What is a Dental Implant?
Real Size Dental Implant
Dental Implants are structures designed to replace a missing tooth root. Are made from Titanium and placed in the maxillary and mandibular bones, by a generally simple surgical operation. Once the implant is osseo-integrated into the bone, a crown is specially made and installed to restore the tooth.
One tooth replacement:
to be a
of binding to the bone through a process called Osseointegration. It
does not cause allergies or reactions
in the body, making
completely safe material.
What Advantages do Dental Implants have?
When comparing a cemented bridge with a Dental Implant at replacing a lost tooth:
Dental Implants avoid grinding healthy side teeth, or in cases where side adjacent teeth have some degree of bone loss, with Dental Implants, teeth do not get overloaded nor depend on tooth viability for keeping the replaced tooth in place.
Comparing Dental Implants with a Removable Denture, they have the great advantage of being fixed non removable.
Three teeth replacement:
All teeth replacement:
What is the process for placing Dental Implants?
There are four treatment
Is there a risk of rejection?
No, whenever a Dental Implant does not osseointegrate, it's not that the body has rejected it, but because of problems of quantity or quality of the bone. When a Dental Implant is lost it can be replaced by another and it usually works without problems. The implant success rate is 97-98%, making them one of the most predictable treatments in the world of medicine.
Can I receive Dental Implants if I have Periodontitis (Gum's disease)?
YES! Periodontal patients are who most implants receive. Periodontitis must and should be stabilized and controlled and patient must maintain an adequate level of oral hygiene. If implants are placed in a patient with untreated periodontitis, there is a risk of perimplantitis (Inflammation around the implant and future loss) therefore periodontal patients with implants should go to higienist maintenance more frequently than patients with no periodontal implants.
