What happens after your dental implants abroad with Dental Holiday?

Our dental implant squad is among the most seasoned full-arch surgery teams available internationally regarding’ smile in a day’ comprehensive dental implants. This indicates our firm commitment to providing comprehensive and knowledgeable treatment and care, from your initial inquiry about dental implants to the days, weeks, and months post-procedure.

Here’s what our devoted dental implant aftercare program has in store for you:

Dental Implant Procedure Day

We will provide you with comprehensive post-surgery care guidelines on caring for your mouth and new teeth in the days after the operation to facilitate a swift recovery. These instructions will guide you through different stages post-surgery and include steps to take in case of complications. However, serious problems are seldom encountered, and we’re always available to assist you.

We’ll also offer advice on initially suitable food choices and how to gradually incorporate different foods into your diet. Generally, you should be able to consume anything easily cut with a fork immediately after receiving your new fixed teeth.

Approximately 12-14 Weeks Post Dental Implant Surgery (For Smile Complete & Smile Premium)

We will fit your final bridgework or crowns around 12 to 14 weeks following your procedure. This period allows the implants to merge with your mouth and heal completely. Subsequently, our expert dental implant technicians design the final permanent bridgework. Utilizing the latest technological advancements, the bridgework is hand-finished by our master dental technicians in our in-house lab and fitted during this appointment. The final bridgework is reinforced, slimmer, and more aesthetically pleasing than the temporary teeth fitted during your initial visit.

During this visit, you will receive an After Care Kit, complete with a detailed demonstration of using the included items, such as the electric toothbrush, flossing brushes, Dental Implant Care manual, etc.

Scheduled Check-Ups

We will recommend the frequency of your routine dental implant check-up appointments. This can be done locally with your dentist or a local clinic, or you can come out to us again if you prefer. During these sessions should verify the following:

  • The stability and proper integration of the dental implants with your jawbone
  • No signs of wear and tear on the bridgework/crowns
  • The health of supporting structures, including soft tissue levels and jawbone
  • The completion of both extra and intra-oral examinations, which may include x-rays if necessary
  • The microscopic evaluation of your bridgework/crowns in our on-site lab, as needed, ensures a consistently excellent fit.
  • A record of your medical history and discussion of any concerns since your last visit
  • The performance of oral cancer screening
  • The capture of necessary X-rays to assess the health of the jawbone around the implants and provide reports based on X-ray results
  • The cleaning of implant interfaces and underneath the bridgework/crowns using an air polisher
  • The removal of any stains from the bridges, if required
  • The inspection and replacement of any missing access covers
  • The tightening or replacement of screws in the bridge, if required
  • Advice on oral hygiene practices for home care regimes to maintain the health of the implants, soft tissue, and bridgework/crowns

Kindly be aware that bridges are only removed when considered clinically necessary. If your oral hygiene requires the removal of bridgework, you may need to schedule a separate appointment that incurs charges.

Having a complete smile makeover and regaining full use of your teeth is no small deal. It's a HUGE deal and there are lots of clinics which claim to be able to offer this service. I had done extensive research on this procedure and decided to visit three clinics - two in Hungary and Smile Clinic in Slovakia. Both clinics in Hungary said that I had insufficient bone structure and to be honest, gave me no sense of patient care whatsoever.The team in Bratislava, led by Dr Kafka, were completely the opposite. From the moment you are met at the airport by Dano, they made me feel extremely welcome, didn't judge and when Dr Kafka did my initial consultation and explained what he would do, I almost burst into tears (of relief). He gave me an absolute level of confidence straight away and Katarina prepared a treatment plan for me. She also talked me through every step, answered all of my questions and has been my patient coordinator right through to the end.Three months later, I was back in the Bratislava clinic and Dr Kafka did the surgery to remove all of my remaining teeth, perform 2 sinus lifts, undertake gum recontouring and insert 12 implants (6 top and 6 bottom) - plus the fitting of my provisional set of crowns. This surgery is usually done by Dr Marek in Piestany, but due to scheduling, I had it done in Bratislava. Dr Kafka and his team made me feel comfortable at every step of the way and once the injections were done, I felt no pain whatsoever (I only felt sensations and pressure, but definitely no pain).Straight away, I had a set of crowns which were a vast improvement on what I had before and these lasted me until my next two visits in Piestany with Dr Marek, 4 months later. The two visits consisted of creating impressions for the final crowns / arches and then the final fitting and adjustment of the permanent crowns. Once again, Dr Marek and his team gave me utter confidence and made me feel very welcome.Words simply are not enough to describe how happy I was after the final fitting and I cannot thank Dr Kafka, Dr Marek, Katarina, Michaela, Dano and the entire team for everything they have done.To be able to smile again, talk with confidence and eat with ease is TRULY life changing. It is a fraction of the cost of the same procedure in the UK and this kind of work is what they do, day in and day out. If you are even considering this kind of treatment, I would urge you to have a consultation. You will be in extremely safe hands.

I am from the UK and have just completed my treatment with Dr Marek. I have had 2 implants, 5 crowns and 3 fillings to my teeth. I am very happy with the professional treatment and totally recommend the Smile Dental Clinic to anybody. I am happy to discuss my treatment with anybody. I particularly reassure anyone who like me and elderly decided after research to trust the clinic. I am so delighted with the result! I stayed in pleasant accommodation recommended by the clinic. Picked up from airport by Daniel and delivered to the clinic and returned to airport after my treatment was fantastic as I was unfamiliar with the country and language. English is spoken by all staff. Lovely people and totally professional. Thank you to all at Piestany Clinic!

To give you an idea of just how nervous I was, I had not been to a dentist since I was 24. I am now 47!!!!My husband had a lot of work done in 2014 by this dentist (Merrick) and was extremely happy so I decided to give it a go.They have been amazing. They managed the whole process taking away any anxiety.I had an enormous amount of work, 20 crowns!!!I am so happy with the outcome and the way they looked after me. I can not recommend them highly enough.

I have been a customer of the clinic since 2009 and the past few years I witnessed how much the team put so much effort to make the experience at the clinic an absolute delight. The level of attention to detail and professionalism is remarkable and the best I have experienced this far. I travel a lot and have a lot of dentistry work done due to my receding gum. I couldn't recommend Daniel, Mark and the rest of the crew enough. You just glide through the process, from the airport pickup, to the hotel and it is a very quick flight from England as well. Price is very affordable as well and you get to have a holiday at the same time in the very traditional SPA town of Piestany.
