    Dental Implant abroad, in Hungary

    In case of tooth loss, implants can provide a durable solution. Implantation needs to meet a number of health circumstances to have a lifelong durability. Following the advice of the dentist, not only their appearance, but their function will also be the same as your own tooth. In some cases, only one tooth should be replaced by an implant, occasionally bridging the implant and there may be complete or removable dentures.

    Implantation is a serious medical intervention, the process can take up to 1-1.5 years.

    After the area has been prepared (tooth extraction, bone grafting as needed), the next step is the implantation of the screws. After the healing period, the dentist begins to prepare the crowns, which are permanently placed on the surface after multiple testing and alignment.

    What is a dental implant?

    A tooth implant is an artificial replacement of the tooth root that is anchored to a pre-drilled hole in the jawbone to hold a crown, bridge or full bridge or denture on teeth implants (overdenture). Dental implants are made of titanium, a material that is well tolerated (biocompatible) by the human body and easily integrates (osseointegration) with bone tissue.

    During an implant dentistry process, the oral surgeon achieves a close contact between the surface of the dental implant and the tissue of the jawbone. With time the tooth implant integrates with the jawbone, creating a solid and durable support for the tooth replacement. If there is a need for the replacement of more than one tooth a dental implant supported bridge or a full denture is built on the dental implants.

    In some cases when there is not enough jawbone to support a dental implant, sinus lift or bone grafting needs to be prepared.

    Dental implants will enable you to eat, chew, talk, smile, laugh confidently, so much that you will ever forget that your teeth are not naturally yours.

    Why should I get a dental implant?

    If you are tired of all the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the food that you love and the ineffectiveness of denture adhesives or just want to have one missing tooth to be replaced, then dental implants are the perfect solution for you.

    If you are still hesitating about dental implants here are some of the possible aftermaths of missing teeth:

    • Contiguous teeth might move towards the gap, thus your denture might loosen up. This can cause you difficulty in chewing that might lead to indigestion.
    • If you don’t act as soon as possible, your jawbone starts losing bone mass with time. Bone resorption may result in a transformation of your face and you may have a strange appearance.
    • During the chewing process, orts or food residues might stay in the gap that has a negative effect on the neighboring teeth (both sides).
    • Furthermore, missing incisors might give you a hard time in talking and you might lose confidence in public.

    Before and after pictures for dental implants

    Case 1 – Full zirconia replacement for neglected and almost toothless upper jaw and bridge on dental implants on lower jaw

    The patient had not been to a dentist for several years and neglected his teeth. For his upper jaw, he wanted to have all his remaining worn and discolored front teeth removed and replaced by a full bridge on teeth implants so he got a white, aesthetic full zirconia bridge on six dental implants. As for his lower jaw, he preferred to have zirconia bridge replacement on a dental implant for his missing molars on both sides and individual zirconia crowns on his chipped and discolored front teeth.

    Case 2 – Lateral zirconia bridges on dental implants to replace missing molars

    Patient had missing molars in upper and lower jaws on both sides. Besides he was unsatisfied with his crooked and crowded front teeth. He got four zirconia bridges on ten teeth implants to replace his missing molars and individual crowns on his upper and lower front teeth to correct misalignment and crowding.

    Benefits of dental implants

    Risks of dental implant surgery

    Dental implant placement, just like any other surgery, has some health risks. These problems are not very common, and in general easily treatable. Most complications are avoidable by carefully following the instructions of your oral surgeon.

    These already low risks can also be considerably reduced by choosing an experienced surgeon and a well-renowned clinic that follows strict quality standards. The correct preparation of the treatment site and the precise placement of the implants can lessen the trauma of the jawbone which makes the recovery period easier for the patient.

    • Risks of bleeding and effects of the anesthesia: it is advisable to not to drive right after the dental implant surgery, avoid eating for a couple of hours and don’t do any intensive physical activities, such as sauna or sports.
    • Risks of infection: please consider mouth hygiene recommendations of your dentist, don’t use any mouthwash in the first few days and it is important to not to suck on the wound to decrease the possibility of an infection.

    What are the most common complications?

    • Infection at the implant site
    • Injury or damage to the surrounding teeth, nerves, blood vessels, or jaw
    • Implant rejection
    • Sinus problems (only with implants in the upper jaw)
    • Prolonged bleeding

    Am I a good candidate for the implant dentistry treatment?

    Dental implants can be placed in the jaw of patients of any age (with fully developed jawbones), provided that they have a sufficient quantity and quality of jawbone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene are suitable candidates for teeth implants.

    Circumstances where dental implants may not be suitable, or situations that have an increased risk of dental implant failure, include:

    • Heavy smoking: this will impede and decelerate the healing process
    • Excessive alcohol intake: disrupts healing process of the gums
    • Periodontal gum disease: has to be treated prior to implantation since severe gum disease causes jawbone loss
    • Immuno-compromised patients: steroids, patients undergoing radiation treatment, auto-immune disease
    • Teeth grinders (bruxism): in case of bruxism so-called mouthguard or nightguard (also known as an occlusal splint) is provided to prevent chipping of porcelain crowns
    • Diabetes: it can make the healing process longer and affect the integration of the implant. Patients with diabetes are  also at a higher risk of infection and other complications. With controlled diabetes, patients usually have successful implant surgeries if precautions are taken, but patients with uncontrolled diabetes shouldn’t opt for this type of dental replacement.

    Can tooth grinders have dental implants as well?

    The answer is yes. Bruxism isn’t an obstacle in case of placing a dental implant. In fact, it is a very common habit to have and it isn’t a conscious thing, it mostly happens during sleeping. Please let your dentist know if you are aware of having bruxism but he or she will also be able to discover the symptoms and signs by his or herself.

    Tooth grinding puts an extra pressure on the dental implant which can be solved a few ways. The dental crown, dental bridge or the denture can be built up from a stronger material to be able to bear the extra impact. Additional tooth implants may also be added to support the tooth replacement. In addition to these mentioned, your dentist may also suggest you using a removable splint (also called a mouthguard) for the night to reduce pressure.

    How do I know that I have enough bone for a dental implant?

    It’s not possible to estimate for yourself if the jawbone is enough or not for an implant dentistry procedure.

    An X-ray and a CT scan are necessary to evaluate your bone density and volume, and information about nearby anatomical structures (such as nerves) can also be gathered. The dentist might indicate that your bone would need support, i.e. an artificial bone replacement/grafting or sinus lift to firmly anchor your dental implants.

    Remember, this part of the whole process is not harmless or secure if you are in a bad condition, so please make sure that before and during the dental implant procedure you are healthy and get enough rest.

    How long will my dental implants last?

    For a lifetime. You have to make sure to take care of all the advice from the cosmetic dentist. If your oral health is kept there should not be any problems arising.

    Why do we use AlphaBio and Nobel Biocare teeth implants?

    Dental implant costs vary according to their brand. While Nobel Biocare is a premium dental implant at a premium dental implant cost, AlphaBio is a high-quality product at reasonable price.

    Steps of the dental implant surgery procedure

    The whole dental implantation procedure (from tooth implantation to final restoration) varies in each case.

    Possible dental treatments prior to dental implantation (necessary only is some cases) Dental treatment Healing period
    removal of fully decayed tooth sometimes tooth implantation can be done immediately after tooth extraction, while in other cases 3-4 weeks are necessary for bone to heal before dental implantation
    bone augmentation the jawbone needs 4-6 months healing period before tooth implantation
    sinus lift (only in case of upper jaw) after sinus lift minimum 8 months is necessary before dental implantation
    Steps of tooth implantation procedure Dental treatment Healing period
    dental implant placement or dental implantation after dental implantation the jawbone needs 4-6 months to ossify around tooth implant
    impression for restoration after tooth implant exposure doctor takes impression for final restoration
    fixing abutment and crown final restoration (crown, bridge, full bridge, overdenture or All-on-4) is made in 5 days

    1. Consultation and planning

    During the first consultation, our oral surgeon or dental implant specialist evaluates the panoramic X-ray and consult with the patient. If the patient’s general condition and bone tissue are found to make the dental implant procedure possible, a customized personal dental treatment plan is prepared. The dentist may order additional examinations or request a CT scan if necessary to check bone mass.

    2. Dental implantation

    During the 100% painless tooth implantation procedure, the dental implant is placed in the jawbone. After the surgical procedure is performed according to the protocol, the patient is given advice and instructions for the healing period (necessary time for the bone recover). If no sufficient bone tissue is available for dental implantation, a special dental surgical procedure called bone augmentation or bone graft is provided to replace missing bone tissue.

    3. Healing time

    During the next 3-6 months (healing time) after dental implantation, the tooth implant heals under the gum, i.e. the dental implant integrates into the jawbone. During this period the patient has to maintain perfect oral hygiene and take medications as instructed.

