Dentistry has taken a revolution since the existence of dental implants. What is a dental implant? Well in simple words, it is a titanium screw that is placed into the gums to replace a missing tooth in the mouth. Implants are the closest replica to having your natural teeth again. It is 10 times stronger as compared to the strength of a single tooth, while it is safe and provides support to the surrounding bone and gum structure.
It works by osteointergrating with the bone, forming a very strong bond that provides good tensile strength as well as high compressive strength. These features are the reason why dental implants are tough and reliable. Most importantly, they are biocompatible!
We only believe in using the best quality implants in the market. Our implants bare a Swiss trademark and all of its components are fully imported. Each implant bares a serial number and have been certified. The crowns fitted onto the implants are fabricated from Germany, and hand finished locally by our German Master technician.

Many of us are unaware of the fact that missing teeth can lead to further problems with the gums and teeth. What we do know is that it gets hard to chew food once a tooth is extracted. But what we don’t realize is that a missing tooth could result in the upper opposing tooth to grow into its space, while the side neighboring teeth will eventually tilt towards the empty lot of the missing tooth, creating a gap between teeth.
