Types of dental implants Hungary

Hungary is getting known as the queen of teeth implants. Are you not sure about going abroad for teeth replacements? Take your time and read everything about  dental implants in Hungary and study the price list of our clinic in Budapest. More options are available on this treatment like crown on an individual implant, implant supported bridge on two or more screws or complete, full arch implant retained false teeth.

Single implant 

This treatment is done to replace one lost tooth. The artificial tooth (dental screw) is placed in the jawbone where the gap is providing the same function as a real tooth root. And an abutment is a crown is fitted to completely replace the tooth.

Implant retained bridge

It is a solution if you have 3 or more missing teeth in a row. At the edges of the gap a screw is placed and they serve as pillars for the bridge. And the bridge is placed on the implant posts not the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap. 

All-on-4 concept

This is a specialized treatment for those patients who miss all teeth in the arch. The method of this treatment is to replace only the 4 necessary teeth with implants instead of replacing every single missing tooth. You can go with the 4 implant method to save money on dental implant cost in Budapest. With this treatment placement of implants are possible without bone replacement and sinus lift, so costs can be kept low.

The All-on complete bridge can have either zirconium or porcelain-fused-to-metal teeth. If it is needed pink porcelain artificial gums are added for the aesthetic look. On the top of the teeth there are the abutments that are the connecting items in between the teeth and the implant screws. The number of abutments equals to the number of implant screws in the jaw.

All-on-6 plan

The treatment procedure is to install the 6 implants in the toothless arch for the upper and lower jaw. The logic is the same as in case of All-on-4 but the plate is retained on 6 implants providing higher stability and durability. In this case bone augmentation and sinus lift might be necessary.

Hungary teeth implants – How long you have to stay in Budapest in case you need tooth replacement

Our patients usually ask how many times they have to come to travel if they come for dental treatment in Hungary.  

To get dental implants placed, on average two visits are needed in Budapest. In the first visit 2 or 3 days must be away from your home, when our dentists put in place the screws. After a period of 3-6 month healing time, you will come again to Budapest, and you will receive the abutments and crowns. This travel requires 4-10 days, depending on the number of caps and implants. If you need a bone replacement or sinus lift, one can imagine that an additional visit is required prior to placement of implants, so in this case 3 visits are planned.

If you send us a panoramic x-ray, we will prepare you a quote that includes the price of  treatment, the number and duration of visits to Budapest.

As people age, they often lose permanent teeth due to accidents, illness, or decay. By age 40, at least one adult tooth is typically lost. This tooth loss affects daily life beyond aesthetics, causing bite and chew disorders. Adjacent teeth may shift towards the gap, leading to further problems in occlusion and appearance.

By age 70, many have lost enough teeth to compromise their ability to bite and chew effectively without replacement. Decades ago, partial dentures were a common solution for those with some remaining healthy teeth. While partial dental prosthesis allowed for improved functionality, they still fell short of natural teeth. However, individuals with few remaining teeth had to rely on removable false teeth, which often shift during eating and speaking, causing discomfort.

Hungary dental implants, the most up-to-date solutions if you are missing a single tooth or several teeth

Implants are made of pure titanium as it suits best to the bone, thanks to its biological, chemical and physical characteristics, and is fully accepted by the human body, which is essential for successful and long term implantation.

Implants, typically made of pure titanium, are ideal for bone integration due to their biological, chemical, and physical properties, ensuring long-term success within the human body.

These artificial tooth roots are surgically implanted into the jaw, serving as a foundation for crowns, bridges, and overdentures. High-quality titanium posts, with a proven track record of at least 20 years, are commonly used.

With diameters ranging from 3-6 mm and lengths from 7-21 mm, titanium implants, commonly screw or cylindrical-shaped, are well-tolerated by the body and have been utilized in human surgery, including dentistry, for decades without causing allergic reactions.

Due to their ability to fuse with the facial bone, titanium implants offer a durable solution for tooth loss, often lasting for decades or a lifetime. Implants inserted decades ago continue to perform effectively, and with proper oral hygiene, those placed today can potentially last a lifetime. Our clinic exclusively utilizes implants from reputable manufacturers with extensive medical histories, ensuring lifetime warranty coverage.

An artificial tooth replacement has 3 main parts: A screw that is inserted in the jaw under your gums, an abutment that is placed in the screw and serves as a connecting item between the screw and the third item the crown.

Implantation is beneficial for all types of tooth loss. If you miss one or two teeth or a whole arch is toothless.

If you have no teeth: You not only lost your teeth but also the joy of real and natural smiling, talking and eating. Moreover toothless you look much older than your real age. It has a negative impact on all areas of your live. The implant based overdentures or complete bridges bring an indefinable positive turn in your life.

If you only miss a few teeth: You protect adjacent teeth with an implant placed in the tooth gap. It is a big advantage since other teeth does not need to be ground down, when the gap is covered and they can be healthy and intact. It is a very important fact for patients.

