Silver Alloy Root Inlays
An intra-root prosthesis made of silver alloy can be installed in all cases when at least a small part of the stump protrudes above the gum. Pin-root tabs allow you to save the tooth with significant damage. An alternative is only removal followed by the insertion of the pin into the gum. But experts know that a complete implant always loses in functionality to a tooth with an intra-root insert.

Technology advantages
Tabs in the root of the tooth can almost completely restore the functions of the tooth. The design firmly connects the root with the jawbone. Prosthetics with intra-root silver alloy tabs have obvious advantages:

tooth preservation even in the presence of cysts and fistulas in the root area;
prevention of inflammatory processes in the root;
it is not required to install the implant in the gum and wait for engraftment;
surgery to restore the dentition is cheaper.
Prosthetics with the installation of an intra-root insert preserves the chewing functions of the tooth in full – this is the main advantage.

Steps for installing the root tab
Installing the stump at the root involves five steps:

The formation of the cavity for filling the material for the impression.
Making a mold in the laboratory of a metal stump (intra-root tab).
Installing the tab in the root and making a mold for the crown on its basis.
Crown making and installation on the intra-root tab.
There are few contraindications for the installation of a root implant from silver, most often individual intolerance. Contraindications are identified at the first stage – counseling. The root can be destroyed up to 1/2 of the volume from a healthy state for indication for installation.

After the cavity is formed, it is filled with quick-hardening material, which is then transferred to the laboratory in the form of an impression. A temporary tab is installed in the root cavity. The prosthesis is made of pure silver or an alloy of silver and palladium.

Advantages of the silver prosthesis:
has bactericidal properties;
not destroyed, has high mechanical strength.

Installing an intra-root silver tab:
The finished implant is installed the next time you visit the dentist. Then another cast is made, which is necessary for the manufacture of a full crown, which will fit snugly into the cult and look neat in the dentition.

The final stage of prosthetics is the installation of a dental crown on a silver stump.

A restored tooth is no different in appearance and functionality from a healthy one. It looks aesthetically pleasing, firmly held in the nest. An intra-root tab is used as the basis for installing a single crown or for mounting a dental bridge. It can withstand significant loads without losing properties over many years of service.

An implant placed in a half-destroyed root allows preserving the ligament of the root with the jaw tissue, which is most important for the working capacity of the tooth. An artificial root will never be as strong as its own, restored with a pin-root tab. You can learn more about this type of prosthetics by visiting our clinic.
