Dental Implants

In the smile design, Dental Center Dr. Batkoski uses world-class materials. That is why we overcome a functional and aesthetic challenge of a lost tooth using Ditron implant system. This system complements a perfect smile with its quality and characteristics.

You could say that dental implantology is a milestone in a life of a patient who struggles with the problem of toothlessness. It allows them to have fixed teeth units, and getting those dental implants abroad is most of the time the best solution.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that substitutes the root of a tooth; its design is based on the design of a natural tooth. Materials used to make implants are biocompatible, and they will last a long time if a patient follows the instructions regarding oral hygiene and comes to regular check-ups to his dentist, even if the dentist is overseas.

Patient Benefits:

  • Perfect aesthetics
  • Natural look of a tooth
  • A perfect smile
  • Adjacent teeth remain intact

1. What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 is a concept where an utterly toothless jaw is equipped with four implants that hold a fixed bridge. That allows patients who have the total prosthesis and who are toothless to have fixed implant prosthesis instead of a removable prosthesis which have to be taken out and put back in daily.
Dental implants are a long-term solution for missing tooth or teeth, and if a patient takes care of his oral hygiene and comes to regular check-ups at a dentist, we give a 10 years guarantee.

All-on-4 Allows:

  • Solving toothlessness in a short period.
  • Reducing the number of patient’s visits as well as the complete duration of treatment.
  • Soreness-free therapy and recovery.
  • High-quality results.

All-on-4 Benefits:

  • A short time of recovery
  • Bone and sinus lift upgrade is excluded
  • The natural look of a face
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Long-term solution
  • Hygiene

2. The All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure Explained

  1. Before installing All-on-4, a patient goes through a detailed dental examination that consists of the check-up, consultations with dentists and a variety of diagnostic procedures.
  2. After a detailed examination, we confirm if a patient is a candidate for the All-on-4 method. When it is confirmed that a patient is an ideal candidate, he will be given a new smile in only one day.
  3. In just one day we install four dental implants, reconstruction, and temporary teeth.
  4. After a few months when dental implants have grown together with a bone, a permanent bridge is developed for a patient.

3. The All-on-6 Procedure

Dental implants are a long-term solution for missing tooth or teeth, and if a patient takes care of his oral hygiene and comes to regular check-ups with his dentist, the guarantee is life-long.
All-on-6 is a concept where an utterly toothless jaw is equipped with six implants that hold a fixed bridge. That allows patients who have the total prosthesis and who are toothless to have fixed implant prosthesis instead of a removable prosthesis which have to be taken out and put back in daily.

All-on-6 Allows:

  • Solving toothlessness in a short period.
  • Reducing the number of patient’s visits as well as the complete duration of a therapy.
  • Soreness-free therapy and recovery.
  • High-quality results.

4. The All-on-6 Dental Implants Procedure Explained

The All-on-6 method is simple. First of all, a detailed first examination is needed where the patient’s dental condition will be established. During the examination, the patient will consult our dentists, express his wishes and needs, and undergo various detailed diagnostic procedures.

After the examination and diagnostic procedures, dentists will decide if you are a perfect candidate for All-on-6 and give you a comprehensive plan of therapy and financial offer that does not commit you to anything.

The all-on-6 method begins with giving anesthesia so the whole procedure is painless, and during one procedure we install 6 dental implants, extension, and temporary teeth.

After that, a patient can go home and continue with the standard way of life. It is recommended that the patient doesn’t eat until anaesthesia entirely runs down. During a couple of months after the procedure (3 to 6 months, depending on the case) it is recommended to eat soft food and to avoid food that requires strong chewing, crunchy food, and seeds.

When a dental implant coalesces into the bone, after three to six months, a fixed bridge is installed, and a patient can go home with a normal functioning jaw.

5. All-on-4 vs All-on-6?

Both methods (All-on4 and All-on-6) have the same goal, which is solving patient’s toothlessness. Both methods require the same process of installation and both methods are painless because they are conducted under anaesthesia.
All-on-4 and All-on-6 differ in the number of dental implants. All-on-4 is a concept where the utterly toothless jaw is equipped with four dental implants that hold a fixed bridge, whereas All-on-6 is a concept where the utterly toothless jaw is equipped with six dental implants that hold a fixed bridge.
Also, an All-on-6 method is recommended for patients who have reduced bone density as an installation of dental implants stimulates bone growth and gives the patient a more defined jaw appearance.
Whether All-on-4 or All-on-6 will be installed depends on the patient’s dental condition, his needs and the best solution for him.

5. What It's Used For Sinus LIFT

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:

  • Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.
  • Bone may have been lost because of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.
  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus varies from person to person. The sinus also can get larger as you age.
