“Trefoil system” – what is it?
“Trefoil“ is a dental implantation method designed to restore a patient’s lower jaw. During the procedure, 3 implants get attached to the lower jaw. If the procedure is successful, these implants receive their permanent prostheses on the same day.
The procedure is extremely accurate as it uses a prefabricated structure with a unique locking mechanism. Using this mechanism, it is possible to establish the ideal position of the thread of the implants in accordance with the jaw.
“Trefoil” implantation restores lost teeth, restores occlusal strength, stability and a sense of security. Soon the patient can smile, laugh, and chew hard food without any discomfort.
Benefits of the “Trefoil” system
By using this advanced method you can restore the lower jaw in 1-2 days, so soon you will be able to enjoy a new smile without any discomfort. Besides, “Trefoil” implantation ensures extremely strong and long-lasting fixation of artificial teeth on implants.

The course of “Trefoil” system
