1. What is a dental implant?

The dental implant is an artificial root which enables to replace the root of a natural lost tooth.
It is a small titanium screw, which has size as a root of natural tooth.
Titanium is a biocompatible material which integrates into the bone (as for the prostheses of hip).

2. Why a dental implant?

To replace a missing tooth, the dental implant is an alternative to the removable prosthesis or bridges.

The implant is placed in the bone of the jaw thanks to a surgical operation under local anesthesia, and functions like the root of your natural tooth.

It offers many advantages, in particular:

  • To preserve your other teeth
  • To preserve the bone of your jaws
  • To regain confidence in yourself

3. Comparison between implant and natural teeth :

All the natural teeth have a core in dentine surrounded by a layer of enamel, and are anchored in the bone of the jaw by their roots.

The tooth on implant has a crown which reproduces exactly the layer of enamel of the teeth which surround it. The crown is fixed on a mainstay, the equivalent of the core of dentine. The pillar is solidarized with the implant which is anchored in the bone of the jaw and is used as artificial root.

The new tooth has the same appearance and the same function as your natural teeth.
