Every lost tooth needs to be replaced to maintain the integrity and functionality of the entire oral cavity. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The advantages of using implants are that they do not rely on neighboring teeth and are a permanent and stable solution. Therefore, if you are missing one or more teeth and want to smile, speak, and eat comfortably and without embarrassment, we have great news for you!

Dental implants are your best solution.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants are made of titanium and are perfectly compatible with bone tissue. This is why they are the best replacement for a natural root. Each implant can support one or more replacement teeth and, if installed by experts, has a lifetime lifespan. Since the installation of dental implants is a surgical procedure, it is very important to rely on experienced and professional hands. Dr. Matko Božić is a top specialist in oral surgery with twenty years of experience in the field of implantology and will ensure that the entire procedure goes perfectly.

Are you a candidate for dental implant placement?

A dental implant can be placed in various cases, in the absence of one or more teeth. Some of these situations are:

  • Loss of one or more teeth: If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be placed to fill the gap. They provide a permanent solution because the implants are implanted directly into the jawbone.
  • Weakening or damage to teeth: If a tooth has significant damage or weakness that makes it unusable, an implant can be placed instead of that tooth to restore the function of chewing and the aesthetics of the smile.
  • Replacement of a complete denture: If you are missing all teeth in the upper or lower jaw, dental implants can be used to stabilize a complete denture, making them more secure and functional.
  • Aesthetic reasons: Dental implants can improve the appearance of your smile and self-confidence, especially if you are missing a visible tooth at the front of the mouth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

The installation of dental implants has many advantages compared to other methods of replacing lost teeth. Some of the main advantages of dental implants:

  1. Implants are the best solution for replacing a lost tooth.
    Dental implants fully replace the lost tooth, and their hardness and durability withstand the greatest loads when chewing.
  2. You do not destroy your healthy teeth!
    Implants are placed in the bone at the location of the lost tooth, and the neighboring teeth remain natural and preserved for many years. In this way, we extend the life of your healthy teeth and prevent the teeth from moving in an unwanted direction.
  3. Fixed teeth help with speech!
    The implant allows bridge structures to remain fixed and patients very quickly and easily get used to the new teeth, and the pronunciation of words is completely natural.
  4. Implants protect your healthy bone!
    When decayed teeth are lost, it is very important to place an implant in place of the lost tooth as soon as possible to protect the healthy bone in the long term. If a lot of time passes from the loss of a tooth to the upgrade, bone resorption occurs in height and width, which requires additional procedures to regenerate the bone and be able to install the implant. Our advice is to install an implant as soon as possible after losing a tooth to preserve your healthy bone.
  5. Rejuvenate the appearance of your face and restore a youthful smile!
    Loss of teeth causes a change in the proportion of the face and very often the lower third of the face drops, which leads to pain in the joint, and neighboring teeth continue to grow and tilt. Often nasolabial folds deepen, leading to aging of the face. Implants and dental bridges quickly restore the proportionality and aesthetics of the lower third of the face, rejuvenating the overall appearance of the face.
  6. Implants are made to last!
    Dental implants are a long-term solution. Traditional dental bridges supported by ground teeth can last 10 years and more years, but at a certain point, they need to be replaced. Dental implants are a solution for life if hygiene is maintained according to the dentist’s instructions and if you regularly come for annual check-ups and tartar cleaning. The best implant companies guarantee a lifetime lifespan of implants from all types of implant fractures and are made of titanium material that is tested for many loads.

The procedure for installing a dental implant

The installation procedure is teamwork involving the patient, the dentist, and the oral surgeon. Your oral surgeon and dentist will consult with you to determine where and how to install the implant. Depending on the condition of the patient and the type of chosen implant, the oral surgeon will create a treatment plan tailored to individual needs.

Installation is quick, simple, and if the patient’s CBCT image is precise, the installation goes smoothly. Problems can occur in the absence of bone at the place of implant installation, which is not an unsolvable problem but just slightly prolongs the procedure and the way of installation.

The dental implant is made of titanium or zirconium and is implanted in a special surgical procedure into the jawbone.

The modern biocompatible surface of the implant allows good fusion with the bone, as the organism does not recognize it as a foreign body and its bioactive surface helps the bone to fuse with the dental implant in a relatively short time and ensures long-term stability.
