WHAT ARE THE IMPLANTS?
Permanent solution for the tooth loss
Dental implants are representin common process of permanent replacement of missing teeth without the influence of vicinal/adjacent teeth.
We perform prosthetic work on implants in:
- Dolder crosses on the total prosthesis
- Combined work
According to the type of indication and the desire of the therapist, the implant works can be fixed by cementing or by instalment of the screws (recommended).
The procedure of installing a dental implant
A dental implant is composed of three parts:
- Titanium artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jawbone;
- Upgrades that are screwed in titanium root;
- Crowns, which are set to upgrade.
In this way, the dental implant is substituting the lost tooth. Implant becomes a replica of the former tooth. The procedure to implant the tooth is simple. At the outset it is necessary to perform an X-ray of the jaw, in order to determine whether there is enough of bone mass in the jaw. If not, prior to implant surgery installing artificial bone is performed. The surgery of implant installation itself takes about 30 minutes. After completion of the surgery a patient is waiting for 3 months so that the implant can grow into the jawbone. After this period the patient comes back to dentist where he has an implant screwed into upgraded structure (supra structure) and also prosthodontics is performed (crowns).
