Does Dental Implant Brand Matter?

Does Dental Implant Brand Matter?

Dental Implant Brand :There is a growing demand for dental implants in Gurgaon and now dental implants in India are a common solution for missing teeth replacement.  Looking at these now there a lot more manufacturers of dental implants, than there were 3 years back.

If your are  researching dental implant brand then you could probably name about half a dozen or so easily, but in all there are more than 150 dental implant brand to choose from. Center for Dental Implants and Esthetics – a premier dental implant clinic in Gurgaon, provides over 16 dental implant brand. You can find details and cost of dental implants on our website.

Nearly 95% dental implants are made from titanium but vary in shape, fitting, grooves, coating on surface and price.  A lot of times Dentist or Dental clinics have their own dental implant brand preference, which may be governed by their experience with the dental implant brand, availability of accessories and equipment for that brand or may be for commercial reasons. But the big question is does the choice of brand have any bearing on the success of the implants and on their durability?

Dental Implants BrandWho are the manufacturers?

Some of the more popular dental implant brand include Nobel Biocare, Straumann, Adin, Megagen, Dentium, Osstem, CWM, Top and Dio Digital Implants.

What are the main differences in Dental Implant Brand?

As mentioned earlier every dental set up and dentist may have its own favourite brand, Let’s see why a dental implant brand matters.

Ease of use

Whether you are having dental implants in Gurgaon, or dental implants anywhere in India, your implantologist will tell you that some brands are simply easier to fit.  Nobel Biocare implant, for instance has a unique locking taper implant to abutment connection which allows for a 360 degree universal abutment positioning which is also clinically sealed to prevent bacteria forming. They are tapped into place instead of being screwed which makes them easier to use than some other makes.

Biocompatibility

A very important part of the dental implant procedure is the process known as osseointegration where the surrounding bone fuses with the implant. Some types of implants are better able to fuse with the bone than others. Nobel Biocare and Straumann implants use a micro textured surface which gives the new bone something to grip on to and speeds up the osseointegration process. Nobel Biocare Implants are coated with chemical which catalyses bone formation faster.

Material

Most dental implants are made from titanium but some manufacturers are starting to use zirconia which works in a similar fashion to titanium but has an aesthetic advantage in that it is white in colour.

Design

Some dental implants like Dentium, CWM, Osstem and Nobel Biocare have active design, which are better suited for conditions, where bone density is low or a tooth is extracted and implant is being  done at the site, immediately. Tapered design and additional groves helps in better bone integration.

 

Does this matter?

Yes it does, choosing a random dental implant brand is not advisable. Your implantologist understands your dental situation and let her suggest the possible options. An implant patient must inquire about why a particular dental implant brand is suggested in his or her case.

Right implant means : faster healing, better osseo-integration, stable and successful implants which last for life time.

Are some brands better than others? No, the cost or type of brand doesn’t make it better, it’s your individual situation that governs type of implants and brands to be used.

Although dental implant brand vary from one manufacturer to another, and most dentists would agree that it is important to make the right choice of dental implant for each patient, ultimately the consensus of opinion is that the success of an implant is 5% choice of implant and 95% skill of the dental implantologist or surgeon.

Center for Dental Implants & Esthetics – is proud that at the helm of our institution we have Dr Jyoti Singh (MDS- Prsotho), who takes every care to suggest right implant brand and technique for the implant procedure.She has over 12 years of experience with 6000+ dental implants placed at an impressive success rate of 99.9%. She is acclaimed Nobel Biocare All-on-4 Implant system expert.

Why Cheap Dental Implants Should Never Be An Option?

Why Cheap Dental Implants Should Never Be An Option?

Cheap dental Implants
Cheap dental Implants

Cheap dental implants is definitely never an option for dental implants. Remember whatever you pay and spend on your dental implants is really worth it because it’s after all a matter of your health, hygiene and personal appearance as well. So why should you compromise on it at all?

The cost of dental implants varies widely across the country and no insurance covers the implants procedure. Cost of the entire dental implants procedure can depend on your particular dental situation. If the condition is severe, you might be in for an expensive dental implant surgery but then again keep in mind the comfortable functioning that dental implants will bring to you and the success rates of the implant surgery is also very high, hence it is considered as the gold standard for tooth restoration.

