An implant is a prosthetic device implanted into the bone beneath the gum tissue and serves as a base for a crown, bridge or denture, offering stability because it fuses to your bone. Implant retained restorations make talking, smiling and eating feel natural again.
The most widely used implants today are endosseous root-form implants made of titanium. This material is totally compatible with the human body and bone fuses to the implant surface, making it permanently attached to your jawbone.
As technology progresses, more and more people are candidates for dental implants. An ideal candidate for a dental implant is someone who is in good general and oral health and must have enough bone in the jaw to support the implant. However, for patients who do not have enough bone, there are solutions to increase the bone volume.
Dental implants are artificial titanium roots, which can help resolve aesthetic, masticatory and phonetic problems caused by the loss of natural teeth, and this in the most conservative possible manner.
Titanium is not only a very biocompatible material, but also presents a capacity for living bone to integrate itself closely to the implant’s surface.
Dental implants allow you to chew with total comfort, smile and talk with the same confidence as with your own teeth.
