General questions about implants
Is implantation a painful procedure?
This kind of surgery is usually performed using a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel anything in the area we work on. Naturally, we will also perform under regional or general anesthesia if you wish. Should you experience any negative after-effects, please contact us and tell us about it.
We will be glad to help.
How durable are the implants?
The implants we use are produced by the Straumann company. Long-term studies showed that after 10 years 95% of their implants are still working perfectly. However, it is a precondition that the treatment is carefully planned and expertly performed. At good general health, regular control by an expert and thorough dental hygiene, an implant can last the rest of your life.
Is there an age limit to implantation?
Basically, there is no restriction. However, the growth phase must be completed because implants can interfere with the regular growth of the jaw bones. Therefore, this technique is not available for children and teenagers.
