Like natural teeth
Dental Implants are a safe, reliable and well-proven solution for permanently replacing one or more missing teeth.
With dental implants you can laugh and eat confidently — knowing that your new teeth are securely held in place. Benefits of dental implants
• Eliminate the need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth as required by traditional crown and bridge procedures.
• Help to maintain facial structures and the bone tissue in the jaw.
• Eliminate the use of denture adhesives and help to eliminate the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small screw that acts as an artificial tooth root when placed in the jawbone. It is made of titanium, a metal well documented for integrating with human bone to create a stable foundation. An abutment is then fitted to the top of the implant to create an anchor for the placement of a crown, bridge, or prosthesis.
A proven therapy Since the 1960s,
Dental implants have been used successfully in millions of people worldwide as a long-term solution for renewed quality of life.
Implants by Dentsplay Sirona Implants are developed based on biological and biomechanical principles. Our implants are backed by extensive clinical and scientific documentation.
The design of implants by Dentsplay Sirona Implants also allows for shorter healing times, less chairtime for you as a patient, and the confidence of predictable long-term and esthetic results that only decades of clinical research can bring.
Solutions for every situation
By acting as a tooth root, a dental implant provides a stable foundation for a replacement tooth that stays securely in place, so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Implants are also an optimal solution for replacing several teeth and can be placed to support individual crowns or a single bridge. Because implants act as replacement tooth roots, support from adjacent healthy teeth is not necessary
In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported dentures and full bridges are designed to be an effective and stable long-term solution. Implants eliminate the need for adhesives to keep dentures in place, as well as the sores and pain often associated with ill-fitting dentures.
By stimulating the jawbone, implants also help to maintain the bone and the natural shape of your face.

The Benefits of having Dental Implants
Functional and aesthetic – They look, feel and function like your natural teeth.
Maintain facial structure – Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulates bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result while helping to maintain facial structures.
Biocompatibility – Dental implants are made of pure titanium. This material is perfectly compatible with the body and over time becomes completely integrated with the bone tissue. Extensive scientific documentation from clinical studies confirms that implants enable very good results — over both the short- and long-term.
Long-term solution – Replacement materials are available even after many years. Implant abutments can be replaced at any time or adjusted to conform to a subsequent change in the prosthetic situation. Dentsply Sirona offers a lifetime warranty to clinicians for titanium clinical components and five (5) years for clinical components manufactured in zirconia.*(*For full warranty information, refer to the detailed terms and conditions on www.dentsplyimplants.com)
Secure bridge or prosthesis – They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures.
The ADI aims to provide the public with an improved understanding of the benefits of implantology and its Members with the benefits of ongoing education.
