Loss of a tooth is a very common phenomenon in today’s society. There are many reasons for losing a tooth. These causes include periodontal disease, caries, dental trauma and more. Some phenomena, such as the unpredictable and uncontrolled movement of adjacent teeth, the resulting chewing and speaking disorder and the general dysfunction of the ortho-magnetic system and the temporomandibular structure, are inevitable. Loss of a tooth also results in an over-increasing jaw bone resorption, making it difficult to recover in the future. When the loss is in the front region of the mouth, apart from function, the aesthetic of the individual is also disturbed, with immediate effects on the smile’s reluctance, influence on one’s psychology and social behavior. For the above reasons, the empty space created when a tooth is lost must be restored in the most appropriate way.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are the most up-to-date dental science achievement and are the standard in the treatment of tooth loss. Most of them are made of high quality medical titanium, which is one of the most powerful and biocompatible materials. Titanium implants are placed in the bone of the jaws, incorporated into it and replace the roots of lost natural teeth. Subsequently, prosthetic restorations are made on the implants, replacing the missing natural tooth mills. An implant or a combination of implants can support a sheath, tooth bridges or even whole dentures.


– unattractive smile.
– loss of chewing ability.
– increased bone mass loss.


– alteration of healthy teeth.
– bone loss continues.


– full chewing ability.
– does not destroy healthy teeth.
– stops bone loss.

Benefits of implants

Implants work to a significant degree, almost like natural teeth. For this reason, most people who have implants in their mouth perform the functions of chewing, talking and smiling comfortably, which has the benefit of boosting their confidence. Also, an important advantage of implants is their longevity, since with proper oral hygiene and care, they can be maintained even for a lifetime. Another important advantage is that the adjacent teeth are left intact, since each prosthetic restoration rests entirely on the implants.

Replacement of a tooth

A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without interfering with healthy adjacent teeth.


Loss of a tooth


The implant is placed in the jaw under the gums


The bracket and final case are manufactured to match the other teeth

Multiple tooth replacement

When more than one tooth is missing, dental implants are the best treatment. Multiple implants are placed and manufactured either by individual hoops or by implantable bridges.

The implants are placed in the jaw under the gums


The brackets and the end crowns are made to match the other teeth

Hybrid restoration (fixed denture)

If all upper or lower teeth are missing, a personalized denture can be permanently fixed using dental implants. The number of implants varies by patient. New teeth are firmly supported by implants, preventing bone loss. The intervener can remove the denture whenever needed for its maintenance and cleaning.

Removable denture supported by implants

If all of the upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple implants can be used to support a new removable denture that will securely rest on a personalized bar.

New teeth are firmly supported by implants. Your new denture can be removed daily to clean it.

Implant-stabilized denture

If all of the upper or lower teeth are missing, one option may be to fix the removable denture using a small number of implants. This is often an affordable solution. After healing, braces are implanted and your existing denture is modified or a new one made. The denture “snaps” onto the implants and is removed daily to clean.


Two or more implants are placed


Loss of all lower teeth


The denture is fixed on the implants

Treatment Procedure:

First appointment

At the first appointment, the patient becomes acquainted with the physician, expresses his / her concerns and concerns about the problem and receives a complete dental and medical history. Following is the clinical examination and the study of radiographs. In our clinic, all implant cases are treated only after a complete radiographic examination and if needed, a 3D radiographic imaging (CBCT) is required, which provides us with a 3D imaging of the area and anatomical structures and increases the predictability and safety in placement. implants.

The patient is then presented with all possible treatment plans and the most appropriate solutions are suggested for each case, while analyzing the cost of the treatment. Finally, prescribe the appropriate medication the patient will receive and schedule the day of the surgical implant placement.

Second appointment – Implant placement

In the second session, the implants are surgically placed in accordance with the treatment plan preceding. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, under completely painless conditions and with the most stringent sterilization conditions of equipment, materials and medical personnel.

Waiting time

The waiting time until final recovery varies depending on the case and the treatment plan that has been decided. In some cases, prosthetic restoration is made immediately after implantation (immediate loading of implants). In most cases, it takes 2-4 months, depending on the site of placement and the quality of the bone, for complete osteogenesis of the implants.

This waiting period can be extended if directed bone regeneration is achieved by implanting a bone graft to increase the size of the nozzle. When waiting, a temporary prosthetic restoration is usually made, especially if it is an aesthetic area.

Prosthetic rehabilitation

After waiting for the osteosynthesis to be implanted, we proceed with their surgical disclosure and final construction of the prosthetic restoration that has been decided on in the treatment plan.

Care after treatment

Many patients are mistaken in the expectation that since they now have artificial teeth, they do not have to interfere with their cleanliness. On the contrary, the need to perform daily and diligent oral hygiene is more urgent after implant placement. Patients in our clinic, prior to implant placement, are trained in proper oral hygiene methods using toothbrushes, dental floss and other interdental cleaning agents. The post-treatment re-inspections are performed every 6 months to confirm the proper functioning of the restorations, the stability and health of the adipose tissue and the patient’s good oral hygiene. Thus, we prevent any inflammation that may form in the mouth and ensure long-term stay and proper functioning of the implants.
