Implants are artificial roots of teeth on which crowns will be fixed to replace missing teeth. At the same time we prevent further bone loss in this area.
However not every lost tooth has to be replaced by an implant. Eventually we can show you alternatives which will be for you as a patient more advantageous.
To decide if an implant can be placed or not we evaluate your general health, thickness of your gums also hight and thickness of your bone to evaluate if an implant can be placed.
Three dimensional xray (DVT) help us to determine where implants can be placed
