Materials (e.g. plastic, collagen, metal) inserted into the body to replace missing tissue or organ parts or to deliver drugs to the body. In the context of hormonal contraception or hormone replacement therapy: small hormone-containing plastic rods that are inserted under the skin. Small amounts of hormone are released into the bloodstream continuously from the depot.
Implants are items placed under the skin by a piercing procedure. The skin over an implant heals relatively quickly, within two weeks, so that there is no break in the skin. The implanted material must be inert. Materials used include man-made materials such as implant grade titanium and stainless steel, and natural materials such as bone and pearl.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a false tooth that is permanently secured to the jaw. A small titanium rod will be fixed into the jawbone, and once the jawbone has adhered to the structure, a false tooth will be attached to it.
Implants have now become the preferred option when replacing lost teeth. They can be used to replace the loss of a single tooth or the loss of a complete set of teeth. Implants are made from metal (Titanium) cylinders, which are placed into prepared sites in the jawbone where they become solidly integrated with the bone. These cylinders (or rods) can then be used to support crowns, bridges and dentures, eliminating the need for conventional dental plates or dentures.
Focal points of detached personnel situated within customers? Premises to co-ordinate and advice on the customers? Logistics activity, often replacing in-house functions and resource.
Surgically placed, artificial tooth replacements.
Dental implants, simply put, are typically titanium posts that are imbedded into the jawbone and then plastic or porcelain teeth are placed over the portion of the implant that sticks out of the gums. They usually take several months to complete since the bone must fuse to the posts before any kind of pressure can be put on the implant itself.
Used to replace a missing tooth. A titanium post is placed in the bone and then the tooth is restored by attaching a finished crown to it. The entire procedure can take anywhere from one day to three months, depending on which approach is appropriate for the patient. As with all treatment, proper planning and coordination between your dentist and implant specialist is not only recommended but vital to achieving a successful result.
A device made of metal or other foreign material which is surgically placed into or on the upper or lower bone to provide support for a crown, bridge, partial or full denture.
Titanium screws singularly placed into the jawbone used as an anchor to replace missing teeth or retain a denture.
A metal rod that is screwed into the jaw where teeth are missing. An artificial tooth is then fitted over the implant to replace missing teeth.
Implants are artificial tooth replacements. Surgically placed into the site where teeth are missing, they are can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
artificial substitutes used as a replacement for defective body parts.
Implantology is the science of placing an artificial device in the maxilla (upper) and/or mandible (lower) jaw bone to support the replacement of missing aspects of the human dentition (missing teeth).
Man-made replacements for the natural tooth root of missing teeth. Dental implants are small metal posts that are surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw. After placement, the implants integrate with the bone of your jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth are then mounted to the implant and provide the biting and cosmetic portion of the teeth.
