DENTAL IMPLANTS

A dental implant is a medical device manufactured to replace and support a damaged or missing biological structure, and at times also helps to enhance an existing one. With modern dentistry, replacing a missing tooth has becomes easier. Although for many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures.
But, today, with the advancements of new technologies, now dental implants are available as an option. For such advanced procedures, we provide you the best health care facilities with our skilled Implantologist, who have gone under special training to serve you with the best treatment.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are generally the replacements to your tooth roots.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture, placed into your jawbone after you loose your natural tooth.
Such placements provide a foundation for a fixed or removable prosthesis (dentures) that are made to replace your natural teeth.
Most dental implants are made of titanium, which allows them to integrate with bone without being recognized as a foreign object in our body.
With modern technologies and dental skills, placements of implants have proven to be a successful procedure, having around a 98% success rate.

Types of Dental Implants

There are generally two types of dental implants;
1. Endosteal Implants are placed under the gum but above or on top of the jawbone itself.
2. Sub Periosteal Implants are the type of dental implants that rests on your jaw under the gum tissues. Sub Periosteal implants are no longer used today because they do not provide long term results.

Why would you need a dental implant?

Do you believe you are a good candidate for a Dental Implant?
Let our experts decide! Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. The goal of teeth replacement in dentistry is to restore function as well as esthetics.
When it comes to tooth replacement, generally, there are three options, such as; Removable appliances, dental bridges, or a dental implant.
Dental bridges and removable appliances are generally more common as people fear getting a dental implant. But the main disadvantage of such prostheses is that they usually depend on your existing natural teeth for support.
Whereas dental implants do not need any support from surrounding teeth and get their support from underlying bone.
Our experienced Dental Implantologist will provide you the best advice after examining your oral cavity, whether you are a good candidate for a dental implant or not.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
1. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent improving your appearance.
2. Dentures can slip within the mouth causing you to slur your words and difficulty in speaking. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. It improves your self-esteem
3. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort and provides you ease.
4. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without any hesitation.
5. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you boost your self-esteem.
6. Dental Implants don’t require any tooth reduction, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Therefore, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your oral health.
7. Dental implants are very durable and can last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

Overdentures

While the primary function of dental implants is for teeth replacement, there are areas in which dental implants can assist in other dental procedures.
Due to their stability, dental implants can be used to support a removable denture and provide a more secure and comfortable fit.
Overdentures are the partial or complete dentures that are placed on the underlying tooth structures or dental implants.
These dentures reduce the jaw bone shrinkage and redirect forces and pressure in the mouth, helping the dentures stay stable.

All on four Dental Implants

Are you confused with the name that what do we actually mean by all on four implants?
To understand this term you first need to understand that we have thirty-two teeth in total. Instead of placing a dental implant for every missing tooth, dental advancements suggest you have All on Four Implants, which means 4 implants in each jaw.
Later our dentists, attach the denture to this implant. Such techniques are useful for the patients who lost their all teeth either due to tooth decay or gum disease. All four implants ensure the use of minimal implants to provide you comfort and stability.
Without a doubt, implant dentistry has allowed for more treatment options to replace single and multiple missing teeth with long-term stability.
These dentures are also cost-effective with minimal implant placement.
The cost of All-On-4 dental implants can vary depending on the material used and how many fake teeth you need.

Process of getting a Dental Implant

During the initial stages, our dental Implantologist will examine your mouth and the site where an implant is being considered. Our dentist will numb the surgical area with a local anesthetic to ensure maximum comfort and ease. This local anesthetic also relieves the anxiety that you may be having. The first stage of this procedure involves the extraction of your teeth. At times, the site of a dental implant still has an existing damaged tooth present. In order to prepare for the placement of a dental implant, the tooth will need to be extracted. An alveolar bone graft is placed to achieve a solid base for your implant. This site usually takes about two to six months to heal so that we may continue with the procedure. Whereas in a case where you already have a missing tooth and bone loss is present, a different bone graft may be placed that requires more time to heal. For cases where you have enough bone, a dental implant can also be placed at the same appointment as the extraction. These implants are known as ‘Immediate Implants’ When an implant is to be placed in the maxilla in the posterior region, our dentist may perform a sinus lifting procedure to graft more bone into your sinus as the limited bone is available here for implant placement. Once the strong and adequate bone is present, the site is ready for implant placement.
On the next appointment, a dental implant is placed into your bone with the help of special instruments. A healing cap is also placed and your gums are stitched back. This procedure is totally painless as we perform it under local anesthetics. Soon after the placement of the healing cap, the healing phase begins. During this period, a temporary denture may be placed for aesthetic concerns. Healing usually takes about six months, but this factor generally depends on the quality of the bone. During this time, when the implant is being healed, avoid placing stress over the site, as it may interfere with the healing process. Our dentist may keep you on a follow up to ensure maximum healing and prevent infection. Once the implant has healed properly, it is tested for its successful integration with the bone. The prosthetic part is screwed to the implant. This part is known as an abutment. An abutment serves as a support to the crown or a replaced tooth. An impression is made for such abutment to customize the crown, which is later cemented to this abutment.

Aftercare for your Dental Implant

The success of a dental implant procedure depends on your oral hygiene.

• Keep your mouth as clean as possible.
• Avoid brushing the surgical site for the first few days, but start brushing it slowly once the tenderness disappears.
• Swish your mouth with warm salt water for the first few days as it relieves the discomfort and swelling.
• Try eating soft foods without placing any pressure on the surgical site in initial days.
• Rinse your mouth properly after every meal
• You are required not to smoke unless the surgical site is completely healed as smoking may interferes with the healing process.
• Try only to have cold beverages and avoid hot liquids on the first two days.
• Regular visit to our clinic for dental check-up

You may experience some discomfort and swelling over the surgical site once the local anesthetic wears off.
Our dentist may prescribe you to take over the counter pain killers such as Ibuprofen to ease your pain.

