Implants Dental

What are implants dental ?! Or dental implants ?! You've heard about them and maybe you're even considering them as the solution for your dental problems, but're not really sure what they are!

Definition - implants dental / dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements made of titanium and shaped like a screw.

Dental implants are made of titanium because (as discovered by Dr. Branemark in 1952) titanium " Osseointegrates " with the bone which means - it biologically bonds to the bone. In the image on the left you can see how bone grew around the dental implant and bonded to it!!!

The use of implants dental has become more common as procedures have gotten easier and success rates have grown higher with the years. Here are some of the reasons people choose dental implants:
  • Comfort - a dental implant is such a good tooth replacement, that you don't even remember it's not real.
  • Improved hygiene - Individual implants allow easier access between teeth, enabling everyday normal dental care, and in that way improve oral hygiene.
  • Aesthetics - tooth implants look and feel good - dentists can achieve results that look exactly like natural teeth.
  • Improved oral health - since treatment with dental implants involves placing implants in areas where there are no teeth and does not affect your other healthy teeth, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your long-term oral health. Additionally, by placing implants in areas with no teeth, you stimulate the bone area again and prevent long term bone loss in that area. (When a tooth is lost, the bone is not stimulated and begins to shrink away).
  • Durability - dental implants offer a permanent solution to teeth loss. They bond to the jaw bone and become part of it. The completed implant is as strong and durable as a natural tooth.

These are good reasons why you should consider implants dental and there are more of them. If you're trying to decide between dental implants or building a bridge - click here to see the comparison between: bridge vs dental implants
