How do we place dental Implants?

The placement of dental implants requires a small surgical procedure involving two main stages
Stage 1After the complete examination required investigations such as x-rays are adviced, so that we can get to know the amount of bone present in the site we plan to place the implants.
  • Accordingly, we can decide the size of the implant to be placed.
  • We perform the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
  • The time required may vary depending on no. of implants and surgical requirements.
  • After making the particular area numb we place a small cut and expose the bone. This can be done even immediately after extraction of the teeth if bone is good.
  • After putting the implants we close the site with stitches.
  • Complete healing can take up to 3-6 months during which the bone grows all around the implant to make it a part of the body itself.
Stage 2After the healing period, we expose the implant site to fix an abutment over the implant. (An abutment is a structure over which the artificial tooth is cemented/fixed)
  • After fixing the abutment we take an impression and select a particular shade of the tooth and instruct the laboratory to prepare the artificial tooth).
  • Once the artificial tooth is fixed or cemented you can ready to use your implants as your original teeth.
  • Implants can be used to replace individual tooth/teeth and can also be a support for overdentures.
