Advanced Dental Care Centre is a leading name in the field of Dental Implants in the region. We offer all sorts of major international dental implant systems at our clinic.

A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the roots of missing teeth, and are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Placed in the jawbone surgically, an implant is replacement of missing tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed in case of either permanent or removable teeth. Also known as fixtures, these are meant to match your natural teeth, and can last for a lifetime.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Losing your teeth leads to subsequent dire physical and cosmetic consequences. Not just hampering your natural smile, loss of chewing function or inability to eat properly can even adversely affect your metal makeup. While these are serious issues, a potentially bigger problem lies with risk of bone loss.

It’s not all the gloomy – the good news is that tooth replacement with dental implant offers a great solution to help prevent bone loss. Dental Implants offer many advantages, including but not limited to:

  • Raised self-esteem: one of the biggest advantages of dental implant is that enhances your self-esteem by restoring your smile back
  • Improved oral health: A denture or bridges can serve satisfactory result in case of loss of teeth but implants provide better support and usually results in more comfortable and stable replacement teeth. Without trimming our own natural teeth for support, it offers better efficiency
  • Improved quality of life: dental implants helps your lead a comfortable life while boosting your confidence. It gets rid of you from the fear of misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
  • Durability: Dental implants are very durable and can even last for entire lifetime if taken good care of.
  • Tooth-saving: unlike a bridge, dental implants don’t sacrifice on the quality of your adjacent tooth. Your own teeth are left untouched, which offers a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.

Success rate of dental implants

With success rate of up to 98%, dental implants are highly successful and safe surgical components. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

We, at Advanced Dental Care Centre thoroughly examine to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, the Periodontist create a treatment plan tailored to meet the specific requirement of each individual.

Types of dental implants

Typically made of Titanium, dental implants are mainly of following two types:

  • Endosteal: the most common form, dental implants are placed in the jawbones in case of Endosteal. Typically shaped like small screws, cylinders or plates, each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth.
  • Subperiosteal: these dental implants are placed on, or above the jawbone. These types of dental implants are very beneficial for patients having shallow bones, who are unable to wear conventional dentures.

Who is an implant candidate?

All those who wish to replace their missing teeth, or a single missing tooth, become candidate for dental implant procedure. However, not everybody, is an ideal candidate.

A good candidate should have healthy, disease-free gum tissues the remainder of the teeth and gums need to be stable in order to put in dental implants, which are likely to work. In case a patient is having some oral problems like dental decay, broken teeth or any kind of gum disease then that needs to cured first before going in for the implant procedure.

Healthy but dense jawbone also makes it challenging to place the dental implants. Also, in case of patients lacking the right amount to bone in the right place, grafting techniques can be used alternatively.

It is very important for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean in order to sustain success of the dental implants. So before going in for placement of dental implants, we have to ensure that.

The implant procedure

Dental implant procedure is teamwork between you; your dentist and your periodontist to get you desired results. The first step is to determine how and where your implant should be placed and your dentist and periodontist decide that after consulting with you. Afterwards, a tailor made plan is devised for you, specific to your individual requirements.

The first step in the dental implant procedure is the placement of the titanium. Then a local anaesthetic will make the area numb so that incision process can be carried out. Using special instruments, a socket is created while ensuring that no damage is done to the bone.

After receiving dental implant

Dental implants are like natural teeth hence require the same kind of care. As you care for your own natural teeth, you have to take care of your implant. So it is important to brush and floss regularly. After you receive dental implant, period follow-up visits will be scheduled to closely monitor your implant


A dental implant is a surgical component that is inserted into the jawbone which acts as a substitute for tooth root that is no longer present in the mouth. These fixtures can then be used to fix a permanent single tooth, group of teeth of dentures in the mouth.

We do an in-depth detailed thorough discussion with the patient to help them choose a suitable implant technique and procedure best suited for their individual clinical, functional and aesthetic needs.

