You may be troubled by losing your teeth or by the deterioration in the esthetic condition of your teeth. Difficulty chewing and embarrassment during speaking due to poor esthetics may create an unfortunate life situation that has a considerable impact on your everyday mood. If you have these feelings, visit our Denti Implant Clinic!
Our dentistry center can be found in Airport Hotel Budapest ****, near Ferihegyi Airport, Hungary, where, in a pleasant environment, we offer a solution for all your problems, regardless of whether the simplest dental treatment or the most challenging oral surgical intervention is required. The members of our medical team are prominent professionals of Hungarian dentistry, and are led by Prof. Dr. IstvĂĄn Vajdovich, who was the first in Central Europe to do research on dental implantology.
Our main service is placing dental implants, for which we use the DentiÂŽ Implant System, the third most historic system in Europe.
Fillings can be made of the “traditional” amalgam, which is a metal alloy becoming solid at room temperature, or of a mixture of “plastic” and porcelain (white filling), which realistically reproduces the natural color of the tooth, and which is made solid using a polymerization lamp.
Fillings can also be made in dental technical laboratories, in the form of so-called inlays. The dentist takes an impression of the tooth and the cavity formed inside of it. The inlays can be of plastic, porcelain or gold. The dental technician creates the missing part of the tooth, and the dentist affixes it to the prepared tooth surface. The missing part can thus be perfectly restored. This is also the most suitable method for replacing old, extensive amalgam fillings.
The risk of dental caries can be decreased by fissure sealing, a procedure during which the fissures on the occlusal surface of the molars are filled with a tooth-colored, liquid sealant. This preventive method is especially recommended for children and adolescents to seal the fissures of the premolars and molars breaking through the gum.
The most important elements in the prevention of dental caries are, however, proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
Endodontic therapy (root canal treatment)
Root canal treatment means the removal of the inflamed (or necrotized), infected dental pulp from the teeth. After cleaning and disinfection, the root canals are filled. This way, the pain can be stopped, the tooth can be preserved, and the development of further infections or focal diseases can be prevented.
In accordance with the requirements of the 21st century, the primary goal of dentistry at present is not only to regain functionality, but also to achieve an esthetically perfect appearance even in those, to whom nature has shown less grace. With the help of the research done in recent decades, the development of materials and techniques has entirely kept up with the increasing demands.
Esthetic dentistry uses less and less metallic materials. At the same time, the application of non-metallic materials (acrylic resins, porcelain and ceramics) has become widespread in the dentistry practice.
The various tooth whitening methods are of key importance in esthetic dentistry. A pleased, beautiful smile gives confidence, and radiates vitality and the joy of life. As time goes on, and depending on our lifestyle (the consumption of coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco products), our teeth become more and more discolored. Toothpastes advertised as having tooth whitening effect basically cannot brighten the color of the teeth. The method used at the dentist's office is, in turn, safe and effective means of whitening our teeth. Tooth whitening is performed using a gel, which whitens or eliminates the discolorations deposited on the surface of the teeth, with the help of the released oxygen.
This method is used to solve minor issues, e.g. problems with the color, shape or fragmentation of the teeth.
In this case, the desired esthetic effect is achieved by a correction that requires only a minimal loss of own teeth. It may happen that we wish to restore the edge of the central incisor, and the esthetic effect of a simple filling would not be satisfactory. In this case, a part of the external surface of the tooth is removed, and then a thin layer of porcelain (individually designed by the dental technician) is affixed to the tooth.
Currently these jewels are worn extensively. Nowadays, tooth jewels (little chiseled glass, gemstone or golden jewels) are affixed without harming the teeth, and can be removed just as easily. The tooth enamel does not suffer any harm during the affixation procedure.
The tasks of dental prosthetics are to replace missing teeth, to provide some kind of rehabilitation, to prevent the secondary consequences of missing teeth and, naturally, to restore the esthetic conditions that are ideal under the given circumstances.
A proper placement of the teeth is required not only because of esthetic aspects. It is difficult or impossible to keep rotated and jammed teeth perfectly clean. Later, it may lead to the development of dental caries or gingivitis, and to the loss of the teeth.
