A dental implant is a metal fixture (usually a screw) that is placed into the jaw bone. It acts as a support for a false tooth or a set of false teeth. The fixture fuses with the jaw bone (osseointegration).
Implants are made of commercially and medically pure Titanium. This is the same metal that has been successfully used in hip replacements for many years. It is inert and is not known to cause any type of rejection phenomenon.
Dental implants provide a number of benefits for people seeking alternatives and solutions to the problems created by tooth loss. These benefits include:
Dental Implants offer several major advantages to patients after tooth loss. The ability to recover the natural appearance of teeth is one of the greatest advantages.

Dental Implants Treatments Explained
Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. The implant, which is made of titanium, is fitted in the bone where the tooth’s root would normally be. When the implant is fully integrated to the bone, a post is attached to it. A crown can be placed over the post to replace the missing tooth.
Implants are generally done in 2 Phases:
Surgical: This is when the implant is placed. The initial implant placement will take around 45 minutes – 3hours depending and is usually done under local anesthetic, but conscious sedation is also offered if you wish. It takes about three to six months for the implant to fully integrate with the bone of your jaw. (A temporary denture may need to be worn during this phase).
Restoration: This is where the permanent crown (tooth) is placed on the implant(s) after the implant has mended to the bone.
You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants – from a single tooth to a complete set.
Single Implant: From: €2,200
Multiple Implants: From: €2,000
