Considering dental implants

Dental implants offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridges.

Dental implants as a tooth replacement

Teeth are present in sockets of the jaw bone. When a tooth is removed, the surrounding bone collapses towards the pocket result in a decrease in the width and height of bone and wears away over time. A dental implant is a top choice for a tooth replacement. Like a healthy tooth, it absorbs and transmits forces to the surrounding tissues, thus maintaining bone levels.

Why dental implants are so popular?

A dental implant is one of the greatest inventions in dentistry in recent years. They became popular as they provide a natural look and comfortable fit. Long-lasting and reliable. High success rate. Especially young aspirants to replace missing natural teeth with implants significantly increased over the years.

How do implants work?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is surgically placed into your jaw bone. They aid in placing the artificial crown/ tooth. The implant fuses with the jaw bone, providing stable support for the artificial tooth.

What happens during the implant procedure?

A dental implant is usually done in two stages over a few months with healing between stages
It involves:

  • Scans and x rays are required to visualize the surrounding bone support needed for implant placement.
  • The first step involves placing the implant into the jaw bone by drilling the bone to make space for it.
  • Wait for a few months while the bone grows around the dental implant.
  • Once the implant is stable, the dentist creates a foundation for the new tooth.
  • After some time, the impression is taken to make the artificial tooth.
  • Finally, an artificial tooth is screwed or cemented into the foundation.


Unlike natural teeth, implant material does not undergo corrosion or decay by the action of acid, sugar, and bacteria in the mouth. Even though being resistant to decay, implants still need to be maintained likewise natural teeth, the reason being they subjected to gum disease and bone loss around the implant if not thoroughly cleaned.

Bridge making, involves adjacent tooth grinding on both sides to act as an abutments/support through which the replaced artificial tooth is connected, acting as a bridge. On contrary, is an implant that functions as an individual support system without damaging adjacent natural tooth structure.

Benefits over the other alternatives

  • Improved appearance.
  • Improved comfort.
  • Improved oral health: Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth. Hence leaving the natural tooth intact. Better access between teeth to floss, improving oral hygiene.
  • Improved self-esteem: Dental implants can give you back your pleasant smile, boosting your confidence.
  • Convenience: dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures.
  • Improved speech: with poor-fitting dentures teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to slur your words. Dental implants
    fuse into the bone, don’t slip like the dentures.
  • Durability- Far better than another alternative.
  • Solid support: dental implants provide a strong basement for partial or full mouth dentures, decreasing the pressure of soft tissues (gums).
  • Easier eating: dental implants acts as a natural tooth increasing chewing efficiency.

In combination with traditional treatment

The entire surface of traditional dentures relies on underlying gums for their support, thus during the process of chewing pressure is applied more on gums compared to the natural teeth or an implant. This eventually results in marked wear of bone. Unlike denture, implant transfer the pressure applied to the surrounding bone preventing bone resorption and provide a strong foundation for the denture. In some cases, the denture will never touch the gums because it is connected to the implant. In many cases, implants are used to anchor partial or complete dentures, providing increased strength, retention, and stability.

Are dental implants noticeable?

No one can make out you have an implant. That’s the miracle. Implants are made to feel completely natural in the mouth. The dentist matches the color and shape of your other teeth to the implant for the perfect match. The only way to discover the dental implant involves a radiograph to show the metal that replaced the root of the

How do I care for dental implants?

Despite being resistant to cavities, implants still need to be maintained as if they are natural teeth because they are subject to gum disease and bone loss around the implant if not properly cleaned.

How long dental implant last?

Implants can function for a long time if you take care properly. They often last long in patients with regular brushing, floss, and follow regular dental visits. Dentists can provide guidelines for better care of your teeth based on proper hygiene, genetic history, and nutritional habits. Following recommendations properly implant has the best chance to last for a lifetime.

How do I know if I am eligible for dental implants?

In general, you are the candidate for dental implants if:

  • One or more missing teeth
  • Sufficient bone to receive implants
  • Jaw bone reached full growth
  • Healthy oral tissues
  • Unwilling for dentures

However, most of the patients are eligible for implants considering the pre-existing medical conditions are under control. You can discuss with your dentist to find out the best plans to undergo the implant procedure.

Dental Implants – Upgrade Your Smile and Restore Your Natural Look

Have you lost your teeth and feel too self-conscious to smile, talk, or even eat in front of others? It’s time for Dental Implants then as they are the best option available for replacing missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

The dental implant procedure is the placement of prosthetic teeth and it is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth that looks and function just like natural teeth. This procedure is a form of prosthetic or artificial replacement dentistry as well as cosmetic dentistry.

Dental implants are placed in the jawbone and they provide a strong foundation for fixed or permanent replacement teeth and they bond with the natural bone.

With proper care and maintenance, the dental implant procedure can provide a smile that lasts a lifetime. The implant procedure is one of the safest and most successful in dental and cosmetic practices when placed by an experienced team of dental implant professionals.

Few of the common dental problems such as tooth decay or gum disease can make the implant treatment less effective so before an implantation treatment is considered, any underlying oral health issues must first be addressed.

Parts of dental implants:

The Fixture/implant, the abutment, and crown are the three main parts of dental implants.

