What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a long-term solution for missing teeth. It is a titanium/zirconium screw integrated into the jaw bone.

Structure of dental implantStructure of Dental Implant

After osseointegration (bonding of the bone to the implant), a crown is screwed or cemented on the implant.

Dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth because they have the most natural feel and least diet limitations.

Moreover, they prevent bone loss, unlike bridges and dentures.

When Are Implants Needed?

Dental implants are the best solution to retain jawbone integrity and health.

To understand when they’re needed, it is necessary to understand the repercussions of jawbone loss.

Those consequences include:

  • Facial collapse [4]
  • Loose teeth
  • Inability to consume certain foods

Success Rate of Dental Implants

The success rate for dental implants varies according to multiple factors. These factors include:

  • Smoking [5]
  • Patient’s age (60 and above has the lowest survival rate)
  • Bone quality over the years (not just before having the procedure)
  • Length and diameter of the implant [6]
  • That being said, the survival rate of dental implants was measured to be 98.6% after five years [7] and 94.6% after 13 years. [8]

Additional Procedures

The dental implant procedure is straightforward in theory.

However, certain complications/conditions may require additional procedures to tick all the qualification boxes.

The two common additional procedures are sinus lifts and bone grafts.

Sinus Lifts

This surgery is conducted on the upper jaw to increase the bone by a few millimeters, necessary for endosteal dental implants.

During a sinus lift, a dentist lifts your sinus membrane to make room for the bone.

Sinus Lift

Sinus lift

Bone Grafts

This is a surgery where the bone is integrated into either jaw to:

  • promote bone growth and
  • prepare the patient for dental implant surgery.

Placing a bone graft for a dental implant allows the formation of new bone supporting it.

Bone Graft

Bone graft

Aftercare

To increase the lifespan of your dental implants, their maintenance should become second nature.

Dental implants aftercare is straightforward. It can be split into two categories: Short-term care & long-term care.

Combining brushing teeth and flossing is important to minimize/eliminate any accumulation of bacteria next to the implants’ site.

Otherwise, inflammation will occur. Said inflammation can be a driving factor in bone loss. Bone loss over time can cause implants to fail.
