Dental implants – why you need them Have you lost one or more teeth? If you have lost one or more teeth due to accident or dental loss, you can replace your lost teeth either with dental implants or porcelain bridge / jetty. With implants you can get permanent teeth! Treatments with implants have been carried out for almost 45 years. Over the years, the method has naturally been improved, refined and, not least, rationalized. In Sweden, we can be proud of Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark’s discovery. He found that bone tissue can heal the material titanium. Thanks to his discovery, millions of people have once again got permanent teeth. Read more about this discovery on Stockholm Tandläkargrupp. You need to translate the text. What is an implant? The implant treatment is usually a surgical treatment. During surgery, the implant is screwed down into the jawbone. During the infestation phase, the cells in the jawbones base themselves against the titanium surface of the implant. The time for inoculation is approximately 8-12 weeks, but the healing is not complete until after about 2 years. After implantation, the implant is an artificial root that the dentist can attach to the tooth. When the implant can be loaded, i.e. When new teeth are put into place, it depends on bone quality and how many implants have been operated. As a rule, it takes place within 3-6 months and in the meantime you get a temporary compensation. How long does a dental implant last? It depends on many factors. One of the most important is that the treatment is performed by someone with a lot of experience and who frequently works with implant surgery. The fact that 95-98% of the number of implant operations is successful has been described in many research articles. We perform Specialist Dentist in Jaw Surgery. Dr. Björn Johansson all operations. He has a very long experience in implant treatments and has operated 10,000-year implant throughout the years. Some patients have a slightly higher risk of developing problems with their implants. The risk groups include people who smoke, have poor diabetes, have a previous periodontitis or who do not care for their oral hygiene. Here is a great video on dental implants. Check it out!
