Dental Implant Clinic

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthesis (replacement teeth) that are made to match your natural teeth. Tooth implants are manufactured from biologically neutral pure titanium that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.

At BIDH dental implant clinic, we are one of the first and few dental providers in bangkok with our own fully digital dental implant laboratory. Our labs customize implant abutments as well as all ceramic zirconia crowns and bridges over implants to provide you with natural-looking results.

Restoration Implants Types

Dental implants may be used to replace single, multiple or a full edentulous jaw. Combinations of implants with crown, bridges, dentures or hybrid prosthese are placed over implant posts to permanently replace missing teeth.

Single Tooth Missing
  • The single tooth implant restoration consists of three parts. Namely, the implant post which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself. The crown is either cemented onto the abutment or held in place with a screw.
  • With today’s developments, there are a variety of implant systems, models and ranges available. Each line catering to the individualized needs of patients.
  • A single tooth implant with crown is one of the best permanent restorations. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
  • Implant crown

Multiple Tooth Missing
  • If multiple teeth are missing in different parts of the mouth, several single tooth implants are good replacement restorations.
  • If multiple teeth are missing within the same region, several missing teeth can sometimes be replaced with fewer implants because dental implants are stronger than the natural tooth roots. This solution includes having implant fixed bridges done.
  • An implant fixed bridge is very much like a conventional bridge except the support is actually over implants rather than natural teeth. The implants themselves act as man-made roots. A great advantage is that this is that it is self-supporting unlike conventional tooth-supported bridges that puts a heavier load on the remaining teeth.
  • Implant bridge
  • Multiple implant crown

All Teeth Missing

When all teeth are missing or in a condition that all teeth need to be replaced, there are several full arch implant reconstructions options:

  • Fixed bridges anchored to dental implants
  • Removable implant dentures
  • Fixed hybrid implant dentures (All-on-4 & All-on-6)
  • Fixed zygomatic implants + hybrid implant dentures

With fixed bridges anchored to dental implants, this option provides a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution similiar to having a new set of teeth again.

Implant-supported dentures allow you to wear full dentures (overdentures) without worrying that they will slip or fall out. The implants retend dentures and the base of the denture can be made much smaller and more comfortable.

All-on-4 and zygoma implants are immediate function implants whereby a fixed hybrid denture is fitted over implant post almost immediate after implant post placement.

  • Implant-supported dentures
  • Implant full bridge
  • All-on-4 Implant hybrid denture

Types of Dental Implants

We classify implants types at our dental implant clinic into 3 basic cateogries – conventional implants, immediate function that may be followed with immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediate loaded implants. The type of dental implants selected will be dependent on your specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan is usually required to evaluate the amount of bone, determine the space available and for a thorough examination to diagnosing the options best suited for each case.

Conventional tooth implants
Conventional Implants

Dental Implant Questions

Is there discomfort involved in dental implant procedures?

Just as with any surgery, there can be some slightly discomfort. However, anesthetic and pain-controlled medications are used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. Approximately 95 percent of patients report discomfort of 0-2 on a scale of 0-10 the day after the implants are placed. The doctor will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur. Special care will be taken to stay in contact with you after the surgery to be sure that you remain comfortable. 

How long does it the treatment take?

Most dental implant treatment now takes an average around 2 months (or 6 to 8 weeks) to complete. For complex cases with bone grafts, it could still take up to 6 months.

Nowadays, with immediate function temporary prosthese and one day implants, treatment timings are been cut short to just a week. For such cases, you have a new set of teeth almost instantly. Do however note that many immediate function treatment may still require you to change temporary prosthese to a more permament set after complete healing during future periods.

How long can I expect to be off work?

Generally, we recommend the day of and the following day after surgery, that no strenuous exercise be done. Taking time off work is normally not necessary for a single tooth replacement case because the procedure is not more complex than a tooth extraction. The amount of time off you may like to take is an individual decision that you can enquire with your implant dentist.

For all jaw case that is more invasive, you may feel sore for the first few days. If immediate function prosthese is opted, the framework is normally fitted the next day or 2 days later. Please do consult with your implant dentist on the time off required as this may vary with the implant methodology, technique and individual condition.

Is there a chance of rejection?

Your body does not normally reject a dental implant, as with a soft tissue transplant such as a lung, heart or kidney. Dental implants are typically made of titanium that is proven to be biocompatible. Titanium actually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the body. This does not mean that an implant cannot fail, but it would be due to other factors, such as improper force on the implant, existing diseases, poor oral hygiene or other conditions. 

Who is a candidate for implants?

Anyone who is missing one or more (even all) of their teeth may be a candidate for implants. If one or a few of the teeth are missing, implants in conjunction with a crown or bridge can replace those teeth and function as normal teeth without losing more bone and being subject to decay.

If all or most of your teeth are missing, then implants may be placed to anchor a loose denture. Sometimes, if there is already some bone loss, bone can be added and regenerated or a technique called bone expansion can be used to create a more ideal site for the implant(s). Ultimately, a consultation with a dentist who is knowledgable on these procedures can help determine your individual needs.

What can happen with missing teeth without treatment?

When you lose your teeth, you gradually lose the bone that supported them. As this bone disappears, problems with other teeth nearby and a lack of support for dentures, partials and bridges increase. These could include pain, mobility, lack of retention for prosthetics, sharp, painful ridges, mobile gum tissue and sore spots. 

The tongue enlarges to accommodate spaces of missing teeth. With tooth loss, a five-fold decrease in function occurs and the diet shifts to softer foods. Also, when bone is lost, numbness to the lower lip or even the possibility of fracture of the jaw rises. 

Since the bone is deteriorating, it will spread and deteriorate around healthy teeth and ultimately cause the loss of those teeth smiliar to a domino effect. This progresssion affects the ability to provide the same treatment in the later stages of bone loss than if treatment had been started earlier in the process. It’s much better to replace a tooth BEFORE these side effects occur. A patient risks the possibility of not being able to provide the same, simple type of treatment that would have been possible earlier if treatment is delayed.
