Dental Implant Parts
Contrary to popular belief, the implant isn’t what most patients think it is, there are actually three main parts to receiving a dental implant. The first part is the implant itself, which is a titanium screw that is placed within the jawbone. The second part is the abutment, which is an extender that is screwed into the implant allowing the false tooth to be placed on top. The final part of the whole dental implant is the crown or the tooth portion of the false tooth.
Dental Implant Bone Grafting
The vast majority of patients that require dental implants are eligible for the procedure. The main determining factor is the strength of the jawbone in a patient’s mouth. Before receiving a dental implant, your surgical specialist will evaluate your mouth during your consultation by taking a 3D CBCT scan. This scan is very important to let your surgeon evaluate where your nerves and arteries are, as well as your bone levels. Evaluating these factors with a 3D scan helps avoid surgical complications and increases the success rate of the implant. The most important factor for a dental implant is the availability of bone. The implant is placed within the bone, this creates a solid foundation called osseointegration. When bone density or availability of bone is low, a procedure called bone grafting might be necessary. This aids in assuring the implant is fully stable enough to support the weight of chewing. Bone grafting can be done before implant placement or during implant placement, depending on the severity of the bone grafting needed.

Dental Implant Procedure
During the implant surgical procedure, you can decide if you want to be awake or if you want IV sedation(sedation blog) to sleep. If you need your tooth extracted the specialist will decide if the implant can be placed the same day or not, depending on if there is an infection present and how much bone grafting is needed. Once the site is prepped for the implant, your surgical specialist will place the dental implant by slowly creating bigger holes. Once the precise hole size is made, the implant will be screwed into the jaw bone. After being secured in place, bone grafting may or may not be placed depending on what additional surgical procedure is necessary to ensure a successful implant. The procedure is now complete and you will need anywhere from 3-5 months to heal before you can receive your crown and abutment. This healing time is very important to ensure the implant has fully osseointegrated with the bone, creating a solid foundation. This foundation will be what supports all the forces of daily chewing.

Dental Implant Failure
Implant failure or implantitis can occur in multiple ways. One example is if the implant is placed without enough available bone or if the crown is placed too soon. Doing this can cause the implant to fail due to the bone not being fully osseointegrated or too soft. Another example would be if post-operative instructions aren’t followed. This can lead to postoperative infections causing the implant to be rejected by the body. It is very important to take medication as directed. As well as avoiding smoking or vaping. Ensuring your implant is placed by a specialist who has the right technology is also important to avoid any surgical or post-surgical complications.

Dental Implant Recovery
Small amounts of bleeding are normal following the procedure. A piece of gauze may be placed in the area to help control this bleeding. No strenuous activity for a couple of days following treatment.
Minor discomfort following treatment is normal. Take Ibuprofen every 6 hours or as needed for pain. Stronger pain medication can be taken depending on the extent of the surgery. Antibiotics will be given and should be taken till they are all gone. This is important to avoid any postoperative infection. Do not drink alcohol while taking prescription medication.
To reduce swelling ice packs may be placed over the surgical areas. Apply for 10 minutes on, a few minutes off. Sleep with your head elevated and continue this for the first couple of days following treatment.
DO NOT SMOKE AS THIS MAY CAUSE THE IMPLANT TO FAIL.
Avoid anything that could disrupt the surgical area. After Day 1, you may begin gently rinsing with warm salt water; use 1 teaspoon of salt in one cup of warm water and use it as a rinse to promote healing. Brush and floss as normal but avoid the surgical site.
The first couple of days following treatment it is important to follow a soft diet. A normal diet may be continued following the first couple of days as long as chewing is done on the opposite side of treatment. Drink plenty of water and avoid straws.
Dr Choi is hands down the best dentist/dental surgeon I have ever been to and unfortunately being 46 and having an extensive sports background and poor oral hygiene I have been to more then I care to share. His staff, office, etc are so inviting and I would recommend him solely to anyone and everyone that may be looking for a new dentist/oral surgeon. I’m receiving new implants for my front teeth which are obviously critical to one’s appearance and can not be more satisfied with the experience so far. Definitely 5 stars from me!!
Dental Implant Cost
The cost of dental implants can vary depending on multiple factors. For example, dental insurance providers have their own set costs and coverage based on the set plan you have chosen. If you do not have dental insurance, each dental provider has its own set costs based on the type of implant provided. The dental implant cost is completely separate from the crown and abutment cost. The implant cost can range anywhere from $2000-$3000. The crown and abutment can range from $1500-$2000. However, with dental insurance, your out-of-pocket payment may be reduced.
