Dental Implants at The Ivory Dental Clinic in Thailand

Dental Implants in Bangkok Thailand

Dental Implant Dentistry

If you’re living with ill-fitting dentures, or on the brink of needing tooth replacement, dental implants provide the security your smile needs. These are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the space left by a missing tooth. After placement, the implants fuse with the jawbone for unsurpassed stability. In addition to providing your new teeth with a perfect fit, dental implants improve overall oral health. Our bones need stimulation to thrive and the tooth’s root provides that activity for the jawbone. Without it, the mouth will slowly degenerate and change shape – but the dental implant acts as a prosthetic root to keep your jaw healthy, whole and youthful-looking for years to come. In fact, when cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime. Many dental offices can only provide a portion of the dental implant procedure. But at The Ivory Dental Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand, your dentist can handle the entire process, from the initial teeth implants to the final restoration, under one roof — no outside referrals necessary.


What Will Happen to the Bone After Tooth Extraction?

After losing teeth, there will be vertically and horizontally resorption of socket bones. The resorption is more pronounced on the buccal side (cheek side) than on the lingual side (palate and tongue side) and more pronounced at the anterior region than at the posterior ones due to thinner bone wall. Excess bone resorption of the buccal plate will affect patient’s lip profile in the anterior region. Inadequate remaining bone also affect implant placement which lead to more complicated treatments. In the long run, placing an implant helps preserve remaining bone structure and prevent further bone resorption at the area. Please note that some parts of the socket bone will be inevitably resorbed as a natural process of bone healing.  Placing an implant can preserve the remaining parts.


Benefits of Dental Implant Treatment in Bangkok, Thailand

  1. Preserve intact tooth structure
  2. Preserve remaining bone

  4. Alternative treatment to conventional fixed prostheses


Types of Implant Placement

There are 4 types of dental implant, classified according to the implantation timing*

  1. Immediate placement
  2. Early placement
  3. Delayed placement
  4. Late placement

*Based on 3rd International Team for Implantology (ITI) Consensus Conference
**Please note that timing and treatment planning will be discussed with the patient on a case by case basis.


Types of Dental Implant Restoration

  1. One implant can replace one missing tooth (Single tooth implant)
  2. Implants replace multiple missing teeth (Dental Bridge implants)
  3. Implants replace a full mouth missing teeth (Full jaw dental implants, Overdenture, All on 4)


Conventional Single Dental Implant Procedure

  1. Diagnosis with CT-Scan (3D image X-RAY) and treatment planning
  2. Dental implant post placement (extraction of natural tooth on the same day in some cases)
  3. Wait 3 months for the bone to heal
  4. Prosthesis (dental crown/dental bridge) process.

This will require 2 trips with a 3 month break in between. Each trip requires a 5-7 day stay.


Full Jaw Dental Implant Procedure

  1. Diagnosis with CT-Scan (3D image X-RAY) and treatment planning
  2. Prosthesis preparation process
  3. Dental implant post placement and final prosthesis

We can complete full jaw dental implants in one trip with 14 day stay.


Post Operative Care

  1. Avoid hot food.
  2. No rigorous exercise.
  3. Take prescribed medicine.
  4. Remove plaque.
  5. Rinse with chlorhexidine.
  6. Wound healing is normal but if pus occurs, the patient should contact the doctor.
  7. Do not poke the wound.
  8. Use a cold pack to reduce swelling in the first few days.
  9. No smoking or alcohol.


Factors Affecting Dental Implant Treatment

  1. Systemic disease

A. For healthy patients without systemic disease and no pathology of the edentulous site, in some cases implants could be placed immediately and in some cases, implants could be placed after 6-8 weeks of extraction to allow soft tissue healing. For those with pathology in the bone, which causes bone defects, or in cases of infection in the area of future placement, usually the waiting time is longer, around 3-4 months after extraction.

Please note that the timing and treatment plan will be discussed with the patient on a case by case basis.

    • A.It is possible to have an implant placed, but it might need a bone graft to reconstruct the bone for implant placement. Also, alternative treatments such as bridges or other types of prostheses can be considered.
    • A.

1.Uncontrolled diabetes, which affects wound healing.

2.Uncontrolled high blood pressure.

3.Osteoporosis which required Biphosphonate intravenous treatment for more than 3 years.

4.Cancer in the craniofacial area, and currently undergoing radiotherapy.

5.Heavy smokers, especially those smoking around 20 cigarettes a day. Smoking cessation should be done before treatment.

6.Pregnant patients should delay treatment.

7.Patients who take anticoagulants or patients who have had a stroke within 6 months to 1 year should consult a physician before treatment.

8.Patients who take immunosuppressants should consult a physician.

9.Patients with liver disease which lead to unstopped bleeding should consult a physician.

      • A.Any infection in the oral cavity should be removed before implant treatment to avoid the risk of infection at the implant site and failure of the implant.

1.Periodontitis should be treated before placing an implant since patients with a history of periodontitis have a higher risk of implant failure.

2.Caries – infected tooth structure should be removed to reduce oral cavity germs.

3.Endodontics – root canal treatments should be performed since apical infections, especially adjacent to the site in the bone, can infect the implant site.
