Can You Get A Dental Implant Years After Extraction
Tooth loss is an emotionally painful experience that demands for a quick replacement, and should be made a priority.
Dental Implantation is a procedure where a missing tooth root is replaced with a titanium post, which in turn will support a crown or a bridge that looks and functions like natural teeth. An excellent alternative to dental bridges where in the adjacent teeth are reduced circumferentially to support a crown or a bridge on them or also in cases where the adjacent teeth are not healthy enough to support a bridge or when the patient is completely edentulous.
If due to some reason, a person did not undergo replacement of lost teeth immediately after extraction, they can still opt for it even after a few years but there are few criteria to be fulfilled, depending on the implant system they choose( Conventional two piece implants/Single piece Basal implants)
Quality and quantity of the supporting bone: Bone needs stimulation to maintain its
bulk, which is provided by the tooth root and once the tooth is lost,the bone starts to recede,that is the reason why people using removable dentures have an aged appearance when compared to people with their natural teeth or people with fixed teeth on Implants.
Implants can be placed even years after tooth extraction but,Conventional Implants require procedures like Bone grafting and Sinus lifting procedures for replacement of teeth , if there is not much bone left.
Basal implants can be placed in any bony circumstances as they rely on quality of bone rather than quantity, these implants are placed in the basal bone which is present in all.
The amount of space left: Teeth generally have a tendency to drift towards the vacant space created by the missing teeth, it can be either into the same arch or supra erupt into the opposing arch,so the amount of space left for the tooth to be replaced also plays a significant role.In partial replacements, the amount of available space is very crucial.

Basal implants, as the name suggests are anchored into Basal bone , this bone is present in all the patients at the base of the Alveolar bone,which holds the teeth. Alveolar bone will be lost due to lack of stimulation from the tooth roots after extraction but the Basal bone will remain intact irrespective of the number of years prior the teeth have been extracted or the amount of infection in the surrounding tissues. Basal bone remains free from infection and are resorption free, therefore these implants are suggested in any patient irrespective of his health status and habits like smoking.This implant system advocates Immediate loading.
Conventional dental implants are a two piece system where the root and the tooth component are different entities and are joined by a tiny screw.This system requires a good bone for placement and delayed loading if not, procedures like bone augmentation and sinus lift procedures are undertaken to improve the bone height and then the implants are placed after the surgical site is healed, that is after 6 to 8 months.
