Title: Overview of Dental Implant By Dr. Ajwani’s Family & Cosmetic Dental Centre Dentist in Pune

Overview of Dental Implant
What are Dental Implants?
  • A dental implant is a screw like anchor that is
    used as an artificial replacement for natural
    tooth roots. Made of materials that are
    compatible with the human body, such as titanium,
    implants have been used for decades in upper and
    lower jaws. By attaching to the jawbone and gum
    tissue, they provide a stable base for artificial
    replacement teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges
    and dentures.

  • Dental implants can be used to replace a single
    tooth or several teeth, or to support partial or
    full dentures. Implants and crowns remain inside
    the mouth and do not require any adhesives to
    hold them in place.

Dental Implant Procedure
  • Dental implant treatment generally takes several
    months and follows a three-step process.
  • Step 1
  • Your Smile approved dentist places the implant
    into the jaw then inserts a screw to prevent
    debris from entering. It will take 3 to 6 months
    for the implant to fuse with the jawbone, during
    which time the gum is secured over the implant.

  • Step 2
  • Upon returning to the dentist, the implant is
    uncovered and an extension called a post is
    attached. Once the gum tissue has healed around
    the post, the implant and post act as the
    foundation for the new tooth.
  • Step 3
  • Finally, the dentist makes a crown that best
    suits your natural teeth, considering factors
    including size, shape and color. Once completed,
    the crown is attached to the implant post and you
    can enjoy your beautiful new smile!

Types of Dental Implants
  • There are 3 different types of dental implants.
    Depending on your individual circumstances, your
    Smile approved dental professional will decide
    which kind is best suited to you.
  • Endosseous Implants
  • Cylinder or screw-shaped, endosseous implants
    are made of metal, ceramic or ceramic-coated
    metal and are placed within the jawbone.

  • Subperiosteal Implants
  • Subperiosteal implants consist of a metal
    framework that attaches on top of the jawbone but
    underneath the gum tissue.
  • Transosteal Implants
  • Transosteal implants are either a metal pin or
    a u-shaped frame that passes through the jawbone
    and the gum tissue into the mouth.

What is the Recovery Time for Dental Implants?
  • The recovery time for dental implants is
    dependent on the patient, and it differs from one
    individual to another.
  • Depending on your circumstances, the downtime
    could be a couple of days or a couple of weeks.
  • On average, it takes just a couple of days to
    feel back to normal. The complete healing of your
    jawbone and gum tissue takes approximately 3-6

Are Dental Implants Safe?
  • Dental implants have proven to be a safe and
    effective solution for replacing teeth for over
    30 years. Made from materials that work well with
    the human body, dental implants serve as a strong
    and safe foundation for replacement teeth.

Any Risks, Side Effects or Pain Involved?
  • Any risks and side effects are rare and easily
    treated. These can include
  • Infection
  • Injury or damage to other teeth or blood vessels
  • Nerve damage
  • Sinus problems if upper-jaw implants protrude
    into sinus cavities.
  • Although uncommon and usually minor, it is
    important to contact your Smile-approved dentist
    if you experience any of these side effects.
  • Once healed, dental implants should be painless
    and comfortable. Immediately after surgery,
    however, discomfort and mild pain is expected to
    last up to a week. Your dentist may prescribe you
    something for the pain and to avoid infection
    otherwise, over-the-counter painkillers can help
    to manage the pain.
