Various factors are considered when planning a dental implant surgery. These are: the number of implants required, type of implants, number of tooth crowns, type of tooth crowns, best locations in the jaw for the implants. Therefore, the doctor plans the surgery according to your jaw bone structure.
A complete dental implant surgery consists of 4 parts:
Visit a dental clinic for for a consultation. In this, the dentist will examine the mouth and then will take a 3D image (CBCT) or an X-Ray of the whole mouth. The dentist can give better estimate of the number of implants and cost of the treatment once he examines the images.
The 3D image of the mouth helps in deciding the best locations in the mouth to insert the implant. The dentist then prepares a device called “Stent” using the 3D image of the mouth. The stent helps in precise placement of the implants in the jaw bone. Therefore, very small cut is required in the gums to insert the implant in the jaw.
The 3D image also provides details if any additional procedure is required, like: bone graft and sinus lift surgery.
The 3D image also shows the path of main nerves and blood vessels in the mouth that must not be touched during the surgery.
Bone graft and sinus lift surgery is done on a part of the jaw if it has less bone to hold the implant. It adds artificial bone in the part of the jaw that holds the implant.
In this procedure, a tissue layer near the gums (sinus membrane) is lifted and the bone graft (artificial bone) is filled in the jaw. The implant is then inserted. The bone graft fuses with the jaw bone and becomes like a natural bone within a few weeks.
Implants Placement Surgery: In this surgery, implants are placed in the jaw. It takes 45-60 minutes to insert one implant. After the surgery, you can resume your daily work after 2-3 days. Tooth crown is not yet placed in this surgery because the bone needs time to heal completely.
Healing / Waiting Time: The healing / waiting time is of 2 months. A temporary acrylic tooth crown is placed over the implants as a temporary replacement of a permanently fixed tooth crown.
Second Visit: The second visit is of 3-4 days. In this, a fixed tooth crown is permanently placed over the implant. No healing time is required after this.
