How long teeth implants can serve?

How long teeth implants can serve?


This question is no less care and for those who is too early to think about implantation, in spite of it is just vital to know what are the implants and how they can replace live teeth, impact whether implantation in principle? Many people however are concerned the question whether there is a warranty on the implant, and if it so, how long? Please pay attention that the warranty period and service life — are two different concepts, which should not be confused.

The warranty period for the time being determined by the Law «On Protection of Consumer Rights», which allows to set the term of 6 months from the end of service, or to define the term by agreement between the sides.

A dental implant is installed in the jaw to create an additional support for the prosthesis.

It is believed that if, after prosthetic implant their term of service was 5 — 10 years — this is very good. 10 years and more — this is an excellent result. However, these terms are relative, as some dentures on implants are more than 15 — 18 years, in other cases limited period is 3-5 years.

Since the period of service and the implant prosthesis is influenced by many factors, and in any case it is given the estimated period of use of the prosthesis on the implant, then discussing with the patient a certain life of implant and prosthesis is impossible. Such forecasts — relative, because in medicine there are no objective tests that can predict the service life of the prosthesis, the implant of a certain patient.

For the stable service of implants right prosthesis plays a very important role. The term of implants also affects the quality of manufacture, install crown, which should provide the possibility of proper hygiene. In spite of this, even with a perfect crown mandatory implant is a good status periodically, at least twice a year, inspection, during which the doctor hygienist removes potential sources of infection that can not be removed with a toothbrush.

Great importance for the prevention of rejection of the implant has a sterility level of sterility in abdominal surgery.

World statistics says that the percentage of rejection of implants in complex cases can be up to 20%. It depends on the complexity of the operation and use of implants.

With rejection of the implant it is removed, and then, depending on the anatomical conditions of the jaw, on the presence of comorbidities of the patient, it is proposed to repeat the implantation and do non-detachable or removable dentures.

Prosthetics on implants, this technology combined with the use of special depreciation inserts that give the ability to make the crown micro movements, like of the living teeth, it much increases the term of implants. When installation of laminar implants whose service is designed for 5 — 6 years, it takes about three weeks, when installing a cylindrical implant osteointegrated need 3 — 8 months — depending on the general condition of the oral cavity and the degree of atrophy of the bone tissue.

However, the available clinical observations suggest that with proper hygiene such implants can last for at least 25 years.
Thus, one can say with certainty that the experiment continues, as the final term of implants has not been determined.
