The best,modern and safe solution of absent dentition replacement.
What is Dental implants?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are manufactured from biologically neutral pure Titanium that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement or denture stabilization.The shape of implants are only slightly differ between manufactures,but microscopic surface preparation and sterilisation during production are of omnious importance for success.
Dental Implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone and over time the jawbone will attach itself to the implant. Once this occurs small posts called implant abutments may be fastened to the implant and reconstructive crowns,bridges or dentures can then be attached permanently into the place.The patient will have a dramatic increase in stability as well as reduced irritation, better taste and reducing in oral sores generally associated with Dentures. Biting pressure will also be restored, enabling patients to consume foods they would have.
There are different implants shapes and sizes.Their choice depends on patient’s bone quantity and quality.
Stages of implantation
1.Definitive treatment plan establishment by your dentist and CT(special x-ray performing)
2.Surgical procedure of implantation
3.Waiting for 3-6 monthes (depending on case) for complete implant integration
4.Implant uncovering and definitive restoration
Note:in some selected cases there is possibility for immediate implant loading,which means implantation with simultaneous temporary restoration
When I will benefit of dental implant?
1.A single tooth absence
Eliminates the need of adjacent teeth preparation,reduces the number of crowns required and thus saving money.
2.Posterior teeth absence
Eliminates the need for removable partial dentures which are usually cause discomfort,sores,remaining bone resorbtion and characterized by only 40% of total chewing ability
3.Total teeth absence
-implant supported complete denture.Especially indicated in lower jaw for denture anchoring and stabilization by special housing incorporated into denture.Usually 2-4 implants are required.It will improve dramatically a persons well being with a such simple daily functions as yawing,laughing,speech,biting force.etc.
-total mouth rehabilitation by dental implants

How many time the implant will serve me?
Up to 15 years.It depens on patient’s level of oral hygiene,regular attendences for professional cleaning,general health condition and habits(smoking is significantly reduces success rates).