The cost goes up if you are in need of bone grafting or sinus lift surgery along with the implant surgery too. A lot of people consider going to an inexperienced mom & pop dental office  to get cheap dental implants and then they suffer. This is because a lot of people don’t really examine the pros and cons associated with getting dental implants from inexperienced dentists.

Don’t forget the cheap dental implants will definitely be compromising on the quality the higher priced implants promise to deliver. And where is the guarantee that getting a cheap implant is going to yield positive outcomes for you? If you really care for your health, then you should know that it is really not worth it to get cheap dental implants and have yourself, and your health, at a risk.

The biggest disadvantages of getting cheap dental implants are

  1. Delayed healing & osseo-integration & failed implants: If your situation demands an active implant and to save cost the dentist places a passive implant, then the healing would be delayed and care is not taken implants may fail.
  2. Inexperienced Implantologist : For a lot of dentists implants are a big ticket procedure, whether they know the procedure or not they still will want to do that, if their skills don’t come handy, they use price or cost as factor to attract prospective patients and offer cheap dental implants
  3. Loss of Time, Money & Opportunity : If a cheaper implants fails not only you loose time, effort and money in getting the procedure done. The site where implant failed may never be available for another implant.
  4. Poor-Quality Dental Implants Could Lead to Future Problems While it’s not for us to say that every cheap dental implant will be of a poor quality, there’s no doubt that you’d be taking that risk. Your implant could break or you may discover that it hasn’t been fitted into your gum correctly (due to inefficient surgery). Not only will this cause you a lot of pain and discomfort, but it will also have a significant effect on your day-to-day life.
  5. Loosing Function of teeth:  Long-term issues can happen for a wide range of reasons. If the dentist places the implant incorrectly into the jaw (for example, at the wrong angle or location), this will make it difficult to chew and the additional stress on the implant may lead to bone loss. When this happens, the dental implant will become loose and create a pocket in the gum, creating enough room for food and bacteria to build up — the perfect breeding ground for infection

Getting dental implants from a less-reputable practice or a practice which doesn’t specializes in Dental Implants can also cause other serious problems — ones that not only affect your teeth but your bank balance, too. If you’re unable to attain a refund for insufficient or even negligent work, you’ll have to go down the legal route. Failing that, you’ll have to pay the price for corrective surgery from a different practice. By choosing the right implantologist from the beginning, you eliminate the risk of needing corrective surgery later down the line.

All on 4 implants in India

All about All On 4 Implants in India

If you need full mouth implants to replace lost teeth, you’ll almost certainly be looking at ways to save money on your treatment. All-on-4 implants offer a cost-effective solution as they require fewer implants in the jaw than traditional methods.

Today we’ll answer questions you might have about getting All-on-4 implants in India such as:

  • How much does the All-on-4 procedure cost in India?
  • What does it involve?
  • Is this type of implant safe?
  • Where can I find a clinic which specializes in All-on-4 implants in India?
  • Are there ways to lower the cost further?
  • What’s the difference between implants and dentures?

WHAT ARE ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS?

All-on-4, is a registered trademark of Nobel Biocare, is a technique for replacing teeth using fewer implants than traditional methods. After Nobel Biocare, other implant systems have also introduced the system and now any implant can be used for fixing All-on-4 implants. This technique carries the following three traits:

  1. As few as four implants per jaw

All on 4 Implants in India

Whereas a full mouth of implants using traditional methods would require 8-10 implants per jaw, the All-on-4 technique uses just four. Sometimes five or six are needed on the upper jaw due to lower bone density.

  1. Angled rear implants for optimum strength

Rather than being inserted vertically, the rear implants are at a 30-45 degree angle. This means even patients who have suffered bone loss should be eligible for All-on-4 without having to go through the costly and lengthy process of a bone graft

  1. The ability to be implanted and fitted in a day

This last trait has earned them the nickname ‘teeth in a day’, ‘smile in a day’ or ‘same day teeth’. This is a drastic improvement on traditional implant procedures which can take six months or more to complete with extensive recovery time at each step of the progress.

