What are dental implant advantages? Dental implant is a thin pin that is made of pure Titanium and is compatible with the body. This pin is inserted in jaw bone. Dentures are connected to dental implant. It takes 3 to 6 months for bone restoration and growth around the dental implant.

Dental implant is a thin pin that is made of pure Titanium and is compatible with the body. This pin is inserted in jaw bone. Dentures are connected to dental implant. It takes 3 to 6 months for bone restoration and growth around the dental implant.
The dentist should consider some factors for selecting dental implant type including available bone, bone strength and needed time for inserting implant. In some cases, if the available bone is not enough for inserting dental implant, we can take some bones from other parts for bone graft.
The type of dental implant, for example screw or screw-less implant, is selected based on bone hardness. Dental implant can be inserted immediately after pulling out the tooth or a long time after healing the scars. Dental implant appearance is similar to natural dental root.
If the tooth is lost and no replacement is considered for it, bone depletion and problems for chewing food and leaning adjacent teeth are avoidable. So, it is necessary to insert dental implant instead of lost teeth.
Dental implant has several advantages. We are going to explain them below. The most important advantage of dental implant is in terms of aesthetic aspects and increasing patient’s self-confidence. It is used instead of lost teeth.
The next point about dental implant is preserving adjacent teeth structures. The next point is preserving patient’s oral health. Dental implant preserves blood vessels of the gums against damages. Other good advantage of dental implant is that it can be used for smokers. Implant improves patient’s appearance.
Masticatory and face styling muscles are preserved by implant. Patients feel comfortable while eating and chewing food. Dental appearance is very natural. Patients with dental implants talk better than patients with dentures. Dental implant increases the possibility of preserving remained bone and decreases bone depletion rate. It can preserve bone height and width.
Tooth bone quality is kept with dental implant without any changes and then jaw bone will always remain uniform. Dentures haven’t the above mentioned specifications.
Dental implant requires that healthy gums and enough bone for implant. It is necessary to maintain implant by observing health points and regular dentist examinations.
Dental implant is made of Titanium alloy. It can be inserted inside the jaw bones in upper and lower jaws; then, dental prosthesis is fixed. Dental implant alloy (Titanium) is resistant against oxygen, acid and corrosion. Dental implant is considered as a stable mainstay for dentures. Bridges on dental implant and dentures are motionless. Dental implant stable mainstays help the dentures, bridges and crown function.
Is it possible to have dental implant for the patients with severe depleted bones? When the jaw bone is severely depleted; for example, in an accident or long-term usage of removable dentures or tumors; it is not possible to use artificial materials for bone restoration. On the other hand, it is not possible to extract enough bone from the patient’s oral cavity. In these cases, the implant expert has to extract needed bone for implant treatment from other parts of the patient’s body such as rib or hip bone. These cases are very rare and are considered as the last solutions for implant.
Dental implants are made of pure Titanium or its alloys so they are not susceptible to decay as natural teeth but it doesn’t mean that there is no need for special care of implants or observing dental implant health points. If the main health points are not observed for dental implants; microbes and germs accumulated around the implant and will cause bone decay. In this case, damages to dental implant are very sever and may even destroy it completely.
What is a dental implant that lasts for 100 years? Implant is a Titanium piece with biologic specifications. It means it is compatible with body texture and it is very resistance against oxygen, acid and corrosion. Titanium causes no allergy in body so, foreign objects can’t influence on body by it. Titanium is compatible with human body.
