IS THE PLACEMENT OF A DENTAL IMPLANT PAINFUL?
The technique used at the Bayard Dental Practice guarantees the absence of pain during and after the placement of the dental implant. Local anesthesia is systematically performed. For patients who are phobic or allergic to local anesthetics, the procedure can be performed under general anesthesia at the Médipôle Lyon-Villeurbanne.
After the procedure, treatment is put in place so that the pain never appears.
HOW LONG IS A TREATMENT WITH IMPLANTS?
The first step in placing implants is very quick (around 15 minutes per implant).
The second stage of prosthetic production requires a healing period of 3 months, during which the implant will become integral with the bone. In some cases, this second phase can be performed on the same day as the placement of the implants.
HOW RELIABLE ARE THE IMPLANTS OVER TIME?
All our implant treatments are guaranteed for 10 years. However, the use of titanium dental implants in humans has existed since the 1980s and shows great stability of prostheses on implants over time, well beyond the 10-year warranty.
There is no rejection when the patient’s state of health allows him to receive implants (contraindications are very rare).
WHAT AESTHETIC RESULT AND WHAT COMFORT CAN BE OBTAINED WITH AN IMPLANT PROSTHESIS?
The aesthetic result is very close to a natural tooth. It is made to measure in our laboratory in Lyon, taking into account all your specific requests.
The prosthesis on implant makes it possible to find comfort and remarkable masticatory efficiency. It allows you to eat all types of food normally. However, it does require daily brushing as well as the use of interdental brushes.
UP TO WHAT AGE CAN WE HAVE IMPLANTS?
International statistics and our experience show that age is not a barrier to dental implant placement. Only the amount of bone remaining can limit the number of implants or require the use of a bone graft. If there is no tooth left in the lower jaw, with 2 implants a complete prosthesis can be stabilized in all situations, and with 4 implants in the upper jaw.
HOW MUCH DOES AN IMPLANT COST?
During the first consultation, an interview with the practitioner specializing in implantology will allow you to define the exact number of implants required according to your needs. An estimate will be provided to you so that you can request your mutual insurance company for possible support from them.
The cost of an implant is € 790 without the prosthetic part.
WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE IMPLANTS?
The implants placed at Cabinet Dentaire Bayard are manufactured by the French leader in dental implants located in Brignais (69). They come with a 10-year warranty.