We offer all the major dental implant systems or brands at our clinic!


Some key reasons to replace your missing teeth are :

  • Increases your moral and self confidence,
  • prevention of bone loss in the areas where the tooth has been removed,
  • increased ability to eat your food more efficiently,
  • to be able to eat all types of food without worrying that you can’t chew,
  • prevention of occlusal changes,
  • maintenance of your speech.

What are the other treatment options instead of dental implants

Although the intital cost involved in the implant placement procedure seems to be higher than other available choices like bridges or partial dentures, but benefits in the long run are much more.

1.First of all, it saves your adjacent natural healthy teeth from tooth shaving or grinding thus maintaining their health.

2.Also when properly placed and maintained, these implants can last you your lifetime where as the bridges cannot last you your lifetime. The average lifespan clinically of a good bridge is 10.2 years which means you will need to replace it after a number of years.

Types of Dental Implants

There are three basic main of implants

The method and the type of implant selected is dependent mainly upon the general physical condition of the patient, the time required, the quality and quantity of available bone and the area of the mouth where the implant needs to be placed.A clear clinical and xray examination of the patient is required followed by the use of certain advanced diagnostic tests such as DENTASCAN OR CBCT.

Who can go for dental implants?

  • • One can go for dental implants if you have
  • • Heahealthy gums
  • • Good oral hygiene
  • • Good quality and quantity of bone

Dental implants is not a good choice for you if

  • • The patient is still very young as the growth of the jaws is yet to take place.
  • • You smoke very heavily
  • • You have uncontrolled diabetes
  • • You are on long term steroid therapy
  • • Cancer patients


  • Stop the progressive loss of bone that can lead to untimely age changes.
  • better oral health
  • superior Quality Of Life
  • Dental implants help you to chew your food comfortably.
    • • improved facial look
    • • Saves your natural teeth from grinding and hence loss of tooth structure and vitality.
    • • An asset to Your body and mouth

  • • Improved oral health
    When an individual has lost their teeth, usually a denture or bridges can be made. Though bridges and dentures can serve us satisfactorily, Implants provide better support and usually results in more comfortable and stable replacement teeth. It provides better chewing efficiency and allows us to have permanent fixed teeth without trimming our own natural teeth for support, or having to remove the teeth every day. Implants also slow down the shrinkage of our jaw bone which occurs as a result of tooth loss.
  • • Improved Quality Of Life
    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.
  • • Enhanced Appearance
    Dental 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, helping to preserve your natural facial contours. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
  • • Tooth-saving
    Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring te eth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
  • • An Investment In Yourself
    Although dental implants may sometimes have a higher initial cost, when all the ongoing expenses of other treatment options are added up, most people would agree that implants are more than worth it! The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.



The dental implants are inserted into the bone of the jaws. The area is first made numb by injecting local anaesthesia. Then a small incision is given on the gums, the implants site osteotomy is made with the help of special implant placement drills, and the implant is then gently inserted. Nowadays, implants can be placed by a flapless technique also where no incision of the gums is required. Placement of single implant takes usually less than half an hour’s time. Multiple implants can take two to three hours especially if bone augmentation techniques are also required to be done.
After the implants are inserted into the jawbone, ne requires to wait for minimum 3-6 months to allow the implant to heal and unite with the bone by a process called as osseointegration. Sometimes, if the clinical conditions permit, immediate loading implants can also be done.


1. Replacing a Single Tooth




Replacing Several Teeth



  • 1.These have the advantage of preserving the surrounding natural teeth and also prevent bone resorption in the area where the natural teeth have been removed.
  • 2.Impants work like your natural teeth, prevent any visible defects that become obvious after the bone in the area of missing teeth shrinks down over a period of time giving it an unaesthetic ook and also this loss encourages food lodgement in the defect.
  • 3.Also the cement in the areas on crowns around natural teeth can become leaky over a period of time causing the decay of the natural teeth underneath the crowns that support missing teeth leading to further damage of those supporting teeth.

