Why get dental implants in Hungary?
Caries and periodontal diseases are among the most common causes for a tooth loss, but this can also happen in an accident. The statistics clearly shows the fact that a tooth loss is not rare: On average, the 35- to 44-year-olds have four to six missing teeth, and even a quarter of seniors is toothless.
When it comes to the treatment of the teeth gap, of course, aesthetics plays a major role. Aside from that, except for the grinding of food, an implant also helps with speaking and holds neighboring teeth in place. All this suggest filling a tooth gap as soon as possible. In addition:
Implants can prevent bone loss!
The bone of the alveolar ridge degrades unstoppable once there is no more exposure to the biting pressure. This means that the bone is lost wherever there is no tooth anchored in it. This happens even with a bridge because they only fill a tooth gap optically and the dentures between the supporting abutment teeth have no roots. That often leads to losing one or both teeth pillars in the course of the years. Bone resorption takes place at different rates depending on the patient. So it may be that it can no longer be implanted easily and thereby additional bone grafting methods will be required.
Can anyone get a dental implant?
Implants as dentures are generally made up of three parts
- The first stage is the implant itself, which is inserted directly into the jawbone.
- The second step forms a small pile (abutment), which is screwed into the implant and makes the connection between the implant and the dental prosthesis.
- The final stage is the actual denture.
There are also implants that protrude directly from the oral mucosa and so bear a dental crown. The implant can, as well as a healthy tooth, bear different forms of dentures.
These include individual crowns, bridges or even holders for removable dentures. In most cases we provide our patients with a fixed prosthesis, but for some patients, where the jawbone has receded too far, it is necessary to make removable dentures.
The implant is artificial tooth root, usually made of pure titanium. The most widely used implants have the form of a screw or a stepped cylinder.
Their surface has been specially developed for the connection to the bone and the soft tissue.
In our clinic we use highest quality implant systems by several well-known manufacturers, which are selected by the attending physician depending on the situation.
The advantages are that, even if the jawbone is radically decreased, they can replace it and ensure that the facial features of the patient normalize and not collapse due to the jaw shrinkage. In addition to that, fewer implants must be used, thereby are removable dentures less expensive, faster and easier to produce.
