You say you're having trouble eating? Your
teeth fall out and rub sores? There are spaces in your mouth
that you want fixed but you don't want to damage good teeth to
make bridges? Well, dental implants may be the perfect answer
Dental Implantology or the science of placing artificial
teeth directly into the bone has been a perfected science for
more than twenty years. Today, we are seeing routine placement
of dental implants with success rates of 90 to 97% for 10 years
or longer. This means that if you have had difficulty with removable
teeth and want them as strong as they were when they were natural,
they can be that strong again. We can even make a single tooth
implant that rivals the natural one in strength and cosmetic
appearance. Miraculous you say? Not really.
Titanium has been used in medicine for
decades, successfully replacing hips and knees joints. Dentistry
is just taking advantage of this technology, applying it to the
art of chewing. These titanium teeth are "ankylosed"
or chemically bonded directly to the bone. It doesn't get any
stronger than that!
