Dental implantology is a set of surgical techniques aiming at the functional rehabilitation of a patient’s teeth using dental implants – i.e. metal elements surgically inserted in the mandibular or maxillary bone, or above them, but under the gum.

These elements are fitted with connectors to fasten them to fixed or removable prosthesis, to enable ease of chewing. Such implants can have different shapes, they can be inserted in different positions, with different techniques, then connected to prosthesis at different times.
