The implant placement process begins with the surgical stage during which the implants are placed in the jawbone. It is a surgical procedure because it requires access to the jawbone in a sterile environment.

If the implant shows satisfactory initial stability in the bone, then it is covered with a healing screw that remains outside the gums until the completion of osseointegration (a process in which the bone and the implant are becoming 1) and the placement of the prosthetic work. If there is insufficient initial stability, bone graft is added where needed and the implant is completely "buried" in the gums until osseointegration is complete. A small, painless operation is then required, surgically or with a laser, to expose the implant, so that the process of prosthetic implant restoration can begin.

Surgical Guide

Guided surgery has allowed the improvement of conventional techniques that are limited in terms of accuracy and proximity of the implant to the adjacent tooth roots and various anatomical elements. The surgical guide can be used to anticipate anatomical obstacles as well as to respect residual bone volume and its suitability for future prosthetic restoration. In conventional implantology, the implant site guides the design and drills, rather than the future prosthetic axis. In addition, the intervention time is much shorter and the operation is less invasive. This benefits both the patient and the physician. Guided surgery reduces stress for the surgeon and the need to change sites during the intervention, as well as making the surgeries safe with respect to the bone. Precise placement of implants in the available bone can help reduce the need for grafts and even allow the use of implants in complex cases where anatomical limitations have previously prevented treatment.

Prosthetic treatment

Prosthetic work with dental implants is similar to the process of conventional prosthetics.

Placing the final prosthetic work on the implant or implants takes place when the gums have healed. An impression is taken in which the positions of the implants are recorded and the prosthetic restoration is manufactured in the laboratory. After placing the prosthesis on the implant, the aesthetics and function of the denture return to normal. With proper care and consistent monitoring, dental implants can be maintained unchanged for many years.

Frequent questions

Is there a limit to the lifespan of implants?

No, they can function flawlessly for a lifetime as long as the relevant hygiene and preventive care is in place.

Is the process of placing an implant painful?

The placement is done under local anesthesia with or without drug sedation, so it is a painless procedure.

Is there swelling (swelling) after surgery?

Yes, to some extent that depends on the size of the operation and the temperament of the patient. But it is controlled medicinally  and by using cold patches externally.

How many implants do I need to get rid of dentures?

The minimum number of implants to accept fixed prosthetic restorations is for the upper jaw 6 and for the lower jaw 4-6 implants.
