What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are screw-like devices made of titanium that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act like roots after fusing into the patient's jawbone. They replace natural teeth after the ceramic crown is affixed to their top. Titanium is a biocompatible material that binds with a human bone structure in Osseointegration or bone adherence.
A dental implant has an anchor-like function and comprises three parts:
Implant: An implant made of titanium or zirconia surgically fixed into the jawbone to serve as the tooth's root.
Abutment: It is fastened to the implant to hold the crown, bridge, or denture.
Crown: This is the visible part of the dental implant mounted atop the abutment that delivers the natural look and function to the implanted tooth.
Dental Implants Procedure
Our primary goal is to make you comfortable before starting the treatment plan. We discuss your concerns and customize a treatment plan for your dental history. The process would look like this:
Our team will personalize a treatment plan according to your needs and condition.
The oral surgeon will insert the dental implant into the jawbone and leave it to heal. Usually, it takes 12 weeks, and the patient may have to visit the clinic for X-rays at regular intervals.
Once the implant heals entirely, an abutment will be placed to hold the new tooth securely. The dentist will take impressions of your teeth and model your bite based on which the new tooth will be created.
A replacement tooth will be attached to the abutment to help you lead your life normally. Sometimes, it may take several appointments to ensure a proper fitting. But once the tooth is placed properly, it will look and function like your natural teeth.

How Painful Are Dental Implants?
Most people do not experience much discomfort during the procedure because of local anesthesia used during the process. After the dental implant, over-the-counter pain medications can treat mild soreness.
How Do I Care for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are like natural teeth and thus need brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups.
Do Dental Implants Cost More Than Other Alternatives for Teeth Replacement?
Yes, implants can cost more than other teeth replacement treatments, and dental plans might not cover them. But the comfort and longevity achieved are worth the price you pay.
What Are the Possible Complications or Risks Associated with Dental Implants?
Despite a success rate of 98%, rare complications like inflammation, bleeding, and infection have been experienced with dental implants. Sometimes, the implant may fail when it doesn't fuse to the jawbone completely.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants have a commendable success rate of up to 98%, and with proper oral hygiene and care, they can last 30- 40 years or a lifetime.
