Our process for your dental implants treatment in our dental practice is derived from our holistic approach to dentistry overall.
We’ll examine your smile, discuss your desired outcome and talk through any lifestyle factors.
We digitally scan your teeth and take a three-dimensional X-ray image to plan the best possible positioning of the implant in advance. For this purpose, a so-called drilling template is produced with the data in order to be able to carry out a safe and guided implantation.
Thanks to our minimal invasive surgery, we avoid swelling and wound bleeding to a maximum.
We’ll help you take care of your dental implant with regular for a pleasing smile you’ll cherish.
A dental implant is the easiest way to replace a natural tooth. The implant mimics the root of your natural tooth allowing it to be strongly attached to your jaw bone. Implants last for years and require minimal care.
With the high-performance ceramic zirconium dioxide, our ceramic implants display great body compatibility. They are 100% biocompatible and are thus suitable for all our patients.
Ceramic implants made from zirconium dioxide are the most biological system for secure, healthy teeth with a natural appearance. At INTEGRA Smile, we will always make sure that you benefit from an uncompromisingly high-quality, metal-free and therefore highly biocompatible material. Ceramic implants remain stable for decades and satisfy the highest requirements in terms of aesthetics and preservation of health. Your ceramic implant will be completely white, ensuring no dark edges that can become visible along the gums or shine darkly through the gingiva, as is often the case with titanium implants. Ceramic implants are metal-free, which means no corrosion, no electric charges and no other discomforts that you may have with metal-based implants.
At INTEGRA Smile, our experienced implantologists use minimally invasive surgical techniques and the possibilities of biological dentistry. For you, that means considerably less pain and swelling as well as faster wound healing.
Depending on the complexity of your case, it can take from 30 min to several hours. This is to be discussed with your dentist beforehand and after a thorough examination.
Just as any surgery, there can be some discomforts. Your dentist will prescribe all the necessary medication needed to ease this discomfort. Special care will also be taken in order to stay in contact with your dentist 24/7 after your surgery to answer your questions in case of any worry. After your surgery and proper cicatrisation, you will not feel your ceramic implant anymore.
An implant is not a proper transplant, as soft tissue might be. This does not mean that failure is not an option, but this means that other parameters should be taken into account to ensure the proper placement of your implant. At INTEGRA Smile, we will make sure to explain every step and every risk that can occur.
Thanks to our minimal invasive surgery, you will be able to go back to work the next day. At INTEGRA Smile, we will advise and provide you with a sick leave certificate if needed.
Long-term success depends on multiple factors:
– The quality of the bone is a decisive factor. The better the bone and the more available, the greater the chance of long-term success.
– Secondly, the experience. At INTEGRA Smile, we value a combined experience of 50 years in implantology.
– Third, the quality of the restoration placed on top of the implant will play a big role in long-term success. If the design of the implant crowns or over dentures are poorly constructed, and biting forces are not balanced, even the best-placed dental implant will have a compromised survival rate.
– Finally, like natural teeth, implants need to be checked and maintained regularly by your dentist at INTEGRA Smile.
Losing a tooth and not replacing it may cause other issues in the future. After some time, the bone starts to retract. As this bone disappears, problems with other teeth nearby and a lack of support for dentures, partials and bridges increase. These could include pain, mobility, lack of retention for prosthetics, sharp, painful ridges, mobile gum tissue and sore spots. The tongue enlarges to accommodate spaces of missing teeth. With tooth loss, a five-fold decrease in function occurs and the diet shifts to softer foods. Also, when bone is lost, numbness to the lower lip or even the possibility of fracture of the jaw rises. Since the bone is deteriorating, it will spread and deteriorate around healthy teeth and ultimately cause the loss of those teeth like the “domino effect”.
Anyone missing a tooth, several teeth or even all teeth can receive a dental implant. Ceramic implants are biocompatible meaning no tests are required beforehand. Together with your dentist at INTEGRA Smile, you will determine the best solution for your case.
Minors that have not finished all their growth must not receive implants because this could interfere in the growing process of the jaws.
If you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you are probably healthy enough to have an implant. General good health and adequate bone in the jaw are the key requirements. There are some medical factors that might prevent a person from being a good candidate for dental implants. Some of these may be uncontrolled diabetes, chemotherapy or radiation therapy, parathyroid disorders, blood disorders, rare bone disorders or bone marrow cancer. Some physical factors may include insufficient or poor-quality bone, low sinuses or nerve bundles.
The success of your implants will depend greatly on how well you maintain them. They will need to be examined by your implant dentist at least every 6 months. Also, brushing daily is absolutely necessary for long-term success. At INTEGRA Smile, you will receive some aftercare tips to ensure your implant to last the longest!