An orthodontic treatment is ideally performed between the ages of 12 and 18 years. We recommend using a removable appliance until the age of 12 - 13 years, and a fixed appliance after the age of 13 - 14 years.
A certain technique is available now, with which the fixed appliance can be attached to the inner surface of the teeth.
Adults as well can have the alignment of their teeth facilitated. It can be carried out by using appropriate (affixed) appliances.
These prostheses can be removed by the patient without the help of the dentist.
If all the patient's teeth are missing, a complete prosthesis (conventional complete denture) is the solution.
The creation of a complete denture becomes necessary if the patient has no teeth at all. These prostheses are kept in place by the vacuum effect, and wearing them may put a considerable psychic burden on the patient who may consider this condition to be the sign of aging. Initially, prostheses may be inconvenient to wear, but this feeling will cease. Unfortunately, because of the continuous degradation and atrophy of the toothless alveolar crest, rebasing the complete denture is necessary once in every 1 to 2 years, and replacement is required every 5 to 7 years.
A partial prosthesis (partial denture) is used if the patient has a few teeth, but their number is not enough for a fixed dental prosthesis. This kind of prosthesis is created on a metal plate, which is covered with plastic that has the same color as the gum of the patient. The removable partial denture (the so-called metal framework) is attached to the remaining abutment teeth with clasps or hidden retainers (invisible from the outside), or onto the remaining teeth with the help of telescope crowns.
It should be noted here that because of the widespread use of implantation techniques, these kinds of prostheses are less and less frequently applied.
These prostheses are fixed to the burred teeth or the implants with special adhesives or screws, and can only be removed by the dentist.
Fixed prostheses can be made of the following materials
Ceramic crown or bridge bonded to a metal framework
We exclusively use a nickel-free or precious metal (titanium, palladium or gold) alloy as the material of the metal framework that provides a frame for and gives stability to the bridge or crown. (Unfortunately, many dentists in Hungary still use nickel, which has excellent mechanical properties, but causes metal allergy more and more frequently.)
Procedure: The dentist first prepares the tooth, takes an impression of it, and then the dental technician creates the crown or the bridge. Several layers of ceramic veneer are applied to the thin metal framework (which was either cast, created with computer-aided manufacturing or formed using electrophoresis previously), and then bonded to the framework at a high temperature. Thus, taking individual characteristics (e.g., tooth color) into account, a natural esthetic effect can be achieved, which is similar to the patient's own teeth. Additionally, the original masticatory function, the possibility of proper phonation and the harmony of the face can be restored with prostheses.
Metal-free crowns and bridges
These are primarily made of zirconium dioxide (zirconia) or compressed ceramic.
Zirconia ceramic as a base material for crowns and bridges has been developed in the previous few years. It has numerous advantages when compared with metal-ceramic prostheses:
It is metal-free, and does not cause allergy.
Besides its mechanical properties being in many aspects better than those of metals, a prosthesis made of it is entirely esthetic and tooth-colored.
It is biologically neutral (bioinert) and environmentally friendly. It conducts heat and electricity poorly; therefore, dental plaques cannot build up on its surface.
It is permeable to light, and has excellent photodynamic properties.
In case of crowns and bridges made of this material, there is no risk of gingivitis or premature gingival retraction.
Its disadvantage is that it is more expensive than its counterparts, however, it is more modern, and represents an esthetically higher value. There is no risk of developing metal allergy, or a discoloration of the gingival margin near the edge of the metal parts.
Besides prostheses, dental implants and abutment pieces (fitted into the implant to support the restoration) are also made of this material.
It seems that its application has opened a new era in dentistry.
A dental implant is practically an artificial dental root, placed at the site of the missing tooth to support the restoration. An implant, therefore, is not a tooth, although it can make up for a tooth for a long period.
A tooth replacement constructed on an implant has the same function as a replacement based on a natural tooth. Modern implants are usually made of pure titanium (not an alloy) or, more recently, zirconia bioceramic. Because of their excellent bioquality and biostability, these so-called biomaterials can stay in the human body for a long time, without the risk of rejection.
The implant is placed into the jaw quickly, easily and safely, in an outpatient setting and under local anesthesia. (However, other types of anesthesia are also available, if needed.) After their placement, the implants heal within the bone osseointegration). The healing process takes about 3 to 4 months. After this, an artificial abutment replacing the tooth is placed into the implant, and this abutment will serve as the basis of the dental prosthesis.
