DENTAL IMPLANTS

Why Come to Us for Implants?

The implants we currently use are last generation implants, chosen after a long experience with different systems.

The surfaces of the implants are specially treated so that any ionogenic, electric, magnetic, and thermal transfer towards the living tissues is stopped, thus increasing adherence and eliminating any possible non-integration. The majority of current systems do not have this special treatment of the surfaces, and in time this can lead to micro necrosis at the level of the junction between bone and implant, and consequently to losing the implant.

When we are asked “For how long are your implants guaranteed?”, we like to answer that our dental implants treatment is made to last a lifetime, if the patient abides by the recommendations given after the surgical procedure, takes proper care, and comes to follow up on a regular basis.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that serves as a post for replacing a missing tooth. The implant is inserted in the upper or lower jaw through a surgical procedure. A waiting period follows, during which the implant is secured by being integrated into the bone (the development of links between bone and implant) so that the implant can serve as support for a crown, or for fixed/mobile partial/total dentures. Dental implants can replace one or more teeth. Dentures that have implants as support look more like natural teeth and they take over the function of the missing tooth. Implant treatment represents an option for restoration with a long clinical history. The dental implants maintain the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.

Who can benefit from dental implants?

Any person who has one or more missing teeth, due to accidents, disease or complications of dental decay, can benefit from implant treatment. If one or several teeth are missing, dentures or denture restoration on implants can replace the missing teeth. Sometimes senior patients may think that their ageprevents them from benefiting from dental implants. In implant treatment, health is a determinant factor, not age. It is considered that if a patient is healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, then that patient is healthy enough to have an implant. Your medical doctor can determine if you can benefit from an implant by considering your personal medical history, general and dental.

Questions and Answers about Dental Implants

Is the procedure painful?   [...]

Application of implants is done under local anesthesia and you will not feel any pain during this time. The area of the intervention can become swollen for a few days after the intervention and the medium intensity of pain can be controlled with mild analgesics.

How much does it cost?   [...]

Having a dental implant is an investment for the future and for the quality of your life. The new teeth will create the same sensation as your natural teeth, which is an extraordinary fact. This is a treatment that will reduce your future costs with dental care.

Will they feel as my own teeth?   [...]

Yes! Implants are fixed in the bone and act as your own teeth when you eat, talk or laugh. Most of the patients do not sense any difference between their natural teeth and the new teeth. Furthermore, the sensation of force when chewing is greater and dental pain no longer exists.

Will the new teeth look like my other teeth?   [...]

Yes! Normally, they resemble your natural teeth so much, only the dentist can see the difference!

Can I keep my other teeth?   [...]

Yes, of course! Implants allow us to replace missing teeth without touching the healthy teeth. Contrary to the case of classical bridges and partial dentures, the nearby teeth do not have to be affected at all.

Is age a problem?   [...]

Normally, there are no problems regarding age. However, if you are under 18, we have to make sure that growth has ended before taking into consideration the possibility of an implant.

What are the risks involved?   [...]

Many clinical studies regarding treatment with dental implants have shown that long term results are positive. The way implants have been conceived and their surface treated ensures good resistance and maintenance of the restoration. The screw of the implant post contributes to the local sustenance of the implant and of the bone volume. All these contribute to the conservation of the contour of the tissues (gum tissue) and give a natural look.

Why are implants made of titanium?   [...]

Titanium is a bio-compatible material, so that the bone succeeds to integrate it in its structure by bone integration.

How many visits are necessary for this type of treatment?   [...]

This depends on your teeth and the type of treatment most adequate to your case. For some situations only one surgical intervention is needed, for other cases the surgical intervention needs to be done in two steps.The initial consultation, the surgical procedure, the post-surgery control, the dentures steps, and the final checkup total a number of 6-8 visits until finalizing the treatment.

»Hide text«

Can the intervention be done under general anesthesia?   [...]

General anesthesia is not necessary. Local anesthesia associated with a sedative is sufficient. There is the possibility of IV profound sedation if you prefer, which gives you a state of peace and well-being. Profound sedation is preferred if a bone graft is necessary or a more labor intensive intervention is needed, thus offering peace both to the patient and the surgeon and shortening the rehabilitation period due to the minimization of “surgical trauma”. Ask your doctor about this.

Will my teeth be missing during treatment?   [...]

No, temporary crowns and dentures can be done for this period.

»Hide text«

How do I take care of my new teeth?   [...]

For maintaining good results, brushing the same as you do for your natural teeth is sufficient, as well as using other forms of dental hygiene such as mouth wash and dental floss. Your dentist will explain how to use these.

»Hide text«

How many sick days will I need?   [...]

It is not abnormal to have post-surgicaledema or ecchymosis after implantation. Most patients resume work 2 -3 days after the intervention, others even on the second day of the intervention if work does not require physical activity and if taking into account the postsurgical recommendations explained and handed out in writing by your dentist after each intervention.

»Hide text«

Should I stop smoking?   [...]

Smoke cessation is highly recommended. Smoking slows down the healing process and negatively affects long-term prognosis.

Can drinking coffee, tea or wine spoil or color my new teeth?   [...]

The porcelain crowns used for implants are less affected by these natural coloring substances.
