Implant - How does dental implant work?

A dental implant (or shortly implant) is an artificial tooth root made of titanium or ceramic. These materials are tolerated well by the human body. Thus, a natural connection between implant and jawbone is achieved.

A dental implant can be a safe and aesthetic replacement for a lost tooth. The result is very close to what your own teeth look like. The options range from replacing individual teeth with an implant onto which a crown is fixed. You can also have bigger gaps closed. We can also treat patients who have lost all of their teeth by inserting implant-bearing bridges.

Implants are initially inserted into the jaw bone in a sterile environment. Following this surgery they have to heal. As soon as the implant has been anchored in the bone, a crown, bridge or prosthesis can be fixed to the implant. Dental implants have been used successfully in oral surgery for many years as a replacement for missing teeth. A large number of clinical studies have proven the excellent tolerability and durability of tooth implants. This makes dental implants one of the main therapies in modern dentistry.
