After a tooth extraction it is necessary to fill
the empty space created, otherwise it may come to the rotation and
tilt of adjacent teeth to the empty space, the loss of their
positions and functions, as well as the loss of bone in the area of
the missing teeth which can make ones facial expressions seem
unnatural, and also, if a tooth is missing in the zone of one’s
smile, it can affect one’s confidence.
Restoration of the natural function and appearance of your lost
teeth can be very difficult. A denture or bridge may seem like the
proper choice but in comparison with implants have limited results.
In many cases, dental implants are most thankful aesthetic and
functional solution as a compensation for missing teeth.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
The implants are allopathic materials that are implanted in the soft
tissue and bone of the upper and lower jaw in order to improve the
function of mastication, aesthetics and phonation in partially or
fully edentulous patients. For the successful implantation of
particular importance are the right indications, proper patient
selection, and proper use of surgical techniques and making of
functionally and aesthetically satisfying supra-structure. Placing
the implant in the jaw is a completely painless procedure.
Prosthetics is made 6-8 weeks after the implant placement.
AM I THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR
Today, almost every person who has lost a tooth is a candidate for
implant placement. The exceptions are patients who suffer from
osteoporosis, uncontrolled diabetes and related chronic diseases.
Immediately after surgery, in the healing phase of the gingival, the
risk group includes smokers because of the healing difficulties
caused by the damaging action of nicotine and elevated temperature
in the mouth. The basic prerequisite for implant placement is good
oral hygiene. Dental implants are an ideal option for people of good
oral health who have lost one or more teeth. Candidates for dental
implants need to have healthy gum and bone to support the
WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE OF
The percentage of success in the placement of implants today is over
98%. To determine whether the implants can be the solution for you,
it is necessary to carry out X-ray diagnosis and have a consultation
with a dentist to inspect teeth and gums. Placing the implant
consists of several stages. In the first stage implant is placed
into the jawbone. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia;
it is completely painless and takes approximately 30 minutes. The
process of osseointegration (fusion stage of implant and bone) lasts
2-6 months. In the second phase the supra-structure is set around
which the gingival will form. The following phase includes printing
of the supra-structure. After that, the dental technician prepares a
model which will be used to make the final prosthetic work.
ARE THERE RISKS INVOLVING
PLACEMENT OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Implants are the most comfortable solution for the patient if their
application will prevent grinding of adjacent teeth and bone
resorption, which occurs after removal of the teeth. Side effect
that can happen most often are - infection around the implant,
injury to surrounding tissue (sinus nerves or blood vessels) or
fracture of the bone.
