Explore Dental Implants Cost and Advantages

As much as it is overlooked, a healthy set of teeth go a long way in ensuring good health and pleasant appearance, thus improving the quality of one's life to a great extent.

When it comes to missing teeth, most would be aware of the agony associated with temporary dentures. But thanks to the advanced technologies in the field of dentistry, dental Implants have put an end to that misery for good!

What is Dental Implants?
Dental implant is a surgical procedure wherein metal posts (highly advanced titanium device) are fitted either into the bone of the jaw or skull to support artificial tooth replacements such as crowns, bridges or dentures permanently. With time, these metal frames merge with the jawbone to form a strong bond that your replacement tooth can mount on.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Getting a dental implant gives you the freedom to enjoy foods that you cannot eat otherwise like apples, meat etc. since the material is designed to safely withstand extreme biting forces.
  • The look and feel of dental implants is the closest (at times, even better!) to your natural teeth.
  • It provides freedom from the clasps of temporary dentures that pressurize and damage your gums and natural teeth in the long run.
  • Unlike temporaries, these are sturdy enough to last a lifetime, thus ensuring a good return for the time and money spent.
  • Dental implants are suitable for all age groups.
  • Unlike crowns, implants don't exert any pressure on surrounding teeth and require minimal maintenance.

Who Requires Dental Implants?
Patients who have lost one or multiple teeth due to an accident, injury, disease or decay can choose to get dental implants.

Understanding the Procedure

  • Single Dental Implant
    Single implant is fitted in place of the missing tooth, after which an artificial tooth is fitted onto it.
  • Multiple Dental Implants
    Based on the number of missing teeth, that many or fewer implants are fitted. For instance, if 3 teeth need replacement, it is possible to scale them on a 3 unit bridge mounted over 2 implants.
  • Full Dental Implants
    This procedure involves either placement of multiple unit bridges over implants or directly placing implant-supported dentures.

Dental Implants Cost
Depending on the technology used and the number of implants required, dental implants cost can range anywhere between 5,000 INR to 60,000 INR and above.

It should be noted that more expensive implants will also have a longer shelf life as they are technically more advanced.

How Long?
Depending on the case and technology used, dental implants in India can take anywhere between a day to even 3 months, in cases where it has to be carried out in two stages.

So, in today's day and age, when technology has begun to dominate every aspect of our lives, it is high time we make the most of it for our oral health as well!
