Dental implant technology is a method of tooth restoration that has taken an attention of customers in recent years. This technique is considered highly durable because the implant post is directly embedded into the jawbone. Let’s take a tour with Worldwide Dental & Plastic Surgery Hospital to understand more about the dental implant technique.


Dental implant, or implant dentistry, is another term for the dental implant procedure. This is considered the most comprehensive tooth restoration technique today because it can overcome the limitations of traditional tooth replacement methods. Let’s find out what dental implant exactly is.

Dental implant technique is the process of inserting titanium tooth roots into the jawbone. Once the jawbone integrates and surrounds the implant root, the dentist attaches porcelain crowns to complete the artificial teeth for the patient.

For single-tooth implant techniques, patients can restore one tooth per implant. However, with full-arch implant techniques, patients can restore from 10 to 12 teeth using 4 or 6 implant posts.


This technology was first applied in 1952 by Dr. Branemark, based on observations from animals. After using Titanium clips combined with animal bones, scientists did not observe any biochemical reactions. Moreover, the bones were able to form a strong bond with the Titanium clips.

Observing under a microscope, scientists noticed bone cells invading the surface of the implant, helping the Titanium clip to firmly stand on the jawbone without any intervening adhesive material.

The first dental implants in the world were crafted from pure Titanium rods, that resulted in a slow and less durable bone integration process.

After improvements, implant posts were designed in a screw-shaped form with multiple roughened points on its body, allowing the implant to securely attach to the jawbone, and facilitate a faster bone integration process.


As mentioned above, dental implant placement offers many advantages and can overcome limitations of traditional dental restoration methods such as dental bridges and removable dentures. However, this method still has certain drawbacks. So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of this method? Let’s find out now.

1. Advantages:

Dental implant placement is a recommended dental restoration solution because it possesses a variety of advantages that cannot be seen in traditional dental restoration methods.

  • The implant post is crafted from pure Titanium, a material known for its high biocompatibility with the body. Therefore, dental implants do not cause irritation when placed into the jawbone.
  • Dental implants have a long lifespan, typically lasting over 25 years, and this duration can even be permanent if the patient maintains proper care.
  • Dental implants have a structure and color similar to natural teeth, ensuring aesthetic appeal.
  • Dental implant method prevents bone resorption and facial aging which are common complications when teeth are lost for over 3 months.
  • Unlike removable dentures, dental implants provide for patients a very simple care routine, just brushing and maintaining oral hygiene like normal teeth.

2. Disadvantages:

Although the dental implant placement is considered the recommended solution for patients, it still has some limitations, such as:

  • The restoration process of dental implants relatively takes a long time, at least 2 to 6 months to complete a single tooth (this duration can be shortened by opting for premium implants combined with early implantation to expedite the restoration process).
  • It cannot be performed for patients with significantly resorbed jawbones or those whose jawbone volume is insufficient.
  • Compare to traditional methods of dental restoration, this method has a relatively high cost, ranging from 18 to 20 million VND per implant (excluding bone grafting costs).


All above is a detailed explanation of the Dental implant technique. Compare to the two traditional methods of dental restoration, namely dental bridges and removable dentures, this is considered the top solution for patients due to its numerous advantages.
