cosmetic dentist Caledon FAQ'S ABOUT TREATMENT INVOLVING DENTAL IMPLANTS
 
1) What is a dental implant & what is it made of ?

A dental implant is a tooth root replacement that is secured to the jaw by means of a surgical procedure. The dental implant functions much like the root of a tooth, as it serves to anchor and support replacement teeth. Dental implants are usually made from Titanium or its’ alloy.


2) Are there any side effects from the Titanium in dental implants ?

Titanium has been used in surgery for many years. Rejection and toxicity appears to be extremely rare.


3) What is the success rate of dental implant treatment ?

The 10 year success rate of dental implant treatment in the anterior mandible is over 90% . Individual success rates vary according to many factors including the amount and quality of bone into which the dental implants are placed. Dr. Svoboda will discuss this with you according to your individual health condition and treatment requirements.


4) How many kinds of dental implants are on the market ?

There are many dental implant manufacturers in the world. In Canada many brands of dental implants are commonly used by dental practitioners. All of these available brands of titanium implants seem to work, but can vary in shape, surface texture, attachment components and cost. Dr. Svoboda often uses a single stage implant that usually requires only one surgical procedure.


5) How long will your dental implant last ?

Over 30 years of scientific documentation and millions of implant treatments demonstrate an impressive success rate. The success of your dental treatment “overall” is expected to improve significantly with the addition of dental implants. Your continued health and compliance with implant maintenance and good oral hygiene will directly affect the treatment outcome. However, as with any medical intervention or surgery, it is not possible to determine an individual’s treatment outcome in advance. The implant dentist cannot make any assurances of treatment success to any individual.


6) What happens when dental implants fail ?

A failed dental implant will usually become loose & uncomfortable when pressure is applied. The failed implant can often be easily removed by your implant dentist and a new dental implant placed in the same implant site either immediately or at a later date. At
times, implant failure can result in infection and adjacent tissue loss. It is important to place a sufficient number of implants to adequately support the replacement teeth.


7) What are the medical requirements for dental implant surgery ?

Dental implant surgery is often minor. In general, if you are healthy enough to have teeth extracted, you are healthy enough to undergo dental implant surgery. More extensive involving many implants and bone addition procedures can be more complicated and demanding. Dr. Svoboda will discuss this issue with you.


8) How much pain is involved in dental implant surgery ?

Pain perception is a very personal thing and it differs to a great extent amongst individuals. Most people can manage their post-surgical discomfort with oral medication such as Tylenol #3 over 2 or 3 days. Other medications are available as well.


9) How much time will I have to take off work ?

Most people recover in a few days. Many factors, including the complexity of the surgery, can affect your healing time. The implant placement can often be done on a Friday, allowing the weekend for recovery. Dr. Svoboda will discuss your expected recovery time with you. Infection can lengthen your healing time.


10) Do I have to go without teeth when undergoing dental implant treatment ?

All treatment is customized to meet your needs. Temporary teeth can often be placed into your mouth immediately after surgery. More extensive treatments may require you to leave your dentures out for several days. A soft diet is usually necessary following more extensive surgery.


11) What are the potential risks and/or complications of dental implant surgery ?

The most common complications of any surgery involve post-surgical pain, bleeding, swelling and possible infection. However, during your consultation Dr. Svoboda will be able to discuss these & other possible complications particular to your treatment. Dr. Svoboda will also discuss ways to minimize these risks.
Dental Imaging of the proposed implant site can help minimize risk of damage to important anatomical structures. Dr. Svoboda has Special Tomographic Imaging equipment to help reduce surgical risks.


12) Do You need one implant to support each tooth ?

An implant can support either a single tooth or several teeth. Missing back teeth often need more implants to support them than missing front teeth since biting forces are greater in the back of the mouth. It is important to place enough implants to support the bite. This increases the long-term success of your implant treatment. Of course, increasing the number of implants also effects cost. Let Dr. Svoboda advise you on the number of implants to use in your treatment.


13) If I have tooth/teeth that are loose, can dental implants be put into the extraction site immediately ?

In some cases, it is best to place the implant into a fresh extraction site. Immediate implant placement can significantly shorten treatment time and preserve bone. However, if there is extensive infection or bone loss, it may be necessary to allow the jaw-bone to heal prior to implant placement. Temporary teeth can be used to replace missing teeth and professional cleanings can be used to increase tissue health prior to implant placement. Dr. Svoboda will help guide your treatment choices.


14) How long will dental implant treatment take from “Start to Finish? ?

Typically, total treatment time will be around 5 months. If bone addition procedures are required to increase bone volume, additional time may be necessary. Complexity of treatment also increases treatment time. Replacement of failed implants and some cosmetic considerations may also extend treatment time. Dr. Svoboda will discuss expected treatment time with you.


15) Does the Ontario Health Plan cover the cost of dental implant
treatment ?

NOT usually. Some dental insurance plans may cover some aspects of your treatment. Dental treatment is considered a “Medical Expense” on your income tax form (speak to your tax consultant). A health & welfare trust account may reduce your over-all cost significantly—Dr. Svoboda is happy to give you a brochure with this type of information.


16) Are there any payment plans available ?

YES. Since most dental implant treatments take time to complete, it is possible to “pay as you go” or receive a 5% reduction by prepaying your expected treatment costs.


17) How much will a personal consultation cost and what is included ?

Dr. Svoboda offers a NO-COST consultation service. This consultation involves a brief clinical evaluation and discussion of treatment options and their usual cost. This consultation service is intended to allow you to investigate your treatment options without further obligation. A Panoramic x-ray is usually helpful for this consultation. Ask receptionist for current cost of this x-ray. An examination & diagnostic procedures will be completed prior to any implant treatment. This service will be followed by a discussion of treatment options and a written estimate of the treatment selected.


18) Where can I find more information about Dental Implants ?

There are many fine sources for information about this subject on the internet and in books. An internet source is www.aaid-implant.org. For others - just type “dental implant” into the search engine and you will be able to view information from around the world. Two recent books for consumers include “As Good As New” by Charles A. Babbush DDS, MScD, The Dental Implant Center Press, Lyndhurst, Ohio and “A Patient’s Guide to Dental Implants” by Thomas Balshi DDS et al., Addicus Books, Omaha, Nebraska, www.AddicusBooks.com. Dr. Svoboda encourages you to gather the information you need prior to initiating your dental treatment. He is happy to give you his opinion about any matter relating to your dental care.


19) How is treatment involving Dental Implants delivered in Canada ?

There are some General and Specialist Dentists such as Oral Surgeons, Periodontists, Prosthodontists and Endodontists, that place Dental Implants and often perform tissue augmentation procedures to enhance results. There are some General and Specialist Dentists that attach teeth to Dental Implants. There are some General and Specialist Dentists such as Oral Radiologists, Prosthodontists & Oral Surgeons that take the special x-rays required for treatment planning. There are some General and Specialist Dentists such as Periodontists that look after patients after implant treatment is complete.



Today, there are many ways to effectively deliver the benefits of implant treatment. Some of the above clinicians & Dr. Svoboda form temporary teams of various sizes to provide implant treatment. These teams can involve several dentists, physicians & others. While Dr. Svoboda usually provides implant treatment from “Start to Finish”, he also refers patients back to their regular dentists for professional care after his treatment is complete. Sometimes, Dr. Svoboda also refers patients to his talented colleagues when their special skills are required to enhance treatment results.
