Does it work for everybody?
Implants have an extremely high success rate. Some patients need special care and attention and there are a few patients for whom other options are better.
Does it hurt?
Pain is surprisingly low after treatment and usually well controlled with standard painkillers. This usually goes after 3-4 days. Some patients experience a higher level or longer period of pain and require stronger painkillers and more rest. Swelling is usually controlled with medications, but again, some patients experience swelling which lasts for about 1-2 weeks.
How soon can I eat?
Immediately. We want you to eat so that you have adequate nutrition for the healing process. We will give you a printed sheet containing soft food suggestions.
Are there any hidden extras?
All potential costs will be presented clearly and transparently in a written treatment plan. If you have any queries prior to the beginning of treatment, we will be happy to clarify. In most cases, we are able to reduce the final fee compared to the treatment plan.
Are there any possible complications? What could go wrong?
In all medical or dental treatment, there are potential risks and complications. We present the possibilities to our patients clearly. Naturally, we take every precaution to reduce the chances of problems to a bare minimum, by careful planning and excellent implementation. During your consultation, we explain the specific risks and complications related to your specific situation. We also have a general information page on this website. Please see….
In the consultation process, it is our ethical duty and legal responsibility to provide you with a full list of the possible alternatives for you to consider.
How can I finance this?
If you’re credit-worthy (the normal checks are done), the treatment fee can be spread over 12-60 months from interest rated ranging from 0% to approximately 9%. This will be explained in detail if you wish to consider this option. The cost could be as low as the price of a cup of coffee a day.
