What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are modern dentistry’s highly successful, long-lasting, and natural-looking substitute for missing teeth or for supporting dentures. Dental implants actually fuse directly to your jaw bone becoming one with your living bone structure. In doing so, implants help to maintain your jawbone, which would otherwise begin to disintegrate once your tooth is removed. Dental Implants replace the root portion of your lost tooth.
They are placed with administering local anesthesia. About 3 months after, bone cells are created around the implant, integrating it into the jaw bone (osteointegration).
Once incorporated into the jaw, the prosthetic work (crown, bridge or denture) is added and bonded.
In our dental office we collaborate with the best companies worldwide, providing you with the best quality dental implants!
Dental Implants placing procedures
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical phases.
During the first one the implant is implanted into the bone.
For the first 3-4 months, after surgery, the dental implants are covered by the gums and are gradually integrated into the jaw bone (process of osteoinstruction).
Following the integration, the second surgical phase follows, called the “revealing” of the implants.
Under local anesthesia, the implants are revealed from the gums and a small screw is screwed onto them, which protrudes from the gum surface about 1 – 2 mm.
Two to three weeks later, the healing screw gives its place, temporarily, to the imprint axis, and the imprint with the positions of the implants is then taken to the lab so that the final restoration is constructed.
The total procedure from the first visit up until to the final placement of the work lasts about 4-5 months. Most patients do not experience any change in their daily routine during the above period.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants are today the most advanced technology to replace a natural tooth. They have the image, feel and function of natural teeth. The person who has lost natural teeth, replacing them with dental implants, regains the ability to eat naturally and smiles with confidence, knowing that his teeth have a natural appearance and that the structure of his face is not altered.
Dental implants change the way people live. With this, people find the comfort and conviction of eating, talking, laughing and enjoying life.
