The dental implant is a piece that is placed in the bone of the jaws in order to artificially replace the root of a tooth. Losing a tooth can be due to multiple factors, including caries, periodontal disease, endodontic complications, trauma, and genetic predisposition to suffer agenesis (absence of teeth).
For an implant to adhere well to the bone, the implant must be made of special materials that do not cause rejection of our own body; therefore, if there are no complications and performs proper oral hygiene, they will last for a lifetime. After a time of placement Osseo integration occurs and the screw is naturally integrated into the bone, making removal impossible.
Still, there are some external factors that lead to implant the possibility of losing the piece. These cases are, for example, diseases or specific and not too common that weakens bone strength you need to stay on it the piece infections.
Placing an implant is a procedure that usually does not require admission to a clinic, but can be performed in the same dental office.
The mucous membrane is formed around the implants (Per implant tissues) shares similarities with the gum around the teeth, have a function of protection against attacks from the external environment, for example, microorganisms. Still, the peri-implant mucosa is more sensitive to the accumulation of biofilm oral (dental plaque) and can cause an inflammatory response. Therefore the per-implant tissues are less tolerant of aggression biofilm compared to oral periodontal tissues.
The presence of microorganisms on the surface of dental implants can lead to the development of per-implant disease, and microsites as per implant.
Per implant microsites is an inflammatory lesion occurs in the mucosa surrounding an implant. Common characteristics are edema, redness and hyperplasia of the mucosa and the bleeding without bone loss around the implant. The continued presence of biofilm on pathogenic oral implants induces this inflammatory reaction, which if not properly treated, can progress to pair. This is also an inflammatory lesion of the mucosa surrounding an implant to further bone loss associated support. Implants are induced lesions are encapsulated and extend slightly into the marginal bone tissue. If you move, they can cause the loss of the implant. The occurrence of inflammations, bleeding, implant mobility, drainage, signs are associated with pair.