The following animation shows how All-on-4 treatment works:

Advantages of All-on-4 dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants offer many benefits over conventional implants and removable dentures. These include:

  • Short treatment and recovery time
  • Implants placed on the same day as extraction
  • Comfortable and stable structure to support crowns and bridges
  • Fixed in place – no need to remove for cleaning
  • Don’t slip or fall out
  • Suitable for patients with jaw bone loss
  • Cheaper than traditional techniques that use 8-10 implants

Disdvantages of All-on-4 dental Implants

Of course, there are also some drawbacks to this type of implant:

  • Some people report problems with spitting or hissing while speaking
  • Not a fully customized solution
  • A single implant failing can cause problems with the whole jaw
  • The artificial gum bridge may feel bulky in your mouth

All-on-4 vs. dentures

The traditional way to replace a full jaw of teeth is with removable dentures. Also known as “false teeth”, these consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and teeth made from resin or porcelain

Conventional dentures have a lot of supporting acrylic material

Dentures fit over the gums and stay in place either with suction alone, or with a dental adhesive. Properly fitting dentures shouldn’t require any adhesive.

However, the supporting bone shrinks over time as there are no teeth for it to hold in place, and this change of shape will cause dentures to become loose. This means they need to be replaced regularly to avoid discomfort and problems eating.

Removable dentures are custom-made to precisely fit the patient’s mouth. The upper denture covers the roof of the mouth and the lower one is a horseshoe shape to allow room for the tongue. They must be removed for cleaning, usually overnight (hence the clichĂ© of false teeth in a glass on the bedside table).

In contrast, All-on-4 implants are fixed in place and should act just like natural teeth in terms of appearance, chewing and comfort. There is no risk of them slipping out of place while the wearer is talking or eating.

Although the prosthetic teeth are fixed to an artificial gum, this covers only a small area of the real gum when compared to dentures. The join is hidden far enough behind the lips that it won’t be visible when you smile.

Dentures may offer initial cost benefit over any kind of implants but they do need to be replaced every five years on average.

All-on-4 vs. regular implants

The conventional way to replace a full jaw of teeth with implants would be with a combination of single-tooth implants and implant-supported dental bridges. Bridges allow several ‘teeth’ to be supported by one implant at each end instead of one implant per tooth. This technique usually requires 8-10 implants per jaw for a full set of replacement teeth.

While both techniques involve drilling sockets in the jaw bone, All-on-4 requires fewer implants. This makes the process quicker, easier and more comfortable for the patient. It can also be considerably cheaper because of the reduction in time and materials required.

Aside from the lower cost, a big advantage of All-on-4 is the reduced treatment time. Dentures can be affixed as soon as the implants have been placed, rather than the patient having to wait six months or more for healing as is the case with traditional implants. Usually temporary dentures are placed on the day of surgery and permanent ones are added a few months later.

The following table shows the key differences between dentures, regular implants and All-on-4:

All-on-4 Traditional implants Dentures
Placement Attached to 4-6 titanium implants in the jaw bone Attached to 8-10 titanium implants in the jaw bone Rest on the gums; may require adhesive
Eligibility Suitable for patients with bone loss May require a bone graft Suitable for most patients
Eating Fixed in place; act like natural teeth; few eating restrictions once healed Fixed in place; act like natural teeth; few eating restrictions once healed Can move when you chew; certain foods must be avoided
Longevity 20+ years 20+ years Will need to be replaced as the gums change shape (every 5 years on average)
Bone loss Implants help maintain the bone Implants help maintain the bone Continued bone loss is inevitable, causing the denture to loosen
Coverage in the mouth Artificial gums with minimal contact Crowns attached directly to existing gums Acrylic plate covers much of the gums and roof of the mouth
Appearance Like natural teeth; gum join hidden behind lips Like natural teeth; no artificial gum Like natural teeth; loss of bone may cause face to sag over time
Cleaning Cleaned like normal teeth Cleaned like normal teeth Must be removed for cleaning (usually overnight)

THE FITTING PROCEDURE

Initial consultation

Your first step in the procedure will be a consultation with your chosen dentist. During this consultation they will examine your mouth and do a CT scan. This scan lets them assess your suitability for implants. They can check your existing jaw bone density to determine precisely where the implants should be inserted.

Your dentist will also discuss alternative treatment options with you before you commit to anything.

If you are a suitable candidate and decide to go ahead, the next step will be dental impressions. These are sent to a lab where your new dental bridge is designed to fit and look just like natural teeth. You will be adviced to take a Cone Beam CT scan (CBCT).

Surgery

If you need to have teeth extracted before your implants are inserted, this can usually be done on the same day.

