Who is eligible for dental implants ?
Dental implants are the most up-to-date replacement for missing teeth.As this method is considered to be the most successful as it in no way affects the surrounding teeth and tissues. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth with titanium abutments, and for dental implants to be successful, certain conditions must be fulfilled, including:
• Patients should not have certain bone disorders such as advanced diabetes and osteoporosis.
• The presence of an adequate amount of jaw bone as this type of bone is considered a functional type and is often eroded when a tooth is lost.
• For the successful implementation process, the lost bone must first be replaced and then the implementation is complete.
• Check the distance between the bone to be implanted and the nasal cavities and nerves in the jaw.
And this is the task of the dentist because he is assessed by medical examinations and radiographs,and of course, the maintenance of oral and dental health.
What is dental implant procedure?
The dominant concept of dental implants is to replace one or several missing teeth.
But dental implants can be used as an auxiliary solution to improve the quality of the jawbone bones. Particularly in elderly persons whose bone quality does not allow the possibility of a complete dental implant process for the jaws.
3-4 implants are placed in a jaw, and a fixture is placed in the designated area to accommodate the permanent tooth.
On the other hand, the other part of the implant is located in the inner part of the fixture . This helps to stabilize the site.

•The third: The final composition of the dental implants, and this step includes a number of sessions to make the final composition of the mouth impressions and test it for the final installation.
Dental implants are painless or present with very mild, natural, pain which can be overcome by taking analgesics. The average age of implanted teeth, according to medical practitioners, is 25 years. It can last a lifetime, but we take into consideration the patient's need to care for implants when cleaning teeth.
