Dr Wim de Beer qualified as a Dentist from the University of Pretoria and he is a passionate Dentist. Wim specialised in the field of aesthetic dentistry and obtained his Master of Science in Oral Implantology through the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.
He has the confidence when placing Straumann® dental implants and believe it to be these high-quality standards that ensures long-term safety and reliability. Besides the obvious advances in external design, there are two elements that set Straumann® apart. Straumann® implants are stronger than conventional implants and are made from Roxolid™ – a new material with incredible strength. Roxolid™ is a combination of titanium and zirconium and this increased strength allows their implants to be smaller and less prone to breakages, complications and failure. Straumann® dental implants also have a special surface which is hydrophilic and allows faster and more predictable integration with surrounding tissue. The videos below illustrate both these qualities and more.
What To Expect From Dental Implants
2 Appointments – case dependant
Your first appointment
Contrary to belief, receiving a dental implant need not be painful or traumatic. We know that the experience is as much about the physical procedure as it is about the mental process. We prepare you for both. Which is why we allow you to relax with a cup of tea before we apply the anaesthetic and allow time for it to work. Dr Wim will then perform the procedure which takes between 10 and 20 minutes depending on each case. We place your dental implant with precision and screw a healing cap into position. He then takes a radiograph (x-ray) to confirm the position of the dental implant. Apart from slight discomfort for a day, 9/10 patients report no pain following the procedure. Your next appointment will be in 12 weeks and will involve the manufacture of the final implant crown.
Your second appointment
Now that your implant is integrated and solid we may proceed to make the perfect dental crown. Again, Dr Wim will once again anaesthetise the area and allow time for it to work properly. He will then place your implant abutment, which connects the implant body to the crown portion. Once in place and confirmed, a scan will be taken using the latest intra-oral scanner from Sirona®. This allows them to create a 3D digital model on a computer where the design process starts. By the time your crown has been milled and hits the oven at 840°C, you will be enjoying your second cup of coffee whilst catching up on your favourite Netflix. Once this is complete, your crown will be placed, and your bite will be checked to make sure that it is accurate. We recommend that your dental implants should be examined every 6 months.
Today, the country is ranked by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) as the leader in the African market for health tourism.