Implantologist will will anaesthetise you so you don’t feel any pain. After any remaining teeth are extracted your mouth will be thoroughly cleaned to remove any damaged tissue and bacteria.

The dentist drills two or more holes at the front of your jaw to hold the front implants. Two holes at the rear – one on each side – are angled to offer greater support to the rear of the bridge.

Once the implants are placed, your mouth is cleaned again and any incisions are stitched up. We use dissolvable stitches which disappear after a week or two.

Either the same day or the following day you’ll be fitted with your new teeth. If you wish our dentists can create a temporary overdenture at this stage which is then replaced a few months later. This is often made from resin – a lighter but less durable material – which puts less pressure on your implants while they heal.

Aftercare

Patients usually experience some bruising, swelling and general discomfort in the days after their surgery. You’ll probably want to take a couple of days off work to recover fully and get used to your new teeth.

Your dentist will advise you on the type of foods you can and cannot eat in the months after your treatment. For the first few months you’ll probably have to stick to very soft foods so you don’t disturb the process of the implants fusing with your bone. You might also be advised to avoid things like smoking and heavy exercise for a while.

These implants are cleaned just like your normal teeth – by brushing once a day. Your dentist will also show you how to floss with special tools. You might want to invest in a water flosser with special attachments designed to clean around implants.

Final checks and fitting

6-9 months after surgery your implants should be ready to support a permanent overdenture. This is usually made from porcelain or some other durable and high-quality material. If you look after your new teeth carefully, they should last for more than twenty years. You’ll need to return to dentist for regular checkups and maintenance.

What are All On 4, All On 6 And All On 8 Implant Systems

What are All On 4, All On 6 And All On 8 Implant Systems

If you have lost all teeth you are using dentures or if most of your teeth are lost and the ones which are left are either not very firm or ailing then you have options of these implant systems. These implant systems reduce the number of implants required to completely fill your mouth with either 12 or 14 new teeth in each jaw (depending on your individual condition).  This lesser number of implant requirement significantly lowers down the overall cost, hence these systems are quite popular.

All-On-4, All-On-6, and All-On-8 are titles of three dental implant options, each of which serve to completely reconstruct a patient’s smile. You may be wondering what the differences are among these three options, so we’ll help make that clear.

The “4, 6, and 8” represent the number of implants that will be inserted into the jawbone. How do we determine which option is right for you? We use CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) to gather the most precise and accurate reading of your specific bone structure. The quality, volume, and quantity of your bone is determined through our 3-D imaging, and thoroughly studied by the doctor.

CBCT  (3-D Imaging of the jaw)

Patient’s often wonder the All-On-Four is a better procedure than the All-On-6 or All-On-8. The answer is no. There is no better procedure than another; we are just cautious in assigning you the correct procedure according to what your 3-D image presents. To further explain, we are more apt to advise an All-On-8 for a patient with a more narrow, less sustainable jawbone. Why? Because as you may have gathered, an increased number of implants means an increased amount of stability. When a healthy, substantial jawbone is present, an All-On-4 is most often the prescribed procedure.

We then take our consensus, and use the 3-D images to pre-manufacture your teeth and pre-perform the procedure itself.  This process will benefit you in many ways. Not only will it ensure the strength and longevity of your smile, but it will also allow you to go home with your new smile the same day you come in.

Are you wondering what a good candidate for an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure looks like? Typically, patients who present a significant amount of tooth loss or decay are considered to be ideal All-On-4, 6, or 8 candidates. In addition, any patients who suffers from Periodontal Disease and/or other forms of gum disease are likely to be considered for this procedure.

We like to make it a point to assure our patients that they are doing the best thing for their smile and their overall health by taking advantage of one of these dental implant procedures. Often times, a patient with enough teeth to get by will hesitate to come in for a procedure like this. It is important, however, to note that the reason for tooth loss or decay is often the result of Periodontal Disease or some underlying issue.

This could be detrimental to a person’s oral health and general well being. Undergoing an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure is a guarantee that the patient will get as close to authentic, healthy teeth as they are ever going to get. When there is tooth loss or decay, our expertise combined with these specific implants will allow the patient to obtain the same level of strength and stability as they would have with natural teeth.

Don’t hesitate any longer. We are the best in implant dentistry and we are confident that you will leave here wondering why you didn’t come in sooner!

