What are dental implants?
Dental implants are substitutes for teeth that are implanted in the jaw. They are holding a crown, bridge or denture just like natural teeth normally do. They consist of two parts: a titanium “screw” that is placed into the bone and the annex that is placed into the root part after it has been fused with the bone. Dental implants are so well adjusted in the mouth, you’ll forget they are even there.
Incomparably better stability of dental prostheses.
Compensation of the back teeth, that was until recently a very complicated situation that had to be dealt with using the unstable partial dentures.
Preservation of adjacent teeth, and there is no need for additional grating of teeth in case of the loss of one tooth.
Improved quality of life, as you can eat almost all food and you need not fear the embarrassment caused by poor fixed dentures, and you can talk crystal clear which restores your confidence.
Implant placement also prevents bone resorption that follows the loss of teeth.
Am I a candidate?
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to laugh, talk and eat with comfort and confidence, we have good news for you! Implants are substitutes for teeth that look completely natural and they offer the feeling as if they were your own. Under certain conditions, like when they are being implanted by trained and experienced implantologist, coupled with the good care, implants can last a lifetime.
Implants vs. bridge?
Each tooth that is missing has to be replaced for the sake of the function sustainability and integrity of the oral cavity, so implants are the best way to get back your lost teeth, without the need for grating of the adjacent teeth.
Implants vs. dentures?
Loss of all teeth has until recently ended with the wearing of dentures to which patients have difficulty to get used to and which poorly meet the needed function. Now due to dental implants, this has changed and with 4-8 implants per jaw, we will almost entirely offer you the usage of your teeth so that you can eat food you were simply dreaming of having while wearing dentures.
How are implants fitted in?
After the titanium screws are implanted into the bone, the continuation of therapy must wait several months, depending on the jaw, so that the screw grows firmly to the bone, and only thereafter, at that root part, a tooth replica is placed. In the meantime, the patient wears temporary model that enables him to function normally until the treatment is completed in full.
If you miss one or several teeth, or you do not like the look of your teeth, they can be recovered and replaced with prosthetic restorations in the form of implants, veneers, crowns or bridges.
Inspecting the condition of your teeth and with the help of x-rays, we will suggest the best solutions for your smile.
Ceramic crowns (cover)
Ceramic crowns are “caps” placed on the tooth to protect it from cracking, and so they can return its functionality and thus offering the prettied-up version of the smile.
There are two types: metal-ceramic crowns and metal-free crown made from ceramics. Metal ceramic crowns are solid and esthetically acceptable. All-ceramic crowns are even more esthetically acceptable solution.
If you have a tooth that has a large filling or the one that is loosened by caries and if the filling itself cannot solve the problem, then you can consider choosing crowns, metal-free or metal ones, depending on the situation in your mouth and your needs, requirements and possibilities. If there are more of these kinds of teeth, or if some are missing, it is possible to go with metal-ceramic or non-metal ceramic bridge and implants.
Bridge is a construction that is placed over grated teeth in order to strengthen, reinforce, and embellish them, and it can also compensate for the loss of one or more teeth. Bridge can be metal-ceramic or non-metal ceramic. Metal-ceramic bridge is solid and esthetically acceptable solution that is financially affordable. Non-metal ceramics are esthetically more beautiful, and it’s made with the special technique, using CAD/CAM computer-operated system with a specially adapted apparatus, thereby making it more accurate and avoiding the factor of human error.
Ceramic bridges are prosthetic replacements that compensate one or more teeth that are missing by faithfully mimicking the appearance and function of natural teeth. If we do not make up for missing teeth, there is a possibility of displacement of the remaining teeth, and the development of periodontitis and the loss of proper bite. Bridges can be metal-ceramic and non-metal. Non-metal ones provide a high level of esthetics, and excellent tolerability and firmness of tissue. They are manufactured using precise, computer-operated procedures that reduce any chance of errors.
In the case of the lack of a large number of teeth, the right solution is getting dentures. Given that the denture is a mobile tool that is removed from the mouth, patients have trouble adapting to it therefore there are various ways of making it as well as that of the retention in the mouth (buckles, crowns, implants) that allow more comfortable carrying.
The treatment and obturation of the root canals; restoration and correction of the form and colour of teeth; full restoration of total coronary teeth destructions.
In our professional practice we use the latest methods of treatment of caries, pulpitis, periodontitis, wedge-shaped defects and erosions, fluorosis, enamel hypoplasia (its poor development) and other conditions. The use of advanced technologies, up to date materials, last generation anesthetic substances with special caution and care by our staff will protect you from any negative feelings during the treatment. Diagnosis and treatment of dental caries.
