Dental Implants

Dental Implants


Dental Implants are replacements for tooth roots and missing or damaged tooth.

The procedure replaces damaged or missing tooth with metal (Titanium) screw-like posts and artificial ceramic teeth that look and work like any natural tooth, only much better.


  • Teeth made on dental implants look like natural teeth. They do not look artificial. Patients have reported a very high level of satisfaction with the appearance of teeth on dental implants.
  • They feel natural.
  • They help reduce bone loss.
  • Studies have shown that patients who have dental implants to replace one or more teeth report very high levels of satisfaction regarding comfort.
  • When a tooth is missing in the jaw, the bone which was surrounding the missing tooth starts to shrink because of lack of function.
  • Placement of dental implants helps reduce bone loss.
  • They are as efficient as natural teeth for chewing food.
  • The maintenance is easy same way as normal teeth.
  • A major advantage of implants over conventional bridges is that no adjacent teeth need to be reduced in order to place a dental implant.


Why can’t I just get bridge rather then dental implants?!!
  • Dental implants are bone supported where as dental bridge procedure requires support of adjacent teeth. Size of adjacent teeth are reduced. Dental bridges are tooth supported. How ever durability of dental implant is comparatively more then dental bridges.
Procedure !!! How it is performed ??How much time is needed !!!
  • After a detailed planning phase which involves diagnostics, impressions, x-ray and CT-scan,the surgical team digitally plans the placement of the future implant on the computer.
  • This enables us to provide the outcome of planned procedure in precised manner.
  • Procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, painless procedure similar to tooth removal and sequential drilling with titanium equipments.
  • In some cases immediate implant placement is done after tooth extraction.
  • Coming to crown placement immediate temporary crowns can also be given for anterior cases for aesthetic purposes.
  • Permanent crowns are placed only after 2-3 months of implant placement because implants take quit long time to fuse with bone and proper healing to take place.
Importance of replacing the missing teeth !!!
  • Missing teeth causes difficulty in chewing.
  • Missing teeth can make your face look older and wrinkled with shrunken cheeks because of sagging muscles which no longer can support your lips & cheeks
  • Adjacent teeth may tilt into the empty space.
Implant failures!!!
  • Failure rate of implant is very rare predicting about 5% to 8% of cases.
  • Systemic conditions like uncontrolled blood pressure and uncontrolled diabetes, bone disease, hepatitis B.
  • Local factors like chronic smokers shows higher incidence of implant failures.
  • Host response like maintaining improper oral hygiene, habits of pan chewing, chewing etc,.
Bone grafts!!!
  • Certain cases there will be minimum bone density for implant placement so in those cases grafts are recommended.
  • Mostly in anteriors cases grafts are needed.
  • Variety of grafting materials are available for uses in dentistry.
  • Autogenous bone is most widely used.
Who is the good candidate for dental implants!!!
  • Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth are candidates for dental implants.
  • Whose systemic conditions are good and bone density , width is more adequate enough.
What is the cost of dental implants!!!
  • The cost of dental implants ranges from 25000 INR to 45000 INR depending on the different implant companies. This cost includes single implant and the crown(metal ceramic \ zirconia).
