Dental Implants – City Clinic Bratislava

Dental Implants

Patients must be aware that they do have a choice when it comes to replacing lost teeth – they no longer have to settle for bridgework or dentures, which do not offer the aesthetic excellence of Dental Implants.

Dental Implants for replacing missing teeth have become so successful, that they are now considered the best available option, and the primary treatment of choice. Dental Implants can provide a person with a beautiful smile – and the confidence that comes with it.

When a tooth or teeth are missing in the mouth, this may have a huge impact on the appearance of the face. A gap in the teeth can cause problems for a person’s confidence as well as problems associated with the use of the teeth for eating and talking. Dental Implants can provide a permanent cosmetic and functional solution to missing teeth, producing an aesthetically pleasing smile, and providing a tooth where there was once a gap.

A Dental Implant imitates the root of a real tooth. If a person has lost one or more teeth, an implant can be used to replace the root of the tooth by placing a titanium fixture into the bone beneath the gum, onto which a prosthetic tooth is then attached. Implants provide many benefits and compare favourably with other forms of tooth replacement. By imitating real teeth, implants are a great technological development in dental treatment. A Dental Implant looks and acts like a natural tooth. It provides an alternative to dentures that may be uncomfortable or unstable. With dentures, the patient is often restricted as to what foods he or she can eat, and the denture may click or wobble. With dental implants, the patient is free to enjoy the foods that a person with natural teeth is able to eat. As opposed to crown and bridge work, neighbouring teeth are not involved when an implant is placed. This reduces any harm to healthy teeth.

What is the procedure?

Only a minor operation is needed to place a dental implant. This is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. After the operation, most patients report only minor discomfort, similar to that associated with a simple tooth extraction. This is easily controlled by analgesia. During the first stage of treatment, the surgeon will place the implant into the bone beneath your gum in a position similar to that of a natural tooth root.

Then begins the process of osseointegration, which involves the bone growing around the Implant to secure it.

Once osseointegration has occured, a model of the patient’s teeth will be made, and from this, a prosthetic tooth will be made, which will then be attached to the implant. The crown will look and feel like your own natural teeth.

If implants are well looked after, and good oral health is maintained by the patient, the implant should last as long as a natural tooth.