Dental cariesis one of the most common disorders of the dento – maxillary system, which is characterized by a gradual and localized loss of hard tooth tissue under the influence of several factors, including poor oral hygiene, excessive consumption of foods rich in sugar, smoking, stress and many other causes.
Dental caries can be complicated by infections and may even lead to tooth loss. Dental caries can be prevented by brushing your teeth and flossing them regularly, periodic dental check-ups with your dentist.
Filling (obturation) aims to replace the missing dental tissue and to achieve it different kinds of materials are used (the ones that are closest to natural tooth properties).
Treatment of pulpitis, periodontitis
If a patient doesn’t consult his dentist on time, and the caries evolves deeply within the dental tissues, complications such as pulpitis and periodontitis may develop.
Pulpitis is the inflammation of the soft tissue inside the tooth. Pulpitis is characterized by pain that gets worse when using cold, hot, sweet and spicy foods. When characteristic symptoms of pulpitis occur you should consult your doctor. Consulting your doctor too late can lead to serious complications.
Treatment of dental pulpitis involves administration of analgesics and anti-inflammatory substances for pain relief, but it also requires a dental examination. Your dentist will prescribe an antibiotic, will drain your tooth to remove the pus and clean the canals with antiseptic. After disinfecting the affected area, the dentist will try to keep the tooth by protecting the pulp. If it is not possible, the specialist will extract the pulp, will disinfect the dental cavity and will obturate the tooth.
Periodontitis is the most dangerous complication in the process of caries development. In this case, the inflammatory process extends not only to the deep tissues of the tooth, but also to the bone tissue around the tip of the tooth root.
Orthodontic treatment is most often used to improve the appearance and alignment of teeth and correct problems with the bite. Your dentist will need to refer you to an orthodontist.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Correction of dental crowding and straightening of the teeth
Correction of the bite so that the front and back teeth meet evenly

Improving your appearance – your smile!
Clear braces Metal braces
Teeth are more likely to become damaged or put a strain on jaw muscles when someone has crooked, crowded or teeth that don’t meet properly when they bite. Abnormal development of the teeth or jaw can also affect the shape of the face. Orthodontics can also treat other health problems such as a cleft lip/palate and even cases of mild sleep apnoea!
Orthodontics is normally started on children when they are about twelve years old when they have lost most of their baby teeth and while they are still growing. It is dependent on the amount of adult teeth they have and the growth of their face and jaws. Orthodontics can be started at any age, but treatment options are more limited in adults.
Orthodontic treatment can increase the risk of tooth decay, so its of utmost importance that the patient has a good standard of oral hygiene or the orthodontist can postpone your treatment or even refuse to treat you. People wearing fixed braces are at risk of getting more of a build-up of plaque as they can trap food, which in turn, can cause tooth decay when acid is produced from the plaque. Your orthodontist may recommend a high fluoride toothpaste and extra tooth-brushing will be required. You should also avoid sugary foods and fizzy drinks. You will still need to see your dentist regularly.
Orthodontics mainly uses braces to correct the position of the teeth, but your exact treatment will depend on the problem with your teeth. It’s common to have some teeth removed as part of your treatment. Some braces are removable, which you take out at night or to eat a meal. NHS braces are made of metal; but plastic, ceramic and clear braces are available privately. The length of treatment will depend on how complicated the problem is, but treatment normally lasts between a year and a half to two years.
Perfectly aligned white teeth is one of the criteria for any person’s health and beauty. Even if we maintain daily hygiene, we can not prevent the teeth from getting yellow.
Therefore, we can not change anything without a dentist’s intervention. That’s why whitening of teeth is a very common procedure.
Methods of dental cosmetics and esthetics:
Certain food pigments (coffee, tobacco, tea, red wine, etc.) and also teeth colouring substances (like tetracycline, excessive fluoride) can cause undesired changes in their colour. In order to obtain good teeth colouring, rigorous hygiene and even professional cleaning are insufficient.
Zoom 3 plasma-lamp whitening system, offered by VIVODENT, offers remarkable results in just 1 hour of treatment, being completely safe and comfortable, the short period of time needed and the light colours obtained making it highly solicited, especially among the patients that value their time. Lamp dental whitening is also very useful and recommended when getting ready for a short-notice event where a flawless smile is needed. This method provided teeth whitening in just 45 minutes. The colour of the teeth changes with an average of 6-8 shades.
Ceramic veneers: they are the most esthetic restorations, but also the most delicate. They are achieved by layering techniques determined by the minimum space available. They are beneficial because they require minor polishing of the tooth’s outer surface (0.6 mm) preserving the vitality of the teeth. They are very appealing, devoid of a metallic infrastructure, the restored teeth will not have any dark shadows near the gums. The ceramic veneers hold the texture and translucency of natural teeth:
