Dental implants


A dental implant is a structure which, after being placed in the jaw bone has a role to fully simulate the function of the tooth root. It is installed in the jawbone  as a support for different dental restoration or to stabilize dentures. There are also implants that are used as an aid to orthodontic treatment  with orthodontic appliances.
Except for special cases (radio and chemo therapy), the human body is fully capable to accept implants because they are usually made from titanium, a material that does not cause allergic reactions nor reactions to foreign bodies it is non-toxic nor mutagenic and  its incorporation into the jawbone stimulate its growth and becomes the structural and functional  entirety. Proper surgical techniques, implants produced by reliable manufacturers and the implementation of proper diagnostic process 
guarantee long implants duration.
When one tooth is missing and there is a sufficient quantity of bone, healthy gums, it is advisable to place an implant as this does not damage adjacent teeth. The bridge that should compensate the lack of one tooth requires milling of the two adjacent teeth that support the bridge. Bridge should be made in cases where there are no conditions for implant surgery and when the teeth that should support the 
bridge, have indications for crowns and when it is the patients preference.
The implant is surgically placed under local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel pain. When the effects of local anesthesia ware of, pain ,if it appears, can be eliminated by taking painkillers.

Dental implants are the best solution for compensation the loss of the tooth or group of teeth. A dental implant is specially designed structure placed in the jawbone whose role is to fully simulate the function of the tooth root. Dental implants are placed with a special surgical technique into the jawbone as a supporting feature for different prosthetic restoration or stabilizer of removable dentures. There are also implants that are used as an aid to orthodontic treatment with orthodontic appliances. Except in special cases, the body of a healthy person is fully capable to accept implants because they are made of biocompatible material which does not cause allergic reactions or reactions to foreign bodies, it is neither toxic nor mutagenic and after its installation it stimulates the jawbone growth and lids to the structural and functional integrity. Proper surgical techniques, implants produced by reliable manufacturers and adequate diagnostic guarantee long implants durability. In our practice, we use only implant systems of leading world manufacturers that meet ISO standards (Straumann and Nobel Biocare) so that we, as a clinic as well as a manufacturer can provide warranty. Immediately after implant placement, temporary crowns, bridges or dentures can be made. The second, definitive prosthetic faze requires usually intermediate period of four to six months. This period is necessary to lead to a bone> implant bonding (osseointegration). The implant is surgically installed (minimally invasive surgery) under local anesthesia so the patient does not feel pain nor discomfort. 24 h after implant placement, patient can return to normal activities. With the exception of children, where the growth and development of jaws have not been completed, there is no age limit for implant placement. If conditions for implant placement are fulfilled, the patient age is not an obstacle. Even when these conditions are unfavorable, with certain surgical procedures (augmentation of alveolar ridge, sinus lift, etc.) they can be corrected. dr.Nikica Burgermeister , Specialist in Oral Surgery , conducts the Implant Surgery in Omnident..
