What is dental implantation?
It is an operation to restore a missing tooth, involving the insertion of:
- a dental implant, which replaces a tooth root and is screwed into the jawbone
- an abutment, which connects the artificial root to the crown
- a crown, which is screwed to the implant, recreating the lost crown part of the tooth
What brands of implants do we use?
As a rule, for single restorations and rehabilitation of patients with edentulous jaws, we use Israeli MIS implants (today’s best systems in terms of price-to-quality ratio) and premium quality Swiss Nobel Biocare (upon request).
Why MIS implants?
- Survival rate of up to 98%
According to the manufacturer’s official statistics, MIS implants are very rarely rejected - an exceptionally good indicator.
- Broad model range
It is possible to select the optimal model for each unique clinical case report, and expect well predictable results.
- B++ surface with increased hydrophilicity
It accelerates the process of osseointegration. The implant performs better when the bone volume is insufficient, such as when treating patients with diabetes or osteoporosis.
Non-restorable tooth (extraction is needed)
One missing tooth
2–4 teeth missing in a row
Most of the teeth are missing
Complete adentia (absence of the entire row)
Unwillingness to continue wearing removable partial or full prosthesis
Absolute/UNADVISABLE (implantation is not possible)
blood clotting disorders (hemophilia, thrombophilia, etc.);
allergies to local anesthesia;
systemic connective tissue diseases (osteoporosis, rheumatism, scleroderma, etc.);
tuberculosis in the acute stage;
diseases of the oral mucosa (aphthous stomatitis, Behçet’s syndrome, lupus erythematosus, etc.);
Relative/Cautions (the operation is postponed until the restriction no longer poses a threat)
poor oral hygiene;
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction;
tooth decay, pulpitis, periodontitis;
pronounced atrophy of bone tissue;
diabetes mellitus (compensated form);
chronic alcoholism, drug addiction (surgery is possible only in remission stage);
oncology (implantation is not performed during radio- and chemotherapy).
Single stage implantation
Immediately after the placement of an implant, a temporary crown is attached to the implant. The functionality and aesthetic of the tooth row is completely restored in one day!
After the implant is placed, it is covered with a plug. The patient waits 3–6 months for the artificial root to acclimate to the bone. The plug is removed and replaced by a healing cap only at the end of the osseointegration period, usually after 14 days. Then, an abutment is placed, and later – a permanent crown.
All-on-4 refers to total jaw prosthesis on four implants. Two are placed in the frontal area around the front incisors and two in the lateral areas (they are screwed in at an angle of up to 45 degrees). On the same day, implants are loaded with a fixed bridge with 12 crowns.
If the patient has sufficient bone volume, the All-on-6 method – a modified version of the All-on-4 – can be used. The difference in the number of implants installed for fixed bridges is two in the anterior region of the jaw and two in the lateral regions.
1. Initial consultation
During the initial consultation, the implantologist conducts the following::
- A visual examination of the oral cavity (the condition of oral hygiene is assessed, paying close attention to presence of plaque with calculus, gum inflammation, cavities, or other dental diseases);
- Collects patients medical history (assessment of the patient’s chronic diseases, previous surgical operations, medications taken at the moment, etc.);
- Photometry (the specialist takes pictures of the patient with the mouth open and closed - this information is necessary to select the shape of the crown or a full prosthesis for the entire jaw);
- A condylography (determining the parameters of jaw compression and evaluating the temporomandibular joint - important for further bite correction with new teeth).
In a comfortable setting, the specialist introduces the patient to the identified dental conditions - discussing options for further implant treatment and answering any questions.
If the patient has a chronic condition, the implantologist will consult with the patient’s doctor!
2. Computed tomography
We use modern SCHICK DENTAL SENSORS. With minimal radiation exposure to the patient, the implantologist takes a 3D image of the whole jaw. This provides us with detailed information about the condition of the jaw, and factors such as:
- bone volume (width, height);
- location of the roots of the teeth next to which the implant is to be placed;
- location of maxillary sinuses (for implants on the upper jaw) or mandibular nerve (for implants on the lower teeth).
