Majority of clinics do not even offer any guarantee, and if they do, usually it's up to 2 years.
Our guarantee is 100% patient satisfactory, as we offer 100% free repeating of the procedure, as well as free accomodation during the guarantee period.
- DENTAL IMPLANTS ------ 10 YEARS (LIFETIME)
- ALL CROWNS, BRIDGES & VEENERS ------ 5 YEARS
EVERY OTHER TREATMENT ------ 3 YEARS
Every implant that has lasted 10 years, will last a lifetime with a proper hygiene and professional care, unless some other systemic conditions do not occur. Basically anything that reduces immune system or quantity and quality of the bone (cancer, radiation, chemotherapy etc.) can cause problems with implants.
These circumstances are very rare, but they are out of our control and can not be covered with any guarantee.
With a proper maintenance, every implant, crown and bridge made in our clinic can last for decades or even a lifetime.
What reduces guarantee:
- bad or improper oral hygiene,
- mechanical trauma (car crash, punch etc.),
- failing to have a regular check-up and professional cleaning (by any dentist, not necessarily in Alpha) at least once a year,
- some systemic conditions, chemotherapy, radiation, uncontrolled diabetes, immune system problems,...
Proper hygiene for implants and crowns / bridges/ veeners:
- Brushing should be performed at least once a day (after every meal would be ideal),
- It is very recommended to use interdental brushes (Curaprox* or similar) and dental flossing (when possible),
- We recommend getting a Waterpik* or a similar water-flosser, for every implant patient. Our clinical research has shown that these devices reduce inflamed gums and any implant hygiene problem for more than 30%.
* Curaprox and Waterpik are Alpha Dental Clinic partners and we provide discount on their products for all of our patients
