Top 7 Reasons/Benefits to Get Dental Implants in Pune
- To replace one or more missing teeth without grinding down adjacent teeth.
- To prevent bone loss.
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth spaces.
- To restore your confident smile.
- Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
- Restore or enhance facial appearance.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them secure and comfortable.
Advantages of Dental Implants over Teeth Supported Bridges or Removable Dentures.
Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth. An implant is the most natural, cost-effective, and least invasive way to replace missing teeth.
Teeth implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because the neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered the best option for tooth replacement. A bridge or partial denture will have to be replaced many times in your life, costing much more in the long-term, whereas your implants will last you a lifetime once done and maintained properly.

In the following section we’ll answer the question,
“What does a dental implant procedure involve?”
For an ease of explanation, the section is divided into 3 broad categories that you may fall into.
Missing One Tooth
A single dental implant at our clinic in Pune is a very common and regular procedure in our practice which can be used to replace any missing or damaged tooth in your mouth. It is the most natural, cost-effective, least-invasive and a long-term tooth replacement treatment.
This procedure normally includes one to four visits. Here is a more detailed description of the procedure to replace your single missing tooth using a dental implant. The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.
Before the procedure:
An examination and one or more X-rays of the area are made to prepare for the procedure and diagnose your unique situation. The area will be checked carefully for any signs of bone or gum loss. If required a CBCT scan may be advised.
Placing the implant:
During the implant surgery, a precise preparation is made in the bone where the implant is fitted. This is done under Local anaesthesia because of which you won’t feel a thing of the procedure. Because we use precision driven methods, you will not feel any pain during the surgery or later during the healing phase. After the implant is placed in the jaw bone, a temporary tooth may be provided for front teeth that will allow you to eat and function like normal, almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.
Attaching the new crown:
The final step is the placement of the final ceramic tooth which can be cemented or screwed in place. To do that we take the measurement of the implant in the jaw in relation to the surrounding teeth with the help of our 3 Shape intra oral scanner. That digital measurement is used by the dental laboratory to manufacture a beautifully crafted bespoke artificial tooth to be fixed onto your implant.
You can expect the new tooth to feel fit, and function just like a natural tooth. You would need to do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gums around it clean and healthy.
Consult our office to find out what the best solution for you is, given your specific condition.
Missing All Teeth
When all teeth are missing or need to be replaced, full mouth teeth implants are the best permanent solution. Before dental implants, there were no solutions available for people who lost all their teeth besides full dentures. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge or implant over-denture that results in a permanent, stable and highly functional & aesthetic solution. In fact, dental implants have been used to replace dentures since 1965!
Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants:
- Let you eat and function like having natural teeth.
- Are a solid, stable solution that will serve you for many years.
- Preserve your facial appearance and prevent bone loss.
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, a few visits should be enough to have the entire procedure completed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. The course of treatment described here is the general way in which most of the options are carried out.
Before the Procedure:
We determine what needs to be done by performing a very thorough exam. A panoramic X-ray will also be taken. In some cases, a CBCT or “CAT” scan may be necessary to evaluate your bone on a computer.
Placing the Implants:
The first step is placing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. Temporary teeth may be attached that would enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.
After about a minimum of 2 or more months, the final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, natural appearance and chewing function are restored.
Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed implant bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.
Consult our office to find out what the best solution for you is, given your specific condition.
Now coming back to the question: Are dental implants painful?
The answer is ‘generally no’. It’s not an ‘absolute no’ because there may be some discomfort involved in few rare scenarios, though which can be easily countered with regular pain medications. As far as Smilekraft Dentistry is concerned, we take care to cause as minimal discomfort as humanely possible, from the start till the end of the procedures. To start with, the anaesthesia we use, is injected with special techniques which causes least discomfort. After that, the procedure is absolutely painless. Later since we use the Waterlase laser and the non contact digital technology for teeth measurement, the second stage teeth fabrication procedures cause the least discomfort as compared to any other implant dental clinic performing it with their respective techniques.
Do dental implants hurt after placement or when in function? Are they safe for me? Do dental implants have any side effects?
Dental implants should never hurt when in function or after placement and complete healing. Rather you never feel a dental implant in the jaws. If done and maintained properly, you would never feel or even be able to see your dental implant. Dental implants are not connected with any nerve to the jaws. Thus they can never be painful. They may only hurt if something is wrong with them. That unfortunately is when they are about to fail. Although, such failures are rare (about 2-3%), pain during failure is further a distant possibility. Most of the times if an implant fails, it simply loosens from the bone without you feeling a thing.
Considering safety, they are absolutely safe and predictable to be used in the human body. Scientifically they don’t have any bad side effects. They only come with positive outcomes which are already mentioned above. Although, if you are the one to consider the worst case scenario, then the only loss that you may encounter would be an implant loss similar to your original tooth loss. That’s it, you would be back to how it started before the treatment. Since titanium dental implants are the most bio-compatible materials to be used they will never cause any side effects and function for you the whole of your life.
Now coming to the most important question according to few,
How much do dental implants cost? What is their maintenance like and any recurrent costs?
The dental treatment charges at Smilekraft Dentistry are all mentioned on the page: Fees & Cost Analysis
But to just give an idea, it may range anything between Rs. 15,000/- to Rs. 35,000/- for various implant systems we use at our clinic mentioned on the link above. This would be the first stage surgery cost. The second stage of fixing the artificial tooth or crown would cost you another Rs. 15,000/- to Rs. 25,000/-. This is for a standard single implanted tooth .
The cost for several missing teeth or full jaw rehabilitations with full jaw implants are generally a multiplication of the number of implants used. There may be some additional charges for the surgeries involving bone grafting, bone manipulation, usage of specialized implant attachments,etc. which may be advised as required.
These are normally one time costs. If done and maintained properly dental implants are supposed to last you a lifetime. Thus, at Smilekraft Dentistry, we don’t charge our patients any regular maintenance charges that are involved with healthy dental implants.(know more about this)
Since all dental implants at Smilekraft Dentistry come with a lifetime replacement warranty, any surgical or healing failure is repeated free of cost if a similar implant is used back again. There may be some additional charges of bone grafting if required, or if a different implant system is used as demanded by the situation. In situations, where the teeth undergo heavy wear and tear, you may need to change the artificial teeth only and not the implants. That may probably happen in years which will be chargeable as required.
Home maintenance of dental implants involves your regular home care of brushing twice and flossing once at night. You only need to take care of the part that these are totally artificial teeth. Unlike regular teeth you would never feel anything when something is stuck around them. Thus an extra visual care needs to be taken to clean around them.
