Implantology, Fixed or Removable Dentistry

A dental implant is an artificial titanium root which has the property of being able to naturally merge with existing bone (osseointegration). A dental implant is like the root of a tooth, supporting it and stimulating the growth of bone cells. Unlike other methods used to replace missing teeth, dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth, do not decay, and stimulate bone, thus preserving the bone wedge.

These titanium roots can support:

  • a single tooth
  • a few teeth
  • all teeth

Warnings and Recommendations

Implants are not for everyone. Here are the requirements :

  • Excellent general health
  • Healthy gums
  • A bone base strong enough to support the implant

You must also:

  • Thoroughly take care of your implant(s)
  • Please make regular appointments with the dentist afterwards to ensure healthy implants