Swelling and tenderness usually resolves within two to three days after the treatment.
Cold packs and ice may help reducing the swelling.
Mild swelling is common for the next few days.

If you still experience any tenderness or bruising after a week, immediately contact us at our clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental Implants are the titanium cylindrical surgical component that is surgically placed in the bone of the jaw of the missing teeth below the gums. Dental Implants are placed to allow your dentist to replace your missing tooth with a new replacement tooth that will look and feel the same as a real tooth. They are also used for denture use and orthodontic purpose.

Why do I need a Dental Implant?

Dental Implant is used for the replacement of the missing teeth as they are the best solution as compared to dentures and bridges. Following are the reasons why you need a dental implant:
1. Looking and feeling great: Dental implants function like and look like healthy and natural teeth. Brush and floss them just like you do your natural teeth. You do not need to remove them for cleaning. They also help you retain your natural face shape and smile.
2. They will last longer or forever: If you take proper care of your Dental Implant they are built to last many decades. Many other options, including certain types of dental bridges and dentures, may need to be replaced as often as every 5 to 10 years, requiring a more significant investment of time and money.
3. Smile and live with confidence: Your dental implants are placed in your mouth with proper care by an experienced Implantologist, so don’t need to worry yourself they won’t slip or click when you talk, eat or laugh. You’ll also find that your speech is more natural. With dental implants, you’ll have the peace of mind to eat what you love, say what you want to say, be as active as you want, and smile broadly with confidence.
4. Protection of facial bone and healthy teeth: After a dental extraction or losing one or more teeth, leaving empty spaces in your mouth can lead to health issues such as jawbone deterioration. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that actually helps stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Getting dental implants as soon as possible after tooth extraction or losing a tooth by any other means helps prevent bone loss at the site. Also, our dentist doesn’t need to grind down your adjacent teeth to anchor bridges or attach partial dentures. Dental implants are the only restorative method that stimulates your natural bone under the missing tooth.

Is Dental Implant placement procedure painful?

The Dental Implant placement procedure can be breakdown into two parts:
Surgical Period: Dental Implants are placed in your mouth surgically by our experienced Implantologist with proper care. This requires them to cut into the gums. As you can imagine, this does sound painful. But before our dentist gets started, they will use a local anesthetic. After the area is completely numbed out, the dentist makes an incision to expose the jawbone. You will feel no discomfort, as the area is entirely anesthetized. After making the area more accessible, a hole is drilled for the implant. While drills might also sound painful, your jawbone has no nerves to feel any pain. The most discomfort you would likely feel is pressure. You won’t feel any of the drilling. The dental implant can then be screwed into place. Once your dentist is satisfied with the placement, he or she will close up the incision. While the local anesthetic is still in effect, the patient will feel no pain at all. Our dentist may give you pain medication before starting the procedure so that when the anesthetic wears off, you have sufficient pain relief.
Recovery Period: You can experience some tenderness after the anesthesia wears off. However, it isn’t unmanageable. Our dentist will likely recommend that you take the painkiller prescribed by our dentist for any discomfort felt during the healing process.

Why are Dental Implants costly?

There are some reasons why dental implants are expensive. Firstly it requires specials skills and an acquired amount of knowledge and technique to get qualified to do Dental Implant procedure and secondly dental implants itself is very costly.
Dental implants consist of three separate parts, the implant post (screw), abutment, and crown. The implant post is made from biocompatible titanium or zirconia. The abutment is custom-designed to fit accurately into the implant post and has additional costs associated with it. Finally, the implant crown is made by local labs, but screw-retained crowns and custom crowns cost much more than traditional crowns do. And then the cost of bone graft, membrane, and suture material, and you’re easily looking at thousands of rupees just for the implant parts. The cost of implant parts is one of the reasons why dental implants cost as much as they do.

Are Dental Implants safe?

Dental Implants are used for more than 50 years and still are the safest and best choice for the replacement of the missing tooth. For the majority of health dental patients, Dental Implants are the successfully safest method if performed by a suitably skilled and qualified professional. Dental implants are typically made from titanium, a metal that is biocompatible with the human body.

What is the success rate of a Dental Implant?

97-98% is the success rate of a Dental Implant. Dental Implant is the treatment of choice by almost all dentists for replacement of the missing tooth.

How much time does a Dental Implant last?

If you take proper care of your Dental Implant and it’s cleaning, practice oral hygiene on daily basis then your Dental Implant can last more than 25 years and longer. Dental Implants are made and designed to be the permanent replacement tooth option for the missing teeth.

What do I need to do after a Dental Implant placement?

It is necessary that you follow the aftercare points told by your dentist. This can include the following:

• Avoid straws or any suctioning for 24-hours after surgery.
• Expect some minor swelling for 2 to 3 days.
• Rinse with salt water 3 to 4 times daily the day after surgery.
• Avoid very hot drinks and foods for the first 48 hours after surgery.
• Stick to a liquid diet for 24-48 hours after surgery.
• Avoid smoking for at least three days following surgery.
• Use painkiller for any discomfort.

What would happen if I don’t go for a Dental Implant?

If you are not choosing Dental Implant as an option you are only making things worse. After 12 months of dental extraction or a missing tooth bone atrophy begins; that is, your bone height and density decrease and deteriorate almost immediately and then if you choose to go for a dental implant it becomes a more expensive procedure and complex because you also have to get a bone graft.
Although you can choose other options as well such as dentures and bridges which are a little costly but not as durable and reliable as Dental Implant. We recommend you to go for Dental Implant, It may be a costly treatment but this wonderful investment surely comes with great benefits in long term with longevity.
