Dental implants

Dental implants are the very best way to replace lost teeth, providing an unbeatable aesthetic result. You get a healthy and beautiful smile with new teeth that do not differ significantly from your own.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium fixture that is inserted into the jaw. This acts as an artificial root for a tooth. Then a crown (the tooth itself) is screwed into the titanium root. Titanium is a material with the best capacity to be biologically integrated into the human body. Over time it grows securely into the jaw.

Can I have dental implants?

This technique is appropriate for almost everyone, and is suitable for solving a variety of problems associated with the loss of one or more teeth. Where one or more teeth need to be replaced, a dental implant is a solution allowing the dentist to restore your teeth without damaging adjacent ones. Furthermore, titanium screws can serve as a base for both full jaw and shorter bridges. The criteria for a successful implant treatment are that the patient is in generally good health and has good oral hygiene. The patient should also not be a smoker as this significantly impairs the ability of a dental implant to integrate properly. Where a patient has poor, or insufficient, bone in their jaw, it is sometimes possible to undertake a bone graft.

Advantages:

  • Natural and aesthetic impression – they look like real teeth and help to restore a youthful appearance
  • Comfort – there is no feeling of having something foreign in your mouth
  • Functionality – much better chewing capability compared to a prosthesis
  • Reliability and durability
  • Implants neither damage nor adversely affect healthy teeth
  • There is no need to drill or grind healthy teeth to make bridges
  • No discomfort from removable dentures

Criteria for implant treatment

The patient should have good overall health and good oral hygiene for the successful integration of dental implants. If the patient’s jaw bone is inadequate, it may be possible to augment or graft onto it.

How long does it take?

The time that the entire process takes depends on the number of implants to be inserted, along with the quality and volume of the jaw bone. The fixture (implant) itself is fully integrated after three to six months. The bone in the lower jaw is harder and thicker, so the integration process is faster. On the other hand, the bone in the upper jaw is thinner and softer, which means that the integration process takes longer.

When the dental implant has integrated, it is time to prepare the gum for the new teeth. This takes up to two weeks and one visit to the dentist. In the final part of the process the new teeth are manufactured in a dental laboratory. This can take up to two weeks. Then the permanent porcelain teeth are cemented onto the titanium implants.
