Implantation and Oral Surgery


Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. The implant, which is made of titanium, is fitted in bone where the tooth root would normally be.

 

When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and a crown, bridge or denture is then placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth.


 

 

Candidates for Dental Implant

What makes dental implant a dream for many is not just its high price but most importantly, the common knowledge that not everyone can have it. Even if the patient is willing to take all the necessary procedures and pay high prices, if he does not pass all the tests, there is no way he can be granted.

 

Age Limit

There is no age limit for dental implants, though as most dental procedures require, the patient must have all of their permanent teeth present, excluding or including his wisdom teeth. A student from high school would be a good candidate for this type of treatment. As a patient grows older it becomes less likely that dental implants will be successful. The bones become weak as time passes and the healing course from the procedure may be longer. However, it will still depend on the health of the bone.

 

Bone Health

It is a vital procedure to make sure the bone is healthy since the metal will be drilled directly to the bone. If there is lesser bone to hold the artificial root, there is lesser chance that the dental implants will last long in its place.

However, in some rare cases, there are supplemental dental procedures to rescue a patient from being denied. One of which is bone grafting. In this procedure, a bone will be added to increase bone mass. Hence, the implant is held firmly.

 

Oral Health

Aside from the presence of the bone, the overall oral health is checked. The dental experts see to it that the gums and other tissues within the mouth are healthy to stand the foreign body’s (screw) presence.

Implant surgeries are carried out in two stages at our practice. The first stage of the surgery is the placing of the implant itself which is made under local anaesthesia. A period of 3-6 months of healing time is needed before we place the final crown, bridge or denture on top of the implant.

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

Under proper conditions and with diligent oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.
