BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE

Implant procedure as such is nowadays a very common procedure and it can be done in almost all the patients. However, before the start of the procedure your dentist will ask you to get an OPG/CBCT (depending on the patient) so that your bone quality can be evaluated to plan the type of implant to be placed.

Implants can be placed in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and other common medical histories, provided you are under right medication and the condition is under control.

Inform your dentist about any habits like smoking, alcohol, vaping or any other form of taking tobacco. This is important because smoking has a major role in the failure of the implants.


DO’S AND DON’TS BEFORE AND AFTER IMPLANTS


Before planning the surgical part of placing an implant, you will undergo regular check-up for blood pressure, sugar levels and your pulse rate. If the values are under normal range, you are fit to undergo the procedure.

If you’re a smoker, then you are advised to stop smoking at least one week before the procedure.

Special care is taken for patients with cardiac history and other medical conditions like asthma, epilepsy (fits).

After the procedure, you are given certain instructions by your dentists which when followed properly will help in faster and better healing of surgical wound. Some of the common things to follow are:


  • Not to spit forcefully for at least 24 hours.
  • Avoid hard, hot and spicy foods for 3-4 days.
  • Avoid brushing forcefully in the implant region.
  • If you are a smoker, then you will be advised not to smoke for 2-3 weeks.

IS DENTAL IMPLANT EXPENSIVE?


When compared to conventional methods of replacing teeth like dentures and bridges, implant appears to be expensive. But, in the long run, they are worth your money as they don’t have to be replaced often since they have very high success rate.


WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO PLACE AN IMPLANT?


There is no such age considered as right age for implants. If your bone growth is complete, then you can opt implant as your choice of replacing your missing teeth. Usually implant can be placed in all the patients above 18 years of age.



Average price of dental implant

Price of best dental implant can vary according to the site of implant placement, material of the implant, number of implants to be placed and brand of the implant. The average cost of one tooth dental implant which is made up of titanium alloy is not less than $250 (as of 2019).



Why the cost of implant varies according to the site of implant placement?

The implant cost will depend on the site of placement (that is the bone quality), bone with minimal quality may require more number of implants than usual to increase the anchorage and in upper jaw when the height of the bone is very low you may be advised to have a zygoma implant (lengthier implant), which takes support from your cheek bone.


What are the types of implants and its cost?

The material also gives variation in dental implant cost, usually the implant is made up of grade 5 titanium alloy which is not a corrosive material and the strength of the titanium is comparatively greater. Zirconia implants which is equally stable and strength will have more aesthetic and cost more than titanium implant.


Will increased number of implant, will cost extra?

Yes, Average cost of denture implant will also depend on the numbers of implant used to with stand the dentures. The least number of implant used to hold a complete denture is four or six. This procedure is also known as all on 4 or all on 6 respectively.


What are the top brands of dental implants and what’s its cost?

The brands of dental implants also may cause variation in the average price of dental implant. The few leading brands in dental implants are nobelbiocare, dentium, straumann, osstem, dio implants, megagen implants. The price list of these implants in Senthil Dental Care are given bellow,

What are All on 4 dental implants and its cost in Chennai?

As we discussed earlier all on 4 dental implants is a technique of implant placement which holds the full denture (complete set of teeth). In this technique, four implants are placed in each arch which has no teeth. These four implants are placed in a slanting position to increase the anchorage.

How slanting implants produce more anchorage?

Usually implants have its anchorage by two methods, one is mechanical and the next is bio mechanical.

When an implant is placed in a crossed position the implant holds the bone like a anchor to the soil, this is mechanical and tight contact to the bone forms the primary stability, the bone starts fusing to the implant in the later period, the bone grows and penetrates in to the micro-pores of the implant which is called as osseo –integration, this cause secondary stability.

What is the duration of teeth fixing In all on 4?

Usually the duration of teeth fixing in all on 4 technique will be just 74 hours, but the duration may increase depending on the bone quality of individuals.

Is all on 4 technique is suitable for all?

Yes, but the more the implant more the stability of the denture. All on four technique was discovered for patients with severe bone loss on the back region of the jaw. If your doctor finds the quality of bone is good in back region of the jaw then he can place six implants(all on 6) for fixing a denture. If there is sever bone loss in front and back region then the doctor advice you for Zygoma implants.

Is bone grafting and additional procedures are required for this technique?

No, these techniques do not require any special procedures as they are simple procedure which can be done on local anesthesia, if needed the patient can go for conscious sedation.

