A long-lasting screw is embedded directly into your jaw and bonds with the bone. Implants can replace a single tooth or all.

Once your implant is integrated (which can take a few months), it will look and feel exactly like your natural tooth -making chewing and smiling anxiety-free.

They stay in place and don’t require removal for cleaning or eating just the same brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups as natural teeth. And with proper care, your new dental implant can last a lifetime, making it a very worthy investment.

Accurate Assessment: Dentists can accurately assess bone volume, density, and morphology using CT scans, ensuring that implants are placed in areas with adequate bone support for optimal stability and long-term success.

Customised Treatment Planning: With CT scans, dentists can create customised treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs and anatomical characteristics. They can select the ideal implant size, type, and placement location to achieve optimal functional and aesthetic outcomes.

Predictable Outcomes: By providing comprehensive 3D visualisation of the implant site, CT scans help predict and anticipate potential challenges or complications before surgery. This allows for proactive measures to be taken, leading to more predictable treatment outcomes.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums.

They provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth, which can be either individual crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Dental implants look and function like natural teeth and are a popular option for replacing missing teeth due to their durability, stability, and ability to preserve jawbone structure.

What are the benefits of dental implants compared to other tooth replacement options?

Natural Look and Feel: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Durability and Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, unlike traditional bridges or dentures which may need replacement over time.

Improved Speech and Eating: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing for comfortable chewing and speaking without the worry of slippage or discomfort often associated with removable dentures.

Preservation of Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure and integrity. This helps maintain a youthful facial appearance and prevents the “sunken-in” look that can occur with missing teeth.

Enhanced Oral Health: Unlike dental bridges, which require adjacent teeth to be shaved down for support, dental implants do not affect neighboring teeth, preserving their natural structure. This contributes to better long-term oral health.

Convenience and Comfort: Dental implants are securely anchored in the jawbone, eliminating the need for messy adhesives or adjustments associated with dentures. This offers greater comfort and convenience in daily activities.

Improved Self-Confidence: Dental implants restore confidence in one’s smile and overall appearance, as they provide a stable and natural-looking solution for missing teeth.

How long do dental implants last?

The longevity of dental implants can vary depending on various factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene practices, overall health, lifestyle habits, and the quality of the implant procedure. However, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime.

Clinical studies have shown that dental implants have success rates exceeding 95% after 10 years, and many implants can last for 20 years or more. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices (such as brushing, flossing, and using antimicrobial mouthwash), and avoiding habits like smoking can help prolong the lifespan of dental implants.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?

The dental implant procedure is typically performed under conscious  IV sedation or the numbing of the tooth area to ensure that patients do not feel pain during the surgery.

While discomfort and minor swelling may occur after the surgery, most patients report only mild to moderate discomfort, which can be managed effectively with over-the-counter pain medications prescribed by the dentist. Any post-operative discomfort usually subsides within a few days to a week.

What factors can affect the success of dental implants?

Several factors can influence the success of dental implants, including:

Bone Quality and Quantity: Sufficient bone density and volume are essential for successful implant placement and osseointegration (fusion of the implant with the jawbone). Patients with inadequate bone may require bone grafting procedures to augment the bone structure before implant placement.

Overall Health: Certain systemic conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and compromised immune function can affect the body’s ability to heal and may increase the risk of implant failure. Good overall health and proper management of systemic conditions are crucial for implant success.

Oral Health: Proper oral hygiene and gum health are vital for implant success. Poor oral hygiene can lead to peri-implantitis, a condition similar to gum disease, which can cause inflammation and bone loss around the implant, compromising its stability and longevity.

Smoking: Smoking is associated with decreased blood flow and impaired healing, which can significantly affect the success rate of dental implants. Smokers have a higher risk of implant failure and complications compared to non-smokers.

Implant Design and Material: High-quality implants made from biocompatible materials such as titanium or ceramic have better success rates. The design and surface characteristics of the implant also influence osseointegration and long-term stability.

Patient Factors: Individual factors such as age, genetics, lifestyle habits, and adherence to post-operative care instructions can affect implant success. Patients must follow their dentist’s recommendations for proper oral hygiene, dietary restrictions, and regular dental check-ups to ensure the long-term success of their implants.

How long does it take to complete the dental implant process?

The dental implant process typically takes about three to six months to complete. This includes the initial consultation and evaluation, implant placement surgery (one to two hours per implant), osseointegration period (three to six months), abutment placement, and final restoration.

Can I still get dental implants if I have gum disease?

In some cases, individuals with mild to moderate gum disease may still be eligible for dental implants after treatment.

However, severe gum disease can compromise implant success. Evaluation by a dentist is necessary to determine eligibility.

Can dental implants replace multiple missing teeth?

Yes, definitely. Dental implants can replace single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth with implant-supported bridges or partial dentures, and even full arches of missing teeth with implant-supported dentures.

Can I use my old denture with new implants?

Yes, it is possible to use existing dentures with new dental implants by retrofitting them with special attachments or clasps to securely attach to the implants.

How do I look after for dental implants after the procedure?

After getting dental implants, it’s crucial to follow proper post-operative care instructions provided by your dentist to ensure successful healing and long-term implant success. Here are some essential tips for caring for dental implants after the procedure:

Practice Good Oral
Hygiene: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque and bacteria around the implants. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid damaging the implant and surrounding gum tissue.

Use Antimicrobial Mouthwash: Rinse your mouth with an antimicrobial mouthwash to help reduce the risk of infection and promote healing. Choose a mouthwash recommended by your dentist and use it as directed.

Avoid Tobacco Products: Smoking and using other tobacco products can impair healing and increase the risk of implant failure. If you smoke, consider quitting or reducing your tobacco use to improve the success rate of your implants.

Attend Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings with your dentist to monitor the health of your implants and surrounding oral tissues. Your dentist will assess the stability of the implants and address any concerns or issues promptly.

Follow Dietary Restrictions: Avoid hard, sticky, or crunchy foods that can exert excessive pressure on the implants and compromise healing. Stick to a soft diet during the initial healing period and gradually reintroduce harder foods as advised by your dentist.

Protect the Implants: Avoid habits that can damage the implants, such as chewing on hard objects like ice or using your teeth as tools. Wear a mouthguard if you participate in contact sports or activities that pose a risk of oral injury.

Are dental implants suitable for older adults?

Yes, dental implants are suitable for older adults, provided they are in good overall health and have adequate bone density to support the implants. Age alone is not a determining factor for implant candidacy. Many older adults benefit from dental implants as a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function and aesthetics.

However, certain medical conditions and medications may need to be considered, so it’s essential for older adults to undergo a thorough evaluation by a dentist or oral surgeon to determine their suitability for dental implant treatment.

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can provide older adults with improved chewing ability, speech, and confidence in their smiles.

Can I still get dental implants if I have a little bone amount?

Yes, it is possible to get dental implants even with a limited amount of bone.

However, additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus augmentation may be necessary to augment the bone volume and density in the implant site.

These procedures help create a suitable foundation for the implants to ensure stability and long-term success.

A comprehensive evaluation by a dentist or oral surgeon will determine the feasibility of dental implant treatment and the need for any additional bone augmentation procedures based on individual circumstances.
