Frequently asked questions with answers.

When one or several teeth are missing, we have many treatment options to choose from – one of them is implantation. The dental implant is a piece of titanium of various shape, which is implanted in the jaw bone and mandible to replace one or more missing teeth.


“Any piece of titanium can become an implant, the most important is where and how it will be implanted and when it will become functional.”

Professor dr. Stefan Ihde

Basal implants differ from classic implants not only in shape, but also in the surface and place of anchorage. And these differences  make basal implants to be used in a shorter treatment protocol. In practice, these are implants in 3  days.

Immediate dental implant placement

This is the so-called implantation without incision and detachment of the mucosal layer. In this technique, implants are implanted directly through the gums. Thanks to this, during the surgery there is no major bleeding, and the swelling and postoperative pain are insignificant or absent.

We always using method of immediate dental implant placement w when bicortical implants are used.

Implantation through the detachment of the mucosal layer

This means that the implants are implanted after separating the gum and exposing the bones. After the procedure, the gum is sewn again. Sometimes, swelling may appear, but pain usually does not occur.

Implantation directly into the gingival pocket after extraction of the tooth

This makes the subsequent treatments unnecessary, which in turn reduces the risk and discomfort of the patient and saves time and costs.

Professionally performed implant placement procedure is not painful. We usually use local anesthesia, and hypersensitive patients can be additionally sedated (anesthetized)  for the duration of the procedure. In this way, we avoid stress associated with the procedure. In some implantation techniques, swelling and weak pain may occur in the operated area. This is normal tissue reactions after surgery. It can be quickly eliminated with painkillers and anti-inflammatory agents.

The first stage of treatment lasts for 3-4 days. In just 3 days, the patient receives an aesthetic prosthetic work based on stable and firmly anchored implants. But this treatment does not end there. The restoration of normal chewing functions requires the launch of many adaptive mechanisms of the whole masticatory organ. The attending physician monitors their course. The whole process lasts a few to several months so regular check-ups are important.

Anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth, regardless of whether he has diabetes, osteoporosis or a heavy smoker.

Bicortical implants do not require a thick jaw bone. Everyone can be treated, regardless of the degree of atrophy (disappearance) of the bones, there is no need for additional reconstruction.

 Patients regardless of whether they smoke or not, can  undergo implants treatment  without  increased risk of complications.

In a few percent of cases (about 3%), we have to remove the implant, because of non-union:  this means implant does not integrate with bone and remains soft in place.

Even in this case, the implant can be immediately replaced with a new one of different type , keeping the patient’s chewing function.

Before the surgery, we eat a light meal and take our daily medicines – after consultation with the doctor performing the procedure.

The durability and reliability of bicortical (basal) implants have been confirmed by many authors in numerous scientific publications.

Costs of treatment with basal implants are not based on the price of a single implant. Each patient receives a treatment valuation  along with a treatment plan.

In each case, the price-benefit ratio of basal implants compared to conventional implants is in favor of basal implants. This is due to the simplified construction of the implant as well as uncomplicated surgical techniques.

The concept of basal implantology is significantly different from conventional dental implant treatment methods. Therefore, only implantologists with appropriate training in basal implantology can treat patients in a safe and effective manner using immediate loading protocols.

In each case, the patient receives an alternative plan for treatment with classical implants.
