Dental Implants
Treatment

Dental implants have been used in dentistry since 1980. Nowadays, they have come a long way in terms of efficiency, biological approach, long term results and less complications. Our implantology specialists have visited numerous courses and practice the highest and up-to-date level of treatment with dental implants. The dental implants are screws, which are made of titanium. This is a biocompatible metal, which even people with metal allergies can have in their mouth. It is meant to replace the root of the missing tooth. When several teeth are missing, more than one implant can be placed. Then crowns, bridges or dentures are put on the implant/implants to replace the crowns of the missing teeth. The implants through their process of ossteointegration create similar connections with the bone and gum tissue with the natural teeth.

Dental implants have many advantages- you can read more about them in the section Dental bridges vs implants.

If you visit our Clinic for a dental implants consultation, we will make an x-ray, 3D and digital scanning. We will ask you about your medical history. Our specialist in implantology will give you advices about what is the best treatment plan for you, are implants the best choice in your clinical case, how many implants would you need, what type of implants, will bone grafting or sinus lifting be needed. A surgery appointment will be made. You will be prescribed some medicines a few days before the surgery. We will also make a dental cleaning and polishing before the operation itself, to decrease the bacterial number in the mouth. Several implants can be placed during one surgery.

We will make careful planning of the surgery and create two types of guides- prosthetic and surgical with the help of your 3D and digital scan. We will have them printed in our lab and ready for your surgery. They will help to locate the implants really precisely in the exact place we have planned.

The procedure of placing a dental implant/s begins with anesthesia. It can also be done with IV sedation. A small flap is opened to reveal the bone tissue. Then, with a series of drills, the “bed” for the implant is made. Then the implant is screwed in the bed, and the wound is sutured. It is neither painful, nor scary procedure. Our patients say that the post-operative pain is lower that after an extraction.

The implant may need to stay under the gum tissue without any loading for 3 months, so that a process of ossteointegration takes place. Then, a temporary crown is made to shape the gum tissues in the most esthetic and biological way. 3 months later, the permanent crown is put. Another option is the immediate loading- the temporary crown is put after the operation.
