An Overview of Types of Dental Implants

There are many people with misaligned, discolored, cracked or crooked teeth. They are often under the impression that they will never have the perfect set of teeth to suit their facial structure and enhance their smile. However, the dentist Mumbai and those from other major Indian cities have made it possible with dental implants. With their expertise and years of experience, they regularly bring smiles on people’s face by completing an average of 500 successful implant procedures in a month.

There are several types of dental implants. If you take in the factor of duration of the treatment, dental implants are of three types namely:

  • two-stage implants
  • single stage implants
  • immediate implants

Two-stage implants occur over a period of three months, and the procedure is divided into two stages. The first phase involves fixing the teeth to the gums and in the second, the crown is fabricated. Single stage implants are a quicker process with the fabrication and complete implantation covered within a two-week period. The third type of implant is the immediate implant, in which the entire implant process is done in a day. It requires the use of extensive machinery and technology and obviously more capital.

The price range for different types of dental implants increases depending on the time it takes for the treatment and the level of technology used. But the effectiveness of the implant is constant at all levels. Some less popular implant types are all on four implant that includes the fixation of four teeth into their place; all on six implants, which implies six permanent teeth being fixed and the ceramic implants which are made of bioceramic zirconia, the material with which the tooth is coated.

Broadly, these are the main types of dental implants offered by dentist Mumbai clinics but the tricky part is to find the best clinic to get an implant. Since it involves the fixation of permanent teeth into the gums, you will have to live with the results for the rest of your life. Hence, it is important that the treatment is done right under expert supervision. The measurement of the teeth should suit the patient’s dental structures, the color must be right and it should be fixed with extreme caution.
