Implantology is a Specialty in Dentistry dedicated to the replacement of missing teeth through implants. Lack of comfort and confidence, especially related to social embarrassment, are aspects associated with the use of removable dentures.  On the other hand, the pressure exerted by removable dentures on adjacent teeth and gums can cause damage, which in extreme cases result in receding gums and bone loss and consequently in additional teeth being lost due to lack of tooth support.

Dental implants range from the replacement of a single tooth to total rehabilitation (replacement) of all teeth.

In the latter case, it is not necessary to replace each tooth with an implant. Only 4 implants are needed to support all the teeth on either upper or lower jaw.

Currently the success rate is well above 90%, having become the treatment of choice for the replacement of missing teeth.
