A dental implant is a small titanium screw used to restore the natural tooth root. The implant is screwed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. After osteo-integration (approx. 3 months) it becomes the basis for a prosthetic. In our clinic implant restorations are mostly screw-retained Zirconia crowns and bridges.
Dental implants are used when patients are missing one, several or even all of the teeth.
In our clinic we are working with the world-leading Nobel Biocare ® dental implants. This company provides a lifetime warranty for their products worldwide.
Many people think that missing one or more teeth is not a significant problem. However, this is a wrong consumption. Missing teeth not only cause bone loss, occlusion deformation and bite dysfunction, but also impacts the change of the face. As the height of the occlusion decreases, the lower third of the face also decreases, therefore, the lips squeeze, sagging their corners, deep wrinkles appear in the area of the lips and neck. The person consequently looks older.
In order to prevent these changes, it is necessary to restore the lost teeth. There are many ways to fix a tooth crown, but only implants can restore the entire tooth - both the root and the crown. Additionally, the teeth that are adjacent to the implant are not smoothened or additionally loaded, as with using dental bridges. Implants provide the ability to have a non-removable prosthesis when it is not possible to produce a dental bridge or in cases of the loss of all teeth.
The most important element in implantation is the alveolar bone - it must have sufficient capacity to place an implant. Therefore, you need to consult a specialist to find out about the specific implantation options that are available for you personally. In our clinic you will be provided with all the necessary information and all your questions will be answered.
