What are dental implants?
Dental tooth implant is a thin titanium rod of different length and with different threads. In the process of installation, it is completely screwed it into the bone tissue, and on top of it is fixed the abutment, and then the crown. As a result, it is similar to the native tooth in the mouth, no matter that its artificial, because it looks like a twin. Some time ago it was impossible even to dream about it.
What is the sense of the problem: you need to install dental implants in time
To install or to wait? The second is to postpone the idea for later. Most often our patients choose this option of non-treatment. They wait a few years after removal of the native tooth, and only then come for come for implantation. And this is one of the most unforgivable mistakes, both from the point of view of physiology, and from the point of view of the financial expenses.
Bone tissue in the place of rejected tooth becomes thinner with the flow of time. And this means that than longer you will delay implantation, the more likely that the bone of the upper or lower jaw will not be wide and high enough to secure the implant securely.
And if you postpone implantation, the lack of volume of bone tissue will be not the only drawback. In the places, where the tooth was rejected, the skin sags like a spring in an old bed. As a result, you look older than your age. This problem can be fixed, just that you need to make up your mind and come to the procedure.
If the bone tissue is not sufficient to install a titanium prosthesis, we offer to our patients 2 options: of teeth restoration;
- bridge prosthetics;
- bone plastic surgery followed by implantation.
In the first case treatment is less effective, and in the second case it is more expensive (by time, money and period of complete engraftment). But no one says that it is not possible.
