Please give me a summary of the steps in the process of getting an implant at your clinic.
We have developed a very efficient customer service to make it easy for overseas patients to start off their journey. It is most convenient to contact us via email or the Contact form on our website, attaching your Panoramic X-ray or CT Scan and/or photos of your teeth. We have partnered up with x-ray clinics all over the world, so if you provide us your postcode we can direct you to the nearest x-ray clinic. The x-ray clinic will take necessary steps and directly send us your digital x-ray, or if not a partner, once you give them our email address. We will then be able to offer you a treatment solution. The final cost of the treatment may vary a bit compared to the initial estimated cost because at the time of the physical consultation, for example small cavities, which do not appear on the digital x-ray, could be discovered and treated. All treatments will be discussed with the patient, prior to going further with the procedures. Our patients will never have surprises when it comes to the final cost of the treatment package.
Can you please provide a quick description of the surgical procedure at your clinic?
For dental implants, if needed, it is best to make sure the tooth/teeth are extracted at least two months prior to your visit as the bone needs some time to heal. The procedure involves local anesthesia, a small incision and a series of bone drills in increasing diameters, used to gently prepare the site for the implant placement, the implant coverage with a “healing abutment” and a suture to assure a healthy healing.
How much do your procedures cost?
The cost of the implant (including placement) depends on the selected type, as we offer 3 types of premium dental implants at our facility: Megagen Anyridge – $570, Bredent blueSKY – $690 and Nobel Biocare – $1,065 (no. 1 worldwide) for a dental implant (first stage: implant+placement). Then (second stage) another $510 for a crown on a Megagen implant, $630 for a screw retained crown on Bredent implant and $750 for a screw retained crown on Nobel Biocare implant. The bridge units/crowns cost $375 no matter the implant type.
What payment methods do you accept? Do you offer financing?
For your convenience, we accept all major credit and debit cards, and you can also pay directly through your PayPal account, wire transfer or cash. We cannot accept checks, purchase or money orders, or any payment that must be mailed, and we cannot accept payment over the phone.
How many trips & appointments are required to get one or two implants?
Dental implant treatment usually involves two stages, 3-6 months apart. Suppose patients have enough bone to begin with and do not need a complicated bone grafting, 2 trips in 3-6 months are required to finish the treatment. Patients should spare 3-7 days each trip.
How long is the healing time like for patients who get dental implants?
The healing time for the first stage is from 3 to 6 months, depending on the sites of the surgery and whether bone grafting is needed or not. Dental implants are typically placed in a single sitting though a follow-up appointment may be needed in certain cases.
What do you advise your patients to do if they have a problem with their implant?
The best way to deal with loose implants is to travel back to Cluj and have them looked at by our specialists. Such cases will fall under our exclusive 3 year guarantee for dental implant fixtures, so the implant(s) will be surgically replaced. Our crowns on implants also carry an exclusive 3 year guarantee.
