Possible Complications after Dental Implant Surgery


During the implant procedure while drilling the nerve that runs through the jawbone can be nicked. The result would be pain or numbness. If numbness takes place, it usually impacts on the lower part of the lip and/or, sometimes one side of the tongue. It can continue for a few months until the nerve heals. In some instances, it may be permanent.

In the upper jaw, it is possible of drilling through the jawbone into one of the sinuses or nasal cavity. If this happens it could result in an infection. To avoid this scenario, special X-rays need to be taken before surgery to help the surgeon determine where the nerves, sinuses and nasal cavity located.

More than 96% of dental implant surgeries are successful. It rarely happens that the implant fails to integrate with the surrounding bone tissue. This problem can only be discovered at the second stage when the implant is uncovered and the surgeon finds it is loose. In this case, the "failed" implant needs to be replaced with another one immediately or as soon as possible.

Smoking appears to decrease the blood flow to the healing gums and bone, which could interfere with the bonding process. Common problem is the lack of healthy bone.

Problems also can develop years after implants are placed. For example, just like natural teeth and gum tissue, the gum around implants can become infected by bacteria. This leads to a form of periodontal disease called periimplantitis. If left untreated, this condition can cause bone loss. Then the implant can become loose and have to be removed. Generally, this situation can be treated in a way very similar to treatments for periodontal disease affecting natural teeth.

Another type of complication is breakage. Either the implant or the implant supported restoration (crown, bridge or denture) can break. This usually happens if your bite (the way your teeth come together) is not aligned properly. If your bite is off, too much force might be placed on the restoration or implant. This can cause the implant to lose its integration with the bone. Broken restorations can often be repaired. However, a fractured or failed implant has to be removed. An implant that breaks or fails because of an infection can be replaced with a new implant.

European Dental Tourism Treatments Overseas

Dental tourism is a term that describes seeking dental treatment in another country. The necessity for travel may be the sole or primary motivation for the dental treatment sought. The internet and internet advertising may also be an important source for accessing and researching affordable dental treatment possibilities overseas. Affordable dental care can be a significant Center-3.jpgproblem for some in the US population and that is why more and more patients have been turning to dental treatment overseas as an option, instead of getting very expensive dental care at home.

The affordability factor is a significant issue as a procedure may be performed abroad at a much lower cost compared to the amount that a patient would pay in the US. This affordability has been made even more attractive recently, especially if you compare dental care prices to European countries like Hungary or Austria. Both countries have high standard of dental services. Improvements in the standard of care overseas may also play a role.

There are definite benefits for accessing dental care outside the US. The most important is the affordability, high completion of treatment plans, convenience of treatment, combination of treatment with some leisure activity or visiting family and avoidance of waiting lists.

Lukacs Thermal Spa in Budapest

Tourists do not visit the Lukacs Spa (Lukács fürdö) as much as others in Budapest, as it is not as extravagant as the famous Gellert spa or Szechenyi. Nevertheless, Lukacs has a great reputation among locals. Those cured have placed marble tablets in the courtyard to express their gratitude, with the oldest tablet dating back to 1898.

When it opened in 1894, Lukacs spa was the biggest and the most popular bath in Budapest. Besides those coming for cures, Lukacs was also a favorite meeting place among writers and artists, and it still remains popular in literary circles. Facilities at the Lukacs include a drinking fountain, with healing water that is helpful for stomach problems, gallbladder and kidney stones.

The thermal water has been bottled since the turn of the century and distributed around the world. Look for green bottles labeled Szent Lukacs (Saint Lucas). To learn more about Lukacs spa please click here