Some other pros of implants

  • Extremely aesthetic prosthetics and teeth replacements can be made by this method.
  • There is no need to grind down adjacent teeth for replacement, there is no need to lose additional tooth material.
  • It is a durable, decades-old in many cases lifetime solution.
  • It helps restore the original function of the tooth, chewing will be natural again.
  • If there is a lack of back molar teeth, you can avoid wearing uncomfortable removable prosthesis.
  • Aesthetic teeth give back your confidence helping create and improve business and social relationships, and make everyday social interactions much better.
  • In a nutshell, implants help you feel, live and look much better.

All-on-4 and All-on-6 concepts

Conventional dentistry can offer patients solution to all kind of dental problems. The dental prosthesis nowadays regarded as extremely outdated but it was the only solution for those who had no their own teeth any longer. This was the only way for a patient to restore the masticatory function the articulation and last but not least aesthetic appearance.

However, modern dentistry offers new opportunities and with the appearance of teeth screws the circle of possibilities are extended. The so-called All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implant solutions meant a kind of salvation, because despite all the advantages, the removable prostheses were unpleasant, uncomfortable to wear for many patients.

The All-on-4 dental implants can be applied to patients who have lost molar teeth and do not have sufficient jaw bone to place implants to the place of lost molar teeth, but the amount of jaw bone is still sufficient for the front teeth implantation. In this case, the oral surgeon places the implants with a special technique to the front region: the two middle ones straight and the other two slightly slanted. For the healing phase, a perfectly functioning fixed prosthesis is made.

Before-after images of All-on-6 treatment

The All-on-6 method is is based on the same principle, but in this case teeth are not on 4 but 6 artificial roots for greater stability; so this solution can be applied in cases when a greater amount of jaw bone is available, or it can be substituted in certain cases with bone replacement.

After a healing period of 3-6 months, posts are exposed and healing screws are placed to shape the gums. Ten days later, abutments replace the healing screws, and an impression is taken. The dental laboratory then makes a fixed prosthesis based on this impression, which the dentist attaches to the artificial roots. The prosthesis typically consists of 12 or 14 teeth, providing stability and durability for long-term use.

Overdentures offer patients a beautiful smile and significantly improve their quality of life without compromising chewing or speaking abilities. All-on-4 and All-on-6 solutions aim to restore self-confidence and happiness in patients with tooth loss. In our clinic in, we offer a comprehensive range of implant treatments.

All on 4 dental implant

Types of All-on-4 and All-on-6 dentures 

English, Irish, or other foreign patients who have very few or no teeth at all, or that they have are in poor condition and cannot be saved,  usually seek All-on-4 or All-on-6 types . Foreign patients are mostly looking for All-on solutions as a full mouth restoration, so they travel to Budapest for this kind of dental treatment.

All-on-4 types

The All-on-4 dental implants Hungary can be used for completely toothless mouths. A minimum of 4 implant screws are required per jaw, but it can be managed with five or six screws for better stability. The more screws the implant dentist attaches the prosthesis to, the more stable it will be and the more similar to the original teeth in terms of chewing, biting and speaking abilities.

The first All-on-4 solution was developed by Nobel for bone deficient patients so that they too could get a stable, implant-based false teeth without a sinus lift and bone replacement procedure. In this case, the implants are placed in the front teeth and premolar part. However, in cases where this is possible, the dentist may recommend the placement of one or two more screws. If five or six screws are placed in a jaw it is possible that replacement of the bone with a sinus lift may be needed in the molar regions for the most stable design possible.

For All-on-4, there are two basic types. In one case, the denture is attached to the implants with screws, this can only be removed by the dentist in the office. It is called a fixed solution. In this case, the patient cleans the teeth the same way as natural teeth. In the other case, the patient can take out the false teeth himself. It is the snap-on type. For each type, the color, size, and shape of the teeth can be selected by the patient. There are 12 teeth per jaw on this solution.

All-on-4 hybrid denture

In this case, the it is made of plastic is placed on a metal frame. The artificial gum that is attached to the dental prosthesis is also made of plastic.

All-on-4 metallic denture with ceramic cover

In this type of solution, the artificial gum is made of pink porcelain and the porcelain teeth are held by a metal frame.

All-on-4 zircon denture with ceramic cover

In this type of solution, the artificial gum is made of pink porcelain. The porcelain teeth are held by a zircon frame. This is the most aesthetic one. Porcelain teeth do not discolor as easily as plastic teeth, so this one is the most beautiful and durable.

All-on-4 overdenture on implant bar

This is the solution that the patient can take out and clean  himself. This type  should be taken out two to three times a day and thoroughly cleaned.

Images of before-after All-on-4 treatment

Patients often ask if there are any restrictions on food consumption after the new All-on-4 is finalized. There are no restrictions, they can consume anything from day one, so hard, crispy… etc. However, some habituation time should be expected. This varies from 1-2 weeks to 1-2 months per patient.

Bridges or implants?

