Dental implants from well-known brands – quality guarantee

What are dental implants?

Implants are the closest equivalent to the natural teeth. Implants imitate tooth roots. The abutment is placed on the root. The abutment imitates tooth crown ready for placing the tooth “cover” – crown.

How does the implantation procedure look like?

If you opt for the therapy including implantation, the first step is 3D X-ray which gives us tridimensional image of your jawbone (height, width, length, density, and position of important anatomic structures such as nerves and sinuses).

The surgeon analyses the 3D image, concludes the condition of your bone and makes computer measurements in order to determine if you are a candidate for implants, and if you are, which type of work would be most suitable in your case. When you agree with your surgeon on the type of work, the choice of implant size is made, in accordance with the dimension of your jaw.

After the agreement with your surgeon, we do the implantation on the same or following day.

The very procedure is simple and quick, and most importantly, painless. Upon anesthetizing relevant region, a small cut is made on the gum. The implant is positioned through the cut. Afterwards, the cut is stitched.

Does implantation hurt?

The intervention is routine, done with local anesthetics. Our patients handle it very well. Before the procedure, every patient receives appropriate medicamentous therapy, so the therapy goes without stress whatsoever.

How long does the implantation last?

The duration of the implantation is determined by the number of implants. It takes 15 to 20 minutes for one implant. Additional surgical procedures such as augmentation, sinus lift, or PRF regenerative therapy can prolong the intervention time.

Implantation immediately after tooth extraction (immediate implantation)

In a great number of cases, it is possible to do the implantation in the place of extracted tooth immediately after the extraction, with the addition of artificial bone. To even consider implant implantation immediately after extraction, the tooth must not be under inflammation because the infection would almost undoubtedly lead to implant rejection, which is certainly one of unwanted situations in implantology.

Recovery after implantation

Several days after the intervention, solid food should be avoided as well as smoking if you are a smoker. External cold compress will reduce the swelling which normally occurs after intervention. Mouth hygiene is crucial in order to lessen the possibility of infection.

After the implantation, a period of time has to pass, usually three months, for the implant to coalesce with the bone. After the period, it is possible to place crowns or bridges on the implant.
