Dental implants

Dental implants

Implantology represents today the most advanced treatment to replace teeth lost due to trauma or disease.

The lack of replacement of the teeth can cause a series of problems, among which are the displacement of neighboring teeth, pain in the temporomandibular joints, pain in the cervicofacial muscles, headaches…

What is a dental implant?

Implants are artificial titanium roots that work and look like natural teeth. Implant patients regain the ability to eat and can smile and speak with confidence, thus improving their quality of life.

Who can have dental implants?

Dental implants are indicated for those who have lost one or more teeth.

How will implants affect my quality of life?

You will gain security and confidence, you will be able to laugh again with total carefreeness, with a perfect mouth just as it was before and you will be able to chew and enjoy food without fear that your prosthesis will move or fall. In short: you will be yourself again.

Will the denture be durable and natural?

By going to regular check-ups and following the advice that we will give you, the durability of the implants can be the same as that of your natural teeth. The teeth replaced by implants will look like your own, since not only the functionality will be recovered, but also the aesthetics.

Only 5% of implants are lost and the vast majority is due to smoking, not attending check-ups and poor hygiene.

Advantages of dental implants

Dental implants can replace one or more teeth, making it possible for you to chew normally again and restore aesthetics to your smile.

Dental implants allow you to replace the teeth you have lost, achieving totally natural teeth.

All scientific studies show that the success rate of this therapy is very high.

Teeth and implants do not usually join each other, since mechanically they behave differently.

Implants are capable of preventing bone and soft tissue atrophy. By replacing missing teeth, we prevent other healthy teeth in your mouth from fading.

What care should I take after the implant is placed?

You should take care of dental implants as if they were your natural teeth. In periodic reviews we will teach you the most effective techniques to keep your implants in perfect condition..

Is implant placement painful?

No. By using local anesthesia you will not feel any pain in the preparation or placement of the implant. There can only be some post-operative discomfort that will be easily resolved with an anesthetic.

The first phase to obtain new teeth is to do a thorough study to know the quality and quantity of bone available, using X-rays, plaster casts, photographs and a dental CT scan

After this, we will decide, if we can offer you a traditional dental implant treatment or a procedure for the insertion of dental implants with a minimally invasive surgery.

Implant placement with minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive techniques allow us to reduce intervention and recovery times, minimizing postoperative complications such as bleeding, pain or inflammation. In this way, greater well-being is achieved after any type of intervention with more reliable and predictable results.

Stitches are also avoided in most cases. This reduces inflammation, the risk of infection and, of course, pain

The intervention time is reduced by up to 70%. This is because, with the help of the computer, we can plan each step of the intervention in advance, making the intervention shorter.

With this type of surgery, the intervention is planned and simulated virtually, so the results are much more accurate.

Guided surgery: step by step

Next, we are going to detail the steps that we carry out in our dental clinic to perform computer-guided surgery:

Assessment by the specialist

The first step before carrying out any intervention is the assessment by the implantologist.

They will perform an oral examination of the patient and with the help of different tests will determine if the guided surgery technique is adequate.

3D study of the mouth

With the help of a 3D intraoral scanner, we obtain a three-dimensional image of the patient's jaw.

Once we have the data from the scanner, these are transferred to the computer and with the help of CAD / CAM software, the implantologist performs the study of the maxillary bone. Thus, you can assess the most appropriate place to place the implant and optimize the amount of bone tissue available, which avoids us having to resort to grafts or techniques that have a greater degree of complexity.

Surgical splint

Next, and with the help of the aforementioned software, a surgical splint is manufactured that serves as a guide to insert the implants in the location and position previously planned.

Intervention

This surgical technique has notable advantages over traditional implant placement surgery. The surgical splint avoids having to open the gum as is done in traditional surgery. In addition, the risk of affecting any important anatomical structure is eliminated.
