Dental Implants Abroad? What are dental implants?
When you have a dental implant abroad it is made of titanium, and is a substitute for the tooth root. Dental implants are usually the best treatment for missing teeth.
The dental implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone, and become a strong foundation for new replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth, or for an implant-supported bridge or denture with multiple teeth.
This is the closest you can get to natural teeth, and they will allow you to eat, smile, laugh and talk without worrying about your teeth.
Dental Implant – A cylindrical post, made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root.
Abutment – A connector, placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
Crown – A replacement tooth, custom made to match your natural teeth.

Treatment process and time?
STEP 1 First we make a plan
We do a thorough examination, followed by a CBCT (3D) scan. Based on this, the surgeon will determine the best position of the dental implant, and to see if bone health, height and thickness is correct for the dental implant. After this, you receive a treatment plan, with all expected procedures and costs. We will then talk it over, and all questions will be answered. All this usually takes about 1 hour or more. It is often possible in one visit, to put dental implants after extraction of a tooth. But this will be determined by the dentist in each case. Examination, consultation and treatmentplan are free, if you also start treatment.
STEP 2 Placing the Dental Implants
The dental implant abroad is put in the best position in the jaw bone and lies below the gum tissue. The implant is left to integrate with the jaw bone for about 3 months. You can have a temporary tooth denture during that time so that you never have a gap. Implants are put under local anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain, but you may feel some discomfort during the next few days following the surgery. This is usually due to the few stitches you will have, and the normal healing process. Depending on how many dental implants you will have, it can be done in 1 short visit of an hour, or over 2 days.
STEP 3 Abutment placement
When the healing has taken place, the implant is exposed and the abutment is put to connect the dental implant to the future dental crown or bridge. The abutment connects the dental crown to the implant. Abutments are put under local anesthesia. If no bone grafting is needed, step 2 and 3 can be done in one visit!
STEP 4 Putting the permanent Crown, Bridge or Denture
Impressions are taken for the new implant crown, or dental bridge. The dental technician then makes the new dental crown or bridge with great attention to detail. Then the crown and dental bridge are fitted and you have your new, beautiful smile! This will take from 3-6 working days, or it can be done in 2 short visits to the dentist abroad in Poland. You should know that the above examples are only a guide, and it can vary from patient to patient.
Losing a tooth can be stressful – but remember that you have different options, including cheap dental implants abroad. It might seem scary when reading about it, but there is minimal pain, risk and discomfort and the results are a strong and natural looking tooth.
Do you have enough bone for the Implant?
Some people do not have enough bone to support the dental implants. Don’t worry, if this is the case bone augmentation and/or sinus lift will be done to correct this.
This simply means adding bone to the jaw where it is needed, by using synthetic materials or your natural bone.
Sinus Lift (Sinus Augmentation or Sinus Elevation)
Back teeth in the upper jaw are the most difficult to restore. When the back teeth in the upper jaw are missing, the natural bone deteriorates over time. A sinus lift which is a bone-augmentation procedure for patients who have insufficient natural bone in this area where you will have your dental implants abroad. Here bone is added below the sinus so that one or more implants can be placed. After the bone has been given time to develop, usually from 3 to 9 months, dental implants can be put in place.
Regular checkup’s are important because small problems can be corrected before they become big ones.
We recommend a visit at your dentist abroad, or a local clinic where you live (which is necessary as well to claim your guarantee) If you choose to have a dental checkup done where you live, you need to have documentation for this.
