Implantology


Implants allow in the most effective and very safe way to fill the gaps in the teeth. They are used in the absence of one or several teeth or in case of toothlessness. It was previously thought that this is a very exclusive service and referral only to wealthy individuals. It should be explained what in general the implants are. These are small titanium screws, which are inserted into the jaw bone or mandible replacing the tooth’s root. They are made in such a way as to be able to easily grow into the tissue and thus prevent further bone loss. In the next stages of treatment, after the complete healing and integration to the bone, structures replacing teeth are established- both individual teeth and larger replacements (as the bridges, crowns or snap-on dentures). The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. We work exclusively on proven materials and equipment – we use the Biomet 3i implant systems belonging to one of the best in the world. Solutions are individually tailored to the state of teeth and bones of the patient. We also make an effort to make the process of adaptation of implants and subsequent prevention proceeded in the right way. Opting for dental implants, the patient receives a very natural effect, the gradual bone loss is stopped and there is no need for the shaping of neighboring teeth, as is may be in the case of preparing the removable dentures.

Tooth implant, bridge or crown?

Nowadays, implantation is the best and the most popular method of rebuilding the tooth. The crown is attached to the implant, bridge or denture. Crown does not require prior grinding of the teeth or integration in the adjacent teeth. Thus the bone and the gum is properly formed and loaded. New tooth implant is just as functional as natural. However, placing the bridge requires sawing the tooth nearby the loss, which is an irreversible loss of the protective enamel layer - in this case, the length of life of the tooth can be shortened. Such a solution does not burden the bones, as in the case of natural tooth, so after a while the bone and muscle gradually disappear. The elements of the bridge are sometimes visible.

 

About implants

The loss of teeth is a very frequent and serious problem occurring as a result of not only lack of hygiene but also as a result of accidents, weakening diseases, vitamin, deficiency or genetic disorders.

Everyone who lost his teeth or even a tooth knows how this situation is frustrating, difficult and uncomfortable in able to function normally in life.

Dental implants are the most modern and comfortable prosthetic restoration.Owing to them, it is possible to restore lost teeth without the necessity to include in the process the adjoining teeth. In dentistry, the term 'implant' denotes an element which substitutes the root of the vital tooth. Introduced surgically into the bone of alveolar process, it enables performing fixed prosthetic restoration - a crown or bridge. It is similar to a small diameter bolt with an inner thread which is designed for prosthetic fixation purposes. Implantation procedures last from 3 to 6 months - it is the so called adaptative period depending on the position of the implant and individual healing properties of the organism.

 

What is the implant?

Implants allow in the most effective and very safe way to fill the gaps in the teeth. They are used in the absence of one or several teeth or in case of toothlessness. It was previously thought that this is a very exclusive service and referral only to wealthy individuals. It should be explained what in general the implants are.

Opting for dental implants, the patient receives a very natural effect, the gradual bone loss is stopped and there is no need for the shaping of neighboring teeth, as is may be in the case of preparing the removable dentures.

 

How does the treatment look like?

During the first consultation you will meet with the dental specialist, who will make an intraoral examination, analyze the X-ray picture and who will explain your treatment- walk you through your treatment plan and answer your questions. As part of your appointment you will receive a copy of the digital pictures of your teeth on a CD.

Using advanced technology, equipment and experience of our physicians( second degree specialists) we provide you with the highest level of safety and comfort services.

It should be stressed that the dental implant treatment is painless. First the patient comes for implantology consultation, which allows to determine whether the patient may get dental implants or not. Contraindications relate primarily to the poor health, or the occurrence of patient conditions such as unstable diabetes (slow wound healing), osteoporosis, AIDS, coagulation disorders and cancer. The procedure of inserting a dental implant cannot be performed in pregnant women, minors and when the bone development is incomplete.

After in-depth interview, the physician evaluates the quantity and the quality of bone tissue, which is to provide the support for the implant. Sometimes, obtaining satisfactory results of treatment requires an additional treatment, for example reconstruction of a bone or soft tissues and, in some cases, orthodontic treatment is recommended. With the pantomographic picture, prerequisites can be evaluated They include bone health, the height of the alveolar mucosa thickness, the distance to the bottom of the nasal cavity and the size and the position of the maxillary sinuses.

Implantation of dental implant surgery is small invasive, so you only need a local or wired anesthetic. Then the gum is cut, the hole drilled in the bone and the tooth implant is being screwed.

 

How long does it take?

Implant treatment takes just 20 minutes and is totally painless. The second part of the surgery is to make dental crowns, dentures supported by implants or bridges. After surgery, the patient takes an antibiotic and a painkiller. As with tooth extraction a little pain is felt, and the swelling disappears after 2-3 days.

 

Advantages and disadvantages of dental treament

The major advantages of dental implant treatment are:

  • the treamtent is painless
  • implants look and work in the most possible natural manner
  • the implant root is inserted in the same place in the jaw bone
  • adjacent teeth stay undamaged – the implant substitute the missing tooth so it is unnecessary to prepare neighbouring teeth
  • clasps can make removable dentures more stable
  • implant can last as long as natural teeth
  • implant do not have to be extrated unless serious mechanical damage occurs

 

Disadvantages of dental implant treatment:

  • the treatment takes longer than bridges and dentures
  • the treatment is depended on the process of bone healing

 

How much does dental implants cost?

In the long-term, dental implant treatment, as compared to a conventional treatment, incurs lower total costs (especially when the patient has adequate quality bone and does not require further bone augmentation).

Professional clinic, together with the patient, establish a detailed plan of all treatments. Thanks to it, the approximate cost of the treatment can be given and the best solution can be chosen. Exact prices are determined after the diagnosis. Approximate cost of the crown on the implant is about 2000 zloty, porcelain crown on metal 750 zloty, all-ceramic crown about 1400 zloty, complete denture acrylic 1000 zloty, 750 zloty partial, porcelain veneer will cost about 1800 zloty. Choosing the best solution is undertaken together with the doctor, who adjusts the best method of implantation of artificial tooth.
