Posted by Dr Rajat Sachdeva on March 18th, 2021

 We at Dr Sachdeva’s Dental Clinic in Delhi believe that anyone who is healthy enough to undergo routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for Dental Implant.

Implant is a root and tooth form replacement of a missing or lost tooth in your mouth which helps in functional and esthetic rehabilitation. This is the best treatment option available to replicate as close to a natural tooth as possible. You might need a single or multiple implants depending on the diagnosis, for more clarification for this you can consult the best implantologist in Delhi. You can call today at +91-9818894041 and book your consultation appointment today.

Most people are excellent candidates, but there are qualifications and precautions that make a successful dental implant more likely.

  • GUMS AND ORAL TISSUES SHOULD BE IN GOOD HEALTH.
  • ADEQUATE BONE DENSITY TO SUPPORT THE IMPLANT OR SUITABLE FOR BONE GRAFT.
  • A NON SMOKER OR WILLING TO QUIT SMOKING.
  • GOOD ORAL HYGIENE AND MAINTAINING IT
  • NO PREDISPOSING HEALTH CONDITIONS THAT WOULD HAMPER THE HEALING PROCESS AFTER IMPLANT PLACEMENT(DIABETES, HEARTCONDITIONS, RADIATION).
  • PEOPLE WHO TAKE CERTAIN MEDICATIONS LIKE STEROIDS OR DRUGS WHICH SUPPRESS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
  • PREGNANCY PLACES YOU AT A RISK.
  • CERTAIN HABITS LIKE SEVERE GRINDING OF TEETH OR CLENCHING OF TEETH WHICH MAY PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE IMPLANT AND CAUSE LONG TERM DAMAGE.
  • A YOUNG PERSON WITH A GROWING JAWBONE IS NOT AN IDEAL CANDIDATE.
  • HAVING PATIENCE WITH THE PROCESS THAT MIGHT TAKE UP TIME TO BE COMPLETED.

What are the evaluations done for an implant?

The Dentists at Dr. Sachdeva’s Dental Clinic, Delhi says that successful implantation starts with a thorough evaluation of the oral cavity, the jaws and the overall health.

Before a patient is considered for a Dental Implant procedure a series of steps are to be considered:

    • INITIAL DIAGNOSIS – DURING THE DIAGNOSTIC APPOINTMENT, THE DENTIST WILL EXAMINE THE EDENTULOUS SITE AND OBSERVE FEW KEY AREAS LIKE THE OPPOSITE AND ADJACENT TOOTH ALIGNMENT. THIS APPOINTMENT IS ESSENTIAL TO CHECK THE AMOUNT OF SPACE PRESENT FOR THE PLACEMENT OF THE IMPLANT.
    • X-RAYS OR
      THEY ARE AN ADJUNCT WHICH HELP IN THE PROCESS OF DIAGNOSIS, X RAYS HELPS IN FINDING THE HEIGHT OF THE BONE PRESENT IN THE EDENTULOUS AREA. IT ALSO HELPS IN LOCATING THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF ESSENTIAL AND CRITICAL STRUCTURES IN THE BONE.
    • CT SCAN
      IT IS AN ADDITIONAL DIAGNOSTIC TEST WHICH ACTS AS AN ADJUNCT FOR TREATMENT PLANNING AND DIAGNOSIS
      • THOROUGH MEDICAL EXAMINATION
        BEFORE PLACEMENT OF THE DENTAL IMPLANT, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO CHECK THE HEALTH STATUS OF BENEFICIARIES.

These help us make an accurate assessment of the treatment by identifying the bone loss and locating the sinuses, the nerves and medical examination plays an important role in final treatment planning.

What is bone grafting, would I need bone grafting while placing an implant?

Bone grafting is a material that is used to build bone in areas where it is deficit. Bone graft can be osteogenic or osteoinductive in nature.

If you have suffered a bone loss, then there are chances that your dentist would suggest you the need for bone grafting to get the adequate height or width of bone for placing the implant. However, it’s important to note that the bone grafting procedure does take a number of weeks to heal  and the dental implants cannot be placed until the healing process is complete.
