Dental Implants

Dental implant is a device made up of titanium that is fixed into the jaw bone which then acts like the tooth root and supports a restoration or an artificial tooth. It is used inorder to replace a missing tooth.

The bone of the jaw accepts and gets fused to the titanium implant by a process known as “osseointegration”. An implant is always felt a little different when you chew on some food, that is because it lacks the periodontal ligament (a supporting tissue that connects the tooth and the bone). The periodontal ligament is present only around a natural tooth.

Dental implants are used for many purposes like implant supported dentures, orthodontic tooth movement, bridges and crowns.

A success of a dental implant mainly depends on the case selection. An implant is not adviceable for patients with high blood sugar, heavy smokers, thin bone ridge, bruxism habbits, osteoporosis, patients who have undergone radiation therapy of the jaw and HIV positive patients.

Implant Techniques:

An implant can be done either in a 2stage technique or a single stage technique.

Two Stage Technique:

In a 2stage technique an implant is screwed into the bone so that the upper part of the implant is at the bone level and the gums are sutured over it. When the patient comes in the next appointment the dentist will connect a dental abutment and again the patient have to wait for a short period for the gums to heal then the final stage is done.

Single Stage Dental Implants:

In this technique the implant is placed into the jaw bone by expoising the top of the implant. The implant is clinically visible and hence the second surgical stage is not required.

Cost of the Dental Implant:

The cost of a dental implant varies based on the brand of the implant. Various companies are available like ADIN, NOBEL BIOCARE , ZIMMER , LIFE CARE , BIOHORIZONS etc.

In this technique the implant is placed into the jaw bone by expoising the top of the implant. The implant is clinically visible and hence the second surgical stage is not required.