Considering Dental Tourism – 6 Risks to Look Out for

Dental tourism involves flying overseas to have expensive dental procedures completed for a cheaper cost, giving a vacation while saving money. Sound too good to be true? It is. If you are considering participating in dental tourism, first consider some of the risks that accompany it.

Best Dentist Cancun

1: Health and Safety Guidelines
While several countries practice similar health and safety guidelines as the U.S., some do not. OSAP (Organization for Safety and Aseptic Procedures) says that “the use of fresh gloves, sterile instruments and safe water is not standard practice in all countries.”

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles : India follows OSAP guidelines and Center for dental Implants & Esthetics maintains stringent infection control in all its centers. All the operatories are covered and separate from other areas of the operations. Shoe covers are mandatory for both patients and operating staff. Instruments are sterilized using in-house autoclave. All pre-surgery precautions is taken and  medical history of patient is  looked into.

2: Something Going Wrong
If something goes wrong during a dental surgery, is the dentist qualified to treat it? Not all countries have the same emergency care as we do, and if the dentist can’t rectify an emergency then you are in a world of trouble in an unfamiliar country.

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles :  Our centers are headed by a senior consultants with years of experience in managing any emergency situation. In case of any medical emergency during any procedure our International Patient Center is close to 5 big medical hospital where emergency can be managed. 

3: Material Quality
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulates dental drugs and instruments in the U.S. However, other countries might not have the same regulations. You could come home with a faulty implant or dentures that break after a week of use. That isn’t the type of cheap most people go for in dental tourism

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles : We use FDA approved drugs and  Dental Implants only. Dental Implants are prescribed basis the situation of patient rather than cost of the implants.

4: Procedure Time
A shorter treatment period is a common practice in dental tourism. Though while this sounds good, it actually isn’t. When procedures are compressed into shorter segments, they don’t allow the same amount of recovery time needed which can result in additional problems.

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles : We do not cut corners and usually let our patients visit twice for implants and follow the recommended procedural guideline and timelines. We focus on outcome rather than compressing procedure lest it leads to complications. Our patients are given written treatment plan with timelines.

5: Communication Problems
Chances are that you and your dentist speak the same language. In dental tourism, you might not have this luxury. Even if you have a translator available, there are so many nuances of language that you may be telling the dentist something different that what you mean.

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles : All our dentist and staff is able to speak near native English. English was medium of  education for all our doctors from K-12 to Post Graduate level Dental Degree. There experience of dealing with International patients from US, UK, Australia and Middle East has given them edge to understand nuances of language also.

6: Dental Qualifications
Education standards differ widely across countries. U.S. dentist spend many years gaining qualifications necessary to help their patients. Some countries don’t have as high of a bar set for their dentist’s education. You don’t want to have a dentist lacking in experience and knowledge trying to perform complex surgery on your mouth.

How Dental Trip 2 India Handles : Center for Dental Implants & Esthetics employs only Dentist with Master level education. Indian education system is widely acclaimed. In terms of experience all our dentist have worked under government health projects which gives them deep exposure and expertise.

Secrets of Finding Best Implants Dentist 

Secrets of Finding Best Implants Dentist

Best Implants Dentist 

Finding a good dentist can be quite unnerving. Pin pointing the individual with the right qualifications and can be trusted with your family’s dental health is hectic and more often than not, your search will bear no fruits. In India today every dental center advertises it-selves as an implant center and many dentist claiming them selves as implantologists So, what are the secrets of finding a implants dentist that you can trust?

Very little room for error

Your family’s dental health is too precious for you to hire any dentist out there. There room for error in dentistry is so small that you should settle for nothing but the absolute best. There are very many inexperienced and rogue dentists on the prowl and they are responsible for all the dental horror stories the media broadcasts from time to time.

Modern dentistry involves complicated procedures and equipment which unqualified and inexperienced dentists can’t handle. New treatment options such as dental implants and braces are complex and without proper training and dexterity, a dentist can’t competently handle modern dentistry.

If you are in the market for a dental implants dentist you can trust, here are secrets to finding a dentist you can trust;

1. Go online

One of the most powerful tools we have nowadays that we can use to narrow down our searches and find the services and products we need is the search engine. Go online today and search for the nearest dentists near you. Include the services you need which in this case would be implants this will make the search more successful.

