FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS

 

What happens at the first consultation?

Most of the dental treatments start with a consultation. This is the first time when the patient (you) meet the chosen dentist – thus, it’s important what your impressions are. At our clinic, consultation is more than just a simple health check!

During consultation, we’d like to know more about you so that you get the most suitable treatment to your needs. We want you to know that we always take the time to care about you and your problems, we don’t treat our patients on the ‘production line’.

We ask each patient to bring the completed anamnesis sheet (case history) with them since we can only treat you responsibly if we know everything about your health status. There are treatments that cannot be performed during certain diseases so it’s of crucial importance that you carefully fill in the case history form.

Besides thorough medical examination, an x-ray photograph of the patient’s teeth is also made. We make the diagnosis on the basis of these and work on possible treatment alternatives together.

What’s a treatment plan?

The treatment plan is made in close cooperation with your dentist so that you know what awaits you during treatments. This is necessary because that way, even the cost is predictable since only those interventions will be performed which you prearranged with your dentist. The treatment plan is actually a timetable that includes the number of necessary visits and the description of each intervention.

Besides professionalism, the treatment plan is a guarantee for you to receive every necessary treatment without any needless interventions.

How often is it necessary to go to dental screenings?

The majority of specialists recommend that patients visit their dentist every six months or at least on an annual basis. Unfortunately only a few do so since there’s always an excuse: ‘there’s no time for it’ and fear is a powerful argument as well.
Thanks partly to that, Hungary holds many negative records in the field of dental diseases. For example, we are first in oral cancer deaths but various gum diseases are also common amongst the population.
With regular health checks, we can recognize any kind of changes in time – thus, they are pretty well curable. This is the reason why we can’t emphasize the importance of controls enough.
When did you last go to the dentist? Was it more than a year ago? If so, the avoid any further delays and make an appointment now!

Are dental procedures accompanied by pain?

When someone hears the word ‘dentist’ , his/her face is immediately drawn as if with pain. Maybe it’s because of bad habits or pavlovian response, but nobody likes to go to the dentist.
Nobody can be persuaded that dental procedures are painless since it’s possible that everybody bases his/her opinion on a bad experience. It would be an exaggeration to say that a dental treatment is completely painless, since different individual sensitivities may always occur. However, thanks to modern dental instruments and materials the level of pain can be minimized.
We try our best to make our patients leave our clinic with positive experiences and visit us again next time without anxiety.

There are so many toothpastes on the market, which one should I choose?

It would be difficult to tell which toothpaste is the best for anyone. The truth is that the majority of toothpastes available on the market serve their purpose – that is to say they’re no better or worse than others. Thus, if you like its taste and it doesn’t contain anything that you have an allergy to, you can purchase it safely.
If someone has sensitive teeth, it’s worth choosing a toothpaste that is designed for this problem. However, as there’s a huge supply, it’s worth asking the opinion of your dentist so you can confidently buy a toothpaste which improves your condition instead of worsening it.
It’s also important not to use such toothpastes if the given problem no longer exists since it would cause more harm than good.
So, there’s no universal recipe. If you’re fond of ‘green’ solutions, then you can find many of the so-called ‘natural’ toothpastes. For those who want to prevent tooth decay, fluoride pastes are the best solution.
Don’t forget that the duration and the technique of toothbrushing is much more important than the type of the given toothpaste!

Is X-Radiation harmful to my health? What happens if several radiographs need to be done?

In dentistry, one of the cornerstones of modern diagnostics is the x-ray photograph which gives an accurate picture regarding the condition of the patient’s teeth and bone structure. We use the equipments of one of the most reliable manufacturers, the German SIRONA to make panoramic radiograms and intraoral recordings.
These modern machines don’t emit as much radiation as the old, outdated ones so there’s nothing to worry about! Even if we need to make another radiograph for any particular reason, the radiation level is so low that it won’t be harmful for your health.

DENTAL IMPLANT

 

 

Can dental implants be placed next to natural teeth?

Dental implants are routinely placed beside natural teeth and this is generally very safe to do. The only exception to this would be if the natural root was very curved or tilted unfavourably in the proposed path of the implant. This could cause the root to be damaged by the implant, however this can usually be avoided by careful pre-operative planning. If a tooth is inadvertently damaged by the placement of a nearby implant, any resulting problems can generally be resolved by root canal treatment in which the nerve of the natural tooth is removed.

 

Who is suitable for dental implants?

If you have good general health then dental implants will almost certainly work for you. However, habits such as heavy drinking or smoking can increase the number of problems associated with initial healing and thereafter may negatively influence the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant. Remaining teeth might also be compromised making treatment planning less certain.
Some dentists will decline to place implants if smoking cannot be reduced or given up altogether.
If you have any other complicated medical problems that you think might affect your suitability for implants then please speak to us, we will be able to get your situation quickly assessed – it is rare to have health problems that prevent the use of dental implants.

 

How many teeth can be supported by dental implants?

All the common forms of tooth replacement, such as bridges or dentures can be replaced by dental implants. If you are missing just one natural tooth, then one dental implant is normally all that will be needed to provide a replacement. Larger spaces created by two, three or more missing teeth do not necessarily need one dental implant per tooth, however the exact number of implants will depend upon the quality and volume of bone at each potential dental implant site.
Occasionally, it is even possible to join natural teeth to implants with a conventional bridge thus saving the expense of an additional implant.
In the upper jaw, bone density is generally poorer than in the lower and if you have no teeth at all, most treatment providers will want to place a minimum of 8 implants to support a complete arch of 12 or more replacement teeth. In the lower jaw, the bone towards the front of the mouth is often very strong and as a direct result, fewer dental implants may be needed than are required to treat a whole upper jaw.

 

How long does dental implant treatment take?

