Dental Implants: A Comprehensive Overview


A dental implant is a metal post, made of titanium, which replaces the root portion of a missing tooth. We then place a replacement tooth to the post, which can be permanently attached or removable. Permanent replacement teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

An ideal candidate for dental implants:

  • Is a non-smoker
  • Has maintained good oral health
  • Has healthy gums with no signs of gum disease
Single or Multiple Dental Implants

If you’re missing one tooth, one implant and one replacement tooth will take care of your problem. If you’re missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge. Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a strategic number of implants.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures and Bridges

Unlike dental implants, bridges and dentures are not fixed to the bone. This can result in them being unstable, making it difficult to eat or smile with the confidence you want. Dental implants look, feel, and act more natural, just like your natural teeth. They also have a stronger biting force. Implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, which is definitely an advantage since this means they won’t compromise the health of your surrounding healthy teeth. Implants are also likely to last a lifetime, whereas bridges are only expected to last seven to ten years and even less if a root canal is required.

Taking Care of Your Dental Implants

Your new dental implants should be treated just like natural teeth. They require brushing and flossing at least twice every day and regular checkups and cleanings with your dentist. The better you take care of your implants, the more likely they truly will last you a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions, Our Expert Answers.

  • What is special about implants?

    An implant functions like the root of the natural tooth. So, there is no issue of falling dentures and missing teeth. It prevents bone loss and maintains the thickness and height of the jawbone.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    To place an implant, a small surgery is needed. After this, the implant has to integrate with the surrounding bone which takes 3-6 months time. In the meantime, the patient is given temporary dentures or crowns. Once the healing is complete permanent crowns or fixed dentures can be given.

  • What is the cost of implant?

    Implants come in a variety of makes, and sizes. Depending upon the company the cost of the implant varies. The total cost would also depend on the total number of implants needed. Our rates are highly competitive and reasonable.

  • Will it hurt during the surgery?

    No. We perform surgeries only under Local anesthesia (the region where surgery is performed alone is put to sleep) or general anesthesia (where the person is put to sleep for a few hours to do the surgery). We also follow conscious sedation to ease the anxiety and fear of the patient.
