the elaboration of the dental materials, the last statistics

Which are the advantages of Dental Implants?
In many cases the treatments with dental implants are the best
solution. If there is to replace a dental piece with totally
healthy for the neighboring dental pieces, the dental implants
avoids the wearing down of these for the positioning of a bridge
by a conventional method. When several dental pieces are due to
be replaced and it is not counted on support pieces, the
conventional solution is a removable prosthesis that has the
disadvantage of adaptation and reabsorption of the bone and gum
where prótesís leans. The greater beneficiaries are those people
total toothless, since the implants solve the problems of
instability of the conventional prosthesis because of the
reabsorption of the bone.
How much time is it necessary for the positioning of
The positioning of implants is made in two stages: first
there is the surgical one wich consists on the installation of
implants within the osseous tissue.
Once this surgery is made, it´s necessary to wait from 4 to 6 months
so that the osseous integration is obtained, is to say the
biological union between implants and the bone. The second
stage is the prosthesis one, when the implants that has been submerged within osseous tissue
appears to the light by the installation of the new prosthesis on it.
