DENTAL IMPLANTS

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option made of a biocompatible material, titanium that involves placing a new "root" into the bone of your jaw. Once this surgically inserted titanium "root" has fused with your bone it can be used to support a crown, bridge, denture facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Each implant features an artificial root, the post and a crown. Cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants are a life changing solution to replace missing teeth. They restore your appearance, speech, nutrition, oral and general health as well as self-esteem.

At our Stomatologija i estetika dental office we pride ourselves on providing only the best quality dental products to our patients, so we offer our patients premium quality Straumann® components as one of the leading brands in the dental implant world.

PRECONDITIONS

Dental implants are are surgically placed into the jawbone where a single tooth or teeth are missing below the gums.

Implants are considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. There is no age restriction for dental implant surgery, but they are not recommended in case of certain diseases, such as advanced osteoporosis, uncontrolled diabetes, heart or kidney diseases, psychosys etc. In case of insufficient bone density or volume, it is possible to rebuild it before the implant placement.

DIGITAL IMPLANT PLANNING

Digital implant planning and guided implant surgery based on 3D radiographic data and the digitised intraoral surfaces provide valuable information and permit stringent backward planning to optimize the implantological and prosthetic result, improving the safety and efficiency of the surgical procedure and rendering the restorative outcome more predictable in terms of function, biology and aesthetics. Implant workflow is optimized with 3Shape Implant Studio®, an implant planning innovative software solution that translates into less invasive and more comfortable treatment experience for the patient. Guided surgery also extends to greater confidence, predictability, treatment precision and efficiency when handling complex cases.

PROCEDURE

    1. In the first visit, an intraoral scanner captures optical impressions directly on the patient's jaws and X-ray imaging including dental CBCT are performed.
    2. With the acquisition of cone beam computed topography imaging (CBCT)and intraoral scanning data, implant position is virtually planned and determined. Image data acquired in such way are used to create surgical template for implant placement. We use surgical guides, a 3D printed patient's specific medical device that is used for the accurate placement of the implant in the bone structure. It replicates the exact surfaces of the patient’s intraoral situation and assists the surgeon to perform the clinical application of drilling implants into the bone with optimal accuracy.

    3. The third phase of the same visit is placement of temporary crown.

    The entire process can be completed in as little as one day.

Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved, which is the biggest advantage over other tooth replacement options.

The best possible option for your oral health and your general health would be to replace each tooth with a dental implant, since there is no need for your dentist to grind down healthy adjacent teeth.

Especially after the loss of several teeth, the jaw bone irreversibly changes, it begins to deteriorate and dissolve away immediately after extraction and continues forever unless an implant is placed. You may also experience a shift in your remaining teeth that naturally move toward the empty space, which affects the jaw sensory-motor system. So the main purpose of an implant is to restore strength, functionality, shape and size to a tooth, and to improve its appearance.

TOOLS FOR TOOTHLESSNESS

All-on-4®

treatment concept is a dental implant solution strategically designed for toothless jaws. With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can restore a complete jaw of missing teeth. A very elaborate way of placing implants at the back of the mouth also makes it a treatment option for patients whose jaw bone is severely reduced after years without teeth.

Your dentist can connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery, within 24 hours.

All-on-6®

dental implants procedure is used to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. This process allows the patient the option to replace all of their teeth with six natural-looking dental implants.

In certain cases, if a patient wants to increase the number of teeth on a dental bridge (and thus increase the masticatory surface), without compromising the implant stability due to excessive forces, the additional installation of two more implants in the posterior region is also possible.

All-on-4® and All-on-6® are implant treatment concepts that provide toothless patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the dental office with a full set of aesthetic and functional teeth and return to leading a normal life.
