Dental Implant Treatment

What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a surgical process in which a titanium post which is like a tooth root is positioned in the jawbone beneath the gum line. A dental implant is designed to match natural teeth & used as a robust base for permanent fixed teeth & dentures on implants. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. A Dental Implant is a firm fixture because the surgical process allows a dentist to mount replacement teeth or bridge into the jawbone.

Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges. It doesn’t let you compromise your oral health.

  2. One can replace single, multiple, or all teeth without cutting down your adjacent teeth. (Can have dentures attached to your implants too)
  3. It minimizes bone loss.

Dental implants side-effects or Tooth implants risks are rare & few if any. In some cases, there may be following common possible short-term side effects

  1. Infection,
  2. Post-operative swelling,
  3. More bleeding,
  4. Pus formation
  5. Pain

In very rare cases, there is a risk of Nerve Injury in the bottom jaw. It can cause prolonged numbness.

Another rare risk is implant loss. It can happen two for two reasons;
one is lost due to infection around the implant,
second is Crown/Cap, or Attachment/Abutment is loose due to substandard connections.

We understand that even the risk possibility is rare, we take all the precautions seriously. We take care of following precautions for all the patients

  1. Good pre-evaluation & history
  2. Pre-planning Tests
  3. CBCT scans
  4. Blood tests
  5. Blood sugar & Vit D levels
  6. Using Quality Equipment
  7. Strict sterilization protocols – Class B Autoclave Sterilization before, during & after surgery

We are continuously training ourselves and keep upgrading the skills for better surgical expertise and avoiding any risks.

It completely depends on case to case. Following are the common issues

– Difficulty in chewing

– Digestive problems due to the inability to chew food properly

– Other teeth move away from their original position because of the extra space available due to the missing teeth, which may cause more food lodgement & eventually tooth decay.

People think their teeth are weak – always having dental cavities. They need to understand such teeth problems/ issues also are contributing factors.

A dental check-up is what can determine their main causative factor in turn, helping to solve their dental problems.

  • Bone loss, eventually leading to loss of healthy teeth even
  • Unbalanced bite leading to excessive pressure on other teeth, causing tooth injury or tooth fracture or their premature loss.
  • Loss of natural facial appearance
  • Increased facial wrinkles
  • Loss of youthful appearance
  • Loss of support to facial structures
  • Many more

A simple choice of tooth implant here can help replace & solve most the teeth problems & more. Your bone loss can only be prevented with the help of a dental implant, not a bridge.

There is nothing to be worried about. It is placed in the same place in the bone where the natural root of the tooth was. The patient is easily comfortable for his/her daily routine with basic medications—no need to take any leaves from work.

Also at SmilePRO, we have some patients who have gone to the office after an hour of their implant surgery appointment. It is at times simpler than removing a broken tooth.

Yes, it is finished in anywhere between 10mins to an hour [Teeth-in-an-hour] depending on the number of implants to be placed.The patient is given local anaesthesia- like during a root canal/tooth removal. It is at times simpler than removal of teeth, as implants are generally pre-planned with X-rays & CBCT scans, so procedures are precise.

With experienced dental surgeons, it is very quick, efficient & painless.

The dental implant is the main part. Once the implant is placed, it is followed by different attachments to shape your gums & finally to place your new ceramic teeth/ caps/ dental crowns.

At SmilePRO, we follow every step diligently to ensure long-lasting results for our patients & closest to natural results.

Yes, in most of our cases at SmilePRO we give teeth on the same day[long term temporaries] provided your bone & implant meet the primary stability criteria.

Dental implants are like a lifetime treatment option for you. It is not costly but it depends case to case. Please contact us to know more.

Dental implants can still be possible for you. At times, because a long period has passed after removal of the tooth, bone quantity reduces. Experienced dental surgeons can help with bone grafting solutions followed by the placement of dental implants. Artificial bone is placed which slowly gets converted to your natural bone.

At SmilePRO, we regularly undertake grafting procedures & provide predictable long-term solutions to our patients.

We could also opt for alternate options like –

  • All-on-4
  • Zygoma implants
  • Pterygoid implants

Good dental implants are like a lifetime treatment option. Who wouldn’t want a treatment to possibly last a lifetime? Also, another big benefit is – we save both adjacent natural teeth from getting caps too like it otherwise happens in a dental bridge. Dental Implants can take higher chewing loads. They do not decay. It’s generally observed patients adapt faster to implants

Why not. Most people have multiple missing teeth at this age. Hence they are the same age group who mostly seek replacement of their teeth. Dental implants can replace single, multiple or all teeth depending on a case.
