Dental implants are cylindrical screws and posts that are built in the jaw bone and are used as a replacement for the natural root of the tooth. They are made of titanium. Together with the superstructure and prosthetic crown of the tooth they make a unique unit for a functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of one or more missing teeth.
Once the standard in the reparation of the missing teeth was the dental bridge. Whether it is one tooth missing or more, and we decide for a dental bridge, we would have to hone the adjacent teeth. However, for the need to modify the completely healthy adjacent teeth with honing (and somewhat potentially damaging them), today we rather choose the dental implant.
Dental implants are built into jaws, and special anchorage on them that later hold the dental prosthetics. These anchorages can have the shapes of little balls or bars.
Prosthetics on implants, as the very name suggests, are the dental prosthetics that are attached on dental implants. An excellent characteristic of these kind of prosthetics is that they can be easily removed for cleaning and hygiene, but also they are firmly attached and patients feel completely confident whether they eat or speak.
