A tooth implant involves a metal post implanted into the jawbone and a crown or denture attached. The dental procedure does not affect surrounding teeth, and intraosseous implants serve for over 20 years.
For some people, dental implants seem to be a preferred option among similar procedures, for others – the only possible one.
An interesting fact! The first dental implants were placed in Sweden in 1965.
The procedure is indicated in:
- loss of one or more teeth, regardless of their location;
- adentia (absence of all teeth).
Important! Before dental implantation, the oral cavity should be fixed: teeth to be treated, bleeding gums stopped.
Dental implants: how do they work?
A tooth implant is a complex multi-component structure consisting of several parts. The first stage of dental prosthetics is the implantation of a metal post into the bone to replace the root.
An abutment (titanium, plastic, zirconium), a part protruding above the gum line, connects an implant and a crown. The components are securely connected using screws or dental cement.
The part replacing the lost tooth is a crown. Depending on the crown quality, implant types are as follows:
- Titanium, characterized by high strength, lightness, hypoallergenicity.
- Zirconium, with natural-looking aesthetics of the dentition (possible individual selection of the shade of the crown).
The actual argument: dental implantation advantages/disadvantages
Advantages of teeth replacement with implants are obvious:
- possibility to restore the natural-looking teeth;
- no adjacent teeth affected;
- low risk of jawbone atrophy;
- gum aesthetics preserved;
- long service life;
- easy to care – regular cleaning in the morning and in the evening is enough.
Dental implants: disadvantages
Success rates of artificial tooth implantation accounted up to 97%. However, rejection is observed in the remaining 3% because of:
- Systemic diseases (HIV, hypertension, diabetes mellitus).
- Low-quality implants.
- Incompliance with the doctor’s recommendations during the post-dental implantation period (smoking, eating very solid food, improper oral hygiene).
- Medical error.
Another disadvantage of the procedure is its high cost.
