Dental Implants in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dental Implants Dubrovnik, Croatia

About dental implants

Dental implants are like artificial roots for teeth.

They are placed in your jawbone to support replacement teeth when you have missing ones.

They help you eat, talk, and smile like you did before.[4]U.S. Food & Drug Administration
Dental Implants: What You Should Know
“Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person’s ability to chew or their appearance.”
View in Article


Step 1: Evaluation

First, the dentist examines your teeth and jawbone.

This is done to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants.

Step 2: Preparing the Jawbone

Suppose your jawbone is not strong enough or lacks sufficient space.

Then you may need a bone graft to create space for the implant.

Step 3: Implant Placement

The dentist will make a small cut in your gum and create a small hole in the jawbone.

Then, they will carefully put in an implant that looks like a metal screw.

It takes the place of your natural tooth root.

Step 4: Osseointegration

After the implant is placed, your jawbone needs time to heal and join together with the implant.

This process, called osseointegration, takes a few months.

Step 5: Abutment Placement

Once the osseointegration is done, a tiny connector called an abutment is attached to the implant.

It links the implant to the replacement tooth.

Step 6: Tooth Replacement

Finally, a custom-made dental crown is created to match your other teeth.

It gets attached to the abutment, completing the dental implant process.

Source: Mayo Clinic[5]Mayo Clinic
Dental Implant Surgery
“During surgery to place the dental implant, your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gum and expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone where the dental implant metal post will be placed…Once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone, osseointegration begins…When osseointegration is complete, you may need additional surgery to place the abutment — the piece where the crown will eventually attach.”

Step 2: Implantation

Placement of Implant posts and temporary dentures.

Step 3: Healing

Next comes the healing phase, which takes about 3 to 9 months.

Step 4: Prosthetics

In the final step, the temporary dentures are replaced with permanent ones.

This is done after ensuring the implants have been properly integrated.

Because dental implants require several surgical procedures, your dentist or oral surgeon will conduct a full and thorough evaluation, including X-rays and teeth models, to ensure the dental implants will closely match your natural teeth…During the Surgery:
