Dental implants

The state-of-the-art method for reconstructing a tooth involves replacing it with an implant.

An implant closely mimics the structure and the function of a tooth. Prior to the implantation, a thorough analysis of the bone foundation has to be carried out with the use of computer tomography. A titanium "root" is implanted into the bone and then covered with a flap of mucous membrane. The missing tooth, or teeth, are replaced with a temporary prosthetic device. The procedure is rendered completely painless by The Wand – a computer controlled anaesthetic delivery system. Within 4-6 months osteointegration takes place, i.e., the connection of the titanium implant with the bone. After a required period of time the missing tooth is reconstructed. In the front area, where aesthetic requirements are the most demanding, we suggest fully ceramic crowns and bridges, whereas for the side areas we offer crowns made of metal: gold or titanium. One of the advantages of implants is the possibility to make a permanent prosthetic device instead of a removable one without having to file the patient's teeth to shape. A removable prosthetic device is very troublesome for the patient. Moreover, it leads to alveoral atrophy and the loss of more teeth. Very often it is difficult to keep the complete lower denture because of the significant atrophy of the bone which occurs in the mandible. An implantation of two implants substantially improves the stabilization of the lower denture.

Implantation procedures are performed by an experienced implant surgeon, dentist Jerzy Zbożeń.
