Dental implantation is the most advanced and long-lasting method of lost tooth restoration that has been widely applied in dentistry for over 40 years.
Dental implants are the substitutes of the tooth root on which crowns are attached. Dental implants are usually made of titanium, which is particularly biotolerant to the human body and does not cause allergic reactions.
Dental implants can replace the roots of one, several or even all of the lost teeth.
Dental implants can be threaded into the patients of any age whose jaw is already formed (usually from 18 years of age).
Why is dental implantation so important?
If one or more teeth are lost, unwanted physiological changes occur: the function of the chewing diminishes, the remaining teeth change their position, the gaps appear, and the bone begins to disappear in the lost tooth area. This deficiency can be restored by applying conventional dental prosthesis and dental implantation. During normal prosthesis, depending on the condition of the oral cavity, the doctor may offer a plate (removable denture) or a bridge (attachable denture). Both methods of prosthetics help to restore the chewing function and improve the aesthetic image, but have a number of drawbacks compared to implantation as grinding of adjacent teeth, treatment of root canals are needed, no interdental gaps are left (in case of bridge prosthesis), additional loading of adjacent teeth is applied, decay of jaw at the point of extracted tooth happens.
Choosing a dental implantation procedure can stop the bone loss process, completely restore the original chewing function, maintain intact adjacent teeth, and achieve perfect aesthetic results. In addition, with proper care of the oral cavity, the patient can enjoy the results for several decades.
