Dental implants, a modern dental medicine practice


Many people lose teeth over the course of their life

as a result of accidents, cavities, gum disease

or other reasons.

Modern implantology has become a well-established technique that offers many advantages.



What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a screw that is usually made of titanium but can also be made of zirconia, as an alternative to metal.

During surgery, which is performed at our clinic, the implant will be inserted into the jawbone,

where, essentially, it replaces the root of the missing tooth.

A dental prosthesis (crown, brace, etc.) is then fixed onto this artificial abutment.


Using this implant technique, we can replace a single tooth, fill a considerable gap between two teeth or fix a removable prosthesis into a toothless jaw.
