Dental implants

Extremely functional and natural-looking dental implants

Are you considering dental implants? Do you have questions you would like answered before scheduling an appointment with a denturologist? You’re in the right place! Here are a few answers to the most frequently asked questions from patients like you, who have opted for dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal "roots", usually made of highly resistant titanium, which are surgically installed in the jawbone under the gum. They act as the root of a natural tooth and can support a dental prosthesis or tooth attached thereto. Dental implants are the most effective treatment for replacing missing teeth.

What role do dental implants play?

Dental implants fit into the jaw bone where they will provide stable support to teeth with prostheses. The dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is integrated biomechanically into the jawbone. The screw acts as an artificial root and supports the restoration chosen. With a dental implant, it is possible to make bridges between several dental implants as if they were natural teeth. Bridges, crowns on dental implants and full dentures are extremely functional and comfortable, while giving the teeth a natural look.

Our clinic can install the following tooth restorations on your dental implants:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Complete prosthesis

Implant crowns are used to replace a single missing tooth, while a bridge can replace several missing teeth in the same area. For more information on crowns and bridges, click here.

If you wear a complete dental prosthesis (denture) that feels unstable, dental implants can fix the prosthesis directly to the bone of your jaw. This is called a complete fixed implant prosthesis. In this way, you will greatly increase your chewing strength, and your prosthesis will remain well anchored in place during oral movements.
