Loss of teeth in humans not only causes changes in facial features, chewing dysfunction and discomfort, but also adversely affects the human digestive system, and as a consequence – the whole human body. Modern dentistry knows different ways to solve problems. But the most high quality, as well as having a better cosmetic effect of the decision – a dental implant. Let's find out what dental implants are and what their characteristics.

A dental implant is an artificial, often multi-component design that takes root in the bone of the jaw with a further coalescence, with the aim of prosthetics. In other words - implants replace the roots of missing teeth, and allow you to restore dentition. 

The operation to install dental implants with subsequent attachment to it is called the crown tooth implant. The procedure for the customer goes easy and painless. Sometimes the implant followed by bone grafting, for more reliable fastening of the implant. Provided quality installation and the further course, the implant does not need to be replaced, and is as long as possible. 

Indications for implantation:

Often, the lack of one or two no front teeth does not seem a problem, which is deeply misleading. In the absence of at least one tooth occur negative changes: the remaining teeth begin to shift, due to which increases the distance between them. This leads to a number of diseases associated with spillage of food into the interdental gap, such as caries and periodontitis.

In addition, the negative effects relating to the jaw bone. After the removal of a tooth, the bone at this point ceases to receive the load and as a consequence - bone tissue decreases. Because after a long absence tooth implantation is not without additional bone augmentation. With no more than a few teeth in a single row, the situation becomes more serious as it appears on the changes in facial features, namely the cheeks and lips. Because the indication for implantation is at least one missing tooth in a row.

  Implantation is the most progressive, the most qualitative and reliable way to recover the missing tooth units as from a medical point of view and from an aesthetic.  

In some Western countries, there are laws that the doctor is obliged to offer the patient implantation, and only then talk about other treatment options. Nevertheless, a large number of patients are choosing traditional methods of prosthetics. Many are afraid of the cost. But if you look, the difference in the cost of the implant and conventional prostheses is not large, and sometimes even less! And given the fact that the implants need to be replaced periodically, it becomes apparent long-term financial benefits of installing dental implants.
