Tooth implantation is routinely performed in dental clinics and consists of the following stages:
Firstly, the appropriate site for implantation is prepared by placing titanium alloy screws in the jawbone in the location of the missing tooth.
Secondly, the fusion of the jawbone and the screw, known as osseointegration, takes place. This process takes at least 3 months.
Thirdly, the final restoration of the implant involves several sessions to create the final structure from mouth impressions and to test it for final fixation.
Tooth implantation can be carried out without pain or with very mild and normal pain, which can be overcome with regular painkillers.
The implant can last a lifetime, but it depends on the patient's commitment to their dental health and their ability to maintain good oral hygiene.