Before coming to Hungary for treatment, it’s important to consider your options. If you have one or two looth teeth in a row, you might weigh the choice between teeth implants or a three or four-unit bridge. Implants have the advantage of not requiring treatment to adjacent teeth, while dental bridges typically necessitate filing down 40-60% of healthy neighboring teeth to serve as support pillars. While it’s possible to get bridges without altering adjacent teeth, this solution tends to be less stable and often requires replacement within 4-5 years. Consequently, individuals with healthy neighboring teeth often prefer implants over bridges.

But there are still some cases when teeth implants are not preferred and dental bridges are rather recommended.

Pros of Bridges

  1. If you are a stressful person and grind your teeth over the night. This is not good with screws. If you still prefer implants night guards should be worn.
  2. If you have immune system diseases.
  3. If you suffer from cancer of any type.
  4. If you have serious bite disorders.
  5. If you smoke. It is true that smoking is not grounds for refusal, but can decrease the chances of successful placement.
  6. If your budget is limited

Pros of implants

  1. It is not needed to file down the teeth next to the gap. (If a tooth is filed down 30-40% of the tooth is lost.)
  2. If you do not want to wear dentures or it is uncomfortable for you then artificial tooth roots are definitely recommended to you.
  3. The condition of your current teeth does not make it possible to place bridge pillars on them.
  4. If you want to bite as hard as you did with your natural teeth.
  5. If you want to have a perfect smile. Because teeth implants look like real teeth.
  6. If you do not want bad breath. Because food leftovers might stick under the abutment tooth of the bridge and it can not be taken out from there. This problem may result in bad breath.

Bridge vs. dental implant?

Implantation is a way of replacing lost teeth. For a traditional bridge two or more pillars are needed to bridge the tooth gap. In case of implantation there is no need such a thing, because to hold a crown a screw-shaped titanium implant is inserted. 

Of course, there are situations when a traditional bridge replacement is the right choice, especially if the implantation is not advised. This could be:

  • Immune system disorders
  • Blood disorders
  • Certain chronic diseases
  • Untreated diabetes
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Severe bite disorders
  • Cancer

Relative contraindications include smoking, which is not a reason for exclusion, but it can reduce the chances of success.
If there is no exclusion criteria, the implant has several advantages:

  • It is not needed to file down neighboring healthy teeth. Filing down involves loss of healthy bone material although there is a variety of techniques causing different degrees of loss.
  • Today if common zirconium caps are placed often 40-60% of the tooth material will be filed down.
  • If you replace a dental gap with a bridge food leftovers might remain underneath. If it is not professionally cleaned, it can cause bad breath.
  • If you do not want to wear removable dentures or find the existing prosthesis uncomfortable there is a solution for you.
  • If the existing teeth no longer make it possible the preparation of fixed bridges, placement of implants can help avoid a removable prosthesis.

As you grow older more and more dental problems may arise causing teeth loss and resulting in jaw bone thinning or absorption. This causes in your elderly ages thinner and sunken cheeks. Teeth implants mixed with bone transplantation can stop this process in a very effective way.

Dental implants Hungary – Let us see the benefits of in detail

Delaying dental care after tooth loss can lead to jawbone deterioration, as constant stimulation from chewing is necessary to maintain bone size and density. Without this stimulation, the jawbone starts to deteriorate. It’s crucial to see your dentist promptly after tooth loss to prevent further deterioration. Note that a three-month healing period may be necessary after tooth extractions before placing a new dental implant.

They can rejuvenate your appearance by preventing jaw structure deterioration and facial structure changes caused by tooth loss. They restore face shape and confidence by providing a stable and natural-looking smile.

How to keep clean your new teeth

Bacteria can easily adhere to the tooth screw and the crown surface (especially at the gum line) from which first a thin film layer (plaque) and tartar forms. These bacteria under the gums and at the bone surrounding the implant may cause tissue inflammation, resulting in weakening the artificial root. Plus it might irritate the adhesive used for fixing the prosthesis on the dental implant.

Dental implants budapest Hungary
Tools to keep your dental implants clean:

  1. Toothbrush (electrical or manual toothbrush)
  2. Dental floss or inter dental toothbrush
  3. Mouthwash

It depends on your implant based solution which tool is recommended.

Single dental implants

If one of our teeth was replaced with a screw, then brush your teeth twice a day at least for two minutes and then use an interdental brush. The interdental brush will help you clean your teeth properly and it will not push accumulated deposits under your gums. 

Implant supported bridge

When a 3 or 4 item bridge is placed on screws, it is not only the implanted artificial root area that must be cleaned but the free-standing crown items must be cleaned as well. To do this – use a special toothbrush after the traditional tooth cleaning. A special single brushed toothbrush can be the most effective way of cleaning the space under the free standing cap item. As an extra you may use a mouthwash as well.

Full mouth dentures on dental implants Hungary

You just apply traditional teeth cleaning such as a single tooth brush, interdental brush and dental floss to ensure a long life. You may also use mouthwash and mouth water to disinfect and boost immunity against bacterias in the mouth.

How to minimize dental implant failure rates?

During the surgery process, a screw made of titanium or titanium alloy is placed in the jaw to stimulate bone growth around the implant. Specially designed surface features on the screw promote better integration. It typically takes 3-6 months for the jawbone to fully grow around the implant, rendering it as stable as natural teeth.

