Dental Implants In Dwarka A dental implant is a titanium screw placed in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Dental implants procedure offers support to the prosthesis such as a crown or bridge that are made to match your natural teeth.
Dental Implant surgery is done under general or local anesthesia depending upon the patient condition. Attached to the implant is the abutment, which holds the tooth in place and keeps it from shifting. Integration of the implant and healing takes about 12 to 18 weeks. Thereafter the bridge or crown (the actual tooth) is attached. The ceramic tooth provides a natural look and fastens to the abutment exactly like a real tooth, which is one of the important aspects of dental implants.
Dental Implants look and feel like your own teeth and are designed to fuse with bone and become permanent. They are superior as compared to dentures because of their enhanced fitting and exceptional chewing and grinding properties.
A 50-year-old male visited our dental implant clinic with several decayed and mobile teeth in both arches. He had no systemic illness. Patient was reluctant to wear removable dentures and wanted fixed teeth.
The surgical and the implant procedures were discussed in detail and he gave his consent for an implant-supported fixed prosthesis. After a detailed clinical evaluation, it was decided that 15 implants and crowns will be placed on the mouth. The implants were submerged below the crestal bone level. A two-stage technique was used and cover screws were placed. Suturing was carried out. After 6 months the patient was called again for fixing the crowns.
The patient now lives a pain free life and is happy about having his teeth back. The implants look, feel and function exactly like his natural teeth.
Total teeth loss is a common phenomenon in patients with poor bone integrity. The reasons leading to this can be various, old age being the most common. One such patient came to us for help who had lost majority of his teeth. After through examination and discussions with experts we suggested the use of implant supported dentures. The two main reasons were
1. In this case there was no scope for conventional dentures as the preliminary support system of adjacent teeth was not available.
2. Individual implants in place of the missing teeth were not cost-effective for the patient.
For implant supported dentures we follow the same surgical process as individual implants, but instead of a single crown, an entire denture is placed on the implant. This was done to make the prosthesis more stable, easily detachable (the patient himself could do it), and provide good support. Implant supported denture is the best solution for anyone who is suffering from total teeth loss.
This patient visited us with an acute toothache and our diagnosis revealed that two of his molars in the upper left region were severely infected. Tooth infection generally occurs due to cavity and tooth decay. To save this patient’s adjoining teeth, the underlying jaw bone, and the surrounding gum, we had to remove both the molars.
However, owing to the absence of molars, the patient was naturally having a problem in chewing as these types of teeth help us to grind our food just before swallowing. 5 months later, from the date of the removal, we placed two Mirell implants (a brand we recommend) in place of the missing teeth. The patient will now take 5-6 months more to heal post osteointegration after which we will place the crown on them. He soon will have his molar functions resumed and his oral structure will be back to normal.
Surgical guide allows the dentist to develop a restoratively driven surgical plan with the ultimate goal of patient centered positive outcome.
This reduces surgical time allows for more precise implant, prevention of anatomical structure, less invasive flapless surgery and also improves accuracy in aligning implant.
Patient benefit from this approach by reducing the number of resilient components during follow -up visits.
Dental implants can last an entire lifetime. Several studies specify the long-term survival of dental implants — up to a 20-year span. Most dental implants can withstand up to a decade or more of stress. Crowns often last between 10 and 15 years before replacement.
The process of performing a tooth implant is very technique sensitive and should be done by highly qualified and experienced dental implant specialists. Our dental implant surgeons follow a strategic path to develop a restoratively driven surgical plan with the ultimate goal of positive outcome. This reduces surgery time, allows for more precise implant, prevents of complexities, allows less invasive flapless surgery and improves accuracy in aligning implant.
Dental Implants cost vary depending on many factors like quality, brand, sittings, conditions, surgical requirements, equipment used and others. Mini dental implants or single tooth implants are easy and cost less as compared to full mouth restoration. We offer you the best types of dental implants at an affordable cost. We use imported dental implant with several make/brand options.
