Canine tooth implantation is a procedure where artificial teeth are used to fill the gaps caused by tooth loss, whether due to damage requiring extraction or decay affecting its structure leading to its fall. Implantation is a good alternative for replacing these lost teeth, with the artificial teeth being manufactured in the laboratory based on the natural teeth’s measurements, shape, and color to perfectly resemble them.

What is the Canine Tooth Implantation Process?

The canine tooth implantation process involves several steps or procedures that need to be followed in order for it to be highly successful without exposing the patient to any complications or issues. These steps can be mentioned in the following points:

  1. Removing damaged teeth or those with cracks and fractures on their structure or surface.
  2. Implanting artificial bones in cases suffering from osteoporosis or insufficient bone density in the jaw cavity.
  3. Securing the implant inside the gum and jaw tissues.
  4. Giving the wound a chance to heal and fully recover.
  5. Placing the canine core after a period of gum healing.
  6. Installing a crown or cap on the implant after it has fully fused.

When Do You Need a Canine Tooth Implant?

Canine tooth implantation is an effective procedure for solving many problems patients might face, and the medical conditions for which implantation is the ideal and only solution can be mentioned as follows:

  • Cases suffering from low bone density or quantity in the area to be implanted, so the tissues can withstand the pressure from the implant and aid its success.
  • Cases suffering from brittle teeth unable to withstand pressures and changes occurring in the mouth, thus unable to chew food or withstand friction from talking.

How Does the Canine Tooth Implantation Process Begin?

The implantation process for a canine begins with a medical examination and x-ray imaging of the affected area, taking measurements for the damaged teeth to be replaced with artificial ones using wax molds. Another type of x-ray used is the panoramic x-ray to clearly and detailedly show the bones of the gum cavity, aiding in accurately describing the nature of the canine and its nerve canal location if it’s a lower canine and the sinus cavity near it if it’s an upper canine.

Canine implantation is an effective therapeutic method for many advanced cases suffering from tooth loss problems. This implantation takes place in several steps over consecutive sessions, starting with examination and tooth measurements as explained in the previous title, then the next step is extracting damaged or decayed teeth after anesthetizing the affected area or injecting the gum with an anesthetic.

Then, the implantation process begins by making an incision in the gum, implanting the fixture, and covering it with its protective membrane against tartar accumulation and to expedite its fusion with the natural bone tissues in the implanted area. The process ends

with suturing the wound, and the healing process usually takes 2 to 6 months after the implant.

The final step of the implant comes after several months and complete wound healing, where the doctor tests the stability of the implant in the jaw cavity and its ability to withstand pressure or changes in the mouth, then the crown or bridge is installed on top of the implant to protect and support it against any pressure or load.

Duration of Canine Implantation

The duration of the existing bone quality in the implanted area and the affected area being treated are two important factors in determining the duration of canine implantation because the upper jaw canines require a time period ranging between 4 and 6 months for implantation unlike the lower jaw canines which do not exceed 3 months. In cases of weak bones surrounding the targeted area, resorting to bone implantation may take 6 months, and generally, the canine implantation process ranges between 2 or 6 months in total.

Gingivitis Treatment After Dental Implantation

Gingivitis after dental implantation is a possible symptom that can easily be controlled by prescribing certain antibiotics, especially if it’s localized around the implanted area. In more complicated cases where the inflammation spreads to other areas of the mouth, the doctor will resort to strong intravenous antibiotics, which may continue for weeks or months.
