State of the Art Dental Implant Surgery

Where India is concerned, dental implant surgery has been upgraded as compared to the scenario in the past to meet the requirements of the patient, besides maintaining a global standard when it comes to the practice of medicine in a developing country.

It is also important to note that the cost of dental implant surgery in India varies from city to city and also depends upon the type and kind of the surgery. For instance, the cost of endosteal dental implant is around INR 25000 whereas plate-form dental implant costs INR 23000. Generally speaking, the dental implant mechanism and the type of the surgery are the major factors that determine the overall affordability of a treatment.

Dental surgeries in the subcontinent depend on various other factors too. For instance, the ideal candidate for an implant surgery is the one who is essentially a non-smoker, has healthy gums and has enough bone to support the new implants in the jaw.

On the other hand, people who are alcoholics or daily smokers, have undergone radiotherapy in their mouth or are suffering from any chronic ailment whatsoever are generally not suited for implants.

However, dental surgeries have shown around ninety percent success rate. There are several advantages of implant surgeries, in fact, which any dentist in India would likely concur. Some such benefits are mentioned below:

  • Better speaking ability and improved capability to chew and bite food
  • Permanent solution to dental problems without additional damage to the other teeth
  • Prevents bone loss or the shrinkage of the jaw among other things
  • Does not require the concerned patient to clasps, adhesives or clumsy clips in order to keep the new tooth or teeth in place

The aforementioned merits reflect the fact that dental implants are indeed a boon for those who have disfigured or disoriented teeth. What is important to keep in mind is that the post-surgery recovery depends on a number of factors including the type of surgery. However, generally speaking, the recovery may take up to six months or more in most cases. The fitting and the seating of the crown may take up to an additional two months; although this too depends on the individual and the type of surgery being performed.
