Dental implants are medical devices made of metal that are implanted in the jaw. They provide support for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges or dentures.

When a tooth or several teeth are lost due to injury or illness, a person may experience health complications or aesthetic discomfort. Replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant can significantly improve the patient's quality of life, health and aesthetics.
Dental implant systems consist of a dental implant body and a dental implant abutment and may also include an abutment fixation screw. The body of the dental implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of the tooth root. A dental implant abutment is usually attached to the implant body via the abutment's locking screw and extends through the gums into the mouth to support the attached artificial teeth. Abutments represent the connection between the implant (root) and the prosthesis (tooth). They are usually made of titanium, but other materials such as gold, zirconium, stainless steel and others are also used. Your dentist will be able to advise you on the material, type of procedure and whether or not an abutment is required.
Before choosing dental implants, talk to your dentist about the potential benefits and risks and whether you are a good fit for the procedure.
Your overall health is an important factor in determining whether you are a good fit for dental implants, how long it will take to heal, and how long the implant can remain in place.
It is important to know that smoking can affect the healing process and reduce the long-term success of the implant.
The healing process of the implant body can take several months or more, during which time you usually have a temporary support in place of the tooth.
Dental implants can significantly improve the quality of life and health of a person who needs them. However, sometimes complications can occur. Complications can occur after a dental implant is placed or much later. Some complications lead to implant failure, usually defined as loosening or loss of the implant. Failure of the implant may result in the need for another surgical procedure to fix or replace the implant system.
Placing an implant immediately after tooth extraction (immediately) is the best option. With this type of implantation, most of the bone and gum around the extracted tooth is preserved. The treatment takes place with a single surgical procedure and a single application of anesthesia. Patient trauma is minimal and treatment completion times are shortened. The success rate is the same as with delayed implantation.
Advantages of dental implant systems:
Restores the ability to chew
Restores the cosmetic and aesthetic appearance
It helps prevent the jawbone from shrinking due to bone loss
Preserves the health of the surrounding bone and gums
Helps maintain stable adjacent (nearby) teeth
Improves the quality of life
Dental implant systems are usually made of materials that follow the international consensus standards of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or ASTM International. These standards detail what makes a material safe. Most dental implant systems are made of titanium or zirconium oxide. Other materials such as gold alloys, cobalt-based alloys, titanium alloys or ceramic materials are sometimes used. The safety profiles of these materials are well known.
Dental implant systems are evaluated according to international consensus standards. Biocompatibility testing to show that bodily contact with the device does not cause complications such as irritation or an allergic reaction is part of the evaluation that helps ensure that the materials in the dental implant system are safe and do not cause adverse effects when implant.
