Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are in reasonably good health and have no bone loss in your jaw, you should be a suitable patient for dental implants. Bone loss in the jaw is caused by the advanced form of gum disease, known as periodontitis. If gum disease is allowed to progress, it begins to damage the jaw bone and soft tissues that support the teeth, which leads to tooth loss.

Bone loss does not necessarily preclude dental implants, but a further procedure, such as a bone graft, may be required to provide enough bone to hold the implant. The bone graft will take several months to heal, and could delay the implant procedure for up to a year.

If you smoke, you’ll need to pack it in as smokers are not good candidates for dental implants. When implants are first placed, they need to be kept clean, infection-free and the jaw bone requires maximum nutrients to heal and promote the process of osseointegration, which is how the jaw bone and implant fuse together securely. Smoking diminishes blood flow, reducing oxygen and nutrients in the cells, which are responsible for fighting infection and healing. If these are compromised, it could lead to the implant falling out.

Can I Rely on the Quality of the Dental Implants I Receive in Egypt?

Our listed dentists in Egypt are well-trained with many opting to take part in their training overseas in Europe or the United States. Implantologists are specialists and likely to be affiliated with professional organisations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI.

Private dental facilities in Egypt are of a high standard. They are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies, such as 3D/CT scanning and digital radiography, making for accurate diagnosis, treatment planning and predictable results.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Implants? Is it a Good Option for Dental Tourists?

The dental implant procedure is a great option for dental tourists, but it is a two-stage process and does require two separate visits.

At this first visit, your dental implant will be inserted, usually under a local anaesthetic (although conscious sedation may also be an option). The procedure involves the dentist making a small incision in the gum to form a flap. This is opened to expose the jaw bone. A small hole is made in the jaw and the implant put in place. The gum flap is then closed and stitched in place. Stitches are usually dissolvable, and once they have dissolved, you won’t see any evidence of the implant as it will be completely enclosed below the gum line, like a tooth root.

It will be several months before you return for the second part of the procedure, during which time the bone and implant will fuse together in a process called osseointegration. This provides a strong and stable foundation for your false tooth to be attached to.

When you return to your dentist for the final stage of the procedure, your implantologist will open up the gum to expose the implant. An abutment, which is like a post, is attached to the implant at one end, with the other protruding through the gum where the replacement tooth (crown) can be fitted.

Once the crown is in position, the procedure is complete—and you can look forward to using your new tooth in exactly the same way as your old tooth.
