Why Titanium Implants?
Titanium is a metal that is highly compatible with tissue, it is now used everywhere in medicine. In dentistry, titanium implants forge a special connection with the bone thanks to cellular compatibility. After an initial process lasting two to six months, a prosthesis called an upper structure is prepared for the implant. Today, implants are undoubtedly the best alternative to natural teeth.
What are Implants Recommended for?
Implants can become necessary if a patient is unable to use his or her prostheses due to the disappearance of bone tissue (osteolysis). Prostheses can then be placed over the implants, increasing retention. In the event of the loss of molar teeth, a fixed bridge may be inserted using a few implants, instead of a removable partial prosthesis. If a patient loses just a single tooth, a single implant can be placed in lieu of that tooth, maintaining the adjacent teeth. Implants can also help in maintaining the stability of dental bridges. If a gap is too large, a dental bridge may not be strong enough so one or two implants may be used to improve the support and durability of the bridge.
