Dental implants

Dental implants rebuild the missing tooth without damaging neighboring teeth. Implants are used to fix permanent or hybrid dental prostheses. Professionally fixed implants can serve many years. But don’t delay your dental check-ups. After the tooth loss, the bone in the jaw is slowly removed and in some cases it is necessary to restore a sufficient bone level before implantation, so it is better to deal with this situation immediately after the tooth has been removed.
