Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. They are made of Biocompatible medical-grade titanium. The implant is placed and then left to heal and integrate completely into the bone for the next few months. Once the bone is healed around the implant, a dental implant crown can be attached to the implant with the help of an abutment. Dental implant crowns look and feel very similar to natural teeth crowns.
Implants can be placed as a single implant supporting one crown or multiple implants supporting a bridge if more than one tooth is missing in an area. There are also full dentures or full sets of ceramic teeth that can be supported by multiple implants and can deliver excellent stability, aesthetics, and function.
Dental implant placement and restoration requires a wide knowledge of surgical dentistry and biomechanics to be able to select the best material and get predictable results that ensure the treatment’s long-term success and deliver a natural-looking outcome. Dr. Hans has been restoring implants regularly for several years now and is doing advanced courses in the placement and restoration of dental implants.
