Dental implants are the peak of dentistry technologies seeing as they do not cause any noise, slip or bone damage like dentures or fixed bridges does. This is because of the metal roots that fuse with your bone. Different from real natural teeth, dental implants are composed of materials that do not allow them to decay. Following the dental protocol, the option of dental implants could be compelling to you in the following situations:
Painless dental surgery is available at our clinic. Thanks to our advanced treatment methods we have heard patients say that they were surprised at how easy and painless the dental implant procedure is. Most patients do not experience any pain during the procedure and the effect after it is minor.
We understand that patients might be anxious about installing a dental implant. However, this is why we have come up with a patient-oriented treatment concept. The objective of the concept is to make the appointment as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Despite the benefits of dental implants being commonly known, many patients are still nervous before the operation. This mostly happens because people believe any rumor and disinformation they see on the internet. A quick search on the internet will show you pictures of dental implant surgeries which look quite scary if you do not know what is going on. But, do believe us when we say that there is no reason to worry because the procedure is not as painful as it looks.
A dental implant, for a patient with good bones and who does not need soft tissue surgery, has a little pain that only lasts 24 to 48 hours after the surgery, which means the pain can easily go away with painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol.
On the other hand, dental implants that do not require gum tissue lifting are painless. Of course, another factor in the number of pain experiences is the patient’s threshold for pain. It is a fact that installing an implant is a painless operation when correctly done.
There are several reasons why you should choose dental implants, however, we will present you with two, which could easily convince you to get them done:
When installing a dental implant we use minimally invasive surgery which will save tissue and is safe quick and painless, not to mention, precise. The recovery period is also short.
Our staff consists of professionals and specialists that know how to deal with patient’s fear and make them feel comfortable. We know that is it extremely important that we go through the procedure calmly and most importantly, carefully.
There is also no reason to be afraid of installing a dental implant. For the patient to feel safe and secure, we will tell them what is being done during the operation and what is coming next. Whenever things are getting uncomfortable, the patient can raise their hand or do any other noticeable action so we can give them a break.
Due to the surgical planning done in advance and the advanced implant techniques, the after-surgery discomfort after getting dental implants is close to none. Usually, the only discomfort is the numbing after the surgery.
When done correctly, the procedure is painless.
In case of after-effects, we will give the patient instructions and prescriptions. The after-effects disappear after a couple of days and they can be controlled with simple painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.
If you feel nervous or anxious about your dental implant surgery, do not hesitate to contact us and book a consultation so you can hear face-to-face about how easy and painless the installment of a dental implant can be also in your case.
Compared to conventional implants, dental implants are more successful. The success rate is in the range of 95 to 98 % in the last years. They require little maintenance and are treated like regular teeth. Dental implants last typically between 20 to 30 years and you can easily prolong their longevity by taking care of them.
As per any other dental intervention, you might have to undergo dental x-rays and there should be made models in compliance with your mouth and teeth.
Your surgeon and dentist should be informed of your medical history, including any medical condition or medication you are currently taking (supplements or any other drugs involved). A plan will be created for you depending on every piece of information and examination the dentist and the surgeon know.
Do note that before your surgery you will be given a local anesthetic, or injected. Subsequently, your surgeon will broach the surgical plan and progress with the preparation of your mouth. You might feel some of the vibrations while your surgeon drills little holes into your jaw and after he cuts the gingivitis to expose your bone. Please be acknowledged that this is in no way hurtful, the whole process is painless.
To make sure that there is no space and it is impossible for the post to move or wiggle, the holes should be fitted tight. Once the holes reach the required size, the titanium will be inserted in the inner side.
Before stitching your gingivitis back up, your surgeon/ dentist might ask you to undergo another x-ray so he can control if all the posts are placed correctly.
As with any surgical procedure, there is a period of recovery during which the tissue heals and the body adjusts to the implant. This recovery period depends on the patient, their endurance of pain, and their overall health.
Below you will find the steps that should be taken and the factors you should be aware of:
After a dental implant procedure, some discomfort is to be expected. However, every little discomfort can be relieved with painkillers.
There is no need for you to feel concerned or jittery about having your implants fitted. Our team will be next to you every step of the way.
From your first consultation, our staff will discuss the best treatment options for you. They will outline recovery and healing periods and talk to you regarding any worries you might have about dental implants.
We create a plan that gives you a detailed schedule of appointments you should follow, which are the steps you should follow. This plan also includes the aftercare steps. Please note that your overall health and oral hygiene is not only important for the procedure to happen, but also in general.
Your implants will be fitted by a team of skilled specialists. We have dentists and implantologists with over 15 years of experience in dental services. We have a large-scale knowledge of the procedures and we ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible during treatment.
Following the procedure, you will be receiving a plan that includes detailed instructions on the aftercare and postoperative treatment. As known, after any surgeries, you should focus more on fluids and soft foods. The same happens after dental implant surgery. You should also be careful with chewing for four to six months.
Maintenance of dental implants after the surgery is quite the same as the one for regular natural teeth. It involves a lot of brushing, flossing and dental checkups. Please make sure to brush your teeth twice a day. Floss every day and if possible after every meal.
Matter of fact, no. There exist other ways of replacing teeth, especially if there are multiple missing, like a fixed bridge that support 5 to 6 implant or a corresponding total restoration in the upper jaw that usually needs 6 to 7 implants.
