Frequently Asked Questions
About Dental Implants
Dentistry has successfully used dental implants for more than 30 years and is recognised as generally safe. A healthy patient is unlikely to suffer significant complications after receiving dental implants.
However, dental implants are only recommended for people who are in good dental health. If you suffer from severe periodontal disease (gum disease), for instance, you will not be eligible for the dental procedure until you have been able to receive proper treatment to slow the progression of the disease.
Dental implant surgery poses some health risks, like any other surgical procedure. Nevertheless, problems are rare, and when they happen, they’re usually minor and quickly handled by dental professionals. Among the risks are the following:
- An infection at the implant site.
- Damage to nearby structures, such as blood vessels or other teeth.
- If you have nerve damage, you will experience pain, numbness, or tingling in your teeth, gums, lips, or chin.
- Sinus problems if dental implants are improperly placed in the upper jaw.
- Failed integration of the implant and the jawbone due to insufficient bone structure.
- Implant rejection is characterised by swelling, fever, and chills.
- An allergy to titanium may cause a reaction to the alloy used in dental implants. In addition to swelling and tingling, allergies can cause taste loss.
By properly preparing the site before the procedure and placing the teeth implants in the proper place, the dentist in our dental clinic can minimise the risks involved with this procedure.
It is necessary for patients to reach skeletal maturity before undergoing dental implant surgery. A mature jawbone means no more growth spurts. If tooth implants are inserted before the jawbone has fully matured, durability and stability may be compromised, as the growth of the bone may be stunted. Additionally, other complications may occur.
While each teen’s jaw grows at a different pace, the period of growth usually lasts until 18 or 19 years of age. Generally, skeletal maturity is reached by the mid-20s. Adolescents younger than 18 are not suitable candidates for dental implants unless they are skeletally mature.
Dental X-rays can help determine if their growth has not improved by identifying whether bone growth plates have closed. Other assessments may also be utilised to determine if the adolescent patient is a candidate for oral surgery.
Dental implants are a good treatment option. Given the benefits of this procedure, the amount of money it costs seems well worth it. Let’s examine each factor individually to determine what contributes to its cost.
The use of materials.
In this procedure, expensive materials are used for each component: the crown, the abutment, and the screw. The abutment and the crown are custom-made for the patient, which is a substantial investment. Tooth implant posts are made of special biocompatible materials. Also, the abutment measurements must be precise so the crown securely fits in the mouth. On the other hand, some patients may need bone grafting before implants, which will add to the total cost.
Duration of time and number of visits.
In some cases, the treatment can take months or even years to complete. A crown or dental bridge requires only a few sittings, while implant placement can require 3 to 5 appointments, sometimes even more, depending on the patient’s oral health. Since dental implants are complex, they require regular check-ups. You can expect to attend regular appointments during the treatment.
Maintenance and management of complications.
The tooth implant result is meant to mimic one’s lost natural teeth. Consequently, before a structure is fixed into the jaws, many factors must be taken into account. Careful attention patient’s present condition is necessary to make sure the tooth size is correct and can be adjusted easily in the mouth. In addition to the possibility of complications, there are also steps that must be carefully planned. Otherwise, the patient would have to wait until the problems subside at the end of treatment. Implants require a lot of attention and maintenance throughout the process, which increases their price.
The technique is complicated and may require additional training and experience at work. Only qualified dentists are allowed to execute implants. As a result, the dentist’s experience and skills increase the cost of the treatment.
The safety and comfort of our patients are of important to us. For the procedure to be successful, you must undergo an in-depth planning process. Traditional implant and installation methods take time and patience to complete. You will have to wait over a month, but the results are well worth it! These are the steps we go through during the treatment:
- Assessment of the Mouth.
An experienced dentist evaluates your medical and dental health before implant surgery is performed. Patients with gum disease, chronic dry mouth, or smokers may not be able to receive implants immediately or at all. In addition, if you want to get a dental implant, your dentist will also consider your bone density.
- Preparation of the jaw.
Several treatments may be required before you can receive dental implants. It may take some time to complete your surgery if you need bone transplants, sinus lifts, or tooth extractions.
- Placement of the implant.
Proper implant placement is the key to creating new stable teeth. The implanted post will fuse onto the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Typically, it takes a few months for your mouth to heal before you can proceed to the next step.
- Setting up the abutment.
After the implant site has healed and the post is stable, the abutment must be attached. The abutment will be affixed to the implant once osseointegration has occurred.
- Attachment of a permanent crown.
This final step completes the dental implant treatment process. The crown will be attached tightly to the abutment to ensure a natural and secure fit. Your new tooth will be the same colour as your other teeth so that it will blend in seamlessly.
