What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is surgically placed in the jaw and it looks and feels like a natural tooth.

A typical dental implant consists of three parts:

Screw: Provides a strong base for supporting the artificial tooth or teeth. This portion is inserted into the bone.

Crown: Commonly called a dental cap, a crown is a cap that completely encircles the screw.

Abutment: The connector between the screw and the crown.Dental Implant

Dental Implant

In cases where there is insufficient width and depth of the jaw bone, dentists perform techniques, such as bone grafting or a sinus lift.

It helps in rebuilding the jawbone and providing a strong foundation for supporting implants.

Advantages of Dental Implant

  • Grinding adjacent tooth structure is not required. [5]
  • Chewing performance is better, even for hard foods.
  • Jawbone does not recede due to implant insertion. [6]
  • Maintenance not required, as it is with dentures.
  • A long-term solution to tooth loss.

  • Non-magnetic
  • Non-corrosive
  • Compatible with the oral tissues
  • Traditionally used as a dental implant material
  • Less costly

  • Metal-free crystal material
  • Tooth-colored
  • Retains less plaque
  • Compatible with the oral tissues
  • Preferred for replacement of anterior teeth
  • More Costly

Types of Dental Implants

The type of dental implant your dentist proposes depends largely upon:

  • Number of teeth that need replacement
  • Condition of gums and jawbone

The All-on-4 treatment concept is patented by Nobel Biocare. [7]

This type involves inserting four implants in either of the jaws – two upright and two tilted at 45 degrees.

Using this technique, one gets a stable denture with minimum implants.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Advantages of All-on-4®

  • Immediate Function
  • Ideal for full-mouth restorations
  • Minimally invasive since only four implants are inserted
  • Avoid additional procedures, such as bone grafting/sinus lift
  • Better patient satisfaction and high recommendation

This type involves restoration of the full arch on either six or eight erect implants.

All-on-6/8 dental implants are needed to be erected when the patient has lost a significant number of teeth in either jaw.

All-on-6 Implants

All-on-6 Implants

Advantages of All-on-6/ 8

  • Immediate functioning
  • Replacement of all missing teeth in an arch on only 6/8 implants
  • Cost-effective, since full-mouth replacement on 6/8 implants
  • Avoids additional procedures, such as bone grafting/sinus lift
  • Stable and long-term alternative to traditional dentures

Zygomatic implants are meant for patients who have a receded upper jawbone.

Insufficient bone makes conventional implants impossible. Zygomatic implants are only used in the upper arch.

The implants are not placed in the jawbone, but in the zygomatic bone, i.e. the cheekbone.

Zygomatic Dental Implants

Zygomatic Implants

Advantages of Zygomatic Implants

  • Best when conventional implants cannot be placed
  • Avoids bone grafting and sinus lift, thus minimizing cost
  • Performed when procedures, such as sinus lift or bone graft, have failed

A hybrid denture is implant-supported. It need not be removed from the mouth for cleaning or brushing.

It is a newer alternative to the traditional denture and combines traditional denture with dental implants.

Hybrid Dentures

Hybrid Dentures

Advantages of Hybrid Dentures

  • No need for messy adhesives to keep dentures in place
  • Soaking overnight in denture solution is not required
  • No need to remove before sleeping as in case of traditional dentures

Dental implants that are smaller or narrower in diameter are called mini implants.

They are roughly the size of a tooth-pick and are primarily used in the anterior region of the lower jaw.

Mini dental implants

Mini dental implants

Advantages of Mini Dental Implants

  • Less expensive
  • Comfortable to place
  • Minimally-invasive technique
  • Avoid additional procedures, such as bone grafting/ sinus lift

When is Mini Implant preferred over the Traditional Dental Implant?

  • In medically compromised patients, in whom traditional surgical implant procedures or bone grafting/ ridge augmentation cannot be done.
  • In patients who cannot afford the traditional implants. [8]
  • When a patient cannot visit the clinic twice and wants full implants in just one visit. [9]

Am I the Right Patient for Implants?

Below is a set of five questions. If you agree to most of these, then you likely need the treatment!

  • Are you having at least one or quite a few missing teeth?
  • Do you use dentures, but not satisfied with it?
  • Does your denture not allow you to speak and chew with confidence?
  • Are you looking for a permanent and long-term solution for your missing teeth?
  • Do you have a previously fixed bridge that you think needs replacement with a better solution?

Erin-N-Erickson

Dental implants need to fuse to the bone via a process called osseointegration. Full integration can take many months to complete. Your doctor determines when it is safe to begin the next phase of treatment. Each case is different.
