DENTAL IMPLANTS

Replace missing teeth for better function and fashion with dental implants.

 

What Are Dental Implants

Dental implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth making them the best alternative for missing teeth replacement. The implant itself is a biocompatible titanium material that is surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as an artificial tooth root. This provides stability and support for a custom-made crown, which is the visible part of the tooth in the mouth. The result is a restoration that looks and functions just like a natural tooth, allowing patients to eat, speak and smile with confidence. Dental implants are a highly effective and long-lasting treatment for missing teeth.

 

Who can do Dental Implants?

Dental implant surgery needs to be done by skillful and experienced team of Implantologists, Oral surgeon, Periodontist, Prosthodonist and a Neuromuscular Dental Specialist (TMD Specialist ) for it to be highly successful. Primarily, one should look for a well-equipped and technology driven Multispecialty Dental Implant Center with all the specialists under one roof, to start with.

 

Tooth Loss Effects

When you are missing one or more teeth, not only is it a cosmetic concern, but it can also be a concern for your overall and dental health. Having less teeth means that it can be more difficult to eat crunchy and chewy foods such as vegetables, grains, and meats. This makes it difficult to get all the nutrients in your everyday diet. But don’t worry, dental implants can help.

It has been shown that people with full sets of teeth live longer than others who have an incomplete smile. Having missing teeth also puts excessive pressure on existing teeth, making them more likely to break and develop gum disease. This effects multiplies as more teeth are lost, making it difficult to keep the existing teeth healthy.

Single Tooth Replacement by Dental Implant

Single tooth dental implant is the best permanent solution for replacing a missing tooth compared to conventional options like dental bridge or a removable partial denture. A dental crown is fixed over the implant, after being placed in the jaw, to replace or simulate the root.

Multiple Tooth Replacement by Dental Implant

Before The Procedure

If you are missing a row of teeth, it can be a challenging situation. Traditionally, this has been restored with a removable partial denture that clips onto your remaining teeth. Now, however, you can have this restored to full function by multiple teeth replacement with dental implants. If there are only one or two teeth missing, a dental bridge is a possible option.

The First Step – Installing The Implants

This picture shows a common situation where a row of three teeth are missing towards the back of the mouth. A dental bridge will not work in this situation, because there is no tooth towards the rear to anchor to. A removable partial denture could be made, but because of the leverage caused by the very heavy biting forces that occur in this situation, the teeth it would be anchored to, would be weakened. This is a great situation for dental implants.

In one appointment, the implants are placed in the ridge.

Attaching The Teeth

In this situation where there is a row of three teeth that is being replaced, the teeth are attached together for ease of insertion. They are made in world best Dental laboratory, and are matched to the exact shading of your teeth, and are blended into your bite so that they function effectively and comfortably.

Final Result

When your case is completed, you will feel as if you have your own teeth back. The result is attractive, functional, and comfortable.

What Is The Process For Getting a Dental Implant

The process for getting a dental implant can vary slightly depending on your situation. If your tooth has been missing for a long time, there might not be enough bone in your jaw for an implant placement. In this case, we would proceed with a bone graft to add anchoring and support to the implant area.

Once you are ready for an implant, you will be scheduled for an outpatient surgical placement. If the damaged tooth is still in place, it will be removed first. In some cases, an implant can be placed immediately while in others, it might need to heal first. After the post has been placed and your jawbone has healed, then an abutment and crown can be placed to complete the process.

Why Do People Choose Dental Implants

  • Conservative : To place a bridge, the teeth on either side have to be ground down and crowns placed. This is avoided with Dental Implants. Since your healthy teeth are left untouched, this can have a significant long-term benefit for your oral health.Best Dental Implantologist in India

  • Durability : Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implant last a lifetime. Best Dental Implantologist in India

  • Improved comfort : This will act and feel like your own tooth. Unlike dentures, it won’t shift or come out. You will be able to speak and eat with confidence and comfort. Say goodbye to misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.

  • Improved appearance : Dental implant look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

  • Improved speech : With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implant allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

  • Easier eating : Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

  • Improved self-esteem : Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

  • Improved oral health : Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.

