FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE IMPLANTATION PROCESS?

Our clinic uses a modern implantology centre; therefore the actual implantation process is no longer a demanding experience for the patient.

The process consists of three phases – firstly, the patient needs to consult their issues with the dentist in order to design a concrete treatment plan, then the actual implantation occurs and approximately after two months the crown can be placed on top of the titanium root.

IS THE IMPLANTATION PERFORMED IN NARCOSIS?

It is not. Implantation, same as any other dental treatment provided at our clinic, is performed in topical anaesthesia. We, however, use a two or three-phased anaesthetic application. At first we cover the area we are about to treat with an anaesthetic spray in order to numb it before we use topical anaesthetics.

For patients who experience stress when visiting a dentist we also offer a so called analgosedation, which means that the patient received a special medicament prior treatment which calms them down. Patient then feels at ease and feels no pain or stress.

CAN I HAVE AN IMPLANT WHEN HAVING PERIODONTAL DISEASE?

Technically speaking, yes you can; however, the periodontal disease has to be treated first and the bone has to be re-built through methods such as so called bone grafting. Once you treat your periodontal disease and the bone in your jaw is re-built, you can receive a dental implant. 

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS PERFORMED WITH DENTAL OPERATING MICROSCOPE?

The microscope enables to ascertain the exact location of root canals, their throughput, flections and any other possible anatomic specifications of the patient’s teeth, which are usually not detectable by naked eye.

Full visual control during such treatment enables to truly remove only the infected parts of the tooth and to safely preserve all healthy tissues

Treatment performed with the use of dental operating microscope decreases the risk of breaking the file inside the root, as well as the risk of perforation (creating a false root canal in the tooth) or of overlooking other infected root canals

Even quite complicated treatments can be performed with the use of dental operating microscope, as well as repeated treatment (when the root canal had already been treated once before), removal of the fragments of broken files which could have stayed in the root canal after previous unsuccessful treatments etc.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE?

 The procedure occurs in the dentist’s office, it is performed by a dentist himself and overall takes up to two hours. The whitening works in three to four stages, depending on the patient’s expectations – the dentist applies whitening gel on patient’s teeth and lets the UV lamp affect it for 15 minutes – this allows the patient to monitor the effect throughout the whole treatment. Regarding the result teeth colour, that depends on patient’s natural teeth colour and their life style. Generally speaking, the system is able to whiten the teeth up four tones.
