Replacing one or more teeth? Get a

Dental implant

A dental implant is a replacement for one or more missing teeth. The dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is attached to the jaw through a small operation and a crown that is placed on top of the screw. Titanium screws are used because it is a material that the body rarely rejects.

After a healing period of a few months, the dentist will place a porcelain crown on the implant.

We ensure you get the very best treatment

An examination at the dentist will determine if an implant is the right treatment for you. A dental implant can be made so that you cannot see or feel any difference from your own natural teeth, and the treatment does not involve other teeth in your mouth, unlike a bridge.

Is an implant the right
solution for you?

Almost anyone can have implant treatments, but there may be individual circumstances that make an implant treatment not the best treatment. In this case, a dental bridge may be the right solution.

How implant treatment works

A complicated implant treatment is always performed by our skilled dental surgeon.

We always perform a thorough preliminary examination with X-rays to assess whether you have enough jawbone for implant treatment. If you don't have enough bone, in most cases we can use artificial bone.

On the day of surgery, the implant is inserted. The surgeon makes an incision in the gums and drills a small hole in the jawbone through the opening. The implant is screwed into the hole and the gums are sewn together. You will usually experience little discomfort after the surgery, which is performed under local anesthesia.

In most cases, the dentist will let the implant heal for 2-3 months to allow the jawbone and implant to grow together. After the healing period, the dentist will take impressions for the crown that will restore the missing tooth.

At the last visit, the crown is attached to the implant. You will receive thorough instructions on how to keep the implant clean. Once the implant treatment is complete, you should come for your regular check-ups in the future. Your dentist will also check and adjust your oral hygiene if necessary. If your gums become inflamed, there is a risk of the implant coming loose.

How long does a dental implant last?

We generally experience a very long lifetime for dental implants at PLUS1. Perhaps for life.

Good oral hygiene is crucial for the durability of an implant. In rare cases, an inflammatory condition can develop around the implant, which can lead to implant loss.

Important factors that can reduce the durability of an implant: 

  • Smoking
  • Periodontal disease
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Weak jawbone
  • Strain due to hard bite
  • Missed check-ups.

Studies in recent years show that approximately 95 percent of all implant treatments still work after 10 years.

We always advise you after a thorough examination to make sure you get the treatment that is the best option for you.

What does a dental implant cost?

The price of a dental implant can vary slightly depending on whether it needs to be built up with extra bone.