    4. Final restoration

    After the healing period, the final restoration is built on the dental implant or implants. There are many types of restoration on dental implants from simple solutions (single crown on one tooth implant or bridge on two dental implants) to full restorations (full bridge on 6-8 dental implants, All-on-4 fixed dentures).

    If you have no teeth in the lower jaw and are not yet ready for multiple dental implant placements, a conventional lower denture can be replaced by a removable overdenture.


    5. Check-up

    The long-term success of the dental implant and the artificial tooth built on it cannot be guaranteed without careful oral hygiene; therefore, it is very important that the patient maintains, and improves if necessary, his or her oral hygiene. After the prosthetic procedure, patients have a check-up examination at least every year to check oral hygiene and the function and stability of the tooth implant.

    Dental implant – how many appointments do I need?

    One of the most important things you need to consider when you are thinking about the length of your dental implant treatment is your own health. Healing of a tooth implant and surrounding tissues, like gum and bone should not be rushed because it might affect your appearance, chewing or talking abilities.

    To complete your dental treatment, several months or maybe a year is needed which of course asks for patience. Try to think of that your dentist has planned your treatment process carefully and he or she is doing the best for you.

    Generally, every dental implant treatment at our dental clinic in Budapest starts with a consultation often with an X-ray or a CT scan imaging, during which you also get your detailed cost- and treatment plan. The next step is usually the placement of the dental implant which is followed by the healing period.

    After 3-6 months the oral surgeon uncovers the implant site to see how well the tooth implant has integrated with the jawbone. If everything is OK, a healing screw will be placed. Two following appointments are necessary to create and to place the final tooth replacement, which can either be a crown, a dental bridge or a fixed denture.

    Don’t forget about the yearly controls which are also important to provide you with a life-long solution of replacing your tooth with a dental implant.

    What shall I do after dental implant surgery?

    After the tooth implant surgery, there might be symptoms of intensifying pain, swellings inside the mouth or even the face.

    This is common sense as dental implant surgery is a kind of an intervention into your body. In case of any pain, it is indicated to take some regular painkillers (provided FREE of charge at MDental), because they might help you to handle the first days after the surgery. In addition, it is prudential to foment the affected region with some ice jelly (provided FREE of charge at MDental) to make sure that swelling is on the wane faster along with taking prescribed antibiotics (provided FREE of charge at MDental).

    Usually stitches should be removed 7-10 days after the dental implantation surgery, nevertheless, MDental uses resolvable stitches, i.e. you can spare an extra journey for stitches removal.

    Dental implant recovery time – how long does it take?

    In every case, a certain time is needed for the dental implant to heal and to integrate with the bone (osseointegration). The length of this healing period depends on where the tooth implant is actually placed. The lower jaw heals faster usually than the maxilla (upper jaw). This means that in case of a lower jaw implantation the next step of the dental treatment can be done within 2-4 months.

    According to implant dentistry guidelines, 3 to 6 months should be allowed for a maxillary dental implant to heal. Of course, personal health conditions may also influence the length of this healing period.

    When will be my dental implant fully functional?

    A dental implant site needs approximately 3 to 6 months to heal depending on where the tooth implant was placed (upper and lower jaw have different healing abilities). Shortly after the surgery, a temporary denture can be worn but still, unless the tooth implant is not integrated completely with the jawbone, but it cannot be exposed to too much pressure (e.g. avoid to consume apples, nuts, dry bread, etc.).

    When the implant is properly anchored and the final tooth replacement is added, the dental implant is going to be durable and stable enough and can be used just like a tooth of your own.

    Why is regular check-up important after dental implant surgery?

    Yearly check-up after a tooth implant is more important than in case of other dental treatments. Dental implant treatment is a serious intervention into your body.

    Although our dentists at MDental Clinic use the best material available on the market, treat your teeth with a high quality of expertise and take your health status into consideration, some eventual trouble may arise later on. It is strongly advised therefore to have your regular check-up with your dentist as advised.

    The consequences of neglecting dental check-ups after a tooth implant:

    • any infections might develop faster on gums or in the bone
    • possible boneloss around the dental implant cannot be detected on time

    How much does a dental implant cost?

    The cost of dental implant basically depends on the complexity of the operation, the used materials and suggested prosthetic works. Possible bone grafting or sinus lift can also affect the dental implant price. So the cost of dental implant treatments are not easy to compare.

    Below you can find two typical tooth implant cost examples for porcelain crown(s) on dental implants (3 unit porcelain bridge on two dental implants and full porcelain bridge on six dental implants) prepared for you to better understand the cost and see the necessary treatments.
