Dental Implants

What is Implantology about?

Implantology is a branch of dentistry that focuses on replacing missing teeth with dental implants. While preserving your natural teeth is always the best option, when they are no longer viable, dental implants offer an excellent solution. 

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium or ceramic. Our skilled dental team surgically places these implants into the jawbone, creating a secure foundation for replacement teeth.

Implantology is all about restoring the function, appearance, and overall health of your smile, providing a long-lasting and dependable solution for missing teeth. Our experienced professionals meticulously plan, place, and restore dental implants to ensure they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

With our implantology services, you can experience the joy of a permanent and stable solution that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence once again.

Why you may need it?

Implantology treatments are recommended for individuals who have missing teeth and want to restore their smile and oral function. If you have lost one or more teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, or other reasons, visiting a dentist for dental implants can be a great solution. 

By preserving jawbone health and closely resembling natural teeth, dental implants enhance both the appearance and functionality of your smile. If you are looking for a long-lasting and stable solution for your missing teeth, consulting with a qualified dentist who specializes in implantology is recommended. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved Appearance

Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking smile. They are designed to blend harmoniously with your remaining teeth, enhancing your facial aesthetics and boosting your self-confidence.

Long-Term Solution

Dental implants are a durable and long-lasting tooth replacement option. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, creating a strong foundation for the prosthetic tooth. With proper care and regular dental visits, dental implants can last for many years, providing a reliable and permanent solution.

Improved Oral Health

Dental implants do not require altering adjacent healthy teeth, unlike traditional dental bridges. This preserves the integrity of your natural teeth, reducing the risk of future dental issues. Additionally, dental implants are easier to clean and maintain compared to other tooth replacement options.

Enhanced Functionality

Unlike removable dentures, dental implants function like natural teeth. They provide stable support for biting and chewing, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of foods without restrictions. With dental implants, you can speak clearly and confidently without worrying about slippage or discomfort.

Preserves Jawbone Health

When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate over time. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and preventing bone loss. This helps maintain the shape and structure of your face while ensuring optimal oral health.

Boosts Confidence and Quality of Life

Dental implants can have a profound impact on your self-esteem and overall quality of life. By restoring your smile, they allow you to speak, eat, and socialize with confidence, improving your emotional well-being and overall happiness.

Stages of Dental Implant rehabilitation

Implant Placement

During this procedure, the implants, which are biocompatible titanium or ceramic posts, are precisely positioned into the jawbone. The dentist carefully creates an incision in the gum tissue to expose the underlying bone and then places the implants securely. This is done under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort. After implant placement, the gums are sutured, and the healing process begins.

Waiting Period

Following implant placement, a waiting period phase called osseointegration takes place. This stage involves allowing time for the implants to fuse with the surrounding jawbone. The bone tissue gradually grows around the implants, providing stability and a strong foundation. The waiting period typically lasts 12 weeks, during which you may wear a temporary dental restoration to maintain aesthetics and function.

Crown Placement

Once the waiting period is complete and the implants have fully integrated with the jawbone, the final stage involves placing the dental crown. The crown is the visible portion of the implant and resembles a natural tooth. This step begins with uncovering the implants by making a small incision in the gum tissue. An abutment, which serves as a connector between the implant and the crown, is attached to the implant. Then, the custom-made crown is securely placed onto the abutment, completing the restoration process. The crown is designed to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.
