A dental implant consists of a titanium screw which has been inserted in the jawbone, and a tooth crown, which has been attached to the screw. Dental implants act and look like natural teeth. For this procedure to work, it is necessary for the alveolar bone to have sufficient width and height. If bone quality needs to be increased, bone can be added.
Bone insufficiency in the mandibular jaw can be alleviated by bone from the hip crest.
Maxillary bone can be added from the maxillary sinus. The base of the maxillary sinus will be lifted to create additional space and supported with artificial bone. Later, the dental implant can be inserted.
Implants can be used for people who are in need of replacement of one or more teeth. For example, a bridge can be constructed using implants in the case of several missing teeth. In modern dentistry, a dental implant is the most physiological way to replace the missing tooth and is a long-term, painless and convenient solution for patient.
