Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, whether one, two or several, a dental implant might be the perfect solution. The implant is made from titanium, which is biocompatible with our bodies and has been used in medical applications for decades. The implant is inserted into the jaw bone where it fuses with the bone, creating a strong base on which to attach a false tooth. The implant acts very much like a tooth root, and it isn’t visible as it’s placed under the gumline.

You will need to be in good general health and have no bone loss in your jaw. Bone loss is typically caused by periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease, which compromises the supporting structures, including gums and bone surrounding the teeth. As the disease progresses, there is less to hold the teeth in place, so the teeth become loose, eventually falling out.

If you have lost teeth through bone loss, then you may not be a good candidate for a dental implant, although it may be possible to have the treatment if you have a bone graft. However, the bone graft is a separate procedure, which will entail months of rehabilitation to allow the bone to regenerate before the implant treatment.

In these such cases, you may also want to look into the possibility of a more expensive All-on-4.

Other unsuitable candidates for dental implants are smokers. Smoking reduces blood flow, which means essential nutrients and oxygen needed to fight infection and for healing do not get to the cells where they are required. Although this is a potential risk throughout the life of your implant, it is more so when your implant has first been fitted when your body’s natural infection-fighting mechanisms are under extra stress.

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

● Dubai is one of the United Arab Emirates’ top tourist destinations and is fast becoming a popular healthcare destination, too. It’s world-class facilities, tourist-friendly infrastructure and myriad attractions are just some of the reasons why patients are travelling to Dubai for dental care, notwithstanding the expertise of its dentists.

● Dentists in Dubai have had years of training and are highly-skilled and well-qualified. Specialists, such as implantologists, are likely to be members or affiliates of internationally-renowned professional organisations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). As well as locally-trained dentists, Dubai attracts internationally-trained dentists too, thanks to the lifestyle offered in the city (as well as low-tax salaries). The sector is very competitive and so only the best dentists are allowed to work in the emirate.

● Private dental facilities in Dubai are generally excellent. Clinics are modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, including digital radiography, 3D/CT scanning and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM ).

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

Most dental procedures are a good option for dental tourists, and dental implants are no exception. One thing to be aware of is that it is a two-stage process, which will involve two separate visits to Dubai (three to six months apart).

During the first visit for your dental implant treatment, the implant is inserted into your jaw. Under a local anaesthetic, the dentist will create a small flap in the top of your gum line. The flap is opened up to expose the jawbone, into which a small hole is made ready for the placement of the implant. The gum flap is stitched back in place, and once the stitches have dissolved, you won’t see any evidence of the implant or your surgery.

The implant is left in situ for a number of months during which time it will fuse with the jaw in a process called osseointegration. During this part of the procedure, you will need to stay in Dubai for 10 days to two weeks, dependant on your dentist’s advice.

When you return to see your dentist in Dubai for the final stage of your implant procedure, the dentist will simply open up the gum again (under general anaesthetic) and attach an abutment to the implant, which is a post that protrudes through the gum. The gum is stitched around the abutment and the false tooth (crown) is placed on top of the post, completing the procedure. You will be required to stay in Dubai for around a week for this part of the procedure.
