Tooth Implants Veneers

in Teeth

Teeth implants can be used to replace missing teeth for almost any patient. Regardless of the way teeth were lost or the current condition of the mouth, teeth and gums, there is usually something a dental surgeon can do for each patient, with the number of necessary teeth implants varying with the severity of tooth loss.

The success rate of implants is dependent upon the stability that is achieved when implants are first placed. The more stable they are the more likely they are to last a long time. It is generally understood that the success rate of the surgery is around about 95%.

Teeth implants consist of a screw shaped titanium piece which is implanted directly onto the bone, it then fuses with the bone during the healing process. The ability to fuse in this way is unique to titanium, which is hypoallergenic, hence the high success level of the treatment. The process of fusing with the bone in the jaw does necessitate that there is bone of sufficient quality and quantity in the area of the implant. This means that those patients with poor bone quality may find that a bone graft or other alternative is required before they can undergo teeth implants treatments. Where graft isn't possible, a denture can be fitted to prosthetic gum made from acrylic or ceramic. This is then held in place by push fixtures so that they can easily be removed for cleaning.Teeth implants can be used to replace missing teeth for almost any patient.
