Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Measuring 6 to 18 mm in length, it serves as a replacement root for a tooth that has been extracted, or as an anchor for a dental prosthesis. The procedure is safe and relatively painless.

Implant-supported permanent prostheses

To replace one or several teeth, prosthetic crowns or bridges are durable and natural-looking options. The implants inserted into the jawbone help maintain bone mass, while the restoration itself helps maintain the integrity of adjacent teeth.

Implant-supported removable full dentures

A removable prosthesis offers the following benefits when all teeth need to be replaced:

  • Stable and comfortable
  • Improves chewing and speaking
  • Maintains bone mass
  • Improves self-esteem

Options include removable prostheses with spherical attachments and bar-retained removable prostheses.
