Step 1 – Smile Design and Surgery Plan
Our Patient Assistant will help you coordinate an appointment at the most convenient clinic. The smile design team will take the necessary photographs to design your ideal smile.
Then we will obtain a CBCT that will allow us to perform a full 3D analysis of your teeth and bones. Together with the Smile Design Team, they will review, modify and approve the Smile Design.
The team of multidisciplinary dentists will analyze the case from all points of view and determine the best treatment plan to achieve the ideal smile. Your dentist will explain all the recommended treatment options to you and help you decide which one is the most convenient for you.
Treatment plan and budget approval.
Step 2 – Navigated or guided surgery and provisional smile
El cirujano dental realizará cualquiera de estos 2 procedimientos.
- GUIDED SURGERY – This means that they will use devices to guide the placement of each implant, ensuring that they are positioned exactly in the position they should be.
- NAVIGATED SURGERY – It is the equivalent of using a GPS when we are driving. This is a new technology called connecting planning done on the computer with the patient’s mouth in real time. It helps us to have greater precision in our surgery.
The cosmetic specialist will place the provisional smile. Made with beautiful and natural materials, it will last until the implants are ready for the final prosthesis.
Step 3 – Final smile, beautiful and natural.
- Your dentist will review your implants and confirm that everything is as expected..
- Final placement of the prosthesis
- Fit and aftercare photos.
Single Implants + 2 or 3 pieces
When we are missing a single tooth the best option is always a dental implant as we maintain the bone, we do not touch the teeth adjacent to the edentulous area and it is easier to clean than a bridge.
In areas where more than two pieces are missing, two or more implants may be used to replace more than three pieces. Depending on the area to be rehabilitated and the size of the implants, it will be necessary to place more or fewer implants.
Thus, in the anterior (incisor and canine) areas, two implants can be used to rehabilitate three or four teeth, but in the posterior (molar) zones, being the zone of maximum mastication force, a greater number of implants are preferable (For example three implants for four teeth or three implants for three teeth), always taking into account the available length and bone volume.
In areas where more than two pieces are missing, two or more implants can be used to replace more than three pieces.
