Dental implant

What is a dental implant?

The dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It is composed of two parts: the implant which is inserted into the jawbone and the pillar which supports the new artificial tooth. The implants and pillars are biocompatible, pure 99% titanium allowing their fusions with the jaw bone: this is osseointegration. Dental implants have the advantage of being permanent and very resistant. They help experience the same sensations as with natural teeth. They are attractive, offer a perfect reproduction of the tooth and require very little maintenance.

When should we resort to implants?

  • Where a single tooth is missing, the remaining teeth typically bear a disproportionate pressure which results in disorders of the mandibular joint. The best treatment lies in choosing an implant.
  • If several teeth are missing, and are too damaged to support a traditional dental bridge, the solution of a bridge supported by implant is considered. In this case, the number of necessary implants is less than the number of replaced teeth. For three or four missing teeth, just two implants will easily support the required three or four crowns.
  • If your removable dentures lack stability, with the help of implants, we can give them a stable base to allow wearing them in all circumstances.

In order to not live with the inconvenience of dentures, know that there is always an appropriate implant solution. Implants allow us to fully replace your teeth with a fixed set of teeth (8 implants on the upper part of the jaw and 8 on the lower part). You will thus find the same comfort and aesthetics of perfect teeth as with natural teeth.

Day 3:

Last control and guidance before your return to France.

Day 4
(Second time):

Checking the healing and good integration of your implant.
Small incision under local anesthesia to remove the healing cap.
Impression taking and sending to the lab for creating your crown.

Days 5, 6 and 7:

Manufacturing and testing your crown, occlusion check and at last final fixing of your new tooth.

How does the operation unfold?

The preparations having been completed, we can replace your teeth with an implant. A local anesthetic guarantees a painless treatment. Once the implant bed is numbed, the implantologist incises your gums and drills a pre-calibrated hole in your jaw. The titanium implant is then inserted therein, and your gum stitched. The surgery is complete, it will have lasted less than 20 min. The healing of an average of 3 or 4 months takes place.
