Dental Implant Advice from Dentalwise and Dental Implants Abroad

Posted on: 27 Jun 2013

One must never read any medical related article on any website and take that as gospel, every person who may require medical treatment of any kind, is unique and your condition and/or requirements can never be solved by generalised information based on a broad spectrum of human interest history. Always consult with your medical practitioner and receive professional advice and guidance on any of the questions you may have pertaining to dental implants, local or abroad.

What can you do if a dental implant in Hungary does not work?

Whether the surgery was done locally or abroad, if an implant does not achieve or cannot maintain a rigid fixation with the surrounding bone it will eventually become loose and no longer be able to support replacement teeth. Commonly the failing implant causes no discomfort and if there are enough remaining, it may not be necessary to replace it at all.

Failures may not always be so easy to deal with and if you embark upon this type of treatment you have to be prepared to deal with this possibility. Most treatment providers will want to achieve failure rates much less than 5%, however in practice this could mean that 1 in 20 of the implants placed might not survive it's long-term function. It is a good idea to discuss with the Professional how your dental implant abroad treatment plan might be affected by the loss of any one implant.

How long does treatment take?

For routine cases, from the time of the dental implant placement to the time of placing the first teeth, treatment times can vary between 6 weeks and 6 months. The availability of better bone can be used to decrease treatment time, whilst more time and care must be taken with poorer bone, which can therefore extend treatment times beyond six months. If there is no reason to shorten the duration of your treatment then be prepared to wait, nobody loses an implant from being patient.

Are the new teeth joined together?

When multiple dental implants are placed, they are routinely joined together in the same way that a bridge supported by natural teeth would be designed. If enough implants are available, it is often easier and just as effective to make several smaller sections of bridgework, each supporting a few teeth. The overall effect in the mouth is the same and if you ever need to repair one of the small sections, this can be very much easier to execute.

Again the bone quality and the number and position of the dental implants will largely determine which option is most suitable for you. When implant-supported teeth are linked together, they are mechanically stronger than the individual parts and can better resist the forces of normal function which may result in loosening screw components, or posts and/or cements that secure the underlying structure to each of the implants.

How do I look after the implants?

For most implant-supported teeth you will be able to clean around each supporting implant by brushing and flossing in just the same way that you would around natural teeth and tooth-supported bridges. In some areas special floss, interdental toothbrushes and other cleaning aids may be needed to maintain good oral hygiene. Cleaning is not at all difficult, provided that you do not have impaired use of your hands.

It is reasonable to expect some of the daily hygiene procedures to be a little more complex than around your natural teeth, also expect to spend more time than you may have done in the past if you wish to maintain optimum implant health. For the first few months the implants are in function your dentist may require to examine you more frequently, however once your dental implants perform as planned, ongoing care will be similar to any patient
