What is a Dental Implant?
Dental Implant is an artificial replacement for the tooth root and replaces missing teeth in the mouth.
Imagine that a tooth has been missing and a tooth has been taken out of the gum. An implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium. It replaces a tooth root and it is surgically inserted into the patient’s jaw bone. After the placement of the implant in the jawbone, it is left there for three months for it to integrate with the bone cells – making it into solid fixture.
After the three months period, a post is placed into the implant, which is physically screwed into the implant. Then an artificial crown, normally made
of porcelain, is cemented or screwed on top of that.
Is there any pain?
Upon asking patients how their treatment went? Whether they felt any pain or discomfort during or after the procedure?
The feedback that we have received is that it’s very similar to having a tooth taken out.
What is the Success Rate?
Research suggests that a properly placed dental implant has a 95% success rate. Successful means that an implant has integrated with the bone for over a 5 year period.
In any surgery, whether it be in the mouth or outside of the mouth, there are two main types of complications. One is related with trauma to the blood vessels or nerves or any other vital structure. And secondly, infection.
We take a lot of diagnostic precautions to ensure that we avoid nerves and blood vessels. We also follow a stringent after-care regime for the prevention of infection, which usually happens due to poor oral hygiene – where bacteria proliferates and causes a wound in your mouth to be delayed in the healing process.
