Straumann Dental Implants
What is a dental implant?

The best way to replace a tooth is to mimic it as closely as possible. Dental implants do just that.

A dental implant is a small post-like device made of titanium or titanium zirconium.

Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, dental implants act as a base to anchor the visible portion of the artificial tooth – ranging from individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, or full-arch dental prostheses.

A dental implant is the only solution that replaces the missing tooth root, offering important benefits:

  • Feels and looks like a natural tooth
  • Helps prevent and minimize bone loss
  • Helps preserve surrounding, healthy teeth
  • Improves appearance

Since every surgical procedure carries potential risks, patients should always consult a dental professional to evaluate whether dental implants are the option for them.
