Implantology is a branch of oral surgery and part of the daily routine in dental practices. It offers solutions for all kinds of edentulism, from the loss of a single tooth to missing all of them.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a quality replacement for one or more teeth. Implants are positioned in the upper or lower jaw and represent the replacement of the lost natural tooth root.
Who is an adequate candidate for an implantology treatment?
Any patient with a satisfactory general and oral health, as well as an adequate bone volume, is an ideal candidate for this kind of procedure

Computer guided implantology
In implantology, computer-guided technology can be applied, which, thanks to the 3D technique, determines the perfect position for the implant, considering bone density, blood flow and jaw morphology.