Replacing all missing Teeth – Implant Overdentures

An implant overdenture or an implant bridge or an hybrid bridge can help to replace all the missing teeth.


  • 1. More aesthetic and have better function.
  • 2.Can last you your lifetime.
  • 3. Better mastication
  • 4. Preservation of bone
  • 5. Better hygienically
  • 6. Better comfort and stability.



This procedure requires the placement of six to eight implants in either upper or the lower jaw and then implant supported fixed bridges with 12 – 14 teeth are given on the top.

Option 2: Implant Overdentures

Minimum 2 implants in the lower jaw and 4 implants in the upper jaw are required tobe placed and then implant overdentures are fabricated which are fixed but can be removed by the patient.

Option 3: Hybrid dentures

This is a combination of bridge and a denture. This assembly contains a metal framework and teeth over the top with holes in the metal framework through which the final prosthesis is screwed on to the top of the implants. Minimum six implants are required to be placed in each jaw. .


Teeth in an hour

Advanced Dental Care Center, Chandigarh , India has been ding one stage immediate load dental implants since the time this technique was invented.

New innovations in dental implantology

One stage immediate load dental implants technique is a boon for the patients who do not want to be without the teeth even for a single day. This procedure however requires good quality and quantity of bone.

Who is eligible for same day implants?

The patients with good quality and quantity of boe are excellent candidates. Also the patients who do not want to undergo extensive ad elaborate bone grafting procedures benefit a lot from this procedure especially in the upper jaw where extensive and complicated procedures like open sinus lift can be avoided because of the use of this technique.
With this new revolutionary technique, one can have both the implants and the functioning teeth in just one day.

'Teeth-In-An-hour' from NOBEL BIOCARE

We at Advanced Dental Care Center, Chandigarh, India are happy to inform you that we have been practicing this technique from many years successfully.
In this system, a special computer guided software system is used to plan the surgery as well as the final prosthesis or teeth well in adavance before the surgery itself. Pretreatment scans of the patient are used for the planning phase.Special TI-UNITE surface coated implants are used which promote much faster andstronger healing with the bone.
The pre surgical drills as well as the final crowns come with the package.
The patient can leave the dental office on the same day with both the implants well inserted as well as the functional fixed teeth.



Comparison of dental implant placement in immediate vs conventional implants


Explanation of the procedure

First primary clinical evaluation of the patient followed by the dentascan is done to have a 3D picture of the patient’s quality and quantity of the bone.

The Planning Stage

A special computerized software is then used to determine the most appropriate sites in the patient’s jaws where the implants should be inserted.

The Branemark Guide

After the initial treatment planning stage is done, the results determined are transferred to the Sweden with NOBEL BIOCARE team where special surgical guide/stent is fabricated which is used at the time of placement of the implants. Final prosthesis or teeth are also manufactured simultaneously that can be placed or connected to the implants at the same time.

Time Required

The whole treatment can usually be completed in three weeks time comfortably.


Who can benefit from Teeth In An Hour procedure?

Dental healthiness, number of teeth concerned and kind of teeth to be reinstate will decide if the patient is a entrant for the one-hour implant system. Fine bone quality is necessary in any implant case but particularly with the Teeth-In-A-Hour procedure. Particularly the dentist will look if there is any infection in bone or recent extraction done. Extractions have to be done at least 2 months before and if bone-grafting is needed, to improve bone quality, must be completely incorporated at the time of surgery.
Teeth-In-An-Hour on the whole significantly profits patients whose teeth are slack and hideous, but because of dread have uncared for dental treatment. These patients get pleasure from the elimination of decay and bacteria from their mouths as well as the joy of new self-worth. Few candidates consist of patients who have strived with wearing dentures, patient who have undergone bone loss through periodontal disease, some with inborn absent teeth.
For both replacing a solo lost tooth or a full arch, our qualified squad takes pride in bestowing every patient with a well, lively, and rewarding smile.



