What are dental implants ?
The most common answer on that question would be , that dental implants represent an artificial root of the tooth, and after several months, suprastructure ( metal ceramic , zirconia crown ,etc. ) will be added on it.
Who are potential patients for implant placement ? First of all , we must say that crucial thing for the patient is high level oral hygiene . That is the most important thing in survival implant rate. Also, some chronical diseases are contraindications for implant placement ( radiation in head and neck area, osteoporosis, etc. ) After clinical examination, implant measurements on 3d scan should be done. Enough height and bone thickness is very important, and by that we choose an adequate implant . The next step is surgery, and implant placement in local anesthesia. Resting period is about 7 days , and after that sutures should be removed.
General health conditions , chronical diseases and bad habits are primary thigs that someone is candidate for implant placement ,and someone is not .
- Untreated sugar disease
- Radiation therapy in head and neck region
- High tobacco addiction
- Inappropriate oral hygiene
