What is a Dental Implant?
A Dental implant refers to an artificial root made out of a bio-‐compatible metal like Titanium Or Zirconium. The implant can be placed surgically in the jaw bone and can be followed by a crown or bridge. Once inside the jaw bone, it slowly integrates and becomes a part of the body just like a natural tooth.
Getting the dental implant in Delhi under the guidance of a professional orthodontist is crucial for satisfying results.
Why do you need a dental implant?
If there is a tooth loss due to decay or trauma, or there is a congenitally missing tooth (missing by birth), the patient needs to replace it with a prosthetic/ artificial tooth. Among the various methods of tooth replacement, a dental implant is the most successful and long-‐lasting one. Tooth loss can be a highly debilitating condition and can have serious harmful effects if tooth replacement is not done in time.
Our upper and lower teeth fit into each other just like a Key Fits a lock. A definite alignment and balance naturally occur when a healthy set of teeth is present and the dental implant in Delhi is done by an orthodontist with years of hands-on experience. Once tooth loss due to any reason occurs, contact for the opposing tooth is lost and the health of the opposite tooth is at a huge risk.
By nature, our teeth are meant to contact each other, and loss of natural contact can cause the opposing tooth to drift in an attempt to create a new contact. All this disturbs the natural alignment and creates a disturbance in the jaw function and chewing pattern of the patient.
Since the procedure is quite extensive and requires a skilled professional for a higher success rate, it is crucial that you get the procedure done at the best dental clinic in Delhi.
Alternative to Dental Implants
There are a couple of alternatives that one can consider:
Advantages of Dental Implants
The main advantage of a dental implant is that it is the closest simulation of a natural tooth in terms of look, feel, and function. If the patient has no systemic infection like uncontrolled diabetes or severe bleeding disorders, this is the most comfortable form of tooth replacement. In case multiple teeth are missing, ALL-‐ON-‐4/6/8 treatment can be carried out for the patient wherein multiple teeth in an arch can be anchored over 4/6/8 dental implants. This varies from case to case depending on bone density and structure etc.
Types of Implants :-
Procedure at Coral Dental
When the patient first walks into our clinic, a systemic assessment is done for the patient for any underlying disorders. After the entire health check, a surgical check-up is done by the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon regarding bone health and density. Computed Tomography is used to analyze the placement depth and anteroposterior positioning of the implants.
After preliminary work is completed a Digital Stent is fabricated for aiding in the 3-‐D implant placement and the procedure is carried out in a 30-minute appointment. Advanced bone grafting materials are used to facilitate quick Osseo-‐integration and enhance the stability of the implant. Once the implants are secured in place, a digital impression is recorded by the prosthetic consultant for planning the prosthetic phase of implant therapy. Depending on the required healing time the crowns can be delivered to the patient any time after 72 hours.
Consulting the best dental clinic in Delhi is crucial for undergoing a safe procedure with minimal complications.
Cost of Dental Implant at Coral Dental
An implant treatment at Coral Dental can cost anywhere between Rs. 20,000-‐Rs. 80,000 (per implant). This is the base cost of dental implants in Delhi.
This cost includes:
Phase I treatment – Fabrication of 3D-designed stent, surgical implant placement, placement of bone grafting materials, and closure of the surgical site with resorbable sutures.
2-‐3 appointments of follow-‐up are planned if immediate loading of the implant is not planned. To maintain the natural occlusion and balance after tooth loss, in most cases a temporary or provisional crown is planned during the healing phase.
Phase II treatment-‐after the healing is complete in 8-‐12 weeks, a digital impression is taken by the prosthetic consultant, and fabrication of the prosthetic framework is initiated. This includes support from the casting and milling laboratories and CAD-‐CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided milling) software support. The crowns milled under CAD-‐CAM have accurate design and contours which allow us to eliminate errors of all kinds. Once the prosthesis in the form of crown and bridges is received, the framework is cemented/screwed over the implant abutment.
Post - Treatment Care
The tissue around the implant determines implant success. At Coral Dental we encourage patients for Oral Hygiene Home Maintenance using a powered toothbrush and water flosser.
Oral Prophylaxis or Ultrasonic cleaning every quarter is gold-‐standard in maintaining general oral and tissue health.
