What are Dental Implants?
Apart from quality materials, Digital Smile Academy is the only clinic in Europe that uses computer-guided dental implant installation in real time which provides patients with the most accurate dental implant installation. The computer-guided installation gives patients the best result in solving their problem caused by the lack of a tooth or complete toothlessness.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that substitutes the root of a tooth; its design is based on the design of a natural tooth. Materials used to make implants are biocompatible, and they will last a lifetime if a patient follows the instructions regarding oral hygiene and comes to regular check-ups to his dentist.
- Perfect aesthetics
- Natural look of a tooth
- A perfect smile
- Adjacent teeth remain intact
In the design of a smile, Digital Smile Academy uses world-class materials. That is why we overcome a functional and aesthetic challenge of a lost tooth using MIS implant system. This system complements a perfect smile with its quality and characteristics.
You could say that dental implantology is a milestone in a life of a patient who struggles with the problem of toothlessness. It allows them to have fixed teeth units.
Need a Full Replacement?
In Digital Smile Academy we follow world trends, leading technology, equipment and we continuously educate ourselves to offer our patients a permanent solution for toothlessness that once was a problem.
All - on - 4
A concept where an utterly toothless jaw is equipped with four implants that hold a fixed bridge. That allows patients who have the total prosthesis and who are toothless, to have fixed implant prosthesis instead of a removable prosthesis which have to be taken out and put back in daily. An all-on-4 method allows solving toothlessness in a short period, it reduces the number of patient's visits as well as the complete duration of therapy, it reduces soreness during the treatment and recovery, and it increases the quality of the results.Read More
All - on - 6
Just like the all-on-4 method, the allon-6 method is a concept where a completely toothless jaw is equipped with six implants that hold a fixed bridge which allows patients to have a fixed implant prothesis instead of a removable one. All-on-6 method is the best solution for all teeth restoration and it depends on bone quantity of a patient. If a patient doesn't have enough volume of jaw bone, then All-on-6 treatment requires jaw bone extension or a sinus lift procedure.

We offer a unique experience “Your new smile” so you can see yourself and your new smile for the first time in a natural and relaxed environment before the treatment even starts.

Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Academy's work is based on Digital Smile Design (DSD), the most modern dental rehabilitation planning process that enables detailed planning of the treatment for the therapist, and the real insight into what is to be achieved by creating a prosthetic work for the patient. DSD is a digital smile design which helps us create the provisionary look of a new smile in patient's mouth.
Apart from Digital Smile Design, Digital Smile Academy's work is based on an entirely digital protocol of oral rehabilitation which can be carried out wholly using digital technology. We can get finished prosthesis work omitting standard procedures like collecting imprints and probations, just by collecting our data digitally, using dental photography and scanning patient's existing condition. This has decreased the number of patient's visits, and digital technology has enabled achieving the natural look of a tooth.
Before and After Pictures
Our philosophy is clear; a smile is the strongest form of expressing ourselves that we, as individuals, possess. It overcomes cultural, social and all the other barriers. A smile will always connect people by manifesting emotion, sensuality, and foremost – humanity. We are proud of our numerous works, and some of them are visible in this section.
Long-lasting overconsumption of fizzy drinks has led to a severe function and aesthetics disruption which is why Jadranka has come to our clinic. After the first check-up patient was presented with a precise therapy plan which included endodontic, dental implants installation on positions 35 and 37 (fifth and seventh lower left tooth) and installation of multicolour zirconia crown. Jadranka is our first patient who has had the first significant rehabilitation in cooperation with practitioner Cekic, which has further expanded possibilities and implemented the latest technology in the world of dentistry.
Rukyie came to our clinic after postponing a visit to the dentist for many years. The patient came to the clinic almost entirely toothless which is why she couldn't eat normally or smile. Therapy plan has included endodontic, dental implants installation and installation of zirconia ceramic crown. After a therapy based on Digital Smile Design, we have solved the patient's functional and aesthetical problems caused by lack of teeth.
Vedran has brought joy into our clinic, and he became one of our favourite clinical cases. Vedran's therapy has included upper jaw rehabilitation. We have also planned a lower jaw rehabilitation which can be performed after osseointegration of dental implants. Treatment that has brought a smile to our patient's face has included dental implants installation, dental plaque removal, endodontic and installation of metal, ceramic crowns.
How Much Does It Cost?
Every patient is approached individually; every therapy is planned especially for each individual depending on their dental state and that is why the total cost is different from patient to patient.
In our clinic, we try to offer the best prices to our patients, and the final price differs from case to case.
Price of a therapy includes the first free examination and consultations with dentists.
Price of a therapy includes a free of charge 3D CBCT which is the most advanced RTG diagnostics.
During the treatment, we offer a free accommodation to our patients, which contributes to significant savings.
In our clinic, we work with the world's best premium brands that correspond to our long-lasting experience in the field of dental implantology. We overcome the functional and aesthetic challenges of a lost tooth using high-quality MIS implant system, and the result is a healthy, natural and beautiful smile.
All our dental implants have a lifetime guarantee. After installation of dental implants, our patients are advised how to maintain oral hygiene and to come to regular check-ups to their dentist. If they follow instructions from our dentists, installed dental implants are a permanent solution.
There is a possibility of a certain money refund. Before coming for a treatment, you should consult with NHS.
Before the treatment of dental implant installation, the bone graft is not required unless there is a lack of volume of the jaw bone. It that case augmentation is needed, which is an extension of a bone. During the first check up in our clinic, dental implantologists will observe the patient's condition in detail using the variety of diagnostic procedures, and they will recommend a therapy.

