Dental ImplantologyImplantology is a field of dental medicine which focuses on dental implant placement.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants implants are titanium components used to restore one or more tooth roots. They are made out of titanium, a biocompatible material which merges with the surrounding bone (osseointegration).
The process of osseointegration depends on numerous factors: the estimated period of merging is 2-6 months.
Dental implantology is a field of dental medicine which focuses on the surgical placement of dental implants into the upper or lower jaw bone.
Dental implant placement is a completely painless procedure performed under local anesthesia.
Modern dentistry considers implant placement the foundation to quality prosthetics, that is – the optimal solution for replacing one or more missing teeth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
There is no need for reducing neighboring teeth in order to replace the missing tooth.
A toothless alveolar ridge gets resorbed (reduced) much faster than a ridge with teeth – dental implants prevent residual ridge resorption.
Due to tooth loss, neighboring and opposing teeth bend toward the toothless gap, ruining the balance of the oral cavity. Issues with temporomandibular joints and occlusion can occur after several years of life with a missing tooth.
The only esthetic and functional solution for restoring several missing teeth are implant retained dental bridges.
Patients who have lost all of their teeth are offered several quality solutions, depending on the state of their alveolar bone – semi-fixed or completely fixed implant retained bridges.
