A dental implant is a small titanium biocompatible screw which imitates the root of the tooth, and in a surgical way can be built in the bone of the jaw. The installation of implants is recommended to people who are missing one or more natural teeth, as well as such to whom the natural possibility of chewing, esthetical look or speech has been damaged.
If you are missing one or more teeth and you want to smile, speak and eat with a feeling of comfort and self-confidence, we have good news for you! Implants are tooth replacements that look completely natural and you feel as though as they are your own. It is made out of titanium, a metal which the body accepts very good and which, with a bone, creates a strong bond making a stable base.
An extension, called an abutment, is then secured to the dental implant so that a new dental crown or bridges, and other various kinds of dentures as mobile solutions can be placed on it, giving you the full functionality and look of natural teeth that will last longer than a lifetime. Crowns are made when one tooth is missing, and in the case when a larger number of teeth is missing or with complete toothlessness, a possible solution is a bridge attached to the implants.
The implant success rate today is around 98%, which qualifies this type of intervention among the most successful in dentistry. The procedure of implant installation is made in the time interval of 15 minutes by the implant.
The sole surgical procedure lasts short, and most importantly, is completely painless for the patient since it is done under local anesthetics.