Determining candidates for implant dentistry depends on diagnostics examination. After we examine the patient, establish his dental condition and get an insight in his RTG scan we can determine if the patient is a good candidate for implant dentistry and we can create an accurate plan of therapies.
After it is confirmed during the diagnostics examination that the patient is a good candidate for dental implant installation and we have created an accurate plan of therapy, we can start the procedure. In our clinic efficacy of installing dental implants is 98%, which reduces the risk of the treatment to the minimum.
After installing dental implants, it takes three to four months for a dental implant to coalesce into the jaw bone. Whether it will take three or four months depends on each case individually.
A number of appointments depend on a patient as well, it is different from case to case, but the most common cases are solved in two to three appointments in the clinic.
A regular dentist can't do dental implantation. In our clinic, dental implants are installed by experienced dental implantologists who are the only ones in Europe using the computer-guided installation of dental implants in real time, which provides the most accurate installation of dental implants to our patients. Computer-guided dental implants installation in real time offers the best result for the long-term solution of their problem.
VS Other Treatments
Dental Implants VS Dental Bridge
When dental implants are installed we don’t touch adjacent teeth, whereas when we install dental bridge we have to sand adjacent teeth which can cause teeth sensitivity.
Dental implant and dental bridge installing can have the same aesthetic effect, but when it comes to installing a dental bridge, after some time atrophy of the tooth bone in the missing teeth area can occur. This often leads to recession of adjacent teeth.
Above or below dental crown tooth cavity can appear which is very difficult to diagnose. If a tooth cavity isn’t diagnosed it can grow to tooth pulp, that is tooth core, which can cause problems in a root canal as well as pathology on the top of the root. If we continue to destroy the tooth it will have fractioned mobility and frequently associated infections.
When we compare these two options of replacing the lost tooth, a potential infection that may arise when installing a dental bridge can cause an unpleasant fistula that causes the pus which drops into the mouth and causes an unpleasant breath.
Underneath the gums destruction of a dental bone occurs and the only possible solution at that time is moving destroyed dental bridge as well as the destroyed tooth. If we want to install a dental bridge again we would have to sand adjacent teeth again and increase the dental bridge. In this situation when a dental bridge has to be restored, it won’t look as good as the original dental bridge that was installed before the recession around adjacent teeth, cavity and infection occurred. At this point a chance of cavities and infections are much more likely to happen as well as a chance of removing a dental bridge one more time, sanding new teeth and installing the new dental bridge.
When we compare these two ways of replacing a lost tooth, we can come to the conclusion that installing dental implants is much less traumatic and cheaper as well, because it doesn’t cause problems which lead to additional interventions and extensions.
Dental Implants VS Root Canal
The root canal has been used, for a long time, as a treatment for teeth that had roots which were damaged by trauma or deterioration. Treatment starts when a tooth is numb, with dentist opening a gap through the tooth crown and approaching dental nerve chamber where he will clean a tooth infection that has occurred or remove dental nerves in order to fill in the tooth.
Comparing root canal and dental implants, dental implants are much more successful, and the risk of any kind of infection is reduced to almost one percent.
The root canal is less expensive at moment, but in the long run, dental implants are a better investment.
Also, there is a tremendous possibility that root canal won’t be successful so the tooth will have to be removed and replaced with something else, or if a root canal is successful it has to be repeated in five to ten years, which causes additional expenses. Although it seems better to preserve the natural tooth instead of installing dental implants, root canal often fails and at the end, we have to install dental implants, and expenses are much higher than they would have been if we had installed a dental implant in the first place.
Dental implants preserve the remaining dental jaw and the structure of a patient’s face remains the same.
When dental implants are installed patient has a feeling of having a natural tooth. Also, dental implants function as natural teeth.
Dental implants are strong, stable and safely secured to the dental jaw.
Dental implants help restore the normal ability to chew.
Dental implants are a long-term solution.
Dental implants are very easy to maintain hygienically.
When dentures are installed the quality of dental jaw can be reduced, which can ultimately lead to deterioration of the patient’s facial structure.
When dentures are installed patient can have a feeling of having unnatural, false teeth.
Dentures often start to move and can cause a feeling of discomfort.
Dentures have limited capacity when it comes to chewing and often certain types of food have to be avoided.
Dentures will have to get fixed over a period of time.
Dentures have to be regularly removed to be cleaned.
