The notion of replacing a tooth with a new one immediately after a tooth extraction is very attractive to all of us. It is important to keep the "status quo" whenever possible -- keeping us from growing old. Now, a dental implant system has been invented and produced to accomplish this dream.
The Sargon® Immediate Load ImplantTM was produced in the early 1990's and has a significant history for being one of the most successful dental implant systems available to the dental community.
The Sargon System is an apically expandable quintapodal root form dental implant fixture. The most effective use is placement immediately after extraction of a non-restorable tooth by extending the tooth socket with an osteotomy and tap (threading) system to facilitate the insertion of the implant. Once the implant is properly positioned, the base of the fixture is expanded to secure and stabilize the artificial root. This stabilization allows the fixture to be loaded. For instance, a provisional tooth can be placed on the implant immediately after placement.
We have discovered that the titanium metal used in artificial human orthopedic joint replacement and dental root replacement is extremely biocompatible with little to no incidence of allergic reaction. Similar to the medical aspect of titanium metal use in the human body, the titanium dental implant is very kind to human tissue. As with any surgical procedure, infection is always a threat to success. Therefore, careful precautions must be taken in order to prevent this problem from occurring.
