All About the Success Rate of Dental Implants


Visitors: 216

A dental implant is a process of replacing a missing tooth with an artificial one, this process can dramatically enhance the looks of a person who has lost a tooth for a series of teeth due to an accident, a fight or because of other dental conditions. When a person loses a tooth the consequences are many but for the most part they are social in nature.

What a tooth is missing the functionality of the oral cavity changes in the person may start chewing the food in one side of the mouth which may cause severe wearing of the teeth on that side, if this happens the bite force combined with several other factors will cause malocclusion which is nothing more than a deformity which causes the bite not to function properly.

Amongst the most successful procedures in dentistry we have dental implants, according to recent studies dental implants which or perform on the upper jaw don't have a 90% success rate, this is due to the fact that the upper jaw especially in the back tends to be thinner when compared to the lower jaw. If an implant is put in place in the upper jaw in a position which is not optimal then the implant will fail, in other words osseointegration will not take place.

When it comes to the lower jaw the success rate increases to 95%, this is due to the fact that the lower jaw is thicker than the upper jaw thus it provides more room for the dentist to work with. The implant procedure involves making an orifice in the jawbone which will serve to anchor a special screw which in turn will hold the crown which takes place off the natural tooth, a new technique used by dentist's in order to decrease the osseointegration time records of the implant to be placed in on the area where a tooth has been recently removed, this method successfully increases in the healing process because osseointegration takes place much faster than it would in an area which has been sitting there and had a long time to heal.

After the implant has been put in place and has healed without any complication the real success can be experienced after interaction with friends, family and society. An implant can not only enhance the functionality of the bite of a person who has lost a tooth but it can also be aesthetically pleasing. is maintained by professionals Wirral dentists .
