Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to replace the roots of missing teeth and provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants have a high success rate and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Dental Implants provide a natural-looking and functioning replacement for a missing tooth and can also help prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Dental Implant Procedure

Ideal Candidate

An ideal candidate for a dental implant should have:

  • Have One or More Teeth Missing: Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing teeth.
  • Adequate Jawbone: The jawbone must be thick and strong enough to support the implant. If there is not enough bone, a bone graft may be needed.
  • No Smoking: Smoking can impede healing and increase the risk of complications.
  • Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Dental implant candidates should be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of the implant.

Before the Treatment

A Comprehensive Dental Examination: This may include dental x-rays and 3d images, and the creation of models of your teeth and jaw.

Your Medical History: It will be reviewed, including any medical conditions, medications, and supplements you are taking. If you have specific heart conditions or orthopedic implants, your dentist may recommend antibiotics prior to the surgery to prevent infection.

A Treatment Plan: It will be tailored to your specific case, taking into account factors such as the number of missing teeth, the condition of your jawbone, and the remaining teeth.

  • During Treatment

Step 1: Titanium Root Insertion – During the dental implant procedure, the dentist creates a hole in the jawbone and inserts a titanium root into the jawbone, which serves as the base for the artificial tooth. A temporary tooth is placed over the titanium root to fill the gap until the next appointment.

Step 2: Bone Growth – After the titanium root is implanted, the process of bone growth around it begins. This process takes time as the jawbone needs to fuse with the embedded root to form a strong foundation for the artificial crown, similar to the strength of natural tooth roots.

Step 3: Abutment Placement – After the healing process, there will be another session to place the abutment, which connects the crown to the implant. This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and is a straightforward process.

Materials Used

1. For the implant: Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that is well tolerated by the human body. Some implant systems use a different type of metal such as Zirconia, which is made of Zirconium oxide, a ceramic material.

2. For the Dental Crowns: Generally, dental crowns are made out of porcelain as they look and feel like natural teeth. They are also resistant to staining. They can be used for both front and back teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, dental crowns and dental implants are different.

A dental crown is a type of restoration that is used to cover and protect a damaged or decayed tooth. It is a cap-like structure that is placed over the natural tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns are typically made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two.

On the other hand, a dental implant is a small, artificial tooth root made of titanium or other biocompatible materials. They are surgically placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. Once in place, the implant fuses with the bone over time, creating a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

A dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or all of the teeth. Dental crowns are typically used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth, to replace a missing tooth, or to support a bridge. Dental implant treatment typically involves two phases; surgical placement of the implant and fabrication of the replacement tooth or bridge.

  • Avoid hard and crunchy foods: Avoid eating hard and crunchy foods, such as nuts, popcorn, and hard candy, for the first few weeks after surgery to allow the implant site to heal properly.
  • Brush and floss gently: Brush and floss gently around the implant site to avoid any damage.
  • Avoid smoking: Smoking can impede healing and increase the risk of complications, so it’s best to avoid smoking for at least the first few weeks after surgery.
  • Avoid alcohol: Alcohol can also impede healing, so it’s best to avoid consuming alcohol for the first few days after surgery.
  • Avoid strenuous activities: Avoid strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting or intense exercise, for the first few days after surgery to allow your body to rest and heal properly.

Dental insurance coverage for dental implants varies depending on the country and the specific insurance plan. In general, dental insurance plans in most countries do not cover the full cost of dental implants. In the United States, dental insurance plans typically classify dental implants as a form of cosmetic dentistry and do not cover the cost of the procedure. In Canada and the UK, dental insurance plans vary; some plans cover the cost of dental implants, while others do not.
