Please Summarize the Steps of Getting an Implant
To start the procedure of getting an implant at our clinic, we need to well diagnose each case and create a treatment plan that we present to the patient. A recent and as accurate as possible X-Ray is needed. The first X-Ray is taken in the home country of our patient, so the patient will receive his complete dental treatment plan before even getting his air ticket to Kaunas, Lithuania. The dental treatment plan will include every aspect about the cost, time needed to be spent in Kaunas, Lithuania or other important details every patients needs to know.
Please Give a Quick Description of the Surgical Procedure
Generally speaking, having implants fitted is not at all painful. Just like any surgery, there can be some discomfort.
Local anesthesia and patient sedation are used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. Most of our patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.
After the anesthesia, the gum is separated and the implant is inserted and then covered by the gum. The abutment is attached at a later date. The implant must be left for 3 months. This time is called the osseointegration phase, when the patient will have some type of temporary replacement teeth, so that the patient never has to be without teeth during treatment.
When the abutment is in place, a new impression is made. This is almost the final stage of the tooth implant procedure. Based on this final impression, our dental technician partner will carefully craft the dental crown for the implant. The crown is the artificial tooth that will be attached to the implant abutment. We require special attention and communication with the patient, to ensure the right colour and shape so that the new tooth looks like the surrounding natural teeth.
When the crown is ready, we simply attach it to the dental implant, and the surgical procedure is over.
How Much do Your Procedures Cost?
Cost of Straumann dental implant – 750 EUR ($835 USD)
Costs of prosthetics after implantation (3 months term) – 400 EUR ($445 USD)
How Many Trips Are Required for 1-2 Implants?
For all our patients it is required two visits. First is for the implant placement and this stage will require a 2-3 days visit to Romania, to assure the after surgery check-up. The second visit is for prosthetics stage – dental crown on implant, after 3 months from first visit and will require a 7-8 days visit for one or two implants. Also for more implants the length of stay varies very few for both visits.
How Long is the Healing Period?
Healing times for implants vary depending on the quality of the patient’s bone and are often extended in cases where performing adjunctive procedures is necessary. In general, dental implants require three to six months for the bone to heal (without being exposed to extra forces from biting). Over the last years, the mechanism of bone attachment to titanium has improved the healing process which helps to shorten the healing period.
What do Your Patients do if They Have a Problem?
We pay the greatest attention possible to the initial phase, starting from request a very recent X-Ray as accurate as possible, followed by the right type of implant suitable for the patient. If these steps are fully completed correct, I trust there should be no problem for any patient. There are cases when problems can appear even to any great experienced dental implant specialist, but the only problem we have in mind is the loosening of the crown on implant, which for us is a simple procedure and could be fixed at a local dentist.
We offer great value to communication with all our patients all the time, starting from the first contact and even after the treatment is completed. We also request all our patients to visit a local dentist every 6 months for simple checkup and prophylaxis in order for the dental implants life to be extended to maximum.
What Other Costs Are Involved?
The following additional expenses are included: roundtrip air ticket to Kaunas or Vilnius (100 km from Kaunas), 3-4 star hotels close to our clinic in Kaunas start from $40-45/night including breakfast.
