The dental implant is a titanium component, usually in the form of a screw, that serves as a replacement for the missing root of a natural tooth.
When is a dental implant required?
Generally, any person that has one missing tooth or more can have a dental implant.
The main limitations are:
- the quality and quantity of the surrounding bone
- the position of the maxillary sinus and of the inferior alveolar nerve
- causes that have to do with the general health of the body
Dental radiography and some special analyses are required before placing the dental implants.
How much does the procedure take?
The procedure takes approximately one hour, maybe longer if more implants are needed.
How much does the recovery take?
The so-called osseointegration period takes from 3 to 6 months and then the dental abutment is attached.
It is worth mentioning that each case is unique and this is why it is difficult to estimate how much time is required for the entire procedure.
The teeth supported by implants will look and function like natural teeth.
Dental prostheses, especially those fixed with implants, enhance the patient’s quality of life considerably.

- Alcohol addiction

- Major arterial hypertension

- Patients who were irradiated

How much does a dental implant cost in Chișinău?
Costs for dental implants differ for 2 main reasons: firstly, because there is a wide range of providers who use different materials and technologies, and secondly, each client requires a different number of procedures and analyses until the actual implant is attached.
The price for the same implant can differ from one patient to another.
Dental implants require the same kind of care and dental hygiene as natural teeth, including (proper) brushing – using toothpaste and also using a particular kind of dental floss, which is perfect for cleaning implants.
Regular dental checkups are equally important.
A month after the prosthetic attachment, a checkup is required in order to evaluate the state of the tissue and the implant. Then, periodic checkups at the dentist will be performed every 6 months.
