Dental implants are titanium screws that are applied to the bone within the jaw. Due to their ability to firmly affix dentures, dental implants act as artificial roots. In general, they are tightened like a screw into the bone matter, or they are simply plugged in. They firm up and connect with the surrounding bones to become a tight, utterly stable carrier unit within 3 to 6 months.
Dental implants – Why?
Dental implants represent the best solution for recovery of one or more missing teats. They are made of titanium which is biocompatible material and thus enables adhesion between the implant and the bone. Dental implants functionally fix esthetic problem in the most adequate way.
Dental implants – How?
Implantation is done in two steps.
STEP 1 – the implant is inserted into the bone and imitates the root of the teeth. It is the surgical part, implantation spot is exposed by a cut through the gingiva. The implant is inserted into the bone and the gingiva is again closed over the implant by stitches. Resorptive ends are used for stitches, which are removed after seven days. This step last 4-5 days.
STEP 2 – after 3 months supra implants structures are made and that is abutment (represents the connection between the implant and the crown) and then the dental technician fashions the tailor-made crown. This step lasts 5 days.
Dental implants – what to do before implantation

Analyzing the 3D recording the exact data about the depth and width of the bone is obtained, and the final treatment plan is made. It is also very important to be faced with the patient health condition. The success rate for osseointegration is about 95%, but some of the chronic diseases increase the risk of failure.
