Dental implants are approximately one centimetre long, narrow titanium screws that are attached to the jaw bone in a surgical procedure.The visible part of the tooth, a porcelain crown, is fixed to the implant. Dental implants are suitable for practically everyone. Implants look and feel like real teeth and can last for a lifetime if appropriately cared for.

Instructions for treating the wound, installing a temporary tooth
Installing a new dental implant requires that the gums around the missing or bad tooth are healthy. If it is better for your treatment to wait until the gums heal, you do not need to live without a tooth. If you wish, we can install a temporary tooth. After the tooth extraction, you will get a bag of ice and a prescription for painkillers, if necessary.

Installing an implant is a quick, easy and painless procedure. It is performed under local anaesthesia. If necessary, patients can be prescribed an efficient painkiller medication and antibiotic treatment. Many are positively surprised when there is no post-surgical pain at all.
