Who can benefit from an implant?

Who can benefit from an implant?

Implantation procedures are suitable for:

  • Adults – the condition that has to be fulfilled is the end of bone development and full contour of maxilla and mandible;
  • Patients whose general health is within normal limits – some previous or present systemic diseases have negative influence on implant osseointegration and wound healing.

There is no upper age limit in implant dentistry.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Higher self-confidence and better quality of life
  • Implant-based restorations are much smaller than conventional dentures, and that is why they are more natural and function better when they restore missing teeth
  • There is no need for preparing adjacent teeth, which is the case when a bridge is used for replacing missing teeth.
  • Because of the strong bond between the bone and an implant, there are no restrictions while eating. Hard fruit and vegetables, as well as high-fibre foods, are an important part of the diet.
  • Conventional implant-based dentures are more comfortable while eating, laughing, coughing etc.
  • Implants help prevent the Patient from losing further teeth and bone.
  • Better oral hygiene.
  • Dental implants are durable.
