What you need to know about Dental Implant in Thailand

Also known as an Endosseous Implant or a Fixture. A dental implant is a surgical procedure to replace damaged or missing teeth. The implant consists of a screw-like implant fixed into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth (crown), bridge or even an over-denture that looks and feels like a real tooth. Due to the nature of the surgery and the various steps involved, multiple trips to the dental facility will be necessary and may even require two separate visits abroad to complete the procedure. Your dentist will confirm the exact requirements.

Dental implants are made of pure titanium, a material that is completely bio-compatible (compatible with body tissues) and actually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the body. Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth, where teeth are most commonly lost due to disease or trauma (often an accident or sports injury).

Alternative options include fixed bridges, removable dentures or root canal treatment.Unlike Dentures, implants are not removed for overnight soaking and cleaning, need no adhesives and do not require anchoring to healthy teeth.

Dental Implant v's Natural Tooth

There are four main types of Dental Implants:

1. Two-Stage Dental Implants:

This type of implant requires surgery to place the dental implant into the jaw bone. After letting the mouth heal for a few months, the patient is required to go back in for another minor surgery and expose the implant and attach the dental implant abutment and temporary crown or restoration.

2. Endosteal/Endosseous Dental Implants:

Implants are placed into the jaw bone and are usually placed in the aforementioned two-stage treatment option. These types of dental implants are often used in place of a bridge or denture.

3. Single-Stage Dental Implants:

This type of dental implant involves placing a longer implant into the jaw and gum so that the top of the implant is exposed. This allows the dentist to go into the mouth after several months of healing and place the abutment and restoration right onto the implant without having to surgically expose the dental implant again.

4. Subperiosteal Dental Implants:

Implants are placed into the jaw bone and the metal post is exposed to hold the restoration. These types of dental implants are most often performed in the single-stage treatment. 

Implant surgery is a three-step process:

  1. First, a dentist surgically places an implant directly into the jawbone, positioned like a natural tooth root (Root Canal). The implant will usually remain covered for three to six months to allow bone to develop around the implant to help hold it in place.

  2. Once bone has developed, the dentist uncovers the implant and attaches an extension, called a post. The surrounding gum tissue then needs to heal — a process that typically takes several more months.

  3. Once healing is complete, the implant is ready to serve as a foundation for the new tooth. The dentist makes a crown (or other artificial tooth replacement) and attaches it to the implant post.

The entire process can take five to nine months to complete, depending on the patient’s situation and speed of healing. Dentists typically give specific instructions on how to care for dental implants. It is important to follow these instructions carefully.

Additional factors to consider:

1. Recovery time and Risks:  Placing an implant is often easier than taking a tooth out and is usually performed using a simple local anaesthetic, injected into the surrounding gum. You will not feel any pain at the time but, just like after an extraction, you may feel some discomfort during the week after the surgery.

How well you look after your implants and whether you go for your regular maintenance appointments, will have the biggest impact on how long they will last.

If you don't look after your implants they will develop a coating similar to what you get on neglected natural teeth. Left untreated, this can lead to gum infection, bleeding, soreness and general discomfort. You could get all these problems with natural teeth.

If your implants are well looked after, and if the bone they are fitted to is strong and healthy, you can expect them to last for many years. However, just as with other surgical implants (such as a hip replacement) there is no lifetime guarantee.

2. Patient reviews often highlight the confidence boost achieved over the physical appearance.

3. Success rate: Having good general health, healthy gums and sufficient bone structure makes you a good candidate for implants. Depending on the location in the mouth, implants are usually between 85 and 90% successful over the long-term.

Implants may be less successful for people who smoke, grind or clench teeth or have a history of radiation therapy. Patients with diabetes or osteoporosis who have bone loss in the jaw may also be at risk for complications. Check with your dentist to see if implants are the right choice for you.  When implants fail, it is usually because of poor oral hygiene, resulting in infection or impaired healing. Overloading or too much pressure on the implant structure (this usually happens when you grind your teeth) can cause the implant to move.
