Dental implants look back on a 50-year-old history and have undergone a very large development. It provides a much better solution then removable dentures by fixing the restoration to the bone by a "screw", providing a more secure abutment and precise and natural mastication. It also eliminates some of the less well known problems such as migration and elongation of the teeth that occurs in the antagonist (the opposing tooth) when removing a tooth and results in weakening of that. This phenomenon can be best prevented by using dental implants since it does not affect the neighbouring teeth and makes the reconstruction of single or multiple missing teeth optimal.
At our clinic we use DIO and Straumann implant system.
Steps of an implantation procedure:
After an accurate consultation and diagnosis the patient is being anaesthetised by the dental surgeon. Then the gingiva is cut and elevated at the desired area. The surgeon drills the nest of the future implant and then drives the artificial root-shaped screw into the bone with 4-5 turns. These implants are made of titanium which the body can adopt easily with no allergic reactions. The surgical phase is over by reuniting the tissues with sutures and then tamponating the wound. This procedure usually takes about 30 minutes.
It is of utmost importance that the patient maintains good oral hygiene in the following 7-10 days until the sutures are being removed. Keeping the site of surgery clean is necessity for optimal wound healing and bone regeneration. Antibiotic support, pain killers and chilling are usually needed and help in recovery.
After 3 months during which new bone webs around the titanium root, a new stabile and naturally looking crown is fabricated on it.
With this method 98% of the screws stay fix immediately. On that we take price-back-guarantee! We do not recommend this type of treatment for patients with cardiovascular or diabetic disease.
