Dental implants are an effective surgical alternative to more traditional smile solutions such as dentures and bridges, and are often a better long-term approach for dental issues. Dental implants are prosthetic devices that are surgically attached to the jawbone, giving patients with missing teeth a permanent solution that avoids the hassle and inconvenience of dentures.
In the past the process of getting dental implants was quite lengthy, taking 3 to 6 months for placement. However, more advanced procedures now allow for same day or immediate load dental implants. This shortens the procedure drastically, and allows people to travel overseas to get dental implants without requiring repeat or lengthy stays. However, many dentists still recommend that patients wait 4 months before the permanent implants are inserted.
Length of the procedure: 15 to 20 minutes per post
Hospital Stay: Dental implants are placed in an outpatient procedure. Recovery before traveling home: Patients seeking dental implants through medical tourism can return home 24 to 48 hours after their procedure in most cases.
Travel Tip: It is best to plan to stay a few days beyond your dental implant procedure. This ensures that care is available to you should a complication arise or rejection of the implant occur.
The procedure will begin with the administration a local anesthetic. The dentist will begin by preparing the socket of the dental implant, which may involve removing the natural tooth and clearing debris from the bone socket. The socket is then drilled with a bone drill to further prepare for the implant.
Once the socket is prepared the dental implant is placed. The implant is tested with a torque wrench to ensure it can withstand force. Next, and abutment is attached to the implant and an x-ray is done to confirm successful implantation. The procedure is finalized with a temporary crown so the patient does not appear toothless while the permanent crown is being made.
After the Procedure
After your dental implant procedure you are released from care immediately. However, you can expect a certain amount of discomfort in the days immediately following the procedure. Side effects after dental implant placement may include swelling of the gums and face, pain at implant site, bruising of skin and gums and minor bleeding.
