Dental implants were founded by Professor Branemark and served for humanity. Although he was a orthopedist, in 1955, he observed titanium material could be osseointegrated to the bone tissue without any cavity between them. In 1965 he started to the try this new mechanism on the patients. In the end he published the results of his researches in the scientific journals. As a result of them, the connection of titanium to the bone tissue was described as 'osseointegration' and this describtion was accepted in the world.
Fixed partial dentures can be tooth supported or implant supported which made of base metal alloy (Ni-Cr) or nobel metal (Au-Pt-Pd).
Zirconium crowns and bridges are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth. Zirconium crowns can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.
Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
Single Tooth Dental Implants
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The other common treatment for the loss of a single tooth, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.
Multiple Tooth Implants
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. What are the advantages of implant-supported bridges over fixed bridges or removable partial dentures?
Teeth straightening treatments or braces can address issues such as overcrowding of teeth, crooked teeth and gaps; fixing these issues not only creates a beautiful smile, but also improves the health of your teeth and gums, alongside a regime of regular flossing and cleaning.
