What are dental implants and how are they used?

Posted on: 18 Mar 2013

Dental implants have changed the dental industry the last 25 years. Dental implants are one of the biggest scientific dental discoveries. After a lot of research and understanding now they are used in clinical practice everywhere in the world. Implant dentistry requires planning, surgery and experience in tooth restoration and it requires the same amount of art and dentistry experience for the procedure to happen. If you still have questions about this issue … let me start from the beginning.

A dental implant is actually a replacement for root or roots of a tooth. Implants same as the roots are safely secured on the jawbone and after they are surgically placed they are invisible just like the normal roots. Basically implants are used to hold the “Crown” (That’s the part of the tooth that is visible in your mouth) . Implants are made of titanium because titanium is light weight, strong and its biocompatible which means that the body will not reject it. Titanium and titanium implants have a wide spectre of use not only in dental practice but also in orthopaedic purpose like bone implants for joint replacements.

 But dental implants have the biggest success rate in implanted surgery. The reason why titanium have such a great rate in implant success is that titanium has a special property of fusing to bone’s called  osseointegration  witch means osseo – bone and integration – fusing or joining with. This is important cause when you lose your tooth you lose the supporting bone for that tooth. The implant actually stabilizes bone and prevents it from losing. It also keeps the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and the soft tissues as gum, cheeks and lips. So dental implants help you eat, smile, and look completely natural.

Dental implants gain in popularity all over the world because of their excellent results. In countries where the dental procedures are very expensive, people search for dental implants abroad.
