Dental implantology is the most advanced method which deal with the tooth loss problem. Surgically an implant is placed in the tooth alveolus of previously extracted tooth or artificial one, which is made just before the procedure. On the implant an abutment is placed and on the abutment a prosthetic construction is cemented – crown, bridge or denture.
Application of implants:
– For restoration of single tooth loss
– For restoration of multi tooth loss with tooth-implant and implant-implant bridges
– For total restoration with implant-implant bridge.
– For total restoration with implant stabilized denture.
Dental implantation can be single or two step. The decision which method should be used is made after bone condition examination.
After local anesthetics carefully the bone is uncovered. The artificial alveolus is made and the implant is placed in its position. After that the gum is sewed. Depending on the specific regeneration capabilities a period of 3 or 6 months is left for regeneration. After this period the abutment is place and on it the prosthetic construction is cemented.
