Dental implants are the most important breakthroughs in the field of dentistry. Dental implants have the ability to serve as substitutes for natural tooth roots. These devices are attached to the jaw bone and are considered safe and effective to support the prosthesis, screws or crowns and fixed bridges.
Nowadays, the implants are produced most often of a special metal called titanium, consistent with the jaw bone. In fact, the bone likes titanium so that it fuses with the implant. The implant is a small lug exceeding the gingival tissue. Many of them can be placed by taking into account the importance of the space to be filled. Crowns, bridges or dentures are placed over the implants.
The positioning of an implant is done on several appointments at the dentist, specifically a period of three months. To do this, two types of surgery are used: one for positioning the implant in the bone and the other to expose the upper part of the implant. The dentist then places the prosthesis on the implant. Once the implant is made, you can use it immediately without feeling any discomfort.