In cases of weak or damaged jaw, bone reconstruction procedures may be recommended by the implant specialist to ensure sufficient bone quality and quantity for successful implantation. It’s crucial for the implantologist to accurately assess the bone condition before proceeding with any dental implant treatment. Therefore, a 3D scan is performed as two-dimensional panoramic x-rays may not provide precise enough information.

Utilizing cutting-edge materials and advanced dental technology, along with expertise from highly qualified  implant specialists, increases the likelihood of successful implantation. However, like in any medical field, 100% success cannot be guaranteed due to potential unpredictable reactions of the human body, even in dentistry.

Can periodontal disease be cured?

Yes, periodontal disease can be treated, but not in every case. The inflammation of the gums can gradually spread to the bone tissue, leading to periodontal disease.

While inflammation of the gums alone can often be stopped and even reversed, once the mandible is damaged, full restoration is unlikely. However, it’s possible to halt further damage to both bone and gums through multiple stages of the healing process.

If you notice symptoms such as redder, swollen, and more sensitive gums, along with bleeding, it’s important to consult your dentist promptly. Most gum diseases can be successfully treated in their initial stages, but if left untreated, they can lead to significant complications.

Are dental implants expensive in Hungary?

There is no doubt that artificial teeth roots are more expensive than other prosthetic procedures. This investment in dental health returns on the long-run. If you get dental implants in Budapest you can save up to 50-60% on treatment including hotel and flight costs. The more implants you go for the more savings you can have as you will have higher discounts from Budapest Top Dental. If implants are properly cleaned their lifespan lasts lifetime, unlike other methods that require replacement periodically. If we add these additional maintenance expenses, and inconvenience of periodical treatments then the one-time cost of dental implants proves a cost-effective solution.

Dental implant cost in Hungary

It’s clear that top brand implants are much more affordable in Budapest compared to England and Ireland. In your own country, a basic full tooth replacement including a screw, abutment, and crown typically ranges from 2000 to 3500EUR, depending on region and implant brand. Additional costs like sinus lifts and bone regenerating materials are not included, with bone grafting materials often more expensive than gold per gram. It is no wonder dentistry abroad is attractive for the Irish and Brits as to live without teeth is difficult.

Single implants

In Budapest, the prices for single implants are remarkably lower. For instance, an Alpha Bio implant costs 449EUR, and a Nobel Biocare Replace implant is priced at 885EUR. Adding an abutment and a porcelain fused to metal cap incurs an additional 516EUR.

Price of a complete tooth replacement with Alpha-Bio implant and a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown

This brings the total price of an implant based complete tooth replacement an with Alpha-Bio screw  in Budapest to as low as 965EUR, prompting many patients to travel for treatment.

Price of a complete tooth replacement with Straumann implant and a zirconium crown

While this price doesn’t include travel and accommodation costs, the total typically doesn’t exceed 1800-2000EUR, considering two visits to Budapest are required.

Opting for a zirconium crown with a Straumann implant, the total cost amounts to only 1255EUR. And treatment is completed by highly trained and experienced dentists.

Before loading the implant with an abutment and crown, a healing period of 3-6 months is necessary, requiring two visits to Budapest. However, for more extensive treatments such as replacing multiple teeth or a whole arch, costs in your country can escalate to 20,000-25,000EUR. Dental implants abroad for those looking for the best options in Hungary are very attractive.

Implant retained bridges – 3 unit

The fee of a screw retained bridge which includes two Alpha Bio implant posts and 3 porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, which is a 3 unit implant retained bridge is  as low as  2,180EUR.

The same implant anchored bridge made of two Straumann screws and 3 zirconium crowns costs 2,816EUR.

Full mouth solutions – All-on-4 and All-on-6

Based on the affordable prices, it’s evident that travel to Hungary for a single implant is a cost-effective option. But what about the savings for full mouth restoration when dealing with multiple or no teeth at all?

When you have only a few teeth remaining, it’s often recommended to extract them and opt for a fixed implant-anchored complete bridge or denture, known as All-on-6 and All-on-4 solutions.

All-on-6

For an upper arch, All-on-6 solutions are preferred due to the importance of stronger chewing ability. The dental treatment costs for an All-on-6 solution with a 12-unit complete bridge using Neodent teeth screws and porcelain-fused-to-metal bridge of 12 teeth is 6773EUR.

For a top-quality All-on-6 with zirconium teeth and Strauman implant screws, the price is 8980EUR.

All-on-4

Opting for an All-on-4 solution for one arch costs 5347EUR with Neodent implants and porcelain-fused-to-metal teeth.

The same structure using Straumann implants and zirconium teeth is available from 6835EUR.

For All-on-6 and All-on-4 solutions, consider higher accommodation costs as the second visit of your treatment will be longer in Budapest. 

