Are painless dental implants even possible ?
Did you know that painless dental implants are possible when the operation is done correctly? Minimally invasive surgery that saves tissue is a safe, quick, painless, and precise surgical method. The recovery period is also shorter.
Why you don’t have to be afraid of the operation
Painless dental implants operation is now possible at ClassDent. Thanks to the advanced treatment methods, we often hear our patients say that they have been surprised at how easy and painless dental implant surgery is. Most patients do not experience any pain during the operation and only minor effects after it.
I understand that patients may be quite anxious about installing a dental implant. That’s why we have created a patient-oriented treatment concept. The purpose is to make the appointment as pleasant as possible.
Although the benefits of a dental implant are already commonly known, many patients are nervous before the operation. The word “surgery” may worry the patient, and the fear may even cause them to postpone the treatment.
However, it is a fact that installing an implant is a painless operation when done correctly.
Safe, Quick, Painless Dental Implants!
When installing a dental implant we use minimally invasive surgery which saves tissue and is safe, quick, painless, and precise. The recovery period is also shorter. Our team consists of experienced professionals and they will know how to deal with the patient’s fear. We feel that it is extremely important that we together with the patient go through the operation calmly and carefully. To reach a painless dental implant operation, we recommend that you discuss the means to alleviate your fear with us. For example, taking premedication by mouth at the beginning of the operation if you’re very much afraid.
There is no reason to be afraid of installing a dental implant. The area into which the implant will be installed will be numbed and a numbing lotion can be used in the area to be numbed to lessen the discomfort caused by the injection.
For the patients to feel secure, we will tell them during the operation what is being done and what will happen next. We will also agree with the patients on how they can communicate with us during the operation. The patients can, for example, raise their hands if they want to have a break.

Computer Guided Implantology
Computer-guided implantology is one of the possible techniques used for inserting dental implants. In summary, the phases that characterize it are as follows:
- Diagnostic imaging with Tac Cone Beam, three-dimensional orthopanoramics;
- Sending of three-dimensional images to a specific software;
- Digital planning of implant surgery;
- Sending data to the dental laboratory for the realization of the specific surgical template;
- Surgery for the insertion of dental implants through the use of the surgical guide.
Phase 1: Three-dimensional digital images
The planning of an implantology intervention with traditional diagnostic images, that is two-dimensional, such as endoral or orthopanoramic 2D radiographs, does not allow the dentist to evaluate some important parameters such as bone thickness and quality, this could lead to a wrong evaluation on type of systems to be inserted. The three-dimensional digital images, obtained thanks to digital tomography, allow the dentist to reconstruct the specific anatomy of each patient with detailed information. With this information it will be possible to create reliable models and proceed with computer guided implantology.
Phase 2: Planning of the implant surgery intervention
All the digital information collected by the dentist is transferred into special software that can recreate the three-dimensional model of the patient’s anatomy. Thanks to digital reconstruction, it is possible to virtually plan the exact location where the implants will be inserted, taking into account the thickness and quality of the bone. Having the patient’s anatomy under control allows the dentist to act without interfering with the inferior alveolar nerve or the maxillary sinuses. Once the position of the dental implants has been established, all the information is transferred to laboratories for the realization of the surgical guide.
Phase 3: Placement of dental implants through the surgical guide
The surgical guide is a mask that is placed in the oral cavity during surgery. In the template some holes accurately reproduce the points where the implants must be inserted: it is, using simple words, a guide for the dentist. Like other implantology techniques, it is performed in flapless mode, ie without the incision of the soft tissues and therefore without particular trauma for the patient, with rapid healing times.
