Implantation -is an artificial body, which implants into one`s organism. It can be made as a screw, cylinder or plate. Implants are very small – 3.5-4 mm by diameter and 8-16 mm long, that`s to say corresponding to the size of natural teeth root. The operation of inserting of one or several implants is called implantation. Titanium is a biological material. It is the best from all the metal biomaterials for making implants. That`s why titanium is used in medicine, for example when making bone plates, spokes etc. Titan is one of the stabile materials, known in medicine. It is perceived by human organism, which excludes tearing away.
One of the aims of stomatology has always been restoration of lost teeth with help of substitutes, close to naturals not only by function but also from aesthetic point of view. Appearance and functions such as chewing, speaking and smile are the final aim of implantation. Nature created perfect chewing system, which is impossible to compensate with artificial one. Inserting of the implant into the jaw bone or creating of the artificial root as a base for the prosthesis, gives as a result a construction, similar to natural tooth. Usually artificial base is inserted with surgical operation, made in dispensary with local anaesthesia. Be sure that these procedures are absolutely painless, and the time for inserting of one or two implants is 15-20 minutes.
