Implants are used to permanently replace one or several missing teeth. A small titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone, serving as a root. Because titanium is biocompatible material, the risks of post-surgical complications are minimal. Once the implant has fused with the bone, the replacement tooth can be secured to the implant.
Is implantology for everyone?
The two main criteria for this type of procedure are your overall health and the condition of your jawbone. If your bone mass has atrophied over time, a graft may be needed before an implant can be installed. Your dentist will let you know if this is the case.
Advantages of implantology:
- Maintain bone mass in your jaw
- Increased comfort
- Improved appearance and function on a permanent basis
