Implants are a modern solution to a situation where one or more teeth have been lost. Teeth roots made from surgical titanium grow together with the jaw bone, becoming part of it and ensuring a stable base for one or more teeth.
Today’s methods allow avoidance of any defects, from one missing tooth to even a completely toothless jaw. Implanted teeth are truly identical to your real teeth and ensure a natural feeling in the oral cavity.
In the place of the missing tooth/teeth, the dentist inserts the implant right away, immediately creating a temporary artificial tooth that is attached to the implant. After six months the temporary prosthetic is replaced with a permanent one.
Classic method – the surgeon the titanium implant unto the jawbone, which is followed by osteointegration – the implant growing together with the jawbone – thus becoming a part of it. The process takes 2-3 months, if the implant is placed in the lower jaw and 4-6 months if it is place in the upper jaw. During the healing time, a tooth/teeth temporary model is made so that when said time has passed, the complete prosthesis can be done. Then the dentist attaches the permanent tooth/teeth on the implants or artificially formed roots.
