What is a dental implant used for

The simple answer is: “Dental implants are titanium screws designed to replace the root of missing teeth.” If you have missing teeth, opting for an implant might be the ideal solution for you. These implants are “bio-compatible,” indicating that the titanium material utilized in their production seamlessly integrates with the body, establishing a sturdy and healthy foundation for the subsequent placement of a permanent crown. The sucess rates of implant treatment at our clinic in Tirana are 98% which indicates a very high sucess rate.

  • Aesthetic appeal: Dental implants are crafted to enhance both functionality and aesthetics. You’ll be able to chew food just as you would with natural teeth, and notably, the porcelain crown used to replace a tooth will seamlessly blend with your other teeth, enhancing your overall appearance.
  • Speech clarity: The absence of teeth can significantly impact speech articulation. Removable dentures may exacerbate this issue. Implants replicate natural teeth precisely, mitigating speech impediments.
  • Comfort: Unlike removable dentures, implants are permanently fixed and do not shift. This ensures you’ll never experience discomfort or a foreign sensation in your mouth.
  • Improved oral hygiene: Gaps between teeth can trap food particles, leading to tooth decay and halitosis. By restoring lost teeth function with implants, these spaces are eliminated, reducing the accumulation of debris and lowering the risk of decay.
Whats better dental implant or dental bridge?

For many years, the primary options for replacing lost teeth in every Dental Implant Clinic in Tirana have been porcelain bridges or removable prostheses.

Implants offer a distinct advantage as they do not rely on support from healthy adjacent teeth. Conversely, replacing a tooth with a bridge necessitates the “sacrificing” or removal of the enamel of two healthy teeth.

In terms of oral hygiene, a crucial aspect in the longevity of teeth, bridges fall short compared to implants. Bridges are connected units that hinder the entry of saliva or dental floss for cleaning, resulting in a hygiene level that is at least 100% better with implants. Accumulation of impurities over time can lead to bridge failure and bad breath.

When faced with the question of “which is better, an implant or a bridge,” there is a clear answer: the implant is a bettet choice!

Are dental implants a good choice?

The success of dental implants in Albania depend on several factors, including their precise placement within the jawbone, genetic predisposition, overall oral health, and diligent maintenance. With these elements in place, the success rate of implants typically reaches an impressive 98%.

Consistent oral hygiene practices, such as daily brushing and flossing, combined with regular visits to the dentist for professional cleanings, play an important role in ensuring the longevity of implants. 

Furthermore, the stability and functionality provided by dental implants surpass that of traditional tooth replacement options like bridges or dentures. Unlike bridges, which rely on adjacent healthy teeth for support and may require alteration of healthy tooth structure, implants stand independently, preserving the integrity of neighboring teeth.

Additionally, implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure and aesthetics in the long term. This feature distinguishes implants from removable prostheses, which do not offer the same level of bone stimulation and may lead to deterioration of the jawbone over time.

Am i a good candidate for dental implants?

Before placing the implant, several important factors must be carefully considered:

Firstly, the condition of the jawbone is crucial. Sufficient bone volume, width, and height are necessary to securely hold the implant screw. In cases where these conditions are lacking, synthetic bone can be added to enhance density and dimensions at the implant site. For more information on this additional procedure, please refer to the Bone Graft Procedure.

Secondly, oral hygiene and gum disease should be addressed prior to implant placement. Treatment for gum disease can be provided at our clinic. The success of implants is closely linked to oral hygiene practices. Our Toronto Dental staff is trained to provide comprehensive guidance and instructions on utilizing oral hygiene tools effectively at home.

Furthermore, certain medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or prior radiation therapy need to be evaluated before proceeding with the intervention. Your medical and dental history is crucial and must be thoroughly completed to ensure the highest possible success rate for any dental treatment performed by our dentists.

How long does it take to place a dental implant?

Placing an implant or implanted tooth requires healthy bone. In cases where it is infected or is not in sufficient quantity and artificial bone must be used to regulate this problem, then an extra time of 3-6 months is needed before the implant is placed.

The implant itself needs at least 3-5 months of time to integrate with the bone and become a body before placing the porcelain c

The procedure of dental implant treatment on its own requirements a relatively short time. Depending on the situation of your case, it could take from 15 to 60 minutes. Due to improvements in technology, now we can see your jaw bone in 3d imaging and provide a detailed plan prior to intervention. This drastically improves the time and precision of the treatment.

Sometimes the missing tooth site requires bone grafting or bone regeneration due to previews infections, in these instances the implant placement is postponed until the site is completely healed.

This period typically ranges from a few weeks to several months, depending on individual healing rates and the complexity of the case. Our team closely monitors your progress during this healing phase to ensure the success of the implant treatment.
