The first visit

When you need implantology, you meet with our specialist. During your first visit a treatment plan is drawn up. The following actions take place:

  • General anaesthetic
  • Dental anaesthetic
  • General health questionnaire
  • Thorough oral examination
  • Printout for dental model
  • Bacteria analysis if required
  • Digital photographs of your teeth
  • X-ray of your teeth
  • Explanation of implantology

Based on this information, the dentist will set up a treatment plan for you.


Treatment with implantology:

  1. A small incision is made in the gum under local anaesthetic, exposing the underlying jawbone.
  2. A small hole is drilled into the bone. The diameter of this hole corresponds to the diameter of the implant. The implant is screwed into the bone.
  3. A flat cover screw is placed over the implant and the gum is replaced and secured. The implant can then heal. During the healing phase, the implant integrates with the jawbone.
  4. Healing time depends on the quality of the jawbone and varies from 6 to 16 weeks.
  5. Following the healing phase the flat cover screw is replaced with a higher screw, which protrudes through the gum. The gum around this screw must be left to heal for 2 weeks.
  6. After that we can begin to replace the crown.
  7. The implant is printed and a colour is chosen for the crown.
  8. This crown is manufactured in the dental laboratory and a dental technician usually takes around 2 weeks to create it.
  9. The dentist sets the crown two weeks after it is printed.
