How does dental implant help to get back the lost teeth?
A dental implant is an artificial titanium root, which is screwed into the bone in place of the missing tooth. Titanium has a phenomenal ability to engraft in bone tissue, which makes it widely used in prosthetics. The implanted tooth consists of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown. The abutment is a transitional element that connects the implant to the crown. This design is very convenient because the abutment and crown can be changed while the dental implant itself is implanted once and forever. Thus, implantation of teeth is an excellent solution to the problem in the absence of teeth.
Dental implants merge,
with your jawbone and provide a stable support for artificial teeth. Prostheses and bridges installed on the implants will not slide or move in the mouth – an especially important advantage when eating and talking. This safe fit helps the prostheses and bridges – as well as individual crowns located above the implants – feel more natural than conventional bridges or prostheses.
To date, about 2,000 systems for implantation of teeth exist in the world. The price of the dental implant and abutment depends on the country of manufacture, the manufacturer’s authority, the shape of the section and thread, the surface properties of the material, the dental clinic and other indicators. To choose an implant, you need to pay attention to some characteristics. First, the country of origin is important. Domestic implants may be cheap but not always of high quality. In addition, the technical design (the structure of the implant), its surface, and the way the abutment is attached to the implant are of great importance.
