Duration Of Operation
Prior to a MIS dental implant treatment, patients should consider a general check-up because the health condition is very important in the healing process and success of a dental implant. It is also recommended to review your dental and health records with your dentist and inform him/her about any medication you are currently taking. If you have any questions about the procedure or you need to clarify your expectations don’t hesitate to ask. The doctor will provide you with all the necessary information. Additional tests like x-rays or other procedures may be requested before the operation.
How It Is Performed
The MIS dental implant procedure begins with first sedating the patient. Once the patient is sedated, the dentist will create an incision in the gums in order to reach the patient’s jaw bone. With the jaw bone exposed, the dentist will now begin using a small drill to make a hole in the bone, progressively widening it until the implant is barely able to fit. The dentist will use a special additive on the implant itself before placing it inside the jaw bone. This special additive helps with securing the implant in place and speeds up the healing period by stimulating bone growth around it. With the implant placed, the dentist will close up the initial incision with sutures.
In the next few months, the implant’s material will start fusing with the patient’s natural bone – this process is called osseointegration. Osseointegration can last between 3 to 6 months, depending on the patient. In some cases, patients may be required to wear temporary crowns during the recovery period. Temporary crowns can be replaced with more permanent solutions once the recovery period is fully ended.
The average MIS dental implant recovery period can last up to six months, depending on the patient’s state of health. Patients are required to maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist periodically during this period. Caring for a dental implant is similar to caring for your own natural teeth, with brushing and flossing being the norm. Patients are required to abstain from smoking during the recovery period and to rest for the first few days after the procedure is performed. Hard sports are also prohibited during the recovery period.
A MIS dental implant treatment can be very an expensive procedure. Patients should inform themselves properly about the total cost of the operation, taking in consideration also other possible expenses like temporary placements or additional tests. With a proper oral care and with the help of your specialist, dental implants can last for a very long period of time.

How long will my dental implant hurt?
Patients will feel mild pain and discomfort for a few days after the MIS dental implant procedure, which can be easily managed by painkillers.
Will my dental implants fail if I smoke?
MIS dental implant reviews show that there is a higher chance of failing if the patient is a smoker. Smoking prohibits the process called osseointegration – the fusing of the implant to the patient’s bone.
Will my dental implants look natural?
MIS dental implants can be combined with crowns or bridges made from different materials. Dental crowns for example can perfectly mimic the patient’s natural teeth colour, translucency and look.
