Is it possible to be
allergic to implants?
have been around for more than forty years. Over this period no reaction to
titanium implants has been detected. The material has no allergenic components
and is completely neutral in the body.
Is there a minimum age
growth should be completed at the time of implant placement. It is generally
complete at the age of 18. Girls generally finish growing somewhat earlier,
boys are often later. In cases of doubt this can easily be checked by an X-ray.
Is an implant still
advisable at an advanced age?
is basically never too late to improve your quality of life with implants. The
treatment is so low-risk that implants can be placed in people who are 70, 80
or even 90 years of age.
Will I be without teeth
during the healing phase?
If you had a removable denture beforehand, in most cases you will be able to
continue to use it after some minor adjustment. If you did not have a removable
denture, the gap can be closed with a temporary denture. In some cases a
temporary denture can even be fixed to the implants immediately. Very
high-quality solutions, which are virtually identical to your final crowns and
your natural teeth, are available for such long-term temporary dentures.
If I am a diabetic can I
also have an implant?
However, you should be stable before implant treatment. Unstable or untreated
diabetes may cause problems with the healing process. In case of doubt consult
your diabetes specialist.
Are there any diseases
that would prevent implant placement?
really, but if you suffer from a condition such as cardiovascular disease or
osteoporosis, serious kidney damage, tendency to high blood pressure or an
impaired immune system, you should inform.
Will the implant cause
the metal detector to beep, such as during the security check at the airport?
no need to worry. Implants are not magnetic and they are also much too small for
the detector to detect them. And even if the metal detector does beep and
detect your implants, you will have your implant passport that will explain the
problem quickly and without problems.
Could implants affect my
Implants have no electromagnetic effect. They pose no danger to the operation
of your pacemaker.
Are there any
interactions with medications?
may be possible with specific medications. Cortisone, for example, can affect
the metabolism and immune situation of the body in such a way as to cause
problems with healing. Anticoagulation medications may cause serious hemorrhage
during implant placement. If you take any medications regularly, you should
tell the dentist during the initial consultation.
Are implants advisable
long-term success rate of implants can be adversely affected by smoking. Please
describe your smoking habits in the initial consultation to allow the risk to
be assessed accurately in your case.
Can I exercise normally
after implant placement?
is basically not a problem after implant placement. However, if you want to
participate in vigorous exercise, discuss it with implant dentist first. He may
recommend waiting a few days to avoid affecting the healing process.
