Dental implants replace damaged or missing teeth with natural-looking crowns that are attached to metal, screw-like posts. They preserve natural bone and help to stimulate bone growth. Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence. Dental implants are changing the way people live.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone. Dental implants can be done for patients with missing teeth poor nutrition and oral care, tooth decay, excessive wear and tear, gum diseases, birth defects. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. They are the ideal option for replacing missing teeth as they last a lifetime. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Ruchi Goel performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

FAQs

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implant surgery is one of the safest procedures in dentistry and it is the only restoration method that stimulates natural bone beneath the missing tooth. Like any minor oral surgical procedure, there is a slight risk of infection, inflammation, and pain which can be managed for your specific situation.

How long does it take?

The time necessary to place the dental implants varies based on the technique your dentist chooses to use and the location of the tooth, but generally, the procedure takes about one hour per implant. The dental implant procedure usually takes 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 months for the upper jaw for the implant to fully integrate with your bone.

Are dental implants painful?

The procedure isn’t painful as such because most patients can be fully sedated, partially sedated, or numbed with an anesthetic. Little to no discomfort is the goal. After dental implantation, once the numbness wears off, mild pain may be noticed by the patient. Implants can also be placed with the assistance of dental lasers. Lasers offer leading-edge techniques for successful implant placement and patient comfort.

How long do the implants last?

If your implants are well looked after, and if the bone they are fitted to is strong and healthy, you can expect them to last for many years. You should visit your dentist for periodic checkups to ensure the implant functions well and stays clean and healthy. If you don't look after your implants they will develop a coating similar to what you get on neglected natural teeth.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

The success rate varies from individual to individual and with health and habits. For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates above 90-95 percent.
