Dental Implants

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is quite technique sensitive and should be done by only highly qualified and experienced dental implant specialists from AIIMS (New Delhi) and PGIMER (Chandigarh).

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. In function and aesthetics, they are very similar to natural teeth. The benefits of dental implants are:

  • They long-last if maintained: Dental implants are built to last for a long time if they are maintained. Other options like dental bridges and dentures need to be replaced in 5 or 10 years.
  • They are made to match your natural teeth: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. They also help you retain your natural face shape and smile.
  • Easier eating: If a missing tooth is not replaced, the teeth around it can move. This can affect your bite and place more stress on your teeth and jaw joints. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth making it easier to eat your favorite food.
  • Improved speech: Dental implants will be secure, so they won’t slip or click when you talk and will allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

You can count on us to give you the smile you deserve, the ability to eat what you want, and teeth that feel and act like your natural ones.

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.