Proceed to check out their websites and read the online reviews their previous clients have provided. Reviews can be misleading though because there have been claims in the past of people paying people to write positive reviews about their services. The internet is a good place to start though.

2. Ask around

Finding a dentist you can trust sometimes takes simple consulting. Consult the people you know- friends, family and workmates and they will give you leads. They will not only help you understand how to approach potential targets but will provide leads and referrals.

If their current dentists are good enough and they trust them, why shouldn’t you? You should however be careful to opt for a dentist that caters for all your family’s dental needs and shouldn’t fall blindly for a dentist because your friend recommended him or her.

3.Talk to your general dentist

Don’t shy away from asking for advice from your regular dentist when looking for a new implants dentist you can trust. If anything, your dentist will provide insights on what to look out for when hunting for a good dentist- it takes one to know another they say.

A good  dentist will even provide referrals and give you leads which will help you get a dental implants dentist near you. Dentist normally have very good connections and they will more often than not have a contact in every city and this would be a good starting point for you.

4.Knock on some doors

Once you have collected information on a number of potential candidates, it is time to knock on some doors and analyze the situation on the ground. Schedule meetings with prospective dentists and get to know them well.

During the meeting, inquire about their qualifications, scope of services and their record. Take time to interact with the prospective dentist to judge how fit they are for you and your family. This is also a good time to look around their office and check out the state of equipment. You ideally want a well-equipped office with a serene environment and receptive staff.

5.Consult your family before making the big decision

Choosing a dentist is a personal decision but your family needs to be involved as well. Talk to your family about the dentist you feel was the most appropriate and get their views on the same. This is why it is wise to go hunting with at least one member of your family.

The search for an appropriate dentist for implants and other treatment options might take time but it is worth all the wait in the end. Your dental health is too precious for you to rush. Take time and hire an individual you can trust.

6.Look  for a specialist

When you are searching for best implants dentist look out not only name and reference but also education and training of the implant dentist. Implants are new technology so you will find younger dentist active in this. A masters qualification like MDS is absolute must, avoid someone with a certificate course of a few days or months. Clinics which  specialize in dental implants are your best bet, because usually dental implants are a team effort a good prosthodontist, an oral surgeon or a gum specialist make this team.

Most Dental Implants Specialists will offer consultation at no cost, so feel free to visit as many specialist as possible. Always avoid who claim to bring in a specialist on-call, an in-house specialist will have more responsibility towards the success rather than a visiting specialist.

All-on-4 Patient Review (Australian lady from Texas)

Following is a review by one of our patient Ms. Janice Mauro from Katy, TX USA. Center for Dental Implants & Esthetics and staff would like to thank Ms. Mauro for trusting us for this critical all-on-4 procedure and wish her bright smiles this new year 2018.

Janice Before All-on-4
Janice Before Dentures

Well everything was a challenge for me when it comes to teeth perhaps its hereditary. I was wearing dentures for 4 years now and I have changed 2 sets of upper arch for some reason either gums would change shape or whatever, dentures would ill-fit after half a year. Decided to look for a permanent solution but the investment was eye watering both in US and even in Australia. Most of my peers back in Australia were flying abroad for dental work and off late India was a preferred destination.
I started my search right here at realself and found a review about Center for dental Implants & esthetics – I was skeptic initially looking at the young doctors team. I started my discussion, had skype sessions and phone calls with them. Shared my pictures, radiographs, finally when got the suggested treatment plan, I was convinced.
September 11th was my first visit to one of their center in Gurgaon, its part of capital city Delhi but more modern in every sense, I must say I was not expecting this, the city although crowded like every other place in India, has good infrastructure is much cleaner. I stayed close to the Center which is again near a big hospital and you have a lot of foreign patients in the area, the whole street has hospitals like the two women’s hospital I visited for general check arranged by Center for dental implants team.
My final radiographs were taken and explained about the procedure in-person by Dr Joe (as they call her – she is a young lady in early 30s perhaps), There I learnt why it is important to have right placement for implants – right alignment of teeth in terms of direction, bite and chewing efficiency. They used a computer aided surgical guide for implant placement for accuracy and precision. I chose Nobel Biocare although they have less costlier options also but I wanted the best and also doctor suggested that Nobel biocare results with people my age.
Once I was back in Houston, I kept in touch with Dr Joe. For the second visit on 15th Dec, I had my husband also with me, he wanted a prostrate check-up done at Artemis Hospital. Everything went on as planned. One radiograph to confirm implants had integrated with the bone, measurement was taken and we were ready for the new CERAMIC teeth. Dr Joe is prosthetics experts that actually helped in getting right set of crowns, almost like my natural teeth, I had been missing.
About the dental office – its the cleanest that I have ever seen, newly built, this is their second office in Gurgaon. They do take care of contamination and sterilization, I was impressed the moment I went inside the operation area.
Center gave us a free pick & drop from the airport to hotel. In my opinion since they are specialist implant center, they are a better option for implants. From ill-fitting dentures to implants has been a great journey. I was skeptic re surgery for implant but again it is not very painful, you remain on antibiotics for 5 days and pain killers for a couple of days but its bearable.
I was waiting to write this – just wanted to see the crowns how they come up, they are nice.

