Dental implantation is one of the most common methods for replenishing the dentition, in the absence of one or more teeth. Modern implants are no different from a real tooth, ideally repeating the shape and shade.
When do I need to put implants?
The decision to put an implant in dentistry or do without it depends on the desire of each patient. But, there are clinical situations where, after a tooth loss occurs, it is impossible to ignore the visit to a specialist.
Dental implants should be placed if:
- Due to the loss of a tooth, a speech defect has occurred;
- Aesthetic appeal is critically impaired;
- There is a high tendency to wear teeth;
- There is a change in the patient’s appearance (pathology of the jaw develops).
These situations are not recommended to be ignored and should immediately seek the help of a specialist.
Dental implantation has several advantages, including:
- High level of aesthetic appeal. An artificial tooth is neatly and evenly selected in a size that is perfect for the patient. Also, a qualified specialist chooses the color of the material, which is identical to the natural teeth in the patient’s oral cavity;
- The ability to recover a large number of units. Dental implants do not cause any harm to the patient, due to which it is possible to restore one or more missing teeth in certain periods;
- High level of quality. The material used for making implants is durable and of high quality, which makes it possible to chew food and eat solid foods without any problems;
- The probability of an implant being perceived by the body is quite high. An artificial tooth survives in the patient’s oral cavity in about 95% of 100;
- According to reviews, the surrounding can not determine the artificial origin of the tooth.
Also, the attractiveness of the procedure is that there are only a few negative implantation factors. The main is a complication after the installation of the tooth (it has a rather low probability and is mainly associated with intolerance to anesthesia). The first days after the implant is installed, there can be a certain pain at the site of the operation, and discomfort that goes away at the stage of addiction.
A significant drawback is the price of the procedure. Due to the high aesthetics and quality of the implant, the procedure is somewhat more expensive than ordinary dental fillings.
How to prepare for the implantation procedure?
Dental implantation – Surgery, which contains almost no contraindications and risks to the life of the patient. The installation of the implant takes place in several stages, among which preparation takes an important place.
A few hours before the tooth implantation procedure, it is not recommended to eat and drink water. The best option is a small amount of easily digestible food. From the drinks it is recommended to take pure water without sugar. Tea, coffee and other coloring drinks should be excluded or minimized.
On the day when surgical implantation of the tooth is planned, you should refuse to accept alcohol and smoking. Also, you should not independently prescribe and take medications of a sedative spectrum of action.
Half an hour before surgery, the doctor may ask you to carefully brush your teeth. But, in some cases (in the presence of plaque and solid deposits), a comprehensive professional teeth cleaning can be carried out.
Dental implantation in Kiev is carried out in a fairly short time, and always with the use of painkillers. This allows patients to not feel discomfort and pain.
Are there any contraindications for implantation of teeth?
Contraindications to the procedure are divided into two groups:
Relative contraindications include age of patients. As a rule, high-quality dental implants take root in patients aged from 18 to 70 years. Implantation of teeth in children can cause the risk of rejection due to insufficient development of bone tissue. It is not recommended to install implants during pregnancy or breastfeeding. In this case, you should wait for the right moment and resort to implantation.
Absolute contraindications include severe systemic diseases – AIDS, oncological damage to the body.
