1. The implant is placed on the bone below the gum tissue.
2. A temporary abutment is placed on the implant until the healing phase is complete (time lapse varies from case to case). If advisable, a cosmetic temporary crown is made to fill the missing space.
3. After healing, the abutment is attached to the implant. It will hold the final custom-made crown that the dental laboratory will process to match to your other teeth.
4. Finally, the custom made crown is firmly placed onto the abutment. The tooth has been replaced without disturbing the healthy teeth next to it and bone loss has been eliminated.
Restorations over IMPLANTS are the most advanced therapy options to replace missing teeth. Dental implant restorations look, feel and function like natural teeth. Implants offer superior advantages compared to other treatments, ask your specialist about all the benefits in comparison to other treatments. We strongly recommend dental implants to attain self confidence, a perfect smile and a better quality of life.
If you are missing a tooth (or several), or you are in need of a tooth removal treatment and want to replace it in the most functional, aesthetic and natural way possible, we invite you to consider this treatment option. Compared to other treatments such as bridges and removable partials, an implant with its crown offers a long-lasting solution for missing teeth, it requires fewer follow-up office visits and it offers by far, a more comfortable feeling and a totally natural look.

STOP THE BONE LOSS THAT CAN LEAD TO PREMATURE AGING !
Losing one or several teeth sets off a chain of events that can wreak havoc not only in your health but also in your physical appearance. Besides the unattractive gap that remains, chewing and drinking become a challenge, function gets greatly diminished and thus the ability to eat and or speak correctly. While these are certainly serious issues, a potentially bigger problem continues developing out of our sight: permanent bone loss.
Without teeth to stimulate the jaw´s continuous bone modeling, the bone underneath weakens and it eventually suffers atrophy (it wastes away until totally vanished), pretty much like an inactive muscle (not frequently used or paralyzed) that gets smaller and weaker. Without functional teeth and facial bone support, the face morphs to adapt to the new structure model and it begins to look prematurely aged. The good news is that dental implants offer a permanent, natural and effective solution to prevent bone loss and improve function and physical appearance at the same time.
