Implant-supported prosthesis is a very modern dental procedure that help patients who have lost one or more teeth to bring back their quality of life. Implant-supported prosthesis is provided after implantation of one or more teeth when the dental implants have completely healed. The practitioner then takes the impressions of the teeth which then are used in a laboratory by dental technicians to make individual dental crowns.

Most commonly used are metal or zirconia crowns, or implant-supported dentures. Metal crowns are strong and durable and provide relatively good aesthetics at reasonable price, whereas zirconia is translucent similarly like natural human teeth providing extremely natural results.

Taking into account the number and site of the implants placed, different dental crowns or dentures can be used. Based on crown structures, implant-supported dental prosthesis can be divided into three cases: individual tooth, several lost teeth in a row, or edentulous jaw.

Prosthesis is most often performed under local anaesthesia, which is sufficient to prevent pain. For patients with dental anxiety or phobia, extremely sensitive teeth or uncontrollable nausea reflex, procedures can be performed using sedation – partial short-term narcosis which helps reducing anxiety, discomfort, and pain during certain procedures.
