A complete set of teeth is important from both aesthetic and functional point of view.
With the latest advancements in dentistry, we now have an ideal solution to replace your missing teeth; with dental implants which have a very predictable and scientifically proven success rate.
It is basically a titanium based material which is inserted in the alveolar (jaw) bone which can then retain a single crown, a bridge (fixed prosthesis) or dentures.
At Shams Dental Clinic our well trained and highly efficient, skilled and professional implant surgeons use Nobel Biocare or Biohorizon implant system which are internationally acclaimed, well researched and documented to have one of the best success and stability rates.
Our surgeons use a CBCT scan which gives a detailed 3D image of the jaw bone making the treatment plan very accurate.
The treatment plan is customized as per patient needs and every patient in our clinic gets a comprehensive and individualised care by our implantologists.
In many uncomplicated cases, the implantologist may proceed with immediate implant placement after extraction, in the same appointment. They are also known as single day implants and eliminates the need for an extra surgical procedure to place an implant after extraction.
When you have one missing tooth, an implant is placed into the site of the missing teeth, as per the clinical scenario, a temporary crown may be placed immediately after the surgery.
A definitive crown is placed onto the implant after 3 – 6 months when the bone around the implant is completely healed.
When all the teeth are lost, 4 or 6 implants are strategically placed in the jawbone and a fixed prosthesis or a denture is then fabricated taking the support from these placed implants which restores both form and function.
Dental implants mimic the natural teeth.
They last longer than the bridges.
Prevents bone loss.
Maintenance of implants is easier.
No trimming of the adjacent teeth is required for implants.
Dental implant surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, so the area which receives dental implant is completely numb. After the surgery there is mild pain and discomfort which is easily controlled by painkillers.
The cost varies depending on the need of the patient, the number of implants required and the amount of bone available to place the implantsAfter the initial consultation with our experienced surgeon, special radiographs are taken, after which a treatment plan is made and a payment plan is decided upon
Step 1 - After delivering local anaesthesia, the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. If the plan is of immediate crown placement, then a temporary dental crown is placed immediately after the surgery.
If the requirement is delayed prosthesis, then we wait for approximately 3 - 6 months for the bone around the implant to completely heal before step 2.
Step 2 – After exposing the placed implant, an abutment is attached which in turn receives the crown, bridge or dentures as planned. After the placement of the abutment, we wait for a few weeks for the gums around the abutment to completely heal.
Step 3 – After the complete healing of the bone and the gums, a crown, bridge or dentures are placed on to the placed implants i.e the final prosthesis is fixed.
Anyone who has a missing tooth or teeth is a candidate for implants. Certain limiting factors are considered before implant surgery like uncontrolled diabetes, chronic smokers and other medical conditions which affect the density of the jaw bone and the health of the gums.
After a thorough clinical and radiographic assessment of your jaw bone, multiple implants can be placed to receive the denture on top of it.. Since this specific condition requires a thorough check up, it is advisable to consult our implant surgeon as soon as possible to discuss the treatment options in detail.
