A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone.
One or more missing teeth can be replaced by attaching a crown, a fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures on top of the implants. The implant material, which is typically pure titanium, is extremely biocompatible and the bone treats the implant just as if it was made out of bone.
Procedures for Implant Placement
In most cases, implants can be placed using local aenesthesia in our clinic. Postoperative care instructions are given directly to the patient.
