Implant

Dental implants are screws that replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants work the same as teeth roots in the jawbone, and are not visible after surgery.

A dental implant is a substitute for one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are fixed like tooth roots in the jawbone and subsequently not visible after surgically placed. After implantation they are used to support crowns, bridges or sets of dentures are attached to the implant. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body. Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and other bone implants, such as orthopedic joint replacements. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.

Along with replacing missing teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures -gum tissues-, cheeks and lips.

The dentist explains the possible treatment options for each clinical situation thoroughly to each patient. Prosthodontic options for replacing missing teeth in patients with partial edentulism include implant-supported crowns, implant-supported fixed dental prostheses, implant-supported removable dental prostheses, tooth-supported fixed dental prostheses and removable partial dentures. Dentists advise patients with multiple missing teeth that implant-supported fixed dental prostheses make greater improvements to oral health related quality of life than tooth supported fixed dental prostheses. The patient then choose one of the possible treatments based on his or her preferences.

Patient requirements such as esthetics and functional comfort are considered more important when attempting to replace missing teeth.

Replacing missing teeth prevents undesirable tooth movements and improves appearance and function.

Implant placement is a sensitive surgical procedure that needs professional approach. The important ideas behind surgery are dentists’ experience and skills that present fast and painless result.
