Dental implants are possibly the best solution for replacing lost teeth. In the absence of one’s own teeth, inserting new dental roots (implants) in the maxilla is the most natural, reliable, comfortable and aesthetic way to once again benefit from a fixed dentition, which in many cases seem virtually real.
Implantology is considered to be a major breakthrough in modern dentistry. Great efforts have been made in scientific research and industrial development to achieve excellent results in the reliability of implant osseointegration (almost 99%), great aesthetic results through different mucogingival and regenerative techniques, a very good postoperative period with less invasive techniques and shorter terms (until achieving immediate loading in many cases).
One of the biggest challenges we face today is getting implants to remain in the mouth for long periods of time. The most common problems implants can have once integrated are bone disintegration, implant fracture and peri-implantitis.
Once implant-prosthetic treatment is complete, patients should be offered a maintenance and monitoring programme to lengthen treatment duration. This maintenance programme has two main parts, regular dental appointments and proper daily oral hygiene at home.
Patients need to understand that microorganisms are constantly entering their mouths, and that they need to be removed daily, because if they are allowed to accumulate, they will cause damage, inflaming gums and destroying the bone that supports implants. If patients are correctly instructed and use the right, specific tools, they can carry out proper daily oral hygiene and be able to remove most oral biofilm build-up.
The VITIS implant range features specialised toothbrushes designed to disrupt dental plaque on implants with the utmost precision in order to access the peri-implant sulcus.
Why Use VITIS Implant?
VITIS Implant consists of the most complete range of brushes specifically designed for hygiene, care and protection of dental implants.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into a patient’s jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
