What Is Periodontology?
Periodontology is an entire branch of dentistry dedicated to studying the gums and bone surrounding the teeth; researching new techniques for treating periodontal diseases; saving teeth; and replacing lost teeth with dental implants.
What is Implantology?
Implantology is the insertion of replacement teeth for individuals with missing teeth and gaps in their smile. The procedure involves creating an artificial tooth that resembles the person's own lost tooth. An artificial tooth root is inserted into the jaw bone and subsequently, the artificial tooth is attached to the root. Oftentimes, bone regeneration may be needed prior to dental implantation in order to create a better bony foundation to securely anchor the implanted root. Dental implants are a natural-looking alternative to traditional bridgework. Furthermore, since they are firmly embedded in the jaw bone, they provide a chewing and biting surface which is almost as secure as the natural teeth. Please consult us for more information.
