What is tooth implant?
When titanium like a tooth root is surgically implanted into the jawbone by the odontologist below the gum line that allows the space to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area it is called tooth implant. The implantation of tooth is also advantages for person oral health as they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Oral Care prior to tooth IMPLANTS
If the person is getting ready for tooth implantation he must be, having healthy gums and adequate bone which is required in supporting the implant, as this most important feature for having a long life successful implantation. If the bone is too thin and soft it won’t be unable to support an implant, person may require a bone graft or augmentation technique. Also if there is not adequate bone height in the upper jaw and the sinuses are too close to the jaw, person may have to go for a sinus lift.
Osseo integrated screw-shaped implants ad modum Brånemark has been reported a high level of success in edentulous jaws. single crown implant are being used increasingly more often, in single tooth loss. In Today’s world single tooth substitution is among the typical notion for implant-supported tooth replacement. In early days single tooth replacement was full of problems and occurrence of abutment screw loosening was quite high, which led to invention of CeraOne components for the Branemark implant system was developed. These components included man made ceramic caps on which porcelain is used to fuse with unrotational metal crown cemented on abutments.
When Is This Used?
Single crown implant is done in people who have one or more teeth missing. It is placed in the surgical opening that odontologist makes in the jawbone, once it attaches to the bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace the missing tooth. The crown cap which seems like the natural tooth is integrated to the implant which fills the space left by the missing tooth, but to go for this one has to have enough bone in the jaw and it should be strong enough to hold and support the implant. In case if it’s not there augmentation or bone grafting technique is applied.
The success rate for single tooth restorations involving CeraOne abutments with cemented crowns supported by Brånemark system implants is quite high as seen from people feedback that have gone this type of single crown implantation. These feedbacks were also evaluated also on the effect they had on soft tissues around the crowns and adjacent teeth.
