Dental Implant Case Study

We have a certain expertise in a number of dental fields and dental implants is one of these. Dental implants are widely acknowledged as being the best replacement for missing teeth or failing teeth. For those of you that are not aware of dental implants, here are a few facts: FACTS ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS 1. Implants are made from titanium 2. Titanium is bio compatible with the human body. It is also used in hip replacements for example. 3. The jaw bone is able to grow around and fuse to the dental implants- a process called osseointegration. 4. Teeth attached to the dental implants are called implant retained crowns. They are not implants. 5. The success rate of implants is very high, approaching 90% in general and higher. This is one of the highest success rate in dentistry. 6. The teeth implants will not decay or ever need a root canal treatment. However, general maintenance is required and thorough cleaning. 7. There are many systems available. Each of these systems will have evidence supporting their success. It is important to discuss this with your dentist. Our case study involves the replacement of a back tooth with an Astra Tech dental implant.