Rating Dr Joeti

She is knowledgeable especially with implants and implants placement. They measure and plan everything, I used to think it’s only with with folks here in US. Her treatment planning and surgical accuracy is something I would like to highlight, teeth look perfectly aligned and natural. Thank you Dr. Joe

In theory, dental implants can last for a lifetime but it becomes possible because of a number of factors. It was from mid-1960’s, that dental implants were being for replacing missing teeth. However, from the past few years, they are being largely used. Dental Implant is a safe and a convention option to get natural-looking teeth. It can be used for supporting crowns for the replacement of single missing teeth, for dentures and for supporting bridges that involves restoration of a large span of missing teeth.

Components of Dental Implants

A dental implant is done in 2 parts- the actual implant and the dental crown.

  1. The actual implant (Eternal roots) is fixed in the jawbone, like the tooth root.
  2. The dental crown (Enduring Crowns) is the visible portion of the dental implant.

Need of Dental Implants

Dental implants are  quite advantageous in comparison to dentures, crowns and bridges:

  • The feel and appearance of implants are natural.
  • They function in the similar manner as natural teeth. One experience no difficulty in cleaning the teeth or while eating.
  • If adjacent teeth are healthy, they do not need to be filled as supports to the missing teeth or tooth. Thus, the need of root fillings becomes less.
  • With the help of dental implants, a strong grip can be given to removable dentures.
  • In the case of dental implants, no special glue is required for holding false teeth in the required place.
  • With dental implants, the natural process of bone renewal is stimulated, helping in a good appearance of the face as well as the restored teeth.

Candidate of Dental Implant

This procedure is appropriate for anyone with one or more missing teeth and wishes to improve his chewing ability and physical appearance. However,

  • It is important that the bone tissue of the patient should be developed fully.
  • The patient should be 18 years of age or more.
  • If you are thinking about implants, your mouth should be in a healthy condition, with no gum disease or untreated tooth decay. These conditions may lead to dental implant failure or development of an infection.
  • The dentist offers this treatment to those who have a healthy oral hygiene.

When are dental implants not suitable?

Dental implants might not be a suitable option in the following conditions:

  • If the jaw line is not sufficiently thick for the accommodation of implants, due to this bone grafting becomes impossible.
  • If a patient has the problem of unrestrained diabetes and untreated periodontitis, implants cannot be done because of fear of infection and slow healing.
  • Dental implants cannot be done in people with blood clotting problems and some bone diseases, any kind of a deficiency in the immune system, drug abuse and systemic illnesses.
  • People who smoke, their efficiency of healing becomes lower and they become more likely a candidate of a failed dental implant.

How long do Dental Implants last?

It is no exaggeration if one says that dental implants can last forever. But it is extremely necessary that a person should be healthy and have great bones. If a patient has a good oral hygiene, his implants will surely last for a lifetime. Today, dental implants are the most successful in the cases of tooth replacement options. You must continue, brush, floss and use of dental water jet. One just needs to take proper care of their implants. Regular dental check-ups are also necessary. Although they can be called a permanent restoration but the success of dental implants depends on several factors:

  1. A professional and highly-qualified Dentist

This is one of the most important factors for the longevity of your dental implant. The dentist who has performed the procedure plays an important part. He should be the one who is clear about the main idea of neuromuscular dentistry and how they can help his patient.

