Implantology

implantologyDentistry today has in its disposal modern non-traditional methods in addition to known conventional methods. Among them there is the restoration of dentition defects with the help of dental implants. In the last decade the implantology methods and materials have reached a level that allows most properly restore the lost teeth for a long term. The success of treatment with dental implants reaches 90%.

A dental implant itself is a titanium screw that is put into the bone on the place of the removed tooth. This is a completely biocompatible design, which thanks to a special surface processing connects to the bone and allows you strongly fix the dentures in the mouth. In this way the loss of a single tooth can be recovered, as well as the problem of a complete tooth loss can be solved.   

Implantologist will examine your mouth and hold x-ray examination of the edentulous area of the jaw. If your bone is not wide enough for the implant installation, the doctor will expand the bone with a biomaterial. In this case, the implant installation will be preceded by the bone restoration within six months.

The installation of a single implant takes 30-90 minutes and it is performed on an outpatient basis and usually in two stages. During the first phase the implant (corresponding to the bone type) will be installed, the wounds are sewn with bioresorbable seams that do not require further extraction, or non-absorbable, which must be removed within 7-10 days. The implant is left for engraftment into the bone. The implant engraftment is important to create a solid foundation for future prosthetic construction and takes 3-6 months. After this period, implantologist performs the incision of the mucous gum membrane in the place of the implant installation and fixation of temporary titanium cap (abutment) above the level of the gums. The gum around the abutment heals in about two weeks and forms the cuff which prevents penetration of microbes in the area of the implant. Then the temporary cap is replaced by a permanent one and orthopedic constructions (crowns, bridges or full dentures) almost indistinguishable from natural teeth are made for it.
