What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental Implant is a titanium screw (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can. After the placement of the Implant your dentist will have to design and place a Dental Crown which is the tooth like structure acting as your natural tooth. The crown is attached to the Dental Implant with an " Implant Abutment" which is usually welded with the Implant and bonded/screwed to the Dental Crown. This reinforces the Dental Implant structure to act like a natural tooth.


What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

  • Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

  • Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

  • Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

  • Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.

  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. When placed by an experienced Dentist and taking good care, many implants last a lifetime.

  • Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

What is the cost of Dental Implants in India?

The average rate of Dental Implants vary between INR 25,000 to INR 50,000 depending on the Type of Crown & Brand of Implants used as well as the Experience of your Dental Surgeon.

He has a collective experience of 27 years in Implant Dentistry, and has personally administered more than 9000 Dental Implants.

What is the guarantee of success of a Dental Implant?

Dental Implants are just another medical device; one has to remember that just as no medical implant has a 100% success rate, Dental Implants should not be expected to perform any differently. Hence no guarantee or warranty regarding success of treatment can be made and that failure can occur.

However, When placed by an Experienced & Well trained Implant surgeon following proper protocols, a Dental Implant may last lifetime ( given that other medical parameters stay under control).
