How are dental implant treatments done?
Having dental implant treatment is relatively straight-forward with today’s tooth implant systems materials and advancements in surgical techniques compiled over the past 50 years. Tooth replacement implant treatments is done in easy simple steps.
Dental implants treatments are general done in 2 stages.
- 1st stge : dental implant posts surgery
- 2nd stage : fitting of prostheses over implant posts
- Stage 1 – Visit 1: X-ray & Treatment Plan
Your dentist takes panoramic x-ray and sometimes a CT scan of your missing tooth bone area. Your dental implants options, benefits, risks and sedation options is discussed. On confirming your dental treatment plan, your implant surgery visit is arranged along with your sedation option.
- Stage 1 – Visit 2 : Dental Implant Sedation Preparation (Optional)
If opting for IV sedation or general anaesthesia (GA), additional preparatory steps by your dentist or anaesthesia doctor will be required on possible health checks and medication. If dental implant treatments is done under local anaesthesia (LA), there is no prerequisite steps.
- Stage 1 – Visit 2 : Dental Implant Post Surgery
During the actual implantpost surgery visit, your dentist or anaesthesialogist administers sedation. Thereafter, the tooth implant posts are placed into the jaw bone. Your gums are stitched and a healing cap is capped over the implant post.
- Stage 1 – Visit 3 : Check on Dental Implant Posts
After round 7 days after your implant post surgery, your dentist typically arranges a followup visit to check the implant and gums site. With sufficient healing, stitches over gums may be removed at this stage. The implant post is left to fuse with your jaw bone, called osseointegration, for about 2 to 6 months.
- Stage 2 – Visit 4 : Impression for Prosthese
After the osseointegration period, your dentist takes a panoramic x-ray to check that the tooth implant posts has properly healed with your jaw bone. When ready, your dentist unscrews the healing cap over your implant posts and places on an implant abutment. An tooth impression is taken to fabricate your prostheses or false teeth (crowns, bridge or dentures). The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where your new set of teeth is made.
- Stage 2 – Visit 5 : Fitting of Implant Prosthese
Upon delivery of the protheses, your dentist fits the false teeth over the implant posts. If the prosthese fits well, it is permamently glued or attached onto your implant posts. The prostheses may be adjusted with additional visits if the fit is not perfect prior to permamently securing over the implant posts.
- Stage 2 – Visit 6 : Checking and Maintenance of Prostheses
To ensure that your dental implant treatment is successful, your dentist may request a recall visit to check that the implant protheses is functioning well. Periodic visits may be required to check, clean and maintain your tooth implants to enable it to last over your life-time.