If you get All-on-6 procedure then you might need additional treatments like sinus lift  and  bone grafting in the upper jaw that changes the price of treatment. It might change travel and accommodation costs as well as it is not sure that sinus lift and bone grafting can be carried out along with the placement of screws, so an additional visit can be needed to Budapest.

Generally neither bone grafting nor sinus lift list is needed so the total costs of all on 4 for one arch is as low as 5,347EUR. This price includes four dental implants and abutments, dental x-ray, a 3D scan, surgical fees, medications and a temporary teeth and a final All-on-4 denture. So no surprise costs this is why dental tourism is booming.

Please, note, all prices above are only for information. If you send us a panoramic x-ray or you attend a free consultation you can have a tailor-made quotation. Prices above do not include the cost of a 3d scan, that is 90EUR independent of the number of implants you will need.

An alternative to dental implants is bridges

If your teeth adjacent to the tooth gap are healthy then these teeth can act as pillars for the bridge. If you only need to bridge one tooth gap then it can be solved with a 3 item bridge, that is 3 crowns bonded. The dental costs of a 3 item porcelain fused to metal bridge is lower than the cost of a dental implant as it is 3*250EUR, that is 750EUR and you do not need two visits to Budapest unlike in case of implants. Bridges can be made of 4 or even 5 items, so two or three lost teeth can be bridged.

If you miss one or more front teeth then these can be bridged with CAD/CAM zirconium units. The unit price of zirconium is 306EUR. So, if you need to bridge one tooth gap the price of a 3 item zirconium bridge, which is 918EUR is lower than the price of a dental implant with zirconium crown on top. If you prefer bridges then one visit is enough to Budapest. However, bridges do not provide lifetime solutions as they wore in 5-15 years, but dental implants usually last lifetime.

Metal free bio-compatible tooth replacement: BIO HPP (High Performance Polymer) a new technology in dentistry for All-on-4 in Hungary

Dental crowns have been used for over 100 years to repair damaged teeth but the first ones were not really aesthetic. They were gray and metallic colored until the 1950s as no coating was used to hide its artificial nature. It was not only the color of metal units that caused problems but those patients who suffered from metal allergy could not have these crowns at all.
Later different porcelain and zirconium materials were used to give a more natural white look to these teeth replacements. These solutions are really aesthetic, however there was some room for improvement to be more strong and durable.

BIO HPP can be the solution for really aesthetic and elegant dental demands. In dentistry it is already used for individual crowns for dental implants and fixed dentures on All-on-4 procedures.

BIO HPP is also used in other fields of medicine like finger and hip prothesis.

BIO HPP makes your smile more beautiful as it is allergy-free and amazingly elegant: a real bio solution that has unique properties and can be used in many ways.

  • The material itself is white, therefore, the metallic color is not shown at all so patients do not have to worry about greyish gums, either.
  • The material is almost as flexible as natural bone so it can be placed on any tooth let it be a molar or a front one. It is an obvious advantage over zirconium, as zirconium is less flexible, so it can not be applied to molar teeth at all and front teeth if the patient has a strong bite. This flexibility of BIO HPP provides less stress on implants and the bone.
  •  Its chewing surface keeps its shape permanently and does not cause discomfort while chewing and biting. To top it all it is comfortable to wear it. This is why our dentists always use this solution for All-on-4 as it is a perfect choice for high quality implant fixed dentures. The mechanical properties of BIO HPP is very similar to human skeleton.
  • Due to its homogeneous composition it does not get discolored and prevents plaque formation.
  • The solid material made of tiny ceramic particles has a very good polishability therefore it is easy for dentist to prepare.
  • It can be used nearly in all fields of dentistry where tooth replacements are needed like individual caps, bridges on implants, bridges, complete bridges but it is most preferred in case of implant based fixed false teeth like All-on-6 and All-on-4.

Some interesting facts about implants

These are one of the most up to date and most efficient means of prosthetic art. It provides numerous advantages not only for aesthetics but for health and comfort as well. But as usual, in parallel with the increasing popularity of placement of dental implants, the number of misconceptions have spread in public mind discouraging some patients from treatment. Below you can read the five most common misconceptions!

Is placement of implants painful?

Dental services are nearly completely pain free due to more types of anaesthesia. Placement requires oral surgery, so pain indeed occurs, but this is not as bad as we think at first sight. Most patients report that the procedure is not worse than a simple tooth extraction. Thanks to the intervention of local anesthesia treatment itself is almost completely pain-free. For post-procedure discomfort and pain relief some medication is sufficient. Recovery is fast and the next day after check-up dental tourism patients can fly home and return to work. However, each case is different so reactions to interventions and healing time can vary person to person.

Implants are often rejected by the body

Retrospective of 50 years of clinical researches have shown that dental implants have an average of 96% success rate worldwide. To top it all as time is passing by and dental assets and implants get better and better this ratio keeps improving. For example at Budapest Top Dental clinic the failure rate of implants is about 0,5-1%. In other words there is only one failure out of 200 patients. This is due to the fact that implants are made of bio-compatible bone-friendly titanium that can be easily integrated into the surrounding tissue. Therefore, the problem of rejection rarely occurs, no need to be afraid of it if proper oral hygiene is maintained and regular annual check-up is performed!

