There are many factors that can affect the condition of the teeth and may lead to their loss. The loss of one or more teeth alters eating habits, speech, behavior and appearance. Even if the lost tooth is restored with a conventional prosthesis (aka bridge- dentures), each year that goes by there is bone loss.
Dental implants are an excellent solution to replace not only the lost tooth, but also the tooth root. Dental implants offer a solid base for artificial teeth that will look and function like your natural teeth. Restorations with dental implants are now a reliable alternative that can be offered to our patients.
The high success rates shown in clinical trials have allayed any objections to the concept of implant placement.
The dental implant is an artificial tooth replacement (a small titanium screw of high quality and purity that replaces the root of the missing tooth). The implant is integrated into the jaw bone and becomes a support for the replacement tooth. With implants we can replace one, more or all teeth. It is used as a support for a tooth, for fixed bridges and for partial or complete dentures. Dental implants are a successful way to replace teeth, as they are perfectly integrated into the bones, allowing speech and chewing without any obstacles.
The operation for the placement of dental implants is performed under local anesthesia combined with the administration of neurolept analgesia (intoxication), which is safely done only in a hospital. In our case, at “HYGEIA- DEPARTMENT OF DENTAL IMPLANTS AND TISSUE REGENERATION” the patient will not feel any discomfort during the operation. However, it is natural, as in any surgery, that there may be some symptoms in the first two to three days, which are effectively overcome by taking common painkillers.
