aso aliner is a Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece originally developed by the Institute of Technology. Therefore, each time the patient’s teeth are cast, a mouthpiece is made at the laboratory. This advantage can be corrected more accurately because it can be corrected each time a slight error occurs during correction.
smileTRU can assist us with diagnosis by an overseas orthodontist, so you can make a plan with a deeper diagnosis. The most important thing in Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece is to make the part more reliable for diagnosis and treatment planning.

マウスピース矯正の費用について About the cost of Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece
The cost varies depending on the manufacturer and period. In the case of my dental clinic, Invisalign costs 898,000 yen regardless of the period, Asoaliner costs 298,000 yen or more, and SmileTRU costs 350,000 yen or more. For simple cases, it can be done at a much lower cost than normal correction.
マウスピース矯正で行う処置について About treatment to Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece
There are two procedures that need to be performed in Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece. Attachment installation and IPR.
Attachments are plastic protrusions that attach to the tooth surface. Move the teeth firmly by hooking the mouthpiece on this. It also has a role to keep the mouthpiece itself from getting removed immediately.
IPR is a treatment that creates a gap by cutting between teeth. This will create a space between the teeth and allow you to cure the teeth. If there is absolutely no space to move the teeth, you may need to remove the teeth.
Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece is required to be held as well as normal Orthodontic treatment. Retention is a treatment that keeps the current tooth alignment for a while so that it does not go back. For holding, a holding device is used, but in the case of Orthodontic treatment with mouthpiece, it can be held with a mouthpiece as well. Therefore, it can be held in an inconspicuous state. The retention period is approximately two years. If you are worried about going back, you may be holding for longer
Although we have explained the features of the mouthpiece in this way, various options may be required depending on the patient’s teeth arrangement, so if you are interested, please check and diagnose at the dentist once Please give me. I would like to support you so that everyone’s teeth line up will be clean and you will be able to laugh.
