Dental Transplant: A Revolutionary Procedure for Oral Health

Om Samaj Dental Hospital recently conducted its weekly Oral Health Show, hosted by Kripesh Karna, where viewers had the opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer session with Dr. Surendra Acharya, an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, on the topic of dental transplant.

If you are someone who has been experiencing tooth damage or has recently had to remove a tooth. Likewise, if you are unsure of the options available to you for tooth replacement then dental transplants might be the right answer for you. This revolutionary procedure, although not yet common in Nepal, is now available at Om Samaj Dental Hospital. Let’s take a closer look at what dental transplant entails.

What is Dental Transplant?

A dental transplant is a procedure that involves replacing a damaged tooth with a healthy one. This is similar to organ transplants, but in this case, the healthy tooth is taken from another area in the mouth. For instance, wisdom teeth can be used to replace damaged teeth.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Dental Transplant?

Like any surgical procedure, a dental transplant has both benefits and drawbacks. On the positive side, there are no major side effects if the aftercare is done properly. However, as with any surgery, there is a risk of infection or other complications if proper precautions are not taken. Additionally, the success of a dental transplant largely depends on the condition of the replacement tooth and the surrounding tissues.

Can diabetes patients and BP patients undergo this medical procedure?

Before any patient undergoes a dental transplant, mandatory checkups such as X-rays are done to assess the condition of the teeth and related diseases. The dentist will then determine whether the patient is a suitable candidate for the procedure. If you have diabetes or blood pressure, it does not necessarily mean you cannot undergo a dental transplant. However, it is important to get the green light from your dentist first.

How is it performed?

The dental transplant procedure starts with the extraction of the damaged tooth. The extracted tooth is then used to measure the area where the transplant will take place. The healthy tooth to be transplanted must be in good condition and not damaged. During the extraction, the tooth must be removed carefully, without breaking it, to ensure it can be used as a replacement.

Before Dental Transplant

Nerve systems, roots, and bones of the tooth area are checked before proceeding with the transplant. The dentist will then begin the transplant process, which can be done with local or general anesthesia. Patients will be fully briefed on the steps before the procedure begins.

After Dental Transplant

Aftercare and Follow-up

After the surgery, patients are required to take care of the transplanted tooth and follow specific instructions for proper healing. It is important to schedule regular follow-up appointments with the dentist, which may vary depending on the patient’s individual condition. Follow-up is necessary to ensure the transplanted tooth is healthy and functioning correctly.

What is the tentative cost of this procedure?

The cost of a dental transplant can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the procedure and the materials used. The cost of tooth extraction, which is required for a transplant, can range from 10,000 to 20,000 Nepalese rupees. Likewise, a single crown bridge can cost anywhere from 8,000 to 25,000 Nepalese rupees. Dental implants, which involve the insertion of a metal root and a cap, can cost anywhere from 60,000 to 100,000 Nepalese rupees.

In conclusion, a dental transplant is a safe and effective procedure for those who want to replace damaged or missing teeth.

Are there any restrictions for a dental implant?

While dental implants are a highly effective and popular solution for replacing missing teeth, there are some restrictions to consider, which are:

  • Patients with significant bone loss may require additional procedures such as bone grafting.
  • Patients with certain medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune diseases, or a weakened immune system may not be suitable candidates for dental implants.
  • Smoking can impact the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure.

With all this, it is important to consult with a qualified dentist to discuss your specific situation and determine if dental implants are a suitable option for you.

Factors that Affect Dental Implants Cost in Nepal

First, it’s important to understand the cost of dental implants can vary widely depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed, the type of implant used, the materials used, and the expertise and experience of the dental surgeon. 

Here are some factors that can affect the cost of dental implants in Nepal:

  • Type of dental implant

There are several types of dental implants available in Nepal. Similarly, the cost can vary depending on the type of implant you choose. Some examples of dental implants are traditional dental implants and mini implants. 

Traditional implants are larger, requiring more extensive surgery and a longer healing time. Mini implants are smaller and can be placed in less time with less invasive surgery. Therefore, a traditional dental implant is more expensive compared to mini implants.

  • Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure is a surgical process that involves several steps. The procedures typically involve an initial consultation, implant placement, healing period, abutment placement, and a replacement tooth or bridge placement.

Likewise, in some cases, additional procedures or treatments may be required before or after the dental implant procedure. Moreover, the complexity of the dental implant procedure can affect the cost of the treatment.

Symptoms of Mouth Cancer & Its Prevention

Mouth cancer, also known as oral cancer, is a type of cancer that develops in the tissues of the mouth, including the lips, tongue, cheek, floor of the mouth, and hard and soft palate.

Early detection and treatment of such cancer are crucial for improving outcomes and increasing the chances of recovery.

When detected early, the cancer can often be treated effectively, but if it is left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body and become more difficult to treat.

Symptoms of Mouth Cancer

Sores Or Lumps In The Mouth

One of the most common signs of oral cancer is the presence of sores or lumps in the mouth that do not heal within two weeks.

These sores can be red, white, or mixed in colour, and may be painful or not.

Pain Of Difficulty Swallowing

Oftentimes, oral cancer can cause pain or difficulty when swallowing, as the cancer can affect the tissues that are involved in the swallowing process.

Persistent Bad Breath

Oral cancer can lead to persistent bad breath, as the cancerous cells in the mouth can release an unpleasant odour.

Loose Teeth can Cause Mouth Cancer

Because it can harm the tissues and bones that support the teeth, oral cancer can result in loose teeth.

Changes In Speech or Voice: 

As the disease can affect the tissues involved in communication, such as the tongue, lips, and throat, oral cancer might result in alterations in speech or voice.

These changes can include slurred speech, hoarseness, or difficulty speaking.

Prevention Of Mouth Cancer

Quit Smoking And Limit Alcohol Consumption

Quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption are the most important steps in preventing oral cancer. 

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are both major risk factors for developing oral cancer.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing oral cancer, as it helps to remove plaque and bacteria that can cause oral infections. 

Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash can help to maintain good oral hygiene.

Regular Dental Check-Ups

Regular dental check-ups can help to detect oral cancer early, when it is most treatable.

During a dental check-up, the dentist will examine the mouth for signs of cancer, and can refer the patient for further testing if necessary.

Regular dental check-ups are an important part of oral cancer screening and can help to save lives.

At Om Samaj Dental Hospital, we provide lifetime Free Dental Checkups in all our branches, with a nominal one-time membership fee of NRs. 20 – Rs. 50. You can do regular Free Dental checkups at Om Samaj Dental Hospital which is an important part of oral cancer screening and can help to save lives.


In conclusion, oral cancer can cause various symptoms such as sores or lumps, pain when swallowing, persistent bad breath, loose teeth, and changes in speech or voice. 

The most effective way to prevent oral cancer is to quit smoking, limit alcohol consumption, maintain good oral hygiene, and have regular dental check-ups. 

Early detection and treatment of oral cancer is crucial for a positive outcome.
