Modern implantology has made implant placement safer and more effective than ever before.

The implants are artificial roots in the shape of the natural root and support the prosthetic restoration that replaces the missing tooth.

They are placed in the jaw bone with microsurgery and a variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic.

Modern implants are made of titanium that is biocompatible.

Thanks to its properties, the risks for inflammation and rejection of the implant by the body are minimized.

However, some requirements are needed in order to use implants. These are:

  • enough bone mass in the jaw to support the implant
  • healthy periodontal tissue
  • negative for specific diseases and free of certain medications intake

This is why you will first undergo a clinical and radiographic examination to assess the condition of the bone and other parameters.

With modern techniques and materials, implants have a success rate of over 95%. It is the most complete and permanent solution to substitute one or more missing teeth. They behave like natural teeth, restore normal mouth function and offer an excellent aesthetic effect.

An implant can last up to more than 30 years, but to ensure longevity, we must respect oral hygiene rules and to undergo regular checkups by our dentist.