These are the small implants that are used to make the conventional removable dentures stable that are otherwise lose , do not fit properly and cause a lot of irritation and discomfort to the patient.
These implants are very small in diameter( almost 1.8 mm ) and are very easily placed in the jawbone. These are recommended for the patients who do not want to undergo the long process of conventional full sized implants and wait for six months before they can become comfortable.These are a boon for the patients who are tired of the dentures that do not fit well and pop ut from the mouth every now and then.
These implants offer a great improvement in the patients ability to chew food, to smile freely and to speak freely without being tense.
The procedure is very simple. The beauty of the entire procedure is that it can be completed in a relatively short period of time and many of the times patient’s existing denture can itself be used. There is no need to remake a new denture except if the patient’s clinical condition does not permit the use of old dentures or they are too old and ill-fitting.



These are very long implants that are inserted into the upper jaw of the patient in the area of zygomatic bone at an angle of 45 degrees and emerge in the mouth at level of dental ridge. Usually two ZYGOMA implants are placed one on each side and two conventional iplants are laced in the middle.
These implants are a very good choice for patients who toehrwise have been refused as an implant candidate by the doctor because of excessive bone loss in the upper jaw or the patients who do not want to undergo extensive sinus lift and bone grafting procedures in the upper jaw or where such procedures cannot be performed.
Bone grfating procedures also have their own set of complications and may not be successful in every patient. These implants can be used to support both removable and fixed teeth.



Advanced Dental Care Center, Chandigarh, India offers the following types of bone grafting procedures.
  • 1. Sinus Lift
  • 2. Block Bone Grafting
  • 3. Bone Expansion
  • 4. Nerve Repositioning
  • 5. Guided Tissue Regeneration
  • 6. Ridge modification

Bone Grafting is required in the cases where the supporting bone where the dental implants need to be inserted has either become resorbed because of gum diseses or has been lost due to disuse atrophy of the bone form where the teeth have been removed a long time ago. In such cases , the bone has to be reconstructed sothat it is sufficient in quantity for the good sized implants to be inserted in the bone.
Even socket preservation techniques are being used nowadays at the time of removing the teeth which means that when a tooth is extracted, synthetic bone graft material is inserted in the empty socket to minimize the loss of bone due to bone remodeling.
Pretreatment 3D scans are very helpful in determining the exact position and volume of the bone so that your treating doctor can thoroughly evaluate well in advance if and where the bone grafting procedures are required. Many candidates in the past who were refused as implant candidates can now be given dental implants with these advanced techniques.


Sinus Lift

The roots of our upper teeth mainly the back ones are in very close vicinity of Maxillary Sinus. Sometimes when the teeth are extracted prematurely because of any reason and are not then replaced for quite some time, this Maxillary sinus tends to shrink away because there is no tooth or a root to hold that empty cavity. In such cases it is not possible to place implants because of lack of sufficient bone height.
The procedure used to increase or augment the height of the bone in that area is called as sinus lift. It can be either a direct (open )sinus lift procedure or an indirect (closed ) sinus lift procedure.

Indications for sinus ift procedure are where bone may be less because of the following factors.

  • 1.Small jaw size and large sinus
  • 2.Gum disease
  • 3.Bone resorption due to long standing tooth removal
  • 4.Bone loss due to surgical tooth removal or the presence of an anamolus condition like a tumour or a cyst.


This is relatively simple technique. Here the osteotomy site is first drilled upto the available bone height. Then special surgical instruments called osteotomes are placed inside the osteotomy site in increasing width and length and then slowly tapped to lift the sinus membrane, bone graft is then placed and an increase in the available bone height is achieved. The minimum height of the bone required for an indirect sinus lift procedure to be performed is 4-5 mm.


