In the last couple of years, dental implants have become more and more popular, with over 3 million patients worldwide.

A dental implant is a surgical procedure which seeks to replace fallen or decaying teeth with artificial, but natural-looking ones. The screw (dental implant) plays the role of an artificial root which is inserted into the bone. This is the basis of the tooth and can sustain one or more artificial teeth (crowns). The abutment connects the artificial tooth (crown) to the screw. The crown represents the artificial tooth and it is carefully made in special laboratories to resemble natural teeth in shape and color.

The success rate of dental implants is over 98% worldwide.

What are the benefits of a dental implant?

Dental implants are made to look, feel and function like natural teeth. Moreover, they give patients a boost of self-confidence, helping them smile, eat and talk, without having to worry about how they look.

With proper care and hygiene, dental implants can last a very long time.

Dental implants are made with high-quality materials, which are biocompatible with the human body. Also, because of the high level of technology available, the success rate of this kind of treatment is very high.

When is a dental implant necessary?
