In recent years dental implantology has become extremely advanced compared to the previous years. The use of modern materials (implants) makes possible to compensate one or more missing teeth, re-establishment of their function and improvement of the general well-being. The failure in implantology is relatively low.
The implants are being introduced into the jawbone at the lost teeth location and becoming an artificial replacement for its root. They are made of titanium or its alloys. Titanium is a metal rarely rejected by the body and without recorded allergic reactions to its presence in oral cavity.
If you come to check-ups regularly after the implant procedure you will have 2 years warranty on implants.
Three to six months after "embedded artificial tooth root" procedure, the suprastructure will be placed to compensates the coronal part of the tooth as a form of rebuilding. Dental implants can compensate for one or more missing teeth or to consolidate mobile dentures.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF IMPLANTS?
When implants are received, remaining teeth will not be burdened by forces arrising during chewing and there is no need to connect them to the neighboring teeth. In order to create dental bridge, adjacent teeth must be grinded thus leading to loss and damage of healthy tooth structure and pressurizes the grinded teeth. With mobile partial dentures, the adjacent teeth serve as anchors on which dentures relies and in time can also be damaged.
Implants substitute the natural teeth functions.
With implant, as a substitute for natural tooth root and with applied suprastructure, a function of the lost teeth are restored, during chewing jaws strains in a natural manner and prevents the loss of jawbone tissue, which could be the result of wearing dentures. The presence of the implant in the oral cavity creates the feeling of chewing and speech much as like with the natural teeth.
Implants stabilize bridges and dentures.
Stability is particularly important in mobile dentures because they are secured to the jawbone with implants which prevents their movement during lip, and cheek muscle movements and tongue movements during chewing and speech.
Aesthetically, implants are most acceptable.
Crowns, dental bridges and dentures carried or supported by implants can be made in such precise way to mimic the natural look so that the difference compared to natural teeth could not be spotted, aesthetically speaking.
DENTAL IMPLANTS IN OUR DENTAL PRACTICE
In our dental clinic you can get full treatment:
* Pretreatment (dental preparation)
* Implant placement (surgical intervention)
* Making all kinds of implant-supported dentures
* Regular check-ups.
If the conditions for implant placement are not favorable the following steps will be taken:
• Analysis of 3D orthopan
• Examining the need to use the artificial jawbone
THOROUGH ORAL HYGIENE - PRECONDITION FOR LONG-TERM PRESERVATION OF THE IMPLANTS
As proven, implant placement is a modern method of treatment dependable on individual capacity of the body with a high percentage of therapy success.
The durability of implants, which support your dentures, will depend on your motivation to maintain oral hygiene.
We can help you with that:
• After the intervention we will train you how to maintain proper hygiene of implants, crowns, bridges or dentures with toothbrushes and other dental aids.
• During regular check-ups, if existing, dental plaque will be removed professionally with ultrasonic dental cleaner, to avoid inflammation around implants and natural teeth.
• Clinic staff reminds you of your check-ups so you don’t need to think about it, in order to prevent any repercussion.
If you follow our instructions, we can guarantee the durability of implants and the quality of our work.
Regular check-ups are required so that in case of failure in implant placement, the implant could be replaced with new ones in the warranty period.
CONNECTION BETWEEN PROSTHODONTICS AND IMPLANTOLOGY
Our team of experts is highly specialized in this field of dentistry.
The combination of these two branches of dentistry favors in sense that: before implant placement treatment, bone and surrounding tissues have to be healthy so that implants can coalesce well with the bone and firmly remain in it for a long time.
Before implant procedure bones and gums have to be examined in order to establish if they are healthy, if so implant placement does not present a problem.
If some gum disease (gingivitis, periodontitis) is present, it must be treated in order to create ideal conditions for the upcoming implant procedure and its long-term success.
Implants can be placed even if there is periodontal disease in progress which can be stopped but not cured completely, only with careful and proper oral hygiene and regular check-ups.
