Implant Surgery

Implant surgery in dentistry refers to the procedure of placing dental implants into the jawbone to replace missing teeth or provide support for dental prostheses, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots typically made from biocompatible materials like titanium. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone to fuse with the bone over time through a process called osseointegration.

The implant surgery process involves several steps:

Assessment and Planning:

The dentist evaluates the patient’s oral health, reviews medical history, and assesses the condition of the jawbone through imaging techniques like X-rays or CT scans. A treatment plan is then created based on the patient’s needs and bone structure.

Surgical Placement:

The dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. This is typically done under local anesthesia, although sedation or general anesthesia might be used for more complex cases. During the surgery, an incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone, a hole is drilled into the bone, and the implant is inserted.


Over a period of several weeks to months, the implant integrates with the jawbone as it heals. This fusion process ensures stability and strength for the implant to support the prosthetic tooth or teeth.

Abutment Placement:

Once osseointegration is complete, a small connector piece called an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a base for attaching the prosthetic tooth or restoration.

Impression and Restoration:

An impression of the abutment and surrounding teeth is taken to create a custom prosthetic tooth or restoration. This could be a single crown, bridge, or even a denture, depending on the number of missing teeth and the patient’s specific needs.

Final Placement:

Once the prosthetic tooth or restoration is fabricated, it is securely attached to the abutment. The final result closely resembles a natural tooth in both function and appearance.

Implant surgery offers several advantages, such as improved chewing function, speech, and aesthetics compared to traditional removable dentures. Additionally, dental implants help prevent bone loss in the jaw, which can occur when teeth are missing and the underlying bone is not stimulated by chewing forces.

It’s important to note that the success of implant surgery depends on factors like the patient’s overall health, the quality of the bone, proper oral hygiene, and regular dental check-ups. Patients considering implant surgery should consult with a qualified dentist or oral surgeon to determine if they are suitable candidates for the procedure.
