What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are cylinder shaped screw-like wedges, surgically placed in your jawbone, where they serve as the roots of missing teeth. Because the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants won't slip, make noise or cause bone damage the way fixed bridgework or dentures might. And the materials can't decay like your own teeth that support regular bridgework can.

What are its procedures?

Placing the dental implant

During surgery to place the dental implant, your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gum and expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone where the dental implant metal post will be placed. Since the post will serve as the tooth root, it's implanted deep into the bone, it might last from 0.5 hr to 2 hr depends on the number of implants planned to place.

At this point, you'll still have a gap where your tooth is missing. A type of partial, temporary denture can be placed for appearance, if needed. You can remove this denture for cleaning and while you sleep.

waiting for bone growth

Once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone, osseointegration (integration between the bone and the implant) begins. During this process, the jawbone grows into and unites with the surface of the dental implant. This process, which can take from 3 to 5 months, helps provide a solid base for your new artificial tooth — just as roots do for your natural teeth.


Placing the abutment

when the integration between the implant and the bone is complete, we will add the connector between the implant inside the jawbone and the crown or bridge that will be made.

Making the final restoration

the final artificial teeth which will appear in your mouth, it usually fixed ( non removable) made of zirconia, metal fused to porcelain, 

or at some cases removable (overdenture)

usually it takes from 1 - 2 weeks to be made, tried in, and fixed perfectly in your mouth.

What is an immediate loading implant?

the immediate loading implant is a type of implants where we can place the implant and attach the prosthesis at the same time with no need to wait long period  for the integration between the bone and the implant, 

the immediate loading implant is a new technology, but it has lots of limitations, and it is not recommended for all patients due to its short lifetime. 

How much could an implant cost?

The price of a dental implant determined by the implant manufacturer brand, the prosthesis, the need for bone grafting, and the surgeon experience, this is why its price varies from patient to patient,

usually a dental implant price will be around $300 - $600 bearing in mind all the factors mentioned.
