Dental implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. The benefit of using implants is that they do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support and are a permanent and stable solution.

The implants are made of titanium and are perfectly compatible with bone tissue. They may support one or more replacement teeth in case of crowns and bridges and fixed or semi-fixed dentures. If fitted by a specialist, they have a lifelong life cycle.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last, that is, the eight teeth in the dental arch that develop and appear in your mouth. They usually grow between the ages of 17 and 25, at an age called the ""age of wisdom"" after which they were named.

The wisdom teeth should not be removed if they grow completely, if they are functional, do not cause pain, are not affected by caries, are in a proper position and are easy to clean.

Most often they need to be surgically removed in the following cases:

  • due to infections and/or periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • caries that cannot be cured
  • cysts, tumours and other diseases
  • damage to surrounding teeth


Even though most root canals function well, sometimes that is not enough. If the infection from the dead nerve inside the tooth extends beyond the root of the tooth and affects the surrounding bone tissue, your dentist will advise you to consult an oral surgeon for an apicoectomy. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the affected part of the root to clear the infection of the tooth and surrounding bone and then fills the root with a specific material to prevent possible future infections.

Sinus lift

Sinus lift is a surgical therapy in the upper jaw. It implies raising the bottom of the sinus while filling the bone defect to create sufficient bone thickness for implant placement. This therapy is usually needed because of long-lasting toothlessness, due to the loss of the upper teeth 3, 4, 5, 6, which leads to bone resorption and maxillary sinus pneumatization.
