Are you looking for dental implant treatment with the latest technologies?
At Crooke y Laguna we have Dr. Eduardo Crooke González de Aguilar, an expert in implantology and oral surgery with more than 20 years of experience. He, together with Dr. Rosa Gómez Laguna, specialist in implantology, periodontics and esthetics, coordinate the implant area in our dental centers.
Thanks to our commitment, experience and team of excellent professionals, we can offer technologically and qualitatively outstanding dental implant treatments:
- Natural and innovative prosthesis with monobloc zirconia (more esthetic and resistant).
- Pioneers in 100% digital methodology.
- Fixed teeth in 24 hours.
Types of Dental Implant Treatments
Single implants and bridges
The best solution to replace one or more missing parts.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
To regain function and aesthetics after the loss of all teeth in a jaw with our special 3StepSmiles™ methodology.
Patients with bone loss
Latest available techniques that make implants with lack of bone in the maxilla or mandible possible, thanks to bone regeneration or zygomatic implants.
How implants will change your life?
- Better appearance: with dental implants we can recover or improve the aesthetics of our smile.
- Improved speech: dental implants give you the comfort of speaking without worrying about your denture moving.
- Greater comfort: by having fixed teeth that provide great force for chewing.
- Improved Self-esteem: Dental implants can restore your smile and confidence.
- Improved digestion: by improving chewing and regaining oral health, many digestive problems disappear or improve.
- Durability: implants can last a lifetime as long as we maintain correct oral hygiene and attend our maintenance visits with the hygienist every 6 months.
Financing options avaliable
At Crooke and Laguna we have financing options available to our patients (up to 60 months at no additional cost). What are you waiting for to smile again? Call now and check the conditions at the clinic:
Frequently asked questions about dental implants
What is a dental implant?
The implant is a prefabricated titanium root that is placed in the site where a tooth is missing, replacing the natural root of the tooth.
What diagnostic tests are required?
- Dental scanner:
Three-dimensional, life-size image of the patient’s mouth. We measure the lengths, volumes and densities to be able to choose the exact size of the implant without damaging any anatomical and/or nervous structure. It is essential for a good diagnosis. At Crooke & Laguna we have state-of-the-art radiological equipment so that the patient does not have to travel to another center for these diagnostic tests.
2. Intraoral and extraoral photographs to study the case in depth and be able to see the prosthetic space and measure the esthetics to be achieved.
3. Digital model records: for the study of the prosthetic space and design of future teeth.
Is it painful to get a dental implant?
It is a simple and painless technique. When we are going to place 1 or 2 implants, it is a shorter and less uncomfortable procedure than a filling. However, in the case of patients who suffer a lot of anxiety or who are going to undergo a more complex rehabilitation, conscious sedation can be used so that the patient is totally relaxed during the intervention.
How long does the procedure last?
Normally, an intervention lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, although it depends on the extent of the area to be treated.
Are implants for life?
With proper maintenance, both at home and in the dental clinic, implants can last forever. However, just as periodontitis or “pyorrhea” occurs in the teeth, implants can be affected by peri-implantitis, which can cause the implant to be lost, so we should not be confident and we should attend our periodic cleaning and maintenance check-ups and take control x-rays when the specialist determines it.
Will I be able to eat as normal?
Yes, once the treatment is finished, the patient will be able to eat normally and will recover the confidence he/she had lost due to the absence of teeth.
Can everyone wear a dental implant?
Any person can take it, except those patients who suffer from serious diseases that lead them to have a very weak immune system, or patients who have been treated for more than 3 years with bisphosphonates (which are used mainly in patients with osteoporosis due to menopause or other diseases). In these cases it is necessary to carry out previous complementary tests to see if it can be performed.
Why may I lose an implant?
It can occur for different reasons that can be grouped in 3 groups:
- Factors related to surgical technique: good technique, quality implant, bone cooling….
- Factors related to the prosthesis: quality of the material, fit, occlusion.
- Patient-related factors: systemic diseases (diabetes, immunosuppression, etc.), smoking, periodontitis, poor hygiene, lack of maintenance by a professional.
How many visits will I have for treatment?
It depends, for a single implant with 4-5 visits in total is enough. When it is a full mouth rehabilitation, more visits will be needed to perfectly adjust the function and esthetics of the mouth, although with our new 3Step Smiles™ methodology the number of appointments is almost halved to 5-6 versus the 8-9 that were needed with the conventional methodology.
What advantages do they have over fixed bridges and dentures?
In order to make a fixed bridge, the teeth adjacent to the area of the missing tooth must be ground or ground down. This, in addition to entailing an unnecessary loss of enamel, involves the risk of damaging the patient’s nerve (and consequently having to root canalize the tooth).
In cases where a large number of teeth have been lost, there are only two alternatives: removable prostheses (removable) or implants. Here, the advantage of implants is clear, in addition to having a fixed prosthesis, we get a better chewing function and better aesthetics.
It is important to point out that by placing implants we favor the maintenance of the bone, however, when we use bridges or removable prostheses, this bone becomes thinner with the passage of time.
