They consist of the placement of a prefabricated titanium root in the place where there is an absence of teeth, replacing the natural root of the same. It is a simple and painless technique, in the case of patients who suffer a lot of anxiety or have to undergo complex rehabilitation, conscious sedation can be used.
Phases of single implant treatment
For the implant placement, the case is first studied and planned. In the clinic, diagnostic tests are carried out that consist of taking scans, photographs and recording digital models.
Dental Scans and Digital models
With the dental scanner we measure the lengths, volumes and densities to be able to choose the exact size of the implant. The digital model records allow us to interlace the radiographic image with the real image of the patient’s mouth.
Intraoral and extraoral photographs to study the case in depth and be able to see the prosthetic space and measure the aesthetics that we must achieve in order to place the implants in the ideal position.
The implant is placed through a simple surgery, which in many cases will be navigated or guided surgery. We are pioneers in the placement of these implants by navigated surgery throughout Europe, this type of surgery is very precise and minimally invasive, so recovery is fast.
The final smile
You will finally get a tooth that mimics a natural tooth, feels and functions like a natural one. Thanks to this, it will preserve the bone of your jaw, the chewing functions and it will notably improve the aesthetics of the mouth.
What are Implant Bridges?
En áreas donde faltan dos o más piezas, se pueden utilizar dos o más implantes para sustituir más de tres piezas. Dependiendo de la zona a rehabilitar y del tamaño de los implantes, hará falta colocar mayor o menor número de implantes.
En las zonas anteriores podemos usar dos implantes para rehabilitar tres o cuatro dientes, pero en las zonas posteriores, al ser la zona de máxima carga en la masticación, es preferible un mayor número de implantes.
Implants and Bridges on Implants vs Fixed Bridges
What to do when several teeth are missing?
To make a fixed bridge, the teeth contiguous to the area of the missing tooth must be carved. This supposes an unnecessary loss of enamel and an increased risk of suffering irritation of the tooth’s nerve and consequently, having to perform a root canal.
In cases where a large number of pieces have been lost, we only have two alternatives, removable prostheses or implants.
In these cases, the advantage of implants is clear, since in addition to being able to carry fixed teeth, they help us to have a better chewing function and better aesthetics. It is important to note that when placing implants we favor bone maintenance, however, when we use fixed bridges or removable prostheses, this bone diminishes over time, thus making future implant placement difficult.
It is more comfortable and feels more natural than a fixed bridge.
Better aesthetics by better preserving bone and gum volume.
Keeping adjoining parts intact.
Better chewing function and therefore better digestion.
