A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed in the jaw bone which supports a tooth replacement (crown), bridge or denture. Our patients who have already had their teeth reconstructed on implants say that they look, function and feel just like the patients own permanent teeth.

Dental components: implant, abutment, tooth-colored composite.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Best alternative for healthy permanent teeth.
Dental implants are resistant and stable. They look and function the same way as the patients own teeth.

Long-term solution
Traditional bridges, performed with due diligence, may last for 10 years or more but, at some point in time, they may need replacement while well-maintained implants may last a lifetime.

Better comfort of life
Teeth restored on implants look just like the patients own teeth and, unlike removable dentures, they will not loosen up or simply fall out during a conversation, laughter or eating.  Dental implants do not require denture adhesives and oral hygiene should be maintained just like for the patient?s own teeth.

Better health and good looks 
If one or more teeth are lost, the quality of occlusion deteriorates, which may gradually lead to the loss of the jaw bone mass. As a result, the shape and resilience of the jaw and, consequently, the face changes. Dental implants prevent this process or even help to stimulate bone growth.

Ease of eating and speaking
Removable denture may interfere with pronunciation and, which is worse, precise chewing, thus having an adverse effect on digestion.  Patients with implants, which are just like their own teeth, do not experience any problems of this kind.

Protection of the existing natural teeth
If one or more teeth are missing, the existing teeth, without any support provided by their absent neighbours, move onto their place, which causes problems with occlusion and, as a result, may even lead to the loss of other teeth. Patients may avoid this kind of problems and enjoy a toothy smile by having the missing teeth replaced with dental implants.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Are Dental Implants right for me?

If you’re missing one or more teeth, probably so! Nearly anyone in good health whose jaw has finished growing is a candidate, whether they were simply born without a tooth or lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, gum (periodontal) disease, infection or another reason. Dental implants also are a great option for patients who don?t want the drawbacks of, or can no longer wear, removable dentures.

The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to see a dental implant expert. Be sure to mention if you are a smoker, any medical conditions you have, and any over-the-counter and prescription medications you take.

Are Dental Implants safe?

Proven safe and effective at replacing missing teeth, contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years. Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally. In addition, dental implants are the only restoration method that stimulates your natural bone underneath the missing tooth.
