WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A dental implant has revolutionized the field of dentistry. It has become the number one choice and an ideal method to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
Implants act by replacing the root portion of the tooth, thus not only replace a tooth, but also support the bone beneath thereby preventing loss of jaw bone after tooth loss.
On top of dental implants, implant crowns are placed that replace the tooth portion.
Dental implants prevent unnecessary grinding of adjacent natural teeth in cases of bridge placement thereby helps ensures the longevity and preserves the life of the remaining teeth.
WHEN IS A DENTAL IMPLANT NEEDED?
Dental Implant is needed in case there are missing teeth or existing teeth need to be removed and replaced.

DENTAL IMPLANT COMPARED TO OTHER ALTERNATIVES
Bridges and Dentures are alternatives to dental implants.
However, dental implants are fixed and a far more durable and long term treatment option as compared to bridges and dentures.
Within bridges, the natural healthy tooth structure of adjacent teeth will be lost due to cutting for receiving the bridge. Within bridges and dentures, bone loss continues to happen even after treatment is done.
If we consider a time span of 10 years, an implant will still be functioning just like another tooth. You just need to maintain oral hygiene and health around the implant as you may need with any other tooth. However, considering the average lifespan of Bridge (8-12 years) depending upon your oral hygiene maintenance , you might need to replace the bridge, which will again cost you more keeping in mind inflation and increased span of bridge that you may need. The longer bridge might be needed if bone loss has occurred around the supporting teeth. So, over 10 years this bridge may cost you an amount which is more than or equal to the cost of the Implant.

COST OF DENTAL IMPLANT:
The cost of dental implants depends on many factors such as
Cost of a single dental implant varies from INR 22,000 to INR 70,000.
As compared to bridges, which require cutting of natural tooth structure of adjacent teeth, this natural tooth structure once lost cannot be replaced. Thus, the extra price paid initially for a dental implant is worth the investment as the natural tooth structure once lost cannot be replaced in its natural form.
While a bridge or a denture might seem like a cheaper alternative at the start, considering the average lifespan of Bridge (8-12 years) depending upon your oral hygiene maintenance , you might need to replace the bridge, which will again cost you more keeping in mind inflation and increased span of bridge that you may need. The longer bridge might be needed if bone loss has occurred around the supporting teeth. So, over 10 years this bridge may cost you an amount which is more than or equal to the cost of the Implant.
TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental Implants are of primarily made up of two materials: titanium and ceramic.
Titanium is one of the most biocompatible implants and are used to replace most body parts. And can be used for teeth in all regions of the mouth.
While ceramic implants are more biocompatible, ceramic implants have not been found to be as successful as titanium implants. Only scenarios in which we recommend ceramic/zirconia implants are as follows:
- In case of known titanium allergy
- Affordability for a ceramic implant
There are a number of implant systems that specialists use all over the world. Our team of internationally trained implantologists are trained and specialized in several implant systems.
At Dent Ally, we only use internationally certified implant systems such as Israeli, American and German that have found to be most bio compatible.
LATEST IMPLANT TECHNIQUE:
Dent Ally is one of the very few clinics in India where the latest methodology of providing personalized solution to missing teeth through customized 3D dental implants is being adopted. These customized implants are placed through the most noninvasive and accurate guided surgery without any cuts and sutures. Thus, making the healing phase faster, comfortable and painless.
Dental Implants come in various sizes depending upon the size of the bone. Usually, what we need to do in size defined implants is that we need to cut the bone.
Using digitalization and 3 D technology, implants can now be customized to the size of the bone, thereby not causing any unnecessary bone cutting, need for sutures etc. The surgery is done via a computer simulation and this surgery is conducted with minimal incision and less pain through computer guided surgery solution via guiding splints.
Our team of dentists at Dent Ally, best dental clinic in India are internationally trained in this latest technique of implant placement and are amongst the very few dentists in Delhi, India who place implants using this technique.
We have outlined below the benefits that patients experience through this surgery:
