IMPLANT PLACEMENT

1. WHAT IS DENTAL IMPLANT?

Implant placement is a technique in which a titanium post is placed into the jawbone to replace the tooth root that has been lost, and later on which a prosthesis will be placed. Prosthesis on implant will be created to match the shape and colour of real teeth, to bring you comfort and restore the chewing functionality.

2. WHICH CASE IS SUITABLE FOR IMPLANT PLACEMENT?

People with missing tooth / teeth who want to restore their smile and chewing functionality
People who experience issues with their current denture or dental bridge
People with sufficient bone tissue to support the implant (Otherwise might require bone graft and/or sinus lift)

3. WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF DENTAL IMPLANT?

Pros:

Replacing the lost tooth / teeth without affecting surrounding ones
High aesthetic and better chewing functionality
Prevent bone loss that is caused by tooth loss
Cons:

High cost compared to traditional dental bridge technique
Longer treatment time (especially if bone graft is required)

4. WHAT IS IMPLANT PLACEMENT PROCEDURE?

Step 1: The procedure for dental implant fluctuates depending on the quantity of implant. On average, each case requires approximately 14-15 days, including 4-5 appointments and one check up.

Taking X-rays and general examination
Implant placement surgery (with teeth removal and bone graft if needed) in one appointment
Take impression for temporary prosthesis (The technique would vary depending on the type of prosthesis)
Install the temporary prosthesis and adjustment (if needed) in several appointments. Please note temporary prosthesis is mainly for appearance and not for functionality
Final check up
Step 2: (6 – 8 months later): On average, each case requires approximately 10 days

Take CT Cone Beam X-rays and check the implant(s)
Take impression for study cast
Install permanent prosthesis and adjustment (2-3 appointments)
Re-examination and final check up
It is recommended that patients have re-examination every 6 months, either at our center or with any local dentist.
