Dental implants substitute single teeth, which can be combined with bridges or prothetics. The implants are screws, made of 100% titanium, which take over the function of the dental root. Titanium is biocompatible and allergy-free.
By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to eat all the foods they love, without struggling to chew. Additionally, they help to stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to support facial features.
The patient, who is planned to undergo implantation, undergoes clinical and radiographic examinations. As a result of these examinations, the type, diameter and length of the implant; then the type of prosthesis is decided.
For long-term success, an optimized dental hygiene programm is necessary and regular visits with the dental hygienist are mandatory.
Various studies showed, that with intensive care, implants can be obtained for a long time: the success rate is at 95%, after ten years.
