Dental implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthesis (replacement teeth) that are made to match your natural teeth. They are manufactured from biologically neutral pure Titanium or titanium alloys, that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.
Types of Dental implants
There are two basic types of implants available at our dental clinic. In certain cases, conventional or immediate implants may be followed by immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediately loaded implants.
Conventional implants are applicable to almost anyone who is looking to replace one, multiple, all missing teeth with a permanent restoration solution.
Conventional implants are done in 2 stages normally in 2 trips about 3 to 6 months apart.
Conventional implants may be done for most types of bone conditions. If there is moderate or severe jaw bone loss, bone grafting may be recommended prior to dental implantation.
Immediate implants are also known as one day or same day implants.
This is the case whereby dental implants is placed during the same time after teeth are extracted. Crowns, bridge, dentures may or may not be placed on during same trip depending on whether immediate loaded implants may be done.
Immediate implants are normally recommended only for cases with good jaw bone conditions.
Immediate Loaded Implants
Immediate loaded implants are whereby permanent or temporary crowns,bridges or dentures are placed during the same trip when the dental implant posts is embedded in jaws.
Immediate loaded implants may follow after conventional implants or immediate implants.
Immediate loaded implants are normally recommended only for cases with good jawbone conditions.

The type of dental implants selected will be dependent on the patients’ specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan is usually required to evaluate the amount of bone, determine the space available and for a thorough examination to diagnosing the options best suited for each case.

TIME FRAME & SITTINGS
We prefer to do the Implants in 1st visit along with temporaries, which should be changed to permanent Porcelain teeth after 6 months time, hence we recommend a second visit to us after at least 6 months. But if the conditions are fine, we can do IMMEDIATE LOADING with Crowns during the same visit. Each visit should be for at least 7-14 days time.

Answer – You will feel discomfort on the day and the very next day after the dental implant procedure. But then you need to understand that this discomfort is much less than that of the pain after the dental extractions. Depending on the type of the dental implant procedure, the magnitude of this discomfort will vary. But the best part is that it will stay only for a day or two as you would be on desired medications for 5-7 days.
