Flawless dental implant treatment in Mumbai

Dental implant, also known as a teeth implant and teeth transplant, is a permanent tooth replacement of missing or mobile teeth. It is often performed for edentulous patients or patients with multiple missing teeth. The treatment begins with the screw insertion, ends with prosthetic tooth placement, and often lasts about 3-6 months. Often known for their lifetime success, dental implants are fixed in the patient’s mouth and have a success rate of over 90-95% over a period of 10 years, even in completely edentulous patients with jaw degeneration.

Dental Implant - Diagnosis and Procedure

Dental Implants

Whether the dentist needs to replace one missing tooth or multiple, dental implants are a reliable, long-term, and promising treatment option. They are as close to natural teeth and provide the patient with almost perfect aesthetics regarding their teeth. However, before placing an implant, the doctor needs to conduct a thorough examination to determine the number and type of implants needed, the degree of jaw degeneration, etc.

Pre-prosthetic implant imaging includes an appraisal of the implant site, determination of the bone quality and quantity, assessment of the alveolar process, and detection of oral pathologies surrounding the operative site. The dentist will use oral radiographs and photographs, along with a smile analysis of the patient to determine the treatment plan. Radiographs required for dental implants are panoramic x-ray (OPG), occlusal x-rays, bitewing x-rays, periapical x-ray, cephalometric x-ray, CT scans, etc.

The dentist will also take a comprehensive medical history as implants can’t be performed for patients that have uncontrolled diabetes or hypertension, etc.

Treatment

Following the diagnosis, your dentist will begin the treatment process. Your treatment plan will be formulated based on the results of the diagnostic tests. Often the patient may require additional surgical procedures like bone grafting, jaw augmentation, ridge expansion, sinus lift, etc., to facilitate the success of the treatment. These surgeries can be either performed at the same time as implant surgery or months before.

Implant surgery is performed as a single-day procedure under local anesthesia. The patient is anesthetized and the surgeon fixes an implant screw in the patient’s jaw. A temporary denture is placed on the implant to maintain an aesthetic appearance. Following the surgery, the patient has to come for follow-up appointments to ensure that the implant is integrating properly with the jaw bone.

When the osseointegration is complete, the dentist performs a minor surgery to remove the tissue on the top of the screw and attach an abutment in its place. About 2 weeks after the placement of the abutment, the artificial tooth prosthesis is attached to the gums.

The teeth can be removable or fixed. Removable teeth can be taken out for repair or cleaning but fixed teeth are permanently cemented into the jaws. Since implants provide a very strong attachment, several teeth can be placed as a bridge on a single implant.

Every patient is different and so is their implant need. Book an appointment with the best dentists in Mumbai for a personalized dental treatment plan.

What can cause a dental implant to fail?

In some cases, the implant screw can become loose. It usually occurs due to poor oral hygiene after dental implant surgery and is noticeable within the first 1-2 weeks of the surgery. Other factors that can result in dental implant failure are:

  • Misalignment of the implant: Proper implant positioning is a big contributor to its success. The implant should be fully integrated with its surrounding bone for it to complete osseointegration, but if that does not happen, the metal screw of the implant remains visible around the gums, which leads to aesthetic failure of the implants.
  • Ill-fitting implants: If the dental surgeon introduces an implant screw that is too small or too big for its surrounding bone, it will not integrate with the bone properly, resulting in a longer healing period or failure of the implant screw to osseointegrate with the bone.
  • Peri-implantitis: Peri-implantitis and other dental infections can result in implant failure. It usually occurs due to poor oral hygiene, smoking, or in diabetic patients. Therefore, proper health and hygiene maintenance are necessary, especially for the first 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
  • Failed osseointegration: Osseointegration is the process of interlinking between the bone and the implant screw. In a healthy implant, it usually takes a few weeks to a few months, but if the bone health, density, and quantity surrounding the implant are insufficient, then it can result in osseointegration failure and a mobile implant.
  • Nerve damage: If the implant is fixed too close to the facial nerves, then it can result in nerve irritation or injury. It usually only happens if the dentist is inexperienced and does not place the screw properly.
  • Poorly taken impressions: If the impressions taken for replacement teeth are not accurate, then there can be a misfit between the gums and the implant, leading to gum disease, bite issues, occlusion problems, etc.
  • Allergic reactions: In rare cases, if you are allergic to the implant or prosthetic tooth material, it can lead to allergic reactions and implant failure. To avoid this, your dentist will take a detailed medical history and perform an allergy test before the surgery itself.

The most common signs of dental implant failure are severe pain and discomfort with swelling in the gums. Contact your dentist immediately if that happens.

What are the types of dental implant surgeries?

Generally, there are 3 types of dental implant procedures that are performed to restore the function of missing teeth:

  • Single-tooth implant: A single-tooth dental implant is usually performed in patients that are only missing a single tooth. It is usually performed if the patient is missing either a crucial molar required for occlusion and chewing or an anterior tooth leading to poor aesthetics and smile. A single implant screw, abutment, and crown are placed in the jaw to restore the tooth.
  • All-on-4 implant: All-on-4 technique is usually performed for people missing a significant number of teeth, for example completely edentulous or partially edentulous patients with an edentulous arch. During the procedure, the entire dental arch is covered with 4 implants that can be used to attach a bridge of a maximum of 14 teeth, i.e., 4 incisors, 2 canines, 4 premolars, and 4 molars in one arch.
  • All-on-6 implant: Similar to all-on-4, all-on-6 implants are normally performed for patients with a completely edentulous arch or mouth. 6 implant screws are fixed in one arch to fix a bridge of a maximum of 16 teeth, i.e., 4 incisors, 2 canines, 4 premolars, and 6 molars in one arch. It is usually performed for patients with less bone loss who do not require any bone grafting. It has a quicker recovery period, easier maintenance, and better aesthetics than dentures and all-on-4 bridges.
