The daily increasing cases of people who have successfully placed osseointegrated implants in their mouths ,are a major proof of how dental science is progressing.
This special titanium construction, on which ,fixed or mobile prostheses can be attached, is excellent in terms of aesthetics and functioning ability of the individual.
The osseointegrated implants are the ideal solution for replacing lost teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury.
Specifically the osseointegrated implants serve as:
• An alternative to the classic prosthetics
In case one or more teeth are lost ,with the implant placement we avoid drilling of healthy tooth tissue in order to reconstruct a prosthetic bridge.
• An alternative to dentures
Many of our fellow citizens who have lost their teeth complain that wearing dentures do not replace their natural teeth!
The most common disturbance is a reduction of the chewing ability and instability of the denture. The quality of life is severely affected by the uncertainty one feels when the denture is moving while placed in the oral cavity , during talking or even eating.
Especially younger women are bothered by wrinkles that appear around the mouth due to the loss of teeth. The implant is an ideal therapy.
