Missing any teeth? Well, don’t miss out on quality of life!
The loss of one or more teeth can change our eating habits, speech, behavior, appearance and, therefore, negatively affect both our psychology and self-confidence.
In addition, loss of a tooth can cause damage to the bone around the root even if the lost tooth is restored with a fixed dental prosthesis (bridge). As a result, bone loss increases in time.
Fortunately, dental implants have been an excellent solution over the last 30 years, as they replace not only the lost tooth but also the dental root. Therefore, dental implants are a solid foundation for artificial teeth, which not only look but also feel like your natural teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are tooth implants; basically, screwed-on teeth.
Essentially, dental implants are artificial, metal tooth roots made of titanium, the most biocompatible material. Dental implants are placed in the jaw bone, where a tooth is missing. The dentist uses this “root” to support the artificial tooth.
This method is suggested if you have lost one or more teeth and wish to fill the gap without artificial dentures or bridges and avoid any sharpening of adjacent teeth.
“Are dental implants suitable for me?”
Successful implantation does not require much on your behalf. Naturally, a good general health, regardless of age, and a healthy lifestyle are the best conditions for a successful prognosis and the long-term survival of implants.
If you have any health problems, such as high blood pressure or glucose levels, we will just have to collaborate with a pathologist before implantation to avoid complications.
Once our specialized Implantologist finds that there is bone sufficiency following a full radiograph, our specialist carries out implantation in the clinic, using local anesthesia. The process is quick. Only one appointment is required for the placement of the “screw”.
After implantation, you should wait for about 2-5 months until the implant is incorporated into the jawbone. During this time you may undergo interim restoration. Once the necessary period of time has passed, the doctor will proceed to the second phase, revealing the implant and taking the final measures to support the new, artificial tooth on the implant (screwed-on teeth).
Profit from cutting-edge technology
Are you a fan of technology in any science? The entire implant placement process becomes even more predictable and effective with the use of the latest technological methods. Digital three-dimensional radiograms are combined with digital tooth imaging and customized dental splints for fully computer guided implants.
