What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • They represent an adequate replacement for a lost tooth.
  • They are made of highly biocompatible materials, are biologically neutral and are perfectly accepted by the human body.

  • They restore functionality.
  • They create a remarkable aesthetic smile.
  • Neighboring teeth are not compromised by implants.
  • The success rate is very high – over 97%.

Is it a painful procedure?

Detailed diagnostic evaluation

Before the procedure, the patient undergoes a detailed diagnostic evaluation and if there is a suspect of infectious disease, laboratory tests are also performed.

Implant placement procedure

The treatment undergoes in two phases. In the first phase, the implant is placed in the jaw and after the integration period (4-6 months), the abutment and the dental crown are fixed on the implant.

Local anesthesia

The procedure is completely painless and is done with application of local anesthesia. If the patient has a pathological fear or his health is compromised, the procedure can also be performed under sedation.

Computer guided implantology

In implantology, computer-guided technology can be applied, which, thanks to the 3D technique, determines the perfect position for the implant, considering bone density, blood flow and jaw morphology.

How to behave after the procedure?

After an implantology procedure, the patient must maintain a meticulous and regular oral hygiene and show up for the regular check ups.

When proper oral hygiene is not performed regularly, the deposited plaque causes the formation of calculus, which can lead to premature gum retraction but also bone atrophy.