The use of dental implants has numerous advantages during the prosthetic rehabilitation of dental patients. With their use, prostheses of improved quality, better functionality, and higher esthetic value can be constructed, when compared with the conventional methods of dentistry. This way, for example, patients can wear fixed prostheses (bridges) instead of removable dentures. A similar advantage is that the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth remain intact, and they do not have to be worked on (burred) as part of the prosthetic treatment.
An additional and unbeatable advantage of the implantation technique is that in case of total edentulousness (when the patient has no teeth at all), removable dentures can be replaced by fixed prostheses.
As a result of the leaping advances in dental implantology, there are certain new types of implants available currently, that can receive (under proper conditions) a temporary prosthesis immediately after implantation or in an early period of osseointegration (4 to 6 weeks after implantation).
The implantologists of the Denti Implant Clinic have more than 25 years of experience and practice in performing dental implantation procedures. The high-rate and long-term success of the many thousands of Denti implants placed by them proves that they work with increased care and for the benefit of their patients. We hope that our patients continue to place their confidence in us.
The basic requirement for all dental treatments is a healthy gum, because even the slightest gingivitis may compromise or frustrate precise dental procedures. Besides, inflammatory diseases of the gingiva are proved to have health and tooth damaging effects (focal infections, heart diseases, etc.)
The primary cause of gingivitis is the plaque deposited on the neck of the teeth. If this condition lasts for a long time, the inflammation extends to the periodontal attachment apparatus, the periodontium, and it results in alveolar bone loss. The teeth become loose—this condition is called periodontal atrophy, but it can be stopped or slowed down with appropriate treatment.
The first step in the treatment is to eliminate all factors possibly maintaining the periodontal inflammation. Besides removing dental plaque and calculus, bad fillings as well as ill-fitting crowns and bridges should also be taken out.
The first consultation with the patient includes an oral hygiene assessment. Dental calculus, on the long term, damages the teeth and the gingiva. The deposited calculus and the discolorations are removed from the surface of the teeth with the help of an ultrasonic device or high-pressure cleaning powder. Calculus formation does not take place on a smooth, plaque-free tooth surface.
The long-term success of dental procedures highly depends on maintaining a perfect oral hygiene. Regular and professional oral care requires the knowledge of modern oral hygiene techniques and products. Our dental hygienist will help our patients with this.
Oral surgery procedures
The specialists of Denti Implant Clinic work with great proficiency in every branch of dentistry and oral surgery, possessing a comprehensive knowledge gained during many years of practice. Professional assistants and scrub nurses help them in their work.
The terms related to oral surgery have changed in recent years. To differentiate between oral surgical procedures performed in outpatients and oral-maxillofacial surgical procedures carried out in an inpatient setting, the former are called dentoalveolar surgical procedures.
The state-of-the-art equipment employed at Denti Implant Clinic enables our specialists to treat the disorders and diseases requiring either dentoalveolar or oral-maxillofacial surgical procedures according to the highest standards. Additionally, these specialists provide clinical background for those who cannot be treated as outpatients.
The following are the most common dentoalveolar and oral surgery procedures:
surgical tooth extraction (removal of root fragments and remnants)
treatment or surgical extraction of third molars (if they cause any problems)
root apex resection (to preserve teeth that cannot be adequately treated with root canal therapy or root filling, and to eliminate focal infections)
cyst removal procedures (to remove benign cystic tumors of the jaws or soft tissues in the oral cavity)
sinus closure (if the sinus was opened during tooth extraction)
dental implant placement
sinus lift procedure (with bone replacement, to augment bone mass before placing the implant)
bone replacement procedures (to prepare a plastic surgery or an implant placement)
preprosthetic surgeries and soft tissue plastic surgeries (to create optimal conditions for a dental prosthesis)
treatment of the disorders and the dysfunction of the mandibular joint
treatment or removal of benign tumors of the oral cavity, and benign lesions or tumors of the jaws and the oral cavity
We recommend regular check-ups for our patients, and these are carried out smoothly by the Denti Implant Clinic staff.
We offer a full warranty for every procedure performed at the Denti Implant Clinic.
