How our 5 day implant system works
Our partner dentists offer a ground-breaking procedure that makes dental restoration possible for almost every patient. It is even suitable for people who have previously failed implantation procedures due to severely atrophied jaw bones and bone recession.
We were the first to start working in the UK with dentists using this revolutionary implant system, ensuring that British patients have access to a faster and more reliable solution for permanent teeth.
This type of minimally invasive implant surgery (or ‘flapless’ implant surgery, to use the technical term) has been used in dentistry for over 25 years and is a largely painless method that does not cause any bleeding. In essence, instead of creating several incisions in the patient’s gums, the surgeon uses a circular punch to create a hole in the patient’s gum tissue into which a titanium bolt (artificial tooth root) is placed and screwed directly into the jawbone, providing a strong and stable support for a bridge for new teeth. The patient has a local anaesthetic or IV sedation and in the vast majority of cases no additional pain medication is necessary. The patients receive their final bridge immediately after the implants have been inserted.
There is no need to wait through a lengthy recovery period as the new teeth fabricated by the dental technician can be fixed in place within 5 days.
Not only do implants ensure better chewing ability and a greatly improved facial appearance, but our patients also tell us that dental implants enhance their quality of life, boost self-confidence and promote general psychological and emotional well-being.

What does the treatment involve?On the first day the implantologist examines the patient’s dental and oral condition and discusses their findings with them. Once everything has been thoroughly explained, treatment commences with IV sedation and the extraction of any loose or infected teeth, following which the implantologist inserts the implants. The last step involves the taking of impressions which are then sent to the clinic’s dental laboratory.
This procedure takes approximately 3 hours in total, although patients relate that it seems much shorter and is also painless thanks to local anesthetics and IV sedation.
Highly skilled technicians then design and make the new teeth for the implantologist to fit on the fifth day. At the end of the procedure the patient is required to stay for a further 2 working days so that the implantologist can check that everything is in order.
How is this possible in just 5 days?Conventional implants are usually fixed in spongy bone, as illustrated. Due to its very nature, spongy bone requires 3 to 6 months in order to fuse together with implants to provide a stable foundation for new teeth.
Swiss 5 day implants are inserted into the layer of hard bone beyond the spongy bone, as illustrated. This layer of hard bone provides an immediate, stable foundation for new teeth, while the implants gradually fuse together with the spongy bone.
Why are sinus lifts and bone grafts unnecessary with Swiss 5 day implants?The sinus is located above the pre-molar and molar teeth. The bone in the area below the sinus is relatively thin in normal circumstances and so people suffering from bone recession in this area are unable to receive implants without a sinus lift and bone graft, which involves raising the sinus membrane and grafting bone onto existing bone, as illustrated (below, left).
Swiss implants, as can be seen in the illustration (below, right), are fitted at an angle of up to 30 degrees, thereby avoiding the sinus area and the need for a sinus lift and bone graft.
How is the Swiss implant system suitable for most people with insufficient bone for conventional implants?In cases of bone recession (due to diabetes or the menopause, for example) it is mostly the spongy bone which recedes and as conventional implants are fixed in spongy bone, bone recession renders their installation impossible.
Swiss implants are fixed in the layer of hard bone beyond the spongy bone and as a result are not soley dependent on spongy bone for their stability. For this reason, almost everyone suffering from bone recession is able to receive Swiss implants.
Ever increasing numbers of people are opting to have this treatment, which provides a permanent solution that didn’t previously exist.
