Implantology is the area of Dental Medicine responsible for replacing lost teeth with the use of dental implants.
The absence of a tooth represents an impact on the entire oral cavity. If the missing tooth is not replaced, adjacent teeth and antagonists undergo various movements that can lead to difficulty chewing, gingival problems, loss of more teeth and alteration of the aesthetics of the smile.
The use of dental implants is an excellent option when there is the loss of one or more teeth, or even in situations where it is necessary to rehabilitate an entire jaw (total rehabilitation). It allows the maintenance of bone structure and facial aesthetics and allows normal chewing without the concerns associated with the use of removable prostheses.
