Dental implants can be used to replace one or more teeth or even a completely edentulous jaw. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is implanted in the jawbone, usually made of titanium. It adapts to and bonds with the surrounding jawbone within a few months. The implant can then be used to support a crown, bridge or denture.

In our dental clinics, implant surgery is performed in a dedicated operating theatre Implant surgery is most often performed under local anaesthesia but, if the patient wishes, can also be performed under general anaesthesia. In this case, a specialist in anaesthesiology is involved in the operation, in addition to the specialist dentist.

Is a dental implant a good solution?

Dental implants protect your jawbone and maintain your facial features. Natural teeth support the strength and health of the bone. The force produced by chewing is transferred from the tooth roots to the bone, maintaining a good bone density. Without teeth, the jawbone doesn’t receive the necessary stimulation, which can lead to bone retraction over time. This can affect your facial features.

We recommend the use of dental implants to complete your smile, maintain the health of your jawbone and to preserve your facial features.

A dental implant looks and feels just like your own natural teeth – you can hardly notice the difference. Feel free to chat, smile and enjoy your food without worry.
We use high-quality dental implants with a comprehensive manufacturer’s guarantee. Dental implants are meant to stay in place permanently. Therefore, it’s important to choose the right kind of implant.
