Dental implant Tunisia: what is the installation of dental implants in Tunisia?

Dental implant placement in Tunisia is the most durable method of dental surgery in Tunisia that most closely resembles a natural dentition.

A dental implant is an artificial root usually made of titanium, used in dental surgery to replace a natural root that has been compromised by infection or trauma. Virtually all dental implants placed today are endosseous root implants, meaning they look like a real tooth root and are placed in the bone. The jawbone accepts and integrates with the bone with the titanium post. Osseointegration refers to the fusion of the implant surface with jawbone. Dental implants fuse with bone. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They can also be used as anchors for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants allows unidirectional movement of teeth without reciprocal action.

The components of a dental implant:

In general, conventional dental implants are designed in three parts. These three parts are the implant screw, the abutment that attaches to the implant screw, and the prosthesis that can be a crown, bridge or denture.

Dental implants used in Tunisia are a proven solution, offering a reliable treatment result.

Placed in the jawbone by a dental surgeon, the dental implant is used to replace an already extracted root. It is not a prosthesis, but an anchor point that supports a future dental crown or bridge, and therefore a base on which the future prosthesis will be fixed.

The placement of a dental implant in Tunisia prepares the ground for the replacement of missing teeth by dental prostheses. The goal is to give patients back their ability to bite, chew and communicate properly.

The latest dental prostheses used in dental surgery offer an impeccable aesthetic and functional result. They do not stand out as artificial.

It should be noted that dental implants cannot be recommended in the case of a root in good condition.

Price of a dental implant in Tunisia

The cost of a dental implant in Tunisia is up to 50% cheaper than the price in France and Europe, with an all-inclusive formula (the price of a dental implant in Tunisia, the surgeon’s fees and the hotel stay…). The price of a dental implant in Tunisia will be determined after a precise clinical dental examination. It should be noted that the dental implant is not covered by social security.

Dental implant Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in dental implantology is a medical examination and a panoramic x-ray. The dental surgeon evaluates your teeth and the panoramic (which you must bring with you). This allows him to present a verdict and to establish an adequate treatment plan, if he judges that the installation of dental implants is adapted to your case.

He or she must also tell you the cost and duration of the procedure, the number of implants (and the type of implant), and the potential risks.

Implant dentaire Tunisie - Chirurgie dentaire

Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia. It is usually done in a dental office.

The surgeon begins by making an incision in the gum. A small hole is then drilled into the jawbone with a drill. The implant will be inserted into this hole with a screw.

Bone grafting and additional dental care may be considered.

Once the hole has been sewn up, a temporary prosthesis is usually placed. This allows time for your jaw to heal properly.

Once the healing is complete (after 2 to 6 months), which is called the prosthetic restoration phase, i.e. once the implant is well anchored in the jaw, the surgeon will proceed with the placement of the abutment, in order to prepare the gum for the last step: the attachment of the dental prosthesis. This step is usually done after 2 weeks.

The installation of a dental implant in Tunisia is a procedure that is not very painful. It may cause some swelling, bruising and bleeding (during the first 2 days).

It is recommended to maintain impeccable oral hygiene to avoid any risk of infection and to promote rapid and healthy healing.

Hot, solid meals should be avoided for the first few days. Also, avoid sports activities during the first week.

If you wish to have an estimate for dental implants or other cosmetic surgery in Tunisia, the ideal will be to prepare certain elements to facilitate our medical advisers the procedure. They will then be able to provide you with a detailed estimate according to your case. 

The elements necessary to make dental implants in Tunisia are :

A recent panoramic x-ray 
Photos of your smile with your mouth open and teeth clenched 

If your jaw is not thick enough or is too soft, you may need a bone graft before you can have dental implant surgery. This is because the powerful chewing action of your mouth puts a lot of pressure on your bone, and if it cannot support the implant, the surgery may fail. A bone graft can create a stronger base for the implant.

There are several bone grafting materials that can be used to rebuild a jawbone. Options may include natural bone grafting, such as from another area of the body, or synthetic bone grafting, such as a bone substitute material that can provide supporting structures for new bone growth. 

It may take several months for the grafted bone to produce enough bone to support a dental implant. In some cases, you may only need a minor bone graft, which can be done at the same time as the implant surgery. The condition and quality of your jawbone will determine how you proceed.

Thanks to the osseointegration of the implant, the life of a dental implant can extend over many years. However, there are certain factors that can affect the life of an implant. The amount of jawbone, the location of the implant, and the level of dental care can all have an impact on the life of a dental implant. Health problems such as diabetes or smoking can also impact the longevity of dental implants.

As with natural teeth, good oral hygiene can extend the life of the dental implant. In fact, with good hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.

To get the most out of dental implants, patients should make sure they have regular dental checkups and follow good oral hygiene, which includes daily brushing and flossing; lifestyle changes, such as reducing smoking, and dietary changes can all help to significantly extend the life of dental implants.
