What are dental implants?

The implant is an artificial dental root made from titanium, which is implanted into the jaw through a surgical operation and which keeps the positioned artificial tooth or teeth firm. The dentures and bridges fixed by the implants do not move in the mouth which is an important advantage during eating and speech. This safe fitting gives a more natural feeling.

How long is the lifespan of the dental implants?

According to the place of the implant and the guest’s mouth hygiene, the lifespan of the implants is up to 10-20 years.

What are dental implants made of?

Nowadays, dental implants are made of titanium, a metal whose special attributes make it possible to be used to such purposes
- it does not corrode,
- it resists acids and other materials,
- it is not effected by magnetism,
- it is really strong compared to its weight.

This material has been examined for many years. The implants used nowadays are tissue-friendly, they do not cause any damage and the tissues go on well with them.

Who performs the implantation?

Several dental specialists may treat you if you get an implant.
A dental surgeon inserts the implant. The prosthetic specialist or the general dentist prepares crowns, bridges or dental prosthesis.
The surgeon is in control of the team and they decide together about the type, number and place of the implant.

Who can get an implant?

The guest is ready for an implantation if he or she is in good health, has good mouth hygiene and possesses sufficient bone substance.
During the preliminary examinations the therapist informs the guest about treatment and surgery procedures and the planning of prosthetic dentistry.

What is bone build-up?

 

csont1To determine if you have sufficient bone substance we need preliminary examinations. If you do not have sufficient or healthy bone substance than bone replacement is needed to make the implantation successful.

 

csont2The bone replacement and the implantation may happen simultaneously, but your specialist can decide if the bone build-up should be performed first and then you have to wait the recovery time until the implant is inserted. In this case 4-6 months will be needed for the recovery before the implant can be inserted. During the recovery time you can also wear your dental prosthesis or bridge without any problem.

Bone replacement
Bone replacement is deemed necessary in cases when there is no available bone with an adequate thickness to properly support the implant.
The material used in the bone transplantation process can either be the patient’s own bone material retrieved by way of autotransplant, or an artificial bone-replacement material.
The procedure can be conducted both on the upper and the lower jaw.

Is implantation painful?

Our guests were surprised to experience so little pain during the process of implantation.
Dental surgeons, implantologists with years of experience, perform the intervention and they perform local anesthesia, too. The intervention is only a small operation after which you may feel a little uncomfortable for a week during the stitching and the recovery process.
