Implantology

Introduction of the Growth Factors_PRF_CGF into modern dental practice. Blood sampling is done in the first place, and the blood of the patient is placed on a special centrifugal device. The growth factors (proteins) that we use in periodontology, cosmetic surgery treatments for the gum and many other oral surgery treatments are separated in a short period of time.

This modern technique is applicable in :

  • teeth extractions, in particular wisdom teeth and surgical ones
  • surgically placing implants in areas with large bone loss

In this way we minimize the possibility of inflammation, we reduce pain efficiently and promote healing with very good and predictable results in tissue regeneration (fast recovery and restoration).

After at least 2 months of their surgical placement, the implants have their permanent restoration with either dental crowns, bridges or detachable dentures. Many factors that a specially trained dentist can and must evaluate in order to achieve a stable and biologically tolerated result, affect the type but also the time of implant restoration.

Most of the time, a certain period of time is required after implant surgery until permanent prosthodontic restoration (minimum 2 months) is placed. Depending on the position that the implants are placed, the patient's profession, his natural activity, etc., we can demand that temporary prosthodontic restorations be placed directly so that the patient is not left without any teeth. These temporary restorations can be either a single tooth or a complete denture. They are supported either in the remaining teeth or in the gums or in mini-implants placed to that purpose. Except for the solution which they provide in the patient's esthetic problem, these restorations in some way prepare the area for permanent restoration.

The dental implant is made of titanium and simulates the root of the tooth. Its placement becomes surgically from a specially trained dentist, replacing the root from the tooth extracted inside the jaw bone. The surface of the implant is properly shaped, so that after its surgical placement it is inserted within the jaw bone and eventually one or more artificial teeth are assisted. The implant success rate is now quite large (< 90 %) from highly trained dentists, the duration of operation is limited and the endurance of the materials used is very long indeed. Modern technology with the use of special software also offers the possibility for anyone who wants to :

  • have specific placement of surgical implants in the ideal position for the best prosthodontic restoration
  • estimate the need of putting bone graft for a better esthetic and longer-lived prosthodontic restoration
  • reduce postoperative pain, oedema and surgical healing time
  • minimization of unpleasant surprises with predictable results during surgery
