What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant replaces a missing tooth (or teeth). The implant takes the place of a tooth root and is embedded into the jawbone, below your gum line (so you won’t see it). A crown (false tooth) is attached to the implant, which looks, feels and acts exactly like one of your own teeth.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are in good general health you may well be a suitable candidate for dental implants. However, there are some instances where implants may not be advisable.

● Bone Loss in the Jaw

Bone loss may be caused by several factors, but in the jaw is nearly always as a result of periodontitis , an advanced form of gum disease. Periodontitis erodes the bone surrounding the tooth root, and with no bone in place to hold the tooth, it will eventually become loose and fall out. Obviously, it stands to reason that if there is no bone to hold a tooth, then there is no bone to hold an implant. The implant procedure is still possible, but it will require a separate bone graft procedure , which may possibly delay your implant procedure for a year while your new bone augments.

● Smokers

Dental implants are not advised for smokers because it decreases the body’s ability to promote healing and fight infection. When implants are first placed this is particularly important, but smoking can cause damage to the surrounding tissue many years after the implants have been placed. Thus, smoking can cause your implants to fail at any time.

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

Dentists in Georgia have the requisite knowledge and expertise to carry out dental implant procedures efficiently and accurately. Dentist training is thorough, and on a par with western dentists, with many dentists undergoing ongoing additional training and likely to be members of professional organisations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI ).

Private healthcare facilities in Georgia are well-equipped and contemporary. Thus, state-of-the-art technologies, including digital x-rays and 3D/CT scans, are installed in many clinics, and they adhere to internationally renowned protocols on hygiene and safety.

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

You will need to be aware that the dental implant procedure involves two stages, which means you will have to be prepared to make two separate trips to Georgia to complete the treatment.

First Stage – Implant Placement:

The dental implant is placed into the jawbone, in a procedure that is carried out under a local anaesthetic, or conscious sedation. During the procedure, the dentist makes a small incision in the gum where the tooth is missing. The gum is folded back to make a flap to expose the jawbone. A small hole is drilled in the jawbone and the implant carefully inserted. The gum flap is stitched back into place over the implant, and the implant left undisturbed for a period of months in order for the bone and implant to fuse together in a process called osseointegration.

Second Stage – Attachment of Crown

Several months will need to elapse before the crown can be affixed to your implant. The process will vary from patient to patient and so you will need to discuss this in detail with your dentist in Georgia in order to book your return appointment at a time convenient to you both.

The second stage simply requires opening up the gum again (usually under a local anaesthetic) to expose the implant. To complete the procedure, the crown is attached by way of a small post (an abutment) that fits into the implant and the crown.
