DENTAL IMPLANTATION SAVES EDENTULOUS
It is sad, but there are a lot of toothless people in Lithuania. Some do not have money, others are afraid to go to the dentist, and others do not know why they are waiting, though perfectly aware that the rescue of a drowning person – is his own business. However, the nation needs to be rescued. How? We will find the answer together with the doctors of “Ateities dental clinic”. If you have one missing tooth, in order to insert an artificial, it is necessary to grind some adjacent healthy teeth and make the so called bridge. Sorry for healthy teeth? Then you can choose the implant. Dental implantation method in Lithuania is applied for more than 20 years and each year this way prosthodontics improves.
What is an implant? It is a titanium screw that is placed into the bone. Doctors explain that titanium root, on which later the crown of the tooth is mounted, is inserted into the bone. Titanium – is the most appropriate metal for implants, because it has the best compatibility with the organism and is very durable.
For example, you no longer have molars. In the absence of the rearmost abutment tooth it is impossible to produce a bridge. Then it is offered to thread several implants into the jaw and thus make the firm supports to restore back teeth.
Older people and sometimes forty-year-olds have already lost a greater part or all of their teeth. Typically, they are advised to have artificial dentures. However, sometimes it is unstable or slops down and makes it difficult to chew. According to the talkers, only the implants, which are strongly fixed to the dentures, can facilitate the edentulous fate.
Dentists warn that of great concern should be those who have lost a number of teeth. After a long delay (let’s say 5 years) it may not be possible to insert the implant, since bone without getting a load begins to melt, narrow, and descend. According to the doctor Jurgita Raulynaitiene, then it requires a bone augmentation or transplantation surgery. So the conclusion is clear – it is better to take care of the teeth in time, because later it will cause significantly more problems and additional expense.
The specialists of “Ateities dental clinic” ensure that any implantation procedure is fully anesthetized, and a person feels minimal discomfort. If a patient feels an extreme fear, an anesthetist makes an injection of special medication into the vein.
According to the dentist Jurgita Raulynaitiene, the reliability and durability of the implants is very high. The process of implant naturalization and prosthodontics before used to take about half a year, while now it has substantially reduced – from 1 day to 6 months. After, the special healing heads are screwed on the implant and within three weeks the gums around the implant heal nicely. The last thing left is to visit prosthodontist.
Unbelievable, but the doctors of “Ateities dental clinic” say that a man who came, let’s say, without the lower teeth, after a few days in some cases can go home already having them. Upper teeth implantation takes a little longer.
So edentulous people can get their smiles back. Just be patient and … have money. Dental implantation in Lithuania is much cheaper than in Western countries, so not only the residents of Lithuania, but also foreign visitors use the services of our dentists and oral surgeons.
