Implantology is a progressive dental field that deals with dental implantation, ensuring the restoration of the functionality of the dentition and aesthetic beauty. Currently, implants are the most modern and effective method of restoring lost teeth. Implants are artificial tooth roots, usually made from biocompatible and hypoallergenic materials such as titanium. By their design, they completely replicate the shape of a real tooth root and are able to fully perform its function․Implants are inserted into the patient's jaw bone and serve as a support for dental crowns, bridges or dentures, replacing lost teeth.
Dental implantation may be recommended in the following cases
1. Loss of one or more teeth: Implants can be used to replace individual teeth without requiring support from adjacent teeth.
2. Complete loss of teeth (edentulism): Implants can be used to create a stable base for a complete denture, providing the patient with comfort and functionality when eating and speaking.
3. Improved denture retention: Implants can help improve the retention of removable prostheses, making them more stable and comfortable.
The lifespan of implants can vary significantly depending on many factors, including the quality of the surgical procedure, care of the implants, and the overall health of the patient. With the right approach, implants can last for decades. On average, implants can last for decades if properly cared for and with regular check-ups with your dentist.
Indications for dental implantation include:
- Loss of one or more teeth.
- The need to strengthen the bone structure of the jaw.
- The desire to restore the aesthetic beauty of the oral cavity.

-Insufficient bone density.
-serious systemic and inflammatory diseases.
- Severe bleeding disorders and other factors that may affect the successful course of the operation.
Patients should consult with an implantologist or dentist to assess their individual needs and contraindications. The results of objective research will accurately determine, whether this procedure is suitable for a particular person or not․
