Dental implants ‘have the ability to function as normal teeth’

Tue

Dental implants could be an option for those with missing teeth.  Dental implants are good because they function in the same way as the teeth that patients had before.

This is according to periodontics and implantology specialist Dr Robert Pearson, who told the Savannah Morning News that technology has now advanced to such an extent that dentists are able to put the devices in place, graft in bone to anchor them and even work around the delicate sinus area.

"In the past, this procedure was elaborate and invasive. The sinus lift now may be performed with minimal manipulation of surrounding tissue resulting in simple quick healing," he explained.

Dental implants are a two-step process that involves screwing a titanium rod into the jaw bone and then adding a custom-made crown.

It was speculated earlier this week that Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi might have had dental implants to fix his jaw and teeth, which were damaged during an attack on him in 2009.
