Comparison of traditional dental implant vs basal implant

Dental implant (classic) VS basal implant

Here are the differences between basal implant and traditional dental implant:

  • Smooth surface for the basal implant and rough for the traditional dental implant.
  • Larger diameter of the traditional dental implant than the one of the basal implant .
  • The basal implant does not require a bone graft even when there is a lack of bone.
  • The basal implant is placed in the 2nd layer of the cortical bone. Therefore, its name is a bi-cortical implant. The traditional dental implant is placed in the spongy part of the bone, the alveolar bone.
  • The basal implant is said to be immediate, it can be placed immediately after tooth extraction and its prosthesis is fixed within 72 hours of placing the basal implant. Conventional dental implants require a period of osseointegration of 3 to 4 months before placing the prosthesis fixed.
  • The basal implant can easily be removed or corrected. The classic dental implant is very complex to be extracted. Its removal leads to the destruction of an important bone mass.

BAx basal implant vs traditional dental implant

BAx basal implant

The failure rate is therefore close to 0 for complete restorations .

The success rate on a single tooth is 96%

The implant is made of smooth titanium. No peri-implantitis has been observed on a Bax basal implant ( immediate loading strategic implant)

Basal implant risks

Traditional dental implant

The loss of a single conventional dental implant affects the complete success of the jaw. It is recommended for the replacement of a single tooth.

The dental implant is made of rough titanium, the risk of peri-implantitis (loss of the dental implant) is therefore greater.

Risks of rejection in traditional dental implant

Corrective procedure

BAx basal implant

In the event of failure, the implant can be immediately replaced without waiting time or damage to the bone tissue thanks to its spiral shape.

Basal implant corrections

Traditional dental implant

The removal of the traditional dental implant causes considerable damage considering of its large diameter. It is then necessary to proceed with a bone graft and to respect a period of several months for the osseointegration.

Removal of dental implant

Bone graft & Sinus lift

BAx basal implant

No bone graft. The basal implant (Strategic Implants) is placed in the cortical bone. The most mineralized part of the bone. The latter is not subject to resorption. Never perform a bone graft before a basal implant.

Basal implant without bone

Traditional dental implant

The implant is placed in the cancellous part of the bone. When its height and thickness is not sufficient, a bone graft is inevitable. For this, a window is opened through the cortex and material is inserted to fill the internal part of the bone.

Bone graft

Infection and peri-implantitis

BAx basal implant

Studies have shown that the polished titanium used for BAx implants significantly reduce the risk of infection and peri-implantitis.

Traditional dental implant

Peri implantitis is the main cause of loss of a traditional implant . The bacteria attach themselves to the rough surface of the implant.

Number of implants

BAx basal implant

The protocol set up by Professor Stefan Ihde makes possible the placement of a minimum of 10 implants on the upper jaw and 8 implants on the lower jaw. In this way, the chewing forces are perfectly distributed over the whole lenght of the jaw.

Basal implant: Operation

Traditional dental implant

The number of implants are 4 or 6 located on the frontal part only.

Dental implant: All On 4

Processing time

BAx basal implant

The treatment takes between 3 to 5 days but the patient is requested to stay a week in order to carry out check ups.

Immediate basal implant

Traditional dental implant

When the patient has enough bone, it is not necessary to perform a bone grafting, the protocol foresees 3 to 6 months.

Dental implant: Treatment


BAx basal implant

Offers a large number of different models and designs. The patient has the chance to visualize the final result beforehand and can make modifications.

Dental prosthesis on basal implants

Traditional dental implant

Aesthetics in the mouth. A temporary acrylic prosthesis is made. The patient must have a new prosthesis in the following year. This is not included in the base price.

Patients at risk

BAx basal implant

The basal implant makes it possible to treat patients noted to be "at risk" This is particularly the case for patients who smoke, have diabetes and osteoporosis.

Traditional dental implant

The failure rate is very important for smokers as well as for patients with osteoporosis. Same goes to patients with diabetes.
