Couple Sourire


A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw inserted into the jawbone in place of the missing root. After the surrounding bone has healed around the implant, a replacement tooth is attached to the top of the dental implant. This new tooth offers exactly the same appearance, the same feeling, the same functions and masticatory force as the natural tooth which it replaces.


Dental implants are an aesthetic, safe and medically proven alternative to traditional crowns , bridges and dentures . Restorations using dental implants look more like natural teeth, which is why they offer a much higher level of comfort, security and confidence than traditional treatments.

There are several advantages to placing a dental implant. They protect your anatomy by preventing the deterioration of the jaw, thus maintaining the natural shape of the face. They help maintain the health of your remaining teeth. In the long term, dental implants are a better alternative to bridges because they eliminate the need to grind down healthy teeth to replace one or more adjacent teeth.  Natural teeth are therefore no longer at risk . They are also safe and durable, being firmly fixed, dental implants present no risk of deviation or movement. So you can regain your beautiful, natural-looking smile and speak with confidence.

Certain treatments may be necessary before your dental implant is placed for certain reasons. If your tooth has been out of your mouth for some time, you may need bone grafting or sinus lift treatment. It all depends on your bone density. Since the natural tooth is rooted in the bone, the loss of it creates an empty socket. No longer being stimulated, the bone resorbs and becomes deformed. It is therefore impossible to place an implant if the bone loss is too great. The bone graft is used to create a solid location for the placement of your dental implant, without it the dental implant could be unstable, it will tend to move and even fall.

Bone grafting treatment in case of extraction consists of the insertion of bone tissue into the socket of the tooth and it is stabilized with the help of a protective covering. In case the tooth has been missing for longer, there will be an increase in the alveolar ridge. This process of bone grafting is done by placing bone on the already existing bone. In both cases, he will have a healing period of around 5 months before he can install your dental implant.

The loss of a posterior tooth located below the sinus may also require treatment in anticipation of the placement of your dental implant. When a tooth in the upper jaw is missing, the bone in that region resorbs and loses volume. Your sinuses will then occupy the empty space. Sinus lift is then necessary to create space for the bone graft. A healing period is also required after this treatment before your dental implant is placed.

The dental implant, ideal for replacing one or even several teeth!


If you have lost a single tooth, and are currently using a removable partial denture, an implant crown may be a better solution.  Single artificial teeth look so natural that usually, alone the patient and his dentist see the difference. This option gives you the exact same look, feel and functions as the natural tooth. The crown on dental implant allows biting with more security and more force than with a removable prosthesis, restores confidence and improves appearance.


If you have lost several teeth, the installation of a bridge on implants is ideal. Unlike traditional bridges or removable partial dentures, which can slip, loosen and cause irritation, a bridge on dental implants remains secure and resistant, and does not cause problems to adjacent teeth.  The bridges on dental implants are so comfortable and natural that the patient has the feeling of having regained his original dentition. The implant fixed bridge offers the exact same look, feel and function as natural teeth. It is securely attached to dental implants and poses no risk to adjacent teeth.


If your entire lower and/or upper jaw is toothless, and if you currently use a complete removable prosthesis, a prosthesis on dental implants may be the ideal solution for you.  Unlike complete removable dentures, which have many problems (poor fit, gum irritation and pain from exposed nerves), bridges or dentures on dental implants virtually eliminate slippage and movement: it's the end of the pain, discomfort and concerns. The prosthesis on implant improves comfort and stability. You will be able to laugh and talk with confidence again and devour your favorite dishes to your heart's content.

After the placement of your dental implant, there will be a healing period with follow-up appointments with your dentist. It is possible to install a temporary crown or a rigid splint adjusted with a prefabricated tooth while awaiting the placement of your crown, bridge or final prosthesis on an implant. It is important to continue to maintain good hygiene thereafter as with a natural tooth. Cleaning examination follow-ups must be done on a regular basis. The hygienist will be able to thoroughly clean your dental implant using a piezon designed specifically to thoroughly clean around the neck of the implant. Just like a natural tooth if there is poor maintenance of your implant, tartar buildup followed by bone loss can affect mobility and even lead to the loss of your implant(s).
