Dental implants represent long term alternative for missing teeth. Teeth are really strong and durable when healthy. They don’t only chew through all of the hard and crispy foods, they also hold the structure of our jaw and they are there to stay for the rest of our lives. But, in case you are an adult, you are bound to lose at least one tooth during your life and you need something to make up for it. Why it’s important that you make up for the lost tooth? – you can read about it in our blog IS it necessary to make up for one lost tooth? Maybe you are scared that dental implants can’t offer you the same strength and durability as your natural tooth, but the advanced technology of today actually allows you to replace the lost tooth with an implant of same strength.
Of course, it is very important which dental implants your dentist uses. Don’t fall for something cheap with a promise of high quality because the two don’t really go together. You can read about the prices and implant quality here. At the Markov Dental Clinic, our dentist dr sci. med. Borislav Markov uses only the best dental implants made by German “Ankylos” and Swiss “Nobel Biocare”.
Dental implants are actually pillars made out of titanium which are inserted into bone where the tooth used to be. Titanium is very durable, versatile and safe material that merges with jawbones in a few months. This forms an alternative root and with good care stays perfectly in place for the rest of the life.
Considering your dental implants have to connect with the jaw, the strength of your jaw can impact the implantation performance. That’s why bone reconstruction is important before dental implants are placed if the jaw is weak. Dental implants can last your whole life of they are installed right, protected and taken care of. Of course, they have to be high quality as well. Having in mind that implants help keep the natural face shape and smile it is easier to speak, chew and look completely natural while doing so.
The process of implantation should only be done by highly trained professional who is a certified implantologist. Dr sci. med. Borislav Markov is a certified implantologist with over a decade of experience, even in the extreme cases when the whole jaw needed reconstruction because of a tumour.

Nobel Biocare is a company which is said to be the pioneer of the dental implants. Their story begun in the late 1952. when the company’s founder, back then a young scientist, Per-Ingvar Brånemark was studying the bloodstream of rabbits and for that reason he put a titanium part inside a rabbits bone for research purposes. Experiment was successful but when he wanted to take the implant out he noticed it had completely merged with bones around it. He then first used the term “osseointegration” for this phenomenon and started thinking about using it on humans unlike other scientists which noticed this before him. In 1965. he used the titanium implants on a human, with positive results. In 1978. Swedish authorities approved the use of dental implants on humans, and in 1981. the company Bofos Nobelpharma was founded, which is called Nobel Biocare today. The headquarters have been moved in the meantime from Sweden to Switzerland, but company was still the representative for dental inovations.
Designing for life. Learning for life. Partnering for life.
As pioneers of implantology, their role was of historical importance but also the future of inovations in dentistry from industrial production of implants to finding a way to fix the problem of missing teeth. Nobel Biocare is continuously working on improving teeth implants which they design so that the patients will have the best care. Nobel Biocare has it’s own 3D diagnostics, 3D planning and operation.
NobelParallel CC is a new type of implant that comes from this manufacturer. The idea that lead the Nobel Biocare researchers was making an implant whose installation will be very quick and efficient, to shorten the time between the installation and wearing a functional dental cap on that implant. Also, this type of implant enables solid implantation even to the older patients who have more fragile bones. NobelParalller Conical Connection as it’s key advantage has stability from the first contact with the jaw.
Platform Switching technology is designed in a way so that the abutment is distanced from the bone. After putting pressure on dental caps during chewing there is a small amount of movement from the abutment in at the base of the implant. This kind of design was created to make bone loss smaller overtime, which is achieved by moving abutment from the bone, compared to older systems where implant – abutment connection is straight and can lead to a bigger bone loss around the implant.
NobelActive enables large amount of stability and can be installed even in place of recently removed tooth. This implant allows immediate pressure. They are recommended for the aesthetic zone as their circumference is 3mm which makes them easy to be implanted in small spaces. Main characteristic of this type of implant is their oxidated surface “TiUnite” with grooves which maintain a high amount of stability and quick recovery.
