Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. If natural teeth are missing and a patient wishes to restore them with the help of permanent prostheses, the implants can be used. The implants are made from titanium, they are fully protected from caries and other kinds of tooth damage; the implants remain strong after long-term usage, and create a maximally natural visual appearance.

When Dental Implants Can Help?

Dental implants are used in cases when natural teeth are missing and it is necessary to restore new functional teeth. The most often cases of tooth loss are as follows:

  • tooth root inflammation which renders impossible tooth treatment and leads to tooth extraction;
  • various dental traumas;
  • parodontosis which destroys dental tissues and provokes tooth loss.

In comparison with other tooth restoration methods, for example, dental bridges, the implants allow to restore a tooth without touching the teeth nearby and without unnecessary traumas.


Generally, two implantation methods are used in modern dental implantology. It is possible to implant in a healed gum or immediately after tooth extraction.

The first method is carried out in several stages. At first, the damaged tooth is extracted. Then the jaw bone and the gum are healed and only after a few months an implant can be implanted. When the implant takes root fully, a visually attractive dental crown is put on it, which is the final stage of the procedure.

The second method is becoming more and more popular nowadays. Dental implants are implanted immediately after tooth extraction. This method has a number of important advantages:

  • the procedure is carried out in one stage; a dental surgeon and an implantology specialist are collaborating;
  • there is no loss of dental tissues because the place of tooth extraction doesn’t remain empty during the healing process;
  • gum pressure remains the same and gum adheres to the new tooth better;
  • a patient can go home with new teeth.

Important Aspects of Implantology

Dental implants can help to implant one or several teeth. In order to ensure that permanent prostheses have taken root really good, it is necessary to restore dental tissues meticulously:

  • a dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It supports visual dental part, a dental crown, and ensures the necessary support both in passive and active dental usage;
  • dental tissues adhere to a dental implant as tightly as to a natural tooth. In order for the implants to take root and serve for more than ten years, it is necessary that there is enough dental issues around them in all directions. Dental issues should enclose implants in all four sides with at least 1.5 – 2 mm;
  • the compulsory proportion between a dental implant and a crown is 1:2. It is necessary to maintain an implant’s depth and diameter. Every implant should be implanted so that it would be positioned in the very centre of the bottom of a dental crown. For one tooth at least 9 mm of dental tissues is necessary in depth and at least 5 mm across;
  • a dental implant should be connected with a dental crown on the same level where there used to be a natural tooth.

Dental Implants: What Patients Should Know

Although implants are made from synthetic materials and aren’t prone to damage, you should take care after the implants anyway. It is necessary in order to prevent dental diseases and get rid of tooth plaque.

Dental implants are fully functional, strong, and imitate the sensation of natural teeth. The successful treatment leads to a perfect result and restoration of functionality and aesthetics of the oral cavity. Implantology is one of the most expensive fields of dentistry; however, it is also one of the most efficient methods of restoration of the missing teeth.
