Dental implants can be made of titanium or zirconia. An implant is comprised of three parts: the implant device itself that serves as substitute for the tooth root, the overlying crown or denture, and the abutment, which connects the implant device to the crown, bridge, or denture. Once the abutment is screwed into the implant, and the tissue sutured, it is left to heal and become stable. The implant gets fused to the jawbone after a period of 4 to 6 months.
Bone grafting is the placement of either natural or synthetic bone material to an area where natural bone is not sufficient. During the procedure, the surgeon will take a section of bone from another area of your body (usually the hip) or use synthetic bone material to graft it onto your jaw bone. Bone grafting will require additional time before the actual dental implant procedure can start as it can take up to several months for the graft to create new, strong bone. When only a minor bone graft is needed, you might be able to have the procedure at the same time as the implant surgery. A panoramic dental x-ray and a CT scan will help check the amount of bone available to determine whether bone grafting is necessary for the implant placement.
In combination with bone grafting, a sinus lift may be required: when the bone is added between your upper jaw and the maxillary sinuses (one of the sinuses located near the nose), the sinus membrane needs to be moved upward (or “lifted”) to make room for the bone.
Dental implants are usually not recommended for:
The timing of the dental implants procedure, and the number of visits required, is largely dependent on each individual, specifically on how quickly the implanted tooth and surrounding area heals and if the patient needs bone grafting. When bone grafting is not required, the complete procedure (from the consultation visit to the last one, where the permanent crown is placed) can take 5 to 6 months. When bone grafting is required, the treatment can take up to 12 months to be completed.
Below are the 6 steps that must occur in order to get a dental implant:
Below, the most frequently used brands for dental implants:
Biohorizons: Alpha-Bio implants are made from a titanium alloy, which is extremely resistant and durable as well as highly biocompatible with the human body.
Bego: The implants from Ankylos are made from purely neutral titanium, ensuring the highest level of compatibility with the human body. The shape is specially designed to ensure perfect fixing after restoration.
Straumann Roxolit: AstraTech implants are designed for immediate restoration and are made of titanium.
Straumann Active Roxolit: Nobel Biocare implants are made from pure titanium and are cold-worked for durability and strength.
Here’s what to expect before and after your treatment:
You may need to have a teeth cleaning done before the actual dental implant procedure can start. Depending on the condition of your teeth, you might need 1 or up to 4 sessions (one session every week).
After the implant session - that is when the implant is inserted into your jawbone - you might feel discomfort or pain once the anaesthesia has worn off. Moreover, some small bruises and swelling in the gum may occur. You may be restricted to a soft-food diet for about a week. Healing time after this procedure ranges from 4 to 6 months.
Once your healing time is complete, the following sessions will involve taking impressions of your teeth, creating custom-made crowns for your implants and doing some tests to see if the crowns fit and feel good in your mouth. Then, the crown will be sealed to your implant. You can go back to your routine activities right after.
