Dental implant treatment is a predictable procedure. We aim to achieve “implants for life”. It is not a guarantee, but treatment philosophy. To work towards it, we need to work together through
From biological/periodontal point of view, Implants don’t need any more maintenance than teeth. The interval for implant maintenance is determined by periodontal (gum) health.
Dental implants are placed in one appointment under local anaesthesia without a lot of pain.
Dental implants are placed in a highly sterile environment, with careful handling of bone and surrounding structures. As a result, there is minimal post-operative discomfort experienced after the surgical procedure.
Good pretreatment preparation for improving oral hygiene and controlling periodontal infection would be required prior to implant placement.
Following post-operative instructions after the procedure for at least 24 hours help minimise ‘painful swelling’ in our experience. Post-operative discomfort is well managed with regular pain relief like Paracetamol (Panadol™) and Ibuprofen (Nurofen™ or Advil™).
Most cases can be managed in dental clinic under local anaesthetics (no need to get it done in hospitals).
You can request a detailed assessment of your condition, so that we can give you an accurate idea.
We work on the philosophy of affecting your personal life least by our intervention. We try to put you back in your life as soon as the surgical procedure is finished.
A light work (no exercise) is recommended for the first 24 hours.
Your case-specific advice in relation to particular work – nature and time – can be discussed during a consultation appointment after comprehensive assessment.
You must have healthy gums and adequate oral hygiene to be considered for implants.
In most medical conditions like osteoporosis or diabetes, dental implants are possible.
We need to assess your medical condition to provide case-specific advice.
In most cases, a temporary tooth or prosthesis is put in place immediately, or as soon as the swelling is subsided. A permanent restoration can be placed in six to twelve weeks on the implant.
Permanent tooth is generally attached to implant three months after the surgical procedure of fixture placement.
