Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth to those who lost some or all their teeth. Shaped like a titanium screw, dental implant is inserted into the jawbone acting as a root tooth substitute. The implant fuses with the bone in a biological process called osseointegration, which takes months. The implants allow dental reconstruction by supporting dental prosthesis such as a crown or bridge.
Implants can also serve as a prosthetic anchor for removable dentures, insuring a greater stability in the oral cavity and a better quality of life.
With cutting edge technology in implants development, the success rates of dental implants and other alternative solutions have exceeded 90%. It should be acknowledged that a successful osseointegration depends on various parameters ranging from the patient’s health to the condition of the tissue treated
