No. The age does not matter, the most important is the patient’s health condition. Diabetes, smoking, abuse of alcohol and poor oral hygiene negatively affect the healing process. Prior to the implant placement, the doctor reviews medical history of the patient, checks health condition and addresses all doubts. If any health issues are discovered, the doctor recommends additional tests to be made (e.g. CT scans, blood tests) and decides on further course of treatment based on their results.
An implant is made of titanium, a biocompatible metal, well-tolerated by the human organism. Titanium is an alloy which does not cause allergies and binds with the maxillary or mandibular bones within a few months after placement.
In the ODENT Dental Centre in Warsaw we offer::
- porcelain crowns on metal base,
- all-porcelain crowns on zirconia base.
A dental implant is a titanium screw placed by the doctor in the bone of the maxilla or mandible. The implant serves as the root of the tooth. A porcelain crown is fitted to a dental implant by means of an abutment. A dental implant with a porcelain crown mirror the structure of a natural tooth, i.e. the root and crown.
