The dental restoration process for congenital implanted patients faces many disadvantages because the patient does not have the jaw to hold and support the denture. However, there are Vietnamese doctors who have successful dental implants for these cases.

 What is the solution for people with no birth defects

Congenital implantation is a condition where the patient has no teeth since birth. This is a very rare disease (1 in 100,000 births), one of the most serious forms of epithelial dysplasia (a disorder of the genitals).

So far, to solve the problem of aesthetics with chewing function, patients often use removable dentures but this solution is not really effective. Since the patient has no teeth since birth, resulting in no growth of the jawbone, the gums are thin and thin, the denture is removed after a period of use becomes loose, moving in the mouth, resulting in eating up. hard.

The dental restoration process for congenital implanted patients is very disadvantageous because patients without a jawbone maintain and support the denture, while wearing the denture for a long time. severe, upper jaw on the bottom of the sinus cavity, lower jaw bone occupying the nerve.

First Vietnamese dental implants for patients

In Vietnam, TS-BS Vo Van Nhan - Director of Nhan Tam Dental Center is the first successful dental implant for congenital implant.

The first case, made by Dr. Nhan in mid-2016, is a 30-year-old female patient with no congenital malformation, so the jaw bone does not develop. In addition to wearing a denture from a young age, the upper and lower jaw of the patient is severely impaired, so restoration with traditional dental techniques is not possible.

After examining and examining X-ray films, BS. Nhan said this is a very special case, the upper jaw of the patient to the bottom of the sinus and jaw bone under the nerve pathway.

To restore only one solution is to perform two simultaneous techniques: nerve displacement, implant implants for lower jaw restoration and implants implantation of cheekbones for restoration of maxillary teeth.

This method has the advantage of reducing the number of surgeries and the length of treatment, allowing patients to have teeth immediately after surgery. However, the simultaneous implementation of two complex techniques on the same patient is a major challenge for the physician, not only in terms of surgery, prosthetics but also in the chewing function. Beauty. So, in the world, very few doctors have successfully implemented these two techniques simultaneously

Dr. Vo Van Nhan and the surgical team

The case of congenital congenital second child was BS. Surgery in early 2017 is a 23-year-old man suffering from postpartum dysplasia syndrome. Patients with no teeth and jaw bone of patients with severe digestion, the solution using removable dentures only aesthetic and not solve the problem of eating chewing. 

Through examination and evaluation, BS. Recognizing that this is also a difficult case, the prognosis to not break the nerve as well as overcome the possible complications should be studied thoroughly before deciding to apply two techniques simultaneously that is the nerve impulse, implant implants cheek bone to restore the patient's teeth
