There is new hope for those needing to replace lost or damaged teeth.
In recent years there have been great advances in the dental profession, which have enabled many people who are missing a few or even all of their teeth, or those with severe periodontal diseases, to have dental implants. This is an option that returns the teeth to their natural state or sometimes even better than they ever were!
There is no use of artificial materials in this process and, additionally, the healthy teeth next to the repaired ones will not be affected in any way.
Another advantage of dental implants is that they are long lasting. They are rooted to the jawbone in a similar manner to the pre-existing tooth. Unlike previous procedures, dentures bridges and the like, a dental implant can be installed on the same day the existing teeth are removed to restore a beautiful smile. The implants are firmly affixed, do not shake loose, and can last a lifetime.
The design of a dental implant for a single tooth has three parts. First, the crown is the topmost part and is what is visible inside the mouth. This layer is attached to the second layer, which is an abutment that rests at the gum line. Finally, a titanium implant base is fused to the jawbone. The three come together to give the teeth a lovely and natural look. This is a great way to restore the dentition to its natural form without using irritating plastic materials.

Dental Implant History
Bone implant technology began in 1952 from an experiment carried out by a Swedish professor by the name Per-Ingvar Branemark. He made use of titanium implants in a way to understand the flow of blood in the bone. Later on he found out that the implant had completely integrated with the bone, and called this discovery “osseo-integration,” which would later be used on human beings suffering from bone injuries.
In 1965, Gosta Larson, who suffered from tooth loss due to jaw deformities, was the first patient to have a dental implant. Later, research in this area refined the implants with a high success rate; indeed, there are records of patients whose implants have lasted for more than 40 years. In recent years this procedure has had a success rate of 96% and in 2006 there were over 1.7 million implants successfully performed. It has become the best option for the replacement of teeth.
