Dental implants are devices made of titanium used to replace the root of the tooth and give support to a prosthesis, thus contributing to improved physical appearance and masticatory function.
They are suitable for patients who have lost one, several or all of their teeth.
Structure of a natural tooth compared to a prosthesis on an implant
Dental implants naturally rehabilitate masticatory function and appearance(3).
A major advantage of the use of prostheses on implants is the fact that they do not move around in the mouth when eating or speaking. This certainty provides a more natural(3) and comfortable result than bridges or conventional dentures, thus improving well-being and your quality of life.
