A Dental Implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. In simple words Dental Implantology aims to insert the dental implants in jaw bones to replace the root of the tooth and its structure, once it has been dropped or has been extracted.
Until a few years ago the loss of one or more teeth entailed having to resort to a removable prosthesis, which was often uncomfortable and produced a deterioration in the quality of life of its user. The use of Dental Implant in Dental Solutions in Ashok Vihar is the most technological and modern method to correct the missing tooth/ teeth.
The implantology intervention
When the Dentist speaks of a dental implant, he refers to the insertion of a titanium screw into the bone of the jaw or jaw that is intended to replace the root of the missing tooth, resulting in a tooth that appears completely natural.
There are two elements that make up a dental implant: the screw (IMPLANT ) and the stump(ABUTMENT).
Depending on the type and quantity and quality of the bone, the implant screw can have variable diameters, lengths and shapes. As mentioned, the screw is inserted into the bone while the stump (abutment) acts as a hook for the dental prosthesis real, which is not part of the actual dental implant, but together with the implant elements provides the tooth.
Prevention and approach to intervention
The dental implant is a surgical intervention; therefore, it is essential that the patient reports to the dentist in Ashok Vihar all the possible health problems from which he suffers. Allergies to anesthetics or drugs must be communicated to the dentist who will provide the framework of alternative possibilities to the implant, or the type of dental implant that best suits the patient’s condition.
The first step, before planning the actual intervention, is the execution of a panoramic radiograph( OPG): it is necessary to highlight the type of bone and therefore give a first indication of the length, size and shape of the implant screw. Very often for a more thorough diagnosis and more complete planning, the dentist may request a CBCT.

There is no single method for inserting dental implants. In fact, transmucosal implantation and immediate post-extraction implantology go hand in hand with surgery.
The best-known method of dental implant in Ashok Viharis the surgical method which is used when the tooth has been missing for some time and therefore to insert the artificial root it is necessary to incise the gum. Transmucosal implantology, on the other hand, does not involve the gingival incision for tooth insertion. Regardless of the implant placement technique, they are usually expected 3-6 months before the restoration, that is, before placing the tooth on the implant. Sometimes, instead, an implant is performed immediately after tooth extraction, in this case we speak of post-extraction implants.
In recent years implantology has been enriched with new techniques, materials and methodologies that have improved the experience for the patient. Among the types of plant, it is possible to distinguish those with immediate load from those in two times.
Immediate loading implantology
For immediate load implantation, optimal bone quality is required. Once the implant is fixed, it is functionalized within 24 hours with the fixed prosthesis.
Implantology in two stages
However, the most widely used dental implant is the two-stage implant, that is the one in which at the first surgical time (insertion) a second surgical uncovering and prosthesis time follows, generally 3-6 months from the first.
Dental implants without bone
In the presence of a bone deficiency both on the upper dental arch and on the lower dental arch, the solutions are many, but certainly the most common interventions are the maxillary sinus elevation, bone regeneration or bone grafting.
The advantages of the dental implant
The benefits offered by fixed prosthesis on implants are numerous, first the opportunity to prevent the bone from shrinking and producing a change in the appearance of the face. Furthermore, a dental implantmeans that the neighbouring teeth do not have the possibility to move, making sure that they remain in place.
An implant, unlike a mobile prosthesis, provides an extra psychological security to those who possess it, because it gives the sensation of a natural dentition.
Taking care of your oral hygiene, for dental implants the duration is guaranteed for a very long period: the replacement of our implants free of charge is guaranteed for years.
Risks and contraindications
It is rarely possible to run into risks during dental implant. The first risk a patient may face is the failure to integrate the implant; that is, it may not merge with the bone, but without further complications.
There is also a minimal risk of infection, drastically reduced by the sterility procedures to which the instruments and materials used in the treatment are subjected.
Sometimes the inexperience of the dentist could produce lesions to the nerve that runs in the jaw: in these cases, the patient may experience disturbances, often temporary, in the sensitivity of the lower part of the face.
The risk of complications increases in smokers.
Is there a risk of rejection of the implants?
We immediately answer this frequent question with a no, it is not possible to have a rejection of the dental implant. The implants are produced in titanium, a biologically inert material, or that is accepted by the body, which is in fact used in many other types of medical interventions such as maxillofacial surgery.
Does the dental implant hurt? How long are healing times?
Any implant surgery does not disregard local anesthesia, therefore the fear of intraoperative pain is unfounded, while the normal discomfort, swelling or pain that can arise in the following days can be controlled with anti-inflammatories or painkillers.
Among the post-operative symptoms, the most common is pain during chewing, but if this were to continue it could be an indication of an infection.
What to eat after dental surgery?
Among the concerns and doubts of dental implant in Ashok Vihar there is also what it will be possible to eat in the following days. It is advisable not to eat hot food and to prefer soft consistencies, thus avoiding excessive chewing.
