Dental implants are among the most requested surgical dentistry procedures. The dentist replaces the missing teeth with implants that are surgically implanted into the jawbones, then he covers them with a crown from the top in a manner that suits and fits the teeth in the mouth naturally. There is no limit on how many of your teeth can have implants, but the one difference is cost differentials which can be ironed out after consulting your doctor, of course.
Straumann is a Swiss company and -as critically acclaimed by authorities- produces one of the most high-quality dental implants.
