Losing a tooth affects our capacity to chew and phonatory function (the way we pronounce sounds) as well as altering the aesthetics of the smile.
A dental implant comprises an artificial root made from titanium or zirconia. These two materials are the most biocompatible with the human body, giving support to the tooth or the lost teeth.
Various types of prosthesis can be made for one or more implants, from a crown or ‘single’ tooth to a full arch or ‘a set of teeth or denture’. Faced with alternatives such as removable crowns and dentures for life, it has been shown that implants improve the quality of life of a patient incomparably.
