About dental implants
What is a dental implant
Modern implants are the result of sophisticated medical research and the most up-to-date bio-engineering that have established the effectiveness of osseo-integration. Similarly to vital organ transplants such as the heart or as with bone replacements, (e.g. the hip), the medical world has applied this extensive know-how to dentistry, bringing it the same high levels. Implants are available in various designs, shape and sizes that adapt to all personal and therapeutic requirements. The most commonly used is the titanium pillar.
Why have a dental implant?
The birth of a new tooth in a most natural way. Our parents and grandparents and all previous generations were resigned to the fact that a lost tooth couldn’t be replaced: in modern times, in the 20th century, new technologies and increased know-how enabled dentists to develop techniques such as bridges as well as removable prostheses and full dentures, depending on how many teeth needed replacing. It was often necessary, however, to position these substitutes on remaining teeth that had to be filed down and unavoidably ruined.
Titanium dental implants
Medical research in the last few decades has provided a number of certainties, among which the scientific proof concerning the effectiveness of osseo-integration using materials such as titanium. This is the case with dental implants. A natural tooth that is lost due to traumatic or pathological reasons can today be replaced with an implant in titanium, an exceptionally resistant and biocompatible material. The implant becomes the new root onto which a pillar is screwed, in titanium or other materials. Onto this the new tooth is attached: essential for chewing and
