Dental implant Poland is a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Just like tooth roots, dental implants are inserted and secured in the jawbone at a lost tooth position and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures. Teeth implants are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible – that means it is not rejected by the body. While dental implants can be very expensive, you should consider undertaking the procedure abroad. You can get cheap and affordable dental implants in Poland, installed by the best dentists. Dental implants procedure in Poland is divided into 2 stages. First stage lasts 2-3 days, the patient needs to come to our clinic for a personal consultation, while the consultation our implantologist will provide patient with teeth check up and the CT scan. During the next visit, implants will be installed. After the implantation procedure gums and bone need to heal, which lasts from 3 to 6 months.

A good candidate should have healthy gums and have enough bone to anchor the implants in the jaw. However people who lost the bone in their jaw can still get implants, after a special procedure of rebuilding the bone structure – adding bone graft. A good candidate should also make a commitment to taking very good care of the implanted teeth and surrounding gums.
