Risks involved

Facts and misconceptions surrounding complications following implantation

Implanatation at Dent-A-Lux is at all times preceeded by thorough examinations. When necessary, we use state-of-the-art PET and ConeBeam CT procedures to map the related area in order to be able to apply as little strain to the tissues involved as possible while providing optimal treatment and reduce the chance of complications to a minimum. We believe prevention really is the best treatment and double-check everything. During the implanting operation, we monitor all proceedings with the help of a high-precision RVG (radiovisiograph). Below is a list of possible complications compiled based on questions frequently asked by our clients, with the surrounding facts and misconceptions explained.

Post-implantation swelling

All surgical manipulation of the tissues will induce certain bodily reactions, which are considered normal. The causes are numerous, but their scope and magnitude can sufficiently be reduced with properly implanting the artificial root. Our CAD/CAM method, which is a form of guided surgery, requires no cutting of the gum and results in minimal swelling only. This swelling is, however, not due to inflammation. It is caused by an appearance of excess water (oedema) in the area as part of the tissue's raction to the manipulation. The swelling can be reduced significantly by applying cooling gel (available in pharmacies) after the local anesthetic's effect is gone.

Pain after implantation

Proper and sterile preparation along with our reduced-strain surgical approach can virtually eliminate post-operation pain. If there is some pain, it lasts no more than 48 hours and can easily be supressed by common painkillers. This incidental inconvenience is due not to inflammation but the tension present in the tissues due to swelling and the natural healing processes.

Inflammation following implantation

This sort of complication is extremely rare due to proper preparation and the sterile environment we work in. In order to prevent it, our clients are required to follow the instructions they are given properly and contact their dentist immediately if any signs appear.

Blood vessel or nerve damage due to dental implantation

Due to the nature of the technology used for implanting a certain degree of damage to minor blood vessels and nerves cannot be fully eliminated, but the the harm caused is far from being permament and results in no impairing of any sensations. A potential issue is damage to a major blood vessel or nerve plexus (such as the ones serving the lower jaw), but proper care and experience can virtually eliminate the risk. The safety of our procedures is further enhanced by the state-of-the-art technologies we use daily, e.g. the CAD/CAM method (guided surgery) and the RVG (radiovisiograph), which enables us to monitor the proceedings step by step. We are proud to inform you that no such complication has ever occured at Dent-A-Lux!

Damage to the nasal cavity during implanation

This sort damage can occur when implanting artificial roots for the upper front teeth. As the complications above, this can also be prevented easily by preparing properly and implementing the procedures carefully. The CAD/CAM method (guided surgery) and the RVG (radiovisiograph) are again of great help here.

Damage to the paranasal sinuses during implantation

This sort damage can occur when implanting artificial roots for the upper grinding teeth. The best way to prevent this kind of inconvenience is again proper preparation and implementation of the surgical procedures required for implantation. The likelihood of encountering this phenomenon is extremely low. When bone grafting is required around the paranasal sinuses, the thin mucosal lining might get punctured. Even so, when treated properly, no permanent harm is left. It is true that this complication can delay implanting, but as we take extreme precautions to prevent it, no such case occured at Den-A-Lux so far.
