What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium, which is a metal that the body easily accepts. The dental implant is inserted into the bone of the jaw, and over time the jawbone integrates with the implant surface, firmly anchoring it.
After the healing process a crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the implant.
A dental implant is a substitute for a natural root. Implants are usually made of titanium, a metal that is well-tolerated by the body. Over time, the jawbone becomes firmly united with the implant. Crowns, bridges or dentures can be attached to the implant by screws or clips.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures.
One missing tooth
Replacing missing teeth is essential to your overall dental hygiene as a gap leaves the remaining teeth unsupported. These may drift along the jaw line, reducing the spaces between them; they may become weaker, making brushing and flossing more difficult. Missing teeth can change the shape of your face and make you look older and less healthy.

with dental implants
Our master implantologists do not recommend ALL-ON-4 or ALL-ON-6 systems. Though these solutions use less amount of implants, by using longer ones towards the front of the jaw, to provide an increased bone-to-implant contact area, but extra stability has to be gained by placing the rear implants at an angle to avoid extra bone grafting. However the angled implants create extra stress, which makes this system prone to failure. If an All-on-4 restoration fails, it might not be possible to place new implants in the future. The All-on-4 method does not mean that all the costs are the price of four implants, it requires special CT based surgical guide and CT scans during the process.
