Over the past decades, implantatology has greatly expanded the possibilities for dental replacement. Implants enable us to replace individual teeth without having to grind any neighboring teeth, as well as to avoid removable bridgework or to stabilize dentures that are difficult to adhere. An implant is an artificial dental root, which is surgically implanted in the jaw bone and to which pressure can be applied after it is completely grown into the bone during a months-long healing period. Then the implant is given a suprastructure and becomes fully functional. The suprastructure consists of an abutment and a crown, bridge or denture.
