A dental implant is made of titanium and looks like a screw. It is anchored in the jawbone and serves as the root for a secure attachment of the individual prosthesis. Once set, the implant can be used for various indications, such as crowns, bridges or dentures. With a dental implant, you will receive a permanent denture that feels like and looks like your own teeth.

The term implant derives from the Latin “implantare” which means planting. Applied on dentistry, this means planting an artificial root. This artificial root can be a screw or a cylinder made of titanium and anchored in the jawbone.

Dental implants can replace one tooth or you can rehabilitate an entire dentition with it. We like to compare implants with "Lego blocks". The more blocks I have, the higher buildings I can build. Patients with an inadequate dental stability can get a sufficient chewing ability with two implants – are you have six to eight blocks and establish a fixed ceramic work on it.
