●  Implants (Osstem/GC Aadva and MiS system)
●  Guided Tissue Regeneration - bone regeneration with bio-materials
●  Sinus lift
●  Painless tooth extractions
●  Surgical extractions of unerupted teeth

●  Plastic correction of frenulum of the tongue and lips (frenuloplasty)
●  Microsurgery procedures

Dental implantology is the most advanced therapy to replace missing teeth. Implants restore the appearance, functions and sensitivity of natural teeth. Implants, compared to traditional prosthetic restorations, minimize the tooth loss, don't require to prepare healthy teeth, have anti-ageing effect, give more self-confidence, improve the quality and comfort of life. Implants are made of the purest Titanium. Titanium has been successfully used in orthopaedics for the last several decades. The human body accepts Titanium like its own tissue, so that the bone grows directly on the implant and the implant becomes a natural tooth root. Titanium is well-known because of the fact that it doesn't cause any allergic or foreign body reactions. For all the time, the Titanium implant is protected by the so called inactive outer layer, thanks to which it is defined as a biological teeth denture. Implants are inserted into the upper or lower jaw bone and grow into it. This process is known as osseointegration. Implant is the foundation for the crown. After the healing period, when the implant is anchored in the bone, an abutment is fixed on it and connects the implant with the crown. In the last stage the crown is put on the implant. The crown matches the other teeth, when it comes to its colour and form. Implantation is carried out under ambulatory conditions with administration of local anaesthesia.

Our clinic has the accreditation from Osstem and MiS companies for implantological procedures. Our specialists in surgery, who carry out implantations, have many years experience in conducting such procedures and thanks to the newest devices for placing implants and special biomaterials which replace lost bone tissue, our patients can be sure of the highest quality of these procedures.

All surgical procedures are carried out completely without pain - see section "anesthetics"

Guided Tissue Regeneration (bone regeneration)

We would like to point out that there are new possibilities of surgical correction and Guided Tissue Regeneration (we use biomaterials made by the Swiss company Geistlich: Bio-Oss® and Bio-Gide®). In case of bone atrophy of alveolar process because of e.g. an extraction carried out long ago, such bone defect can be eliminated and this is crucial for smile aesthetics.

We also carry out procedures on soft tissues, like e.g. corrections of accreted or too short frenulum of the tongue and lips.

Endodontic microsurgery

In case of a failed endodontic treatment or as a complementary treatment, we conduct microsurgical procedures like e.g. root resections (apitectomy) with retrograde filling with biomaterial MTA and with restoration of bone defect with use of artificial bone.
