Getting an implant. Your frequently asked questions will now be answered!

What is an implant that I can get?

An implant is a screw made of titanium. This is referred to as a specially designed screw. It works just like a tooth root, so looks like a tooth root. When you get an implant, you get an artificial tooth root. Getting an implant allows you to get an artificial, new tooth when you are missing a tooth.

If you get an implant, it must be made of titanium?

Titanium is a neutral metal from a biological point of view, so it is rounded off by bone tissue. In addition, the load bearing capacity of titanium is very high, which is important when implants are obtained. In medicine, titanium is used with preference, especially in operations of the bone tissue, where the precise work, constancy and carrying capacity are decisive.

How is an implant produced that I can get?

The manufacturers turn it from titanium bats, then the surface is treated differently, so that the surface becomes brittle, streaky. This turning is only possible by means of so-called milling machines.

Why is the surface of implants important when you get an implant?

The surface is important because the bone cells must grow in these strips. If the surface were smooth, the bone cells could not grow and the load bearing capacity would be too low.

What is still to be observed in an implant?

Some manufacturers inject a solution on the surface of the titanium screw (implant screw), which helps with the ingrowth of the bone cells in the strips. These processing methods are protected by the manufacturers (defended), the producers are in competition with each other.

What is the use of an implant after I get it?

An implant is used to replace missing teeth only after you have received them. An implant can hold crowns and bridges. For example, in the case of total tooth loss, implants can hold a fixed bridge.

How does getting an implant work?

It is an oral-surgical intervention. In the bone, the place of the implant screw has to be designed, where the implant screw is inserted. The intervention is carried out under local anesthesia. Nowadays, an implant is a rutin procedure, which lasts as long as a dentition.

Does anesthesia facilitate getting an implant?

When they get an implant, the anesthesia is not necessary. Anesthesia is only recommended for patients with dental fear, which means either sedation or general anesthesia, more about the subject and treatment options for anxiety patients.

What are the requirements to get an implant?

The most important prerequisite is the sufficient amount of bone. It is necessary to have a sufficiently large and sufficiently big quantity of bone in the jaw. In my experience this is unfortunately not always the case, but there is the possibility of a bone replacement. You can find out more about the topic of bone replacement here.

What kind of health do I need to have to get an implant?

In general, you need to have good health. That means, if you are not suffering from a serious illness, you can get an implant.

Who can not get an implant?

The most common IRRIGAUTS are:

If you have any of these diseases, you CAN still get an implant.

Does age play a role in getting an implant?

Not at all. There are some criteria to consider:

From 14-16 it is already possible, but until then you have to wait, because of the ossification. The ossification can be measured with a special examination.
There is no upper age limit to get an implant.

Can older patients also receive an implant?

Of course, older patients can also receive an implant. Obtaining an implant can be just as successful in the elderly as in the younger patients. The amount of bone, however, decreases with age, but is not an insoluble problem.

How long does an implant last?

If you regularly get to the control examination after you have received your implant, an implant will last LIFELONG. The intervention is, however, to be successful, the establishment should be appropriate and the ossification is also important.

What does the ossification mean after getting the implant?

The inserted implant is grown around the bone in two-three months. The implant screw thus becomes equal to the bone. This procedure can be controlled by radiographs. This is also a reason why the control tests are important.

What should I do if I want to get an implant?

What X-rays do I need to get an implant?

First of all, you need a panoramic radiograph. This gives a complete picture of the condition of your teeth.
A CT scan is very important when you want to get an implant. This helps the dentist to examine your bones by means of a three-dimensional computer image.

What is the purpose of the recording sheet when you want to get an implant?

Through the recording sheet, the general state of health is measured. They are asked for your diseases, taken medication, allergies. These are important information before getting the implant.
