Therapeutic Indications

Implantology is for patients suffering from tooth loss or an uncomfortable removable dental prosthesis.

The implant is placed at the level of the missing or damaged root. This allows one or more teeth to be replaced without being supported by neighboring teeth (as with a bridge).
