My third healthy teeth in my life, Implant


Broad meaning of implant is “transplanted tissue to the body” but in dentistry, it means various forms of prosthetics that can be implanted in jaw bone. It refers to artificial teeth (artificial root, implanted teeth and root) especially to replace the loss teeth or teeth roots.
In the past, when there was teeth loss, it was very common to treat it by denture.
But implant placement treatment doesn’t pull out teeth nearby or use denture. Without using this method, artificial root is transplanted on the gum bone to make it function like natural teeth.

Advantages of implant

Comfortable when chewing food

Denture shed often and pain goes to gum when chewing food. But implant is transplanting root to gum bone, so it is very similar to the natural teeth.

Does not damage teeth nearby

Unlike bridge method, natural teeth are kept. Implant does not have to pull out teeth around.

Long life expectancy

Implant has longer lifespan than the standard prosthetics. Lifespan can be even longer depending on patient’s oral condition.

Helps jaw bone not to be absorbed

Teeth loss decreases amount of gum bone and jaw bone which can change the shape of mouth.
But implant activates gum and put back the teeth in original position, specially the front teeth. All this can happen because implant allows patients to chew food well.

Case when implant is needed :

When teeth near the damaged teeth are healthy

When last teeth are lost

When patient is having hard time eating because of the denture

When denture cannot be done because there is side effect of material or
metal that the dentist uses

When there are no teeth on the either side
