Implantology is a specialized field of dentistry that deals with the placement of dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. The implants are made of titanium or a titanium alloy and are designed to fuse with the bone over time, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth.


Implantology treatment typically involves several stages, including:

  • Consultation: The first step in implantology treatment is a consultation with a dentist or implant specialist. During this appointment, the dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your medical history, and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
  • Treatment planning: Once you have been deemed a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is treatment planning. This involves creating a customized treatment plan based on your needs and goals. This may include taking x-rays or CT scans to evaluate the condition of your jawbone and determine the optimal placement for the implants.
  • Implant placement: The implant placement procedure involves surgically placing the implants into the jawbone. This is typically done under local anesthesia and may involve making a small incision in the gums to access the bone. Once the implants are in place, a healing period of several months is required to allow the implants to fuse with the bone.
  • Restoration: After the healing period is complete, the final step in implantology treatment is to restore the implants with replacement teeth. This may involve attaching abutments to the implants, which connect the implants and the replacement teeth.

Implantology treatment is a highly specialized procedure that requires expertise and experience. It is important to choose a dentist or implant specialist who is qualified and experienced in implant placement and restoration to ensure the best possible outcome.




There are several types of dental implants available, each with its own benefits and considerations. The most commonly used dental implants include:

  • Endosteal implants
  • Subperiosteal implants
  • Zygomatic implants
  • All-on-4 implants


Q.1 What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are typically made of a biocompatible material, such as titanium or a titanium alloy.

Q.2 How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for many years, and in some cases, even a lifetime.

Q.3 Does getting dental implants hurt?

The implant placement procedure is typically done under local anesthesia, which can help to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, patients may experience some mild discomfort or swelling, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Q.4 Are dental implants expensive?

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on a number of factors, including the number of implants needed, the type of implant used, and the location of the dental practice. However, in many cases, dental implants can be a cost-effective long-term solution to tooth loss.

Q.5 Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants may be a good option for patients who are missing one or more teeth and have a healthy jawbone. However, each patient’s individual needs and circumstances are different, so it is important to consult with a dentist or implant specialist to determine if dental implants are the best option for you.
