Computer-guided implant surgery involves the virtual planning of the treatment to be performed. This is executed exactly in the patient’s mouth thanks to a surgical guide that indicates the position, angulation and depth of the implants as previously planned on the computer.
Especially indicated for cases of total rehabilitation in patients who have already lost their teeth. It is also recommended in patients with coagulation disorders.
Clinical procedure that tries to achieve the clarification of the color of one or several teeth by applying a chemical agent and trying not to alter its basic structure.
Ideally, to achieve a whiter and brighter smile is to combine 2 methods of bleaching: whitening at home and whitening in consultation.
They are braces that can be constructed of various types of material: ceramic and sapphire. The main advantage of the aesthetic braces is that they are made of materials very similar to the color of the teeth and therefore go more unnoticed. They are indicated in patients with high aesthetic demands.
Piece used to replace lost teeth, and that unlike the “classic implants” in that it is metal free.
These types of implants are presented as an alternative for those patients with possible allergies to titanium or having problems with the use of metals, since zirconium is considered a ceramic.
In some cases, the bone available for implant placement is insufficient, either because it has been a long time since the loss of the teeth, or because of previous infections in the area that destroyed the bone. In those cases we have to resort to guided bone regeneration. For this we use xeno grafts (bone of other species such as cow, pig or horse) with collagen membranes that act as a barrier to allow bone regeneration, or autografts, taking bone from the same patient from other areas of the mouth. In this way part of the lost bone can be recovered to allow the placement of dental implants.
Artificial substitute for the natural root of the tooth. It is a small piece of titanium, biocompatible material, which heals in the bone and osseointegrates. Thanks to this fixation of titanium to the bone we can replace one or more missing teeth.
Specialty of dentistry that is responsible for the study of gum diseases (gingivitis and periodontitis).
GINGIVITIS is an infectious disease that manifests itself by bleeding gums. It is reversible, does not involve bone loss. It can be mild, moderate or severe depending on the degree of inflammation.
PERIODONTITIS or “pyorrhea” is a chronic disease also of infectious origin, which causes the loss of bone that supports the teeth and, consequently in the long or medium term, the loss of dental pieces if treatment is not performed in time.
When a tooth decay or fracture occurs in an anterior tooth we have to look for maximum aesthetics when restoring it. For this, the composite must have special fluorescence and polishing characteristics.
With aesthetic composites we can also restore the aesthetics of the previous sector by making veneers. This treatment is faster than porcelain veneers and requires less carving, but it is dyed more with food and has some limitations in extensive rehabilitation. We also work with veneers of preformed composites that adapt to the dental surface and modify the color or shape of the tooth.
Navigated surgery for oral implantology is the equivalent of using a GPS when we are driving. This new technology allows us to connect the planning done on the computer with the patient’s mouth in real time. That is, it helps us to have more precision in our surgery.
