All About Crete Dental Implants


Did you know?

Over 5 million dental implants are placed annually in the US. They have successfully restored teeth for over 30 years.[6]

A dental implant is a popular tooth replacement option after tooth loss or extraction.[7] It is an artificial tooth root surgically placed into your jawbone.

Components of Dental Implants

A dental implant has three functional pieces.

  • The Implant: Serves as tooth’s artificial root
  • The Abutment: Connects implant and crown
  • The Crown: Fake tooth on the abutment

Structure od dental implant

Dental implants restore your lost teeth in various ways.

They can be categorized based on their:

Now, let's delve into each of these aspects in detail below.

Types of Dental Implant Positioning

Implant positioning depends on jawbone health and personal preference. Based on these factors, you may receive one of the following types of dental implants in Crete.

These implants are the most common type.

They are placed into the jawbone and need sufficient bone density.

Patients with low bone density may need a graft before the procedure.

Endosteal Dental Implant

Endosteal Dental Implant

Subperiosteal implants are placed under the gums, above the jawbone.

These implants are suitable if you:

  • lack jawbone for an endosteal implant, and
  • wish to avoid a bone graft procedure.

The Crete dentist will evaluate your jawbone density.

Then, they will select the optimal implant position that protects the mouth, considering your preferences.


Types of Dental Implant Materials

Dental implants in Crete are made from titanium or zirconia. Both materials are biocompatible, FDA-approved, and safe.[9][10]

Most importantly, they are selected according to the patient’s concerns and goals.

Titanium Dental Implants

Titanium implants are traditionally used due to their excellent fusion capability with the human jawbone.

The metal has proven to be a successful and durable choice for dental implants, as well.

The cost of titanium dental implant in Crete is $1,300/€1,215/£1,030.

Pros: Strong, long-lasting, and lightweight, low failure rate

Cons: Allergic reactions, chances for autoimmune disorders

Zirconia Dental Implants

Zirconia is a relatively new metal-free crystal material used in dental implants.

They have a natural white color resembling real teeth.

The cost of zirconium dental implant in Crete is $1,700/€ 1,590/£1,350.

Pros: Shorter surgery due to on-piece construction, no allergic reaction

Cons: Prone to micro fractures, less flexible and lack customization options

Once you've selected the best dental implant type for your situation, the next step is to decide on the procedure.

The next section explores the procedures used to secure dental implants in place.

Types of Procedure

Crete dentists use either a one-stage or two-stage surgical technique for placing implants. Let's explore these methods further.[13]

  • It involves surgically placing a longer implant into the jawbone
  • The implant is positioned at the level of the bone, with its top aligned with the gum tissue.
  • The gum tissue is closed with stitches while the implant's healing cap remains visible.
  • After healing, the abutment and temporary restoration are attached without further surgery to expose the implant head.

  • In this approach, the implant is surgically placed into the bone
  • The gum tissues cover them.
  • The implant is left to heal under the gum
  • After a few months, a second surgery is done to attach an abutment and temporary restoration.

Endosteal implants are the most commonly used type for two-stage procedures.

During the Procedure

Here is what to expect during dental implant surgery in Crete:

  • If necessary, the surgeon will extract any remaining tooth before the implant placement.
  • Local anesthesia will be administered to numb mouth.
  • The surgeon will make an incision in the gums to expose the underlying bone.
  • For an endosteal implant, a special drill will be used to create a space in the jawbone.
  • The implant will be carefully placed into the prepared hole and secured.
  • The incisions will be closed with one to two stitches.

For immediate load or All-on-4 techniques, a temporary crown is placed on the implant.

The implant requires weeks of healing before the permanent crown can be placed.

Recovery After Dental Implants in Crete

The level of alertness experienced after the surgery varies depending on the anesthesia used. During the recovery period, you may experience common symptoms such as:

  • Pain at the surgical site
  • Swelling of the face or gums
  • Bruised gums or skin
  • Minor bleeding

After the surgery, your dentist may prescribe pain medications to alleviate any discomfort. You will need to take soft foods for seven to 10 days to facilitate healing.

However, the duration of healing depends on factors such as

  • the number of implanted teeth
  • Bone health
  • overall health

While the implant is healing, the dentist prepares a realistic crown to place on the implant. Once the implant has fully healed, the crown is connected to the abutment.

You have several options when replacing one or more missing teeth, including dentures and implants. However, the choice of the right solution depends on factors like:

  • Price
  • Personal preference, and
  • Your jawbone and remaining teeth's health.

While both options serve the same purpose, dental implants offer several advantages over removable dentures. Discover the advantages of dental implants over dentures in the next section.
