Frequently asked questions
After your practitioner’s treatment plan is approved, and depending on your specific case, your expectations and your budget, your treatment is carried out in 4 main steps:
- Preparation: extraction of the teeth that cannot be preserved, descaling and cleaning the remaining teeth and gingiva.
- Placement of the implant(s).
- 3 to 6 months for gingival and bone healing.
- Manufacturing and placing the final prosthesis.
The duration varies according to the extent of the surgical procedure and the type of prosthesis placed; the treatment usually takes a few months to complete. In some cases, the prosthesis can be fitted right after the implant placement.
To avoid sensitivity or pain, the implant is surgically inserted under local anesthetic, and your doctor will prescribe a suitable premedication for you. In most cases, you can go about your everyday activities the next day: work, sport, leisure…
Dental implants and related prosthetic components are made of medical titanium in accordance with ISO 5832 and ISO 10993. The origin of the raw materials is controlled, certified and traceable for any batch in compliance with ISO 13485, ISO 9001 and the European directive 93/42/EEC, in order to obtain CE marking.
The current success rate can reach 98%.
Treatment fees depend on several factors:
- The number of teeth to replace
- The number of implants to place
- The complexity of the case to be treated
- The type of prosthesis to place
Therefore, you will have to ask your dentist for a quote for surgery (implant placement) and for prosthetics (crown or denture) before the start of treatment, so that he can provide you with a solution suitable for your budget.
