This is usually done by dentist not performing dental implants. In absence of a thorough investigation it is difficult to rule out dental implants just on the basis of bone size.

Anybody can be a candidate for a dental implant. Some patients might not have enough bone to get an implant but it is possible with bone grafting or altering your existing bone. This adds an additional step to the procedure but it is perfectly doable.

We also recommend a digital x-ray (lower radiation to you) or 3D x-ray (CT scan) to measure how much bone is present or missing.

You will be given a treatment plan by the Center for Dental Implants & Esthetics. This treatment plan will be drawn up by our panel of doctors and approved by the Chief Surgeon. Responsibility of the procedure and expected outcome lies with the Chief Surgeon.

Our dental implant success rate is 99% percent for both the implantologist. Implants is always a team work hence we would like to believe its our team’s success.

The single most important reason for failure is not adhering to post surgery precautions, like smoking right after the surgery, not maintaining dental hygiene around the surgery area, not taking medication as directed. There also have been cases of implant failures like implant not getting fused with the bone properly, but with proper precaution these can be minimized.

Stages of dental implants

Visit – 01

First Appointment
This consists of a consultation. During this essential dental x-rays are obtained and the area where implants will be placed is evaluated to make sure that the quality of the bone is good and quantity of the surrounding bone is sufficient to support an implant.  A diagnostic impression is also taken.

Second Appointment

The implant is placed in the jaw bone and allowed to heal and incorporate with the surrounding bone. The time it takes for a dental implant to integrate with the hard tissues varies between 3-5 months.  Some of the main factors that can affect healing include the location of placement, general health of the patient, quality of bone , health of the surrounding area where implant is placed, type of dental implant used, and oral hygiene of the individual. All these factors can determine how fast and how well the implant will integrate.  After a dental implant is placed it can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months before the final restoration is completed.  Implant placement is completed with just local anesthesia and the whole procedure is performed under sterile conditions.
