Dental implant - an identical substitute for a natural tooth
Dental implant - an identical substitute for a natural tooth. A dental implant is an ideal solution for people who have lost their natural tooth for various reasons and therefore do not ensure a full quality of life. Lack of teeth causes serious discomfort. Dental implantation is a dental procedure that allows you to replace lost natural teeth in any part of the oral cavity. They are replaced by artificial teeth that are visually and functionally identical to a person's natural teeth. Unlike traditional prosthetic methods, dental implants are physiologically more suitable for the natural structure of the human oral cavity. They fully preserve the aesthetic appearance and functionality of natural teeth.
Dental implantation process
The dental implantation process consists of two main stages. In the first, surgical stage, a dental implant is inserted and a dental implant is inserted into the jawbone, as well as a gum is placed around the future tooth. In the second stage of prosthetics, a dental impression is taken and a crown is made. The dental implant procedure is performed under sterile conditions in the dentist's office using local anesthesia.
- The dentist opens the patient's gums to allow access to the jawbone.
- A channel is created in the jawbone that exactly matches the selected dental implant in shape and size. If the dentist finds that the amount of bone needed to insert the dental implant is missing, the bone is enlarged before the canal is formed and the tooth is implanted.
- The dental implant is inserted (screwed) into the prepared canal and covered with a gum.
- The process continues after 2 to 6 months, during which the osteointegration process (adhesion of the dental implant to the bone) has taken place. An X-ray examination is performed to check this. The exact period of time after which the dental implantation process is continued (usually 2 to 6 months) is determined by the dentist for each patient individually, taking into account the patient's jawbone structure and general health.
- After the dental implant has successfully fused to the jaw bone, the dentist opens the patient's gums and inserts a gum former into the dental implant for about 2 weeks to create the correct contours of the gum around the future tooth.
- After 2 weeks, the prosthetic phase begins. The patient's dental impression is taken in order to make a permanent prosthetic structure in the dental technical laboratory.
- In the dental technical laboratory, a dental crown is individually tailored to the patient, taking into account the shape and tone of the patient's teeth, the shape of the face, as well as the patient's wishes.
- Once the dental crown is made, the dentist places it in the patient's mouth and fixes it with temporary cement for a few months to make adjustments if necessary.
- When the dentist finds that the crown is fully suitable for the patient, it is already fixed with permanent cement.
- The patient should have X-rays performed periodically to assess the function of the inserted dental implant.
