The outstanding advantages of Dental Implant service

Dental Implant is a method that has been trusted and chosen by many customers. One of the advantages of Implants is that the porcelain crown has the same aesthetic as natural teeth and ensures the ability to chew as usual. 

Advantages of Dental Implants

The Implant method has many outstanding advantages over traditional tooth restoration methods.

Dental Implants bring high aesthetics

Dental Implants bring very high aesthetics due to the perfect restoration of both the root and the crown.

The tooth root is replaced by an Implant post that functions like a real tooth root. The crown is a meticulously crafted porcelain tooth, giving patients a bright white tooth the same size as real teeth.

Implant teeth are durable and fixed

Implant posts are made of high-quality titanium, providing certainty for new teeth. In addition, the implant post is inserted deep into the jawbone so that it has a perfect connection with the jawbone, helping the Implant tooth root to be more fixed without being displaced during use.

Dental Implants improve chewing function

The absolutely preserved chewing function is an outstanding advantage of the Implant method. As the Implant has very high stability and strength, it can give customers a good chewing feeling.

Customers can freely consume a variety of foods according to their preferences without worrying about affecting the quality of dentures.

Implant teeth do not invade real teeth

The implant method only performs surgery on the implant post at the position of the lost tooth, without causing invasion or affecting the adjacent teeth.

This completely overcomes the disadvantages of other tooth restoration methods such as porcelain bridges. Because porcelain bridges need to grind down adjacent teeth, it is invasive and affects the durability and certainty of real teeth.

Implant surgery prevents bone loss

Jawbone loss, gum recession, and sunken cheeks are common in cases of long-term tooth loss or in the case of using porcelain bridges or removable dentures.

The reason is that traditional tooth restoration methods cannot restore the root of the tooth, leading to the loss of the jawbone over time.

Only the method of Dental Implant can minimize bone loss and gum recession because it restores the root of the tooth. Not only that, the implant also contributes to stimulating and helping the jawbone to develop better.

Long-lasting effect

Because the root part of the Implant tooth has a certain compatibility with the jawbone, it can bring a long-term dental restoration effect to the customer. If customers pay attention to how to take care of their teeth and avoid infection of the Implant post, they can prolong the time of using Implant teeth for life.

Disadvantages of Dental Implants

Despite being the optimal method of tooth restoration, there are still some disadvantages to Dental Implants as follows:

Not applicable to all patients

The dental Implant technique, despite being highly effective, is not applicable to all customers. The following cases are advised not to use Dental Implant service according to dentists:

  • People under 18 years old: The jawbone of people under 18 years old is still in the process of developing and most of them do not meet the requirements for Implant surgery.
  • The implant process is contraindicated for pregnant and lactating women. Because during the treatment, it is necessary to take X-rays, anesthetize, and use pain relievers, and anti-inflammatory drugs… All of these drugs have negative side effects on the baby.
  • Customers with underlying cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, or blood pressure need to consult a doctor. Normally, subjects with underlying diseases will be advised not to have Implants to avoid affecting their health.
  • Heavy smokers: cigarettes or stimulants not only adversely affect health but also make the Implant surgery process worse and take longer to heal. Therefore, people who are addicted to cigarettes and heavy stimulants need to consider carefully before Implanting.

Not applicable to all patients

Length of treatment 

Due to the need for surgical intervention, the treatment process is complicated, so the time of Dental Implant is much longer than other methods. A Dental Implant process often takes from 3 to 6 months.

High cost

Compared with other dental restoration methods, the cost of the Implant technique is much higher

How long does Implant placement take?

How long does it take to place an Implant is a question for many customers. The stage of Implant surgery is done quite quickly, only about 20-40 minutes for one post.

After that, customers need to wait from 3 to 6 months for the implant post to be fully compatible with the jawbone. Finally, when the Implant post has integrated with the jawbone, the dentist only needs to put the porcelain crown on the post to complete the Implant process.

Many dental facilities have applied modern Implant technologies that can shorten the time needed for the Implant post to integrate with the jawbone. However, depending on the patient’s specific oral case and the stability of the jawbone, the dentist will decide on the treatment time.

The procedure of Dental Implant method

The whole Implant procedure takes about 3-6 months to complete and needs to go through the following 5 steps:

Step 1: Visit and consult

Initially, the dentist will make a general examination, check the oral condition, the position of the missing teeth, and the stable condition of the jawbone,…

The dentist will then give advice on the appropriate treatment method, the advantages and disadvantages, and the cost of the method.

If the customer agrees with the treatment protocol outlined by the dentist, the customer is scheduled to have an Implant surgery.

Step 2: Implant surgery

Customers need to see the doctor on time for the implant procedure. The implant process is carried out in a closed, sterilized operating room.

First, the dentist cleans the patient’s teeth, anesthetizes the surgical site, and then surgically implants the post deep inside the jawbone.

The dentist performs temporary restorations of porcelain teeth on the Implant post to ensure aesthetics and ensure the ability to chew for patients.

Step 3: Rest and recover

After the Implant surgery, customers need to rest completely for 1-2 days to heal. Then take pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs… as prescribed by the doctor.

After the implant surgery, from 7 to 12 days, the customer needs to return to the dentist for re-examination and thread removal.

Step 4: Restoration of porcelain teeth

Implant posts need about 3 – 6 months to have a certain connection with the jawbone. At this time, the dentist needs to use a porcelain crown to cover the Implant post, and it will be able to completely restore the Implant tooth from the root to the crown.

Step 5: Re-examination

After the process of restoring lost teeth with Implant posts, customers still need to be regularly re-examined so that the doctor can check the status and the stability of the Implant post.

Please note that the above procedure only applies to ones with stable oral health. Some customers with angioplasty, and bone deficiency will need bone grafting to ensure stable jawbone density with enough depth and width for Dental Implant.

In other cases, if you have any dental diseases, they also need to be treated thoroughly before the process of Implanting teeth.

If you need sinus lifts, bone grafts, or other dental treatment, the time of Dental Implant process will be a few days or weeks longer.
