Implantology marks one of the greatest breakthroughs in dentistry of recent decades. It enables artificial tooth roots to be attached to the jaw, which resemble their natural predecessors perfectly.
In the case of tooth loss, there are several ways to attach the substitution. In general, they require the filing down of a substantial area of healthy tooth matter. For example, to attach a bridge, the two neighbouring teeth are shaped in such a way so as to serve as pillars. The loss of healthy tissue is not made up for by the stability of the bridge – this is different with an implant, which is as solid as a natural tooth root. After attaching it to the jaw, it grows into the surrounding tissue. It goes without saying that the material used is also 100 per cent suitable for implantation in the human body. Thanks to the screw thread, a variety of tooth substitutes can be attached to the implant; for example, crowns, bridges or dentures. If these are damaged, they can be easily taken off and repaired or replaced.
