Dental implantology is a new branch of dentistry
which involves the reconstruction of missing teeth
and their supporting structures.
In 1952, Professor
Per-Ingvar Branemark, a Swedish surgeon, whilst
conducting research into the healing patterns
of bone tissue, accidentally discovered that when
pure titanium comes into direct contact with the
living bone tissue, the two literally grow together
to form a permanent biological adhesion. He named
this phenomenon "osseointegration". Today, modern
dental implants, developed from the principles
of osseointegration are routinely used in hundreds
of clinics and hospitals world-wide, and sought
after by thousands of patients because they have
been proven to provide comfortable, permanent
and attractive tooth replacements as an alternative
to removable dentures and conventional bridges.
bond biologically to the living bone tissue.

your teeth firmly and safely.
• Implants restore function and aesthetics
to normal levels.
• Eating, talking and chewing need no longer
be painful experiences.
• Dental implants prevent progressive bone
atrophy and shrinkage.
If you are missing
one or more of your natural teeth, you may benefit
from dental implants

or any combination of these.
