What are dental implants?
Modern dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically embedded into the bone of the jaw and fully grows with the bone and acts as its integral part, and its purpose is replacement for a lost root or a missing tooth.
Dental implants are ideal for patients with good oral hygiene who lost teeth due to periodontology, unsuccessful dental treatment, trauma or any other reason.
Dental implants are absolutely biocompatible with the surrounding tissue and completely connect to your bone. The possibility of implant rejection or allergic reaction is reduced to the minimum.
By dental implants you avoid filing surrounding teeth, which is required for making bridges, and in that way both physiologically and functionally it is more justified to use this modern method for replacement of lost teeth, and in case of edentulism, i.e. lack of all molars and premolars or shortened dental line, it presents the only possibility for obtaining a fixed replacement.
What can be achieved by implants?
We recommend placement of dental implants in the following cases
So, it takes 4-6 months from the placement of the implant to the new tooth in order for the implant to completely integrate into the jaw bone. In the waiting period we can make you temporary prosthetic replacements.
