Frequent Questions About Dental Implants

Dental Implants are titanium screws that are fixed solidly in the jaw by means of a surgical procedure. Dental Implants provide support for a single missing tooth to several missing teeth. Dental Implants have been around for over 30 years.

Patient have told us that:
a) they eat better
b) eat foods that they have avoided for years.
c) are more confident and more comfortable when they eat.
d) they feel better about themselves.

There are several types made from a variety of materials. The four main categories are endosteal (fixed into the bone), subperiosteal (fixed on top of the bone but under the gums), infra mucosal (embedded into the gum tissue) and augnentation (where natural or artificial bone is added to the jaw). There are over 60 dental manufactures in the world. However, in our practice we only utilize Implants with a proven track record, that have undergone extensive animal and human studies.

Almost all endosteal implants today are made from C.P. Titanium or its alloy, 6/4 Titanium. Subperiosteal implants generally are made from either Vitallium TM or 6/4 Titanium. Some implants are coated with synthetic bone (Hydroxylapatite, HA).

Studies have shown the HA to actively participate in the healing process. Instead of bone healing from only the bone surface, healing also occurs simultaneously from the HA surface. HA coated implants are recommended for areas where bone quality and or quantity is limited.

Allergic reaction to titanium is extremely rare, except for some anticipated discomfort due to the surgical procedure dental implants are very predictable.

Using modem techniques, and appropriate surgical and denture protocol, expected success rates are more than 90%. With proper hygiene habits and maintenance implants are designed to last a lifetime. There are several factors beyond the control of both the patient and the provider which can affect the life of an implant retained denture. Accidents and illnesses can have a deleterious effect. It is therefore impossible to make promises or guarantees regarding the longevity of an implant. Should a problem arise, it normally does so during the first six months to a year following surgery, during the period of bone healing. After this period, problems appear to be less frequent. However, follow-up by our office and the proper home care by the patient are mandatory.

Those who:
a) are dissatisfied with loose uncomfortable dentures.
b) wish to eat better.
c) wish to talk and laugh with confidence.
d) are tired of using adhesives to secure their dentures.

Implant retained over-dentures are far more comfortable to wear than regular dentures. You can finally smile, talk, eat, laugh again naturally with confidence and not worry about them lifting or dropping.

The success of a dental implant depends upon regular dental visits and meticulous oral hygiene. A healthy mouth helps ensure the best possible functioning of the dental implant.

Typically, in a lower jaw the total treatment time will be around 3 – 5 months. The upper jaw will usually take about 4 – 6 months. If a bone grafting procedure is required to increase the height of the bone an additional six months will be necessary. Recent extractions must be allowed to heal completely before implants are placed.

Dental implant surgery is a minor procedure generally done in the dental office. If you are healthy enough to have tooth/teeth “pulled”, you are healthy enough to undergo dental implant surgery. Comparatively, it is less traumatic than having an impacted wisdom tooth extracted.

The chance of complications in dental implant surgery is directly related to the amount of bone in the jaw. In the back part of the lower jaw, injuries to a nerve may cause numbness to that side of the lower lip either temporarily or permanently. In the back part of the upper jaw, the dental implant may cause perforation of the sinus. For some individuals who have severely resorbed jaws, (very little bone) there is a tendency of bruising in the chin and neck areas. The bruises usually take ten days to disappear. However, during the consultation, the oral surgeon will be able to discuss these with you as well as the ways to minimize these risks.

The first phase of the surgery is where the Fixtures (first part of the implant that stays in the bone) are placed. This usually takes 2-3 hours. The second procedure to uncover the fixtures and attach the abutment (second part of the implant that stays above the gums). This usually takes an hour or less.

Patients are told that there will be some post-operative discomfort and swelling but this will be minimal. In addition, patients are reassured that they will be provided with appropriate analgesics and antibiotics as necessary. The oral surgeon will also be available at any time to manage any complications that may occur, and that the patient should call if they have any concerns.

Modem dental implants are made from the most biocompatible (body acceptable) material known to man Titanium. Titanium is used in hip replacements and in pins used to hold broken bones together. There are no recorded cases of rejection. Dental implants differ from transplants of body parts, such as hearts, lungs, kidneys, etc., where an immune reaction can occur and rejection result. The possibility of infection around an implant is like that found around natural teeth. Good oral hygiene is a must for gum tissue to remain healthy and normal around your implants.

Reaction to the placement of implants vary from patient to patient and are directly related to the number of implants placed. Typically, you can resume normal activities one to two days following surgery. In those cases where extensive surgery is performed, you may require 3 or 4 days to resume normal activity.

Yes and no, the denture will require a minor adjustment for the placement of a soft cushioning liner so you’re not to disturb the healing process. The liner may require replacement every few months. However, we recommend that you not wear the denture continuously for at least one week after surgery and not to eat hard foods with it for at least 2 – 3 weeks. Initial healing time is very critical to the success of the implants.

Most people recover in one or two days. We recommend allowing three to four days for recovery. The procedure can be arranged to be done on a Thursday or Friday, allowing the weekend for recovery.

A failed dental implant will be loose and is uncomfortable when pressure is applied. The dental implant can be removed by oral surgeon quite easily and a new dental implant can be re-implanted in the same area after 3 months. Reputable Dental Implant Manufacturers provide guarantee replacement of failed implants.

Fees for dentures vary from Denturist to Denturist. If implants are used to retain the denture, the additional investment can range widely depending upon the number of implants required and the design of the prosthesis.

The life expectancy of implant retained dentures are like regular dentures.

No, the surgery and implant placement are not covered. But if you have dental insurance procedures such as the oral examinations, radiographs (x-rays), dentures etc. may be covered.

Yes. Since most dental implant treatments take a few months to complete, payments can be made by instalments with no interest charged.

Yes. The construction of Implant over dentures requires special knowledge and is not practiced by every dentist or denturist.
