What is an implant?
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
The implants are tiny titanium posts, which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Take the first step. Get the facts about dental implants. See Dr Bayat-Makou today, with his extensive training and expertise, he can determine if dental implants are right for you.
Why get implants?
Thanks to you natural teeth’s roots, your jaws retain their solidity and strength.

When you lose teeth, the jawbone recedes, gradually leading to the following problems:
loss of chewing efficiency, which could impair the absorption of the nutrients required for a healthy body;
additional stress on the remaining teeth, which can lead to the displacement of the surrounding teeth, and their eventual loss;
premature facial aging, appearance of wrinkles around the lips, and loss of stability of prosthesis.

Because implants act in the same way as natural teeth, their use can stabilize, or even completely avoid these problems.
The benefits of implants
Studies have shown that, thanks to continuous research on dental implants, operating procedures, and prosthetics, the success rate of such treatments is better than 90%. This is the best success rate of all dental restoration procedures. We can therefore present dental implants as a reliable, long-term solution.
Dr Bayat-Makou’s professional training is your guarantee of the best possible quality of life. Dental implant technology ensures that this is not an empty promise.
After thirty (30) years of clinical use, dental implants offer many different benefits.
- they allow the renewal of both the comfort and esthetics of natural teeth;
- they are a fixed, permanent replacement for missing teeth;
- they stimulate bone health;
- they allow you to retain your facial beauty, and maintain your jaws’ bone mass;
- they do not cover your palate, allowing you to completely retain your sense of taste;
- they enhance the stability and retentiveness of dental prosthesis (dentures);
- they facilitate the chewing and digestion of food;
- they ensure a better quality of life;
- they promote greater self-confidence and self-esteem;
- they do not decay.
Missing one, or a number of teeth?
Based on an in-depth analysis performed by Dr Bayat-Makou and his team, the replacement of a missing tooth by an implant can be a wise choice.
Previously, fixed bridgework was the only solution available, and required the removal of a significant number of teeth. Dental implants now allow us to replace one or many missing teeth without touching any surrounding teeth.
Are your prostheses uncomfortable?
Implants can both support and stabilize a dental prosthesis. Both the prosthesis and your facial muscles will retain their tone. You will laugh and eat with renewed pleasure!
Restore your quality of life and enhance your self-confidence! Speak, eat, and laugh with ease and confidence.

Are dental implants a generalized solution?
You can receive dental implants as soon as you reach adulthood. Generally speaking, there is no age limit. However, general health, the location of the implant, and the patient’s expectations must first be evaluated.
That is why Dr Bayat-Makou recommends a preliminary examination.
What can I expect?
Following the examination of your teeth and the taking of X-rays, Dr Bayat-Makou will propose a treatment plan and alternative solutions. You will receive an estimate of costs, and a clear explanation of the complete treatment.
The overall goal is to make you quickly forget the loss of your teeth thanks to the recovery of a healthy, natural smile. In short, your quality of life will improve significantly, whether for chewing, speaking or smiling.
How do I care for my implants?
As is the case for natural teeth, dental implants require regular brushing and flossing in order to eliminate the accumulation of dental plaque.
A regular visit to your dentist is also an excellent way of ensuring the health and longevity of your dental implants.
