Frequently asked questions

We know that you probably have many questions about your dental care. Especially when you are considering going to another country for it.

In this list, you will find some questions that we usually get from our patients. However, if you have any other concern that do not appear in this please don’t hesitate to get in contact whit us. It will be a pleasure to assist you and clarify any questions.

What is a sinus lift?

A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. 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.

What type of bone grafts do you use?

We use bovine bone graft material also called xenographic  materials. These materials create a scaffold for new bone tissue to grow.

What is a build up?

When your tooth is badly broken or missing a large volume as a result of a disease process, an artificial dental crown may be indicated to restore function and appearance of the tooth so that, if there are any cavities or failing fillings we need to take them out in order to clean the tooth and reconstruct it with a new filling.

What is a connection surgery?

After your implants are placed they are usually covered by your gum tissue, if by the time you come to complete the restorative work that gum is still on top of the implant we will need to make a small incision to access/expose your implants and this is the connection surgery.

What brand of implants do you work with?

We work with Zimmer Dental, Oco Biomedical and S.I.N. Implant.

Why do I have to wait 6 months to restore my Implants?

There is a need to wait because the implants need to properly take place into your jawbone.

How many days do I have to stay?

This depends on the amount of work you are having done, but here are some general timeframes:

  • Just Implant placement / surgical phase: 4 business days (plus arrival and departure).
  • 1-5 units: 5 business days (plus arrival and departure).
  • 6 or more units: 9 business days (plus arrival and departure).
Why do I have to stay for so long?

When it comes to restorative work, the lab requires a certain amount of days in order to deliver the work.  However, you should know that you would not be all these days in the clinic, so you can also enjoy our beautiful country.

We use local anesthetics, such as Novacaine or similar.
