Dental implant is an equivalent of a tooth root embedded in the bone of the mandible or maxilla constituting a pillar for prosthetic reconstruction, such as a bridge, crown or denture. Implantation is about placing the implant in such a way that the maxilla would rebuilt itself tightly around the implant. 

This process is called "osseointegration" and enables a stable and powerful maintenance of a new tooth. The first phase of implant surgery is an individual treatment plan. The treatment plan is prepared in accordance with an implantologist who will adjust it to the patient`s individual needs. Trusting the experience of our implantologist specialising in oral cavity surgery and dental prosthetics, it will be possible to obtain a coordinated care and to select the best implantological solution for the patient. The implant procedure consists of two stages. The first one is called a surgical part and the second, a prosthetic part.

Surgical part
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The implant is grafted into the bone in place of a missing tooth. During the healing of maxilla, the new bone "overgrows" around the engrafted implant (the previously mentioned "osseointegration"), which gives a safe and effective stabilization of the implant in maxilla. Healing process lasts from 6 to 12 weeks.

Prosthetic part
After the process of osseointegration, the implant is attached to the so-called connector which stabilise a new crown or bridge. Implementation of prosthetic reconstruction consists of taking up the impressions of all teeth to restore the occlusal conditions. The taken impressions are given to the laboratory. On their basis, a prosthetic reconstruction is performed. A color of new crown or bridge will be perfectly matched to the natural color of patient`s teeth. With the stable placing of the implant in bone, the reconstructed tooth works and looks like the natural one.
