Most commonly we implant a screw (artificial root) made of titanium into the jawbone during implantation, and then we prepare a superstructure which truly reflects the original anatomical features of teeth. The implants are very similar to natural teeth, the difference is almost imperceptible. The superstructure can be a crown, bridge, or even complete removable dentures with plastic plates as well.
The dental implants is an artificial root made of such a biomaterial which is implanted into the the place of the lost tooth (teeth) in order to wear the previously carefully planned denture. Most cases its material is pure, unalloyed titanium. If you are allergic to several different metals, there is no reason for worries: Titanium is fully accepted by the human body.
Before the surgery preliminary examinations are definitely needed. First we take a panoramic X-ray. During the evaluation of X-ray scan and in-depth oral test we will decide which teeth should be replaced. Then it should be further examined if the available bone supply is sufficient at all for the implant, and if the general condition of the patient allows the implantation.
- There is no need to abrade, damage the adjacent teeth due to the implantation
- Dental implantation will restore chewing ability in 90-95%
- Dental implantation allows the preparation of the most natural, aesthetic replacement.
- The implant is able to hold the bone around it. It is important to know that the area of the jaw bone which becomes toothless begins to atrophy due to inactivity. However, the inserted implant transmits the load of chewing onto the bones thus making it an active part of the organ again.
- For many people the removables dentures characterizing old age can be avoided.
- In case of missing teeth the preparation of removable partial dentures can be avoided.
- The displacement of the improperly stable denture can be prevented in case of total tooth loss, or even by inserting the appropriate number of implants a fixed
(not removable) denture can be also prepared.
- Last but not least, since it offers a sense of comfort and security during speech and chewing, facilitates the maintenance and establishment of social relations.
- Severe diabetes, high osteoporosis, cancer
- Severe blood clotting, blood disorders
- Not sufficient quantity of bone in the area of intervention (BUT, bone implant is possible)
- High biting disorder
- Excessive alcohol consumption, drug abuse, heavy smoking
- Poor oral hygiene (severe gingivitis)
- Age below 16 years of age (jawbone growing is not yet completed)
- Interlinear edentia::
These are the cases when one or two teeth are missing in an otherwise healthy tooth curve. In this case, without abrading the adjacent teeth the prosthesis can be fixed only on implants. Interlinear edentia can occur even in all four quadrants (i.e. top and bottom right and top or bottom left), but the type of edentia can be also listed here. sorolható.
- Several teeth are missing:
In this case, the replacement of the teeth is realized by the help of a fixed bridge. In order to determine the required number of implants for a given edentia, we have to plan in advance.
- Missing tooth at the end of the dental arch:
This is the case when only removable denture can be prepared as replacement in case of lack of dental implants. This is especially disadvantageous if the edentia is only one sided, since the removable denture should be "transferred" to both sides - in spite it does not replace teeth on the edentia-free side, with regards to the fact that the support of the dental arch cannot be ensured in another way. There are removable dentures by which the "transfer" to the other side can be eliminated, but the cost of there is not lower than that of the dental implants. Therefore, dental implantation the offering the possibility of providing a fixed prosthesis is definitely an advantage.
- Complete edentia:
Dental implant can be implanted depending on the existing bone quantity. If possible, the replacement of the whole dentition by fixed prosthesis is recommended (in this case the prosthesis is fixed, that is the bridge will replace the entire teeth), but other solutions can be also applied, such as the full removable denture fixed on two or four implants, the wearing of which is obviously much more bearable, favorable than that of a complete removable denture without fixation. The combinations of removable and fixed prosthesis is also possible. The solutions can be tailor-designed and constructed individually.
