Coupled with extensive views over the Adriatic Sea, it is a city that you can enjoy to the full either as a regular or dental tourist. It’s also a great location for a holiday—and with the wider countryside and nearby islands you can easily take a ferry to, there is even more going for it.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

It is generally accepted that dental implants are the best way of replacing missing teeth. They are permanent, and feel, act and look like your own, and providing you have a good dental hygiene routine should last a lifetime.

However, there are some situations where you may not be considered a good candidate for dental implants.

Firstly, if you suffer from bone loss (usually as a result of advanced periodontal disease ) then you will not have enough viable bone for successful implant placement. This is not necessarily the end of the line for the implant procedure, as it may be possible to augment the bone with a bone graft procedure. This is an additional treatment and will need to be carried out 6-12 months’ before the implant procedure.

Secondly, if you are a smoker, many dentists will not consider you for a dental implant procedure. This is because smoking affects the healing capabilities of your body, which compromises the success of your dental implant treatment.

Finally, a number of other health issues could be problematic for dental implants, such as uncontrolled heart disease, diabetes or cancer, which is why it is important you are straight-up with your dentist, advising them about your medical history and any medication you are taking.

How Long Does the Dental Implants Procedure Take?

The dental implant procedure is carried out in two stages, so you will require two trips to the dentist in Zadar. During the first trip, the dental implant is inserted into the jawbone. This typically takes place under local anaesthetic, and involves the dentist making a small flap in the gum above the jaw where the implant is being inserted. A small hole is made in the jaw bone and the implant put into place. The gum flap is stitched back over, usually with dissolvable stitches, so that after a few days there is no evidence of you having had a procedure as the implant is below the gumline. This is left in place for several months to give the implant time to fuse with your jaw bone in a process called osseointegration.

After a few months, it will be time to return to the dentist in Zadar to have the final part of the implant procedure. This is when the false tooth (crown) is attached. The dentist will give you a local anaesthetic to numb the gum and open it above the implant. An abutment is attached, which enables the attachment of the crown to the implant. Once the crown is placed, the procedure is complete.
