Loss of teeth may be the result of tooth decay, gum disease, erosion, a congenital defect, a failed dental treatment or a trauma caused to the mouth. A situation in which a person suffers from missing teeth may adversely affect the chewing ability, the talking ability and the person’s facial appearance. Consequently, the person’s self-confidence and ability to conduct himself naturally and freely are impaired.
Dental implantology provides a functional and esthetic, permanent and immediate solution. While in the past the solution for a missing tooth or several missing teeth was a bridge or removable dentures, nowadays, a treatment by means of dental implants is increasingly more common, since the use of implants provides a more durable solution than the other rehabilitation methods.
In addition to implants as a solution for loss of teeth, in many cases using them in the course of other rehabilitation processes allows to achieve better results. For instance, dental implants serve for supporting crowns, which replace missing teeth or supporting the bridge, which replaces missing teeth.
An implant is a metal screw generally made of titanium. It serves as a substitute for the natural teeth root thus assisting in mouth rehabilitation. Dental implantology restores the patients’ chewing ability, improves their esthetic appearance thus contributing to their self-confidence.
The most significant advantage of a treatment by means of dental implants as against other treatments, such as a bridge, is the fact that it is performed regardless of the condition of the other teeth. An additional advantage is often expressed in the possibility to carry out tooth extraction and implantology on the same day. Moreover, when the implants are sufficiently stable, it is possible to install instantly onto them a structure and a crown at the same treatment.
Furthermore, it is important to understand that, in terms of functionality, dentures provide a solution only to chewing. However, the use of dental implants allows also the preservation of the jawbone, since they assist in transferring the chewing forces to the jawbone thus helping to preserve its strength and stability over time.
To ensure the dental implantology treatment success there is need to examine the anatomic structure of the patient’s jaw, and on this basis to decide what the capability of loading the implants is, which optimal results can be obtained, and in what way. The doctor should decide, based on the patient’s jaw conditions, which implantology method is desirable, what should the implant’s measures be (its length and width), where it should be placed and in what angle to load it.
Most types of dental implantation treatments are suitable only if the jaw conditions allows the absorption of dental implants. Nevertheless, there are cases in which patients are lacking bone or have a bone, which is too thin for ordinary dental implantology. The Basal Implantology Center specializes in treating such cases, and is, in fact, able to offer and adjust the best solution of each patient, even for patients inflicted with lack of bone. In such cases, the center offers Basal implantology, dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone, without sinus lifting and bone transplantation.
The staff of specialists at the Basal Implantology Center holds extensive experience and very high success percentages in dental implantology treatments. We are very strict about professional service, which includes meticulous monitoring of the patient’s condition also in the long term after the end of the treatment.
