Dental implant is a new change the replacement of permanent teeth. Before the outstanding development of the dental implant fields, people with the removable dentures could not chew many kinds of food, here is a comprehensive change and were widely used in the world to restore the permanent teeth that look like natural.
A dental implant is a titanium post (the same as natural tooth root) or called a frame that is place into the jowl under the gums. Once in place, it allows the dentists can place a porcelain crown on the implant post or a dental bridge into necessary area and called porcelain dental restorations step. An implant tooth will not be left out as the removable denture to minimize inconveniences when chewing and oral hygiene concurrently will prevent the jawbone loss and will not affect to another teeth areas like dental bridges.
Implant tooth integrates to the jowl so it creates the stabilization to support for the artificial porcelain crown at above. Dentures or dental bridges mount with the implants that will not be slipped out or shifted out the arch when chewing function or talking. This close association helps the dentures and dental bridges as well as the artificial porcelain crowns placed on the implants to be fixed and more natural than the traditional removable dentures.

► Titanium threaded implant post: is made from a benign compound and can survive in long-tern mouth environment. It is place in the lower or upper jawbone under the gum line.
► Implant abutment: is also made from Titanium, porcelain or gold. It is a connected part between implant post and the porcelain crown. It shapes as a natural tooth that has been cut down to receive a porcelain crown.
► Porcelain crown: is an essential part to contribute the aesthetic to the smile, it usually is made from porcelain-fused-to-metal alloy (PFM), full-porcelain or all metal. It is allowed to restore on the implant post after placement of abutment and healing.
The implant tooth procedure for replacing a tooth (or called the process of implantation of teeth):
► 1st step: The doctor will examine generally your dental status and take 3D X-rays
- Panoramic X-rays: for treatment of dental crown and general dentistry.
- CT Cone Beam X-rays: for treatment of dental implant, root canal and tooth extraction.
After analyzing your X-ray, the doctor will describe the entire of dental treatment process by mouth and on the computer which will be performed in the reality for you at the next appointments.
► 2nd step: The implant surgery
After analyzing your jawbone quality, the doctor will conduct to perform the implant surgery and may combine bone grafting technique if your bone lost a small to large volume. On the other hand, if the jawbone size at the upper jaw is too thin and close to the maxillary sinus the doctor will apply sinus lift techniques to widen the gap to support bone grafting step easily.
► 3rd step: Checking and placing the temporary tooth
From 24 hours to 36 hours after the implant surgery, the doctor will always follow your implant tooth status as well as the bone integration level between implant post and jowl and place temporary tooth on implant when wait the wound heal.
► 4th step: Porcelain crown restorations
After 6 – 9 months depends on the level of healing that allow the doctor place healing, abutment and porcelain crown on implant for you.

The patient lost all teeth with a long period to lead to the jawbone will loss too much so it is usually not enough the bone volume to place at least 4 implant on each jaw. Therefore, most of cases need to graft bone or combine sinus lift technique to increase the connection among bone and implant post concurrently support for fixed prostheses with 12 porcelain crowns at above.
This is an implant technique with 6 implants on a jaw, which is applied for any cases of complete tooth loss. However, the jawbone located at molar areas that have to respond enough jowl conditions about the quality as well as quantity for replacement implants.
► Immediate dental implant
Dental Implant is the most comprehensive solution and safety at present to recreate new tooth which is similar as a healthy natural tooth, reaches more than 95% of chewing function and possibly restore new tooth as desired.
