Dental Implants – The Most Up To Date Technology And Techniques

Dental implants have become a reliable and standard way of replacing teeth.

Implantology has become so reliable and predictable in the last decade. Long term studies are showing close to 99% success rates.  Newer materiels allow for stronger and more esthetic restorations. At the same time advances make the surgery quick, with minimal discomfort .

One of the most fascinating advances is the ability to “create bone”. Many times, patients have insufficient bone in the upper jaw to place implants. Previously, that meant that there was no way to give them permanent teeth. Most of the time this was due to the sinus cavity having moved down due to the long term lack of teeth. Today we can do a procedure to “lift the sinus” and actually place synthetic bone. This helps the body create new bone, so that we can place dental implants. There are problems with implants as well, such as peri implantitis.

Implants today have changed our ability to give you comfort, esthetics and function. Read below for some more information on what it is all about and the cost of dental implants .

 

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is nothing more than a metal screw that is placed into the jaw bone. It acts as an anchor for a false tooth or a set of false teeth.

What you should know. . .

Many people do not know a heck of a lot about dental implants. In its most simple form, a dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed into the jaw. It is allowed to heal there for a few months for it to fuse with the bone. Then your dentist can build a tooth or set of teeth to replace the teeth that you have lost

In it’s most complex form, a dental implant is placed by a dentist to anchor a tooth or a set of teeth in a very specific and technological manner. The exact position of the implant is critical to the success of the entire procedure. More importantly it is the understanding of prosthodontic principles that make dental implants work.

If you are contemplating implant procedures, read the articles on this site very carefully. They will ensure that you know what to expect from the procedure.

When a dental implant restoration is perfectly constructed, neither the patient or anyone else should have any hint that an implant is there… All people should see is the “tooth”

  1. Hi I am sorry I just got this email.
    The cost of the crown is 4050nis but that does not include the implant post which is 1800nis

  2. Can you do an implant in one sitting and can the cost be paid out. My mom. Judith Cohen is your patient. nd I am going to be in Israel and was just told I need a implant.

    I will be in from jan 18 to jan 22

    Thank you

  3. hi
    the short answer is yes. the real factor is
    do you have enough bone (height and width) which we can only determine by taking a dental CT
    is there an extraction involved? might there be a need for a bone graft?. These are all factors that I cant know till I see a CT.
    Finally I can do the implant in one visit. if you mean though, that you want the crown on the same day, I think that is a mistake. the studies indicate a higher rate of implant failure if that is done

  4. Shalom,
    I suffer from recurrent aphtous stomatitis. Will that prove a hinderance to implantations?

  5. I generally speaking no. i have seen very little literature and no mention of it as a factor for implants

  6. Is it possible to spread the payments of a procedure as it seems I need a lot of work. Thanking you in advance. David

  7. hi david
    of course it is possible to arrange payments. depending on the total amount will determine exactly how many payments and how to do them.

  8. I ONLY HAVE 5 UPPER TEETH. 2 OF THEM SUPPORT A 6 FRONT TEETH BRIDGE AND THE OTHER 3 HAVE CROWNS ON THE TOP OF THEM. THE 2 TEETH THAT SUPPORT THE BRIDGE AND 1 TOOTH FROM THE REMAINED OF THEM STARTED MOVING. THEREFORE, I ONLY HAVE BEEN LEFT WITH 2 ADJOINING GOOD UPPER TEETH. I GUESS I WILL EXTRACT ALL THESE 5 TEETH AND HAVE NO UPPER TEETH AT ALL:
    HOW MANY IMPLANTS I NEED TO PLACE IN THE UPPER JAW IN ORDER:
    1)TO HAVE A REMOVABLE DENTURE ON THE TOP OF THE IMPLANTS?
    2)TO HAVE A PERMANENT SET OF TEETH WITH CROWNS AND BRIDGES ON THE TOP OF THE IMPLANTS?
    3)CAN YOU PLEASE PROVIDE THE TOTAL COST, IN USA DOLLARS, FOR EACH ONE OF THE ABOVE OPTIONS?
    4)ALSO CAN YOU PLEASE PROVIDE THE NUMBER OF TRIPS THAT I WILL HAVE TO MAKE TO ISRAEL, SINCE I WOULD SAY I WILL NEED BONE CRAFT AND OR SOME MONTHS FOR THE IMPLANTS TO HEAL, BEFORE APPLYING LOAD ON TOP OF THEM???

    THANK YOU

  9. Dear Juan,

    Hi,

    I will give you a sense of what needs to be done. Everything is predicated on seeing CT and assuming that you have sufficient bone to place implants
    See the following to explain the process of implant placement.
    http://www.greenspandental.com/en/video-visualization-of-an-implant-placement/

    The removable option.

    Place 4 implants – 1 visit 2-3 days

    Return 8 weeks later for about 7 to 10 days to place the posts on top of the implants and have the denture made and then fit the denture.
    total cost
    4 implants = 14,400 NIS = $3891
    4 posts = 7200 NIS = $1955
    1 Denture = 10000 NIS =$2702

    total 31600 NIS = $8539

    Permanent Teeth option

    6-8 implants to support 14 teeth

    assuming the worst case scenario (that is 8 implants)

    8 implants X4100 NIS= 32,800 NIS =$8864
    8posts X1800 NIS = 14,400= $3891
    14 Porcelain crowns X3950 NIS = 55,300NIS =$14944

    total $27699

    1 visit to place all implants trip of 1-3 days.
    8 weeks later 3-4 visits over a 10 day period in order to get the final finished bridge back

    Bear in mind that there is always the chance we will need a bone graft which is another 2000nis or so. Also depending on the CT we might need to have some sort of temporary made in the lab. One final point. Should you do the removable option and find that you want permanent teeth, then all of the 4 implants placed can be incorporated into the permanent option in the future.

    If I can be of any other help please be in touch . My phone number is 972-2-679-8040

  10. I have the implant post done here in the us and have not done the crown yet.

    the crown while I am there.

  11. I am 72 years Australian lady who had upper teeth removed 20years ago. I find it difficult to keep dentures in for more than 2 hours and only with cement with goes when I eat. If I travel to Israel to visit ur surgery; approximately how much in, $AUD should I allow for 14to16 teeth to be implanted. also how much for bone graft if I have lost too much bone. Thank you Lyndall Croft
