Dental implants and prosthetics

Your comfort and dental aesthetics are perfectly restored with Straumann® implants

Dental implants have revolutionised the traditional approach in dentistry, bringing about a technological breakthrough that was still unthinkable only a few years ago. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant provides significant advantages in terms of patient health, comfort and aesthetics. At our Adent dental clinics, you benefit from the expertise of our specialist dental implantologists together with the high quality of Straumann® Swiss dental implants, which we use exclusively for our dental work. For dental prosthetics, the presence of in-house Adent 3D, Dental Design Department and Swiss Dentec dental laboratories offers swift access to dental technicians.

The priority relationship patients have with their dentist and dental technician results in the creation of beautiful implants and prosthetics with the benefit of Swiss-made excellence. The Adent Group places great importance on remaining at the forefront of technological innovations. This is why it has the most recent, top-of-the-range intraoral scanners in its clinics, as well as a manufacturing machine in the Adent 3D in-house laboratory. These two types of equipment work in tandem, revolutionising the manufacturing chain for dental prosthetics such as dentures, crowns and inlays, for example.

Optimal results thanks to Straumann® dental implants which guarantee quality, durability and precision

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial root – sort of titanium, zirconia or polymer screw – inserted into the jawbone to replace an absent tooth. The implant serves as a support for attaching various elements: a dental crown, a prosthesis (partial or complete). It stabilizes and considerably improves the comfort of life of complete denture wearers. Indeed, the dental implant offers optimal hold for a lower prosthesis and eliminates the palate plate for the upper prosthesis thus rediscovering the flavours.

The same implant can also change function during a lifetime: initially, it can serve as a support for a crown, then it can become the attachment of a mobile prosthesis thereafter. This surgical intervention is common, simple to apply, and consists of some kinds of reverse extraction.

Who can benefit from implants?

Dental implants are for anyone with missing or lost teeth and who has sufficient bone in their jaw to support the implant. In order to fit a dental implant, one of the main prerequisites is that the patient’s jaw has a sufficient amount of good quality bone. Good general health is also essential, and this factor is much more decisive than the person’s age. Dental implants may be contraindicated for patients with certain chronic health conditions. For further information, do not hesitate to contact our specialist dental implantologists.

How long does treatment take?

The total length of the treatment to fit a dental implant depends on many factors. Therefore, the following information is provided only as a guide.
In practice, fitting an implant and the healing process last three to six months on average. Once the implant healing process is complete, production of the dental crown or final prosthesis (or denture) can begin. The waiting period will vary, depending on the complexity of each case.

How much does a dental implant cost?

The price of fitting a dental implant depends on a number of factors. To produce a quote, the implantologist will need to meet you and evaluate your current oral and dental health in order to establish the precise cost of your dental implant. Dental treatments to be carried out before fitting an implant must also be taken into account (for example, treating a dental cavity or inflammation of the gums). To determine the price, your dentist must therefore carry out a preliminary oral examination to assess the dental care needed, the feasibility of an implant fitting, and to then provide you with a detailed quote. In addition, it is always important to have a discussion with your dentist in person to be able to ask him or her any questions you have about this future dental surgery.

If you would like more information, please make an appointment with a specialist at your nearest Adent dental clinic.

Replace your tooth in an aesthetic, comfortable and natural way.

The crown is a ceramic dental prosthesis that replaces the visible part of the tooth strongly affected by decay or fracture. It protects the tooth against wear and allows the covering of an implant replacing a missing tooth. The complete extraction of the tooth is avoided while improving aesthetics and comfort

The crowns are made by the artisans of our Adent 3D laboratories and our partner laboratories. This work is tailor-made, carried out in collaboration with the patient, the dentist and the dental technician. The colour is selected according to your smile.

What is the process?

  • The dentist takes the imprint of your teeth and sends it to the lab
  • After administering a local anaesthetic, he carves a part of the natural tooth. He then takes an impression of the tooth and the neighbouring teeth and sends it to the laboratory to ensure that the permanent crown is perfectly adjusted.
  • He then makes the temporary crown that he places on the tooth to protect it during the making of the permanent crown.
  • At the next session, the dentist replaces the temporary crown with the permanent crown, checks the fit, shape and colour, then cements it into position, thus restoring the function and appearance of the tooth.

