What is a dental implant?

A dental implant in Tunisia is a tooth replacement procedure. If you have lost a tooth, a dental implant is a safe, stable and permanent way to get a new tooth that looks, feels and behaves like your own.

The dental implant is actually the root of the replacement tooth that is integrated into the jawbone. It is positioned below the gum line so that it is not visible; a short post is then attached to the implant, protruding through the gum, over which a crown (false tooth) is placed.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are suitable for people who are in good health and have no bone loss in the jaw. Bone loss usually occurs when advanced gum disease has progressed to the jawbone.

This disease attacks the tissues that hold teeth in place, causing them to fall out. If you have lost your tooth as a result of this disease, it is unlikely that there will be enough bone in your jaw to accommodate a dental implant, unless it is rebuilt through a separate surgical procedure called bone grafting. Although bone grafting is a common procedure, it can delay the placement of your dental implant by up to a year.

Smokers are not good candidates for dental implants. Smoking compromises the body’s ability to fight infection and heal; it also reduces blood flow, which reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that can reach the cells.

If you continue to smoke, the implant is particularly at risk when it is first fitted, but will remain so throughout its lifetime, potentially leading to its failure.

● There is only one dental school in Tunisia, and it accepts only the very best candidates to train as dentists. Training is at the same level as in Western countries, with five years of study, followed by a year of internship and specialist training, for example in implantology afterwards.

● Dentists in Tunisia are likely to be members of reputable professional organisations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI ).

● Private dental establishments in Tunisia are modern and equipped with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, including digital X-rays and 3D/CT scanning.

Course of the procedure

Almost any dental procedure can be carried out successfully as a dental tourist, and dental implants are no exception. However, this is a two-stage process, so you will need to plan two separate short trips to Tunisia to complete the dental implant procedure.

On the first visit, the dental implant will be placed in your jaw. It may be more than one implant, depending on your needs. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation. The dentist makes a small incision in the gum.

The gum is folded back to form a flap, so that the dentist can access the jawbone. A small hole is then made in the jawbone and the implant inserted. The gum flap is sewn back into place and, once the stitches have dissolved, you will see no trace of the implant in your mouth.

The implant is then left in place for at least three months – often longer – during which time it will fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. The aim of this process is to provide a solid base for the fitting of your false tooth. It also gives your gums time to heal.

On your second visit, the dentist will open your gum again, usually under local anaesthetic, to expose the implants. A small post (abutment) is attached to the implant at one end, with the other end protruding through the gum. A crown (false tooth) is attached to this end, completing the dental implant procedure.

Implantation Summary of the time frame:

● Phase 1: During your first trip to Tunisia, the dental implant is placed in your jaw. The procedure normally takes 1 or 2 hours. You can return home after a few days on the advice of your dentist.

● Phase 2: You will need to wait at least three months before returning to Tunisia. A local dentist can confirm whether you and your implant are ready (for a small fee).

● Phase 3: Return to Tunisia after three months (or more) to have the crown fitted. You should only need to stay in the country for a few days to complete this final stage.
