DENTAL IMPLANTS

It is common sense that the smile is the prettiest and the most important feature of the face. so, losing one of your teeth (or more) can be a real problem causing you to feel embarrassed and less confident
Our qualified team which holds the best and most qualified doctors will help you get your beautiful smile back through a procedure called teeth implants.

About the procedure

The dentist will place a metal screwlike post in the place where the damaged tooth was and then attach it to an artificial tooth that looks and functions just like the real ones.
How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of the jawbone.
Dental implants can significantly improve the quality of life and the health of a person who needs them like Restoring the ability to chew, Helping keep the jawbone from shrinking due to bone loss, Restoring cosmetic appearance, and a lot more.

Before the procedure

First of all, the dentist will take a complete dental and medical evaluation (maybe a dental X-ray or CT is required) to establish a plan for your condition.

The instruction before the operation may vary depending on the kind of anesthesia you’ll go under. For example, if the anesthesia is local, you can have a healthy breakfast on the morning of the surgery, but if it is local anesthesia, you should fast for 12 hours before the surgery.

Your dentist might prescribe you antibiotics before the surgery if needed.

You might have to quit or reduce smoking as it lowers the success of dental implants because it can slow healing.

After the procedure

After any of the minor operations, (Whether you have dental implant surgery in one stage or multiple stages,) you might have bruising, pain, minor bleeding and swelling of the gums and face. 

After each stage of surgery, you may need to eat soft foods while the surgical site heals. Typically, your surgeon will use stitches that dissolve on their own. If your stitches aren’t self-dissolving, your doctor removes them.

You may need pain medications or antibiotics after dental implant surgery.
No special care is required for a dental implant. You will probably be advised to keep your natural and artificial teeth clean by brushing and flossing and having regular dental check-ups.

During the procedure

the procedure is done in two parts:
The first one (which is done under local anesthesia) is to put the implant’s post in the jawbone and then stitch the gum above it. (If your jawbone is too thin you might need a bone graft before starting)
Then you’ll have to wait for 3 to 8 months until the bone ingrowth into the metal post (this process is called osseointegration) in the meanwhile a denture can be placed for appearance.
The second part is to put the “abutment” which will hold the crown eventually (also usually under local anesthesia)
After your gum is healed the crowns (artificial teeth) can be placed. And here you can choose whether you want it to be removable or fixed.
During this process, you might need to take pain relievers and antibiotics as well as eat soft food while the treated site heals.
Sometimes the osseointegration doesn’t succeed, in this case, the post will be removed and the procedure will be repeated after a few months.

Dental Implants Techniques

There are two techniques of teeth implants: endosteal implant and subperiosteal implant
The main difference is that the endosteal implants are placed directly into the jaw bone “inside the bone”, whereas in subperiosteal implants they are placed under the gum “on top of the bone”.
Endosteal implants are more commonly used because they provide a better long-lasting result. Yet they require a good amount of bone density for insertion. So, if the patient doesn’t have enough healthy jawbones, then the suitable choice would be the subperiosteal implants.
