The dental implant is a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth.
The dental implant is made of titanium which is placed directly into your jawbone, replacing the root of your missing tooth. After the placement, the bone surrounds the implant and it is able to hold crowns or dentures. (depends on the number of dental implants)
The first part is to place the implant in the bone of the jaw replacing the root of the tooth. After 3-4 months that the implant will be fused with the bone (Osseo integrated) we are ready to continue the placement of the crown. The crown can be glued or screwed retained on the implant.
In our clinic we place the Implants in a computer guided way, which ensures a very precise and accurate implant placement.
The benefit of the procedure is also the less traumatic technique where we can avoid opening a surgical side (uncovering the bone). This procedure that is followed in our clinic reduces dramatically the post operative pain and swelling. In fact, some of our patients do not even take a painkiller after the implant placement.
Before we take action, a very thoughtful plan is done on the computer by advanced 3D specialized programs that ensures safe placement of the implant with long term success.
For Computer Guided implant surgeries we take a CBCT scan (3D scan) of your bone and match it with a 3D impression of your jaw.
After that we digitally place the implant on the software and we design a 3D template that will give us the exact direction and depth of the implant. After that, the template (Surgical Guide) is 3D printed by our advanced resin 3D printer using Biocompatible resins. Then, we place the Surgical Guide into the mouth during the surgery which will guide to accurately place the implants and after we are done is removed from the mouth.
After the planning, the implant is placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia.
Bone augmentation is the procedure of replacing the missing bone due to previous infections or due to early loss of a tooth.
The healing period is when the dental implant is getting surrounded by the bone. It can take from 3 to 4 months to be able to provide a solid base for the crown.
After the healing period, we are ready to continue with the placement of the crown. The crown can be glued or screwed retained on the implant.