Implants just for the elderly

A common misconception is that dental implants can only be a solution for older ages. In fact, implants can not be placed for patients whose bone growth has not been finished, yet. After a complete jawbone dental implantation is a possible solution for anyone who is suffering from tooth loss. Diseases like, active gum disease, untreated diabetes, severe heart disease, alcohol or drug abuse or hypertension are also barriers to dental implantation.

Is implantation possible right after extractions and is it possible to receive crowns right away on implants?

It is necessary to do implantation in three stages because after extraction of the teeth it is strictly necessary to wait three months for the bone healing. Over this 3 month period the inflammation surrounding the extracted teeth also resorbs. It is not possible to immediately place implants in the jaw because right after the extractions the dentist could overload the bone which is forbidden by dental protocols. After the indicated healing period, the jawbone grows around the implants and will be stable during the lifetime.

The first stage involves extraction of the teeth and the patient will obtain a temporary denture (no implants) for the first 3 months. To place an immediate temporary denture is necessary for functional and of course aesthetic reasons. The technique is very simple: the dentist takes an impression of the two arches before the extractions. You have to bite on a thick sheet of softened wax to record the occlusion. On the day of extractions, the dentist will already have this denture, and he will finish adjusting it in the mouth.

The second stage involves placement of screws and after the patient will continue to wear his temporary denture during the second bone healing (this is 4 months in this case).
During the 3rd stage, the patient will obtain the final porcelain fused to metal or zirconium crowns fitted on the implants.

Dental treatments and placement of dental implants are always painful

Most dentists define pain as a minor discomfort. Patients are not afraid of minor discomfort. What they are afraid of is pain and this keeps them away from dentists.

At Budapest Top Dental you will experience no pain at all as each stage of your treatment is carried out by anesthesia. We can not guarantee that treatment will not cause any inconvenience, but we want to reassure you, after treatment you will feel that it was far less obnoxious than he expected.

If it is necessary, more effective and stronger pain killers are used or if it is needed sedation can also be applied at some cases.

One or two teeth should not be replaced

The lack of one tooth can upset the balance of dentures. A tooth next to the tooth gap might tilt toward the gap that over time will lead to tooth loss because of the wrong-way load. The tooth opposite the tooth gap due to lack of contact at the opposite side gradually emerges (grows). For this reason, over time this tooth grows towards the place of the missing tooth and gets too big and loose. In other cases, upper and lower teeth can not be properly closed due to small gaps formed after tooth loss. Our dental practice recommends that every dental gap should be replaced by a dental implant within 3-6 months.

Using of bridges are more practical solutions than implants

The advantages of dental implants over traditional tooth replacement techniques are:

By placement of implants it can be avoided that healthy tooth material is removed.

It is not necessary to get neighboring teeth filed down when preparing a bridge.

Many people are reluctant to wear removable dentures. For them a fixed denture is the solution by using dental implants.

The success rate of dental implants at our clinic is 99,5%.

What is the dental implant made of?

The implants are made of pure titanium-alloy. These titanium dental implants due to the special biological properties is capable of integrating with bone tissue. This material is fully accepted by the patients’ body. Clinical experience has shown that allergic reactions have been very rarely reported.

In the last 50 years the material is widely used in medical operations. It is used for hip prostheses or to unify broken bones and of course for dental implantation. The recent period has proved that titanium does not cause any damage to your body (very rare allergic reactions are reported). As a result, a couple of million times titanium is used for implantation worldwide with a success rate over 96%.

Thanks to its high quality dental implant surgery is getting more and more spread.

With good techniques and properly executed treatment screws can last for a lifetime.

Why is it worth having a full set teeth?

Worldwide, incomplete sets of teeth are prevalent, often due to people prioritizing spending on electronic gadgets over dental health. However, teeth gaps can lead to various issues, including aesthetic concerns and difficulties in speaking, which can impact both personal and professional life.

Furthermore, incomplete sets of teeth may contribute to the development of diseases such as Alzheimer’s or memory impairment. If a missing tooth is not replaced, surrounding teeth can shift, making it more challenging to replace the tooth properly later on. In cases of complete tooth loss, fixed prosthetic solutions like All-on-4 can be employed, where implants are inserted during tooth removal and a denture placed after a few months of healing.

Additionally, dental gap can lead to bone deterioration over time, affecting facial structure and making individuals appear older. While dentures and bridges may provide temporary solutions, jaw deterioration may eventually necessitate cosmetic treatments to maintain facial shape.

Dental implants not only restore chewing ability but also integrate with the jawbone, stimulating its growth and helping maintain facial structure, preventing individuals from appearing older than they are.

The All-on-4 procedure offers a time-saving and cost-effective alternative to traditional dental implantation, potentially saving up to 30% on costs, especially as bone augmentation procedures may not be required for back teeth.

Professional dental labs play a crucial role in the success of dental restoration works, alongside oral surgeons. Prices for implants can vary widely, akin to purchasing a new car. Budapest Top Dental ensures peace of mind for patients by utilizing top-quality implants with lifetime warranties.

