Tooth replacement treatment in the centre of Budapest, SPA environment

There are several reasons behind losing one or more than one of our teeth such as tooth decay, various periodontal diseases, or in the worst case, an accident. Missing teeth is definitely seen as aesthetically unpleasant, and it is stigmatised by the society. So, it can lower self-esteem and affect general mental health due to the discomfort of everyday activities like eating, speaking, and laughing. Moreover, if you’re missing teeth, it can affect your overall health. The unbalance of the teeth might generate jaw pain and lead to headaches and insomnia. Consequently, our dental health is much more important than it might seem like. We at Saint Lucas SPA Dental are very pleased to help you getting your healthy and happy smile back.

What are the common tooth replacement options?

Dental bridges, dental implants, removeable dentures

A dental bridge is used in case of extensive tooth loss. Natural teeth can hold the dental bridge only if the area of the missing teeth is located in-between stable and healthy natural teeth. So, the natural teeth can be seen as the ‘pillars’ of the dental bridge. In case of the lack of such strong natural teeth, dental implant placement is recommended.

Bone grafting (bone reconstruction) is usually the first step of a dental implant placement procedure which is the best way of tooth replacement. Under certain anatomical circumstances dental implant placement cannot be an option. Many times, the insufficient volume or thickness of the jawbone prevent placing dental implants safely. So, in such cases bone grafting is necessary for implant placement.

Dental implants can be placed in case you have lost one or more than one tooth. (The tooth had to be pulled out for medical reasons or loosened due to periodontal disease). The most common use of dental implant is replacing one missing tooth.

Removable dentures are used in case of partial or complete lack of teeth. In the former case, there are still natural teeth, but they are not suitable for dental bridges and crowns, in other words they cannot hold fixed dentures. In the latter case there are no remaining natural teeth, and the volume of the jawbone is not enough for dental implant placement. In such cases, a removable denture is the only solution. Removeable dentures, thanks to new procedures and technologies, can greatly improve the patient's quality of life.

The dental specialists at Saint Lucas SPA Dental help you chose the most suitable tooth replacement option. In such a difficult matter, a consultation is recommended, which we provide you free of charge at our office. Feel free to contact us!

Is tooth replacement an aesthetic issue or more?

From a medical point of view, tooth replacement is not a mere aesthetic issue as anatomy is considered when suggesting the replacement option for missing teeth. Of course, beauty is not secondary to us either, we pay attention to aesthetics when making the dentures. The aesthetic appearance of the denture is clearly visible, but the anatomical implications are often hidden.

Delaying the replacement of one or more missing teeth for many years can have significant health risks. In many cases, the symptoms are not easy to detect, but once the negative effects become clear, it is much more difficult to find a simple solution to them.

Tooth replacement in Budapest

The simplest tooth replacement option: dental crowns and bridges

The dental crown covers the treated tooth, or in case of an implanted tooth root it covers the head of the dental implant. We at Saint Lucas SPA Dental use dental crowns when the tooth is as damaged as it can’t be successfully treated with an aesthetic filling.

A dental crown is used when only one tooth needs to be treated, while a dental bridge can replace several adjacent missing teeth.

The use of dental crowns and bridges is considered a traditional solution because the frame of the crown and bridge is made of metal which makes this solution very much affordable. Of course, the aesthetic cover, which gives the final shape and colour of the denture, is made of tooth-coloured porcelain.

In what cases do you need a dental crown or a dental bridge?

  • In case of too large cavity in a tooth.
  • If the chewing surface of your teeth is broken or too worn down
  • If your teeth became severely discoloured
  • If the gap between your front teeth can only be shortened by crowns

If you have a missing tooth that has been replaced with a dental implant, it always holds a dental crown or bridge.

What benefits do you get from having dental crowns or bridges?

  • The aesthetic appearance makes them a nearly true-to-life replacement for missing of unhealthy teeth.
  • They offer durable solution for your dental problem.
  • You can regain your original chewing ability.
  • You don’t risk the health of the adjacent teeth of a decayed one.
  • The load on the bridged teeth will be balanced.
  • Once the dentures are done you can drink and eat with no restrictions.
  • There is no need any more to be ashamed of your discoloured, chipped or worn teeth

Such traditional tooth replacement gives you opportunity to live with nice and sound teeth once again: smile, eat and drink without experiencing inconvenient moments.

