Implants & Prosthetics
at the eSmile Clinic
Sometimes a small piece of titanium is all it takes to put a smile back on your face!
Those missing one or more teeth might lack confidence, although every missing tooth has its own story: perhaps an accident, dental caries or gingivitis. Whatever the reason, our customers wish to be able to chew food properly, retain their healthy teeth and feel attractive again.
Particularly when it comes to front teeth, it is extremely important that the dentist is experienced in fixing aesthetically demanding areas. At our practice, dentist Hannu Vesanen is in charge of the care plan and the aesthetic finishing of the implants. The implants are attached by oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
Dental implants are artificial roots that are made out of titanium and fixed to the jaw bone to replace the root of the tooth. They can be used to fix an individual tooth or several teeth, i.e. bridges. They can also be used as attachments for removable dentures.
A dental implant can be attached when there is enough bone in the jaw and when anatomic structures, such as sinuses and nerve canals, are not too close to the attachment site. These days, bone transplantations and artificial bone have made even the most demanding treatments possible. The implant treatment is always preceded by an examination and an X-ray. Implants can be attached on people whose immunity has not been compromised by a severe generalised disease.
