what are basal implants?

Basal implantology is also known as cortical implantology. Basal dental implantology is a progressive branch of prosthetic dentistry that deals with employing the basal cortical portion of the jaw bones for retaining the dental implants which are uniquely designed to be accommodated in the basal cortical bone regions.
Our teeth are placed in the alveolar bone, also known as the crestal bone of the jaw. These are the less denser portion of the jaw. Once the teeth are lost, the crestal bone starts to recede and undergo bone resorption. The bone that remains after all the gradual loss of bone structure is known as the basal bone. Basal bone is less prone to infections and resorption. It is very dense and corticalized and provides excellent support and better retention to the implants. Conventional implants are placed in the crestal bone which might give a compromised stability and support but the dental basal bones provides an improved support.

What is gum depigmentation?

The epithelium of gingiva contains cells called melanocytes. These cells are responsible for melanin pigmentation, which is seen as black spots or patches on the gum surface. Certain medicines, systemic diseases and habits like smoking can also cause gum depigmentation. Darkening of gums can also occur due to some gum diseases like ‘trench mouth’
Gum depigmentation, also called gum bleaching, is a cosmetic dental procedure performed to lighten and remove black spots and patches on the gum caused by melanin. 

Procedures used for gum depigmentation
Mainly 2 techniques are employed – laser and surgical

Laser : Dental laser targets melanocytes and ablates them, which in turn reduces the production of melanocytes. Similar to laser skin resurfacing, laser gum depigmentation destroys the top most layer of gums. This lightens the gums and gives them the natural pink colour. Treatment with laser ablation is minimally invasive and most effective. The healing time is speedy as well and patient discomfort is minimal.


In earlier days, surgical procedures were employed for gum lightening. Scalpels and rotary tools were used to physically abrade the gums. This method is more painful, more invasive and also more expensive.
Lasers are always superior to surgical depigmentation methods.

Before starting the treatment, your doctor may advice you deep cleaning and administer antibiotic drugs to rid off any persisting gum infections.
