Dental implants are artificially made tooth roots made of titanium or ceramics. The dental implants are placed into the jawbones by your dental surgeon to replace the roots of missing teeth.
Dental implantation opened a possibility to be able to talk about the replacement of an individual tooth, several teeth side by side, or even a rehabilitation affecting the complete jaw. The most ideal tooth replacements from a medical, aesthetic, and functional point of view can be achieved through implants.
Advantages of implants:
- Durability: the lifetime of an implant -with proper dental hygiene and recurring dental checkups naturally- is very long, can last up to 25-30 years or even a full lifespan.
- Best value-for-money rate: taking durability into account,, the price of implant tooth replacements is the most favorable proportionally!
- Aesthetics: most lifelike replacements can be fitted by the help of implants
- Comfort and function: wearing and using implant tooth replacements is comfortable, equivalent to natural teeth. You don’t need to worry about a possible shifting of the replacement when you bite or chew!
- Facial aesthetics: fitted implants can prevent the atrophy of jawbones, thus contributing to the preservation of a youthful facial contour.
For implanting operations, in our practice we use the products of Nobel Biocare, Alpha Bio and MegaGen. This wide selection of products enables us to find the right solution for every one of our patients, both professionally and financially.
During the healing period following the implantation, implants strongly lock in the jawbone, thus we can use them to create fixed anchoring points for assorted tooth replacements.
Before dental implants were developed, fixed tooth replacements could only be created by using natural teeth bracketing the deficiency area to hold the replacements. For that, holder (“pillar”) teeth needed to be ground down which resulted in great loss of dental material, and this process is irreversible. These kinds of replacements also have the limitation of very rarely being used for trailing (“end of the line”) replacements, because in this case only one side of the replacement can be securely fastened to a solid point inside the mouth.
