Restoring teeth with dental implants is now the most widely used and effective method of replacing lost teeth.
Using the most innovative techniques in dentistry, the Dentosan Med dental clinic provides dental implant treatments to the highest standards. Dental implants are characterised as titanium structures surgically inserted into the jawbone (either lower or upper). They serve as a support structure for a dental crown, dental bridge or denture. Basically, implants replace the roots of teeth.
Are dental implants expensive?
Dental implants are an investment in the well-being and longevity of the jawbone, restoring the most vital oral characteristics: feeding, speaking and smiling. Implants are more expensive than traditional dentures, but the long-term benefits are also much greater. Dental implants are the most durable method of replacing lost teeth, and the end result is the most natural-looking.
Advantages of dental implants
- Existing bone structure and teeth are protected: the dental implant replaces the root of a lost tooth. The implant is screwed into the jawbone, and by prosthetic loading the existing teeth are prevented from moving;
- Preventing bone loss: the day you lose your natural teeth, bone damage begins. The jawbone will drop around a quarter of an inch in just the first year after tooth loss. Your face will begin to look excessively aged without the support of your teeth and facial bones. Treatment with dental implants helps to prevent bone loss and, as a result, stop the premature ageing process;
- Improved sense and function: lack of dental structures causes chewing and speech difficulties. Patients end up avoiding certain foods that create unpleasant chewing sensations, and this also results in psychological stress - especially in social activities. Dental implants also have a positive effect on diction and restore correct articulation of words;
- Restoring self-esteem: teeth directly influence the way the patient speaks and smiles, as well as their level of confidence. Crowns on dental implants look and feel natural, completely eliminating the smile cover-up reflex.
Dental implants are very easy to care for. Basically, they require the same care as natural teeth. A rigorous hygiene routine, including mouthwash, flossing and mouthwash in addition to toothbrush and paste, will prolong the life of your implants. Regular check-ups at the dentist are also a must. Dental implants can last a lifetime if you follow all your dentist's instructions.
