Dental Implant

In Patna Dental Clinic the dental implants are metal posts or frames that are placed in the oral cavity. These are made up of titanium which is a non reactive material and is well accepted by body cells.

Need for Implants

Teeth play a vital role in the overall general health and social life of a person. So losing one’s teeth affects the quality of life to a great extent. The most basic being affected is nutrition and taste. Besides this, after loss of teeth the remaining bone also undergoes rapid degeneration.
A person’s social life is also affected to a great extent due to absence of teeth. While a beautiful smile fills you with confidence, lack of it diminishes it.

Treatment Options

There are various methods to replace the lost teeth :-

  •  In case of loss of single tooth, bridges can be used.
  •  When there is loss of more than one tooth then removable partial dentures can also be given.
  •  In case of absence of all teeth, complete dentures with or without implants can be given.
Advantages of Implants
  •  Implants are the most natural looking and stable replacements for lost teeth.
  •  No clasps or visible attachments are required.
  •  No cutting down of adjacent natural teeth is required.Since implants share the functional load during chewing, they contribute to maintaining the health of other teeth.
  •  Implants are ideal replacements for preserving the health of the remaining bone left after loss of teeth.
  •  They do not shift or slip like removable partial dentures or complete dentures.
  •  Nearly the same shade as natural tooth can be acquired.
  •  Provides a long term solution.

With all these benefits, implants are nearly ideal solutions for problems related to loss of teeth, thereby enhancing your confidence and giving you that smile back.

Types of Dental Implants
  •   Root Form : - These screw shaped implants resemble tooth roots in form. These are used when sufficient depth of bone is present.
  •   Plate Form : - These are wider in form and are used with narrow bone.
  •   Subperiosteal : - These are placed just beneath the gums and are used in case of advanced resorption of bone.
Procedure

Placement of implants is a procedure with minimal discomfort. The oral surgeon/implantologist gives anaesthesia, then exposes the bone by giving incision. The implant is placed inside the bone, the incision is then stitched back.
After this, it requires a healing period of about 3- 6 months. During this period, a process known as ‘osseointegration’ occurs in which bone cells adapt themselves around implant material.
After the healing period, the crown is then placed over the implant.

Bone Grafts for Implants

Implants can be placed even if the remaining bone is reduced in length and width. It may then require a procedure known as bone grafting .

Hybrid Implants

In Patna Dental Clinic the replacement of a missing tooth has advanced from removable dentures to fixed dentures and quite recently to dental implants. The need of sufficient bone around the fixture is critical for the success of the implant.
When there is insufficient bone to place a regular implant fixture, it is not possible to restore the tooth unless advanced surgeries are performed over a period of 6- 12 months.
A Hybrid dental implant was aimed to manage such situations where there is a insuffecient bone and immediate replacement is required, this implant system has the advantage of avoiding sinus lift, nerve damage and bone grafting.
A hybrid dental implant is a conjunction of a maxillofacial plate and screws with a regular implant body. These implants have emerged as an alternate to other dental implants when they cannot be placed or they fail to be accepted.

A Fixed prosthesis can be delivered immediately following the placement of a Hybrid Implant. This implant system and process is practiced by highly skilled surgeons and we have very few across the globe.

Indications

Hybrid implants are indicated in the following : -

  •  When there is no bone to place other dental implants
  •  When other alveolar implants are failed to be accepted
  •  If patient wants immediate replacement even in compromised bone
Advantages

The advantages of hybrid implants include : -

  •  No second surgery required
  •  No sinus lift
  •  No ridge split
  •  No need to wait for 3-6 month for osseointegration
  •  Immediate crown/cap can be placed
  •  Can be used in diabetics and smokers too

In Patna Dental Clinic the consultant at our clinic has successfully completed a Hybrid Impant case, which is the first in the state where the surgery was done soon after the extraction. A case where a normal dental implant would have not been a success unless done with a sinus lift and a waiting period of 1 year.
