Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants

A dental implant is a fixed prosthesis used to cover the space left free by one or more teeth. The prosthesis takes on the function of the natural root, on which the ceramic capsule is applied.
Thanks to the restoration of the missing teeth, chewing is no longer compromised, so it benefits the digestion and the health of the entire oral cavity.
Three main parts make up a dental implant:
1.The implant itself or screw, which is the root of the tooth. It has a cylindrical shape similar to a screw. The screw is inserted inside the mandibular or maxillary bone to allow the union with the prosthesis. This process is called osseointegration. It will enable the correct integration of the artificial root with the bone tissue and the solidity of the dental implant.
2.The abutment, which is a small metal or ceramic structure that connects the endosseous screw to the dental prosthesis;
3.The prosthesis is the artificial crown that visually replaces the missing natural tooth. It is the outer part of the dental implant that covers the toothless area and performs the main functions of the tooth.

Dental Implants

The size of a dental implant depends on the amount of maxillary or mandibular bone available. The larger the bone tissue available, the longer the endosseous screw and vice versa.
The dental implant serves as a pillar and base for the placement of the dental prosthesis. In this way, the patient can go back to eating, talking and smiling without noticing anything foreign or annoying in the mouth.
The most advanced dental implants are made with biocompatible materials to minimize the risk of rejection and promote osseointegration.
The preferred material for the screw is titanium, as it responds to those characteristics of biocompatibility that allow to reduce the risk of trauma from rejection and promote complete integration between the implant and the bone.
The prosthesis is usually made of ceramic, which is a very resistant material that allows having an artificial tooth utterly similar to the natural one.

When is a dental implant needed?

The application of a dental implant is used:
to restore the compromised masticatory and phonetic function;
to give back a normal aesthetic aspect to the smile;
to prevent the movement of healthy teeth close to the toothless area;
to allow the correct distribution of the so-called bite force on the teeth.

Alternative Treatments to Dental implants?

The bridge is a dental prosthesis formed by three or more crowns (fake teeth) that allows covering the space left by a lost tooth.
The two teeth close to the missing one are filed down and reduced so that they act as pillars of the bridge. The prosthesis will then be glued to these two teeth.
If you don’t have pillar teeth, you won’t be able to install the dental bridge.
The treatment is discreetly invasive. Also, the filed teeth will have more problems over the years (caries, nerve death) than an intact tooth.
The main advantage of the dental bridge over natural teeth is that it does not require surgery. So if you have health problems that do not allow you to undergo surgery, this is the best solution for you.
Another positive aspect of the bridge is that you can have new teeth in no time. You can go back to chewing with your final teeth after only 4-6 weeks.
