Dental Implants
Dental Implants replace your missing teeth and feel as if you've got your natural teeth back. For this reason, implants are among the best solutions in cases of tooth replacement. They can replace one or more teeth, and are also used for stabilising and retaining dentures.
Many patients, for various reasons, have trouble getting used to dentures. Fixed prosthetic works on implants resolve such issues. An implant consists of an artificial root which is implanted in the bone. After a period of time necessary for ossification, other parts are made, including a crown or a bridge. In any case, implants improve the quality of life.

The advantages of implants reflect in the fact that they are independent and do not require honing the surrounding healthy teeth. Additionally, they contribute to the preservation of the bone. No other methods offer such advantages; for example, dentures accelerate the deterioration of the bone which makes them more uncomfortable and less stable in time.
