A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium, a well tolerated metal, that integrates readily with the body.
The dental implant is inserted in the jaw bone by a short operation, usually under local anaesthetic and sedation. It subsequently forms a solid base for the long-term, stable fixation for the final restoration.
Dental Implants can be used as soon as jaw growth is complete.
It requires a good general state of health, good oral hygiene and adequate bone quality and volume.
