Dental Implants in Dubai

Millions of people lose their teeth due to tooth decay, accidents, or gum diseases. Tooth decay, accidents, or gum diseases are some common causes of teeth loss. After losing teeth, one would expect to have new teeth to replace the lost ones. While dentures and bridges have been traditional solutions for tooth replacement, dental implants are now a widely used modern alternative.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line to serve as the roots for artificial teeth. These titanium posts provide a stable foundation for artificial teeth, which can be customized to match your natural teeth. These implants offer a very strong base for your new pearly white teeth and are the best choice for having a full set of teeth. There are three main components of dental implants.

Titanium implant: This is a screw-like post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to anchor the artificial tooth.

Implant Abutment: This connector piece attaches to the titanium implant and supports the crown, acting as a link between the implant and the artificial tooth.

Implant Crown: This is the visible part of the dental implant, resembling a natural tooth, and is placed on top of the abutment.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are numerous benefits of dental implants which make them preferable to overdentures. Have a look at some of them below;

Improved self-confidence: Missing teeth can impact self-esteem, and dental implants can help restore confidence by improving the appearance of one’s smile.

Enhanced appearance: Dental implants are designed to feel and look like your own teeth. Dental implants, being a permanent solution, can improve the appearance and function of your teeth more effectively than removable dentures. A new set of pearly whites to fill in space in your dental structure will enhance your appearance.

Better eating:  Eating can be challenging with gaps in your dental structure, and even more so with dentures that may move during chewing. Dental implants enhance chewing efficiency, enabling you to comfortably eat various foods, but caution is advised with extremely hard or sticky foods. Dental implants are designed to be durable and long-lasting, but like natural teeth, they can be damaged by trauma or poor oral hygiene.

Improved speech: Missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures that slide can hinder speech, making it difficult to pronounce certain words and causing slurred speech. Dental implants provide stability that prevents slipping, making it easier and more confident to pronounce words clearly.

Comfort: Dental implants come with a sense of comfort. If you have had dentures in the past, you know that they are not permanent and you have to remove them every now and then. This can be an embarrassing inconvenience each time you need to remove them. Dental implants are fixed in your jaws, similar to natural teeth, eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience associated with removable dentures. In addition to this, you can wake up the same person you were when you went to bed.

Dental Implants Candidates

  • Commitment to good oral hygiene.
  • Candidates must be in good general health, specifically for undergoing procedures like tooth extraction or oral surgery.
  • Adequate jawbone density
  • Regularly visiting the dentist’s office for general check-ups.

Dental Implants FAQs

How long does it take to place dental implants?

The duration for placing a dental implant varies, typically between 30-60 minutes per implant, depending on the complexity and location.

Is the procedure painful?

Since it is a surgical procedure so there is some discomfort associated with it. You will feel pain once the anesthesia wears off. Placement of one dental implant causes less pain as compared to several implants. Therefore, dental surgeons use local anesthesia to eliminate pain or discomfort during the procedure. Post-surgical pain can be managed with prescribed medications and following the dentist's care instructions. However, dental implants are less painful as compared to tooth extraction.

How long do implants last?

While research indicates dental implants can last over 25 years with proper care, individual results may vary based on maintenance and oral health.

How long do dental implants take to heal?

The healing process for dental implants typically ranges from 6-12 weeks but may extend longer, depending on individual factors like healing rate and overall oral health.

Can dental implants be replaced?

Dental implants can be replaced if they fail or get damaged. The replacement approach is determined based on individual cases and professional assessment by a dentist.

How to care for dental implants?

Just as your natural teeth require care, dental implants also need maintenance. Care for your implants by brushing, flossing, using antibacterial mouthwash, and attending regular dental check-ups.

How is dental implant performed?

Initially, a customized treatment plan is developed to address the patient's specific needs. A small titanium post, known as a dental implant, is inserted into the bone socket where the tooth is missing. The jawbone starts growing around the implanted metal post as it heals and securely anchors the post in the jaw.

In the next step, an abutment (small connector post) is attached to the post that holds the new tooth securely. The dentist then makes the impressions of teeth on the dental implant to create a model of bite. In the end, a crown is attached to the abutment. The color of implants is matched to your natural teeth and they function just like natural teeth.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

The success rate of dental implants is high, up to 98%, but varies based on factors like the patient's oral health and implant position.

Is there any specific age limit to get dental implants?

Dental implants are usually recommended for adults after complete jaw growth, typically post-18 years, though it can vary based on individual development

What is the dental implant cost in Dubai?

The cost of dental implants in Dubai varies, typically ranging from AED 3500 to AED 14000, depending on various factors such as the type of implant and procedural complexity.