  1. Superior materials

Although the basics of a dental implant surgery have been the same for decades but superior materials are now being used by the dentists. Mainly, ceramic or a metal or a combination-type of an implant us put in the hollow bone space, below the gum line. An abutment or a post protrudes out and gets the prosthesis, both in the case of a crown or a bridge. All these changes are a result of technological advancements.

  1. An improved match

Because of advancement in technology, Titanium implants are chemically treated for improving their compatibility with the living tissue and faster osseo-integration (bone formation around the implants). For a good replacement and fitting along with the other teeth, Computer Assisted Design (CAD) is now used.

  1. Are dental implants for you

A dental implant is a good option, but you need to be sure is this a perfect treatment for you. This procedure is not for people with gum disease, with smoking problem and the ones who are on heavy medication.

Risk Factors For Dental Implant Failure

If there has been no problem in the healing process after a dental implant, the most probable reason of the failure of a dental implant becomes an insufficient oral hygiene. If one will not clean the tooth or teeth properly, there will be bacteria build-up on the surface of the implant, leading to inflammation of the mucous membrane that surrounds the implant – mucositis. If this condition is left untreated, this can lead to an even more dangerous condition of peri-implantitis. In this situation, there is inflammation as well as bone loss around the implant finally leading to the implants become loose. Other two risk factors include a poorly aligned bite and trauma to the tooth or jaw.

Conclusion

It is clear that dental implants can be the best thing today as far as replacement of a missing tooth or teeth is concerned. But one just needs to be a little careful about his oral hygiene habits after the procedure to make it a success. In recent years, India has become one of the most sought-after for this procedure. Dental Implant cost in India, in comparison to the Western countries is quite affordable. Patients from all around the world visit to get the best of medical facilities at lower rates.

5 Ways to Replace a Missing Tooth

Ways to Replace a Missing Tooth

Ways to replace missing teeth

  1. Removable Partial Denture

    It can be very embarrassing when missing front teeth. A removable partial denture, which is worn during the day, can replace one or many missing teeth.  Sometimes a partial denture may need metal clasps to help it stay in the mouth.  Unfortunately, these metal clasps may be visible when speaking or smiling.  Another disadvantage of a removable partial denture is that they can move a little when speaking or eating, which can be uncomfortable.  We recommend taking them out at night and soaking them in a cleaning solution.  With a partial denture there is no need to file down any teeth, and this option is the most economical.  A full denture can replace all missing teeth.

  2. Temporary Denture

    A temporary denture is a short term solution for a missing tooth. We call it a “flipper” because it flips in and out easily.  This is used when the tooth will be restored in the future with a bridge or an implant, but we are waiting for the site to heal.  These are much like a removable partial denture, but usually less sturdy, less bulky, and less expensive.  We do not alter surrounding teeth when we make a flipper.

  3. Bridge

    A bridge is an option when there are teeth on either side of the missing tooth. A bridge is a fixed solution that stays cemented in the mouth and does not come out.  This method involves cutting down the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to be able to connect them together.  We recommend floss threaders, which slide under the bridge, to keep it clean.  The disadvantages for bridges are cutting down teeth that might be perfectly healthy, and sometimes bridges in the lower jaw do not last as long since the jaw flexes and the unbendable bridge can spring a leak on one side or the other that allows for decay or bacteria to seep in.  Sometimes the teeth next to the gap need a filling or a crown and this method can kill two birds with one stone; filling the gap and fixing the adjacent tooth at the same time.  A bridge can replace one or two missing teeth easily, and sometimes more if there is enough support.

  4. Dental Implant

    An implant is a great way to replace a missing tooth. This solution feels and acts the most like a natural tooth when chewing, brushing or smiling.  The implant replaces the actual root of the missing tooth and heals in the bone for several months.  We then place an abutment, to which a crown will be cemented.  A major advantage is no need to alter any other teeth when placing an implant.  An implant is a great solution for a single missing tooth, and even more implants can replace many missing teeth.  When smiling or talking there is no way to tell the difference between an implant and a natural tooth.

  5. Do Nothing

    One of the worst ways to replace a missing tooth.  There is always the option to do nothing. When a tooth is removed, the bone melts away and the other teeth in the area will shift to fill the gap.  This can sometimes create a difficult place to clean and lead to other problems like bone loss or decay around the existing teeth.
