Teeth implants make a comprehensive technological advancement made in the field of dentistry. Thanks to decades of researches, trials and testing, the dentists are now given the opportunity to offer their patients what nature could not offer – the third permanent teeth. The implant is a titanium screw that is installed in a jawbone thus replacing a missing tooth root onto which the artificial ceramic tooth is placed.
The installation of implants is performed under local anaesthesia and it takes around 15 minutes to install a single implant.
The procedure itself and the recovery after it are completely painless. The crown holder, i.e. the suprastructure is placed on an implant 4 to 6 months later and artificial ceramic tooth can be placed onto it immediately.
The implants can be in a form of independent crowns, holders of future ceramic bridges and can also be used as denture stabilisers.
MINI IMPLANTS USED FOR TOTAL PROSTHESIS STABILISATION
A frequent problem that occurs with the lower total prosthesis includes a weak retention and stabilisation due to excess resorption of the alveolar bone ridge and tongue function making the patients feel discomfort while using the prosthesis.
The instable prosthesis problems are resolved by installing two implants in a lower jaw bone onto which your existing or a brand new prosthesis will be mounted.
