The dental implant is a screw-shaped buttress, which
replaces the natural dental root. The implant is inserted
in the jawbone, where it will be firmly embedded by
the bone after an average of 6-8 weeks. During this
healing phase, dental implants are usually not covered
by soft tissue, so a further surgical procedure is
not required when the crown is attached.
Dental implants are made from commercially pure titanium.
This material is integrated without complications

implants more closely mimic natural teeth
in appearance, feel and function.

three-unit bridge used to replace a single
tooth, the healthy adjacent teeth do not have
to be modified to support the bridge
