What Are Dental Implants?

A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically affixed to the jawbone. Over time the implant fuses to the bone and provides a stable anchor to attach a non-removable replacement tooth (crown), or even a set of replacement teeth. Crowns are colour-matched to your natural teeth, and to all appearances look, feel and act just like your own.

Dental implants are durable and light, and if you look after them correctly can last a lifetime. Just like your own teeth, implant-supported teeth can still be damaged by poor oral hygiene, gum disease and damage caused by trauma, so you will want to take care of them. They don’t require any additional special care than your own teeth, just brushing, flossing and your regular dental check-up.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

By far, the biggest advantage of dental implants is they are the ideal replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. They are permanent, strong, durable, stable and mimic your own teeth perfectly, but without the susceptibility to decay. 

They eliminate the need for removable dentures, dispensing with removing, soaking and cleaning and requiring no messy adhesives. Dental implants make it easier to chew, talk and smile in comparison with dentures that some people find difficult to adapt to. Ill-fitting dentures are uncomfortable, whereas a dental implant feels exactly like your own tooth.

Removable dentures can be supported by dental implants and provide a secure base to prevent your dentures from moving, thus improving comfort and confidence. There is nothing worse than wondering whether your dentures are going to slip if you chew or smile.

From a health perspective, dental implants may help prevent gum recession and bone lossand they can help prevent wrinkles. If you don’t replace a missing tooth the soft tissue of your lips can sink into the gap and cause a permanent wrinkle! 

Functional, beautiful and with health benefits, dental implants provide a long-term solution for missing teeth. Unfortunately, the cost prevents many people from having the procedure–but now you can get affordable dental implants in Hungary and bring back your beautiful, natural smile.

What Is Involved in the Procedure for Dental Implants?

A dental implant procedure in Hungary usually consists of three parts, usually involving two visits to your dentist. The first is the implant itself, which is inserted into the jawbone. The second is called the abutment, which is a post that attaches the crown (false tooth) to the implant–and the third is the crown itself.

On your first trip, the implant is inserted, usually in one day. If you've had one or more extractions, your dentist may want you to stick around for a couple or three days after the procedure to ensure everything is as it should be before you return home.

After the implant is inserted you normally need to wait for between three to six months for osseointegration to take place. This is when the implant fuses with the jawbone and provides a firm and stable base for the crown to attach.

When you return for your second visit, the abutment is inserted and crown fitted.

How Long Do Dental Implants Take in Hungary?

The process for dental implants in Hungary typically involves two trips to your dentist over four to six months. For each trip, you will need to stay in Hungary for between three and five days. 

Most patients are able to resume normal activities the day after the placement of implants.
