The implant is an artificial substitute for the root of a natural tooth, and it is placed in the jaw, often where is lost the natural tooth, or in a “strategic” position for the dentist. The implant may provide a solution to people who have lost one or more teeth, and people who have lost all of their teeth!
In such cases, where the patient in one or both jaws has no teeth, the implants may support either a removable denture giving excellent functionality, or fixed permanent porcelain teeth!
In all implant solutions the patient enjoys an excellent mouth feel, like it used to when he/she had natural teeth and while they were strong. It has a proper articulation when speaking, has perfect design and excellent functionality.
Implants are the longest and more comfortable solution, provided it has been the incident’s right choice!
The implants are placed in those who have good bone mass and are generally healthy. Bone mass can undergo improvement. What is important is the medical history of the patient, good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

The implant is the most modern and popular way to replace missing or damaged teeth. It is made of titanium, a biocompatible material and it is placed into the jaw bone, where it was the root of the missing tooth.
An implant can be implanted immediately after the extraction of the damaged in cases where it is appropriate. The implantation procedure takes about 15 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
The next step is the bone-embodiment of the implant into the jaw bone, which takes 2-4 months depending on the case. However, regarding the patient, what is interesting enough as for the next step is the installation procedure of the porcelain tooth (implant loading), which is decided by the doctor which loading protocol will be followed, depending on the quality of the jaw bone and the requirements of each incident.
An implant can be loaded either directly, within 2 to 3 days, or after a period of several months (2-4) .
