  • What Is A Dental Implant Surgery?

    Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like the real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to ill-fitting dentures or bridgework.

    How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. But all dental implant surgeries occur in stages and involve several procedures. The major benefit from implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant because this healing requires time.

  • When Can One Opt For A Dental Implant?

    • Those individuals who have lost their back teeth making it impossible to construct a conventional dental bridge.
    • Those who cannot tolerate a denture in their mouth.
    • Age in itself is not a factor in the choice of treatment, as general health and attitude are much more important in the decision to use dental implants.
    • There must be enough space to accommodate the prosthesis over the implants.
    • Your jaw must have enough bones to support the implant (if not bone grafting may be required).
  • Is The Implant Procedure Safe & Painless?

    The implant placement usually takes 45-60 minutes depending on the location and number of implants. It is usually done under local anesthesia and is not painful. Post placement your dentist may prescribe medication to alleviate any pain you may have.

    Whereas no medical treatment can be guaranteed 100% without risks and failures, implant operation is considered to be very safe. The prosthetic phase of treatment is basically non-invasive and non-surgical in nature.

  • What Are The Risks Involved In A Dental Implant Surgery?

    Like any surgery, dental implant surgery poses some health risks. Problems are rare, though, and when they do occur they're usually minor and can be easily treated. Risks include:

    • Infection at the implant site
    • Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels
    • Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your natural teeth, gums, lips or chin
    • Sinus problems, when dental implants placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of your sinus cavities
  • How Do We Make Our Teeth Last Longer?

    • Practice Exceptional Oral Hygiene: Just as with your natural teeth, implants, artificial teeth and gum tissue must be kept clean. Specially designed brushes, such as an inter-dental brush that slides between teeth, can help clean the nooks and crannies around teeth, gums and metal abutments.
    • See Your Dentist Regularly: Schedule dental checkups every six months to one year to ensure the health and proper functioning of your implants.
    • Avoid Damaging Habits: Don't chew hard items, such as ice and hard candy, which can break your crowns or your natural teeth. Avoid tooth-staining tobacco and caffeine products. Get treatment if you grind your teeth.
