Dr. Padolsky has been studying implant dentistry since 1982 and has been an implant dentist since 1987. The theory behind dental implants has been around but it wasn't until the 1950's when Brånemark started studying bone regeneration that the field became more than theory. Dental implants provide a number of major advantages over many other dental restorations and it is because of these advantages that so many dentists believe so strongly in their use.
Implant dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses solely on the use of dental implants for restoring teeth. Dental implants act like the roots of teeth and are the platform for which restorations are then added. While the concept seems simple, it is anything but simple. The implant must be made from a material that bonds with human bone to ensure that the base is stable and will prevent bone loss to keep it stable over the years. Titanium a material that bonds with bone in an amazing manner.
Implant dentistry is about more than just replacing teeth. One of the key advantages to implants is that they prevent jaw bone loss. When teeth are lost the supporting bone disappears over time. This bone loss can have a major impact on your health because it weakens the bone significantly. Since implants bond with the bone, they can prevent bone loss. This is particularly useful for people who need full dentures, where all the teeth are lost and bone loss would be significant.