What type of teeth is used in all on 4 implant?

Usually hybrid denture is placed initially (acrylic teeth), this is advisable because the denture is rigid and very low in weight.

Can I upgrade my teeth in future and what is the type of teeth can I place?

Yes you can upgrade your teeth in future and you can place ceramic or zirconia teeth of your convenience and this is not a must.

What is the average cost of all on 4?

Again the cost of dental implants depends on the dental implant brands and cost of implant is little higher than normal implant placed for single teeth, this is because of additional components used for to withhold the entire denture in this procedure.

Dental Implant Cost (in USD) including acrylic teeth
Nobel biocare $2400/ per jaw
Dentium $2000/ per jaw
Dionavi $2100/ per jaw
What are all on 6?

As we discussed earlier when a individual have a good amount of bone in the back region of the jaw its always better to go with 6 implants rather than 4 implants to increase the stabilization of the teeth. Your dentist may suggest all on 6 even if the bone in the back region is poor, this is because the smile width may be more and more number of teeth may be required than normal denture to please your smile quality.

Do additional procedure required during all on 6? What are they?

There are two options, if the bone quality is good in the back region you will not require a additional procedure but if the quality is poor additional procedures like sinus lifting may be required to place the implant in the back region.

Other procedures are same as all on 4.

What is the average cost of all on 6?

Again the cost of dental implants depends on the dental implant brands and cost of implant is little higher than normal implant placed for single teeth, this is because of additional components used for to withhold the entire denture in this procedure.

What are Zygoma implants?

Zygoma implants (also known as long implants, zygomatic implants) are implants which are placed in upper jaw where there is no bone (bone resorption) to with stand a conventional implants. This type of implants takes support from the cheek bone which is also called as zygomatic bone in medical term hence the name Zygoma.

Why does jaw bone get resorbed?

When there is a tooth loss, the bone which was previously holding the teeth gets slowly eroded due to loss of function. This resorption is continues process till certain limit (this is why your dentist advise you to replace a teeth as soon as possible when extracted).

Can Zygoma implants placed in lower arch?

No, Zygoma is only advisable for upper arch.

How many Zygoma implants are necessary for full mouth dental?

Usually two Zygoma implant are enough to place a denture but when there is extreme bone loss four Zygoma implants may be necessary, this is called quad Zygoma.

Is Zygoma implant safe?

Yes, Zygoma implants are safe unless its placed by a trained maxillofacial surgeon.

How long does Zygoma implant last?

Zygoma implant once placed initially needed attention to avoid secondary infection, once placed is valid for life time.

Is sinus lift necessary for Zygoma implants?

Yes, since the implant crosses the sinus it will be lifted during the procedure but recent technique involves with by passing the sinus externally.

Is sinus procedure is painful procedure?

The surgery will be performed In general anesthesia in a operation theater hence you will not feel the pain.

How Zygoma procedure is done

  1. We evaluate the bone and length of the implant with the CBCT radiograph

  7. Every three month online review for one year.

How much do Zygoma implant cost?

In our clinic we only perform Zygoma implant with Nobel biocare brand. The cost of Zygoma implant is little higher than normal implant that will be $1600 (USD) per Zygoma implant.

What are Basal implants?

Basal implants are single piece implants in which the teeth connecting component of an implant is pre-fused to the implant body, this is also called as single piece implant. Before having a brief view of this implant let us know what are the types of bone present in our body are.

There are two types of bone which helps in implantation, one is hard or basal cortical bone another is soft or cancellous bone. Conventional implant( two piece implant) uses this cancellous bone for implantation and basal implant ( single piece implant) uses basal cortical bone for implantation.

Basal bones are the strongest bones in our body the implant uses this bone for rigid fixation and gets anchored to the bone.

How long will it take to replace a using basal implant ?

Usually teeth will be replaced within 24 hrs to 3 days to fix the teeth on a basal implant.

Can single teeth be replaced with single basal implant?

Mostly yes, but when replacing a single molar it will take the support of two implants.

Will it be painful?

No, the procedure is done under local anesthesia so there will not be any pain during and after placement.

Do special procedures like sinus lifting and bone grafting required for placement of basal implants?

No, in fact basal implants are discovered to avoid those procedures.

How many implants required to place a complete tooth with basal implant?

Not like conventional implants, these implant procedures for full mouth rehab will take approximately ten implants in upper jaw and eight implants in lower jaw. The implant teeth can be fixed in 74hrs.The teeth are not upgradable.
