Dental Implants Algarve
The Cris Piessens Dental Clinic in the sunny Algarve offers dental implants at an affordable price at a time that suits you.
Before you arrive
The first step is to contact the Cris Piessens Clinic when you will be asked about the nature of the treatment you require and your dental history.
You will then be given detailed information and price estimates before you book your flight.
You have the choice of booking your own accommodation and transport or we can arrange this for you.
All appointments are scheduled prior to your arrival
While you are here
Immediately upon your arrival in the Algarve you will be seen by Dr. Cris Piessens who will conduct a
clinical examination. Digital intra-oral X-rays, impressions and photos will also be taken.
Depending on your treatment, you may need more specific X-rays (Cat Scan) taken at "Radiologia de Albufeira" the same day.
As you are a Very Important Patient, all these appointments are made before your arrival and a member of our staff will accompany you at all times.
On the day of implant placement you will receive some sedative premedication, so that under normal local anaesthesia you can relax and undergo a totally painless treatment.
You will leave the clinic a few hours later with a new temporary crown (depending on the individual case - most are fitted immediately or within 24 hours).
Some bruising and swelling will eventually occur the next day. Post-operative pain is mostly very moderate.
You will be given an antibiotic to prevent infection, a painkiller if needed, a disinfectant mouthwash to disinfect and ice to recover fast and comfortably.
The following day Dr. Cris Piessens will give you a further examination and adjust your new teeth if necessary.
At the end of the week, after sutures are removed, a final check will be carried out
