Dental Implantation

Teeth loss is one of the serious problems that face us. As tooth extraction and loss result in a failure of the oral function and inability to perform its tasks in chewing food as the dental implantation process is the best solution to compensate for what has been lost.

What is the process of dental implant?

Dental implants are considered as the third and newest alternative for lost teeth compensation. As this method is considered the most successful since it does not affect the teeth and their surrounding tissues in any way. Dental implants compensate for lost tooth roots by means of titanium supports, and to ensure the success of dental implants, certain conditions must be met, including:
– The patient should be free from chronical diseases that affect the condition of the bones, such as advanced cases of diabetes and osteoporosis.
– Having an adequate amount of jaw bones, as this type of bones is considered a functional type, which is often eroded when a tooth is lost.
– To ensure a successful transplant, the missing bone must first be replaced, the dentist then can carry on with the implantation process.
– Ensure that the bone -to be implanted- is far from the nasal cavities and the jaw nerves. This is the dentist’s task as it is evaluated by analyzes and x-rays.
– And of course, maintain oral and dental health.

How to start a dental implant?

After the patient decides to have dental implants and chooses the appropriate dentist, the dentist first begins a full examination of the patient’s mouth. This examination does not differ much from the periodic and routine examinations. In addition to performing a CT scan of the jaws, panoramic x-rays, and sometimes blood and calcium analyzes. Examination of adjacent teeth and oral health in general is very important, as a clean oral environment must be provided to receive dental implants. The dentist instructs the patient to the appropriate instructions to maintain oral and dental hygiene. Also, he/she instructs the patient to adopt healthy social habits such as quitting smoking or temporarily limiting it during transplant process.

Removable Implants

Fixed or moving fixtures depend on the surrounding teeth to obtain stability. Resistance to movement and loosening while performing their function, and the part implanted in the bone of the implanted tooth works to stabilize and support the tooth without compromising any of the teeth or surrounding tissues.
Mobile prostheses are now rarely used as a temporary solution, and can be used on older adults in full dentures and supported by implants underneath.

Fixed Implants

It is used to replace one or more missing teeth, but the headpieces or fixed fixtures have other purposes. They are used as another alternative in cases where it is difficult to fill the tooth without exposing it to the risk of fracture or exposure of the nerve, and it can also be used to beautify the shape of the tooth, especially for the front teeth that may suffer from dyes and warps.

If the number of missing teeth is large, the denture is loaded over the adjacent years and the dental implants are installed within 72 hours.
