Many individuals looking into dental implants have been told that surgeries such as hip grafts may be required in order to fortify jaw structure prior to implant surgery. Our technique has allowed us to provide same day dental implants, without additional surgeries for many individuals who had been previously told that these grafting surgeries were required.
It may sound intimidating, affixing anything to a spot as tender as your mouth. A dental implant can range in complexity from replacing just one tooth, to installing a full set of upper and lower teeth. Depending on the severity of mouth condition a patient is experiencing, more work may need to be done in order to ensure a successful implant. There are many factors put into consideration for determining if a patient is suitable for dental implants. For example, if there is existing or extensive damage to the gums surrounding the teeth, additional surgery may be required in order to make the arches viable for implants. This can range from procedures like a sinus lift, or a gingival graft. However, many of our patients do not have severe enough conditions to be considered for additional surgeries.
Dental implants are typically made up of three parts; the implant itself, which resembles a screw, an abutment and a crown. Single dental implants just look like a tooth on the end of a screw, to keep it simple. These implants are typically made of a strong metal, which the body will eventually bond with through a process called osseointegration. Along with the body’s bonding process, practitioners also take into consideration the amount of pressure the implant may be under during processes like chewing and general wear and tear. If you’re unsure about whether this is the right type of procedure for you, there are a few things you should consider.

Ceramic dental implants are also known within the industry as zirconia implants. Zirconia is a type of ceramic and can be used in several dental applications, including the manufacturing of the implant itself as well as the core (or substructure) of the tooth. Using zirconia as the substructure material can provide a more aesthetically pleasing result than titanium as zirconia is lighter in colour and less likely to be seen through the outer porcelain layer.
At Chrysalis Dental Centres, we typically use dental implants that are made of titanium; however, we usually use zirconia substructures for individual teeth or bridges that are visible when you smile.
