It is important for each patient to be fully informed. That is why we've listed the most frequently asked questions below.
In many clinical cases there are decayed teeth and roots that we extract before the implantation. Although basal implants are anchored deeply in the cortical bone, this bone needs time to remodels after that. Therefore the construction has to be light (like metal - composite constructions).
During the period of 1 year the bone starts gradually to shrink (atrophy). This is a normal physio-anatomical process in which gums and bone reduces their volume. After that several sections of the constructions become unaesthetic.
Metal-composite constructions are light and cheaper and can be fixed in the mouth of the patient without sending to the dental laboratory.
The value of this treatment is sometimes cheaper because bone-removal materials, sinus lifting, etc. are not used. It is based on the number of implants and the structures above them. You save not only money but also time and headaches from walking to different specialists.

It is necessary to observe all the basic rules of implantation:
- first - on the implants and manufacturer side: the implant must be of titanium and certified by world-renowned companies;
- secondly - on the surgeon-implantologist side: to have experience, dexterity and knowledge of anatomical physiological features in the maxillofacial area, to work strictly, sterilely, in a well-equipped clinic;
- third - on the part of the patient: be prepared in advance and comply with all instructions from the physician, make regular check-ups and adhere to strict oral hygiene.
Yes, it will hinder because bruxism is involuntary clamping on teeth or implants and can lead to destabilization of implants or wiping of dental surfaces. It also causes pain in the joints and the chewing mussels. Therefore, it is very important for such patients to undertake additional treatment with the insertion of muscle relaxants in the chewing muscles and to wear a special individual splint for bruxism.
It is important for us that the patient must be calm. Once a local anesthetic has been established, the procedure itself is totally painless (sensations are smaller than tooth extraction due to lack of work in inflammatory tissues).
Sometimes, using some implant placement techniques in difficult-to-access areas, post-operative swelling and weak tenderness are possible at the site of intervention, but these are normal body reactions.
The main difference is that conventional implants are placed in spongy bone and waiting for a period of about 6 months for final integration and subsequent loading while basal implants are anchored directly into the cortical bone (hard) and no time for bone adaptation of the implant with bone and that is why they can immediately be loaded with structures.
The main similarity between both of them is the metal frame.
The difference is mainly in the material that they are produced. Ceramic constructions are heavier and more esthetic than the composite ones. They have better mechanical properties and do not change their color in time. Metal –composite constructions are lighter than the ceramics but are vulnerable to changing their color. The main advantage of the composite is that it can be directly fixed in the mouth.
On the day of the final cementing of the structures and during each inspection, we provide care and hygiene guidelines through additional oral hygiene and nutrition in the first 7 days.
Yes, if basal implants are placed deep in the hard bones. This will significantly save you time and money. If it is necessary to place a bone substitute for the placement of conventional implants, especially in the area of the maxillary sinus floor, this is inevitable.
Regular visits are an important and obligatory part of implantology treatment. We initially assign more frequent visits (1 month), then every 6 months.
Non-observance of the prophylactic check-ups we have determined.
Failure to comply with information and health and hygiene guidelines
Excessive use of alcohol, drugs.
Irregular wear of the patient's bruxism splints.
When changing the patient's opinion on shape and color, after the already finished construction.
The emergence of new diseases and the taking of medications that have an adverse effect on the chewing mechanism and directly affect implants (radiotherapy, bisphosphonates, etc.)
Accidents and facial injuries resulting from catastrophes, sports, etc.
In Medstom clinics we are not responsible when the treatment is continued with another colleague and elsewhere without our knowledge.
