Treatment Plan for Dental Implants
Dental implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in stages:
- Initial Assessment and Planning – The process begins with a thorough evaluation of your medical and dental history, followed by a comprehensive dental examination. This includes diagnostic imaging such as X-rays and 3D images, and sometimes a model of your teeth and jaw is made.
Tooth Removal – If your damaged tooth is still in place, it will need to be extracted. This step can usually be done at the same surgical visit as the implant placement.
Bone Grafting (if necessary) – If you have insufficient natural bone in your jaw to support an implant, a bone graft may be necessary. The graft can come from your own body or from synthetic materials. This process can require several months of healing before the dental implant can be placed.
Implant Placement – The dental implant is a titanium post that serves as a tooth root. It’s surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. You won’t see this part of the implant.
Healing and Bone Growth – Osseointegration, or the process of the bone growing around the implant, can take several months. This creates a strong base for your new artificial tooth.
Abutment placement – Once osseointegration is complete, the abutment (the piece where the crown will eventually attach) is placed on the dental implant. In some cases, this can be placed at the same time as the implant.
Artificial Tooth Placement – The final step is the placement of the artificial tooth. For a single tooth implant, your dentist will customize a new tooth for you, called a dental crown. This is based on size, shape, color, and fit, and it’s designed to blend in with your other teeth.
Alternative Treatment Options
Dental implants may not be suitable for everyone. If dental implants aren’t an option for you, other options for replacing missing teeth include:
- Bridges – A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
Dentures – Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They can be complete (if all teeth are missing) or partial.
Resin-Bonded Bridge – Also known as a Maryland bridge, it’s primarily used for your front teeth. It’s less expensive than other types of bridges.
The costs of dental implants and associated procedures can vary widely, as they depend on the individual patient’s needs and the required procedures to complete the treatment. According to the AUTONOME HONORARRICHTLINIEN, the estimated costs are as follows:
|Simple Implantation with Sufficient Bone Offer (with 3D implant navigation and punch technique)||1||1,476|
|Full Ceramic Crown (Jacket Crown)||1||1,132|
|Diagnostic Package (3D Scan, 3D DVT, Implant Planning)||1||180|
These costs are estimates only and may change depending on each individual patient’s treatment needs.
Abutment – A connector, placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
Bone Graft – A surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair, rebuild, or reinforce damaged or deficient bone.
Bridge – A dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
Crown – An artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
Denture – A removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Osseointegration – The process of the implant anchor fusing with the jawbone.
Resin-Bonded Bridge – Also known as a Maryland bridge, it’s primarily used for your front teeth and is less expensive than other types of bridges.
Titanium – A type of metal often used in dental implants due to its ability to fuse with bone.