Sequential steps in indirect sinus augmentation technique

Direct / Open sinus lift procedure

In this procedure, a window ismade surgically in the area of the upper jaw or the maxillary bone where the implant needs to be placed. After the window is drilled surgically,and the bone plate removed from that area, one can see the lining and wall of the sinus. This is then elevated gently with the help of special sinus lift curved instruments, the osteotomy site is then gently drilled from below sequentially the elevated sinus lining is hed in place with the instruments, and a good quality bone graft is then packed in the area and the site closed. Depending upon the exisiting available bone, a decision is made as to pace the implant simultaneously along with the open sinus lift procedure or later after a healing period of six months.

Block bone grafting technique

In the cases of excessive loss of bone either in the maxilla or mandible, sometimes the ususal synthetic grafts cannot be used. In these extreme cases, block bone rafting procedure is used which means that a a block of autogenous bone is harvested from the patient’s own body. It can be either from The maxilla like the tuberosity region or the mandible in the area of posterior ramus or anterior part of the mandible.In more extreme cases, the graft may need tobe harvested more radically from either the iliac crest or from the knee. is where a block of bone is cut out of one area and screwed into the area where the dental implants will be placed. It takes minimum 4-6 months of healing time for autogenous block bone grafts to unite with the existing natural bone.


Bone Expansion

This is another technique to increase the bone width. Here the bone is expanded mechanically and the dental implant is then placed.


This technique is used in severely atrophic lower back jaw where the implants need to be placed in the area of first and second molars. This technique is used to reposition inferior alveolar nerve. The uter porion of the cheek bone is removed, this nerve is isolated, slightly pulled to the side , implants are inserted and then the nerve is position back over the implants and the area is closed along with the placement of synthetic bone graft.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided bone regeneration or GTR is a procedure used in dentistry where the connective tissue membranes are placed in the bone socket to prevent the development of gingival soft tissue into the operated site so that it does not interfere with the bone growth. This technique is also called as regeneration of PDL( periodontal ligament ). The rationale of this treatment lies in the fact that the growth of the bone is much slower compared to the growth of softer gum tissue. The adavantage of placing this barrier is that it pushes the gum tissue away from the surgical site and promotes bone healing to fill the operated area without any interference or obstruction from overlying gum tissue.

Ridge Modification

Sometimes there is a defect in the bone like the bone can be concave in one area as a result of traumatic tooth extraction or the fracture of buccal, lingual or palatal plates at the time of tooth removal. These type of defects can now bw corrected with the help of ridge modification techniques. only does this deformity cause problems in placing the implant, it can also cause an unattractive indentation in the jaw line near the missing teeth that may be difficult to clean and maintain.

Types of Bone Grafting Materials

  • • Autograft or autogenous bone graft
  • • Allograft or allogenic bone graft
  • • Xenograft or xenogenic bone graft
  • • Alloplast or alloplastic bone graft
  • • Growth Factors

The indications of different types of bone materials varies depending upon the case and clinical and surgical requirements of the patient.

How much time is required for the healing after the Bone Grafting procedure?

It can be between 3-9 months.

Gingival (Gum) Grafting

If gum downturn is impinging your health or your appearance, a method called gingival (gum) grafting can be suggested. Even though it might sound daunting, a range of gum grafting procedures are usually executed by periodontists (consultant in the area of gingival tissue), and by several general dentists with specific succession in this field.


Gum Tissue Graft: Why it’s needed and what to Expect?

Gum recession is the process in which the tissue that environs the teeth drags away from a tooth, revealing more of the tooth or the root of tooth. This can bring about damage to supporting bone. Gum recession is a general dental problem; it has an effect on 4% to 12% of adults and often goes overlooked until it grows to be more severe.
A lot of people don't even make out that their gums have receded, as it is a steady process. Though, after a while, a bare tooth root can not only look unpleasant, but can be a reason for tooth sensitivity, particularly while consumption of cold or hot foodstuff. Ultimately, gum recession, if not taken care of, can result in tooth loss. To restore the damage and put off more dental problems, a gum tissue graft might be required.
In a gum graft, your periodontist initially takes out a piece of tissue from the top of your mouth.. They after that fix it to the region where your gums have worn away.


