What Are Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants are metallic screws that are inserted in your bone. They replace your natural tooth roots.
  • Unlike dentures, which rest on the bone, dental implants are fixed and stable.
  • After implant placement, the bone and the implants fuse with each other in a process called “osseointegration.”
  • Tooth implants minimize bone loss in the lower and upper jaw.[1]American Academy of Implant Dentistry

  • Just like dentures, dental implant procedures allow the immediate function of teeth.

Several Teeth Replacement

When several teeth are missing, at least 2 implants will be inserted in your bone, on top of which a dental bridge is fitted.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Full-mouth reconstruction procedures replace all the missing or damaged teeth in your mouth. All-on-4, All-on-6, and All-on-8 are popular full mouth rehab procedures.

FAQs on Dental Implants

1. Does an implant feel like a natural tooth?

The feel of the implant will be a little different since it doesn’t have the cushioning layer as natural teeth do. Many patients have reported they didn’t even notice the presence of implants after some time.

Dental Implant X-Ray

A natural tooth has a crown (the part you see in your mouth) and a root (which lies inside the jawbone).

In a dental implant, the root is replaced by the implant. This part is made of titanium which is a highly biocompatible material.

A Porcelain or Zirconia crown replaces the exposed part.

The crown has the same shade as that of the adjacent teeth, which makes it hard to notice.

So, as far as aesthetics are concerned, the implant will look exactly like a natural tooth.

2. When can I go to work after implant surgery?

If you take proper care of your implants as directed by your dentist, you can join your work back the next day after surgery. Pain and discomfort will last for a few days and can be handled with the medication prescribed.

As per the situation, your dentist may recommend you to stay back for a few days after the surgery to make sure any complications are attended to timely.

3. How long will dental implants last?

With proper maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. In a 10-year follow-up, dental implants showed a survival rate of 94.6%. [2]PubMed – NCBI
Evaluation of Survival and Success Rates of Dental Implants
“All of the studies reported…”
View in Article

Patient’s overall health and bone quality are essential factors that determine implant survival.

Besides these, diet, cleaning practices, and habits like smoking, play a vital role in the longevity of the implants.

The first few weeks are the most important. This is the time during which the implant fuses with the bone.

4. How long will the implant procedure take?

The implant procedure is usually completed in 2-3 visits.

Visit 1:

It may take 5-12 days for implant placement. A temporary prosthesis (artificial teeth) will be placed which allows you to eat normally.

Visit 2:

This visit is scheduled 3-6 months after the first visit. It may take up to 5 days for porcelain teeth/denture placement.

Another visit may be required if you need a bone graft surgery.

5. What prerequisite procedures are required before the implant surgery?

Pre-surgery procedures increase the success rate of dental implants. These are:

Bone graft surgery: If you do not have sufficient bone to support the implants, bone graft surgery maybe done. It may take 4-6 months for the new bone to form and be ready for implants.

Tooth extraction: You may need tooth extraction if you go for full mouth restoration procedures. Extraction is done to remove damaged teeth and replace them with artificial teeth.

In addition, you may need procedures like scaling, RCT, and filling. They reduce the chance of infection after surgery.

6. Will I require bone grafting?

Bone grafting is needed in patients with poor bone quality in the jaw. Bone grafting uses the natural or artificial bone to fill up an area with bone loss.

It takes 4-6 months for the bone to form a structure strong enough to support the implant.

Bone grafting before All-on-6 and 8 implants

Bone graft surgery can be avoided in some cases with an All-on-four implant procedure.

7. Can I smoke before and after the dental implant oral surgery?

Smoking is one of the main reasons for implant failure. Nicotine decreases the blood supply to the area where the nutrients and oxygen from the blood are required.

Even before getting implants, smoking can adversely affect your oral health. You will be given the option of implants only if you are a good candidate.

According to a research study, the success rate of implants in a smoker is reduced in comparison with non-smokers.[3]PubMed – NCBI

8. Is there a warranty on dental implants in Mexico?

Yes. Some dentists in Mexico give a 2-5 year warranty for their work. Those who smoke might not be eligible for it. To know more about the warranty, you can contact your MTC case manager.

9. Does it hurt to get dental implants?

No. This is one of the biggest myths about dental work.

Appropriate measures are taken so that the patient does not feel any pain.

Anesthesia is given either locally or generally throughout the body. This will make the area numb, and you will not feel anything.

Swelling and pain are common for 72 hours after surgery. You will be given suitable medication to reduce the swelling and pain.

If the pain or swelling persists, you should contact your dentist to rule out any complications.

10. How is an implant better than a dental bridge?

dental implant vs bridge

A bridge is a treatment option for missing teeth. Here the two adjacent teeth are capped, and a pontic (artificial tooth) is attached in the middle.

This means that your prosthesis is supported on both sides by two natural teeth. The disadvantage of this method is that the two natural teeth will need to be trimmed to quite an extent to accommodate the crowns.

In an implant procedure, however, only the space left behind by the lost tooth is used. An implant is embedded in the bone, and a crown is placed over it. This is done without involving the adjacent teeth at all.