For routine cases, from the time of dental implant placement to the time of placing the first teeth, treatment times can vary between 3 – 12 months. The availability of better bone can be used to decrease treatment time, whilst more time and care must be taken with poorer bone, which can therefore extend treatment times beyond six months. If there is no reason to shorten the duration of your treatment then be prepared to wait – nobody loses a dental implant from being patient and allowing nature to take its course.

 

Bruxism and dental lmplants

Patients who have a habit of clenching or grinding (bruxing) their teeth may be at risk of overloading their dental implants. For most people bruxism occurs during sleep, which is why they are generally not aware of it. Heavily worn or flattened teeth, chipped enamel edges and/or regularly breaking pieces of heavily filled teeth are the most common clinical signs of bruxism. The effects of bruxism need to be considered during treatment planning and can be compensated for by placing additional dental implants, selecting appropriate restorative materials and providing a night time bite guard to protect the new teeth.

 

Is it uncomfortable when the dental implants are placed?

Most patients will be very familiar with the dental anaesthetics used for routine dentistry and will know how effective they are. Implants are placed using the same anaesthesia. Depending upon the complexity of your case, the operation might take anything from 30 minutes for a single implant, to several hours for complex bone grafting and multiple implant placements. Since the surgery normally involves exposing the bone in the area where the implant and/or bone graft is to be placed you can expect some minor swelling and occasionally bruising afterwards.
For most patients, any of the simple painkillers you might take for a headache will be all that is needed for a few days. If you experience more discomfort than this, contact your treatment provider who can prescribe a stronger medication. During the first few days you should report any unexpected levels of pain or swelling so that it can be assessed. If in doubt always ask for advice, as early detection of a problem will often lead to a simpler solution. You may also be asked to take a course of antibiotics and to follow some simple procedures such as rinsing with salt water or an antiseptic mouth rinse. It is important that you carry out these instructions.

 

What must be avoided during dental implant placement?

Upper Jaw – In the upper jaw, provided the implants stay within the bone that once supported your own teeth there are really no important risk areas. If you have missing upper back teeth then the shape and location of the maxillary sinus (the region above the roots) can be shown to you. The maxillary sinuses can be seen on most x-rays and are therefore readily avoided.
Lower Jaw – In the lower jaw the most important anatomical structure to be avoided is the ‘inferior dental nerve’. This nerve runs from the area behind the wisdom teeth, passes under the molars and emerges onto the skin of the face in the region where your premolar teeth are or used to be. This is why a normal dental anaesthetic produces a numb lip even when the needle was placed right at the back of the mouth. If this nerve is disturbed or damaged during the placement of dental implants it can lead to temporary or even permanent numbness of the lip on the affected side. This is a rare but important complication.

 

BONE GRAFT

 

 

What can causes bone loss?

Whenever a tooth is lost or extracted a considerable amount of the bone that once surrounded the remaining root portion may disappear. This loss can be particularly rapid during the first few months and is described as ‘bone resorption’. Although the rate and amount of bone resorption is highly variable between individuals, it will always occur to some extent, unless specific care is taken to reduce its effects. Sometimes, the simplest measure to minimise bone loss after an extraction is to place the dental implants immediately or within the first few weeks.

Dentures – Many patients report that after a while their dentures become progressively looser and do not fit as well as they once did. Initially the increased rate of bone loss following extractions is responsible for the observed deterioration of denture fit. Over the long-term it is the direct effect of chewing forces that causes slow resorption of supporting bone. Most people who have had dentures for many years will have needed a reline procedure to compensate for this bone loss. Therefore the longer dentures are worn, the more the amount of bone available for dental implants may be reduced.

 

Can dental implants preserve bone?

This is one of the most important features of dental implants. Once in place and supporting teeth, everyday functional forces stimulate the surrounding bone which responds by becoming stronger and more dense. Like all things there are limits to how much work an implant can do. Your treatment provider will be able to discuss this in more detail as it relates to your case.

 

If you do not have enough bone for dental implants what can be done?

So far we have covered the building blocks that are part of routine implant placement. This has included the initial examination and diagnosis, sedation during surgery and what to expect after the implants have been placed. However, for some people, bone loss after the removal or loss of teeth leaves them without enough to secure an implant.
Sinus augmentation – In the upper jaw above the back teeth, it is possible to increase the height of bone available by creating new bone in the sinus. This procedure is called a ‘sinus augmentation’. A skilled surgeon can deliver very predictable results in this location and without the general success of this technique many patients would be unable to have dental implants in a part of the mouth where teeth are so commonly missing.

Onlay grafting – There are many ways in which bone can be added to, however one simple concept is to take a piece of bone from somewhere else and secure it as an ‘onlay graft’ to a deficient area. The new piece of bone will slowly join to the underlying region and when healed and mature, an implant can be placed in a more favourable position.

 

Where can you get extra bone from?

Bone can be harvested from a number of sources such as the hip, tibia, chin and posterior regions of the lower jaw. When you use your own bone to create new bone in another area of the mouth you will have to contend with the discomfort created by the donor site as well as the surgical site. Many people feel this is well worth any additional discomfort as your own bone is normally considered the ‘gold standard’

 

What are the alternatives to your own bone for grafting?

For those who would prefer an easier, but slightly slower solution, there are other sources of bone specially prepared to make them safe for use in humans. All of these materials including your own bone, simply provide a scaffold into which new bone will grow and consolidate ready to receive dental implants a few months later.
New bone can take anything from 4 to 6 months before it is ready to receive dental implants. Do not be in a hurry to move to the next stage. If you need a large volume of bone it will take longer to mature than a small amount.

 

If you do not have enough bone what can be done?

So far we have covered the building blocks that are part of routine implant placement. This has included the initial examination and diagnosis, sedation during surgery and what to expect after the implants have been placed.
