Dental implants, also called artificial dental implants, consist of two parts: the lower part of the implant and the upper part of the crown, and are not really planted with natural teeth.


A dental implant is an implant made of artificial material that is surgically implanted into the alveolar bone of the missing tooth area through minor surgery to restore the missing tooth based on an artificial root.


Advantages of Dental Implants

Compared with the traditional dental restoration methods, dental implants have very prominent advantages, so more and more people choose dental implants for restoration:


1, high chewing efficiency.

Compared with the previous denture restoration methods, dental implants can restore the chewing function of the teeth very well, so that you can still eat as fragrant as the original;


2, strong stability.

Different from the movable denture, dental implants will be firmly combined with the alveolar bone, strong retention, generally will not appear loose off the situation;


3, aesthetically pleasing.

Dental implants can be customized according to each person's different face shape, tooth colour, etc., to achieve a beautiful and harmonious appearance.


Disadvantages of dental implants

Nothing is perfect, including restorative dentistry. Although many people have a strong desire to use dental implants for restorations, the following 3 disadvantages are a real deterrent:


1. Slightly higher price.

Compared with dentures and porcelain teeth, the price of dental implants is higher, which is also an important reason why many people give up dental implant restoration.


2、Special people can not do dental implants.

Healthy adults have completed the development of bones and teeth, and can accept dental implant restoration normally, but patients suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other basic diseases need to accept dental implant restoration only when their conditions are stable, and patients with bleeding disorders are not recommended to accept dental implant restoration.

Dental implants can be cleaned


Dental scaling is a routine means of dental maintenance, if you have dental implants, can you still do scaling?

Of course, scaling can prevent the occurrence of many oral diseases, preferably once or twice a year. Of course, it is important to explain to your dentist which teeth are implanted before scaling, so that the dentist can adjust the scaling method and tools in a timely manner.


Dental cleaning methods are divided into ultrasonic cleaning and manual cleaning.

In case of ultrasonic scaling, you need to choose a specific scaling head to avoid the conventional metal scaling head from causing damage to the implant and the implant surface, which will affect the lifespan of the implant.


In the case of manual scalers, it is necessary to replace the carbon fibre material for manual scaling. Here is not a detailed description, this is the doctor needs to consider the scope of what we need to do is to go to a regular dental clinic or hospital to receive scaling services, scaling advance notice of dental implants.
