A dental implant is a replacement or substitute of the “roots” of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns (the parts of teeth seen in the mouth), bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and bio-compatible.
Implants is an ideal treatment for people who have damaged or missing tooth/teeth due to gum disease, an injury, or some other reason and seeking for a fixed replacement.
It is also a very good option for patients who have lost all teeth in the mouth and who wish to have fixed teeth replacement rather than wear a removable denture.
Procedure of a Dental Implant
Dental implant procedure is done under local anesthesia.Our dentists drill a hole in the bone according to the size of the implant screw to be placed in the bone.This is followed by fabricating an abutment and cap.
There are basic two types of implants -Immediate loading and delayed loading implants.
In case of an immediate loading implant the crown or the prosthesis is made immediately within 2-3 weeks after placing the implant.
Where as in case of a delayed loading implant only the screw is placed during the first visit.The screw is allowed to rest in the bone for 3 months remains in the bone for around 3 months.During these 3 months the bone becomes more healthy and strong. After 3 months an x-ray or a CBCT is taken to check the bone health.If the bone has become strong enough a crown or prosthesis is fabricated.These are always the preferred choice of implants as we allow the body to accept the screw and we allow the bone to become strong before it is subjected to the chewing forces.

How does one benefit through a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is the best option for replacing a lost tooth.This is the only treatment in which a dentist replaces even the ROOT.When a tooth is lost the bone holding the root starts becoming weak as it looses its function. The bone in that section not only becomes weak but also looses its height ,width, strength and thickness.This further reduces the bone support of adjacent teeth.
Placing an implant is the only way of restoring the bone function and thus health.
What are the necessary precautions one must take after a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is made of titanium so it can not get a cavity like a tooth.However as implant is placed in the bone thus maintaining oral hygiene is necessary for its longitivity.
One must brush twice a day ,use a mouth wash,floss and visit our dentist every 6 month for a regular check up.
What is the duration of a Dental Implant?
For an immediate loading implant patients have to come about 4-5 times and the whole procedure is completed in 15 – 20 days.
In case of a delayed loading implant patient comes about 2 times for an implant placement during the first visit.This is followed by a gap of 3 months.The crown or the prosthetic part is fabricated after 3 months.This takes about 3-4 sittings and 15- 20 days.
For other cases like full mouth implants the treatment duration varies from 3-6 months and about 15-20 visits to our clinic.
Which Candidates are eligible for a Dental Implant?
Anyone with a missing tooth is eligible for an implant.