  1. Fixture/Implants: The traditional implant consists of a titanium screw or post that is embedded or bonded within a patient’s jawbone. This screw, also known as titanium post functions as a tooth root. Implants are embedded into the jawbone due to the ability of the surface of the implant to fuse with the surrounding bone through a natural process known as osseointegration. Zygomatic implants are used especially in patients with severe bone loss when there is no enough bone available for dental implant surgery. These have much longer lengths than those used in conventional dental implants and are embedded in the Zygoma (cheekbone).
  1. Abutment: The abutment also known as the connector is placed on the top of the dental implant and it fastens the prosthetic teeth to the implant. It holds and supports the custom-made crowns which are made to fit your mouth. A small screw runs through the dental prosthesis and into the abutment to keep it tight and firm.
  2. Crown/Cap: It is an artificial replacement for the coronal part of the missing tooth/teeth. The crown is designed to be strong and appear as a natural tooth. The Crown is designed in a lab and customized according to the patient’s mouth. Prosthetic teeth that are designed for implants can be for a single tooth or a full set of teeth, also known as full-arch prosthesis.

Having a brief understanding of Dental Implants, let’s move to read as to

What are the types of dental implants?

  1. Conventional Dental Implants –

Single tooth, bridge, and full arch are the 3 different types of conventional dental implants

Single: In this type, an individual implant is placed to replace a single tooth that is lost such as a missing molar, lost anterior, or a front tooth. A healing period is required after the implant is placed and before the final crown is fitted.

Bridge: A bridge is usually supported by implants or healthy teeth from both ends and it fixes crowns over the area of missing teeth.

Full Arch: Full arch implants are placed for a patient with completely missing teeth who wish for a full set of upper or lower teeth, full-arch implants are recommended as full arch are the whole set of prosthetic teeth fixed onto 4 or more implants.

      2.  Zygomatic 

Zygomatic dental implants are embedded into the cheekbone and in this method, it replaces the teeth in the upper jaw as this procedure is performed in case there is a severe bone loss in patients. The method of embedding and the length of the implant are quite different in zygomatic implants and conventional dental implants.

Ever wondered what dental implants can do for you?

  • Replaces missing teeth: Tooth loss can be caused due to several reasons such as tooth decay, periodontal or gum disease, medications, chemotherapy, accident, injury, etc. Replacing a lost tooth is imperative as it stimulates the growth of jaw bone, prevents bone loss, and helps to support facial and bone features. Implants restore your jawbone structure because they reduce the load on the rest of the oral structures in your mouth.
  • Improves the ability to chew and eat: Dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to bite and chew through a variety of foods they love, without having to struggle to chew. Implants are suggested because dentures restore only up to 25% of bite strength whereas the implants often restore 80-100% of a patient’s original bite strength after the healing period.
  • Improved appearance and confident look: Implants are an effective cosmetic treatment for many patients to get strong and natural-looking teeth and regain the confidence to socialize without worrying about their looks or fear if the dentures will fall out while they talk or eat.

To help you determine if implants are right for you, a consultation with our dentist at Credence Dental is recommended as a dentist will thoroughly examine your oral conditions and evaluate bone density and quantity to accommodate implants.

Dental Implants Dentures, Crowns and Bridges

Benefits of implant-supported dentures

Are you tired of loose ill-fitting dentures and don’t feel like wearing your dentures at all?

Denture fitness is a widespread problem faced by multiple patients. There can be various reasons for the ill-fitting nature of dentures but don’t worry we have a solution for your dental concern which is implant-supported overdentures. 

Implant-supported Dentures are a special type of prosthesis which use dental implants as the main source for stability and tight fix. In other words, implant-supported overdentures have a combined quality of dental implants and removable Dentures.  So if we have an alternative to the route removable dentures with good stability and support why not opt for the same!!

Who can benefit from implant-supported overdentures?

If your old dentures are not comfortable for you and they just slip when you are speaking,  Implant-supported overdentures can be a great option to look for. These Dentures provide a sound foundation, thereby improving chewing and speech efficiency. But the main requirement for placement of such dentures is excellent and sufficient density and thickness of residual bone available so that it can hold implants firmly in place.

How do implant-supported dentures function?

On the inner side of dentures, overdenture attachments are placed whose corresponding part is seated over the implants. Both these corresponding attachments fit into each other perfectly, thus preventing the moving or slippage of dentures.

Fixed versus removable prosthesis design

Most patients prefer fixed types of dentures to have the feel of natural teeth. Also in most situations with good bone present and if patients maintain adequate oral hygiene, a fixed implant will be a comfortable and suitable treatment option

As there is an extra cost associated with the fabrication of fixed dentures,  they are costlier than removable ones.  However, implant-supported dentures appear to have fewer routine maintenance requirements.

Utilization of two or four implants leads to excellent function and gives good support. During the treatment planning, it is important to ensure all criteria of the amount of bone present, and the space present is adequate so that the fabrication of denture is not vulnerable to fracture

Steps involved

Initially, your dentist will evaluate entirely to check if you are the ideal candidate for the procedure. This will involve clinical examination and medical and dental history. 

If you are fit for treatment,  the next step will be of extraction of all remaining teeth. Following this, a healing period of a few months will be needed to allow for bone to regenerate and this is followed by further CT scan to evaluate the condition of the bone.

Immediately after tooth extraction, a temporary denture will be given. 

The next step involved the placement of implants which is a surgical procedure carried out under local anesthesia which will again be followed by a healing period. The waiting period after the placement of implants is of 3 to 4 months. After a few months depending on healing next step will be of placement of screw caps for implants following which measurements will be made and sent to a lab for fabrication of overdenture.

Once overdenture is received from the lab they are attached to the implants placed in the jaws with fine precision so that the denture gets engaged with the implants and prevents any movement of the denture.

What are the Advantages of implant-supported overdentures?

For some patients who are not satisfied with the removable dentures because of poor fit or loose nature of denture, implant-supported overdentures can be a boon for any form of defects in gums as generally, the normal Dentures become loose if any growth occurs on gum or if the bone height is reducing.

  1. Patients have superior mastectomy, functional and quality score
  2. Maintenance of oral hygiene is easier 
  3. Aesthetics is superior 
  4. It’s a long-term fixed kind of treatment  option.
