With an overall success rate of about 95% and almost 50 years of clinical research to back them up, tooth implant is frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
Dental Implant is an advanced medical technology for the treatment of tooth loss. It is a permanent tooth replacement technique.

Permanent tooth replacement technique The implants have 3 parts first the implant then the abutment for the attachment between crown and implant underneath in the jaw bone and third the crowns, bridges or dentures. The implant holds a crown, bridge or denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. The dental implants are considered as the next best thing to our natural teeth.It provides much greater stability for more effective eating, speaking and smiling.

What are the procedures involved?
The procedure commences after thorough diagnosis and treatment planning.
Stage 1: Insertion of the implant in the Jaw bone, which is a non-painful procedure. . The procedure is performed under aseptic condition with proper facilities and conditions for oral implant surgery. Local anaesthesia is given to control pain during the operation.

A recipient site of the same size and shape as the implant is created in the jaw bone with drilling instruments. The implant is inserted into the site prepared. Usually, a healing period of 3 to 6 months is required for the jaw bone to fuse with the implant. The jaw bone has different densities in different areas ----- the denser the bone, the shorter the healing period. . Usually, a straight forward implant treatment takes about 4 to 7 months to complete. Longer periods are required for complex situation such as cases requiring bone grafting. Pain which may occur after the procedure can be effectively controlled with oral medications.

Stage 2: Placement of the abutment on the implants after 3-6 months The healing period is normally 3 months for the new bone to fill in between the implant and the jaw bone to form a permanent attachment, and then the abutment is placed to hold the prosthesis on the implant.Now the impression of jaws is taken for fabrication of the replacement part on the implant for a crown or bridge or denture base.

Stage 3: Fixing of the Prosthetic part on the abutment. The replacement phase of the implant does not require anaesthesia. This phase is basically non-invasive and non-surgical in nature. Now the prosthetic part; which may be a crown or the bridge or to hold the denture base for more retention and stability is fixed on to the abutment.
