Implantation is an embodying of the artificial tooth roots. In our clinic we use Ankylos, Straumann, Neodent and other implants. Constructively an implant is a screw inserted in the tissues of the jawbone, and afterwards it ingrows with it. The embodying process takes approximately 3-6 months. By the time the implant firmly grows into the bone, and the tooth can withstand severe mechanical loads; it means that the implant fully participates in the food chawing process.
After few months, when it incurs, gingival incision is made and through this incision a gum former is installed on the implant. It prepares soft tissues for the crown installation. After some time the gum former is removed and in its place a permanent crown is set.
Dental care after the implantation does not differ from everyday care, but more thorough approach is recommended because plaque tends to form very quickly on artificial surfaces. It is recommended to use dental floss, super floss – or interdental thread and interdental brush with one bristle row for cleaning the outer surface of the implant – crown.
