Implants - functional and aesthetic dentures
Dental implants are the optimal functional and aesthetic therapy to replace lost teeth. A single tooth can be replaced on the implant or, in the case of an underbite, the entire prosthesis can be attached.
dental implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots, which patients like to compare to a "needle" used by artisans simply because of their appearance. In toothless areas of the jaw, implants can be anchored directly in the jawbone. Such implants are called immovable implants, they are used almost exclusively today.
An implant usually consists of three parts: the implant body anchored in the bone and the tooth neck attached to it and the tooth crown.

Nowadays there are many different ones implant systems. All recognized implant systems have the cylinder, the screw or the root in common. The difference lies in the design, the surface of the implant and the type of connection between the implant body and the prosthesis attached to it. The traditional wing implants of the past are not as important today. In the 1970s, these implants were placed where bone was still present. These implants are not very suitable in the front tooth area and for replacing a single tooth. Implants are used where they are necessary from a prosthetic point of view in order to achieve a tooth replacement that is as natural as possible, especially in the area of the front teeth. Modern implant systems have greatly expanded the therapeutic options and, in principle, allow individual teeth to be replaced if they are lost.
