Just 20km from the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, is Dental Centre Osovnikar. As a family-owned dental clinic, we have 20 years’ experience in expert dental care. In 2015 a new clinic was opened in Škofja Loka where implantology, oral surgery, prosthetics, periodontology, aesthetic dentistry, children’s dentistry and digital diagnostics are practiced. A team of five dentists, two oral surgeons and two orthodontists provide patients with the best possible care through interdisciplinary collaboration and consultation. We use only the highest quality and most current products from leading, certified manufacturers. Use of the latest technology allows doctors to plan procedures precisely, which ensures patients receive a higher quality service.
When visiting Dental Centre Osovnikar our patients can begin by admiring the medieval town of Škofja Loka from the terrace. A dentist will then welcome you to discuss the procedure and, after an initial examination, will decide if any dental imaging is required. Patients who need implants usually undergo 3D CBCT imaging so staff can immediately and accurately analyse anatomical structures and plan treatment. If the gums are healthy, procedures can begin, otherwise we start with a dental hygiene and periodontal treatment.
For over ten years Dental Centre Osovnikar has been using a Cerec Cad/Cam device that produces inlays, onlays, full ceramic crowns and zirconia bridges in just one visit. This means that a patient can receive a new restoration in a single visit without a conventional impression-taking.
We also have solutions for patients who have missing teeth. Dental implants have high rates of success and nowadays this is a safe and very common procedure. Those without any teeth can benefit from the All-on-4 method where a fixed full-arch prosthesis is provided shortly after the surgery.
Cosmetic dentistry is available for that beautiful smile. Tooth-whitening, ceramic veneers, reshaping of teeth, closure of gaps and laser surgery of the gums can give patients the smile they always dreamed of.
We work closely with leading universities and educational institutions all over the world, and have a commitment to complete patient satisfaction. Once the procedure is complete, you’re free to explore beautiful Škofja Loka!
