Tooth loss is a common occurrence due to trauma (tooth outbreaks), nausea, gum disease or aging. Whatever the reason, the loss of teeth must be replaced – for aesthetic and functional reasons. Although there are numerous options for restoring teeth such as prostheses or bridges, it has been shown that none are either functionally effective or permanent as implants. In a large number of cases, implants are the only logical choice to completely restore the functionality of the tooth and supporting structures.
Procedure before implant placement
Before embedding implants, we will check the health of your teeth and gums; If there are signs of gum disease or defect, we will cure them. The treatment will be planned after the X-ray examination to evaluate the bone quality and check the anatomy of the support structure and after a conversation in which you will be fully acquainted with the further procedure.

After a period of recovery upgrade is placed on an implant, which is support for subsequent dental prosthesis.
A month or two later, after strengthening the gums replacement teeth or denture is placed on the implant.