Steps of placement of implants

Prior to implantation

Patients undergo a thorough medical examination followed by oral hygiene treatment to remove tartar and plaque. Digital x-rays and three-dimensional CT scans are  used to create a precise treatment plan, providing detailed images of the jawbone. Patients receive comprehensive information on treatment options and potential risks before accepting the plan.

The implantation procedure

It is performed under local anesthesia, the dental professional gently pushes the gum aside and marks the planned location of the screw in the jaw. Drilling is carried out with a special device, and the titanium screw, larger than the hole diameter, is securely inserted into the bone. Additional bone replacement may be necessary according to the treatment plan. The duration of the operation varies based on the number of implants and other factors, ranging from ten minutes to three hours. After insertion, the implant is sutured over the gums. Swelling and mild pain may occur for two to three days post-operation. Stitches, if used, are typically absorbable, eliminating the need for removal. Patients can wear temporary dentures one week after surgery.

What does template navigated dental implantation mean and what is it good for?

There can be situations when the dentist need to insert the implant in the jaw with the maximum possible precision. It is the case for example when a front tooth is replaced and due to aesthetics the position of the implant does matter so that crown can be fitted really perfectly or you need to have a lot of implants in one jaw.

In this situation a template guided implantation technique is applied.

The first step of the process is that an impression is taken of your jaw where implants are planned to be placed. A 3D scan is also prepared.

The second step is that with the aid of a special software the dental sugeon designs very precisely the place of the screw along with the cap in the jaw. Using this method neither vein and nerve nor other teeth or the sinus will be damaged, moreover the aesthetics will be perfect of the tooth replacement. This special software virtually displays the position of the screw and fitted crown in the mouth including other teeth so your new smile can be seen before anything happens in your mouth.

The third step is, that the dental laboratory using the impression taken of your jaw and the position of your implant set by the software fabricates a drilling template for your oral surgeon. Before placement of implants this template is placed on your jaw. With the help of this drilling/dental implant navigation template the implant will be inserted to the very place where it was virtually planned. This method is generally applied at our clinic when All-on-4 solutions are needed.

Advantages of implantation with this reliable planning are:

  • The intervention of placement of implantation is quicker
  • Healing time after treatment is shorter
  • Bone replacement is not always needed so the whole process of tooth replacement is less expensive and quicker
  • Long term stability of implants can be easily achieved
  • Perfect aesthetic results

What dental implant brands does our clinic apply?

Our clinic only provides the best quality treatment to its valued patients, so we apply high quality dental screws. Our dentists place Alpha Bio and Nobel Biocare and Replace and Starumann implants.

  • All brands are of top and medium quality. Lifetime guarantee (only material) comes with them.
  • All implants are bio-compatible, made of titanium, so patients suffering from metal allergy can even have it.
  • All brands have a medical record over 20 years.

The Swiss-owned company is headquartered in Basel and has been manufacturing and developing dental instruments since 1974. It has a total of 6 factory units in Europe and the USA. Like Nobel, it is  widespread worldwide, with dentists working in more than 70 countries, including Hungary. By 2017, dentists implanted a total of more than 17 million implant screws of Straumann. Straumann dental implants represent the same quality among implants as the Ferrari, the absolute top category, among cars.

Straumann 

Straumann implants are constantly being clinically tested and developed, with an average of 100 scientific articles published each year about their results and developments.

Two main types of implants are manufactured, which are bone level and gum level types.

Thanks to the implants’ special screwing solutions, the implant can be inserted immediately after tooth extraction, and in some cases it can be loaded a few weeks atfer extraction. Loading of an implant is the process when  crowns are fitted so tooth replacement is completed.

If these implants are used for an All-on-4 solution, the implant can be loaded immediately after placement, meaning the denture will be attached to the implants right away!

The special material on the surface of the implant screw helps the bone cells to grow and thus the screw to be incorporated as soon as possible. However, due to the special material, if the implant has been removed from the sterile package, it must be implanted within 30 minutes.

The special 4mm long implant screw  connects to the bones so stable and tight that teeth replacements can be ensured even without bone replacement in the case of bone-deficient jaws. It makes treatments less invasive in lots of cases.

Around the gums, like the Nobel implants, it provides a very aesthetic connection. Therefore, for even more perfect and aesthetic appearance, zircon crowns are often recommended by dentists for this type of screws.

Nobel Biocare 

Nobel Biocare is identified as the world’s number one and most respected dental implant manufacturer and distributor. You can be sure that implants inserted in your jaw had decades of research and development work, this is why the ratio of complaints regarding Nobel Biocare implants is practically zero.

The Nobel Biocare implants are top-line products across the globe. Nobel Biocare already had the first screws when dental implantology was still in its infancy. The result of half a century of research and development is the high quality of dental implants, which is available for millions of satisfied patients around the world.

Nobel Biocare (Sweden), made the first prototype half a century ago. Since then, they have a 35% share in manufacturing worldwide. This fact also proves that the company is the market leader in production of dental implants. This is mainly due to the excellence of products and satisfaction of patients.

