What is implant?



A dental implant is a titanium implant mounted in the mouth to permanently replace a missing tooth or group of teeth. Through its construction, it perfectly recreates the structure and function of the removed tooth and is the most perfect way to supplement it.

The implant is permanently mounted in the bones of the jaw.

It consists, like a natural tooth, of the supra- and subgingival part. The subgingival part, permanently embedded in the bone, is an "artificial root" made of titanium. The feature of this material is biocompatibility, which means that the body does not recognize it as a foreign body. This allows for osseointegration, or "fusion" of the implant with the bone.

The supragingival part is usually a prosthetic crown, i.e. porcelain on zirconium or metal, having the shape and color of a natural tooth.

Patients using implants praise the excellence of this solution and agree that implants in use are no different from their own teeth.
