The possibility of replacing a missing tooth without damaging the remaining teeth is certainly the goal we strive for in dentistry today. Implantology is a part of modern clinical dentistry.
Long-term practice has shown that implant placement is a routine procedure that lasts about thirty minutes. It is completely painless and is performed under a local anesthesia. Implants solve the problem of one or more missing teeth, with the implant serving as a carrier for future prosthetic replacement.
It takes almost three months for the bone to grow together with the implant (osseointegration). After that, a crown or a bridge can be placed on the implant – depending on the number of the teeth being worked on.
