When using an implant and what are its advantages?

The implants can be used for:

  • Replacing several teeth with a bridge supported by implants
  • Replace all teeth with one or more fixed bridges anchored in implants
  • Stabilization of dentures

  • May decrease the physiological loss of bone tissue resulting from tooth extraction
