The placement of dental implants is the most effective and most modern solution for all missing teeth in the jaw, regardless of whether one or several teeth are missing in a row.
Implantology consists of oral surgery and dental prosthetics.
Through implantology we carry out a procedure that deals with all forms of missing teeth, and our main focus is on the placement of dental implants as the basic solution.
The procedure of placing dental implants requires highly educated staff and top medical equipment. It represents almost painless and safe procedure in dentistry.
Also, with this procedure, we almost completely eliminate possible problems when eating or speaking caused by the loss of teeth.
Dental Implant Procedure
Tooth loss caused by external influences or aging can seriously damage your appearance.
Regardless of the reason, the lost tooth needs to be replaced, and dental implant treatment is a long-lasting, functional and aesthetic solution that ensures a proper bite and a beautiful smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements which are implanted into the jawbone to replace the root of a lost natural tooth.
The implant in the form of a screw is inserted into the jawbone where the tooth is missing and an implantological superstructure is fixed on it, on which a specially designed prosthetic work is then installed.
The dental implant is made of biocompatible material that grows with the natural bone because the body does not recognize it as a foreign body.
At the Niveus Polyclinic, we use high quality NOBEL BIOCARE implants with a long tradition and constant development that have shown the best results and success.
When dental implants grow together with the bone, they function just like natural teeth, completely replace missing teeth and restore a sense of self-confidence and raise the quality of overall life.
Each Nobel Biocare implant is tested, has a guarantee on the material and guarantees the absence of any defects or breakage of the material.
The price and duration of the installation depends on the number of implants installed, so if you have the need to install dental implants, it is best to visit us or send an inquiry to the Polyclinic.
When are dental implants used?
Implants are placed when a single tooth is lost, several individual teeth or multiple teeth in a row or in combination with other teeth supporting other fixed or mobile prosthetic works.
The installation of a dental implant represents a better solution when only one tooth is missing, as opposed to the rehabilitation with the tooth bridge and for a simple reason – it is not necessary to grind adjacent healthy teeth to make them carriers of the bridge.
