Dental implant solutions for replacing teeth
Do you have missing teeth?
Dental implants, compared to removable dentures, improve patients‘ quiality of life dramatically. They allow for proper chewing and spaking, increase comfort and self-confidence, and reduce bone resorption.
Terenyi Clinic is one of the leader dental implant clinics in Hungary.
Diagnose and plan with digital precision
Before dental implant surgery we examine the patients thoroughly on a basis of a 3 dimensional CT scan and we perform a treatment plan.
NobelClinician Software allws us to diagnose and plan treatments with a new level of predictability and safety. Combining the patient’s anatomy with prosthetic needs helps us to determine optimal implant locations and improve the prosthetic outcome, Optionally we can order a ready-to-use NobelGuide surgical template ensuring that we place the implants exactly where planned.
We can emphasise that placing dental implants is a painless procedure, usually we perform it under local anaesthetics. On demand we can apply conscious sedation by our anesthetist colleagues.
We offer to our patients the most modern Swedish Nobel Biocare implants for exceptionally high initial stability and esthetic excellence and the more affordable, safe-to-use Israelian Alpha Bio implants.
Implant procedures are performed by Dr Agnes Terenyi.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which replaces the missing tooth. The dentist inserts the implant into the jaw bone where the titanium then integrates with the bone. Just like your tooth root did before, the implant then builds a stable foundation for the crown, which will become the visible part of your new tooth.
Bridge or dental implant? - A comparison
To restore missing teeth, one less favourable option might be a bridge. It consists of several replacement teeth that will literally bridge the gap. But using bridges on natural teeth can have several serious disadvantages:
Visible metal rims
Certain types of bridges, made of metal and covered with porcelain, can lead to visible black metal lines at the rim of the bridge when your gums keep receding. An all-ceramic bridge can provide an alternative in such cases. Ask us if an all-ceramic bridge might be a good solution for you.
Grinding down neighboring teeth
Bridges are anchored to adjacent teeth to keep them in place. This means, however, that these healthy neighboring teeth must first be reduced in size.
Effects on jaw bone and gum
When you lose teeth, it disturbs the interplay between teeth and bone. Gum and bone are no longer stimulated well enough due to missing teeth, so your jaw bone starts shrinking and your gum pulls back.
To avoid grinding down teeth and effects on jaw bone and gum, we can replace the tooth root to create a completely new tooth with a dental implant.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants are widely considered to be the most successful method of tooth replacement used today, because they give a number of benefits to patients.
A natural smile A dental implant looks and feels just like your natural tooth. The color, shape and contour of the new tooth can be made to match. The result is a natural smile, that can bring back your confidence and quality of life. With your new teeth sparkling on the outside, you will soon feel a smile coming back on the inside.
Eat and speak normally
Did you have to give up on some of your favorite dishes since you lost your teeth? Or do you feel self-conscious when talking to your colleagues and friends, because missing teeth or dentures make it more difficult to speak clearly?
Dental implants bring back the full function of natural teeth. So no matter how hard, crunchy or sticky the food, dental implants can put it back on your menu. And they can restore your clear speech for the next business presentation or long chats with your friends.
Neighboring teeth stay intact
Other restoration methods often require neighboring teeth to be ground down to anchor the restoration in your mouth. Dental implants do not harm neighboring teeth.
Stable and comfortable fit
Since dental implants are fixed to your jaw bone, they are usually more stable, more comfortable and long-lasting than other restorations. On top of that, dental implants are made of biocompatible materials, which means that your body tolerates them.
A long-lasting and proven solution
Dental implants are very durable. With proper care and good oral hygiene, implants will last for many years or even a lifetime. Decades of research have gone into their functionality and stability, since the first patient received modern dental implants in 1965.
Implant treatment can be considered a long-term investment into your health and your wellbeing - in short, an investment into your life. Compared to other restorations, costs can seem higher at first glance. However, higher maintenance costs, the potential increase in lost jaw bone, and, ultimately, the loss of even more teeth can make other restorations more expensive in the long run.