Alpha Bio 

The company’s stable background is provided by the Nobel Biocare company, the world’s leading dental implant manufacturer as Alpha Bio was bought by Nobel in 2008. In addition to manufacturing technologies all background services are provided by Nobel Biocare including the quality assurance system  and research development. The company has gained popularity among dentists and patients, thanks to its pioneering solutions, quality and the favorable price of its products. In addition, thanks to the continuous development, they have new products in the market every year.

The Alpha-Bio implant family has many different length and diameter screws so dentists can choose the ideal size in every position. Due to their shape, good stability can be achieved immediately after the removal of the teeth, so there is not always needed healing time after extractions. The average healing time is case-specific, usually 10 to 12 weeks.

Alpha Bio implants naturally incorporate into the jaw bone with short healing time, their insertion is fast and free of complication, and they provide long-term durability.
This type of implant ensures high stability, high quality and last but not least cost-effective.

Straumann, Nobel Biocare and Alpha Bio are the implant brands that our dentists in Budapest place in your jaw. But if you have other implant brands in your mouth like Dio or Zimmer or others we need all information about your implants if you want our clinic to treat those implants like loading them. It is needed, because each implant brand has its own dental tools, they are not compatible with each other. You can have all information about the implants in the implant passport you received from the clinic where your screws were inserted. If the implant passport is not available, then, please, contact your dental clinic for information.

It is worth briefly talking about the importance of vitamin C for your dental health

In this section, we emphasize the importance of proper dental health to prevent tooth loss that can be replaced by implants. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health, although scurvy, caused by vitamin C deficiency, leading to tooth loss, is now rare. Vitamin C is vital for gum and tooth health, with research indicating its role in preventing periodontitis—a serious disease that can result in loose teeth and eventual tooth loss if left untreated.

Vitamin C controls the bacteria responsible for periodontitis and aids in gum regeneration. It is abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly strawberries, lemons, oranges, kiwis, cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potatoes, turnips, bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage. However, caution is advised with citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, and grapefruits, as their high citric acid content can erode tooth enamel. It’s also recommended to wait at least 30 minutes after consuming acidic fruits before brushing teeth to prevent damage to softened enamel.

Some thoughts about possible problems with implants

To maintain dental implants and avoid problems, good oral hygiene is crucial, including cleaning teeth and implants 2-3 times daily.

Our dentists typically use screw-retained crowns on implants, allowing for easy removal for hygiene and repairs. However, this method may lead to crowns becoming loose, primarily with single implants, not implant-retained bridges. If a cap becomes loose, it’s often a simple fix by a local dentist, as detailed information about the implant is provided in the clinic’s implant passport.

Inflammation around the screw is a potential issue, often stemming from poor oral hygiene. Treatment options range from simple steps like removing inflamed tissue to complete screw removal. If implant removal is necessary, it will be reinserted free of charge once healed.

Should you encounter any problems with your implant, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance and guidance on necessary steps for resolution.

Screw retained vs. cement retained crowns on implants

The abutment and the crown/bridge can be fitted to the implant in two ways. One solution is screwing, while the other is gluing with cement.

Send us your x-ray for a quote

In the case of the screw-retained solution, the abutment and the final crown or bridge are assembled by the dental technician. Thus, in the case of screw-retained type the tooth replacement practically consists of two components: implant/screw and an abutment and crown which is put together.

In the case of cement-retained solution, an intermediate piece, an abutment in between screw and cap is screwed to the implant and the artificial tooth is cemented to the abutment. In this procedure, the tooth replacement is made up of three components: implant/screw, abutment and cemented crown or bridge.

Advantage of screw-retained crowns on implants

The advantage of screw-retained procedure is that it provides a soluble connection.

The importance of this is to make it easier for the dental professional to clean it every six months. Those parts of the tooth replacement that come into direct contact with the gums, are more difficult to be accessed for everyday dental care. As a result of it plaque and tartar adheres to these areas. Cleaning of this area is much simpler after  unscrewing and removing the abutment and crown which is assembled. However this cleaning and removal process is only possible in a dental office by a dentist. After cleaning the crown with abutment is screwed back onto the implants.

Another advantageous feature is that, if additional tooth replacement is needed as a result of further tooth loss, screw-retained solution can be easily converted by unscrewing the existing old unit and then insert a new extended bridge.

The ability to unscrew and then screw back the crown offers the possibility of professional cleaning, as no adhesive remains between the gums and the implant, as opposed to adhesive cement-retained fastening.

Fastening with screws will also provide any possible correction needs, as it can be easily unscrewed and re-fixed.

Clinical studies prove, that in the long-run screw-retained solutions show significantly less complications.

The only drawback of a screw-retained version solution compared to a cemented solution is that it is not as aesthetic as the cemented solution. Although this aesthetic issue is more likely to occur on bridges than on solo crowns. Considering the fact that most of the dental implant is required in the molar region, this disadvantage is negligible.