3. 3D model of the operation
The doctor uploads the CT data to a special computer program. The software selects the location of the implant with a fraction of a millimeter in accuracy – the human factor is minimized. Titanium root model is selected: is length, diameter, thread design. The risk of damaging anatomically important formations during surgery is excluded. The shape of the future crown or full cover denture for 12 or 14 crowns is also modeled.
4. Preparation of a surgical template
To install the implant in perfect projection, we create a surgical template on a professional 3D printer. A stencil in the form of a mouthpiece helps to screw in the implant to a millimeter in accuracy.
5. Sanitation of the oral cavity
Before screwing in the artificial root, the oral cavity must be sterilized. We must ensure there is no source of infection that could lead to inflammation of the tissues around the implant, and hence prevent its engraftment.
The following is carried out at this stage:
- Professional hygiene – removal of plaque and calculus;
- Treatment of diseased teeth;
- Control of foci of mucosal inflammation;
- Extraction of untreated teeth.
6. Bone grafting
If there is a lack of bone volume in the planned implant site, the implant is augmented using one of the following methods:
- Split of the alveolar crest is indicated to increase the width of the bone. This procedure is implemented in cases of insufficient bone width- an implant is placed at the same time.
- Bone block grafting allows you to increase both the width and the height of the bone. A live bone block is implanted, which has its own serial number and is tested for syphilis, etc. Predictable results.
- Sinus lifting is performed to elevate the floor of the maxillary sinus up to 3 mm (closed) or up to 6 mm (open).
An implant is screwed into the jawbone under local anesthesia with absolutely no pain. The operation lasts up to 15 minutes.
After osseointegration of the titanium root, a permanent orthopedic structure is fabricated and fixed.
The advantages of implantation
The advantages of dental implants over removable prostheses include:
- Full restoration of the functionality of the dentition
A removable prosthesis restores chewing ability by only 30%, while a dental implant restores chewing ability by 100%. There are no restrictions in the diet, you can even eat solid foods.
- High aesthetics
Removable prostheses are visible while smiling. Can fall out at the most inopportune moment.
New teeth after implantation look just like your own. People around you won’t know that you have a crown or a bridge on implants.
- Stopping the bone atrophy
While wearing removable prosthesis, the bone does not receive a chewing load and begins to lose up to 2 mm per year. The bite is disturbed, wrinkles appear, the lips are sunken, and diction is impaired.
The implant replaces the root of the tooth, so the chewing load is transferred to the bone – it stops the atrophy.
- Easy care
Unlike removable prosthesis, implants are as easy to care for as your own teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dental implants last a lifetime if the implantologist makes no mistakes during the placement of the titanium root, and if the patient strictly followed the rules during the rehabilitation period.
No, you don’t have to worry about pain during your procedure. Before surgery, the patient is given an injection of local anesthesia, which eliminates pain during surgical manipulations.
The best option is to place an implant using a two-step protocol – if it is a molar – or a one-step protocol if the tooth is not in the smile zone. The implant completely replaces the tooth’s root and restores 100% of the chewing and aesthetic functions of the tooth row without affecting the neighboring units. No other method of restoration can boast this.
At Svetlana Dental & Esthetic Center, we use MIS implants with increased hydrophilicity and load them with a ceramic crown.
In such a clinical situation, it is a good idea to get an implant-supported dental bridge. This is an orthopedic structure consisting of three or more crowns. It is supported by implants screwed into the jawbone. The bridge allows you to get rid of dental defects in both the front and the sides of the jaw.
The benefits of this solution are obvious.
- The installation process does not involve healthy, neighboring teeth (no need to resurface the enamel and remove the nerve endings).
- Can be used to restore marginal teeth (free-end saddle defect).
- Long service life – from 20 years.
- The adaptation period is 1-2 days.
If there are no teeth at all on the upper or lower jaw (or there are units left to be extracted), at Svetlana Dental & Esthetic, we offer one-stage All-on-4/All-on-6. This method allows the restoration of a teeth row in 1 day without bone grafting, even with average atrophy of bone tissue. Four or six implants are placed in the jaw. Then the implants are loaded with temporary crowns, and after full osseointegration – with permanent crowns (made of ceramics or zirconium).