Denture Replacement

If all of your upper or lower teeth are missing, dental implants can be placed to support a removable denture or fixed bridge. This can make the denture secure in your mouth, allowing you to comfortably eat crunchy and chewy foods again. Many people who have traditional dentures do not wear them because they are uncomfortable and they cannot eat with them anyways.

With dental implant-supported dentures or bridges, eating a nutrient-rich diet can be possible again, improving your overall health. The denture can be easily removed for cleaning by yourself at night, and/or at your regular dental check-ups.

Bone Grafting

In order to place a successful dental implant, there needs to be sufficient bone in the area. We can place a bone graft into the socket immediately following a tooth extraction, or even in an area that has been missing a tooth for some time. This allows proper anchoring and support for the dental implant and replacement of bone.

 

SINUS LIFT

A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose.

Sinus lift surgeries are performed by the IMPLANT TEAM

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:

  • Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw (particularly the molars teeth) do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.

  • Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.

  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus varies among individuals. In addition, the sinus can get larger as you age.

  • Bone may have been lost because of periodontal (gum) disease.

DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Placing a dental implant has various stages. They are listed below:

Placing the Implant

  • Thanks to modern dentistry techniques, it’s possible to make the implant placement procedure comfortable and pain-free. Concerned patients can also ask the dentist for sedation to feel relaxed while a dental implant is placed.

  • The procedure starts with the jawbone preparation, and the surgeon then makes a cut to expose the bone for drilling holes. The holes are kept deep enough for the implant to be placed properly and placed deep into the bone, like the root.

  • The doctor may require bone grafting in cases where the bone is weak or lacks the strength to support implant surgery. The surgeon then waits for the jawbone to heal and after that, places the metal post in it.

  • The entire process, from start to finish, may take many months and most of the time is spent on healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in the jaw.

  • After this, a temporary crown is given to the patient which is placed to fill the gap, and also to achieve the aesthetic goal. This crown can be taken off for an implant procedure, one has to wait until the bone is healed properly

 

Healing

  • During this process, the jawbone will grow and unite with the surface of the dental implant. This process is also referred to as osseointegration as it helps to offer a durable base for the new artificial tooth, much like roots do for the natural teeth.

  • In general, this process takes between 3 to 6 months depending on the bone health & structure. However, the whole procedure can be completed in one day itself when patients have good bone structure.

  • After that, you can schedule the second surgery but only once the implants are fused with the bone. Your dentists will take an x-ray to confirm whether the implant is fit for the second surgery.

  • The second surgery will be simpler than the first where a new incision is made to expose the heads of the implants.

 

Abutment placement

  • You may need another surgery to place the abutment (the piece where the crown will attach) but only after healing is complete. This procedure is relatively simple typically done with anesthesia in an outpatient setting.

  • During the procedure, the dentist will re-open the wound to attach the abutment to the Dental Implant. A temporary crown will be given for 4 to 6 weeks to let the gums around the abutment heal. Such a crown is softer which can cushion the implant and may stress the soft tissues that can help in healing.

  • For precautionary purposes, you may need to eat only soft foods after each stage of surgery to let the surgical site heal properly.

 

Placement of permanent Crown

  • In the next stage, the dentist will focus on making the permanent crown look exactly like your natural teeth. All the elements like the surface texture, color, and anatomy will be tuned up to blend with the surrounding dentition.

  • If you are not happy with the crown for any reason, consult your dentist so that it can be sent back to the dental technician for necessary changes.

  • Impressions of your mouth and remaining teeth are taken to make the crown so that a realistic-looking artificial tooth can be made. The crown, however, will not be placed until the jawbone is strong enough to support the new tooth.

  • It takes less than 2 to 3 weeks to make a permanent crown which will then be cemented or screwed to the Implant.

  • After permanent crown placement, your doctor will explain post-implant care instructions.

POST IMPLANTS CARE

 

Good oral hygiene is important not just for your teeth and gums but also for your overall well-being.