Gum Graft Surgery?

There are numerous different types of gum grafts, depending on your specific needs. Your options can include:


An allograft is a synthetic gum tissue graft and is extremely effectual. Dentist will position the artificial graft, which is a slight like a matrix, into the region that needs repairing. The matrix constructs a resilient biological structure that facilitates the gums to begin repairing themselves throughout bringing about the growth of brand new-fangled tissue cells. Producing the correct situation for tissue rejuvenation.
The regeneration process bring back the tissue to its primary form, so it serves and senses like appropriate gum tissue, and has the complete suppleness and pliability allied with healthy tissue. As the fresh gum tissue grow up, the previous matrix is steadily engrossed into the gums, turning into part of the newly created tissue.
This is our mainly used graft as the outcome is so superior.


Connective Tissue Graft

Connective tissue graft is used to restore uncovered tooth roots. Throughout this surgery a tiny flap is slashed into the roof of your mouth so some of the tissue beneath can be detached. This tissue is entitled sub epithelial connective tissue and is then sutured in position all-around the exposed root of tooth.
Free gingival grafts are pretty alike, and make use of tissue from the roof of the mouth. Though in its place of creating a flap, a small piece of tissue is detached completely from the roof of the mouth and is used to wrap up the uncovered tooth area being treated. This surgery may be suggested if your gum tissue is previously quite slim, as the graft can aid in building up the gums in this region.

Pedicle Graft

Pedicle grafts are grafted from the gums near the affected tooth. A flap of the tissue is incised away, but will remain stick at one edge. After that it is dragged into position so it envelop up the exposed tooth root and is tightly sutured in position. This procedure is just right for persons who have ample of accessible gum tissue in the area being treated.

Gum Graft Recovery

We will give you specific directions following the area being treated.

  • • No brushing and flossing in the area of the gum line that was treated until the area has repaired. For the duration of this time you will clean your mouth using a particular mouthwash.
  • • Antibiotics are prescribed to aid lessen the risk of infection.
  • • Stick to supple foods for a week or two subsequent to treatment, and evade hot food .

Gum Tissue Graft:

When should you call up your doc?

Call up your dentist if you encounter any strange symptoms following surgery, including:

  • • Bleeding that won't end after putting on pressure for 20 minutes.
  • • Tenderness and engorgement is more, than your dentist said.
What should you expect during recovery?

You’ll be able to go home shortly after the process is completed. Your periodontist may ask you to wait an hour if they want to observe you to make sure there aren’t any issues with the graft.
all through the initial week or two of healing, try to eat soft, cold foods to make certain you are not damaging the graft.

Good foodstuff s or the recuperation period include:
  • • Eggs, especially scrambled or soft-boiled
  • • Yogurt
  • • Soft vegetables
  • • Cottage cheese
  • • Ice cream
  • • Gelatine, such as Jell-O

Don’t work out or execute any laborious actions awaiting your doctor says it’s okay to do them.


When you lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth caries or damage, complete dentures can restore your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your looks and your health. facial muscles sag, making a person look older if no support to facial muscle provided.
As you can see in the image , dentures come in many shapes and sizes. These include full dentures, partial dentures, over dentures, immediate dentures, precision partial dentures, and implant retained dentures. These dentures can be formed to chew against natural teeth, fixed bridges, implant supported crowns and bridges, or any other type of dental prosthesis.

  • • Eliminate social awkwardness caused by gaps and missing
  • • Prevents existing teeth from drifting into surrounding space of the missing teeth
  • • Teeth out of position can damage tissues in the mouth
  • • Helps you in chewing.
