The dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
Teeth implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. The goal of teeth replacement in dentistry is to restore function as well as esthetics.

The Parts of a Dental Implant:
Implants, which replace missing teeth and provide a long-term solution, consist of 3 main parts.
- Titanium root/screw/fixture: It has a solid material with a structure that is entirely compatible with the human body and does not cause any complications.
- Abutment: It is a sort of metal that connects the other parts of the implant.
- Crown: porcelain crowns generally have a metal or zircon substructure.
In the first visit, after the titanium root/screw is placed in the patient’s jawbone, the healing time is approximately 3 to 4 months. In the second visit, upon completion of the required preparations, the abutment and crown are placed on the implant, and then the procedure is completed.
Different Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a viable long-term solution for those who have lost one or more teeth. The absence of a tooth or teeth can significantly affect an individual’s ability to speak, chew, and maintain a desirable aesthetic appearance, which can ultimately impact their self-confidence. Implants are often recommended as a viable alternative to traditional bridges or dentures, and they can support a single crown, bridge, or dentures, providing a comprehensive solution for those who are missing one or more teeth. The ideal type of implant solution will depend on the individual’s unique needs. We have outlined the various types of implant solutions that may be suggested as follows:
Single and Multiple Implants/Full Mouth Implants
As you may be aware, a dental implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically inserted to replace a missing tooth root. The implant is designed to gradually integrate with the surrounding jawbone tissue, creating a secure foundation for the placement of a replacement tooth or crown.
The implant treatment typically takes between three to four months to complete, depending on any necessary preparation work. This is because the implant requires time to bond with the bone surrounding it, ensuring long-term stability and durability.
While it is possible to have multiple dental implants, patients with extensive tooth loss may be advised to consider alternative solutions such as an implant-supported bridge or denture.
Implant-supported bridges offer a viable solution for individuals seeking to replace multiple missing or deteriorating teeth in a row. They provide an alternative to traditional bridges or individual implants, which may require cutting into healthy teeth and fail to address bone loss.
Implant-supported bridges are inserted into the jawbone, where over time, they fuse with the bone. Abutment posts are then attached to the implants, and following a further healing period, the bridge is placed on top of the implants to secure it in place. The duration of the entire process may vary from person to person, but generally, it takes four to five months.
It is important to note that some individuals may require additional supporting treatment, such as a bone graft before they can undergo an implant-supported bridge procedure. This can extend the treatment duration to between six and nine months.
Implant-retained dentures, also referred to as implant-supported dentures or ‘clip-in’ dentures, are an excellent option for individuals who have lost many natural teeth but possess sufficient bone to support dental implants. These dentures consist of replacement teeth supported on an acrylic base and affixed to dental implants.
Typically, the dentures are equipped with a bar that securely fastens onto the implants, providing superior stability compared to conventional removable dentures. While they can be removed for cleaning, implant-retained dentures are less prone to slipping or falling out while speaking or laughing, offering a comfortable and functional solution for those seeking a dependable and long-lasting tooth replacement option.
The duration of treatment for implant-retained dentures typically lasts between four and six months, and it may vary depending on your specific requirements. The initial step involves the placement of the implants, followed by a few months of waiting for the implant to heal. During this interim period, you will be provided with either a temporary denture or allowed to wear your existing ones, provided they are in good condition.
Potential Hazards Associated with Dental Implants:
There exists a slight possibility that the dental implants may not properly integrate with the bone in your jaw, which may render them unusable. This risk is amplified in individuals who smoke. Your dental practitioner will inform you if they believe that your risk level is higher than normal.
Over time, certain components of your implant may loosen or wear out. If this issue is not addressed promptly, it can fail the implant.
The long-term maintenance of your implants is your responsibility. You may choose to have them tended to by a local dentist, or you may elect to visit your dentist annually for maintenance. This service is provided at your own expense. Rarely, bone grafts may result in swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
Maintenance of Dental Implants and Aftercare Tips:
Following your dental treatment, you should be able to resume routine eating habits without issue. However, your dental provider may suggest a soft food diet for added precaution.
Please note that alcohol consumption should be avoided for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
To prevent bleeding for the first 24 hours, do not spit and try to swallow as much as possible.
Again, avoid eating coarse-grained foods for a few days.
It would be a good idea to apply ice compresses to your face intermittently according to the dentist’s instructions.
It is typically safe to return to work the day following your procedure, although individuals with dentures may need to abstain from wearing them for up to two weeks. It is advisable to consult with your dental provider to determine if this applies to you.
Lastly, it is highly recommended that smoking be discontinued before and after your treatment to promote optimal oral health.

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves one to two procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first two to four months following surgery, the implants are at the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures or partial dentures and eat a soft diet during this time.
After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. DentOdream will attach small posts called abutments that protrude through the gums and will act as anchors for the prosthetic teeth. When the crowned teeth are placed, these posts will not be seen. The entire procedure usually takes a total of two to four months except in certain cases that may take longer. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life.
