Here Fort Dental Hospital have different treatments for replacement of missing teeth.Commonly removable partial dentures, removable complete dentures, Crowns and Bridges. In Fort dental hyderabad, Dental Implants are advance in artificial teeth replacement, that changed the lives for better.
what is a Dental Implant??
A dental implant is a Root , it made of Titanium used in Dentistry to put back and appearance similar tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.
The placement of dental implants that can take few months. In Our Dental Hospital Mehdipatam,Hyderabad, the dentist first places into the jaw, with the top of the implant slightly above the top of the bone. A screw is inserted into the implant to prevent gum tissue and other wrekage from entering. The gum is secured over the implant it will remain covered for three to six months while the implant fuses with the bone.
In the second step, In our Dental Hospital, the implant is uncovered and the dentist attaches a post, its known as abutment, to the implant. The gum tissue is allowed to heal. Once restored , the post serves as the foundation for the new tooth.
In the final step, the dentist makes artificial tooth, called a dental crown, based on a color, shape , size that will blend with your other teeth. Once completed, the crown is attached to implant post and you are dental implants are in place.

Earlier, health was considered to be mere absence of disease. World Health Organization (WHO), in 1948 revised the definition of health and defined it as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” After which even missing teeth, asymmetry of face which disturbs the mental and social well-being were considered and treated actively.
The goal of modern dentistry is to rehabilitate the patient to his complete function while maintain the structural integrity of the adjacent tooth/teeth and soft tissues while replacing a single tooth with caries or multiple missing teeth. What makes implant dentistry unique is, its technical ability to be placed in the injured, atrophied or disease tissues with utmost ease.
Why dental implants?
- Good comfortable fit and a natural look.
Dental implants are made so efficiently to mimic the natural dentition. They simulate the structure, function and aesthetic appearance of the natural teeth. Therefore, they look, feel, and act as natural dentition. All of these makes an individual more comfortable, confident and socially more esteemed to talk, smile and chew. Not letting the fear of dentures falling out creep their minds.
- Long-lasting and reliable.
With proper care an implant, though a prothesis can last long. Even though can’t be considered to be a lifelong replacement but does gives a long life. All of which depends on the maintenance of the patient.
- Ease of functionality – ability to eat, chew and speech
Differing from the dentures in their stability, implants anchor to the jaw bone. This not only prevents the bone loss and also helps an individual to eat, chew and speak simulating a natural dentition.
- Survival rates
Implants, well planned, well placed and well maintained are the present best option for the replacement of missing teeth. Their success rated increases dramatically with the improved designs and patient’s care and compliance.
- Improved appearance and preserves adjacent structures
Unlike other fixed replacement options, implants don’t require adjacent teeth preparation. And also preserves the bone into which it is anchored. Thus, maintains the natural appearance of the individual in the mouth and also outside by supporting the lips and adjacent soft tissues.
What happens to the bone ones the tooth is lost?
Single tooth replacement with implant:
The missing single tooth if not replaced can cause drifting of the adjacent teeth in to the empty space. Also causes the opposing tooth to move down as its counterpart is missing.
Replacement of single missing tooth with a (Fixed prosthesis) crown and bridge requires preparation on healthy adjacent teeth. There is continuous loss of bone in the area of missing teeth (beneath the pontic) replaced by FPD. Also changes of failure or fracture of the restorations made on the adjacent healthy teeth (Abutments).
Addressing these cons of FPD, single missing teeth can be best replaced by an implant supported prosthesis.
A single-tooth implant to replace a missing tooth has the highest success rate, and the adjacent teeth are less likely to decay, require endodontics, or result in additional tooth loss.
The above picture shows the steps in the replacement of the single missing teeth by implant.
The implant has the following parts:
- Crest module
- Body and
These parts are placed inside the bone through a minor surgical procedure under local anaesthesia.
On to which the abutment is screwed, which holds the cemented prosthetic crown.
The implant once placed into the bone can be covered with a cover screw which is flush with the surface and can be covered with gum tissue.
Or can also be covered with a bigger screw, gingival former (healing screw). This protrudes out through the gums and tissue grows around it.
This is necessary for what is called “emergence profile”, for the prosthetic tooth placed on the healed implant to appear coming through the tissues.
Multiple teeth or Complete teeth replacement:
Various techniques for the replacement of the multiple or complete missing teeth using implants
- All on 4 technique
- All on 6 technique
- Pterygoid implants
- Zygoma implants
These techniques are chosen depending upon the bone available after the removal of the teeth or after the resorption that usually happens if the missing tooth is not replaced.
Rate and Amount of Bone Loss Influenced By
- Ill-fitting dentures
- Facial type
- Time period dentures are worn
ALL-ON 4 IMPLANTS
Only 4 implants are placed and maximum anchorage is obtained by changing the angulation of the implants.
ALL-ON 6 IMPLANTS
Usually for the worn-out upper jaw, due to pathological loss of bone or long-standing missing teeth. Zygoma implants gets anchorage from the cheek bone and avoid sinus lifting or bone grafting procedures which do have their pros and cons.
Also can be used in multiple failures of conventional placement of implants, failure of grafts or sinus augmentation and also to rehabilitate after a tumour resection or trauma causing damage.
