Not all patients are good candidates for Denture Treatment. Your implantologist will be taking your case history, checking for medical conditions if any, doing the clinical examination, and then sending you for 3D CBCT to access the bone condition. Once all the parameters are normal, the implantologist will advise you for an artificial teeth Treatment.
The procedure for implant placement involves minor surgery. The implantologist will first inject you the local anesthesia so that the area of Dentures is absolutely numb. Then the gingival flap is reflected in the area where the implant is to be placed. This is followed by drilling and placement of suitable size Partial Teeth. Implantologist might place the bone grafts if required. The implant site is then sutured. Dressings need to be done every 2 days and suture removal is scheduled after a week.
After this, we wait for 3 months for Dentures to osseointegrate, and then an abutment is placed on dental implant followed by placement of the prosthesis. In this way, the implant procedure is ideally completed in 3 months. However early loading of the implant is also done in some cases.
The dental implant procedure is always done under antibiotic coverage. You will be given painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs post-implant surgery. There may be a slight discomfort, swelling, and pain for 3 days post-surgery. Precautions taken during treatment are with respect to diet and oral hygiene. The patient needs to avoid eating anything hot & spicy. Also needs to use proper oral hygiene aids for maintenance.
Earlier there was an age barrier for artificial teeth but nowadays if your bone condition is healthy and there is no medical condition then you are a good candidate for an implant.