Complex tooth replacement option: dental implants

Dental implants can be placed in case you have lost one or more than one tooth. (The tooth had to be pulled out for medical reasons or loosened due to periodontal disease). Thus, you might need a dental implant in the following cases:

In case only one of your teeth is missing

The most common use of dental implant is replacing one missing tooth. It is not well-known that the loss of a single tooth alters how we chew, and it changes the load on the remaining healthy teeth which results in exposing them to a heavier load.

Dental implant placement is the best solution in case there are healthy natural teeth next to the missing tooth.

In case you have lost several teeth

If several teeth have been removed within a dental arch and the remaining teeth are not suitable for a traditional dental bridge (due to periodontal disease or because there would be a significant loss of dental tissue if intact teeth next to the lost one has to be reshaped) a so-called “non-removable fixed implant bridge” is made by placing several artificial tooth roots into the jawbone.

In this case, it is not necessary to replace each extracted tooth by a dental implant. Even in the case of three or four missing teeth, two dental implants are enough, for which a three- or four-unit dental bridge is made by the dental laboratory.

In case you have lost a tooth at the end of the row

In case the last tooth at the end of the row is missing, it is not possible to make a fixed denture for that area because the fixed attachment point is missing. This condition would greatly reduce the stability of the dental bridge.

This is no longer a problem, as by a dental implant the lost tooth at the end of the row can also be replaced. By placing a dental implant, it is possible to make a multi-unit dental bridge, as a new, stable attachment point is made to which the dental bridge can be attached.

In case you have a removable denture, and you want it to be fixed to prevent inconveniences

A removable denture might cause unpleasant moments since there is no fixed attachment point for the denture in the mouth, so it could move when speaking or eating (sure this happens when it is the most embarrassing).

There is a solution to this problem: an implant supported bridge is completely stable in every situation.

In case you have lost all your teeth, but you want a normal life and eat, speak and smile freely

If you're missing all your teeth, a full mouth dental implant can replace your lost teeth without the discomfort of a removable denture.

The full mouth dental implant fixed with artificial tooth roots provides you an unremovable denture that take the place of your lost teeth. (It is not necessary to place one implant for each missing tooth. It is enough to place 8-8 implants in the lower jaw and upper jaw.) The aesthetic appearance and the masticatory function of the full mouth dental implant is just as natural as your teeth before

Either a single missing tooth or no teeth at all, with dental implant you can regain the biting ability you once had and have new aesthetic smile again.

In addition to immediate dental implant placement, our clinic offers 3D computer-aided dental implant planning procedure as well. We also offer a great implantation alternative for total tooth loss, which does not mean removeable denture at all.

Would you like to have a denture placement procedure performed by dental experts?

For the replacement of missing teeth chose professional specialists to eliminate the following threats

  • Threats on the surrounding teeth: Too much space, load and pressure on the otherwise healthy teeth could make them move away.
  • Threats to the jaw joints: Overloading the joints as a result of unbalanced chewing can cause fatigue or pain in the joints.
  • Threats on the bone: The permanent absence of teeth results in significant bone loss that could make dental implantation impossible or could involve expensive and time-consuming bone reconstruction procedures in the treatment.

These risk factors are simply avoidable. The secret is the time: the earlier you have these problems fixed with implants for instance the bigger the chance is that you can avoid long-term health risks.

The health-conscious and farsighted thinking has major significance, not only because one can realize savings by avoiding future medical treatments but also because they can do a lot to preserve their own health.

Tooth replacement: Even the thought of it is painful but the pain only exists in your thoughts!

Tooth replacement, especially when implant placement is needed, is a serious procedure representing the top of dentistry. This makes people think that such a procedure ought to be inconvenient and even painful. But this really isn’t necessary.

The reasons why even dental implant placement is painless

Behind painless procedures are two secrets:

  • Local anaesthetic is used for the procedure that provides quick and painless relief for the whole duration of the treatment.
  • Implants are placed into the jawbone where there are fewer nerves responsible for the pain. This means that the same amount of local anaesthetic is enough for a surgery as for more conventional dental treatments.

Swelling or slight discomfort can follow the surgery, but these can easily and efficiently be cured with one or two painkillers. Ideally in some days you even forget that you have undergone a dental surgery.

If you consider having your missing teeth replaced with implants without pain and discomfort (with the exception that keeping your mouth open for a good while may well be inconvenient), visit Saint Lucas SPA Dental for a free consultation of implantation.

Our two experienced dentoalveolar surgeons: Dr. Tamás Ruszin and Dr. Róbert Nagy are happy to inform you of the details of implantation procedures. Call us on the (+36) 30 78 00 454 and request an appointment for a free implant consultation.
