WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS? (Referred to as prosthodontics)
Dental implants represent a common procedure of permanently replacing missing teeth without affecting neighboring teeth and are commonly referred to as prosthodontics.
With the help of dental implants, we can fully replace a missing tooth and thus strongly improve chewing and speaking abilities as well as restore a beautiful smile. Implants can also serve as carriers of a fixed dental bridge or denture.
