Implant Dentistry

Million of adults suffer with tooth loss; it can be unattractive, embarrassing and painful. Tooth loss can cause various problems such as difficulty eating, ill-fitting dentures and less of an active life style. Missing teeth can vastly affect ones confidence and self-esteem.

Dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which is placed into the jawbone. It is used to support one or more teeth. In practice, both the teeth and their supporting titanium root are known as “implants”. It is a well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. 90% of modern dental implants last for at least 15 years.



Dental implants can replace one, several or all of your teeth! They are fixed into place so they will not move, making it easier to eat and speak. Dental implants allow you to eat whatever you want and look feeling and function like natural teeth. With a 95% success rate, dental implants are the most reliable solution that is the closest thing to your natural teeth!


You should consider implants when:
  • You have one or more missing teeth
  • Teeth that are decayed need extracting
  • Teeth are damaged or broken
  • Severe gum disease where teeth need extracting
  • You wear dentures, have crowns or fixed bridges


Parts of dental implant

Screw: a titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone. Titanium is a metal which compatible with organs together with new generated the bone tissue

Abutment: is a ceramic or titanium made which joint with screw and crown 
Crown: when abutment is in place, crown is placed on the top of implant.

Do dental implants hurt?

Placing the dental implants requires a small operation, carried out under local anesthetic or sedation. You will not feel any pain at the time, but you may feel some discomfort during the week following the surgery. The implant placement surgery usually only takes a short time and after all procedures we provide pain relief for any discomfort or swelling. Just like your natural teeth, you should brush after every meal.

Astra Tech Implant System™

To design a successful implant system, one needs not only a great deal of knowledge about biology and mechanics, but also an understanding of what happens when the two interact. Early on in the development of the Astra Tech Implant System™, we realized the value of a holistic approach. That is why our system is uniquely based not only on a biological but also a biomechanical approach. When introducing the OsseoSpeed™ surface with a unique nanoscale topography, we took this to the next level by incorporating biochemistry.

Astra Tech BioManagement Complex™

Just as in nature, a successful existence cannot be determined by one single element alone. The terms biomechanics and biochemistry are no longer sufficient as there must be several interdependent features working together. This interaction is what we call the Astra Tech BioManagement Complex™.

The establishment and maintenance of a soft tissue seal around the transmucosal part of an implant (i.e. the abutment) is vital for implant treatment success. The formation of the soft tissue barrier around the abutment is fundamentally a result of wound healing.

Thus, during healing a barrier epithelium will form adjacent to the abutment. Apical to this epithelium, a zone of connective tissue will form and attach to the titanium surface on the abutment to protect the underlying bone tissue. The barrier epithelium and the connective tissue–implant interface will consequently establish a certain biological width of the peri-implant mucosa. It is important that this process takes place undisturbed, without micromovements and micro-leakage in the abutmentimplant connection, for optimal healing and long-term result.

Nature itself takes care of the soft tissue sculpturing, as long as it is provided with the right conditions, maintained marginal bone levels and healthy soft tissue. With the Astra Tech Implant System you can count on optimal soft and hard tissues.

Initial bone healing and long-term maintained marginal bone levels are affected by the implant design and surface properties. Optimal biomechanical and biochemical stimuli from the implant surface are of the utmost importance for the bone healing process.

The long-term marginal bone maintenance level is primarily dependent on biomechanical stimulation from the implant, particularly around the implant neck. This means that a successful clinical result, in both the short and long term, is related to the features of the implant.

Failing to control these factors causes marginal bone loss and problems such as black triangles between teeth and, in a worst case scenario, the implant might be lost. Infection or irritation of the soft tissue can also disturb the healing process and the long-term result. These problems might be caused by factors not related to the implant as such, but to a lack of proper maintenance and care by the patient or by his or her general health status. But it can also be caused by micro-leakage and micro-movements due to a less favorable implant design. Our way of safeguarding a reliable, predictable and esthetic short- and long-term result, is with  the Astra Tech BioManagement Complex™

This is a unique combination of the following features: OsseoSpeed™, MicroThread™, Conical Seal Design™, Connective Contour™.

The unique soft tissue seal on the abutment level, together with biomechanical interactions with the bone around the implant neck, ensure optimal conditions for the bone and soft tissue. The load distribution and the lack of micromovements and micro-leakage between implant components are the main reasons for maintained healthy peri-implant tissues and preserved marginal bone levels.
