An implant is a titanium or ceramic screw which is inserted in the jawbone in a surgical procedure and acts as a replacement root. The replacement tooth (crown, bridge or removable denture) is then attached to the dental implant.
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, close a gap of one or more missing teeth, restore a shortened dental arch or provide a solution for a toothless jaw. Ask our implantologist. We will be happy to advise you.
Fixed teeth in a day!
This treatment method makes it possible to give you a new, fixed (non-removable) set of teeth in just one day. As a rule four implants per jaw are needed. Immediately after insertion of the implants a fully functional provisional bridge can be fitted which remains in place until the implants have completely healed into the jawbone. This means that you leave the practice with a new, fixed set of teeth on the day of treatment.
This treatment technique is ideal for patients with all their upper or lower teeth missing or with teeth that cannot be saved.

Having one or more missing teeth influences the adjacent teeth and can also affect overall jaw and tooth alignment. This often leads to changes in tooth position or an abnormal bite.
We recommend early diagnosis to find the best possible solution for you (crowns, bridges, partial dentures, full dentures, fixed or removable) in good time.

Endodontics (root canal treatment) deals with the interior of the teeth (pulp, dentine and root apex). Inflammation is usually caused by caries bacteria which have penetrated into the interior of the tooth and multiplied. This often leads to severe toothache and calls for prompt rooth canal treatment. Root canal treatment or apicoectomy is also performed to preserve a tooth that is "dead" or injured.
Periodontics addresses the tissues supporting the teeth. These include the gums, the bone and the fibres. The most common reason for tooth loss in adults after tooth decay is periodontal disease. Periodontics is the specialty that focuses on treating this condition.
The disease is divided into three stages:
