Implantation is the technologically most advanced method of the missing teeth treatment.  It requires the dentist to have top qualifications and work with utter accuracy and precision, and possess broadly construed knowledge of the art.  In particular, the dentist must have mastered individual surgical procedures fundamental for proper insertion of an implant, and the prosthetic procedures to equip the patient with new teeth permanently integrated with the bone.

Implant treatment is gaining in popularity among the Polish patients.  The increased interest in this particular method of missing teeth treatment stems from its virtually 100% surgical effectiveness, both in the case of individual teeth missing, and total toothlessness, particularly of the mandible.

Most potential patients do not, however, have sufficient information to decide about taking up the implant treatment.  This is due to the relatively low supply of implant services, primarily in effect of the unsubstantiated belief prevailing among dentists about the difficulty of the implant treatment process itself, and the opportunities to acquire the necessary qualifications.  Wishing to disperse the apprehension, the VIVADENTAL INSTITUTE offers practical courses in implant treatment, giving future implantologists the knowledge and skills enabling them to treat their patients unsupervised.
