Modern implant dentistry is still a mysterious field of knowledge for many patients who are ready for dental implant treatment. However, the popularization of knowledge about dental implants made it possible for everyone to understand that they are placed, as a support for a dental prosthesis. It would be wrong not to tell that in addition to implants, implants dentistry also deals with many materials and areas.
Today, dental implants – are one of the remarkable achievements in restorative dentistry, whose possibilities are not limited such parameters as bone loss or reduction of the amount of gingival mucosa around the implant. All of these unsolvable difficulties that restrict the ability of dental implantologists, are now easy and simple to decide due to different design features of implants and additional surgical techniques developed to increase bone and soft tissue. It all depends on time and resources which are required for the whole procedure and which the patient and a dental specialist, working with interesting clinical situations, are ready to spend.
Implant dentistry is a branch of dental surgery, that aims to achieve an excellent copy of nature. That is why modern dental materials and designs are not inferior to natural teeth. It took a lot of time to reach such a level of ergonomics, although the practical result was received over 70 years ago. Bronemark was the first who then placed first implants that successfully integrated and served their owners until the present day. Basic principles of implant dentistry were formulated during its development, getting more and more technological and methodological updates and became the basis for a standard surgical protocol of a dental implant placement.
What has changed since then? How great are possibilities of implant dentistry and what kind of help this method of restorative dentistry may offer its patients? Modern dental implants are made of bio-compatible materials: titanium and zirconia, which do not cause adverse reactions in your body, do not change their properties throughout the entire service life of the implant, and successfully integrate with the bone.
Except quality materials used for implant manufacture, the most significant achievement of implant dentistry which have been developing today, is guided tissue regeneration using titanium-reinforced absorbable and non-absorbable membranes. Growth factors that enhance and accelerate osseointegration are also new developments in implant dentistry. These are so-called bone proteins which make bone cells divide more rapidly to reduce a six-months healing period to 2-3months.
The specialists of the company Bio3 Implants also remind about such innovative surface treatment as anodizing, which creates conditions for better interaction of bone cells with micro porous surface structures of the implant and guarantees its rapid healing.
