What is implantology?
Dental implantology is a dental discipline that deals with implant placement in the toothless bone of the upper and lower jaws to replace the root of a lost tooth. Dental implantology is almost 40 years old and we can say that today it is a completely perfected and established dental discipline. She is a scientifically based, experimentally and clinically validated and technologically advanced multidisciplinary profession.
Dental implantology deals with the “implantation” of artificial root into bone. Modern dental implants are made of titanium and have the shape of a screw. The newly planted root serves as a support for crowns, bridges and dentures. Implants provide the ability to solve the problem of partial or complete toothlessness without unpopular dentures, and if the situation has to be addressed with a prosthesis, then at least so that it is firmly anchored on the implants.
People who have to wear a denture due to tooth loss often encounter problems such as unstable dentures, loss of taste, urge to vomit, or simply a foreign body feeling in the mouth. In addition, loss of confidence is often accompanied by a decrease in quality of life.
Implants also save on existing healthy teeth. If you have lost a tooth, it is not necessary to brush your teeth to make it to the bridge, but to replace the lost tooth with an implant, leaving the adjacent teeth intact.
