What does implant dentistry deal with?
Implant dentistry is a modern, reliable, and safe method of restoring beautiful smile. The use of implants is the only solution that makes it possible to achieve a durable esthetic result and improvement in masticatory function that may have been compromised by tooth loss.
Dental implants are an excellent restoration of dental function and aesthetics. Implants are used commonly and provide the patients with beautiful smile, uninhibited speaking, comfort while eating, and they are the only means to protect the patient from bone loss that occurs after tooth extraction. In comparison to dentures, bridges, unaesthetic metallic clamps, when using implants, we do not cause any danger for adjacent teeth, e.g. their loss or destruction.
Apart from improvement in life quality (getting back the sense of natural teeth), durability is the most important advantage of implants. Implant-supported prosthodontic restoration may last until the Patient’s death, and the Patient has life-long guarantee for the implant, which means that at St. Wojciech’s Hospital in Poznan the patient does not have to pay even if implantation needs to be performed once again.
Nowadays, implants are gaining more and more popularity. This is something that almost everybody has heard of, and more and more patients, e.g. in Poznan, chooses implant-based restorations instead of bridges or conventional dentures that are uncomfortable. Thanks to the use of implants, we do not have to prepare often healthy teeth if we want to restore a lost tooth, which is the situation while preparation for conventional bridges.
