Dental Implants

Compare 44 clinics

Dental implants, also known as endosseous implants are used in order to provide a stable platform and support for a dental prosthesis such as a denture, bridge or crown. Implants are usually used as a platform to support dental crowns. Dental implants are made out of titanium and zirconia with the latter being in use for a shorter period of time – titanium dental implants have been the norm due to the metal’s durability and biocompatibility. Advances in the field of implantology made dental implant problems a very rare occurrence – reliability of the implant itself and the fact that it’s a very safe procedure are just a few factors that make it such a popular choice for dentists as well as patients.

Dental Implants Candidates

Dental implant surgery is recommended for individuals with missing teeth or patients who need dentures.

Am I Suitable for Dental Implants?

A dental implant procedure is not recommended for individuals that suffer from jaw bone loss, diabetes, a suppressed immune system, individuals that had radiation therapy on the head or neck or individuals that had a heart attack recently. Pregnant women should avoid having dental implant surgery – it’s best to wait a bit.

Preparing for Dental Implants

It’s usually a good idea for the patient to have a set of dental x-rays before leaving for dental implants overseas.

How is Dental Implants Performed?

A dental implant process can be divided into two sections and two sessions with the dentist:

During the first session of a dental implant procedure, the dentist will create an incision into the gum, in the area where the implant will be placed. The gum tissue is then pushed back in order to expose the bone – this is where the actual implant will be placed. A small hole will be drilled and the dentist will proceed to screw the titanium or zirconia implant in. Once the implant is placed, the abutment can be put in place over the implant. A temporary dental crown is then placed over the abutment.

During the second session of the implant surgery, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent dental crown or bridge. Dental implant pain is practically non-existent as anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the procedure begins. The average dental implant recovery time is around 2 months – this is the time it takes for the bone to completely heal and tighten the implant in place.

A dental implant abutment can be made from either titanium or zirconia, depending on where the implant is placed.

Dental Implants Risks and Complications

Dental implant complications can include:

● Dental implant failure (the fracture implant abutment screw, implant or both)
● Infection of the area - easily treatable with antibiotics
● Blood vessels, tissue and teeth structures around the implant can be damaged
● The implant can push into a sinus cavity (upper jaw implants only)

It’s worthy to note that dental implant problems are few and far between. Implant fractures are at 0.14%. Crown fractures are at 4.5%.

Dental Implants Side Effects

Dental implant surgery side effects can include swelling, slight bleeding, discomfort and pain which can be soothed with painkillers.

Dental Implants Success Rates

Dental implants are one-time investment, as they usually last a lifetime. Dental implant patient reviews report a 96.8% success rate.

Before and After Dental Implants

Dental implants are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. When a ceramic crown is used, the material will reflect light in the same way as a real tooth would do. Patients can request dental implant pictures from clinics before visiting them for treatment.

Dental Implants FAQ

?
Will it hurt?

You won’t feel a thing – the surgeon will administer anaesthesia before beginning to plant the dental implant. Some patients may feel mild discomfort but that is comparable to a regular filling procedure.

?
What is the best dental implant abutment type?

This depends, dental implant abutments can be made out of titanium, gold, surgical stainless steel or zirconia, with the latter being a relatively newer material choice. While zirconia is more aesthetically pleasing, it is not as durable as titanium for example and a good dentist would recommend a titanium abutment for teeth subjected to high amounts of pressure – the molars for example.

?
Dental Implant vs Bridge – What is better?

If the patient has enough jaw bone tissue to support an implant, it’s definitely the better choice. If there is not enough tissue, the patient may opt for a dental implant bone graft or a dental bridge. Dental bridges will need to be replaced every 10-15 years but dental implants last a lifetime.
