Dental implants are titanium screws, which replace missing tooth roots. Implant structure and surface is modified in a way, which makes it visible for body as collagen-like, „friendly” surface. Thanks to that human body tolerates dental implants and osseintegration takes place, in order to create connection between bone and implant. Using dental implants we are able to restore missing teeth. At our dental clinic we use highest quality implants systems, scientificaly examined by American, German, Japanese, Swiss specialists.
Our implantologists are experts with international titles. Their qualifications are a result of over 12 yeras of constant training and courses taken around the world.
Implantation is not a complicated procedure. It consists with 3 stages. First step, after examination and x-rays, is a stage when implantologist drills a small hole in bone in order to place implant in position. This doesn`t take more than 1 hour. When osseintegration is completed, which takes 2-3 months, dentist is ready for prosthetic impressions. After next few days a crown is ready to fully restore missing tooth. Below you can find description of some aspect in dental implant therapy. These are most commom situations our doctors deal with.
Good implants – properties and features
What properties and characteristics should have good implants in order to guarantee its best quality? The patients’ growing expectation of aesthetics and less invasive procedures in implantology force continual, very high progress in this field of science.
Best dental implants
We decide to place high quality dental implants from trustworthy producents for several important reasons.
Bone regeneration for implants
Losing even a single tooth implies irreversible changes in the structure of the alveolar bone. After the removal of the tooth after a few weeks, a new bone tissue will be filled, but it will never be as valuable as the original bone at this point.
Implant treatment guarantee
Our implantologists has been placing and restoring dental implants for over 12 years and has had very few failures. The main causes for failure have been in heavy smokers where healing is not as good.
Inflammation of tissues around implant
Periimplantitis, bone lesions, gums problems and bite problems are things we sometimes have to deal with. They are very rare indeed. Main risk factors are bad oral hygiene, smoking and existing periodontal diseases.
Future bone loss or gum problems.
Complications during implant treatment
It must be remembered that dental implants carry the one of the highest success rates of any dental treatment and having been around for over 50 years they have been very well researched so we know how well they last long term.
Missing tooth and what’s next ?
It is possible to not have any treatment at all however at the back of the mouth this causes an obvious problem with chewing.
It is also important that you understand what the alternative treatment options to dental implants are.
After a period of around 3-4 months, your implant will be ready to restore. However, it may initially need to be exposed, if your gum has healed over the top of it. This is a simple procedure done under local anaesthetic.
The implant placement is a surgical procedure carried out under local anaesthesia. Sedation can also be arranged if you wish if you are anxious about any aspect of the treatment. Please let me know in advance of the surgery so that I can arrange sedation for you.
The assessment is the most important part of the procedure will determine just what we can achieve with implants. I will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to ensure they are as healthy as can be.
Bone transplant for the implant
Loss of tooth is usually associated with a not to good aesthetic appearance. Unfortunately, this can often lead to bone loss, which then involves bone grafting before implantation. The reasons for bone loss may be varied.
Missing teeth are not only an aesthetic matter, but also have particularly negative effect on digestive system and may lead to further problem with the remaining teeth.
Dental Implant Surgery
The most physiological way to restore the missing tooth is a dental implant surgery. Usually, a dental implant can be compared to the tooth root which is made from titanium and its’ size can be compred to a small screw.
Contraindications to dental implants
Implantation is a relatively not very invasive procedure. Like any surgical procedure, however, it requires a surgical intervention. Therefore, we can distinguish some contraindications to dental implants: relative and absolute, which limit or prevent the implantation procedure.

Dental Implants Gdansk

Bone augmentation for implant placement
Bone augmentation for implant placement is a commonly used procedure performed with implantation. Over time, toothless bone process is going to disappear considerably.
Augmentation of bone
Augmentation of bone – a valuable and basic technique used in the Perfect Smile Dental Clinic in Gdańsk is dependent on the size of the bone loss and on the planned implant treatment. Loss of a single tooth leads to rapid decay of alveolar bone.
Bone augmentation prior implants treatment
Bone augmentation in dental implantology – methods of treatment enabling the implantation of dental implants. Those are the cases in which bone reconstruction becomes necessary not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for healthy ones.
Jaw computed tomography
Ct scan is one of the methods of dental diagnostics. Proper planning of implantological procedures must be preceded by accurate bone structure diagnostics. The key is whether the amount of alveolar bone is sufficient to place the implant. Bone density is also a very important parameter.
Dental implants – restoration of missing teeth
In the case of edentolous patients dental implants are perfect solution to improve the patient’s life comfort. Patients are no longer doomed for removable full dentures. To perform permanent work with toothlessnes, 6 to 8 implants should be implanted in the jaw and 6 implants in the mandible.
Dental bridges on implants
Dental bridges on implants- replenishment of multi-tooth missing teeth using dental implants. Extensive tooth loss is a serious health problem. It cause a large decrease in the ability of proper chewing, contribute to the collapse of the cheeks and changes in facial features.
The tooth implant is currently the most physiological solution to complete the lack of teeth. After all, the problem of single missing teeth is very common. The loss of each tooth creates a cosmetic defect, foreclose proper chewing and adversely affects the entire stomatognathic system.
Price of implant placement

Not every dentist wants to be an implantologist or may not be suitable for the role of an implantologist. The beginning of implant treatment for the patients must be supported by surgical, prosthetic and periodontal experience and knowledge.
