A dental implant is an artificial titanium root that is inserted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. Once the tiny shank is attached, a replacement tooth (eg a crown) can be installed. Over time, this becomes part of the neighboring framework.
One of the first benefits of a dental implant is that it almost identically recreates the look of a natural tooth root. Unlike the fixed bridge which requires neighboring teeth to be polished to retain the cemented bridge, the implant does not depend on adjacent teeth.
The implant also helps restore normal chewing and preserve bone, while preventing tooth migration. The oral hygiene routine (brushing and flossing) can also resume normally. In addition, the crown installed on the implant does not decay. Of course, to avoid gum and jaw bone diseases like gingivitis and periodontics, good dental hygiene is recommended.
Who can benefit from an implant?
Anyone with good general health, healthy gums and a bone base in the jaw strong enough to support the implant can receive an implant. On the other hand, if you are lacking bone volume, the dentist may perform a bone graft before placing the implant. Each situation is unique, however, they will need to assess your overall oral health before telling you if you are a good candidate for an implant.
If you cannot receive an implant, a dental bridge may be considered. It will be permanently attached to neighboring healthy teeth using special cement. To ensure its stability, the dentist will have to trim and polish the natural teeth on which it rests. Over time, unlike the implant, unstimulated bone will gradually atrophy below the bridge. The prosthesis will then have to be redone.
Removable implant-supported prosthesis
The implant-supported prosthesis is removable like the traditional “denture”. On the other hand, the implant-supported prosthesis is held in place on the gum using artificial roots implanted in the jawbone. This prosthesis thus combines two dental replacement techniques, namely, the implant and the denture.
If you have lost all of your natural teeth, this prosthesis can be a great solution. It will prevent significant bone loss in the jaw which could change the appearance of your face. Compared to conventional dentures, the implant-supported prosthesis will provide you with a stable solution as well as great chewing comfort. Your quality of life will be increased. In addition, it can be cleaned like your natural teeth. The implant-supported prosthesis can last a lifetime.
Strauman is simply one of the best names in implants.
A dental implant is designed to replace the missing tooth root and hold the artificial tooth in place.
Commercially pure Titanium is a very strong and biocompatible metal that bonds well with living bone. (Osseointegration)
Titanium Zirconium Alloy is strong than pure titanium and offers more treatment options with small diameter implants.
