Dental Implants

Replacing a Single tooth | Replacing a several or multiple teeth | Sinus Lift Procedure | Ridge Augmentation | Extraction Site preservation

Dental implants provide these patients with an attractive, functional tooth replacement option that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. With specialist Doctors and a Center of excellence (COE) in dental implants our practice has helped many patients rediscover their natural smiles. Not only do dental implants eliminate gaps left by missing teeth, but they help maintain jawbone mass, provide for comfortable chewing, and offer unsurpassed stability, which removable dentures cannot provide. In addition, dental implants do not require the alteration of neighboring teeth as bridges do.

The Implantation and Crowning Procedure.

For replacement of an individual tooth, a single titanium anchor is carefully implanted within the jaw bone. Once the area has healed, this anchor acts as an artificial tooth root, which will hold the replacement crown firmly in place. Your implant crown or "restoration" is custom crafted to match your surrounding teeth perfectly so that your smile looks incredibly natural. When your restoration is ready, Max Dental will snap the crown into place, finishing your implant. This procedure can be performed to replace multiple teeth, secure a dental bridge, or to create implant secured dentures – there are many possibilities.

Dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.

Esthetic: Teeth implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since Teeth implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and removable dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.

Tooth saving: Teeth implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!

Confidence: Teeth implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about displaced removable dentures and messy removable denture adhesives.

Reliable: The success rate of Teeth implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

Dental Implant presentation
The implant treatment planning process begins when a CT scan is taken of your jawbone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a 3-D visualization of the jawbone that is used with virtual reality software to precisely plan the implant placement. The results are more accurate implant placement, fewer complications, and less chair time for you during the implant surgical procedure in our office.

Bone Grafting For Potential Implant Site

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies (resorbs). This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone that may not be suitable for placement of dental implants. Previously in these situations, most patients were not candidates for placement of dental implants.

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank, or your own bone is taken from the jaw. Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior (back) upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.
Replacing a Single tooth
If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

What are the advantages of a single-tooth dental implant over a bridge?

A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The other common treatment for the loss of a single tooth, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.

In the long term, a single implant can be more aesthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. The area can be flossed normally without having to thread it under the components of a bridge.

Procedure:

During the diagnostic phase, impressions of your teeth are taken, with the resulting models mounted on an articulator, a device that simulates your occlusion (bite), to make certain an implant is the best option to replace the missing tooth. A CT scan is taken to study the site of the proposed implant. The area is evaluated to make certain there is adequate width and length of bone in the area for the implant, and that there are no nerves or other anatomic structures that might be involved with implant placement. A consultation to discuss the Doctors findings, clarify the implant procedure, and answer any questions you might have will follow. A surgical guide is created to make certain the implant is placed precisely, in the most optimal position. Thereafter, topical (gel) anesthetic is applied, and local anesthetic is gently placed into the area. The implant, which is made of surgical grade titanium and looks like a screw, is placed into the jaw bone in the site of the missing tooth, using digital (immediate) radiographs to be certain of precise placement. Over the next three to six months of healing, the implant and the bone are allowed to integrate (bond together) to form an anchor for your artificial tooth. During this time, a temporary tooth replacement can be worn over the implant site.

A second step of the procedure is necessary to uncover the implant and attach an extension. This small metal posts (an abutment), completes the foundation on which your new tooth will be placed. Your gums will be allowed to heal several weeks following this procedure.

Finally, a replacement tooth called a crown will be created by your restorative dentist and attached to the abutment. After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak.

Replacing a several or multiple teeth
Multiple implants, or implant-supported bridges, can replace several missing teeth. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and at least some of the roots.

Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant supported bridges replace teeth without involving adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatment for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, is dependent on support from adjacent teeth. Additionally, many patients find removable partial dentures to be uncomfortable, because they are not "permanent" replacements for missing teeth. In addition, because implant-supported bridges will replace some or all of your missing tooth roots, bone in the area is preserved. With a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, some of the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots may begin to resorb (deteriorate). Because dental implants integrate with your jawbone, they maintain the level of bone in the area.

In the long term, implants are aesthetic, functional and comfortable replacements for missing natural teeth.

Sinus Lift Procedure

The maxillary sinuses are empty spaces on top of the upper back teeth. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend into or close to the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need adequate amounts of bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.

Tooth Implant Cost in India The procedure to develop an implant site with adequate bone is called a sinus graft or sinus augmentation. Specialist enters the sinus in the area of missing upper back teeth. A portion of the sinus membrane is then lifted gently upward, and donor bone is inserted into the floor of the sinus. (Keep in mind that the floor of the sinus is the roof of the upper jaw). After several months of healing, the bone becomes part of your jaw, and dental implants can be inserted and stabilized in this new sinus bone.

The sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants when years ago there was no other option other than wearing removable dentures.

Ridge Augmentation
Ridge deformities in previous extraction areas of the upper and lower jaw can create areas with inadequate bone and tissue thickness for placement of either an esthetic, functional bridge or dental implant restorations. The defects may have been caused by trauma, developmental defects, periodontal disease, severe osseous (bone) loss from a previous extraction or dental infection, or having worn partial or complete dentures.

Ridge augmentation procedures have been shown to greatly enhance the cleansability and appearance of non-implant restorations. They provide the opportunity to develop a site where implants can be successfully placed without compromising long-term successful stability or esthetics. Untreated ridge defects often times have inadequate dimension for implant placement.

Procedure:

Topical (gel) anesthetic is applied, and local anesthetic is gently placed into the area. Soft tissue ridge augmentation is performed in non-implant sites to enhance the cleansability and esthetics of the final restoration. During this procedure, an incision is made to expose the recipient site. A soft tissue graft is then obtained either from a suitable site in your mouth and/or a soft tissue substitute and inserted into the area. The tissue graft is secured with dissolvable sutures.
Dental Implants in Mumbai Hard tissue ridge augmentation is performed to recreate adequate bone dimensions prior to dental implant placement. The hard tissue augmentation is sometimes completed in combination with a soft tissue augmentation to simultaneously enhance the soft tissue profile of the deficient site.

After the incision is made and the gum lifted away, the bony defect is exposed. A block bone graft from another site within the mouth, or cadaver bone particles covered by a membrane and positioned using titanium screws, is placed to restore ridge dimension. Depending on defect size, an average bony healing and maturation time of approximately six months is allowed before dental implants are placed.

Extraction Site preservation
The bone surrounding your teeth is a special type of bone (alveolar ridge bone) that exists solely to support your teeth. As soon as a tooth is removed, this bone begins to degenerate, causing the extraction site (the ridge) to "shrink" The overlying gum tissue also diminishes as the ridge flattens. This occurs in two dimensions. The first is the loss of horizontal width, creating a narrower remaining ridge than when the tooth was present. The second is the loss of vertical height, making the ridge less "tall". This process accelerates in areas where you wear a partial or complete denture.

You have many options to prevent this, and it is important that you consider them BEFORE any teeth are extracted. Most of these procedures are best performed at the time the tooth is removed.

Whenever a tooth is to be extracted, socket site preservation is recommended to maintain as much of your underlying jawbone as possible to optimize the future restoration. You will have several choices for replacing the newly missing teeth. All of the restorative replacements rely on the ridge having adequate bone support and contour for the best function and esthetics. The possible options include:

  • Dental implants: These are root-shaped “anchors” onto which replacement teeth are secured. The more bone support there is for the implants, the stronger the implant replacements and the better the esthetics of the replacement. In some cases, the bone can degenerate to a point where implants can no longer be placed without having more complex bone grafting procedures to create the necessary support. Max Dental Doctors would always prefer to preserve ridge dimension rather than having to rebuild the ridge, because preventing bone loss is much easier, and less expensive, than recreating the bone later.
  • Fixed bridge: This is a restoration that has crowns (caps) placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. The replacement tooth (the pontic) spans across the space. If the bone is deficient, there will be an unsightly space under the pontic that may trap food and compromise esthetics.
  • Other replacement alternatives include removable partial dentures or full dentures. These often are more comfortable the greater the supporting bone present, because there is added support against dislodgement.

  • There are two important aspects of retaining adequate ridge dimension. Non-traumatic extraction techniques are essential in preserving as much bone as possible, a consideration that will also reduce post-extraction discomfort. Molars are divided into component sections to reduce the forces necessary for their removal and to place less pressure on the surrounding socket bony walls.

    In addition to non-traumatic extractions, the second aspect in preventing the collapse of the socket is the placement of bone grafting material into the socket at the time of the extraction.

    After the tooth is extracted, the socket will have bone incrementally added and covered with an absorbable membrane. Early on, the grafting material will support the socket dimension; in time, your own bone will replace it. With the ridge dimension secured, the area potentially will be an excellent site for dental implant-supported replacement teeth. In some cases, additional bone grafting may be necessary prior to implant placement, especially if the extraction site is near the upper sinuses.

    Although the bone created by socket grafting supports and preserves the socket, it will not do so indefinitely. Placing dental implants approximately six months after the socket grafting will provide the best long-lasting support for preserving the dimension of the ridge, allowing you to function as before the extraction. Otherwise the graft may resorb (diminish) over time.

    When a patient is seen for an extraction, Doctors emphasis is always on preserving every millimeter of socket bone to preserve ridge dimension, not on merely removing the tooth.
