TECHNIQUES: DENTAL IMPLANTS

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

A dental implant consists of the implantation of a titanium root inside the maxillary bones, to provide a stable and secure support that allows the placement of one or more dental pieces.

Titanium is used to make dental implants, due to the high degree of tolerance of the human body with this material and together with its qualities of hardness, lightness and resistance.

PURPOSE AND ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

  • When replacing dental pieces, various advantages are obtained, from functionalities to aesthetics.
  • The use of movable dental prostheses, more uncomfortable and less effective, is dispensed with.
  • The ability to chew effectively is restored.
  • It allows to replace damaged pieces without harming healthy teeth.
  • It makes the tooth look more natural.The process of bone resorption that results in the “mouth of an old man” effect is avoided.

TREATMENT AND TECHNIQUES

STUDY AND PLANNING OF THE IMPLANT

The first thing that is done is a detailed study of the situation and treatment possibilities that the patient has, for this a complete analysis of the mouth and the general health of the patient is carried out.

CURRENT IMPLEMENTATION TECHNIQUES

  1. Immediate loading implants.

There is the possibility of carrying out the extraction, the placement of the implants and the new parts in less than 3 hours. In addition, through computer-guided microsurgery, implants and prostheses can be placed without the need to open the gum.

  1. Deferred loading implants.

It is possible that an immediate loading implant can not be performed due to problems with the bone. In this case, a microsurgery is performed to perform the implant, once it has been attached to the bone, between two and three months, the final dental prosthesis is placed.

  1. Reparative bone microsurgery.

In case the amount of bone is insufficient to perform the implant, bone grafts or osteodistraction techniques are performed to recover the lost bone.

  1. Zygomatic implants.

If recovering the bone mass of the upper jaw takes a long time, the implants can be placed immediately in the zygomatic bone.

Dental implants are performed with dental anesthesia in the clinic, without the need for hospital admission, and are not painful. The postoperative period is simple and complications do not usually occur.

MAINTENANCE OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

If we want to avoid problems during and after treatment, proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the specialist are essential.

Remember that a healthy mouth opens the doors of the world.
