What is dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jaw to support a prosthetic tooth. As a result, the “dental implant system” can include an implant body that serves as an artificial root, an abutment fixation screw, and prosthetic teeth or a crown.

Dental implants have become an option for people who have lost their permanent teeth and do not want to wear dentures. There are two types of dental implants:



  • Endosteal implants are implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The roots can be screws, cylinders, or blades that are attached directly to the jawbones and can hold one or more prosthetic teeth. Endosteal implants are the most common type of dental implant today. 


  • Subperiosteal implants are implants that are placed on top of the jaw. The roots are made of metal framework posts that protrude through the gum to hold the implants in place. Subperiosteal implants are appropriate for patients with shorter jaw height who are unable to hold conventional implants.

Cost, benefits and risks of dental implants.

Dental implants will greatly benefit patients. Not only do dental implants improve cosmetic appearance, but they also improve patient quality of life by restoring chewing ability, keeping adjacent teeth stable, and preventing jawbone shrinkage due to bone loss. Dental implants also help to keep the surrounding bone and gums healthy.

However, there are some cons or downsides to dental implants, such as difficulty cleaning the gums around the implant and interference with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or x-ray procedures. Bad implants can cause periodontal disease and damage to surrounding natural teeth, tissue, and jawbone. Infections and delayed healing can lead to implant body failure or looseness of the implant body. 

Dental implants cost between $1500 and $2000 per implant, not including other components, dentist visits, and post-operative care, for a total cost of $3000 to $4800 per implant, which is higher than alternatives such as dentures and bridges. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime, whereas dentures must be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years.

When do you need to consider dental implants?

Dental implants are appropriate for people who have lost their permanent teeth due to decay, gum disease, canal failure, or injury. Dentists and periodontists or prosthodontists will use computer imaging to examine your teeth and bone structure to determine your eligibility for dental implants, implant methods, and where implants should be placed.

If you decide to get dental implants, your oral tissues must be in good condition, and any underlying oral health issues must be addressed before implantation can be considered. You must also practice good oral hygiene and adhere to aftercare instructions. Also, quitting smoking is a must, as smoking can interfere with osseointegration, the process by which dental implants anchor to the jaw bone.

How are dental implants being placed in your mouth?

A procedure for dental implants can be discussed in two stages:

Preparing the jaw for implantation: To guide the implant fixture into place, a small pilot hole will be drilled into the jaw. Precision is essential at this stage to avoid damaging vital jaw and face structure, including nerves contained within jawbones.

Implant placement: A pilot hole will be gradually widened to allow the implant screw to be inserted. After the implant has been inserted, the surrounding gum tissue is secured, and a protective cover screw is placed on top to allow the site to heal and osseointegration. After several months of healing, your dentist will uncover the implant and attach an abutment to attach the temporary crown, which the gum will grow and shape naturally if necessary. The final step in implant placement is to replace the temporary crowns with the final crown, which is custom-made for each patient.

Life with dental implants

There is a chance that you will experience discomfort, swelling of your gums and face, as well as minor bleeding and bruising at the implant site, following the surgery. Pain relievers may be required following the procedure to alleviate any pain or discomfort. Non-dissolving stitches must be removed within 5 to 7 days of implant surgery. To reduce discomfort and pain, limit your diet to soft foods, and avoid smoking after implant procedures, as previously described.

Healing from the surgical procedure to place the implants can take up to six months, while fitting and seating of the crowns can take up to two months. Follow-up visits to your dentist are critical for tracking your progress. Maintaining good oral hygiene aids in the proper integration of implants with bone structure. Failure to floss and brush can contribute to treatment failure, and infection can occur if the implant and surrounding areas are not adequately cleaned.
