What are dental implants

Dental implants are artificial roots inserted into the bone, which serve as a support for fixed prostheses. In order to be functional, they must be perfectly integrated into the bone through a process called osseointegration (term coined in the 60s by Prof. Branemark). Once the osseointegration has taken place (in order to make them safer, it is recommended to wait for a period of 3-6 before applying the prosthesis), dental crowns or bridges can be applied on them.

Dental implants, being elements that integrate with our body, must be made of biocompatible materials. The most commonly used material for the fabrication of dental implants is titanium (or titanium alloy), a light and corrosion-resistant metal that establishes a direct connection with the bone without causing foreign body reactions.

Who can use dental implants?

Generally, almost any person can use dental implants after assessing their general health and the presence of bone. If there is not enough bone, it is not advisable to place dental implants directly, because this can be remedied by bone regeneration, a surgical technique that allows the bone to regenerate and then, at a later time, to be able to accommodate dental implants.

Failure of dental implants: rejection or failure

If some basic precautions are not taken into consideration, the failure of dental implants can occur. This can happen if international sterility protocols are not followed during the procedure. The operation must take place in a dedicated room and a sterile kit must be used to avoid contamination of bacteria. The professionalism and experience of the surgeon and the quality of the dental implants are also very important for the success of the intervention.

Very often, following the failure of dental implants, we hear about rejection. It is very important to point out that rejection does not exist in implantology. This term indicates an inability of the body to accept an external body, while in our case the failure is due to non-compliance with the measures we have talked about. In the light of all this, we can say that the most appropriate term to indicate the failure of dental implants is “failure” rather than rejection.
