Our Commitment to Dental Excellence

Implantology is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the study, planning, and placement of dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of materials like titanium or zirconia that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth (crowns), bridges, or dentures. Implantology plays a crucial role in restoring oral function, aesthetics, and overall dental health for individuals who have lost one or more natural teeth due to various reasons, such as decay, trauma, or gum disease.

Key aspects of implantology include:

  1. Assessment and Planning: Implantologists evaluate a patient's oral health, bone density, and overall suitability for dental implants. Detailed treatment planning involves considering the number of implants needed, their precise placement, and the type of prosthetic (replacement teeth) that will be attached to the implants.

  2. Surgical Placement: The surgical phase involves the precise placement of dental implants into the jawbone. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation. After implant placement, a healing period is necessary for osseointegration, which is the process of the implant fusing with the surrounding bone tissue.

  3. Restoration: Once the implants have fully integrated with the bone, abutments (connectors) are attached to them. These abutments serve as anchors for the prosthetic teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, to be securely affixed to the implants.

  4. Maintenance and Follow-up: Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene are essential to maintain the health and longevity of dental implants. Patients are advised on how to care for their implants and replacement teeth.

Implantology has become a popular and effective solution for tooth replacement due to its long-term success, natural appearance, and the ability to improve chewing and speaking abilities. It offers a permanent and stable alternative to traditional removable dentures or bridges supported by natural teeth.
