Dental Implants

Dental Implants

santorinidentalclinicDental Implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts called “abutments” are then attached to the implants, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration, which occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are the alternative to bridges or dentures. A well documented perspective on lost tooth replacement. Implants can be an excellent choice if a number of conditions are met like non smoking and good oral hygiene, regular maintenance by a professional, general health condition of the person and of course local factors.

Currently we use only Straumann implants, one of the leading brands in implantology, well known for their well documented abilities. We focus on quality staying on the safe side rather than being cheap.
