All About Implant Dentistry

Dental implants restore the healthy functions and aesthetics of a natural tooth. They are bio-inert, screw-like titanium posts inserted in the jaw bone.

After a healing period, an artificial crown is attached to the implant.

Structure of dental implant

Components of a Dental Implant

✅ Implant crown

✅ Implant abutment

✅ Implant fixture

Types of Dental Implants

  • One stage: Implant fixture & healing cap is placed in the same appointment.
  • Two-stage: Implant fixtures are placed first & the healing cap one week later.
  • All on 4: All the teeth in the jaw are replaced with the support of 4 implants.
  • All on 6: All the teeth in the jaw are replaced with the support of 6 implants.
  • All on 8: All the teeth in the jaw are replaced with the support of 8 implants.

Dental Implant Procedure

1. First, the implant post is placed into the jaw bone surgically.

2. A healing screw is placed on the implant fixture one week after the surgery.

3. A period of 6 weeks to 6 months is given for healing, a process called osseointegration occurs. [4]

4. During osseointegration, new bone grows around the implant and anchors it firmly in the jaw bone.

5. Lastly, the implant abutment is fixed to the implant post, and an artificial crown is attached.

Additional Procedures

Sinus Lifts

The Maxillary Sinus is lifted when the bone is insufficient to place an implant. [10]

A surgical procedure that uses bone transplant to strengthen the unhealthy bone and compensate for the lost bone.

A dental bone graft provides volume and density to areas of the jaw with the insufficient bone for implant placement. [11]

Aftercare

  • Avoid smoking
  • Maintain overall oral hygiene
  • Don’t disturb the surgical site
  • Use mouthwashes with 0.12% chlorhexidine for 2 weeks [12]
