Dental implants are a universal solution for any patient after tooth loss.
Implant treatment is designed to restore a patient's missing tooth or teeth in terms of function, aesthetics, and articulation. It also serves to ensure overall well-being.
Any adult can undergo the procedure, and the only recommendation for the procedure is all cases of missing tooth or teeth.
Implantology for everyone at Soldent Center
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root whose shape resembles a small screw, to which a porcelain superstructure (crown) is attached that perfectly imitates a natural tooth crown.
Currently, the most physiological forms of treating missing teeth are implantoprosthetic methods. Implant treatment is aimed at restoring the patient's missing tooth or teeth in terms of function, aesthetics and articulation. It also serves to ensure general well-being.
Dental implants can be used to replace both single and multiple missing teeth, dramatically improving quality of life. Depending on individual needs and anatomical conditions of each Patient, different types of implants are used. When choosing an implant, the dentist takes into account the shape of the bone, its amount and the distance between teeth, which are adjacent to the gap after the lost tooth.
Why and when are dental implants used?
Dental implants are an effective solution for people who have lost one or several teeth, as well as in case of complete tooth loss. It is worth remembering that this method not only imitates nature, but also ensures the recovery of the tooth root and its crown, which are much more durable than traditional restorations.
Implant treatment is also ideal for the reconstruction of multiple cavities. You may decide to rebuild your teeth with an implant-supported bridge or to place several implants in place of all your missing teeth.
Dental implants are a solution for everyone. Any adult who is in good health and has no medical contraindications to implantation may undergo the procedure. The procedure is indicated for all cases of missing teeth, both single and multiple defects, and even edentulousness of both arches. Dental implants are also a great solution for those who cannot tolerate conventional dentures.

Implant treatment solutions used in the Soldent center
One tooth missing
Before the invention of implants, the lack of a single tooth was masked with a traditional bridge.
Advantages of using dental implants at Soldent Center
- First of all, implants prevent resorption, or bone loss, which occurs when teeth are lost. The loss of even a single tooth can cause irreversible changes and lead not only to bone loss, but also to the spacing or leaning of remaining teeth.
- Dental implants allow for the replacement of not only single cavities, but also all teeth, depending on the patient's needs. They are also virtually invisible under the gum line, while the crowns placed on them perfectly imitate natural dentition.
- Patients who have chosen dental implants confirm not only a greater comfort of chewing, but also the aesthetics of their new teeth, which results in increased self-confidence and improved well-being.
- Another advantage is exceptional durability - dental implants can serve their owners for even several decades. Although the crown of the tooth may break, for example due to an injury, the implant itself has a very high durability.
- Implants do not have any influence on other teeth, whereas in traditional methods it is often necessary to file down the neighbouring teeth in order to fix bridges. Reconstruction of teeth with implants does not require grinding and does not affect the neighboring teeth in any way.
- It is also worth mentioning that there are no complications with using implants. They are imperceptible to the Patient and do not require any repairs as they become an integral part of the body.
Contraindications to implant placement
- Local contraindications: Affect the oral cavity and are therefore independent of the patient. They include, among others: too small size of the alveolar process insufficient for placing dental implants, insufficient space between neighboring teeth and between upper and lower teeth, as well as abnormal mucous membrane existing in the place of future implantation.
Absolute contraindications: These primarily include certain medical conditions. These include diabetes, which is associated with various systemic complications and can lead to impaired wound healing. Other debilitating diseases, such as AIDS or cancer, as well as alcoholism and drug addiction, are also contraindications to this type of surgery. In the case of alcoholism, there is a higher risk of perioperative hemorrhage due to blood clotting abnormalities.
Implants cannot be placed if the patient is pregnant or under 16 years of age and has not fully developed facial bones. Other contraindications include unfavorable anatomic conditions of the jaw, as well as a history of radiation therapy in the craniofacial region.
General relative contraindications: These include allergies and cardiovascular diseases, advanced parodontosis and inflammation of the periodontium and mucosa, kidney and respiratory diseases, as well as endocrine disorders and rheumatic diseases.
Heavy smokers also face the risk of complications after dental implants because tobacco impedes wound healing by reducing vascularization. Smoking is one of the leading risk factors that contribute to implant failure rates.
What does the treatment look like?
Placing an implant in the bone
The implant placement procedure involves placing an implant in an appropriate position in the upper or lower jaw to allow it to fuse with the bone and then, after it fuses and heals, to place a crown on it. There is no need to perform this procedure under general anesthesia, and local anesthesia using an injection with an anesthetic agent guarantees painless course of the entire implantation. For an experienced and skilful operator the procedure of inserting one implant takes about 20 minutes, provided that the bone conditions are good enough.
Types of implantation
If an implant is placed in the place of an already extracted tooth, it is an ordinary implantation, where the healing period is between 1-4 months. However, if we have a broken or damaged tooth that needs to be removed, the best solution is immediate implantation, which means placing the implant during the same procedure in the place of the removed root. This reduces the number of procedures for the patient and uses the natural potential of the socket after extraction to heal the wound for the implant to grow back faster.
I recommend it with all my heart! It was only my first visit to the Soldent clinic, but certainly not the last. The excellent doctor Kasia Łoza-Sołtyk answered all my questions, dispelled my doubts, and gave me a wide range of treatment options for my teeth. From the most economical to the more expensive. Both the doctor and the dental assistant were very cordial and positive. My adventure with the camera will surely start right here.
Very professional and friendly service, doctors are great specialists, experienced and modern equipment. I am delighted with the effects of the treatment, from conservative treatment and prosthetics at Dr. Agnieszka Wołcz to implants at Dr. Krzysztof Sołtyk. My children are currently receiving treatment at the clinic. Thank you very much, Dr. Marta Owczarek and Dr. Anita Paszkowska, for her extraordinary approach to younger patients; thanks to you, they have healthy and straight teeth, and the fear of visiting her has much smaller eyes.
I came with an older person to make implants, a bit scared. The staff calmed down and dispelled all fears, and Dr. Krzysztof performed a sensational and painless procedure. The clinic is clean and tidy, equipped with modern equipment, one hundred percent recommendable. The patient, satisfied and more convinced of the dentist, will be happy to go to the next appointment instead of fear. Thank you!
