Teeth are lost for different reasons. The loss can be predetermined by dental caries, periodontitis diseases, experienced teeth traumas or congenital teeth defects.
Teeth implants allow to recover your teeth without usage of removable denture.
While placing an implant ,dentists of Kaunas Dental Clinic „Denticija“ will thread an implant made of titanium, resembling a tooth root.When the implant integrates into the structure of your jawbone, periodontist or a doctor prosthetist will produce a dental crown.
As implantation is performed using modern, up to date materials, an artificial tooth in its shape, colour and size will remind the previously lost tooth of a patient.
Teeth implantation is not always possible to use immediately. If you are missing your teeth for a longer period of time, your jawbone can fuse over time. Therefore, due to insufficient bone quality, bone augmentation is necessary to regenerate bone for the successful placement of dental implants.
In several decades of dental implantation history the accumulated experience allow to place dental implants, providing people with restoration of chewing ability, talking function and bite (occlusion), a patient had had before the loss of teeth.
Moreover, as every tooth is produced adjusted individually, the neighboring teeth avoid drilling, they are not altered in any way and do not lose their vitality. In case of implant failure the implant is rejected and in a few months tooth implant procedure can be reiterated once more.
Dental implants is the only way for patients to avoid removable dental prosthesis and they are considered an excellent option for teeth replacement in case of serious dental defects
If cared for properly implants can last over 30 years.
