What is an implant

A dental implant is a surgical component, which is designed to be firmly anchored in the jaw and to hold the tooth (crown, bridge) in place. The implant is a small part of titanium, titanium alloy or ceramics – materials which are generally well-tolerated by the human body. Titanium has been shown to bond well with the human bone. It is surgically inserted under local anaesthesia. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing an individual crown.

When the implant is needed?

Implant can help to replace a single missing tooth. If you have lost a tooth you might benefit from dental implant. 

After the extraction of the tooth or in an already existing gap we place the implant. The implant secured and a healing cup will be placed on top of the implant. After a few months we place the ceramic crown.

If I have lost more than one teeth, what are my options?

Sometimes if bigger gaps (more teeth extracted), then an implant-supported bridge can cover the gap. Even if all the teeth are lost in an arch we can make an implant supported denture.

According to the treatment plan, we place two or more implants for a bridge or 4 implants for a denture.