How much does a crown cost?

The cost of a dental crown depends on its size and location. Visit your dentist for a thorough check and a precise quote.

Get back your oral functions and a harmonious smile

The bridge, as is commonly, is a dental prosthesis that can replace one or more missing teeth. This prosthesis can restore aesthetics and comfort in the mouth. The abutments of the dental bridge are generally located on both sides of the edentulous space and are in the form of implants or milled teeth. It is on these pillars that the bridge rests. It is fixed and cannot be removed. Good oral health is essential for the longevity of this dental prosthesis. Regular control and descaling is required by professionals.

Who is the bridge intended for?

Anyone who has lost one or more teeth may use the bridge to fill the missing space, except for the contraindications mentioned by the dentist.

  • The dental bridge can repair damaged teeth or replace missing teeth.
  • The dental prosthesis prevents movement, receding of gums and possible loss of other teeth.
  • Chewing is facilitated, thus promoting optimal digestion.
  • The smile is harmonized.

How long does the treatment take?

The total duration of the treatment depends on many factors, which only your dentist will be able to inform you according to your personal situation (absence of one or more teeth, placement of dental implants, etc.).

How much does a bridge cost?

The price can only be fixed after a thorough check by one of our qualified dentists. He will provide a detailed quote, according to the treatment plan discussed.

A balanced smile thanks to veneers

Enjoy a permanently white, dazzling, more seductive smile thanks to dental veneers. This technique is recommended for:

  • Correction of teeth colour (when bleaching is insufficient)
  • Enamel defects
  • Worn, broken teeth or teeth that are too short
  • As well as for minor misalignment of the teeth (small overlaps or spaces)

A veneer is a small, very resistant ceramic envelope that is fixed on the front face of the teeth. The colour is pre-defined in accordance with your smile and covers the natural tooth. They are placed on the visible front teeth to correct the contour, colour and dimensions to improve the appearance of the smile. They are made to measure to give you an optimal result, a natural effect and especially a long life.

What is the process?

  • The dentist takes the impression of the teeth that he will send to the laboratory member of the Adent network to create the custom veneer.
  • He reduces the tooth thickness and makes the surface less smooth to facilitate the adhesion of the ceramic veneer. He then cements the veneer on to the surface of the tooth

How much does a veneer cost?

The price can be set only after a visit to your dentist. He performs a complete control and analyses the situation to provide you with a customised estimate.

Composites are materials in the form of very aesthetic pastes or liquids and allow invisible restorations of worn, broken teeth, using a multitude of shades.

Owing to progress made in recent years, they are used for a large number of restorations of small to medium importance, both for the anterior and posterior teeth. Other important advantages in addition to the aesthetic appearance, it is not necessary to remove a lot of healthy dental substance to be able to insert a composite filling.

What is the process?

The composite and the adhesive are sensitive to moisture, the practitioner must take special measures to keep the area of intervention dry. Sometimes local anaesthesia is needed to avoid pain. The dentist then applies an acid making the surface of the tooth rough. He then applies a fluid or paste composite; the latter hardens with the aid of a polymerising lamp. The sculpture and polishing of the tooth are the final phases.

How much does a composite filling cost?

The price depends on the size and surface of the composite to be applied. The need to take X-rays or the application of anaesthesia also influence the cost. A thorough check by a dentist is necessary in order to establish an accurate estimate.

Onlays and inlays consist of repairing a tooth where the decay is very extensive. They are alternatives to high volume composites

These are prosthetic parts that rest on the tooth. Their role is to assist in the reconstruction of a tooth that has suffered from problems of oral hygiene, decay or cracks. As for a conventional crown, the dental technician cuts the tooth to reconstitute and then takes a dental impression. They can be placed on a living tooth unlike a crown that requires a devitalisation of the tooth. They are very aesthetic because they allow to reconstitute identically the damaged part of the tooth.

These restorations are manufactured in our Adent 3D laboratories and our partner laboratories from various materials such as ceramics or a combination of composites and porcelain.
