Frequently asked questions
In our 20 years of experience, we have been able to identify the most common questions and concerns of patients.
If your question is not listed below, feel free to contact our support team, who will be happy to answer.
What are the costs of a dental implant?
The costs of treatment depend on the complexity of the case, namely the number of dental implants required and the volume of bone available. After examination, the surgeon proposes several options for the treatment plan.
The cost of treatment can only be estimated correctly after consulting the surgeon.
Insufficient bone volume?
The success of a dental implant depends primarily on the amount and quality of bone in the missing tooth area. Bone tissue insufficiency is a problem faced by a large number of patients.
However, this deficiency can be compensated by sinus lifting, guided bone regeneration or splitting of the edentulous ridge.
How to choose the type of dental implants?
Each manufacturer has its advantages. Some countries, such as Switzerland and Germany, are known for high quality products, others for affordable prices.
Once you have chosen the type of implant, the prosthetic components (healing abutment and prosthetic abutment) will be from the same manufacturer, respectively the prices will correspond to the chosen segment.
What are the risks of implantation?
Dental implant treatment is a modern and effective method. However, the resistance of implants over time depends on oral hygiene after treatment and may be affected by pre-existing medical conditions.
A consultation is enough to determine if this method is right for you.
Is the surgery painful?Implants are inserted under local anesthesia, to avoid discomfort during surgery. Recovery takes about 7 days.
Recommendations after implant insertion (or any other surgery):
- Avoid rinsing your mouth, hot food and smoking for 24 hours after surgery.
- Applying a cold compress can prevent postoperative edema.
- Take your medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
When do you contact your doctor ?Call your doctor if you feel a throbbing or numb pain 12 hours after the operation or the bleeding does not stop.
How long is the healing period?
The healing period usually lasts up to half a year, but varies depending on the bone density and primary stability of the implant.
For aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a temporary crown during this period.
How is the crown attached to the implant?
Crowns can be fixed to implants by cementation or threading. Both methods are good, only they have special indications.
In order to obtain the most aesthetic result, cementation is preferred. In cases where it is necessary to retain the possibility of subsequent removal of the crown, threading is used.
What are the possible complications of prosthesis on dental implants?Over time, there may be several complications related to the maintenance of dentures on dental implants. The most common refer to fracture of the dental ceramic or composite. Ceramic is a material that responds well to repeated friction actions, but does not withstand direct blows. Another problem is related to the threading elements with which the implant is fixed, which in time "get tired" and can lose their previous stability. The ability to fix, repair or change each element of the denture separately is the main advantage of this prosthetic solution.
