 What are Implants?
 
Implants are the titanium screws which are fitted on the jaw bone in place of missing teeth to replace an artificial cap on it.

 What are the advantages of Implants?
 
The Advantage of Implants as compared to removable denture is that the removable loose denture can be fitted on the jaw bone & made fixed.

The Advantage of Implants as compared to fixed Bridges is that unlike fixed Bridges, we do not have to do cutting of healthy adjacent 2 teeth and we can directly fix the screw on the jaw bone in place of missing tooth gap & fix a cap & fill the missing tooth space.

 What is the Procedure for fixing Implants?
 
First the patients Dental Digital OPG (full mouth x-ray) is taken, the height and width of the jawbone are measured and accordingly the type of Implant (screw) to be used is selected.

Then a small hole is drilled on the gums & the jaw bone in place of missing tooth. The Implant is then put into that hole such as it is snuggly fitting.

The Implant is inserted to that height that the head of it, is up to the Gum level. This is left inside for approx 3 months to allow bone deposition surrounding the implant and thus causing complete adhesion of implant inside.
After 3 months, abutment is put on top & the Ceramic (porcelain) cap is fitted onto it.

This cap can now be used as a natural tooth except breaking anything hard with it.

 What are the conditions not indicated for Implants?
 
1) Medically compromised patients for any surgery.
2) Blood sugar (Diabetes) too high or too low.
3) Chronic Tobacco chewer & chronic smoker.
4) Any other oral condition not suitable for any surgical procedures.
5) Insufficient space available for placement of artifical cap.
6) Improper Occlusion (Biting Position).

 How much does it cost?
 
Itís slightly expensive as compared to Removable Dentures & Fixed caps & Bridges Cost varies from 15000 to 40000 depending on the type of implant used & the surgeonís technique & skills.
