What do you know about dental implants?
What are these famous dental implants? How are they used to replace missing teeth? Who is a candidate for dental implants? How to maintain them?
In the last 25 years, dental implantology has revolutionized the field of dentistry. It is a scientific innovation and a clinical application that requires expertise in dental surgery. The main mission of dental implants is to replace the lost root of one or more teeth. These are fixed in the bone of the jaw to stabilize it and prevent its loss. They are not visible after the procedure as they are used to attach crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dental implants are strong and biocompatible, that is, they are not rejected by the body. They help to eat, smile, talk and appear completely natural, which brings a physical and psychological well-being.
Are you a candidate for dental implants?
In general, if you have missing teeth, you are a candidate for dental implants. However, it is important that you are in good health, as some diseases may affect the choice of dental implants.
For example, diabetes, cancer, or periodontal disease can affect the fusion of dental implants with jaw bones. It is therefore essential to inform your dentist of your medical status and all the medications you are taking.
How to maintain a dental implant?
Dental implants require specific maintenance and good oral hygiene daily. This maintenance is reflected in brushing and flossing every day.
Regular check-up with your dentist is also important, as cleaning dental implants requires special instruments that help preserve the metal surface of dental implants. The regular examination will also allow your dentist to check the stability of the implants and the operation of the crowns, bridge or prostheses.
