Dental Implant – Your second Permanent Tooth

Dental implants are titanium ‘roots’ which, when placed in the upper or lower jaw, bond with the bone, thus acting as anchors for the replacement teeth (implant crowns and bridges).

Dental implants look, feel and function like your natural teeth and have the highest success rate for any method of tooth replacement (over 95%). They prevent bone loss and shrinkage of the jawbone which can make the face look older.

Dental Implants are the convenient and acceptable treatment option to replace missing teeth. The loss or damage of even a single tooth can have a considerable impact on a person’s everyday life and self-esteem, even changing one’s personality entirely.

People with dental problems avoid smiling and socializing, causing them to be even more unhappy. This inadvertantly leads to a myraid of aesthetic and psychological issues. Regardless of the aesthetic and psychological reasons, missing teeth should be replaced because a missing tooth can set off a domino of effects on the entire dentition. Each and every gap in your tooth placement potentially poses problems to your long term dental health if not addressed.

One missing tooth can ultimately lead to the loss of additional teeth and change in your facial profile over time. The missing tooth can lead to a chain reaction in which adjacent teeth can collapse into the gap, while teeth in the opposing jaw can grow into the gap.

From a nutrition stand point, missing teeth can affect nutrition and well-being. The types of food that can be consumed are often limited, hence resulting in deficiencies in vitamins and nutrients and often loss of body weight.

Missing teeth also causes the bones to gradually break down as the bone resorbs and gives patients the look of a “sunken face”. Missing teeth must thus be replaced as soon as possible. If they are not replaced soon, then the bone around it will be resorbed (kind of like, melts away).

When the patient finally gets to getting an implant done, there may not be enough bone left, resulting in the need for complex procedures like bone grafting. Unlike conventional dentures, dental implants are permanent anchors and eliminate problems of poor fit, gum irritation, pressure points and food trapping under dentures. This makes them much better to chew food with and also does not trap food, leading to food stagnation and ultimately a foul putrefying smell.

Time Line

The first step of the dental implant procedure is a comprehensive initial consultation where your teeth, gums and jaw are examined.

A Dental X ray – OPG or 3D CT scan is required at this stage to determine the bone volume available and the number of implants to be inserted as well as the placement position of the dental implant fixtures..

A detailed treatment plan is then provided to you detailing the duration of treatment, costs and number of appointments required to complete the procedure successfully.

On the day of your implant surgery, we will uncover the gum to insert the implant under the jaw bone This can be done under local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation if preferred. This procedure will take approximately 10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of implants to be placed. Once in place, the implant is left to heal in the bone for 3-6 months.

An immediate temporary crown can be fabricated for the front teeth in most situations. 3-6 months later, components will be screwed onto your implants and a model of your teeth and jaw taken for custom crowns and brides to be made.

The laboratory will complete the final crown or bride in about 2 weeks. This will be secured onto the implant component to complete your implant treatment.

You will not have a new tooth that can function like a natural tooth – natural, comfortable, durable.
